Surprised How to use App not from Google Play/Android Market

Hello, I am trying to download a beta app from my university as i am one of the priviledged few who have this opportunity. I downloaded the app from an internet website but my phone will not let me open the app because it was not downloaded from Google Play/Android Market. Please Help!

Hi there, welcome to the forums

You might need to enable 'Unknown Sources' in your settings in order to install non market apps. If you go to settings > applications there should be an option to tick 'Unknown Sources' and hopefully that should then let you install the app you need.

Let us know how you get on

Go into settings | security and make sure the checkmark next to unknown sources is clicked. Then you should be all set.
