Here is a step by step tutorial on how to install Apps/Games on your Android Device:

Remember that .APK file is similiar to your setup file or .EXE in windows, it goes on your Android Device and then your Device installs the game/app after you run the APK.

Use the links provided on this website to download your App/Game:

1. Download the APK. (Extract the APK to any folder if the format is RAR or ZIP)
2.Transfer the game/application to a folder in the the  SD Card by connecting your Android Device to your computer via USB datacable. Remember the folder you copied the APK to.
3. Go to the Android Market search for Astro File Manager(free), ES File Manager(free), Root Explorer or any other similiar file explorer.
4. I will suggest Astro File Manager or ES File Manager (as they are free).
5. Once installed open your file manager.
6. Now open the folder you copied the APK file to.
7. Now tap on the APK file to install it(the APK might need some permissions to install). If you get a pop-up telling you its blocked, go to your Device settings and check Install Applications from “Unknown Sources”.
8. Your Game or App should now be installed and waiting for you start up and start playing.
