There is a useful tool built into all forum accounts that allows all users to fill in their phone's information, including their Android OS version, carrier, and other important details. Filling out that form here will make it much quicker and easier for any user to answer your questions.

Probably the main reason for the existence of our forums right now is to answer the questions of you, the end-user. Therefore, when you do ask questions, please try to remember to include your current country of residence, as that may be the clue we need to answer your question. The more specific you can be with all questions, the better.

Every day the AndroidPIT testing team puts up a test report on a new Android app. We have news pieces put up every weekday that cover the major daily Android developments. There is also an Apps section of the website with a regularly refreshed database of all apps and games available on the Android Market.

You encouraged to visit all sections of the website and enjoy all the services we have to offer. You are also encouraged to introduce yourself to the community and ask away. There may already be an answer to your question, so searching beforehand may save a lot of time, both for you and others.

How do I update/add to the information on my profile? ie; "My page"
Was able to put my phone details in, as they were asked for before I could write this question.
But, I can find no link or other method of updating my personal details.

The easiest way I have found to get applications that are not in the Android market (or where a device doesn't have a Market on it, is to Google the name of the app, followed by the ending .apk. For example, if you want Angry Birds without using the Market, you would Google Angry Birds.apk. I wouldn't guarantee you would find everything this way, but it is a good place to start.

Yes, but you ll also find pirated apps that way. Why not install them from the browser from here?:

Well thanks for having me in the forum, this is going to be an amazing experience. I always wanted to learn more about my archos. It is an android 1.0 and I am thinking about upgrading, but I like the smaller tablets and archos doesn't make any less than 7 inches now. Well, I look forward to doing some reading up and learning so be well.

The problem is that I have both a phone (HTC Sensation) and a small tablet (DMTECH Tablet 724w) with Android and there is only space to name one of them. Since the tablet isn't in the drop-down list I choose to name the phone. Unfortunately I strongly suspect the tablet will be the one giving me the most trouble.

Surely I can't be the only one with multiple devices?

It happens in the near future when cataclysmic disasters have turned the Earth into and endless sea. Corrupt government and elite citizens worldwide build the Draconian Empire, a giant military complex, while the rest left behind form the Forsaken which resorts to piracy to survive. And you are one of the Forsaken, a pirate who will take the lead to fight. In this way, Battle Pirates, a new seafight strategy game from the same developer of Backyard Monsters, blows the bugle for war. - mmohunter -

maybe you can tell about how to download android application in this forum...witout using android market...

There are tons of 3rd party app stores, mainly in China. They turn everything into FREE.

Examples :
www.mumayi.com/
himarket.com/

However, you need to be able to read Chinese in order to use them ^_^
