  • Few Bug fixes.


1. ShowBox APK says “Install Failed Invalid APK”

Ans. This has most often been reported of BlueStacks. Those who have installed the emulator in recent times are less likely to have a problem. One thing you can try is reinstalling BlueStacks. It takes some time, but it is worth the wait. Some have even suggested getting a rooted version on BlueStacks, but we’re not sure on its efficacy.

2. How do I get the latest ShowBox APK?

Ans.If you have ShowBox already installed, the app prompts when there is a new version available to download. However, if you’re new to the app, use the links provided above to get the latest ShowBox apk files, or older versions if you prefer.

3. Why did the size on the apk increase so rapidly?

Ans. The app structure was revised a few times over the past few months to optimise user experience and to include new features. This leads to a bigger apk size. Also, there could be security concerns which could have caused this spurt in size, which is not totally unheard of in this genre. Rest assured, the app is safe and useful just as it was earlier.

4. Can I remove the ads from ShowBox?

Ans. They’re really bothersome.Well you could look for a ShowBox Mod APK which has the ad mechanisms disabled. Otherwise, if you know your way around applications like APK Studio, there is a detailed method for you. Check out this tutorial on removing ads from ShowBox.

5. Why can’t I uninstall ShowBox APK?

Ans. A lot of people who try uninstalling the app find themselves unable to access the option. The problem inadvertently turns out to be giving the app administrative privileges. To revoke them, Go to Apps in your Settings menu, and tap the cog to access the configuration menu. You can disable administration privileges to the app from here, and have the app uninstalled in no time.

6. Why are my movies not loading/lagging?

A lot of links to movies can be to bad prints, like a Cam print. Otherwise, the link could be taking time to resolve. Please ensure you have sufficient RAM on your device, or the movie will take more and more time. Another possible solution could be waiting a few days for the movie to be uploaded in a better print. If the movie plays well in others devices but not in yours, you might try reinstalling the app, or cleaning junk from your device.

7. The ShowBox APK file is too big in size. Any solution?

Ans. The big size of the apk file is well justified because the amount of free movies and TV shows you get to watch excuses the inconvenience. But if the size is what is preventing you from getting the ShowBox app, you can look into getting the ShowBox Lite Mod apk file, which is 20 MB smaller in size. The app works just as good as the original ShowBox, and is also free like it.

8. The apk file won’t download

Ans. If you’re facing a problem with downloading the apk file, use this link to get ShowBox latest apk.

9. What permissions are needed for ShowBox app to run and why?

Ans. Here is a list of permissions and what they might help the app in.

Read Phone Status and Identity: This helps the app maintain an account-like interface which saves your bookmarks, and keeps track of what you have watched so it is easier to resume later.

Location: This helps the app stream content faster as well as keep an idea about where the app is being used so it can upload content most people can enjoy.

SD Card access: This helps in downloading content and buffering movies to your device. The buffered content is lodged temporarily in the memory.

Network Access: It prevents your phone from streaming Torrent links if they are blocked in your country so you don’t get into trouble. Also, network access is what enabled ShowBox APK app to access the library and stream or download movies.

Prevent phone from sleeping: This keeps your phone screen from going dark when you’re streaming a movie, so you can lay back and enjoy the entertainment you’re watching.
