If you just recently purchased Doodly, planning to buy it, or you’re about to install the software, this article is for you. In this blog, we are going to look at the download and installation process of our animation software, Doodly. In addition, we will also check out the Doodly member’s website. Let’s get started.

You can get Doodly from the website doodly.com and choose from either Standard or Enterprise packages.

As soon as you have completed the purchase process, you will receive a welcome email. This then confirms your purchase and you’re now ready to download Doodly.

1. Welcome Email

The welcome email contains the subject line, “Welcome to Doodly [Account information inside]”.

Now this email is very important because it includes your login details, download links, and other useful information. 

a. Login Details

On the welcome email, you will find your login credential which contains your username and password.

Your username is your email address and the temporary password is a combination of lowercase and uppercase letters. You can always change this into something you can easily remember once you’re already logged in to Doodly.

Tip: If you can’t find the email in your inbox, try checking your spam folder or do a search using the welcome email’s subject line.

b. Download link from the email

The download link provided in the email is what you need to download Doodly on your computer. 

For Windows:

Windows 64-bit: http://www.doodly.net/download/win64 (recommended)

Windows 32-bit: http://www.doodly.net/download/win32

For Mac:

OS X: http://www.doodly.net/download/osx

For Windows users, it is important that you download the correct link based on the version of your computer. If you’re not sure about your computer’s version,  you can go to this link and learn how to locate it.

2. Downloading Doodly

When you’re ready to download, just CLICK the download link provided on the welcome email or simply COPY AND PASTE the link in your browser and start downloading.

3. Installing Doodly

Windows users will have an executable file downloaded with filename Doodly Setup (version).exe while Mac users will have a disk image with filename Doodly-(version).dmg.

a. Double-click Doodly’s .exe or .dmg file

Once the download has been completed, double-click to launch Doodly. By default, it is automatically saved in your Downloads folder so in case the file disappeared after it finished downloading, you can just go to the Downloads folder and launch it from there.

WINDOWS:

MAC:

b. Agree on the License Agreement

Clicking the executable file or disk image will launch the end-user license agreement. Hit agree.

c. Launch the Doodly App

After you agree on the terms, a pop-up box will appear for mac users. Just drag the Doodly icon inside the Applications folder and locate the Doodly app then launch it.

For Windows users, Doodly automatically opens after you agree on the terms. There’s also a Desktop shortcut to the app so if you’re looking for it, just check for the Doodly icon on your desktop.

d. Login Using Your Login Details

As soon as you open the Doodly software, you will be prompted to enter your email and password. It is best to tick the remember my password option so you don’t have to enter your login details every now and then.

If you wish to change your password, you can do so by heading on to the User Details and change the password.

Now apart from the login credential and the download link, we can also find below links and details on the email:

  • Link to Doodly’s members area
