    What's the app? And from what website are you trying to download it? There are two ways to download and install an app: 1) Downloading the app to your computer and installing via DM or 2) OTA downloads (over the air), where you use your BB browser and download via a website.

    Yeah depends what type of file it is.

    .alx + .cod is desktop install, .jar or .jad is over the air install.

    I would like to be able to do it via my computer. I already downloaded the screenlock app, but I can't figure out how to install it

    It depends on the type of app. If its an OTA app I usually just email the link after I have rt clicked copy link to my phone from my home email. When it hits the phone I just click download..

    You have to run the installed app on your computer, then plug in your BB and install via Desktop Manager.

    IMO, intalling apps via DM stinks. I steer clear of installing apps via DM. I always search for the OTA version. Much simpler.

    Is the app you downloaded for the Storm? There may be multiple versions of the same app, but for different devices. That may be the problem.

    The app may not be the version required for the Storm.

    I must be a complete ******. I changed the file name to a .cod, .asx and asi. DM would not recoginize it at all and I am to dumb to navigate using the BB browser. I can open the browser but it is way to slow. Anyone have any other ideas? I really want this app. It is the one that locks the face during a phone call. HELLLLPPPPPP!!!! It is in the blackberry storm forum.
