I hope you have the .apk file. You should install it to try out the app. –  arpitnext Mar 19 '13 at 20:57

1 Answer 1

First off, you're going to want to build your app. From eclipse, follow these instructions.

Secondly, on your device, make sure you allow installation of apps from sources other than the Play Store. Settings -> Security -> Unknown Sources

Thirdly, save/copy the APK from step 1 to your device or SD card. Navigate to the APK file on your phone (You can use an app like ES File Explorer). Select the APK file and choose "Install" (or similar, I'm not exactly sure of the wording).

Fourthly, test!
