Even though I use the Tanix series TV boxes in most demonstrations, all information can be universally implemented on other brand Amlogic and AllWinner H6 devices.
This application will make installing new apps and updating existing ones much easier. With a simple to navigate interface, you will quickly learn just how easy it really can be. My website contains many of the items in this app but for the not too tech savvy individual, this will make it a snap. If you do not have this application on your device, you can download and install it from this page.
Ad Guard (Premium):
This excellent application will block ads on almost every app that contains ads. However it's quick to note that some apps may not allow for a ad blocker to be enabled when trying to use it. You can easily turn AdGuard on or off with the flip of a switch. AdGuard will conflict with VPN's so if you have one on your device, be aware that it will just turn off your VPN when you turn on AdGuard and vice versa. If you don't already have it on your device, download it from this page.
Aptoide Tv contains lots of stuff so you do not want to overlook this application. It contains a app store that is very well organized. You can also keep some of your basic apps updated with a press of a button. It will have a section that says "Available Updates" then you simply click on "Update All". Yes it's that easy. For those of you that just stick to the basics, this app is a must have on your device. If you don't have this application on your device already, you can find it on my main apk page. Click Here
Another great ad blocker to consider is Blokada. It has a 90% success rate in blocking those annoying ads in almost all your applications but it's not perfect. Some applications won't run with this app enabled or allow you to download from some places. It usually depends on your devices operating system so just keep that in mind. Sometimes trial and error is the best way to figure out what works and what doesn't. Chances are you won't run into too many apps that will conflict with Blokada, and with the ever growing ads invading your favorite apps, it's good to have Blokada on your side. As with all ad blockers, this will conflict with other VPN's. You will find Blokada here if you do not already have it on your device.
It's important to keep your device clean and with Ccleaner Pro, it makes that task a whole lot easier. The pro version contains features that the free version does not have. Scheduled cleaning and notification blocking are some of the features. I recommend running this cleaner once a week or just enable scheduled cleaning and set it to auto clean. With Ccleaner Pro installed on your device, there will be no more worries keeping your device running at top performance. If you don't have this application on your device already, download and install from this page.
Google Play Services:
It's important to keep Google Play Services up to date. Fortunately with the Tanix TV boxes and most of the newer 8.1 and 9.0 TV Boxes, make it a little easier to do. Click on the video button below for an explanation on what to expect and how to do it.
For those of you that don't have a Tanix or newer devices, click here for manual download + update.
This application cleans and stops applications that may be running in the background of your device causing it to slow down. It frees up ram so apps run better. This is the free version and does the job pretty well. There will be no need to purchase the full version. I recommend running this at the very least once every other week. If you don't already have this application on your device, it is available here.
Team Viewer Quick Support:
When you want me to connect to your device to help with basic issues then this is where you want to go. Simply go into this app, scroll to the right and you will see a 10 digit number. That will be your unique number that you can send for support. I only support boxes that I sell. Please be aware that some devices I am not able to connect too. The TX92 and the X92 are just 2 devices I have problems with remote supporting. If you don't already have Team Viewer Quick Support on your device, You can find it here.
Speed Test by Ookla:
Experiencing streaming issues? Try running a speed test to determine if your isp is running slow. You are still at the mercy of the source you're streaming from, so even if your speeds are high, it doesn't mean a flawless experience. If your speed is 15mbps or above, you should not have too many problems streaming from good sources.
