Students can install the app using Apple, Google or Microsoft app stores. On school devices where these are available, this is the best (and usually only route).
The app was designed for students to use on their own devices. The Windows version is ideal for this and for Physics teachers to have it on their school computer.
*For security reason no IOS or Android versions of the app are provided outside of the app stores. In particular, any Android apk files obtained outside of the store are not secure.
The windows app uses Universal Windows Platform, UWP. So, the app is sandboxed and can only access a limited number of safe features and files allowed by Microsoft.
The app is signed and Microsoft authenticates it during the install. This is the safest and most secure framework for apps on windows at the moment.
Important: one of the security measures is the app is installed per-user, inside a users own space, not per-machine.
The UWP format is secure and safe but unfortunately, in order to achieve this, it cannot be distributed packages into the MSI format.
