How to Search for Content on Your Firestick

The excellent thing about Firestick is that it gives your TV internet capabilities. Of course, there are new TVs that are called “smart,” which already come with this feature. On the downside, Smart TVs are expensive. With your Firestick, you don’t need to spend a lot of money so you can power-up your TV with internet capabilities.

Connecting your TV to the Internet opens up huge possibilities. After all, they don’t call the Internet the information superhighway for nothing. With a built-in browser of the Firestick, you can already access a vast amount of information. However, you can still expand your access many times over with an excellent app.

What is FilePursuit?

If you want to search for content on your Firestick, then you will like this one. FilePursuit is a content indexer that is specialized for the Firestick environment. It works like Google and any other search engine in a way that it helps you get a better sense and access to the huge amount of content available on the web.

Since FilePursuit indexes mostly media type of files, it will catch anything media related such as eBooks, MP3s, and videos to name a few examples. Another enticing benefit of FilePursuit is that it focuses on indexing web servers that are known as “open servers.” These are types of servers that anyone can freely access without the need for passwords or any other restrictions.

FilePursuit also boasts a clean and intuitive layout. Everything you need will be in the main dashboard. While FilePursuit has plenty of options, this article will highlight some of the crucial ones.

For example, FilePursuit has a Search function, which greatly enhances and smoothens the user experience. There’s also a section known as “Discover,” which you can use to explore gazillions of files. The app also has a “Submit” button, for anyone who wants to contribute in case they find an open server that is not yet listed on FilePursuit’s index.

There’s also a “Save” section that allows for quick and easy access of your favorite servers. This is a big help in a Firestick environment in which moving around is not that easy compared to a desktop or smartphone. The section “Download” is where you can download files for offline viewing. Another benefit of FilePursuit’s Download section is that you can easily change the save location, which is something that should be standard in apps.

Now that you know some of the many benefits of FilePursuit, you probably want to install it. Below are the basic steps to follow.
