installing non-oculus APK request Gear VR

When downloading third party apps such as from homecinema.mobi upon trying to install from the download folder I am prompted:

"To open this application,insert your device into your Gear VR"

I tried this but to no avail. Why is Oculus assuming every APK has to do with Gear VR? How does one get around this annoyance?

If it's asking to be inserted into the gear vr then it's likely created for the gear vr and uses the oculus libraries. Apps built for cardboard or other libraries besides Oculus do not bring up this alert.
