In today’s guide, I will take you through the steps to install AppLinked on FireStick. I will also provide the steps to sideload third-party apps using AppLinked. This guide will work for all Amazon Fire TV and Android devices.
Some time back, FileLinked shut down for unknown reasons. As it provided a fairly easy way to sideload apps on Amazon FireStick and other Android devices, many users were looking for a FileLinked alternative.
Read: Best AppLinked Codes
Within a matter of few weeks, quite a few FileLinked clones have sprung up. AppLinked is one of them and so far, it seems like a great alternative. It works in a similar fashion to FileLinked. You simply need to enter the AppLinked code to install your favorite APKs, making faster installations possible. Normally, there are multiple Apps available under one code, all you got to do is browse and find what you like.
There is a wide variety of apps across diverse categories such as TV shows, movies, live TV, sports, and lots more.
Even if you do not have any code, you can still download APKs from the extensive App categories available on the home screen of the app. I will show you how to do that, so stay tuned for that.
