Q: How to install a third-party app to the X7/X5III/X7MKII?

A: The
X7/X5III/X7MKII is based on the open-source Android system, and may be used in much the same way as an Android smart phone. It must be noted however that if you've switched the X7/X5III/X7MKII from Android mode to Pure Music mode, all operation will be limited to within the FiiO Music app, so you won't be able to use any other app or access the Android home screen. But they will be accessible again once you go back to Android mode.

In Android mode, there are 4 methods to install apps:

A. Obtaining and installing apps from the "FiiO Marketplace" .
Respecting users' different usage needs, FiiO has collected popular music and utility apps in use worldwide, tested them for compatibility with the
X7/X5III/X7MKII and put them in the "FiiO Marketplace" shortcut on the X5's android home screen.  You may choose and install apps from this site easily, with ease of mind.
Step-by-step:
1. Pull down the settings menu from the upper right of the screen, click on the Wi-Fi icon to turn on the
X7/X5III/X7MKII 's WiFi, and hold the icon to enter the Wi-Fi menu and choose and connect to an available WiFi network;
2. Go to the home screen and click on "FiiO Marketplace".
3. Browse the list for an app you would like to install and click its icon—the app will start downloading in the background;
4. After downloading is complete, pull down the notifications page from the upper left of the screen and click on the "Download complete" notification.  The app installation dialog will appear and you may click "Install" to install the app;
5. After installation, the app will appear in the
X7/X5III/X7MKII 's app drawer, and you may click it to run it.
(note: the X5 can queue multiple app downloads.)

B. Downloading apps from Google Play Store
Step-by-step:
1. Pull down the settings menu from the upper right of the screen, click on the Wi-Fi icon to turn on the
X7/X5III/X7MKII 's WiFi, and hold the icon to enter the Wi-Fi menu and choose and connect to an available WiFi network;
2. Go to the app drawer and click on "Play Store".
3. Follow the prompts to sign in with a Google account or sign up for one.
4. Browse the list or search for an app you wish to install, click on it and then click the "Install" button.
5. The app will be installed in the background. And after installation, it will appear in the
X7/X5III/X7MKII 's app drawer, and you may click it to run it.

C. Browsing the web to download apps directly from the developer's website or third party app markets
Step-by-step:
1. Pull down the settings menu from the upper right of the screen, click on the Wi-Fi icon to turn on the
X7/X5III/X7MKII 's WiFi, and hold the icon to enter the Wi-Fi menu and choose and connect to an available WiFi network;
2. Click on the browser on the
X7/X5III/X7MKII home screen;
3. Go to the official homepage of the app you want to download and click the download link for the app's apk.  The apk will download in the background.
4. After downloading is complete, pull down the notifications page from the upper left of the screen and click on the "Download complete" notification.  The app installation dialog will appear and you may click "Install" to install the app;
5. After installation, the app will appear in the
X7/X5III/X7MKII 's app drawer, and you may click it to run it.

D.  Downloading apps to the computer and copying to the
X7/X5III/X7MKII
Step-by-step:
1. Using your computer, go to the official homepage of the app you want to download and click on the download link for the app's apk.  
2. Connect the
X7/X5III/X7MKII to the computer using the provided USB cable;  pull down the status menu from the upper left of the screen, tap on "USB connected" and click "Turn on USB storage" to mount the X7/X5III/X7MKII 's drives on the computer;
3. Copy the downloaded apk to a location on the
X7/X5III/X7MKII 's internal storageor external SD card.  Eject the X7/X5III/X7MKII on the computer's operating system and then disconnect the X7/X5III/X7MKII physically from the computer;
4. From the
X7/X5III/X7MKII 's home screen, click on the folder icon to start the file explorer;
5. Browse to the location where you copied the apk to and click on it.  The app installation dialog will appear and you may click "Install" to install the app;
6. After installation, the app will appear in the
X7/X5III/X7MKII 's app drawer, and you may click it to run it.

We hope the above guide will help you install the apps you need on the
X7/X5III/X7MKII and make full use of the player.

You can download V share app store to get third-party apps on your X5 third gen. Vshare is a great source for the third-party applications. You can download all latest apps and tweaks from this app store.

How much space is available for additional applications?

I.E. Internal Storage.
The X7 was updated with.
'5. Expanded the internal storage space from 1 GB to 2 GB;'
However that required a firmware re-flash.

How much space is available with the current firmware on X5 III ?
