|Card Game Walkthrough|
This page is about installing the mobile app for Girlfriend Kari onto your Android or iOS device. This page continues directly from the Methods page, so if you have not read that page yet, please go do so!
Before installing the mobile app, remember that you can play Girlfriend Kari on any device with Google Chrome without having to install anything! All you need to do is go to http://vcard.ameba.jp using Google Chrome! The browser version generally runs faster and can be used on more devices (including computers), so the browser version is generally recommended over the mobile app. The browser version also has no censoring of the cards unlike the mobile version. However, the mobile version does come with its own benefits (such as handy notifications for when your stamina has recharged), so it might be a wise idea to install both.

The process is pretty straight-forward for iOS. What you'll need to do is create a Japanese Apple account, and switch to that account momentarily to download the app and install it on your phone. Searching for "ガールフレンド(仮)" should take you straight to the app. If that doesn't work, try just searching for "ガールフレンド" and looking through the results to find Girlfriend Kari. You can find the link to the App Store for Girlfriend Kari here. No VPN is necessary.
If someone would like to explain the process of creating a Japanese Apple account below, please do so! I don't have any iOS devices, so I can't really explain this process. Erina (talk) 17:55, 7 January 2016 (EST)
There are two relatively simple methods to installing this game onto your device. The methods that we outline below don't require the use of a VPN.
The official link to the Play Store for Girlfriend Kari can be found here. However, the app is region-locked, so you'll have to install by different means if you're not in Japan.
You can install Girlfriend Kari through QooApp. This handy app allows you to easily download apk files (the installer file for your apps and games) from Japan, and it helps you keep them updated! You don't need a VPN for this method.
You can download and install QooApp by going to this site here using your Android device. Note that in order to install this app, you might need to enable "Allow installation of files from unknown sources." This is usually somewhere in your Android Settings or Privacy options.
After installing the app, you'll be greeted with a lot of Chinese news and other information that you don't care about. So, switch tabs at the top to the one with the circular QooApp logo to go to app downloads.
Now, search for "ガールフレンド(仮)", and you should be able to find the app! Install it, and you're good to go!
Whenever you need to update the app, just go back into QooApp, find the Girlfriend Kari page again, and press update! It's that simple.
Now, for you lazy people who don't want to install another app and would rather have a direct link to the game, we are hosting the apk for Girlfriend Note directly.
Visit the Mobile App Download page for more information. A link will be there to download the apk for Girlfriend Note. If this app is outdated, please contact someone such as Erina so we can get it fixed as soon as possible!
Now, wasn't that easy? Let's move on to the next page where you actually set up your account.
