Installing the Aila Demo Scanning App

October 3, 2018

We’ve created a simple demo application that lets you try out the scanning features of your Aila devices. Follow these instructions for downloading and installing the app to get up and running quickly.

These instructions apply to Aila’s Mobile Imager and Interactive Kiosk. 

Note: if you haven’t yet, please first visit our Developer Resources page to get started. 


Download the demo app “IPA” to a computer that has iTunes installed. The download is password protected—enter the password you were given when ordering the demo kit.



Connect your device and, if alerted to, choose “Trust this Computer.”



Double-click the downloaded file on your computer to open it. You may need to edit your security preferences to allow the app to open: System Preferences → Security & Privacy → “Open Anyway.” demo_app_install2


At this point you should be on your device summary page in iTunes on your computer. Locate the IPA file in your file manager and then drag to the ‘On My Device’ Section in iTunes. The app should begin copying to your device. 

Note: you may need to update your device to the latest version of iOS for the demo app to install. demo_app_install3


When you try to open the newly installed demo app, you will be prompted to trust the developer of the app.



Navigate to Settings → General → Device Management → Padloc Inc. → and click ‘Trust Padloc Inc.’trust_padlock

Navigate back to the Aila Demo app, allow access to your camera and microphone when prompted, and you will now be ready to go!
