This guide will show you How to Add Apps to Firestick/Fire TV home screen.

Now that the new Fire TV Interface has arrived on newer models of the Amazon Firestick, it is important to know how to arrange your apps to your liking.

Upon first glance at your Fire TV home screen, you may wonder where all of your Firestick Apps are located since they are not all listed in one place.

TROYPOINT TIP: Many Amazon Firestick/Fire TV users “jailbreak” the device to sideload 3rd party applications, and deleting unused apps over time will help the device run smoothly.

How to Jailbreak Firestick

Most of us would like to move the applications that we use on a regular basis to the front of the list under the category “Your Apps & Games”.

You may also want to get rid of some of the applications that are being displayed under the “Recent” heading that is also present on the home screen.
