Access Android Market from your PC




Google’a Android Market is now accessible from your PC or laptop which allows you to purchase or download apps straight to your smarpthone.

Just go to market.android.com and log in using your Google account then start searching for apps to download.


You will notice the apps will have a label of “Installed” which means you have previously downloaded and installed the app into your Android smartphone.

If not, you can click on “Install” and a pop-up box will ask you which device you want it downloaded. If you’ve registered your phone before, it will show up on the list and you can select the app to be downloaded there.

Within minutes, Android Market will automatically push the app to be downloaded into your phone. That easy (and cool) — way better than how you do it with Apple’s iTunes.

  1. Wow! Thanks for the share, Sir Abe!

    I’ll re-share this. :)

    Tried it last night.

    I installed some applications via the website which prompted my phone to download the apks. Looks good but there’s still some bugs to get ironed out (like viewing any page for app categories ended in a 404 request, etc).

    Also, poor appbrain :(

  3. csseyah says:

    sir paano po kung gusto mo lang i-download sa pc yung .apk file then ikaw na lang magtransfer halimbawa sa Apad tablet. Ayaw kase magconnect sa Android site yung mga chinese tablet. Any suggestion po dyan na pwede gawin? Thanks po

    We iPhone users have no idea how the Android market works. Perhaps a video comparison as a future article?

  5. Gerald says:

    Wow! This is pretty exciting! I found it odd that my download never started. And I found it more odd that according to the troubleshooting page, I should be logged on to Talk on my device. I guess this is probably how they trace that you’re connected? Also, since my download never started, I think it’s wrong to see that the “Install” changed to “Installed” when it never happened. Just little things I noticed but this move by Google is still great!

    Still no access to paid apps….

  7. Micks says:

    Can we buy apps yet?

  8. Nivla says:

    I tried moments ago.. and it works great with my HTC desire HD.. i downloaded 3 games for testing.

  9. Paul says:

    Likewise with iPimp.

    I guess it’s convenient not to install a desktop client and just use a web browser, but you only have to do that once. Functionality-wise how is it easier than iTunes?

    Will the real JP please stand up? lol

    another lowlife trolling :P

  12. Epstein says:

    Hey Abe, Any comments about the Galaxy Ace? Is it doing good in the Philippine market? It was released early here. I just want to know if it is selling like the Nokia C3-00. It is a midrange Android Froyo phone

  13. vince says:

    i just tried it and it works.

  14. QWERTBVCXZI says:

    free crack paid apps for android users.try it,this is where I download my paid apps.

  15. irv says:

    What about paid apps? Can we now buy apps in this country from the Webstore then have it downloaded to Android phones?

  16. Pusang Kulog says:

    FU… U! Yuga

    Android sucks, its cheap and use only by poor people and fragmentation. Love my iPhone all the way, jailbreak and stuff. The best!

  17. dfgdfytt says:

    @pusang Kulog— so what? FU…u!!!! Wala kang pakialam sa gusto ng mga tao..bobang pusa…

  18. Totem says:

    God.. Trolls everywhere..
    @Epstein, woah.. Galaxy Ace is released here already? How much are they being sold for?

  19. Pusang Kulog says:

    @Totem

    Your the one trolling. Android just copy the code from Oracle. At least Apple does not do that.

    And apps… hmmm… Nokia has better apps

  20. lolipown says:

    @PK
    Butthurt much? The post doesn’t even have anything to do with apple, ios or anything fruity.

    Oh and your anti-Google sentiments. They seem to be outdated :)

    @irv
    paid apps are still filtered

  21. schizo says:

    @Baboy na Kulog

    Tangina mo, hahaha. Utak ipis ka pala e..

  22. lolipown says:

    @Pusang Kulog
    oops, that supposed “expose” has long been debunked.

    More oops. Florian Mueller, the guy who behind the “expose” is neither a developer or a lawyer or someone smart enough to differentiate between code for testing and shipped code.

    Protip: if you’re gonna call someone stupid, make sure your arguments are still valid ok?

  23. lolipown says:

    @schizo
    Sabi nga diba, unggoy man at may iphone. Unggoy pa din

  24. Pusang Kulog says:

    @lolipown

    Oi bobo, read the comments before expressing joy. ZDNet is a crap website. Kung may website mang mapagkakatiwalaan, Engadget un. Nakikisakay ka lang sa finding ng iba.

  25. schizo says:

    @Baklang Bulog

    Tangina mo, kahit saang post ni Yuga umeepal ka talaga.

  26. lolipown says:

    @Pusang Kulog
    oh? Eh nihinde mo rin finding yun eh, nakikiride ka rin lol. Di mo rin ata alam ang definition ng “shipped” code.

    And yes, try to read updates on the story. It’s a closed case.

