X7 App installation tutorial
In response to the problems some users encounter when installingapps on the X7, we provide the following tutorial and hope it will help you useyour X7 to its full potential.
The X7 is based on the open-source Android system, and may be usedin much the same way as an Android smartphone. It must be noted however that if you’ve switched the X7 to Pure Musicmode, all operation will be limited to within the FiiO Music app, so you won’tbe able to use any other app or access the Android homescreen.  Rest assured however that your apps are stillinstalled and accessible once you go back to Android mode:  pull down the settings menu from the upper rightof the screen, click on the first button on the upper left to change it from“Pure Music mode” to “Android mode”, and reboot the X7 to switch to Androidmode.
In Android mode, there are 3 methods to install apps:
A.      Obtaining and installing apps from the “FiiO Marketplace” .
Respecting users’ different usage needs, FiiO has collectedpopular music and utility apps in use worldwide, tested them for compatibilitywith the X7 and put them in the “FiiO Marketplace” shortcut on the X7’s androidhomescreen.  You may choose and installapps from this site easily, with ease of mind.
Step-by-step:
1、  Pull down the settings menu from the upper right of the screen,click on the Wi-Fi icon to turn on the X7’s WiFi, and hold the icon to enterthe Wi-Fi menu and choose and connect to an available WiFi network;

3、  Browse the list for an app you would like to install and click itsicon—the app will start downloading in the background;
4、  After downloading is complete, pull down the notifications pagefrom the upper left of the screen and click on the “Download complete”notification.  The app installationdialog will appear and you may click “Install” to install the app;
5、  After installation, the app will appear in the X7’s app drawer,and you may click it to run it.
(note: the X7 can queue multiple app downloads.)

Great Information. Very useful & handy. Perhaps you could put all this as a leaflet or Annexure with the device packaging. Just a thought.
