Deployed Sample App: Where is it?

I setup my Eclipse environment, created some of the Fire TV sample apps (SampleGame, UIWidgetSample). I installed them with ADB: [b]C:\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140321\sdk\platform-tools>adb install C:\UIWidgetsSample.apk 1344 KB/s (4399993 bytes in 3.195s) pkg: /data/local/tmp/UIWidgetsSample.apk Success[/b] Now... where did the apps go? Neither of them show up in any list on the Fire TV UI. I followed the provided steps; is there an additional "trick" to having the apps appear?

The apps show up in the list when you got to [b]Settings > Apps[/b] This allows you to bring up a screen where you can launch the app. For some reason, I was unable to find this page earlier: https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/asb/app-install.html

Sideloaded apps do not appear in the launcher. To run your app, use the following steps: From the main screen, select Settings > Applications. Select your app. Select Launch application. To send a launch intent to your app on the Amazon Fire TV device, use this command, where com.amazon.sample.helloworld is the package name of your app, and MainActivity is the name of your app's primary activity. adb shell am start -n com.amazon.sample.helloworld/.MainActivity Please refer below link for details. https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/asb/app-install.html
