(Add links to relevant ScummVM Google Play pages and instructions for installing.)
(Removed duplicate information and added a link to the new docs. Added a “Developer information” section and moved the daily build information here. This will probably move to the user documentation in the future.)

    The touchscreen can be used in two modes: direct mode and touchpad mode. The default mode is touchpad mode.
 
   
 
    When in direct mode, the mouse cursor moves to the touched point on screen.
 
    In touchpad mode, the mouse cursor is independent of the touched point, it
 
    is moved relative to its current position - like on a touchpad.
 
   
 
    The Android version of ScummVM doesn't have an input configuration dialog yet,
 
    but as a temporary workaround, touchpad mode can be toggled with the "Mixed AdLib/MIDI mode"
 
    checkbox on the MIDI tab in ScummVM's main options dialog. Restart ScummVM after changing it.

Most users will install/update the latest stable signed release build and plugins from the Google Play store directly on their device.<br>
 
The ScummVM developer page for this is [https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=ScummVM here].<br>
 
It is required to install the main ScummVM application from [https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.scummvm.scummvm here] before installing the required engine plugins.
 
  
For users with Android devices lacking the Google Play store access, zip files with signed apks will be provided on the download page and these can be installed with a file manager

as per the instructions for daily builds below.
 
 
 
=== Daily Builds ===
 
  
As the Play store version may be outdated or users may want to test newer development versions, the daily autogenerated builds from our buildbot can be found [http://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html here].<br>
+
To install a daily build:
However, to install them, a few points are needed to be dealt with:
+
* Uninstall all currently installed ScummVM versions including all plug-ins, as you can not install a daily build alongside the stable release.
* You will need to uninstall all currently installed ScummVM versions including all plugins, as you can not install a daily build alongside the stable release.
+
* Manually install the APK package. Instructions for manual installation are found in the [https://docs.scummvm.org/en/latest/other_platforms/android.html#manually-installing-the-apk-package Android user documentation]<br />
* In order to install the APKs from the daily build zip files, you will need a file manager. The free and open source Ghost Commander is recommended which can also unzip the zip files if downloaded directly to the device.
+
The daily builds are debug builds, which means that on some devices performance may be significantly slow for certain CPU intensive features and processes, such as video decoding and MT-32 emulation.
* In order to install these _UNSIGNED_ daily builds, you will need to enable the option in the Android Settings for Unknown sources.<br>This is usually under Settings->Security->Unknown Sources (Allow installation of apps from unknown sources).<br>You should turn this off again after you have installed both the main ScummVM apk and the required engine plugins.

ScummVM has been ported to the Android platform.

For more information, including how to install and use ScummVM on Android, see the Android user documentation

Developer information

Daily Builds

To test newer development versions, the daily autogenerated builds from the buildbot can be found here.

To install a daily build:

  • Uninstall all currently installed ScummVM versions including all plug-ins, as you can not install a daily build alongside the stable release.
  • Manually install the APK package. Instructions for manual installation are found in the Android user documentation

The daily builds are debug builds, which means that on some devices performance may be significantly slow for certain CPU intensive features and processes, such as video decoding and MT-32 emulation.
