In this guide, I will show you how to download and install Applinked on Firestick. So, if you are interested then please read this article till the end.
After the shut down of Filelinked, people like me who used to download third-party apps via Filelinked were very upset because there were no alternatives to Filelinked up until now. Finally, FileLinked is back but this time with a different name Applinked.
This is very good news for all those users who were looking for apps like Filelinked now you don’t have to look further, you can now use Applinked on firestick to download any third-party applications.
You can now download and install Applinked on firestick and believe me, it is pretty much similar to old Filelinked, however, Applinked is still in the development stage but I have tested it on my own firestick and it works pretty fine. It even has the same kind of UI as Firelinked did as well.
After downloading and installing Applinked on my firestick device I realized there are so many firestick users who also want to get Applinked and that’s why I decided to write this article so that I can help all my fellow firestick users to install Applinked on their firestick as well.
Below in this guide, I have also listed some popular Applinked codes for firestick that you can use to download your favorite streaming or any other applications on firestick for free. Now before we proceed with the download and installation process I recommend my new viewers to read about the brief introduction of Applinked.
Applinked is a third-party applications downloader that can help firestick users to download any apps that they want on their firestick device. The specialty of this app is that instead of typing long URLs to download stuff you just simply need to enter the 8 digit codes i.e 12345678 to download apps.
Earlier there was an app known as Filelinked but unfortunately, that app is shut down and after a long period of time Filelinked is back but this time with the different name Applinked. Applinked is released recently and not many users are aware of this app but slowly it will gain the same popularity as Filelinked.
The app is currently in the Beta/development stage but it is working pretty much fine. I have downloaded and tested the app on my firestick and it is working fine. Now I think we have talked enough, let’s begin with the guide.
You can not directly download the Applinked app on firestick from the Amazon play store, the only way to download and install Applinked is by sideloading it. Before we sideload any app it is important to enabling Apps from unknown sources from firestick settings.
Amazon by default keeps it disabled for security reasons but believe me, it is completely safe to enable it. After enabling Apps from Unknown sources you can download and install any 3rd party apps including Applinked on firestick.
Don’t know how to enable it? well, follow the below steps to learn how to enable apps from unknown sources on firestick.
- First of all, you need to open your FireStick device.
- Now go to the settings of your firestick and click on the My Fire TV option.
- Now you need to click on Developer options.
- Now you need to click on Apps from Unknown sources to enable it. After that it will show you some warning kind of message, simply ignore it and click Ok.
As I already told you, you can not directly download Applinked from the Amazon app store. The only way to get this app is by sideloading it. Currently, Downloader is my favorite application to download and install any third-party apps on firestick.
Now for those who haven’t installed Downloader on firestick, please follow the below steps first to install the downloader app on firestick then only you can download Applinked APK on firestick.
- Open FireTV home screen and search for ‘downloader’.
- Click on the install button to start the downloading and installing process.

Now it’s time to install the Applinked apk on FireStick via the downloader application.
Step 1) First of all, open the ‘Downloader’ application that you installed earlier.
Step 2) Click on ‘Allow’ whenever it asks to grant all the required permissions. You can also change the permission afterward by going to Settings >> Applications >> Manage Installed Applications >> Downloader > Permissions.
Step 4) Now inside the box you need to type in this URL https://firestickwiki.com/applinked with the help of the On-screen keyboard and your firestick remote, after entering the URL click on the Go button. Note: Make sure to enter the URL correctly.
Step 5) If the URL entered by you is correct then the downloader app will connect to the server and start downloading the APK in no time. The size of the Applinked App is only 3.5 MB that’s why it won’t take more than 5 seconds to download the APK on firestick.
Step 6) After the Applinked APK is downloaded, you need to click on the Install button.
Step 7) Now after clicking on the Install button, the app will start installing.
Step 8) Once the application is installed successfully, click on the Done button.
Step 9) After the Applinked is installed successfully on firestick, you need to delete its APK because it is of no use and only taking unnecessary space.
Step 10) If it is asking for confirmation, simply click on the ‘ Delete’ button.
