Why aren’t Android apps installed via PC showing on my phone?

I was trying to download apps through my PC at the Android market.
I followed the instructions here: //www.makeuseof.com/answers/transfer-android-app-pc-phone-wifi/

Nothing happens.

For example, i’m trying to download Touch. It says on the site that app is already “installed” but it isn’t in my phone.

    The Market keeps track of the purchases you have made through it.. When an upgrade is requested, the Market validates that the original was purchased. It can't upgrade something it doesn't know you have. 

    did you enabled unknown sources in application settings

    also perhaps the application is not compatible with your android?

      It's not an upgrade.

        Go into the phone settings and to Manage apps see if it is there ???

        if you click on clear data and reboot, does this help?

        also try another launcher, like go launcher ex

        also maybe the icon name is different than the application

        here is another way to install app
