How do I install applications from the memory card on my Lumia phone?

These steps apply to Lumia phones with a memory card slot.

To install apps and games from your phone's SD card perform the following:

  1. Insert an SD card that contains one or more .XAP files into your phone. Notes: Copy .XAP files to root of storage on SD card.
  2. On Start > tap Store and then SD card. Notes: If you have just inserted the SD card or added the .XAP files, you might need to wait a few minutes before SD card appears to the Store main menu. If you have still problems to see SD card reboot the phone.
  3. Select the apps you want, and then tap Install. Notes: Apps that can be installed are listed under Compatible apps. You will need to have the latest version of the .XAP file on your SD card before you can install it. If it is not the latest version, it will be listed under Incompatible apps.
  4. Installed apps appear in the App list and games appear in the Games Hub.
