The app is installing the minute you download it so you would need to make a backup of the app. This can be done with the file-manager Astro
also available on the market.
1. Install Astro
2. Open Astro
3. Press menu
4. Press tools
5. Press Application manager/backup (a list of installed app's should appear)
6. Select the once you want to backup by marking the checkbox
7. Press menu
8. Press backup (The backup process should now start)
9. The apk-files should now be available in dir: /sdcard/backups/apps
There is an add-on for Astro which would give you bluetooth transfer capabilities enabling you to send and receive files.
I however prefer to use SwiFTP which turns your android device into an FTP-server for easy access to the files.
