    i have samsung galaxy tab 10.1 first generation. I have bought some paid applications and already been installed.
    Now, i have a plan to buy Galaxy note 10.1.
    The question is, can i transfer those paid application to my new gadget without having to purchase?
    Could somebody share your knowledge?

    • susendeep dutta

      Yes,you can get those paid apps to your new device if and only if you download those apps from the Google account you used to purchased it i.e. account on your tab 10.1

    I have signed in my gmail account to download android apps from android market place to both my android tablet, and phone. I have now given away my phone, but any time I try to download an app to my tablet it say the app is sent to my android instead of sending it to my tablet. How can I stop these apps from going into my phone (sony Erricson)?

    • susendeep dutta

      While tapping or clicking on install,it has drop down menu to choose on which device the app should be installed.So,every time you need to install an app,you need to repeat this step.Ask the person to whom you had given the android device to perform a factory reset and set up a new account in it.

    Dear , when u install the apps in and then at your phone side u just have to do setting of Sync background data. And then all apps you have recently installed in google play it will automatically install in your Android phone . Note:- All apps will depend upon the Mobile handset compatibility.

      I think that you had saw that apps will be installed shortly but didn't get installed in your phone.For those apps need to be installed,you need to have active data plan enabled in your phone.

      If you want to transfer your favourite apps from PC via USB cable then you'll need to get those apps from third party sites as well as enable installation of it in your phone(can be done by going to Settings --> Applications -->Allow installation of third party apps).Also,make sure that your phone has file manager app preinstalled so that you can locate them and need to install them on your phone by tapping on them.


      Hello, it is also possible to move/copy applications to memory card if you get the apps in .apk format. Of course your computer would need to have a memory card reader. All you would do, would to copy/move .apk file to memory card and once that is done, insert memory card in phone and install from there.

      use a file manager and search for the application name or by file extension .apk.

    • Susendeep Dutta

      Install a file manager app from PC using Android injector software and then you could be able to see apks present in your SD card.
