Region Locking[edit | edit source]
SINoALICE is currently region-locked. You must use Japanese store accounts to download and install the game.
On Android, it is possible to acquire the SINoALICE APK via third-party sites. See below.
On iPhone, you must have a Japanese iTunes account to access the Japanese iTunes store and find the app.
Android[edit | edit source]
Important: In order to install QooApp as well as SINoALICE via third-party sites, you must enable installation of apps from unknown sources under "Settings" -> "Security" -> "Unknown Sources".
This can be deactivated once you have successfully installed the app(s).
QooApp[edit | edit source]
You can download SINoALICE via the QooApp application (a third-party mobile app repository). Updates to the APK itself (if any) can also be downloaded from the QooApp application.
1. Go to the QooApp website: QooApp
2. Tap on the QooApp icon which links to the QooApp APK.
3. After the download completes, install/open QooApp.
4. You may get stuck here:
5. Just tap on the icon on the VERY upper-left and this will open a page with a lot of games listed:
6. SINoALICE can be found on the first tab, "Featured." If you can't find it there, just go to the second tab, "Games," and scroll down until you see it. You can also do a search under 'sinoalice' for it.
7. Download and update the game.

Your only way to install SINoAlice is to download directly from Apple App Store.
1. Creating a Japanese App Store Account. (If you already have one skip to step 2).
1.1 Log out of your existing account if you haven't already.
1.2 Find any free app (So you don't have to input your credit card later on), press install and press "Create Apple ID".
1.3 Scroll all the way down until you see 日本 (Japan) and select it.
1.4 Agree to Terms and Conditions.
1.5 Input your email adress (That isn't already used) in メール (mail). Your password into パスワード (password) and repeat the same password underneath. Password must be atleast 8 characters long and must contain a capitalized letter and a number.
1.6 Security Questions is below the password so just select anything and write anything in the answers. (If you do consider spending money on the game, save your questions with the answers.)
1.7 Underneath security questions is rescue mail though it is optional.
1.8 Input your birthday (年 = year, 月 = month and 日 = day).
1.9 Underneath just untick the 2 if you want to and click 次へ (next).
1.10 After you arrived to the next page, you should see credit cards. You want to select なし (none). If you do not see this option, find a free app and press install.
1.11 Skip the ITUNES CARD and now is the part it gets tricky. It doesn't matter what you write in the first 4 boxes. Just write something atleast. However the 5 underneath is the trickier part. You have to input an adress. Apple checks if city, prefecture and postal code are valid. Since (I assume) you don't live in Japan, we can use the adress of a business or hotel (However it does violate Apples Terms and Conditions).
郵便番号 = Postal Code. You can type in 100-0006.
都道府県 = Prefecture. Select 東京都 (Tokyo).
市区町村 = City. You can type in Chiyoda-ku.
住所 = Adress. Type anything you like, doesn't matter.
電話番号 = Phone number. It accepts 080 55555555.
1.12 In the email you used as Apple ID, click the link and login. You should be verified.
2. Installing SINoALICE.
You are now past the troublesome part and can finally install SINoALICE.
Go to the ランキンぐ (Ranking) tab and select 無料 (Free) at the top. You should find SINoALICE and click 入手 (Get).
If you do not find SINoALICE head to 検索 (Search) and simply type in SINoAlice and click 入手.
Or on your iDevice you can simply click this link. It will redirect you to the appstore app.
