How to Install Apps on Fire TV Stick

  • iOS users try the Sideloader for Fire TV app on iTunes ($1.99, which is cheaper than buying an Android phone to sideload your apps).
  1. Install the Android app of your choice (we’ll call it AppX) on your Android phone
  2. Install a “sideloader app” such as AGK Fire (or Apps2Fire) on your Android phone
  3. On your Android phone, open AGK Fire and then click on the app of your choosing (AppX) in your list of apps.  Then click “Install on XX.XX.XX.XX”.
  4. On your FireTV, go to Settings > Applications > Manage Downloaded Applications > (App Name Here [AppX]) > Open.

Top Picks in our list of apps for FireStick:

Minecraft: Story Mode – Yes, it’s available for FireStick, too.
