Install Android App from website.

I don't want the app to start, I just want it to start the install when the
link on an email is selected. The user will then be able allow the app to
install or not using the using standard Android install dialog, then fire
the app up after the install completes or from their app screen. I am just
trying to bypass the extra step of pulling down the status bar and selecting
the downloaded apk to start the install.

I hope not. It would be an extreme security risk if apps would start without
any user intervention. There is a notification in the status bar when the
app has been installed and that's sufficient for the user to know that the
app is ready to start.
