c.  Check the box to allow unknown sources.

d.  A default warning will appear, select OK.


Our app is for research purposes only and not available on Google Play (Android Market), therefore it can only be installed as an “unknown source.”

Step 5.  Open and Start the app. Once the app has been started it will continue to run in the background.


Step 6.  Go about your regular daily routine. You may experience decreased battery life. We recommend carrying your charger with you and recharging your device frequently until the completion of this study.


Step 7.  On October 11, 2013 you will receive an email notifying you to uninstall the app.


For help installing the app, you can visit the University of Idaho Engineering Physics Building Room EP 115 Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday 8:00am-5:00pm.
