Droid Bionic: Share Apps with Your Friends

Obtaining new apps for your Droid Bionic from the Android Market is easy. When you find an app that you love so much that you just can’t contain your glee, feel free to share that app with your friends. You can easily share a link to the app in the Android Market by following these steps:

  1. Visit the app on your download list.

    The app doesn’t have to be on your list of downloaded apps; it can be any app in the Market. You just need to be viewing the app’s description screen.

  2. Touch the Share button.


    A menu appears, listing various apps and methods for sharing the app’s Market link with your pals.

  3. Choose a sharing method.

    For example, choose Text Messaging to send a link to the app in a text message.

  4. Use the chosen app to send the link.

    What happens next depends on which sharing method you’ve chosen.

The result of these steps is that your friend receives a link. They can touch that link on their phone or other mobile Android device, and be whisked instantly to the Market, where they can view the app and easily install it on their gizmo.
