Mke sure that "Unknown sources" is checked in application settings. This option allows for non-market alps to be installed. Also the apk isn't in a zip file?

Your not trying to install it through windows are you? Usually single tap will ask you to install using package installer.

Take it out of the zip for a start, put it on the root of your sd card (doesnt have to be root) and just press on it, it will bring up a window saying do you want to install, done... Use a normal file manager to get to the .apk
