    AppsInstaller F.A.Q

    - What is AppsInstaller and what does it do ?

    It is a small program to let you install apps from SD Card. You no longer have to surf the net from G1 to install an app. Just download the app you want on your computer, transfer to your SD Card and start AppsInstaller. If the app is compatible with G1, it will install.




    __________________________________________________ _______________

    - Can it uninstall apps too ?

    We'll pass that question on to the Google Android team which decides what an app can and cannot do and as of now we can't do this.

    __________________________________________________ ________

    - When I select an app, nothing happens, wtf?

    Android SDK has been around for a year with several versions. Developers have created many versions of their apps for different SDK not all of which work on G1. If nothing happens when you select an app, its not meant for G1.

    Simply put, if an app is build to work on G1, it will install with AppsInstaller.


    PS: Opera Mini is one such app which won't work(as of now).

    __________________________________________________ ______________


    - So what do I do with this dead app I just downloaded ?

    Search, find, look for a new version of that app, you'll most probably find one. If not, contact the developer, and if still find nothing ? bad luck, move on to some other app.



    Any other doubts, issues ? post it here.

    yes?

    Answering yes to an "or"-question is always a little unprecise, don't get me wrong. Do you mean the first or the last?

    the last part. 3rd party apps are not given the permission to uninstall other apps for security reasons. So you have to use the built-in procedure.