    Also instead of hurtling adhomenim attacks, try to back your arguments with facts. Ikaw nagmumukhang bobo :)

  27. Pusang Kulog says:

    @lolipown

    adhomenim or ad hominem? ikaw ang bobo. spelling pa lang tanga ka na. ahaha

    hmmm, blog siya kaya inaacknowledge ko finding nila, automatic na yun. ikaw na tanga ka, link pa ng ibang nagcomment ang ginamit mo. d mo kayang magresearch mag isa.

    natural closed case na siya. stipulated na magbabayad na ang Google sa Oracle eh. natalo ang amo mo :)

  28. lolipown says:

    @PK
    Wow, i missed a space and the earth is crumbling oh noes.

    Blog = integrity? Oh hohoho. Someone didn’t get the memo it seems.

    Sino nga ulet ung source nung expose? A non-developer who’s not familiar with Android, not to mention Java. A non-lawyer but who plays one on TV? Qualified? Well, para sa iyo and sa engadget oo.

    Ano nga ulet ung ‘expose’? Copied code? Copied code on what? Copied where?

    Also, stipulated != proven but since you seem to forget that blogs are opinionated… I rest my case.

    FYI: this is a post about the Android Market. Naliligaw ka?

  29. Pusang Kulog says:

    @lolipown

    Cool story, bro. Rest your case nga, wala ng sense mga reply mo. Spelling pa lang ng pinagmamalaki mong “ad eminem” mali ka na, tapos expect mo papatulan pa kita.

    Kung hindi malaking issue ang copyrights sa iyo, buti pang lumipad ka na sa planetang pinanggalingan mo. Ay wait, typical pinoy ka pala, walang kwenta mga copyrights sa inyo, kasi more than 50% ng pinas peke ang OS.

    Dinederive mo lang mga reply mo sa katangahan mo. Hmmm sino bang papaniwalaan ko: anonymous troll na tulad mo o ang mga *cough* writers *cough* ng Engadget.

    Blogs like Engadget cite their sources, di tulad mo.

    FYI: this is a post about the Android Market. Naliligaw ka?

    Pinatulan mo argument ko tapos yan pananapos mo? Tanga ka talaga.

  31. schizo says:

    As much as I’d like to snap the neck of the pig above me, may point siya. Google copied code from Oracle: kahit anong subterfuge gawin nating mga Android users, it’s been done. they’ll just settle in court for all we care.

    @lolipown

    “FYI: this is a post about the Android Market. Naliligaw ka?”

    pards, you replied to his off-topic comment. bale ad-hominem yang statement mong yan.

  32. jamby says:

    confirm ko lang…when browsing the app market thru pc,..you also need your phone connected at the same time so that apps can be installed…right??

  33. lolipown says:

    @PK
    ooh i love how people assume on the internet :). Cool story, bro.

    @schizo
    technically yes, i did call him out but the question still remains, this is about Android right?

  34. lolipown says:

    oh and PK, who would you believe?
    Engadget’s source: Florian Mueller, a non-technical person.

    Or Ed Burnette, the blogger who refuted Engadget and from as you say “crappy” zdnet who’s an author of several books on Android?

  35. Pusang Kulog says:

    @lolipown

    Your story is the coolest, bro.

  36. Pusang Kulog says:

    @lolipown

    Hello source-whore, you mentioned that a while ago, why reiterate it? is that the best rebuttal your feeble mind can go after?

    Of course he’ll defend Android, he wrote a book about Android, numbnuts.

    Glad to know that Google and Oracle already settled this (and Google admitted using Oracle’s closed-source codes). Now go ride Burnette’s dick.

  37. Totem says:

    @Pusang Kulog, why so butthurt? Did I mention any name? No, I didn’t.. Asshole, if you’re trying to correct someone’s grammar then better check yours first


    @Totem

    YOUR the one trolling. Android just copy the code from Oracle. At least Apple does not do that.

    And apps… hmmm… Nokia has better apps”

  39. lolipown says:

    lol @avatar-reference. Ah well, di talaga makakausap ang nagiissue ng strawman sa argument.

    >Of course he’ll defend Android, he wrote a book about Android, numbnuts.

    Of course engadget would bash Android, they’re Apple’s suckbots. Much like you.

  40. Pusang Kulog says:

    @lolipown

    got proof? or did you just crop that out of thin air like the rest of your comments. :)

  41. schizo says:

    @lolipown

    Dude, that one hit me. Engadget? You must mean Gizmodo or Yugatech.

    Engadget’s balanced to ALL operating systems. Do you even watch their show?

    Have you tried typing in http://engadget.com/exclude/apple

    I’m pretty sure you don’t.

  42. Epstein says:

    @Totem

    16,990 Php 12 months 0%. I purchased it the very day it was delivered in SM Megamall. Narinig ko mabili daw.

    @Others

    WOW! May away na naman. Haha, oh well hindi naman na talaga mawawala yan. Kahit saang website ka pumunta merong away, ahahaaaay…

  43. froilanG says:

    @csseyah

    Punta ka na lang sa getjar.com para makadownload ka ng .apk files. I set mo na lang yung phone sa kahit anong android phone.

  44. csseyah says:
