    I have an LG vortex vs660. The android version is 2.2.2.
    I am finding it incredibly difficult to install apps from the
    Google play store.

    So I downloaded some apps, and managed to install
    the Astro file manager., from google play.

    I copied the apps to my Sd card, then inserted that into the
    phone.

    Ok, when I open the astro file manger, then tap on: sd card,
    it shows the apps are there on the card.

    Then when I tap on a particular app's icon, I get a message saying:

    "parse error. There is a problem with parsing the package. "
    It does this with all of them.

    What can I do now?

    I made sure, before downloading, that each of these app are
    compatible with android 2.2.2.

    How did you get the apps to the SD card anyway? Looks like the error you get when the data on the card is an incomplete installation. Because apps don't fully install to SD card. The execution file is still on the phone memory. If what you did was install on another phone and move to SD card, that won't work.

    I copied them. I have a usb to micro usb device that I plugged into a usb port on my computer.

    I know they are not installed. I want to know how to install them.

    I did not install the apps anywhere, I just copied the uninstalled apps.

    I want to be able to "sideload" them. yes, I've enabled "unknown sources."
