You have a new Android phone and you want to do EVERYTHING in it!
However, after you set up your phone, you realized that there are too little applications on your phone. How?!
Well, in the Android ecosystem, there is an Android Market where you can download more than 70,000 apps to your phone, which ranges from Communications, Entertainment, Finance,Productivity, Social and Games!

So where can I find these apps? Or rather, where is the Android Market?
Go to your HOME screen where you may see an icon on the screen as below, or alternatively, go to your apps drawer to find the icon.
Click on the icon to launch the Android Market on your phone.
You can scroll and view the apps available in the Android Market. Alternatively, click on the MENU button and select the ‘Search’ option, which is the first option of the options menu.
You can also perform a search using the small magnifying glass button at the top right corner of the screen.
When you select on a particular app, you will be brought to the details of the app, together with comments by the users of the app. You can then choose whether to install the particular app.
The wonderful part about the Android Market is that you can download the app anytime anywhere you like, as long as there is an internet connection! You can browse the Android Market while you are waiting for a friend, in the bus/cab, or snuggle under your blanket when you can’t sleep!
Under the Android market, you can also view the list of apps that you have downloaded.
Click on the MENU button, and there will be a ‘Downloads’ selection. Click on the button and you will see the list of apps that you had downloaded. You can then perform an upgrade (if available), or uninstall the app from here.
