At this year’s Google I/O, Google previewed super cool over-the-air app installation which is scheduled for the next version of Android: Gingerbread. But the good news is you can get it now, unofficailly.
AppBrain is a thirdparty Android MarketPlace which lets you install all the apps over the air from your PC, Mac via Web without touching the phone. All you have to do is install the AppBrain marketplace. (Most Android MarketPlace titles are available on this App store as well).
Apart from what is already said, AppBrain can synchronize a list of your installed apps with a list of the apps you want on the web and then download the new items on the fly.
Here’s a closer look at the appBrain Marketplace:

Is it secure?
AppBrain’s apps connect you through your Google’s Auth without ever actually seeing your password. Apart from that there’s no guarantee of stuff they are doing int he background.
However, there’s one downside: AppBrain’s instant installer only works for free applications, paid apps need little more work.
