    So I've downloaded a couple of games from OmniGSoft. I have played them on my Windows Mobile phone and love them. They are sitting on my SD card becasue I cannot figure out how to open them or run them. HELP!!

    How do I run or install apps loaded on my SD card. the program AppInstaller wont work. I need another way. FYI - I am NO programmer. Thanks!

    sounds like you are trying to play games made for windows mobile on a G1.. if so, don't think that is gonna work. it's like playing a made for windows game on a mac.

    No OmniGSoft also has games for Android. if you download them to your SD card the phone won't launch them. I had the same problem.

    I'm having the same problem, and I'm not entirely sure how to move the app onto the internal memory?

    thers an application called apps installer in the market place under 'tools' that installs applications from your sd card. theres also a way of getting to them using the browser - not sure how though. give that a go. i juat used it for a beta version of shapewriter and it worked fine!

    It will install applications from your SD card, INTO your internal memory.
