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.

Gmail Widgets v5.0 Apk App

Requirements: 2.3.3 and up

Overview: Gmail Widgets is the best collection of beautiful homescreen widgets in a variety of sizes that show the number of unread emails and message previews.

 Until Android 3.0, the Gmail app does not come with any widgets. This app fills that gap.

 The Gmail widget in 3.0 and later versions is unreliable and not customisable.

 Unlike some of the other Gmail widgets on Google Play, this app works with the latest version of the Gmail app and is compatible with 2.3 (Gingerbread) and later. It also includes some exclusive widgets for 3.0 (Honeycomb), 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and 4.1 (Jelly Bean).

 Review of an older version on TalkAndroid. http://www.talkandroid.com/100486-ge...o/#more-100486


 - Supports push email - updates automatically when new mail arrives (it may not update immediately while you read mails)

 - Previews - shows the first lines of the message in addition to sender and subject (depending on size)

 - Supports different labels (e.g. Priority Inbox, Starred, and custom labels) from several accounts, even on the same widget (unified inbox)

 - Open Gmail or compose a new message quickly from the widget

 - Customisable appearance through themes and icons

 - Many different sizes to choose from, including scrollable, resizable stack and list widgets for newer Android versions

 Please note

 - When you perform actions on your new mail, these may not be reflected immediately, even if you refresh manually. The purpose of these widgets is to notify you of new messages as soon as they arrive.

 - It may take up to 30 seconds for the widget to refresh the first time and after a reboot. During this time it may not look like anything is happening!

 What's in this version:

 Sometimes it is necessary to remove and re-add the widgets after an update!

 5.0: Designed for ICS: improved configuration, redesigned widgets according to the guidelines (Holo theme), made widgets more flexible, many small improvements

 4.2: Added option to show missed calls, updated stack widget, bugfixes

 4.1: Added contact icons to some widgets, ability to filter unified inboxes by label, bugfixes

 4.0: Option to show SMS and emails on the same widget, Polish and Chinese (Taiwan) translations
