    Hi,
    I'm trying to download some pdf from links on a browser but Droid says incompatible file type or whatever and wont let me download. Is that due to some settings? How can I get it fixed so it will let me download pdfs and stuff from websites. Or do I have to root my phone.....

    Try downloading Documents to Go from the market. Also, it may help if you have Astro (file manager) so you can find saved files on your sd card.

    I'm seeing something on Google about an Android app called RepliGo that will read pdf files. Don't know if it works with Droid. it's in the Market.

    Download Crutch.... download this app... it doesn't 'do' anything you see... just allows your Droid browser to download any file type. Download Crutch v2008-01-31 Application for Android | Tools

    Droid's built in Quick Office will read pdf files. I downloaded a couple and never had to install any app to get them to display :)

    dang, I can't find it either on the market in a search. The developer's name is 'ouroborus.org'. See if you search by that and yield any results.

    I use apk file installer. its an app theres lots of versions of them. I forgot what mine is called but its got the android robot in the picture. you mount your droid and copy the apk file to the droid and then use the file installer to install it.

    OK, i have an .apk installer now but when I try to install crunch lite I'm getting a message saying it cannot be viewed from here.

    This is what I did. I downloaded to my computer from the link provided. I moved that file into my SD Card. I then ran my program which is eoe App Installer. It brough up all my files that are apk.

    For some reason Crunch lite is in there twice but it doesn't appear to be installed. I long pressed on it and the install dialogue comes up but then I get the cannot be viewed from here message.

    Anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

    There's an option in the phone settings to enable 3rd party app installation... is that enabled? I can't remember the exact path, but it's in there.

    Yes there is an option that prevents you from loading anything from the store. I unchecked it. Or I checked it.

    Your post had me run through my applications and I found out it is indeed installed. It must run in the background. Thanks for the post, problem solved.
