    reply: sometimes it may be due to the app u want to install is not compatible to u set model or may be compatible with windows phone so try the app to dowload with the help of your computer after installing the app on your desktop than transfering it to your android using modification keys which makes it compatible with your android

    Menu > settings > applications > unknown sources check box.

    That allows installation of non-Market apps, if that is what you mean.

    Go to settings > applications and enable the unknown sources . Now you can download third party apps from sources other than android market.

    Also you can download the apps in your PC and transfer them to your android device using USB cable.

    Before trying to install an app, first check whether it is compatible with your device or not.

    Check whether the app can work on the android version your devise has.

    Next, to install apps from the SD card, do the Following--->


    1. Go to Settings.

    2. Select Applications.

    3. Tick Mark on, install app from unknown sources.



    Before installing app from a Third Party source, Scan and check for any virus or malware present with the app.

    Use good anti-viruses to scan the apps.

    By default Google doesnot allow to install 3rd party apps..
    you have to get it via the Google Play Store @ ply.google.com

    to enable your device to be able to install the 3rd party app..
    you need to allow it from your device..
    to allow 3rd party app installation.. to as follows..
    Go to Settings >> Applications >> Unknown Source (make sure there is a check in front of it)..
    this should do it..

    There might be a chance that you have turned off the option to download the non-Market Apps.
    Check your settings by following the below.

    Settings -> Security-> Try to check the option 'Unknown Sources - Allow installation of non-Market apps'

    Now you would be able to download all the apps from the PlayStore.
