Ava provides simple effective Android. iPhone and Windows phone apps for employees, managers and (Android only) sending SMS text messages or texting. These work seamlessly with the Ava advanced agency web system. They do, however, need to know which of our customers will be sending you messages and to whom you will be replying. Android phone do this via a Gmail account and you need to link you Android phone to a Gmail account before you install any of our apps from the Google play store.
This is how you do it....
To download your Ava smart app to your Andriod phone: you need to have a Gmail account linked to your phone.
If you know that your phone is already linked to an Android account (this help page is automatically shown when you click on the download app link) close this tab and the app download page is shown on the other new tab.
If you get the following error:
It may help to read this article by Google about the play store... Error: You haven't accessed the Google Play Store app on your device with this email account.
If you are not sure: then here are the steps to link your Android phone to an existing gmail account or create a new free Gmail account.
If you have already downloaded an app from the Google Play Store, when you follow these instructions you should see your Gmail account. You may then close this page and continue with the Play Store download page tab.
The first few icons or buttons will change slightly from phone to phone so they should look similar:
On the bottom bar of your android phone you should see an "Apps" icon:
Click on it and then find the settings icon:
Open the Settings menu and go to Accounts:
If you already have a gmail account you should use it. Do not worry you can have mutiple devices on the same account, exixting email accounts will continue to work as before:
Now sign in or create a new account (we will use firstname.lastname@example.org but you chould choose a more appropriate name if its a new account).
And enter a memorable password.
Accept the term and conditions (as ususal you have no choice)
