Many have asked whether or not Show Box is available for download on mobile devices. Because it’s software is not compatible with iOS, it cannot be installed on an iPhone or iPad.

However, Kodi, Popcorn Time, and many other similar streaming applications can.

To do so, we must side-load an iOS app called TweakBox to the device. To learn how to install TweakBox on a mobile device, follow the link below:

I tried many iterations of trying to download showbox from other sites. I came across this and must say that this was far the most easiest way to download with simple and clear instructions. Absolutely FANTASTIC and all works well. Thank you very much Troy ?

Hi just downloaded shobox but wont let me click in movies only trending


Hi Laura, you need mouse toggle as post above covers.


I downloaded your mouse toggle works great and I also downloaded Showbox too but when I want to watch a movie it says amazon fire tv does not open browser link try opening the URL in the web browser on another device what do I do?


Liz, this is usually due to trying to play a trailer. You must not be clicking on actual play button for the movie or TV show.

My FireTV 3 lhas this weird scaling issue with ShowBox. I click on favorites with my mouse toggle and I end up in movies or some category above it. Is this specific to the FireTV? My FireStick doesn’t have this issue. ShowBox is one of my favorite apps and any help would be appreciated.


I tried the first way to downoad as an app and it seemed frozen. I deleted it and tried the fl link but now it asks for a Filelinked code! Any help on this??


Hi John, try the tutorial above again. The links are now pointing to different file that should work.


I have repeatedly tried to download the Rapid Installer on a brand new Nvidia Shield TV box, to ultimately be able to download show box. After typing in the address/name (fl), I select download, but it keeps stating that download failed.


Danielle, my new app is coming out next week which will have the Rapid App Installer inside of it as well. I would suggest using Downloader on your shield and install with the guide above for now if you can’t get the dl download to work. I just tried the link and it is working fine for me.


When Im watching something on Showbox, after a few minutes the show/movies pauses and then it starts streaming on Kodi…how do I fix this?

What a steaming pile of worthless garbage. Followed all instructions including mousetoggle – still just sits there eating memory.


Paul, curious to hear what device you are running this on? It works great on my 2nd Generation Firestick which is near the lowest rung when it comes to power. If using it on 1st Gen Firestick, that is your problem. Not much works on that one anymore.


Ill be watching something on showbox then a message pops out saying..
Open showbox with: Kodi
[Just once] [Always]
or other app: VLC player or YES player
What do I select??
