    Default HELP: Cannot Install 3rd Party Apps/APKs!

    Hey everyone, I purchased 2 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (Both 2014 editions) for my parents for XMAS. Everytime I go to install a third-party app off of sites LIKE Aptoide, I get to the INSTALL screen, but cannot install the app. I personally own a Note 2 and have owned other Android devices before where all you have to do is check the 'Unknown Sources' box in settings and everything works fine. Can anyone help with this? Also, ROOTING is not really an option here.

    Welcome to AC
    I assume you already have the "unknown sources" box checked, correct?

    Do you get any kind of error screen? I have mine and I can install 3rd party APKs without issue, as long, of course, as the APK is the right version for the tablet.

    No error screen at all. I just get to the screen in the image and cannot click "NEXT or INSTALL." The image is from one of the Note 10.1 2014s and is running Jelly Bean 4.3. I was able to install the same 3rd party app on my Note 2 with no issues. I cannot install the "Aptoide" apk either. Gives me the same problem. And yes I do have the the "unknown sources" box checked.

    I figured it out. My father had installed a blue light filter and it was interfering with the touch response...

    I never would have guessed that. Glad you got it figured out

    Interestingly, the first blue light filter app I looked at had just brought out an update to turn off the filter when installing 3rd party apps, so presumably you're not the only person to have spotted this.

    I can NOT believe that is the case. I was like: "c'mon dude, are you sane? how can an app enable you to do that. There must be a catch."
    Than i uninstalled my lastly installed app and voila, it worked.
    Thanx a million friend, I was busting my head real hard...

    btw, app that caused me that same very problem was: Navigation layer.
    Cheers

    Thank you, same issue here. This was very helpfull. Deactivating the bluelight filter was enough to get things going again.
