How to Install Android Apps (apk) to the Droid

I just got a new Droid today and I'm curious as to how I would install an apk file to my phone. I downloaded an application from the internet that is in .apk format and I'm lost on what to do from there

Re: How to Install Android Apps (apk) to the Droid

Place the file on your Micro SD card. Then you will need a file explorer, I use Astro, explore to the location you put the file and tap on it. Open it with the app installer and it will install.
