    What is a good app to install *.apk from the SD card?

    I have Astro but I don't want to install it from the market, and I can't install it from my SD card w/o Astro or something else? What else is good?

    You have Astro... but you don't want to install it from the market? I'm not following. Why not?

    Any file manager should work fine. The app isn't actually what's installing the apk. That's just a convenient way to execute the file. Android's package installer actually does the installing.

    I like AppsInstaller too . . . but I'm with Hegemony. Your question isn't making any sense. :thinking:

    The back up I have of Astro is pre beta release. People keep saying the Astro is going to expire on the 31st so I never updated it. If I download it from the market then I'll have the new one. So I wanted something that I could install the old version that's saved on my card.
