How to install Lotus Notes for Android

IBM produces a special version of Lotus Notes for mobile phones. This version, called Lotus Notes Traveller, is compatible with the Android operating system for smart phones. The software for the productivity suite does not get installed on your Android phone. Instead, you download a client that enables you to access the programs remotely. The implementation of Lotus Notes Traveller is more usual in corporate networks. The Lotus Notes Traveller installation instruction assumes that the system administrator of the company has set up a Notes Web page for the implementation.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open a Web browser on the phone. Navigate to the Notes site page set up by the system administrator.

  2. 2

    Click on “Select an IBM Lotus Mobile Installer.” Choose “Android” on the next page. You will see the message “Starting download.”

  3. 3

    Look in your Notifications. Click on the downloaded file. You will be asked whether you want to install the application. Press the “Install” button.

  4. 4

    Press the “Open” button once the Lotus Installer finishes installing itself. You will be shown the licence agreement. Click on the “Agree” button to continue. Press “Next” in the installer’s welcome screen.

  5. 5

    Enter the server address, your user ID and your password in the next screen. Click on the “Next” button. The installer will connect to the server to look for updates or applications that are ready to install. Lotus Notes Traveller will be one of these.

  6. 6

    Click the “Yes” button when you are asked whether you want to install Lotus Notes Traveller. When the installation completes, click the “Open” button.

  7. 7

    Configure the Lotus Notes Traveller installation in the next screens. Activate the device administrator by pressing the “Activate” button. Select the “Next” button in the next screen to register the Traveller client.

  8. 8

    Tick the check boxes of the Lotus Notes features you would like to sync. You should also nominate where data will be stored for your installation -- either on the phone’s internal memory or on a removable memory card. Press the “Finish” button to complete the configuration. Press the “OK” button in the completion message.
