Make an App Run at Startup on Firestick

If you use your Firestick or Android TV and decide to just only use Kodi, then you don’t need the home screen at all. In this case it’s better if you autostart Kodi Fire Stick immediately after you turn on your Firestick or Android TV.

You can use the Launch on Boot app to make an app startup run on Firestick. By using this app, you will be able to choose an app to launch directly when you start or wake your Firestick. Launch on Boot is very easy to use and it works perfectly.
