How To Download An APP ~


How To Download an APP ~

This question seems very basic and it is if you know the answer. However, I have been receiving several questions about this very topic.

APP’s are small applications for mobile cell phones. They can be a flashlight, compass or eBook. There are more than 100,000 iPhone APP’s and 20,000 Android APP’s available today. Finding the right APP is challenging. Downloading the APP is straight forward.

For the iPhone users there are two main ways in which to get an APP onto your smartphone. First, directly from you iPhone and second, from iTunes on your computer.

From Your iPhone:

Step #1: To access the App Store on your iPhone, you first need an iTunes account. You can sign up for one on your iPhone (Settings > Store) or on your computer. For those who already have an iTunes account, your iPhone will use that account when syncing your iPhone with your computer.

Step #2: From your iPhone tap on the blue App Store icon on the screen to launch the application. Browse the App Store for the APP you wish to download.

Most of the APPs for sale cost between .99 and $9.99. When you see an APP, that you are interested in, tap on it to see its info screen to read more about what it does and how much that particular application costs.

Step #3: Tap on the price tag or FREE price tag and then tap on ‘Buy Now.’ At this time you will be taken to your iTunes account. Enter the requested information and tap OK to continue.

Step #4: You APP will begin downloading and a status bar will appear to indicate the progress. When completed you can access your new app.

From iTunes on your computer:

Step #1: You will need to make sure your preferences are configured correctly in iTunes to be able to access the APP store. Once your preferences have been configured, you can download APPs and when you connect your iPhone to your computer, you can transfer them to your iPhone.

Downloading for the Android is basically the same process with the exception of iTunes. You will need to setup a Google Checkout Account with a Google email account BEFORE you can download and purchase a paid APP. To setup this account you will do the following:

Step #1: From your desktop computer go to http://www.google.com.

Step #2: Type in ‘Google Checkout Account’ in the search field. From here follow the prompts to create and open your account.

Step #3: This is not really a step but a suggestion. Once your APP has been purchased go to your Google account and verify that the APP just purchased is in your account. This will ensure that when you change your Android phones you can re-install your paid APP’s.
