I have signed up with an online software company that hosts an information panel where info is retrieved from mobile units via APK install. The idea is to rollout redistribution APK without enterfering with the mobile users, as they are not very technical and although have given permission are going to make it impossible to install ! I have got the APK attached, it is the information client that is loaded on the device where staff location, messages etc are collected and logged into our manual admin system. We have several devices all over country and need this distributed easily without intervention. When you load the apk on the device , it requires that you allow unknown sources, then that you make the application a device admin, then that you enter the unique key obtained and number being monitored. Our users are very bad with technical ! The application then runs in the background as a process and is visible to the user, icon etc all there. This application connects the phone to a server where logs are updated with all the activities of the staff member are sent to the web console.
We need the following changed in the APK.
- The APK rewritten to install with a key we will supply and phone number included as supplied.
- Automatically install app as a device admin and that this is hidden in device admin
- As a trusted Google source. so no errors with unknown source
- As a process that is hidden and is system (the target phones are not rooted), and impossible to uninstall or to detect with malware apps.. as our staff are sales and can cheat the system some of the smarter people.
That the icons and all traces are removed so that ppl dont panic, and cand delete and fiddle to get time off work etc... we need this all locked.
MOST Important, that it will remote install to target somehow. All staff have agreed to this, but the information we have is that many will now make the handsets unaavailable.. Perhaps we could try MMS auto retrieve ? Altho Im not sure if the targets will accept. Maybe Google services of some sort may resolve ?
Please come back ! I suspect to the right person, this is all not hard. Please suggest a price aswell if you are not happy with suggested.
