    ...and then install them to my android? My desktop/laptop internet speed is much faster than my droid is..plus if I have my apps on my pc and something happens to the phone, I can get things up and running again really quickly. But NO, all of the sites I have visited require that my droid download the file and then install it from there.... I know this sounds like venting - part of it is. But my legit question is, is there some secret way to download app to my pc and then install them to my phone? Is there an app I can install on my pc that will let me do this? This is sooooo time consuming. In the "olden days" with the "really slow and inefficient" windows mobile, I could do a full reinstall on my pda in about 10 minutes, including restoring the data files. With this droid system I am afraid that it might take the better part of a morning...is this progress???
