    Hey Everyone,

    I just joined this forum and I love it so far but i'm just wondering is there anyway we download applications for the G1 directly from this forum and then transfer it onto the phone or does all the downloading have to be done from the Android Market?

    Welcome to the forum :)

    To install applications that aren't from the market, you have to set it manually. Menu -> Settings -> Applications and make sure Unknown sources is checked.

    While you won't find many direct downloads on here (that I know of, at least,) there are applications all over the place at sites like http://slideme.org

    Oops, almost forgot. There's multiple applications in the android market (free) that will make installing downloaded programs a breeze.

    Like Devolio said you can down load from anywhere but if it is not from the market it must be copied and installed from the SD card
