There are sites that offer both paid & free apps but require software to use the service such as sideme where devs sell or give away their work rather than use the Android Market (think of App World & MobiHand). What he chooses to do is not for me to decide and since no links to said site are posted publicly, BBOS should be in the clear.

    But I understand your point.

    Actually, if instructions are publicly posted on a forum on how to install illegally obtained software, the site CAN be held partially responsible.

    That having been said, there are many circumstances where one would need to install an .APK file legitimitely obtained, so I will describe the process here:

    1- copy .APK file to SD card
    2- go to Settings-->Applications and make sure "Unknown Sources" is checked
    3- using a file manager such as Astro, navigate to the SD card and pick the .APK file. It will install.
