    Due to Google not allowing paying apps in Norway. I had to download the app another way.

    Download from internet to PC->mail->android home mail->open.
    It sounded like a fantastic idea, the only thing is the phone says it cant read the application!!
    I don't understand since it is APPK.
    I payed for it already :(

  2. What you can do is download from the internet to your pc, then hook up your phone to your pc and use HTC Sync to copy the app. The program will transfer the app to your phone, and then you're phone will ask you to open the app with the app installer.

    The nearest pc at the moment is a Mac that for some reason doesn't "sync"...

    May try your suggestion tomorrow though :)

    All your options would be good og my pc wasnt a MAC...
    The astro tip doesnt help because it doesnt download from the mail.

    Try opening and installing the apk with tAttachApkInstaller from your email. Also make sure you have Unknown sources ticked in the application settings on the handset.
