Android binaries

Versions of PyQRS are available for the following four processor architectures:

ARM-based x86-based
64 bits
14.9 MB
last update 2023.02.28
also referred to as x64 and AMD64 instruction set
15.7 MB, last update 2023.02.28
32 bits      
for usually older ARM-devices
13.9 MB, last update 2023.02.28
15.7 MB
last update 2023.02.28

If you have a 64 bits ARM device, you can also run the 32 bits ARM version on it.
If you are having difficulties to determine which zip file you need, you can (temporarily) install an app that shows you the architecture. Inware is such an app. If you install it and go to the 'System' tab, you find the answer under 'Instruction Sets'.


  1. download one of the four PyQRS zip files on your Android device,
  2. unzip the downloaded file.
  3. The option 'Unknown sources' should be enabled (under Settings/Security).
  4. Then click/tap on the filename with extension .apk which was contained in the zip file; you will be asked whether you want to install the package.
  5. Confirm; the app does not need access to personal data or peripherals. In order to show Wikipedia pages and this web page, you will need a working internet connection.
