How to Install Applications Using the Downloader App.
The Downloader Apps works in two ways. You can side-load apps via the Home address bar or click Browser to open a Web Browser.
Shown below is a screenshot of the Downloader App’s Web Browser function.
This works well when downloading a file from a web page. The mouse within this application works fabulously with both the Firestick and Fire TV.
If you need to install an APK from a web-page without a direct link, you can click with ease.
This example shows TVZion which will then begin the installation process of downloading an APK.
If you know the direct download link of the file you are looking for, the Browser Tab is not needed and you can install directly from the Home page.

The file will automatically begin to download:
You can then begin the installation process of your intended APK or app.
Other Features – Downloader App
One of the best features the Downloader App provides is its Favorites Tab that works just like that on your Computer Browser.
If you frequently visit a webpage to install or update APK’s, this is a perfect place to do so.
Using the Downloader App is breeze, mainly in part because it is fully functional without a mouse or keyboard.
Shown below is the controls for all buttons on your Firestick or Fire TV remote:
While all the above are great aspects of this application, the best is that Downloader is 100% ad-free.
