How to Install AppLinked on FireStick

Hi there! I am Nick. In this article, I will show you how to install AppLinked on FireStick. The steps I have provided in this guide work on the entire range of Fire TV devices, including FireStick Lite, Fire Stick 4K, and Fire TV Cube.

AppLinked is a file-sharing app that is a great alternative to FileLinked. FlieLinked, also known as DroidAdmin, has been a pretty popular file-sharing app in the Firestick/Android world. Unfortunately, for some time now, FileLinked has been unavailable for download. This has significantly boosted AppLinked’s popularity as it works just like FileLinked.

You might have heard about Strix, Media Lounge, and UK Turks. Well, Inside4ndroid is the developer studio that is the architect behind these wonderful apps. And now, they have made this great file-sharing app. It has some wonderful features like:

  • AppLinked Store: The Applinked Store allows you to download apps that range across several different categories like entertainment, sports, live TV, utility, etc.
  • Media Sharing: Using AppLinked, you can share both videos and images.
  • Quick installation of apps: AppLinked can convert links to multiple APKs into a numeric code. This significantly speeds up the app installation process.
  • High Compatibility with Android devices: AppLinked is not only compatible with FireStick but also with many other Android devices like Android TV boxes, Android smartphones, and tablets that run on Android.

Applinked is now added to our list of Best Apps for FireStick.

Is Applinked Safe & Legal?

AppLinked’s unavailability on Amazon App Store may raise some eyebrows. Even I was a bit skeptical at first and, hence, wanted to run a malware check on AppLinked’s APK. It ran clean on my paid version of Kaspersky, and so I have not hesitated to use it. I know a few friends who also use it and no one has reported anything fishy to date.

How to Install AppLinked on FireStick (Detailed Steps with Images)

AppLinked is not a part of the Amazon App Store. Therefore, you can’t download it directly, unlike other officially supported apps. An external downloader app like Downloader is necessary to fetch the APK and install it.

I will divide this tutorial into three parts. The first part will show you how to get Downloader up and running on your Firestick. The second part will show you how to get your FireStick ready for installing apps from unknown sources. In case you already have completed these steps before, then you can skip them. The final part will show you how to download and install AppLinked using Downloader.

Part-1: Installing Downloader

To install the Downloader app on your FireStick, please go through the following steps:

1. Press the Home button on the remote of your Firestick. Click on Find and then select Search.
