    I'm getting my ASUS Transformer today but I'll be going away from my internet not long after. I want to have my apps ready to go before I get it so I can just throw em on an SD card and leave. I've visited various sites, but none of them have the variety of the app market. Is there anywhere I can find large support of .apk files?

    There are several options. AppBrain, Amazon App Market are two that immediately spring to mind. Also, you can find a lot of the APKs for apps at code.google.com.

    Finally, i posted here a search string you can put into Google that will find APKs available for dowload, do a search here for Google APK search and you should be able to find the thread.

    Thanks, I signed up for AppBrain and have a crapload of apps waiting to be downloaded. I'd prefer if I could just download all of them now and sideload later, but I need to have my account sync'd with my tablet.
