Congratulations! You have now finished creating sample app. This section covers how to compile and run the app.

Compile the app

Android Studio provides two ways to compile and test your app:

  2. Enable developer options on your device by clicking Settings > About device > Build Number (tap 7 times).
  3. Turn on USB debugging on your device by clicking Settings > Developer options > USB debugging.
  4. In Android studio , with your project open, click Run > Run 'app' (or Shift + F10).
  5. Choose the device you want to load and test on under Connected Devices.

  2. In the pop-up prompt, tap Activate.
  3. Tap ACTIVATE LICENSE. to verify your Knox license.

  6. To exit from Kiosk Mode, tap the shortcut on the home screen and tap LEAVE DEFAULT KIOSK MODE.
  7. To enter into custom Kiosk Mode, tap ENTER CUSTOM KIOSK MODE. Now check the settings with you want to apply in Kiosk Mode.
