At this point in time no, you can only do desktop installs using Desktop Manager on a PC unfortunately!

So I only use a PC if I MUST, so whenever I can I do all OTA installs!

Pocketmac most certainly does have an application loader.

Taking the same application off via PocketMac is a completely different story though, correct?

I haven't been able to take an app off with PM.

Is there a trick to this or does it not take apps off. There is an uninstall function but it doesn't seem to work.
