HTC Sync Update Allows Users To Install Non-market Apps On The HTC Aria

Here’s some rather good news for HTC Aria owners. Turns out that the latest update to HTC Sync allows users to install third-party .APK files on non-rooted devices, something which AT&T generally does not allow.

It could be an indication that AT&T might be more lenient when it comes to installation of apps on its AT&T-branded phones in the future, which would be good news for AT&T subscribers who like to customize their phones, and will also help AT&T challenge Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile when it comes to android phones.

The update also includes the “Mobile Network Sharing” function, which could be a hotspot app that allows users to share their data connection via the phone’s built-in Wi-Fi.
