  • Quickly switch between apps without using your remote

  • Easily launch side loaded apps

  • View all installed apps in an easy to read list

How it works

  • Install the App Shortcuts Remote on your
    Amazon Fire TV and enable the service.

  • Download and install App Shortcuts
    on your iOS, Android or Windows device.

  • Enter your Fire TV's address.

  • Tap on any app to launch it on your Fire TV.

How to get it

There are known issues with this app and Fire OS 5. Features such as the remote, keyboard, and side loading will not work this version. Launching apps still works perfectly.

The App Shortcuts server is available for sideloading on the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The companion app is available in the Apple App Store, Google Play, and Windows Phone Store.
