Connect App to Computer
WARSURGE can be connected to PC and Mac. We will list known methods and instructions below.
Note that this is not a dedicated computer version of WARSURGE, but some of these methods do not require you to have a smartphone.
Requires: PC + Android Device
You can connect the WARSURGE App to your PC by downloading the app called 'Your Phone' onto your PC, and 'Your Phone Companion' on an Android device. It is a free, official product. Following the instructions and prompts between the phone and PC should be sufficient to get you started.
Note that 'Your Phone' may come already installed on Windows, but can be acquired for free. Likewise, 'Your Phone Companion' may be already on your Android device, but can be acquired from Google Play Store.
You will need a Microsoft Account on your PC to fully connect your device, but if you have an Outlook or Hotmail address, then you should be good to go.
On your Android device, bring down the list of utilities by swiping the top of the screen down, and expand them so you have the full screen. If you have 'Link to Windows' listed as an option, you should be able to use WARSURGE on your PC, along with many other phone apps.
If it is not present on this screen, you may possess an older device that may not support this feature. 'Your Companion App' will still be usable, but with limited features (and may not support the use of apps from your computer).
When your device and PC are connected, you should be able to browse apps, and WARSURGE will be among them if it is installed on your smartphone. If you cannot browse your apps, then your phone does not support this feature.
NOTE: As this is a connection from your smartphone to your PC, any profiles you save or edit will be applied directly to your phone.
Windows 11 is said to support Android apps. Details to follow.
Requires: Mac with Apple Silicon
Newer Macs with Apple Silicon (such as those with an M1 processor) are able to download and use apps associated with iPhones and iPads.
Sign in with your Apple Account on your Mac, then search the App Store for WARSURGE. Make sure you have iPhone and iPad apps included in your search.
Note that this does not require an iPhone, and will create a separate install to an iPhone. If you want to transfer data, you'll need to use QR Codes, or features that are being developed by the WARSURGE Team to transfer data without QR Codes. Updates to this will follow.
