    Moving apps to a different phone?

    What is the easiest way to make a copy of a couple apps and move them to a different phone? My wife just got a new phone and wanted a couple apps that I have that are not exactly available in the market and are hard to find.

    Can I just copy from my phone to computer via usb and than copy it to hers?

    Ya that should work just make sure that you can get them running from on the SD card. If not then I guess you can alway just move them to the phone so that should be all you need to do. Well that is what I think never done it but it should work.

    Use the AppMonster App to Backup your APK files
    Then transfer those to your better half's android device's SD Card
    Remember to "allow unknown sources" when attempting to install
    Should work, as long as they are free apps...

    I would like to know about paid apps myself...

    Suppose i changed phones but wanted to install my widget locker app on my new device... ???

    Anyone tried this?
    Would it work?

    Copying APKs may or may not work, depending on the app and how it manages its licensing (if at all). Paid apps which are sold through the Android Market are more likely to use licensing (but since Market licensing support for apps is still pretty new, most probably don't use it yet).

    For people who change from one phone to another, if you've bought an app through the Market, and your new phone was set up with the same gmail account, you can download the app through the market for free on the new phone.
