Total Commander is the first real file explorer to make it’s way into the official Fire TV and Fire TV Stick appstore. Sure there are plenty of file explorers, which are probably more feature rich than Total Commander, that you can sideload onto the Fire TV, but it’s nice having one available directly from Amazon. One of the features of most file managers, which Total Commander supports, is that they allow you to sideload apps. Since Total Commander can access USB drives connected to the Fire TV’s USB port, the addition of this app means you can now sideload apps onto the Fire TV without havigng to connect via ADB or a PC utility like adbFire. Total Commander could now be the easiest way to sideload apps onto the Fire TV for some people. Look for a guide up shortly on how to use Total Commander to sideload apps. You can even install plugins for Total Commander to expand its capabilities, like accessing APKs stored in Dropbox or Google Drive.
