Still drooling when you think of the new push install functionality in Android 2.2 Froyo‘s Market? Don’t have Android 2.2 on your device but would do anything for this functionality to be available for you? Your prayers have been answered.
AppBrain, an alternative front end for the Android Market, has launched what they’re calling the Fast Web Installer.
This little gem works with all Android versions starting with 1.5 and allows you to browse through the Android app catalogue on your computer, find the app you need, click Install, review app permissions, click Install again, and boom! The app gets automagically pushed to your Android phone and installed, without you even touching the device.
So what do you need to do?
If you’re already an AppBrain user and have the AppBrain app on your phone, just install the Fast Web Installer.
If you’re new to AppBrain: Go to AppBrain and sign in with your Google account (don’t worry, they won’t see your password). Then install the AppBrain Market app. Then install the AppBrain Fast Web Installer.
Appbrain also lets you share the list of your installed apps with anyone, enabling a great new way to discover interesting and useful apps. Which you can now easily install from your computer.
