    Hi all,

    Does anyone know who to browse the folders of the SD card from the phone itself?

    I've downloaded an application on my pc in .apk format, moved it over to the SD card and now I'm trying to install the application from the SD card but am unable to search for it on the phone.

    Any ideas?

    Silly question but how do I delete an application that I didn't install via the android market?
    I installed Locale earlier today but it's buggy and causing various issues so I'd like to uninstall it.

    At present I've disabled it and deleted the locale install file from the sd card but the program is still appearing in my program list and I'd like to uninstall it properly.

    Sure. Press menu, go into Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications. Look for Locale, uninstall.
