The installation seems to be taking very long - is this right? | Back to the top
Depending on the size of the jar (Java application file) and the device you use, mycitymate may take a few minutes to install. Please be patient.
During the installation it says that the file is from an "untrusted source". Is this a problem? | Back to the top
"Sideloading" (transferring the jar from your computer) an application bypasses the usual java security procedures, so this warning is unavoidable. You can just confirm the installation by clicking "Yes" and proceed. If you prefer to download a copy with a security certificate, please download the application by visiting mycitymate.mobi/go with your mobile browser.
If you have any problems with installation not addressed here, please send us some feedback with the details, and we will look into it.
