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.

Widget Works 1.1 (Android)

Widget Works 1.1 (Android) apk

Overview: Widget Works! All in one widgets for your personalized android home screen.

Requirements: Android 2.1 and up

Market Update Released: July 27, 2012

Price: $0.99

612663ac4b Widget Works 1.1 (Android) 0c261f2b39 Widget Works 1.1 (Android)

Widget Works! A suite of all in one home screen widgets designed to personalize and accentuate your home screen. With hundreds of clock as well as weather combinations and customization options, Widget Works provides you with the ability to configure widgets with your own personal tastes. Future updates will soon include home screen shortcuts as well as news feeds.

This application is designed to function on almost all phone models and android versions with 2.2+ (Froyo to Jelly Bean). Most widgets are fairly light weight in resource use terms and due to being able to configure one widget to contain multiple locations, multiple widgets will likely not be necessary. Please test the app as much as possible within the return period to insure that the app functions as it should on your phone.

Setup and Configuration:

Upon selecting and placing a widget on the home screen, the app attempts to use gps location services to ascertain the users location. This is so the first widget page can be set up to be the users location (if location check is unsuccessful, the app may lag for a few seconds before configuration begins, please ignore this if that is the case).

Proceed to enabling those widgets you want to have visible (for now select clock and weather as those are the only ones available). Then select any extra options you may wish to have and proceed to setting up the widget pages. Page 1 is set up automatically if possible. Please verify your location and timezone and type in a description for this widget. Note: you may type in your region/city in the timezone area, but please mind the format for entering the information and select your timezone from the drop down box located under the editable space in order to ensure proper clock timing (Putting anything in the editable timezone box will shorten the list in the drop down box, please select closest major timezone location to yours).

After setting up the pages you want to be able to cycle through (make sure those pages have their enable page checkbox checked), click customize widget and select your widget styles.

After widget is set up, please press the finish button and your widget is ready for use. Note, that the visibility button (which itself is invisible) is located on top of the weather icon (or where the weather icon would be if weather was enabled). To properly press the left and right arrows for the description and date, aim within the arrow bounds but more towards the clock. Also, the current date is the one that has current weather and extra data on weather available. The weather is from google weather and is updated every hour. For those wishing for more frequent updates, you may click on the configure icon and then click finish once configuration is launched since that updates the weather to the current time (this is to make sure the phone doesn’t lose too much battery life due to constant updates).

Please note that all permissions required on installation are necessary for the apps functions and that no personal information is taken off the phone.
