    I'm sure I could find this if I searched for another two hours, I checked the similar posts and didn't find anything so I'm just going to ask.

    I've seen a lot of people talking about the emulators, so I downloaded them to my laptop since they are no longer on the market. I now have 4 .apk files on my desktop, problem is, I have no idea where to put them!

    I've only had my phone 2 days. The samsung mesmerize. Prior to this I've had a tracfone lol. Can anyone tell me where I need to drag these files or what folder I may need to create in order to actually install these apps on my phone?

    First, you got to make sure your phone is set up to allow 3rd party applications (non-market) to be installed, that should be under Settings > Applications.

    With that out of the way, just put them under any folder on your SD; from there, go to your file browser of choice, locate the folder and tap the file, it should prompt you to install whatever app the .apk holds.
