The Android TV operating system offers some pretty nice features that you can not find on boxes that are sold online as “AAndroid Boxes” The most important difference between Android TV and a box that runs Android is that Android TV boxes are set up to run apps that are made for TV’s and can be fully used with a simple directional remote that does not require the ability to drag and click.
This is really great for people who want a different flavor for their TV operating system and a kodi friendly environment. But what it lacks for some people is a variety of other Android apps that are available in the Google Play Store and websites as APK downloads. And the truth is that some Android fans still want to use what would be thought of as traditional drag and click Android apps on their TV. How do you get them on your Android TV device. One great solution is the Aptoide TV store.
The Aptoide TV store was developed by Aptoide, which is an alternative app store for Android mobile devices. It is free to download and can even be added to an Android TV box without any trickery. The original Aptoide store though is like the original Google Play Store. It has a mobile focus. The Aptoide TV store focuses almost exclusively on helping you find TV-friendly apps, video players, media encoders and things like that all in an interface built for directional remotes using the official Android SDK.
Some of the apps in the store will still require users to have an air-mouse to fully utilize them though users can also use the mouse toggle app as a workaround. See more on the Aptoide TV store in the video below.
