Install & Use FileSynced on FireStick [FileLinked Alternative]

FileSynced on FireStick

In today’s guide, you will learn the steps to install FileSynced on FireStick and Fire TV devices. You will also learn how to use FileSynced to sideload third-party apps. 

If you use Android or Android TV devices, you can install FileSynced app from the Google Play Store itself (Some region may not have it in Google Play Store, please use the URL provided in this guide in that case).

FileSynced is a FileLinked clone. It allows you to download and share files. However, like FileLinked, FileSynced is also used to sideload third-party apps.

Once you have FileSynced installed on your device, downloading third-party apps will become a whole lot easier. You can enter numeric codes for the APKs that you want to install.

After FileLinked shut down, a lot of us were looking for its alternative. FileSynced seems to be the best clone available currently. We also have AppLinked and Unlinked that work similarly to FileSynced.

Not only does FileSynced allow us to download file with codes, but it also has a Trending Codes option that features some of the most popular apps that you can download. We think this is one of the best features of the app as you don’t need to know Codes in order to use this app.

Developers are still working on the app and its features as it’s a fairly new app. We shall keep you updated with the new developments.

You can also check out our guide listing the Best Downloader Codes, which work in a similar fashion to FileSynced or FileLinked Codes.
