Get applications for your Android device
One great thing about having an Android device is the ability to choose from hundreds of thousands of apps, and new ones are available all the time. You can get apps through several channels including the Android Market, Amazon appstore, or directly from the publisher.
To download and install items from your Android device:
Touch the Applications icon, then Market
Select the app you would like to add; you will see the item detail screen
Touch the Install or Buy button (Note: free apps show Install; those with a price show the Buy button)
If Install is selected, the item will start downloading immediately
If Buy is selected, you may be asked to sign in to your Google™ account; if so, sign in and select Buy Now, then follow the prompts
Once downloaded, the app's icon will appear in your app list
The market may also be accessed from a computer through the Market website (market.android.com). Applications purchased through the website are downloaded directly to the Android device.
The Amazon appstore is a second option for purchasing and downloading applications. App purchases are billed through the user’s Amazon account. The appstore may be downloaded directly from the Amazon website (www.amazon.com).
Some applications bypass the markets and are offered directly from the publisher. Before these apps can be installed, the Android handset must be configured to allow the installation of non-market applications.
