    Milestone - Installing Apps (apk) problem

    My cousin recently got the Motorola Milestone, and since then i've tried everything to install apps, but couldnt.
    The problem is that the phone came without a "Market", since there is no market i cant download and install "Astro" or any other file managing app. And without Astro, i cant run or install *.apk files.

    So, is there a solution?!
    I would really like to stay on my official OS, i dont want to install any MODs.

    P.S. Milestone runs on Android 2.1, that still doesnt support running apps from SD card.

    If you want to stick with the official OS, you'll need to use an alternative Android market like AppBrain, AndAppStore or SlideMe to download apps.

    For a list of more markets, look here WIPConnector.com - We help mobile developers find tools, partners and resources.

    [EDIT]
    AppBrain has a Market-type app too that works like the official Market app for managing apps, installing, uninstalling, etc

    You don't need Astro, or any other file manager, to install apps on Android.

    I suggest you have a look at these two links on AppBrain. They will go a long way to solving your problem.
