Showbox App Download for Android Mobile Devices
Although Showbox was developed specifically for Android-supported devices, you won’t find it in the Google Play Store. It is a third-party app and must be sideloaded after downloading Showbox APK to your device. The procedure is similar to any hand-held smartphone or tablet with a few variations.
- To install the app on your smartphone, go to Settings > Security > Turn on “Unknown Sources.”
- Open your browser and click on the Showbox app download link.
- After downloading the app, open the file and follow the installation process.
- Once the program is installed, you should have full functionality.
Receiving an error message that says “Unfortunately, Showbox has stopped” simply requires navigating to Settings > General > Apps > Show Box > Clear data & Clear cache and restarting the app. If you receive a parse error, a message that the file is corrupt, or a message that your OS is not compatible, your device may be too old for the latest Showbox release. You can update your OS to the latest version and reinstall APK. If that doesn’t solve the problem, you can access any earlier versions of Showbox, click here to download an earlier version.
Supported devices: All smartphones and tablets with Android operating systems; BlackBerry 10, Q5, Q10, Z10, Z30, 9982, 9983, Passport, Classic, Leap, Priv, and new phones with BlackBerry OS 10.2 or later; Kindle Fire HDX, Fire HD 6, 7 and the Amazon Fire Phone are compatible with Showbox.
Pro tip: You can stream Showbox directly to your smart TV via Chromecast and sync your hand-held device to your non-Android smart TV or install directly if your TV is compatible. The steps are as follows:
- Download and install LocalCast from the Google Play Store on your TV
- Select “video” in the “more options” part of the resolution selection taskbar
- Select “other player” in the VLC drop-down menu
- Select “play video” and open with LocalCast
