    NOTE

    • There is no account-specific installer for Player for Kiosks on Android or Player for Tablets. Simply install Player via the Apple App Store or Google Play and then follow the directions below.
    • Be sure to log into Player for Kiosks and Player for Tablets using the same IntuiFace account used with Composer and/or Management Console. Mismatched IntuiFace accounts will prevent Player from accessing experiences.
    • The clock for subscription licenses - the time during which you have entitled use of Player - begins at the moment of purchase. Because the entitlement clock starts at purchase, you may want to time purchasing with an active need.
    • Each subscription and subscription renewal – once payment has been collected - requires Internet-mediated activation (phone activation is not available) no more than five days after the beginning of a new period. After that five day grace period, in the absence of Internet-mediated activation, Player will cease to work. To activate these licenses, you must establish an Internet connection on each tablet. If you plan to use subscription-based licenses in an environment without Internet access, make sure those licenses will not expire while offline.
