    can I download apps to my computer first?

    I prefer the luxury of surfing for apps on my laptop and if I find something I like, download it and then put it on my phone.

    can I download to my computer and then install on my S2?

    if so how?

    that is a two part how question. How to download to computer and then, how to upload to S2?

    thanks in advance for dealing with this newby question!!!!

    Yup you can.

    Download the app and move it to anywhere on the phone (using USB Mode). Then use the file manager to select the apk and then install.
    The only thing you do need to do is go Menu > Settings > Applications > Tick 'Unkown Sources'

    And there's an additional marketplace at http://slideme.org for android apps. That's a place from where you can download software for your phone either via their app or by downloading the apk's to your pc first.

    Also once registered with the market remember you can browse it on your PC, and when you click install your handset will receive a push notification to do the download/install.

    Works very nicely.

    download and then copy seems much more tedious ?
