to sideload an application (smart phone)


Senior Member
Hello there,
I am not too sure how to translate "sideload" (In contrast, some VPNs, including a number of heavy hitters, can only be used with Amazon devices if you download the app from the Google Play Store or sideload it, which is a more involved process.)
I have: "...ou si vous la rechargez latéralement, ce qui est un processus plus complexe."
Is this correct?

    Thank you. Fichier APK pour Android. cela irait pour la description? (download the app from the Google Play Store or sideload it)
    "Télécharger latéralement" ne rend pas l'idée?

    Je ne pense pas que "télécharger latéralement / à part" ne soit parlant pour l'utilisateur, en général on parle d'installation par fichier APK, je rejoint Kecha sur le sujet.
