    If you're speaking of apkInstaller I don't think it allows you to install the application to the SD card, description "Install android application or games from you sdcard"

    That's correct. It's only for putting apk files on the sd card and then hitting install. It won't install anything to the SD card.

    The apk installer will only allow you to install signed .apk files from the sd card.

    Thanks for bumping a thread from 2008. You don't need an app to install anything from the SD card. Any file manager will do it.
