You can download Influenca for your operating system (Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and Android) in the current version 0.0.7 here:
Download Windows Installer
Download Mac OSX Installer
Download Linux Installer
Download Android APK
Instructions for setup:
Windows: Influenca can be installed via double-clicking on the downloaded .exe file. Please follow the instructions in the installer then.
Mac OSX: Influenca can be installed via double-clicking on the downloaded .dmg file. As the Influenca installer image has not been signed as an official OSX software packge, the Mac Gatekeeper will display a warning in newer OSX versions while starting Influenca for the first time. This is expected behavior and does not point to malicious software in this case. You can open Influenca by doing a right-click on the downloaded .dmg file and choosing “Open” in the context menu. OSX will ask you if you intend to run the software. Please acknowledge this by clicking on “Open”. If you start Influenca the next time, this procedure should not be necessary anymore.
Linux: Please unzip the downloaded .zip archive into a folder of your choice. Then, please open a terminal, navigate to this folder and start Influenca by issuing the following command: ./Influenca
Android: The downloaded .apk file can be installed on your phone by clicking on “Install”. As Influenca has not been signed yet, you need to allow apps from unknown sources. For this, you click on “Settings” as soon as the security warning is displayed and move the slider for “Unknown sources” to activated. After this, Influenca can be started from the apps menu.
