Can't download Zwift (IT restriction)

Hello

Made the leap to a smart trainer, just tried to download Zwift for the free trial and it's not allowed :evil: We've got a personal desktop but dont want to be moving that about every time I fancy a blast.

What other options are available?

Dave

EDIT: options for cycling indoors :)

    Why is it not allowed?
    Is it your device or your employers?
    If it's the latter then I doubt you'd be able to download any other indoor training software either.
    Options?
    Buy a Laptop
    Buy an iPad/Tablet
    Train indoors the old fashioned way.
    Ride outside.

    It's the works machine.
    Guess my question really was are there any training programmes that use a good old fashioned web page :)
    Outdoor cycling is still my preference, but can't see it happening much till the spring.

    Not available on android, should have an old iphone somewhere which I did consider but need to think how to get on to monitor. Screenshare an option in lounge but can't see that being well received ;)

    It is available on android, I'm running it, unless the beta is full....
  • david7mdavid7m Posts: 636
    Typical. Must be full as it says "Zwift works on Windows PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV. Grab your supported device and go to zwift.com/download or the App Store to install Zwift and start riding." :(

    if you did want to go for a pc then i managed to pick up a desktop on ebay that runs it perfectly for about £80.

    Thanks - will see if I can get this to work with an OTG cable and ANT+ dongle. Might get me back on Zwift while I am temporarily shunted to the shed for any turbo possibilities.

    Check Android supported devices though... a short list.

    It was not supported on my main phone, but is offering to install it onto my Jelly Pro android phone which I was surprised about. Not much of a screen, but can see whether it works!
