OK, it took a little bit longer than I thought it would….
I had previously told you about how you could read this blog on your Kindle Fire via the Pulse app, as Amazon will not allow blog subscriptions on the Kindle Fire as they would with most other Kindles. While that works / worked for many of you, others found it to be a pain in the neck due to various hiccups. After numerous emails and comments received from you, I did come up with a new solution…
There is a free app in the Amazon App store you can now download to your Fire. To check it out and download it (for free, of course), just click here or type in http://amzn.to/freefireapp into your computer’s web browser.
I’m calling this version 1.0 of the app, as I have various enhancements written down I need to forward to the programmers (I know you are reading this, so get ready to receive the list!).
So, what do you get with the free app? It’s pretty straight-forward, and there are not a lot of whistles and bells: if I post a new free book or Kindle tip to the blog, the app will automatically update and you can read it right there. If I have a “click here” link in the blog post for you to download a free book, you can click on the “click here” with your Kindle Fire and it will open up a new page –very similar to a computer’s web browser – for you to download the book to your Kindle Fire. You can also start shopping for other material from the Amazon website.
Please note this free app is not just limited to the Kindle Fire, but will also work with any Android-based system such as your DROID phones or other Droid-enabled tablet computers.
So, if you have a Kindle Fire, why not give this app a test drive? After all, it is free – of you like it, great, I would appreciate a favorable review on the app’s page on the Amazon website. If it’s not for you (after all, it is free) it won’t cost you anything and you can quickly delete it from your Kindle Fire. Just click here or type in http://amzn.to/freefireapp into your computer’s web browser.
