I know how to download apps from the market, but i was wondering is there other places you can get them from?

Would be nice to look at them on your pc before you download etc

cheers

www.4shared.com
If you download direct to your phone, you will need astro file manager from the market to install the apps.

Hi.

I'm new to this phone and used other sites but kept winding up with .apk files which my phone wouldn't recognise or install.

A friend steered me this way (and probably a similar method to the above post*);

Download LINDA MANAGER from Marketplace
ATtach phone to PC and create a new Folder on the SD card - call it what you like (mine's AA_Downloads so it's at the top)
Download apps to your PC and drag/drop them into your new folder
Use the phone, run LINDA MANAGER and then INSTALL the new file you downloaded

Worked like a charm.

You will be directed into your settings when you first do this  as it didn't like [trust] anything not from MARKETPLACE.  Just uncheck the relevant box when prompted.

*Sxi-boy.... I'm hearing that Astro manager may be better than Linda?  Have you used both?

I haven't used Linda. Just Astro manager. As soon as an app has been downloaded and I click on it, the astro manager just pops up and wants to install it. very simple.
Where do you download your apps from as I am starting to find 4shared.com a little limited on the apps I am wanting.

I've always used mobile9.com for all my phones I've had.

Here's the HTC Desire link. 

http://phone.mobile9.com/i/htc+desire/

Just go under SOFTWARE.  I can't vouch for it all being reliable mind but I've never had a problem.

I tried Astro today too and it gives me the option to rename files where Linda doesn't.
