 The easiest way to accomplish this is to host the APK on a website and
make it downloadable from there.
This is how I do mine. I host mine on my website and make them
linkable from an HTML file.

 Shouldn't it be possible to download the .apk file to the SD card and
then open the file in the browser with a URL like file:///sdcard/app.apk
?

 Hi.

I've tried doing that but when the file download starts it just says
"Unknown" and then it fails.  Weird. I have downloaded an apk from
zxing and it worked ok.  Is there some special way I have to put it
up?  Is it a problem that's the debug version?

Thanks,
Will

 Easan,

There is a tutorial at:
 http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-File-Downloadable-from-Your-Website 

One thing to watch out for: make sure you are connected to a wireless
access point or 3G if you see anything weird while installing (like a
message that the Android System will be replaced).

 Also, if you use connect your phone to your PC and use it in place of
your emulator, the application will automatically get installed on the
phone.

In order for the browser to recognize the .apk as an application, the
web-server must set the MIME type to "application/vnd.android.package-
archive" which may be a bit tricky if you don't control the server.
You also have to make sure that the setting "Unknown sources" is
checked in Application settings.

Another way of getting a .apk installed on your G1 if you have the SDK
installed and set up on your PC is to run "adb install
<filename>" (adb is in the tools directory of the SDK distribution).

 Oh cool.  I do have control over the server so I will try to make that
setting.  Sounds like an apache setting.  I've been able to copy the
app using the usb cable, but I am developing with another person
remotely and want them to be able to download it.

Thanks,
Will

1. App not visible in Android Market of Samsung Galaxy

The application is Wonderstocks and it is free but copy-protected. I have
just noticed by the way that no paid applications are visible... I also must
add that there is no sim card for the time being in the phone, so:
- is the sim card necessary in order for the copy protected/paid apps to be
visible in the android market?

- is it that samsung/Bouygues Tel have excluded copy protected/paid apps
from the android market?

2. How to implement this simple animation ?

Hi,

I would like to implement a simple animation using View

The animation involves drawing  a rectangle (w =20px, h =10px)  moving
from left to right at a 10px increment.

I have two questions:

(1) As the rect moves along, the previous drawing needs to be erased
     so the rect appears moving along.

     My implementation erases by painting the previous rect with
     background color.  This works but doubles the drawing.

     Is there a more efficient way of erasing previous rect ?

(2) A time delay is also required between two drawings to show
successive
      movement. Without the delay, only the final rect  will appear
drawn.

      My view class implements Runnable & has a Handler.
      The run method updates the Rect location & invalidates.
      I have a draw method that puts in the delay, like so:

      public void draw() {
        for(int i =0; i<20; i++) {
            handler.postDelayed(this, i*1000);  //1 sec per drawing
        }
    }

(1) & (2) cause the rect to go from left to right in 10px increment on
1-sec interval.

As the animation is simple, I would like to use View (not SurfaceView
or Animation) and it's OK to do all the work in UI thread.

Is there a more efficient way than the one described above to
implement this simple animation ?

Suggestions & comments are appreciated.

Thanks.
