Welcome to another one of our Beginner’s Guide about how to do something useful with your Android phone. We have written a Beginner’s Guide for Rooting, that you may want to check out. Today’s topic is downloading apps from the Android Market, both from your device and using the web interface that is available on your laptop or desktop computer.
One thing that most other App Store’s do not have is the ability to download apps on your computer and have them download automatically on to your Android Device.
It’s really just that simple. Downloading from the Amazon App Store is a bit more tricky, but we will have that tutorial available a bit later for you. Have any questions? Feel free to leave them in the comments.

what about paid apps…
The number of articles on this website is becoming ridiculous. Really, a tutorial on the app store? I try to follow by RSS but I’m about done because sifting through the crap to get to a decent article isn’t worth the time.
I don’t mean to be rude but this article is catered more to those who have just started using a smartphone, most particularly an Android. Not for those of us who have been using an Android for a long time.
I tried to download several apps from the android market using my computer following the instructions above. They did not download. I got the screen that said they would download in a moment, but they never did. Can you give me any ideas of how to fix the problem I have a Droid Bionic.
It works fine with my droid bionic, did your bionic have a data connection (4G, 3G, or wifi)?
Not very helpful for the newcomer – it doesn’t tell you how to get to Android market to open it up, so it falls over at the very first step.
