    from what I understand, you download the .apk file directly to the storage card that is inserted in the computer, remove the storage card from the computer, place it back into your phone and then you will be able to use a file explorer like Astrid(?) to navigate to the .apk file and install it from there.

    I believe you can find .apk files from Google. i.e. do a google search for the program that you want and include the .apk term into the search

    Also, I'm pretty new to this site but I believe that the people on http://forum.xda-developers.com/index.php usually put up .apk's all the time.

    Source(s): I don't have an Android phone yet, but I have been doing a lot of reading up on the HTC EVO so I feel that I'm pretty knowledgeable about the android OS at this point.
