Air-Share file transfers
Air-Launch direct sideloading onto Android TV

I have searched for ways to sideload apps onto my Android TV more efficiently than copying the apks via the Cloud. I have now found Air-Share which can transfer any type of file between two Android devices on the same LAN. It includes Air-Launch, which can launch an app (short-press) on the remote device, and directly sideload (long-press) an app.

Before I have been using my Android Tablet to create the backed-up apks. What is especially clever with Air-Launch is that it handles the apps directly as installed without any a go-between.

Air-Launch opens a list of installed apps on the remote device, and you either short-press to launch it, or long-press to sideload it onto the device you are using.

Air-Share can also cast multi-media files to a web browser on a remote device.


Air-Share on TV and Tablet

I have tried other apps for direct transfer from the Tablet to the TV: AirDroid has been my my preferred choice, at least until now. PushBullet works fine sometimes, but unfortunately not always. FastFileTransfer more often than not stops after about 97% of the apks are copied onto the TV.
