    A dev friend of mine sent me a torrent of a Beta-version of an app he's working on. How do I get this downloaded app onto the phone? Do I just transfer it to the root SD card?

    Nevermind, it turns out the App is available in the Market. I don't know why he sent me the app on my computer... Must have been a misunderstanding.

    Thanks. This thread can be locked and/or deleted.

    For future reference you need to go into Setting -> Manager Applications and click on the checkbox to allow third-party apps. Then use a file manager like Astro or Linda to select and install the apk.
