Unfortunately I believe the Canonical store doesn't work any more? So you will have to "side load" the app.

You can find version 2.5.1019 from the following locations:

Either download directly on the device, or use a PC to download and then push to .click file with adb, eg `adb push /tmp/`

- From a terminal from the device run the following command (note you'll have to find where the .click was downloaded to)
pkcon install-local --allow-untrusted /tmp/
- Or from a PC use adb again to use the one you copied to /tmp
adb shell pkcon install-local --allow-untrusted /tmp/

You may then need to refresh the app scope by doing a "pull to refresh", or just restart your device.

tl;dr; on a PC with adb setup and the device connected it should be
adb push /tmp/
adb shell pkcon install-local --allow-untrusted /tmp/

Please let me know if you have any issues.

Thant you for your reply.
I successfully download the .click file but there is a bug with adb :
 adb: error: connect failed: no devices/emulators found
Thank you for your help!

For adb to work, you need to have you device in the following state
- developer mode needs to be enabled
- device needs to be unlocked
- device needs to be attached

If you are having trouble probably best to talk with ubports.

Otherwise you can do it directly on the device with the terminal-app, as also described above.
