Can you tell me which App this is please?

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Thanks
Likely you need to enable unknown sources. To do this
From the Homescreen go to Apps > Settings > More.
Go to Security > Device administration.
Check "Unknown Sources"
Then go to the actual files and press on it and it should then start the installation.
Let me know the results please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have unknown sources already ticked it is in my downloads and says it is installed but still will not open

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
What exactly happens when you try to open it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

nothing it just says cannot open file and when I press on it in the download section it just brings up the share and delete icons

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, can I see if I can open it on my S4? Then I can check if it is compatable.
Provide me the APK please via the below instructions
- Click the following link: http://www.wikisend.com
- Upload the file to that website
- Once it is uploaded, the resulting page will display a "File ID" number.
- Please, give me that "File ID Number"

Hi thanks for your help but I went to upload the files and suddenly they have opened !! so all is fine now thanks

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, running the installation again looks to be what got it installed, it may just had to refresh the unknown source setting and the install took some time.
Good it is all now and running.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
