If you are talking about apks downloaded from internet or transferred from PC, then it most likely will be in root/sdcard/download folder.

i would like to know where to find the apps that the samsung store downloads before it fails to transfer them.

Then all you need is to load the apks through bluetooth file transfer on to the gear, and intall it from the gear directly, you don't need gear manager at all for this.

As for why your s3 is not recognizing the gear, I am not sure. I had my note 2 on dn3 kitkat with latest gear manager (1.7 something I think) connected to my gear on null 23 rom and everything was working, including bluetooth file transfer, and I was able to install apks by bluetooth file transfer and then install from the gear itself.

thanks, typo. i corrected that. and i know i can install normal apks but of the few apps in the samsung store that are made for the gear, there are a couple of them i would like to use. also have been considering taking the plunge to tizen, but i need to know my phone can connect to the gear with with tizen and the newest gear manager.

I just did a download of an app from the samsung store. Its stored in the same folder as my other apps from the google play store, root/factory.

I am not sure why your s3 does not connect to the gear, sorry I cannot help as I do not have a s3. one would think it is capable as I have seen gear with null rom connected to s2 before. Perhaps someone else who has a s3 and gear can chime in and lend a hand here?

One thing though, if you have apk's that you would like on the gear, I would recommend staying with android for now, as Tizen is still too new, and of the few apps thats available, they are all from the official Samsung Store, at the moment we cannot install third party apps without going through Samsung Store on Tizen.
