AT&T intentionally disabled the installation of non-market applications on some phones, so you may need to use the Android Central Sideload Wonder Machine to install Pimlical (recommended only for tech-savvy users).


What happens Next?
Downloading Pimlical - You can download the application from the link that you will receive in a confirmation email that will be sent to you approximately 24-48 hours after purchase.
Installation Instructions
Simplest Method:
  • Go into SETTINGS | APPLICATIONS and check box UNKNOWN SOURCES (allow installation of non-Market applications).
  • Mail the confirmation email to yourself on the phone, then click on the link for the page, and then in your web browser, click on the download link for the Pimlical....APK file. After it downloads, click on notification icon and select it and it will then be installed. Or you can manually enter the download link for the file itself into your web browser on the phone.

Alternate Method (if you cannot do the above):

If you have never installed a third party application directly (i.e. not from the market), you will need this one time to download and install an application that will install APK (install-type) files. Otherwise if you have already installed this application, skip now to step 2

1. Go into the Market application (as of 2012 updated to "Google Play") and search for APKInstaller and download and install it

2. Go into SETTINGS | APPLICATIONS and check box UNKNOWN SOURCES (allow installation of non-Market applications).

3. Connect the USB cable to your PC and open up notification list at top by sliding it down.

4. Click on USB CONNECTED in notification list, and click button: TURN ON USB STORAGE and confirm. Some Android phones will have an option for USB Mass Storage instead.

5. In Windows file explorer - look for the device that represents your Android phone (typically E: or F: etc. - usually will be marked as a "Removable Disk"

6. Drag and drop the PimlicalA-xxx-yyy.apk file into the root of that device (i.e. if device is F:, it should be in F:). Note: some environments erroneously change 'apk' to 'zip' (!). if so, manually rename it back to 'apk' before proceeding.

7. Click button TURN OFF USB STORAGE (or select Charge Only).

8. Launch APKInstaller and select PimlicalA-xxx-yyy.apk (on subsequent installs, there will be a Pimlical folder - be sure to click on the APK file and not the folder!).

9. Click on all the obvious buttons to install Pimlical.

10. If you like, you can move PimlicalA to the SD card going into SETTINGS | APPLICATIONS | MANAGE APPLICATIONS. You can also uninstall it from there too.

If you are re-installing and want to perform a completely clean install, then after step 6 above, delete the Pimlical folder.

Release Notes:

  • There is a custom Android calendar widget for Pimlical available separately.
  • Alarms in the Android calendar database can either be managed by the built-in calendar application, or by Pimlical based upon a preference setting.
  • Pimlical/Android is only available for direct download from this web page. AT&T Phones may block the installation of non-market applications, but if you are tech savvy and don't mind a more involved installation, you can still install Pimlical using the Android Central Sideload Wonder Machine
