Hi there-
We're currently working on getting the App into the Android Market, but wanted to allow you guys to get it sooner.
For, now it's available only as a direct download from SideReel:

Can you let us know what version your phone is and where you're clicking to download the app? Thanks!

make sure to go to Settings->Applications and check "Unknown sources" box to be able to install apk file.

Get it either by downloading from ur PC and transfer to phone (dropbox,usb, etc) or get Astro from market and in Menu->More->Preferences and check the "Enable Browser Download" and you should then be fine to get from phone browser

I love it! It's so fast, and I haven't encountered any bugs (knock on wood.) You guys streamlined it from the web version VERY well. I'm not missing any features or overwhelmed with too many. I've been waiting on this app for a while, and it has definitely become one of my most used apps. :)

Good job 1st off on the work. I just got an android phone this week so sorry if I miss something obvious. I tried searching for this app several times and couldn't find anything. I also clicked the link on your webpage to dl it on my comp then transfer it to my phone but, I don't think I did it right. It dl'd a "APK" file 757kb. Please let me know what I'm doing wrong and how to get this app.

If it matters I have a htc evo 4g.

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work

Hi! As you can see above, it's not in the market! The .apk file is correct - are you having trouble installing it from there?

So I had the Sidereel App downloaded on my Droid, and I loved it. However when I woke up this morning, the app was no longer installed, and I cannot find it in the market. What's up with that?

Hi erica! I'm not sure why it was no longer installed - did you search for the app on your phone? Unfortunately it was never in the Marketplace (but we're working on getting it there ASAP!) - the only place to currently down it is at sidereel.com/topic/android!

Woo! It's finally in the market! Just search for SideReel, or find it here: https://market.android.com/details?id...
