Firestick is a popular streaming device that lets you watch popular media contents on TV over internet connections. Users can install applications like Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and much more from the inbuilt app store to enhance their streaming experience. Users can also sideload some of the android apps unavailable in the App store. Applications like Kodi, Showbox, Cinema HD and more are only downloadable through sideloading method. While sideloading, some of the Android apps don’t work properly with the remote control. Those applications are developed for a device where the users can use their finger to navigate in the app. On Firestick, you can’t use your fingers for navigation. To avoid this issue, users can install Mouse Toggle to navigate those applications on Firestick.
