How do I install an Android APK for which I have the URL?

Android normally doesn’t allow you to install non-market apps. So you have to change your default settings to all the installation of install unsigned / non-market apps. You can do this quite easily though:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Select Applications.
  3. Check the “Unknown sources” setting to allow the installation of non-market apps.

That’s it! Now simply navigate to the APK link via the browser on your Android device and you should be able to download and install the app.
