I am having trouble installing ConnectBot on my Google Nexus 7 tablet running Android 4.4.2. When I install from the Play Store, it downloads quickly, then stalls with a message "Installing". The program never installs, I never see the icon. However, when I return to the Play Store, it recognizes that ConnectBot is installed, and pressing the Open button causes ConnectBot to open, where it seems to work properly, and I am able to connect to my Raspberry Pi.

How can I get ConnectBot installed so I can run it from an icon?

By the way, I also tried JuiceSSH. The same thing happens. I am able to download and run the program, but it never installs. So the problem is somewhere on the Nexus 7.

Check your launcher's "drawer" or whatever it's called, it's complete
set of installed apps. Perhaps the install couldn't make a shortcut on
the launcher screen and you may have to do it yourself.

Exactly how depends on your launcher.

I looked. It's not there. And the fact that it never shows the "installation complete" message suggests that it's not just a case of a missing shortcut.

The version of ConnectBot from the Play Store is ancient. I haven't had
any trouble running snapshot builds from the ConnectBot GitHub page:

https://github.com/connectbot/connectbot/releases

I'm currently running:

https://github.com/connectbot/connectbot/releases/tag/git-master-2014-03-02_12-38-08

I hope this helps!

Thanks for the suggestion. How do I install a snapshot build on my Nexus 7?

Download the APK file on the device and then go to downloads and tap the
APK, it might bring up a dialog asking you to go to settings to enable
installing from outside the market.
