    How do you transfer [Android] apps you've downloaded onto your computer onto your Samsung Galaxy S2?

    Thanks.

    you can either plug in the usb cable then transfer them across to a folder in your phone or you can do it wirelessly, i have swiftp app installed on my phone and use my ftp client on my laptop for moving stuff but i think you can also do this with kies air

    you can put them anywhere on the root directory of your internal sdcard. I created a folder in the past there called apk just for handiness.

    i created a new folder on my SD card called 'others' and i just put the .apk files in there so i know where to find them all easier with my file manager.
    if your new to smartphones you will perhaps need to know that the SGS2 treats the internal memory like an SD card so for the actual SD card you can remove, if you have one, is noted in the file manager as external sd card
    but that doesnt matter so much, just create a new folder and put them in so you'll know where to be looking.
    the usb cable will probably be the easiest way, your phone will pop up with something when you plug it in and you can select usb storage

    Many thanks. So the phone will "find" them and put them in the right place!!! Very clever

    not quite, you will have to put them in a folder (of your choice) then use file explorer to access that folder and run the .apk file you put in there to install your app

    What I do is put the .apk files I want to install in a folder in my Dropbox. Then open that folder in Dropbox app from the phone and tap on it. The file gets downloaded and then installed.
