I added a DONATE button... my HTC Magic device was stolen.. i need a new one for testing...
Once i have enough for it i will remove the donate button :0)


Now with Mac support :0)


The idea is basic... start the application and drag & drop all your .apk files and they will get installed on your device.
It will accept multiple files, multiple folders or a combination... the app. will automatically pick up any file with the extension .apk or .APK... so just simply drag&drop.

Or you can just double click on any .apk file and the app. will install it for you without the graphical part starting up.
You can follow the progress on the app. and/or find a log.txt inside the folder "Logs". Just make sure to extract the application to a folder where you have write permission or there will be no log files!!!!
A log will be made regardless of the graphical part starting up or not.
Do not forget to give it time to install or the log will be incomplete.

If you want the "-r" flag set then check the comboBox named doReInstall.
The flag "-r" will basically install the app even if it is already installed, but will not disturb the app's settings.
See the adb doc for more info.


DO NOT TOUCH THE "Tools" AND "Logs" FOLDERS....
NOR SHOULD YOU MOVE/TOUCH THE ".bat" OR ".sh" FILES (unless you KNOW what you are doing).


Windows:
Double click on the "AppInstaller.jar" file or on the "WindowsRunMe.bat" to start the graphical app.

If you want the .apk double-click feature do the following:
1)Right-click on any .apk file and choose "properties".
2)Under "Opens with" row choose "change".
3)Navigate to where the "WindowsRunMe.bat" is located and select it.
4)Choose "ok" then "Apply".
5)Enjoy :0)
Remember that the log files will still be under the "Logs" folder.

You want the reInstall-feature when you use the double clicks? Then right-click on the .bat file and choose "edit".
Change "DOREINSTALL=false" to "DOREINSTALL=true". Save!
That's it :0)



Linux(Ubuntu running gnome desktop/nautilus) :
DO NOT START THE APP WITH DOUBLE CLICK...IT WILL NOT LOAD CORRECTLY.
ALWAYS USE "LinuxRunMe.sh" SCRIPT.
REMEMBER TO GIVE THE SCRIPT EXECUTE PERMISSION :0)

If you want the .apk double-click feature do the following:
1)Right-click on any .apk file and choose "properties".
2)Under the "Open with" tab choose "add".
3)Choose "use custom command" and navigate to where the "LinuxRunMe.sh" file is located and select it.
4)Make sure that the .sh file is highlighted under the "Open with" tab.
5)Enjoy :0)
Remember that the log files will still be under the "Logs" folder.

You want the reInstall-feature when you use the double clicks? Then double-click on the .sh file and choose "Display".
Change "DOREINSTALL=false" to "DOREINSTALL=true". Save!
That's it :0)


MAC:
I have no idea, but i bet that the linux way should work :0)
Can somebody confirm?


Hope that you will like the work.

Mac users!
I have no mac... so i can not test the app...
Please feel free to confirm it's working :0)

The app is in java, so it should run on all platforms :0)


ALL FEEDBACK ARE WELCOMED...
If you get/find any bugs, post the log file here or send it to me in a PM.
Then i can debug it :0)

I tested it on both linux and windows(xp + 7). It was working fine.

The adb binary are inside the Tools folder... So there is no need to set the system-path thingy..
Just to make it easier for people :0)
Again.. DO NOT TOUCH THEM NOR THE SCRIPTS.

Did not know about them..
But this is a single purpose solution... INSTALL OF APK(s).

The other tools are way to cluttered and advanced...
This is simple and fast....

I like it :0)
But thx for the info... i can surly use them for more advance stuff :0)
