How to: Install apps from SD card on Windows Phone 8

 windows phone 8
 Windows Phone 8 now supports the ability to install apps from the SD card. Windows Phone app files are known as .XAP files and you can download the .XAP files to your PC then add them to the SD card on the phone.
Here’s how to install apps and games from the SD card.
  1. Insert an SD card that contains one or more .XAP files into your phone.
  2. On Start Start button, tap Store Marketplace tile, then tap SD card.


    If you’ve just inserted the SD card or added the .XAP files, you might need to wait a few minutes before you can access your SD card from the Store.
    3.Select the apps you want, then tap Install.


    • Apps that can be installed are listed under Compatible apps.
    • You’ll need to have the latest version of the .XAP file from the Store on your SD card before you can install it. If you don’t have the latest version, it’ll be listed under Incompatible apps.
    • 4.Installed apps appear in the App list and games appear in the Games Hub. Depending on the specific app or game, you’ll be able to use them as follows:
      • Free apps and games can be used immediately.
      • Paid apps and games that have a trial will be available as a trial version that you can purchase later.
      • Paid apps and games without a trial must be purchased before you can use them.
    • Being able to install the apps from an SD card will be great for those who use multiple Windows Phone devices, families who want to share apps between them and those devices with low internal memory.
