What is Aurora Store?
Aurora is an app store that lets you easily install 3rd party apps on your FireStick. It has a very similar User Interface and features as the Aptoide Store.
The Aurora Store has tons of apps that you won’t find on the Amazon Store. In a way, you can say that it is an alternative to Amazon Store as well as Google Play Store.
Aurora Store is gaining a lot of popularity because of the following:
- Broad app collection: Aurora Store has a vast library of apps, including the most popular streaming APKs. It has most of the apps that the Google Play Store provides.
- Unique apps: Some apps that are available on the Aurora Store are not present on other stores like Google Play Store or Amazon App Store.
- Compatible with Android Device: Aurora store runs on Android or Android-based devices. This includes FireStick, Android TV Boxes, NVIDIA shields, Fire TV etc.
- Quick and Easy Installation: You don’t need to root your device to install Aurora Store.
Is it Safe & Legal?
Aurora Store has been around for some time now. I have personally used this app. I find it to be a very useful addition to my FireStick. But since it needs to be sideloaded and is not officially supported, I ran it through an Anti-Virus scan. No malware was reported in the scan, and the app has not troubled me since it was installed.
Following is the copy of the scan result:
Aurora Store lets you download several third-party apps. While Aurora Store itself may not be any trouble, you can’t be sure about the apps you get from it.
I recommend using ExpressVPN to avoid any trouble.
Known Technical issues with Aurora Store for FireStick
The Aurora Store might not respond well to the FireStick remote controller. So, while you are inside the store and need to navigate through it, you will need the Mouse Toggle application for navigation.
