Dinc 2 sideloading


I'm new to android and will be receiving my dinc 2 tomorrow. I have been reading about installing apps that may not be in the android market or that have been hidden by the carrier. I've noticed several threads that talk about sideloading using the Sideload Wonder Machine. Has anyone attempted to use this method on the dinc 2 or is there an easier way to accomplish this. Also, this appears to work with devices that have not been rooted.
All you need is the .apk file on your SD card for the app you want to install. Use a file explorer to find the .apk and run it ... the app will install.
