    I am developing with the Telerik platform on iOS/Android devices and using the in-browser client. I can build apps using App builder on iOS devices. I just send the code to my iPod and the app starts syncing with the client. However, I can not do that in my app using Android. I get the error message, that I attached, after obtaining the link using a QR analyser. 

    Is the same procedure that I followed on iOS that I should follow on Android? What am I doing wrong?

    By the way, I am getting a build error after building it as an app package for Android. It was working fine yesterday and it is the same app that works on my iPod...

    Thank you.

    Hi Leonardo,

    It seems that the QR code scanner you are using is not getting integrated with the companion app. So, what you need to do now is the following:
    1. Verify that the companion app is installed. (I am assuming this is true.)
    2. Build your app for the Android companion app and scan the QR code. Note, that by default, AppBuilder will suggest to build an application package for Android instead of build for the companion app.
    3. Locate the share button or option for the QR code (it might be a button in the app interface or you might call it from the menu button for the app).
    4. Share the app to the companion app.

    In addition, so far, we have found out that this QR code scanner works good with the companion app.

    Since this workaround is not really intuitive, we are already working on providing a built-in QR code scanner for a future version of the Android companion app.
