After launching their TV Tuner for Android, it was quickly discovered that the software actually required users to side-load an APK which of course meant allowing installs of software from unknown sources. It’s been a little over a month and DLink has advised that last week their Dlink TV Tuner app on Google Play has been updated to now be compatible with Lollipop and it’s now completely hosted on Google Play.
There’s no changelog listed on Google Play – that’s naughty DLink – but the changes are for the better. We’ve tested the app and it’s definitely working on the Nexus 6 and the LG G3 on Lollipop, so we can confirm that. We can also confirm that with ‘Allow installs from unknown sources’ unticked you can definitely install the app and aren’t prompted to install anything else.
So far there’s only been 10-50 installs of the DLink app, meaning there hasn’t been a great amount of installs so far. We’ve been holding off on our review till the app was fully hosted on Google Play, now that’s in place the review will be up imminently.
