    How do you uninstall an APK that was previously installed?
    settings/manage apps - choose unistall.

    I see. The correct name is AppsInstaller that you can download from The Market.

    An easier way to install it is email it to yourself, access your email on your phone, then download it and install.

    Thanks.
    I use App Installer:

    +1 on this. Drop the file on your card and open app installer. It will find the file for you automatically.

    Dylanthecat made a very good point, make sure you go to settings > applications > and enable "unknown sources" to allow install of non-market applications.
    On my Backflip with 2.1 I dont have an "enable "unknown sources"" option at the designated location. Where is the option located?

    Im missing a driver for "motorola adb interface" so when I enable usb debugging, which is required for using sideloader, I dont find all of my phones hardware. This causes the sideloader to not find my phone. I cant find the driver for the backflip...any suggestions?
