comment How do I install a .apk on my Nexus 7 using the browser?
@mbamb19s: That is odd that the downloads tab is empty, although that sort of explains why pointing the browser directly to the apk didn't work either (haven't a clue why all your downloads would be seemingly disappearing, though...)

@StephenSchrauger: I can see why that causes confusion. It does work on my devices (and I presume yours as well), so it's not really clear why it wouldn't be in this case.

@StephenSchrauger: Apparently that wasn't working for the OP (it does work for me). Unless it was downloading and the OP didn't notice it, maybe.

@mbamb19s: If you're okay with using the Mac terminal, you could try that. Launch a terminal, then run echo '<a href="Astro.apk">Install Astro</a>' > ~/Documents/apkinstall.html and it should create the file for you. The only other thing I can think of is that Android File Transfer is messing with the file encoding, but I that seems kind of unlikely. You could test the HTML file in your Mac's browser to test that scenario, though.

@mbamb19s: if you're using TextEdit on your Mac, see my edit. It appears to save the file in the wrong format by default. It may be easiest to delete the file and recreate it with the same content (the text you typed in looks exactly correct).

@mbamb19s: So Chrome displays the plaintext when you open the file? Is it saved with a .html extension? Make sure it didn't end up with two extensions (e.g. apkinstall.html.txt or something). Some text editors will do that do you.

comment How can I record audio running through my S3 speaker on Jellybean?
You may want to clarify your title (possibly the body as well) a little bit then, because it seems to be quite identical based on the current phrasing. The OP of that question was looking to record audio being played back from a website as well.
