Let me start off by saying that I'm new here and I already love the site and I hope I recieve a warm welcome and I help a lot of people out with this method. Later on (either today or tomorrow), I will be posting a similar tutorial for Apple. Thanks ! NOTE: There are TWO tutorials on this thread (more ways to install applications will be edited in later). The first is how to install the application from your Android. The second is how to install it from your computer (with Dropbox) The next one (to be edited in soon) will be how to install the application without Dropbox. Also, note that these methods will work for ANY application, just search "appname".apk on your favorite search engine and treat it the same. IMPORTANT: Make sure before trying ANY of these tutorials you go to Settings > Applications > Unknown Sources and make sure the box is checked. Without this checked, you will not be able to download OR install any application.
