    Hi!
    I'm trying to install an app (not from Google Play Store) and when I tap install nothing happens . I restarted my phone and it still doesn't let me .
    What do I do?

    Hi Ioana, welcome to the forums! Which phone do you have? Make sure you have "unknown sources" enabled in your security settings. Just remember that you need to be careful when downloading apps outside the official stores

    I have an Samsung Galaxy SIII mini and I have turned on the install apps from unknown sources option . The problem is when I tap the Install button nothing happens.

    I'm not sure then, maybe there are some incompatibility issues with that app and your phone. You could try clearing cache and data for the Download manager, reboot your phone and try again. Also make sure that the previous installations didn't left behind any file related to that app.

    I did what you told me and I also tried installing another app and the same problem appeared. I tried installing 2 different apk's and when I tap install still nothing happens.

    Is this problem happening in the same store/Web page? Can you download apps from a different source?

    The app I'm trying to install is a torrent from thepiratebay and the others are themes for a launcher but each one is from a different website.

    Sorry, that is not an approved app store, and shall not be discussed here.
