Any mainstream device from a reputable manufacturer such as Samsung, Asus, Google, Sony, LG, Lenovo, HTC or RealWear® Supported: minimum of 1.5GB RAM and 1.4GHz dual-core CPU. Recommended: minimum of 2GB RAM and 1.4GHz quad-core CPU. It is recommended to use a device with a recent Android version that gets regular security updates.
Recommendations
1D Barcode Scanning If you need to scan 1-dimensional barcodes (vertical stripes), you require a device with a camera that has auto-focus. Screen Space If you have an app that requires a large amount of screen space (for example, users will be working with tables of information with several columns), or if you want to use tablet-specific JourneyApps features (such as columns and sidebars), then a large tablet (10 inches) is recommended. RealWear® devices We recommend that the latest version of Android System WebView is installed on RealWear® devices. We recommend installing the arm64-v8a + arm-v7a WebView variant, with Android 6.0+ listed as the minimum Android version. Troubleshooting note: We recommend first installing Android System WebView before installing a JourneyApps application. If an unsupported WebView version or variant was previously installed on a device, you may need to first uninstall Android System WebView as well the JourneyApps application from the device, before proceeding to install the correct WebView version as described above.
