Thanks everyone for your input, and yes, you are correct. You cannot open .jar files on a DROID. If you have any additional questions about apps on your DROID please feel free to contact us back.

Huh?  Apps for the Android system end in .apk format.  To install apps that are not found in the android market, you have turn on the third-party install found under Applications within the Settings.  Can you give us some more information? 

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Oh, man, the last time I heard of a .JAR file was on a Motorola Razr!

 

That ain't goin' on a Droid....:smileysurprised:

 

Unless you have some more context to share about this.....

.jar files are java executables aren't they? I can see the confusion but while Android apps are written in Java, android apps are packaged in .apk files.
