I'm definitely still learning when it comes to LC, however I've installed
hundreds of apk files on various Android enabled devices using
apkInstaller.  From those that I know and even my 12 year old daughter
knows how to install apk files that aren't available on the Android Market.
  With the apkInstaller app or similar, you can install apk files via
email, dropbox, your website, USB, etc.

Even if you put the apk on your mini sd card in your Android device you
should have no problems installing the apk with or without the apkInstaller.
