In this detailed tutorial, I will demonstrate the steps to successfully install APKTime on FireStick, Android TV/Google TV device. The same instructions will also apply to Android phones and tablets. These installation instructions are relevant to a range of Amazon Fire TV devices, encompassing Fire TV Stick 4K Max, FireStick 4K, Fire TV Cube, FireStick Lite, and Fire TV Televisions. Before diving into the APKTime installation process, let’s take a brief moment to understand its functionality and ensure its safety considerations.
On occasion, there might be a desire to install applications that aren’t accessible through the official Amazon App Store or Google Play. Various reasons can contribute to the absence of certain apps from official sources. This is precisely where APKs come into the picture. An APK (Android Package Kit) represents a packaged file format employed by Android devices for the distribution and installation of applications. An APK is simply the file used to install an Android application onto your device.
Currently, there are hundreds of websites dedicated to providing downloadable APK files. One of the most popular platforms to do this is APKTime.
What is APKTime?
APKTime stands out as a premier and widely favored choice when it comes to acquiring APKs. This platform offers an extensive collection encompassing numerous categories such as Top APKs, Entertainment, Games, Animation, Essentials, Sports, and even adult content. Notably, APKTime maintains a continuous stream of updates, ensuring the inclusion of the latest releases. The best part? You can freely download APKs without the need for any subscriptions or sign-up processes. Navigating through APKTime’s interface is straightforward and user-friendly. Furthermore, APKTime effectively eliminates the limitations posed by geo-restrictions, making them a thing of the past.
Is APKTime Legal?
It’s impossible for TROYPOINT to determine whether these unverified applications hold the proper licensing.
Before you install APKTime it’s important to know the legal consequences.
If and when an application is deemed illegal, we notify our users immediately and update reports on our Website to reflect that information.
Although APKTime does distribute apps that might infringe copyright, users can always access media legally that is available for free in the public domain. Works such as this are not protected by copyright laws and may be downloaded, streamed, and shared without any legal ramifications.
In conclusion, the end-user is responsible for all content accessed through the APKTime APK and others just like it.
Is APKTime APK Safe to Use?
Before I install APKTime, I first want to scan the official Android APK installation file with VirusTotal.
Here is the screenshot of the scan results.
VirusTotal did not find any malicious viruses/malware within the official APKTime APK URL.
However, this does not mean we shouldn’t protect ourselves when using this unverified application on our devices.
We always preach about the importance of using a VPN with unverified applications like this to protect our data from 3rd party developers.
Now, here are the steps we went through to install APKTime through the free TROYPOINT Toolbox.
Recent APKTime Updates
One reason why APKTime on Firestick & Android TV/Google TV is so popular is due to the developer providing timely updates for the applications available within. Some of the applications available no longer own a website where the APK updates can be downloaded from and APKTime is the only option in many cases.
Here’s the latest and greatest from APKTime:
