    Either use Installer.app
    or

    To all the people asking where, to put the files:

    - Go to your Applications Folder, make a new folder name (Whatever you want to call it).app
    - Then put all the files you unzipped into that new folder
    - Highlight them all, and set the permissions to 0755
    - Restart your phone
    - And you should now have this app working or as a matter of fact, and other app if you follow those directions....

    Are you talking about the application folder on the Phone... and if so... how do you access this. Also how do you set the permissions in OSX - I assume I can use FTP software - such as transmit to do this

    I have Windows, so I use WinSCP, but any of those sort of programs will work. The applications folder is accessed with a file browsing system, and its one of the main folders, easy to find.

    >.< i have the same question. i tried searching for a guide on manually importing apps into ipod touch but i couldnt find any.

    can i just import the apps right into the itunes(drag and drop?) or do i need to do something/have another program to do that?

    i have cydia and installer on my ipodtouch but the wifi in my area is just so crappy >.< so i cant get them directly off of the apps.
