DTVS-SMART1 / DefaultApps application - Revised (12 September 2017)
« Last post by admin on June 01, 2017, 10:43:48 am »
The DefaultApps application supplied on the DTVS-Smart1 allows installation of some applications that are not installed with the firmware. These applications are either optional or upgrades of existing applications. Recently we have discovered that the hosting site for these applications has been changed and the application has lost access to the content.

We have a revised application called Smart1Apps that will allow similar functionality to the original DefaultApps application. The new application can be downloaded and installed using the APKInstaller application. Link to the new application is:

http://www.dtvs.co.nz/download/dtvssmart1/software/Smart1Apps.apk

For those who want to keep a copy of the applications, we have also made a copy of the applications which can now be downloaded directly from our website. The applications can be accessed via the
following link:
