Do you allow to install a third party apk file?

Do you allow to install a third party .apk file? And how would someone do that?

Re: Do you allow to install a third party apk file?

Apk files are for the Android operating system.  Roku's operating system is a highly customized version of Android and cannot use standard apk files.

You misspoke - you meant a highly customized version of Linux (as is Android for that matter).
