    Possible stupid question, but after downloading through SAM I try to install it and it just says "Install failed or already installed." What am I doing wrong?

    There is a special work-around procedure required for installing non Market apps.

    Search for it here on the forum. You should be able to find it pretty easily.

    It takes a few steps to do and it's kind of a pain in the butt. So it's one of the reasons why everyone's anxious for the phone to be rooted so non Market apps can be installed more easily.

    Are you referring to the command prompt method? Do I need to do that with apps downloaded through SAM too? I tried searching but didn't find anything else.

    Yes, that's it. The one where you need to download and use the SDK on your PC, and have the phone connected to the PC, etc., etc.

    The apps at SAM are non Market apps.

    Sorry, I should have been clearer when I posted that. I was in a hurry and didn't do a good job explaining it.

    Thanks! So using the app is actually more work than just downloading it onto the computer.

    Yep. Downloading it is just the first step.

    After that, you still have to install it.

    Android phones have unix style operating systems. All of the applications' files have to be configured correctly and in the right place with the right permission settings, etc.

    This isn't your grandfathers' DOS, you know.

    If i tired to install the apps form the sd card but I can't install.
    It says the app comes from an unknown source and for your security only apps from trusted sources can be install.
