Re: [tor-talk] Not able to download Tor to droid
The url Tor was downloaded from is guardianproject.info/apps/orbot
direct download(.apk). I tried doing so again and the tablet operating
system indicated it had downloaded, -- but had not. I did get rid of all
the google and other commercial apps on the tablet. Every one I could
find. Are any of these apps required to download Orbot? -- Will not
download from the google store since they want registration and do track.
The ISP does not appear to be a factor since it is public, a coffee shop.
Have had no problems downloading Tor updates to Windows machines there.
The droid I'm trying to download Tor to is a tablet, not a phone. Thanks
for your help. libertyinperil
