I am in desperate need of assistance. Not being tech savvy, and sometimes being lost on the lingo, I need clear, step by step if someone can assist.
I am trying to download an axp file (app) from a web site that will not come up on the phone when I google it.
So, I downloaded the app to my computer and cannot for the life of me get it to the phone. Droid Incredible 1, version 2.3.4.
I connected via the usb, a few of the phone's files came up in a removeable disk. Of those I could actually find on the phone, I cut and pasted the app to each one at a time and it did not show up in any of those files, two being download files (only found one on the phone).
I also downloaded my email provider to the phone, accessed an email with an attachment of the app, and when I attempted to download it to the phone, a message popped up stating that the app could not be opened on the phone, did I want to download anyway. I did and could not find it on the phone anywhere.
I did look in the notifications to see if it was successful, but was so flustered I'm not sure now if it was the email provider or the app that showed as having been downloaded.
I thought if I could open the app on the computer maybe that would make it easier or doable somehow, but 'Windows cannot open this file." Running Vista Home Premium.
Oh, I believe apx is zipped (?), for that reason I also downloaded Astro File manager. Not sure how to use it, but something I read suggested it would open apx files. Any tips on that would be greatly appreaciated as well.
Thanks so much!
