Installing Applications Through the Android Market

The Android Market is essentially Android’s answer to Apple’s iPhone App Store. As of September 2009, the Android Market already offered well over 10,000 applications, and this number has only continued to grow. In addition to the applications the Android Market offers, you can also use it to install other downloaded third party applications.

  1. Copy the APK file to your Android’s memory card and insert the card into your phone.
  2. Download and install the Apps Installer application from the Android Market
  3. Once installed, the Apps Installer will display the APK files on the memory card.
  4. Click and install your APK files.

Installing Applications With Android SDK

It is possible to install APK files without utilizing the Android Market, although the process is more difficult and complex. To avoid the Android Market, you need to use Android SDK.

  1. Download and install the Google Android SDK program and the Android USB drivers. The download links are as follows: http://code.google.com/android/intro/installing.html
  2. http://dl.google.com/android/android_usb_windows.zip
  3. You need to modify your Android’s settings to allow the installation of applications from other sources. Under “Settings,” select “Application Settings” and then enable “Unknown Sources.” Also under “Settings,” select “SD Card” and “Phone Storage,” and finally enable “Disable Use for USB Storage”
  4. This last step is easy. Open Command Prompt and type the following: adb install <1>/<2>.apk
  5. However, when you type the command, replace <1> with the path to your APK file and replace <2> with the name of the APK file.
  6. You’re done! Your application is now ready for your use and enjoyment.

Battery Widget+ 1.1.0 (Android)

Battery Widget+ 1.1.0 (Android) .apk

Overview: An elegant battery info widget, plus level indicator on status bar and alerts

Requirements: Android 2.1 and up

Market Update Released: July 21, 2012

Price: $1.29

6486750f19 Battery Widget+ 1.1.0 (Android)

Battery Widget+ is a donate version of Battery Widget. In addition to all features in the free version, Battery Widget+ supports StylePack, which provides extra styles for battery level indicator icons.

Battery Widget is an elegant 1×1 widget which shows you the battery level on your home screen, with some nice animation when charging. Tapping on it will show more battery information with a shortcut to view battery use.

In case you don’t have enough space in your home screen, a clear battery level indicator is available on status bar so that you can see it even when you are browsing the web or sending text messages. It can be configured to show in 3 different colors to reflect high/medium/low battery levels. You can also define your own alerts, so that Battery Widget will automatically notify you about battery status changes.

Battery Widget will not drain your battery, as it does only what it needs to do. When the device is idle, it is not listening to any battery information updates from the system if there are no active alerts. If there are active alerts, it just does minimal job to check if it needs to notify you and nothing more – it does not update any visible components when the handset is not in use. With this mechanism, Battery Widget consumes only little computation power and battery.

Available in multiple languages: English, Chinese (Traditional), Chinese (Simplified), Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Russian, Greek, Italian, Hungarian, Estonian, Turkish, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish and Dutch.

Please email me if you could help me with localizing Battery Widget.

Feature Overview

- Battery level indicator on status bar, showing in different colors in 3 configurable level ranges

- Alerts for various battery statuses

- Time information when device is plugged/unplugged

Important Notes

- Make sure that Battery Widget is excluded in any task killer programs; it might fail to work properly otherwise.

- Due to the limitation of the Android platform, homescreen widgets will NOT be available if Battery Widget is moved to SD card.

- Some devices indicate battery level every 10% due to their kernel design (known ones are: most Motorola devices including Droid and Atrix series, Samsung Moment series).

- In Android 4.0, the system may shrink and dim level indicator icons in status bar.

Method 1:
