  1. guest-avatar

    I downloaded the app from google play store ans it shows cancel and open. Then when it installs ( done ) it just shows uninstall and it does not show open so i cannot open the app . also the app does not show on any of my screens. Only in settings under ( apps ). So all i can do is answer ( not sure ) to all your questions under Tell us more.

  2. guest-avatar

    Not sure what the point of this app is. Easier to download Solid Explorer (I don't trust es explorer), load chrome .apk, allow chrome to install from unknown sources, done. Not even sure what this is supposed to accomplish

    Ok so its a great addon for my tv box, but it desperately needs the uninstall feature, you should be able to long press to show additional options like move, uninstall etc... Also, can you please update the icons so that they're rectangular rather than square so that it looks like a part of android tv? Also apps organised into categories would be useful

  4. guest-avatar

    Good for those apks not from the Play Store as their Icons do not show up in the 'My Apps' list! Two minor drawbacks 1) the highligts on each apk could be bighter as they are hard to see when scrolling the list 2) a delete fuction might also be handy. But, it's bright and attractive and it works!

  7. guest-avatar

    will not work or populate on nvidia shield tablet worked great on shield tv though, not sure what happened deleted and reinstalled twice no luck.

  8. guest-avatar

    Very helpful. Can you add long press options like APP INFO, UNINSTALL, or FORCE STOP...

  9. guest-avatar

    Installed on Nvidia Shield because some apps cannot be favourited or shortcutted!

  10. guest-avatar

    It has stopped working on Android tv

  33. guest-avatar

    Great app on my Sony smart TV, but... 1) unable to customized own apps showing on the screen 2) apps can not be sorted Overall it's great app till I found alternative one, --- HALauncher.

  34. guest-avatar

    HALauncher is way more powerful, customisable and shows all apps on home screen on android tv. This app is a bit redundant now... Bit was useful at one time.

  35. guest-avatar

    Great app. Does what it's supposed to, but no more. It would have been nice if this app actually enabled the regular Android app drawer icon (circle with dots) instead of a somewhat ugly app icon to bring up a somewhat ugly app drawer. That said, still a great app from a great Dev!

    Freekin' AWESOME! I installed Wifi File Explorer (because it's so much easier to use than EStrongs with just the remote) but couldn't launch it without going through Settings/Apps. Now I can! Now if I can just fine a better Home Screen without all the up-selling crap! :-)

  37. guest-avatar

    Simple, but that's the purpose, so that's ok. There doesn't seem to be any way to make it the default launcher on the Nexus Player though, and for some reason it doesn't show the Haystack app.

  38. guest-avatar

    I didn't know this fantastic app was made by chainfire. This is a must have launcher for android tv, now i can access my apks that I can't see

  39. guest-avatar

    Does anyone know why netflix doesn't show in my sideload launcher? I think it used to, but i had to uninstall and reinstall netflix a while back. Ever since then, it doesn't show up. I'm using a nexus player, if that has any relevance.

    I have an android TV but I'm confused how this works, Will gladly fix rating after answer from Dev

  41. guest-avatar

    I can use CrunchyRoll now... I'm guessing this app just looks for all Activities on the device that contain the correct intent-filter then shows that Activity icon. Simple yet incredibly useful.

  42. guest-avatar

    Would be great if we could rearrange the apps when the app opens, so that my most used apps or preferred apps are first. Or if we could hide some choices.

  43. guest-avatar

    Great app, only thing I would add is a shortcut to the overscan calibratior app built into Android TV (nexus player)

  44. guest-avatar

    Excellent free app for my Nexus Player. Only missing feature to me is the ability to re-arrange the order of apps. Please add this, and I'm more than willing to pay for using it!

  45. guest-avatar

    Everything you've done is impressive. Don't stop. You're best work is still yet to come. What's next?

  46. guest-avatar

    Simple application that does what it says it does... easy access to sideloaded or "unofficial" apps.

  47. guest-avatar

    Installed the app but can't find it anywhere on the phone can't start the application even play store saying it's installed

  48. guest-avatar

    The best solution to get to your apps on the shield. Thanks

  49. guest-avatar

    It's not letting me open the app
