Galaxy Tab: How to Share Apps on the Market

By Dan Gookin

When you love an app that you have downloaded and used on your Samsung Galaxy Tab, feel free to share that app with your friends. You can easily share a link to the app in the Market by obeying these steps:

  1. Start the Market app.

  2. Choose My Apps from the top of the screen.

    Actually, the app doesn’t have to be on your list of downloaded apps; you can share any app in the Market.

  3. Choose the app from the list to display information about the app.

  4. Touch the See Details button.

  5. Touch the Share button.


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

  6. Choose a sharing method.

    For example, choose Gmail to send a link to the app in an e-mail message.

  7. Use the chosen app to send the link.

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

The end 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.
