    I'm curious as to what apps people have installed on their Nexus Player. Here is my list:

    Simple TV Launcher (I prefer it over ChainFire's)
    XBMC
    Yahoo Mail
    HBO Go
    Droid TV Primetime
    Netflix
    Google Play Store
    ES File Explorer
    Now Browser (Material) Extended

    *All apps except for Netflix were sideloaded

    I highly recommend getting a bluetooth mouse and bluetooth keyboard!

    What is "TV Portal?" I looked in the Play Store, but couldn't find it. Would you please post the link for it?

    I have the following (note I have a mouse and use phone with remote app for entering text when needed);

    Kodi RC3 main addons are ICE films, iStream, and Yify for movies and TV shows
    Gmail
    Chrome
    Google Drive
    Calendar
    soundcloud
    Archos Video
    BBC News (for reading news)
    ES File Explorer
    IMDB for movie reviews
    Speed checker.eu for testing wifi speed
    SPB TV
    LiveNow!TV
    Advanced Task Manager cleaning memory
    showbox
    popcorntime
    Rotation locker (if app does not go into landscape) I use on some Canadian newspaper apps
    eBay
    Clean Master (requires rotate locker), but be real careful if you install this, I cleaned up my junk files and ended up having issues, had to reinstall Kodi, and the best is my recommended items on the home panel do not show anymore, which I like, but will probably have to do a factory reset one day.

    I will probably remove a lot of these apps (once I do a factory reset) but just playing around to see what works and what doesn`t.

    I have posted this before but for those who haven`t seen it a link to a more comprehensive list of apps by the community at XDA

    Chrome browser works for you? When I tried it it would open up in the middle of the tv display instead of the entire display like Now Browser. I tried both the latest Chrome apk and the beta version... no luck.

    It does with a caveat, usually when you first install it and open it, a white screen opens and then very quickly turns black. I clicked a few times in the lower right corner of what was the white box that became black and it then took me to chrome. Once you do this once, each time you open chrome it goes straight to the browser.

    For most sideloaded apps, including FX Now, you need a USB mouse.

    How'd you get the Time Warner cable app to work? I've tried several versions and none work.

    I would also like to know if and how you got Spotify working? I got Spotify premium once casting was enabled, but casting is only supported on ChromeCast, not on the Nexus Player.

    If you don't mind me inquiring... which APK did you sideload to get Time Warner Cable TV working?

    I sideloaded (MYTWC_v5.13.29) and (mytwc.resource.downloader) but I was unable to get them working.

    For Spotify to work, there's a 3rd party app in the store called Emma. Works great. You just have to manual refresh if you add songs to play lists.
