Re: How do I download apps to my phone?

Hello!

AppWorld is merely a portal, vending apps developed mainly by others. As such, it is not your exclusive procurement source -- there are others that you can try (e.g., Handango, Handmark, BPlay, GetJAR or Mobihand). Further, if you simply use your favorite internet search engine, you certainly can find other sources and apps.

Good luck!

If you decide to get back to AppWorld, JaredCo has a nice selection of apps and they're Canadian.  Of course, if you're not in Canada you might not care too much, but atleast they're not American.  :smileywink:

Re: How do I download apps to my phone?

Hi and welcome to the forums! :smileyhappy:

As sdgardne suggested, just do a web search for the apps you are looking for. 

http://www.espncricinfo.com/   may have a way for you to set up an account and send updates to your phone.  

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/mobile/  and you can try searching there for the same thing.  Or you can also book mark the sites in your browser.

 

Let us know how it goes.  Happy to have you here! :smileyvery-happy:

Cheers Irwin! What I did was get the mobile version of the sites I wanted, then save them to home or homepage , and then it installs them just like apps, brilliant. Best phone I've ever had, keys just a bit small, lol
