Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 16.09.44HERE for Android launched initially as an exclusive on Samsung. Now you can get it for other Android smartphones too.

Pino says they’ve learnt quite a bit from the feedback and are fixing some things based on that, including a cache cleaner that kept on deleting voice navigation.

HERE are some instructions on side loading to your Android phone:

Download using your Android smartphone:

  1. Tap on ‘Get the app now’.
  2. Confirm the download and choose the directory on your smartphone in which you’d like to store the apk file (e.g. “Downloads”).
  3. Open a file manager on your smartphone and tap the directory to which you downloaded HERE_beta_175.apk. If you do not yet have a file manager installed, you can go to the Google Play Store and install e.g. ES file explorer, Astro file manager orFile Expert.
  4. Tap HERE_beta_175.apk to start the installation.
  5. Your phone will ask you to allow the installation. To do that, go to Settings in your phone, then Security (which could also be under Settings > More Options). Then tick the “Unknown sources” box. This allows apps from sources other than the official app store to be installed on your phone.
  6. When the installation is finished, you can open the HERE app from the app drawer.
