Downloader v1.1.4 is now live — Fixes issue preventing Fire TV 3 from installing APKs

Version 1.1.4 of my Downloader app is now live and available for all Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition televisions to use. The main purpose of this release is to fix an issue that was preventing owners of the new Fire TV 3 from installing APK files. If you have version 1.1.3 installed and can’t get your Fire TV to update the app, you can always uninstall it and then reinstall to get the latest version.

As Fire TV 3s began arriving yesterday, the issue with Downloader was discovered around mid-day and I had a fixed version completed and submitted that evening. If you appreciate the quick turnaround, please consider supporting the app by donating through the buttons on the app’s home screen or by supporting me on Patreon.

Downloader app incompatible with Amazon Fire TV 3 – Fix has already been submitted and is pending Amazon approval

The current 1.1.3 version of my Downloader app in the Amazon appstore is not compatible with the new Amazon Fire TV 3. When you try to install an APK file within Downloader, the APK does not install and a message saying “No app found to handle this file” appears. I have fixed the issue and have already submitted an updated 1.1.4 version of Downloader to the appstore. The update just needs to be approved by Amazon first, which usually takes about 24 hours, so the update should be live tomorrow. In the meantime, you can use Downloader to download files as usual and then switch to the free app Total Commander in order to install APKs. Simply navigate to the “Internal shared storage” > “Downloader” directory inside Total Commander and select the APKs you want to install.
