Puffin browser allows you to use the remote as a mouse if anyone is interested.

I think a single row of apps is one of the Shield Experience 7 "enhancements". It's not getting a lot of love.

How is showbox working on Android TV these days with the remote (not game controler)? Was poor in comparison to Terrarium TV the last time I checked. But it may be something I look at again now.

Is the controller still making a few quid on Adverts etc?


I'm still wavering at buying a Shield, even at this cheap price - have most apps I use on the TV, and I never play games.


If I was guaranteed a few quid back from selling the controller, I might be pushed over the line

There is also a new Shield TV app on iOS and android that works as a touch pad/ keyboard/remote. Although strangely the keyboard has no colon on it so it’s a bit useless for typing URLs. Needs experience 7.1 to work.


Just given this a quick test drive, works really well, I've deleted cetusplay in favour of it. When I hit the keyboard icon, it brings up Gboard on my phone, colon and all. What happens when you select the keyboard?

iOS version has a keyboard with no colon. Not mad about any of the third party keyboards.

sorry if going off track, i'm looking for a 4k media player, primarily for streaming netflix and amazon prime, i've already got the chromecast original.

I'm looking for a player that does hdr, dolby vision, dolby atmos, etc, i was looking at the shield and the apple tv 4k because apple sell films in 4k for alot cheaper than 4k blu ray and google play doesnt even sell 4k, i dont think the chromecast ultra does atmos.

I;
'm not interested in gaming, would the shield be a better choice over the apple tv?

Ok I found them in gallery which I suppose is the obvious place for them. Now does anyone know how I can create a shortcut to gallery on the home screen
