    I have some apps from a friend that I want to transfer from my computer to my google mytouch. How do I go about this? I know how to connect and mount my phone to my computer, but when it brings up the window for my SD card, there is no folder called "applications" or anything like that. Where do I drop the apps so that I can access them on my phone?

    if you havnt already, go to the market and download appsinstaller (your phone needs this app to install the apps from the sd card).....once phone is mounted, move the apps into the sd card directory, no folder is needed....once moved unmount phone and open appsinstaller, it will automatically search sd card for your apps and it will install them too....hope this helps

    Astro will install apps, as well as being a pretty darn good file browser. With Astro, once you have the *.apk on your sdcard, just navigate to it, click on it, and select Apps Manager.
