Typically, applications come in one of two forms.

.jad - installed OTA(Over The Air) - must use blackberry browser to install from a website
.alx - installed via Desktop Manager after downloading to a PC.

Either way, the application must be specifically designed for the model blackberry you are using.
The Search tool and BlackBerryFAQ answer many questions.
