TikTok releases new app for Amazon Fire TVs but it’s not what you think


TikTok has just released a new app, called More on TikTok, for all Amazon Fire TV devices. However, if you’re a fan of the video-sharing social network, prepare to be disappointed. The app is nothing more than a clunky cookie-cutter web app using the Amazon Creator web-tool that has plagued the Fire TV appstore with a steady stream of junk apps for years. The content in new TikTok app is simply just a subset of the exact same compilation and interview videos already found on TikTok’s YouTube channel.

Just enter your search term into the URL field on either the Home screen or the Browser screen of the app and hit Go to directly load a Google search in the app’s built-in browser. Read more ›
