This doesn't work on my Fire TV 2 boxes. It used to connect to one of them but not the other despite being identical devices but since the last update it won't connect to anything. App can find them in the search and I've verified developer options are turned on in both devices but it always says 'Connected'. Then when I try to send a file it fails and tells me to check developer options, verify IP address, etc. I like how easy it is but I just can't get it to work at all anymore.

Try the following: 1) On Fire TV switch off and on again the developer options. 2) In Apps2Fire "SETUP" tab save the correct ip address of your Fire TV. 3) Open the tab "FIRE TV APPS" and refresh the page by sliding it down. 4) On TV screen confirm the dialog "USB debugging". Now you should be ready. If it still does not work send me an email. Koni
This didn't work the first few times I tried it, but after I restarted the firestick and clicked the dialog box that popped up on my TV to "always allow connection" it connected after that... I was able to send an app to my firestick and open it. Not all apps can work on firestick, btw. This won't fix that. It just sends the app you have to your stick. The ads are minimal. I had one small banner on top during setup. I really appreciate this app.

Extremely useful for installing game emulators on the Fire TV; many other apps work as well, though it depends on two main factors; the app's support (or lack thereof) for controllers (alternatively, you can sometimes use a mouse to control the touch screen apps) and whether or not the app video outputs properly- some apps may appear stretched. Experiment, or just use apps that are known to work for Fire TV, like RetroArch. Another nifty feature is the ability to copy files to the Fire TV.
