    Hi all, I thought i would make this thread as i have read many people complaining that many apps (Such as lookout Antivirus) are not compatible for the HTC Wildfire. Now this is completely False

    Applications such as
    LOOKOUT ANTI VIRUS do work with the wildfire. Most apps may not be available via the Marketplace so you have to download an application called 'APPBRAIN' and 'FAST WEB INSTALLER' (Basically an add on to enable downloading apps via your HTC browser). By installing Appbrain you can download apps which are not available via the marketplace. To install both apps, simply search for them via the marketplace.

    Once you are done installing, You can go to Appbrain.com via your computer and log in with your Google mail account and install apps. When you click install, it will send the apps to your phone and will automatically download and install.

    The other alternative is to log into appbrain via your HTC wildfire browser and install apps directly to your phone. (DO NOT TRY AND INSTALL APPS VIA THE APPBRAIN APPLICATION ON YOUR HTC BECAUSE IT WILL SIMPLY NOT WORK) Its as simple as that.

    Before i purchased my phone i browsed through these forums and a lot of people were claiming apps would not work with the wildfire due to the low res screen, This did put me off a little but i went for it anyway

    I have downloaded Lookout Antivirus and it works flawlessly. I have downloaded other applications and they all work.

    So people...please do not post messages saying such and such apps do not work on the wildfire.. when they clearly do! It nearly put me off from purchasing this magnificent phone and i would imagine others too

    I disagree. I have AppBrain and the Fast Web Installer apps, but still have quite a few apps that come up 'not found'.
    Despite this - still very happy with my Wildfire.
  3. To mention another example, Google Earth isn't available for the Wildfire.

    Your right its not on market I have it on my Racer which has the same 240 x 320 however I wish I could get Vampire live on 240 x 340 :(

    How hard is it to make apps support 240 x 340????
