Can I use Fieldwire on my Windows device?

Follow

Overview & background

We do not currently have a fully operational native Windows app for Fieldwire. The current version is still in Beta. Despite this, there is a workaround you can use to run the Android version of the application on your Windows device.

 

Using BlueStacks on your Windows device


With the help of BlueStacks, you can run our Android app on your Windows Surface or Phone.


Step 1:

Download BlueStacks through this link.

Step 2:

On
ce the program installer has finished, open up BlueStacks and search for “Fieldwire” in the search bar at the top of the page.

No search results will appear, but there will be a link to search the Google Play store for 'Fieldwire'. Click on that to connect directly to the Google Play Store.


Note: You will need to log into your Google account or create a new one to access the Play Store.




Step 3: 

Once you connect to your Google account, you need to set up your BlueStacks account and enable syncing between the Play Store and BlueStacks. Once completed, open up the Fieldwire 
Android app page and download it on your device.





Note: You’ll likely see a pop up screen asking you to complete account setup and add payment options, but you can just press the “Skip” button since Fieldwire is free to download.

 


Step 4:

After downloading the Android app through BlueStacks, log into Fieldwire like you normally would and you can access your Fieldwire projects on your Windows device! 

To access Fieldwire from then on, open up BlueStacks in your Windows launch menu (or a desktop shortcut) and launch Fieldwire from there.
