Below we highlight five such fun apps for the Kindle Fire and since the tablet is an Android device all the apps below are Android apps from the Amazon Android store.
There won’t be much that you can’t get or add to your Kindle Fire, everything from music to games and all else in between is available from what we can tell. Share your favorite apps by letting us know your personal top five below in the comment area.
One of the most popular apps for the iPad is Pandora. Guess which device next will become a BIG proponent of the music streaming service? Correct. The Kindle Fire from Amazon. With a built-in MP3 player and the ability to listen to music on the go, Pandora is prime for the taking when it comes to music streaming on your Kindle Fire. Download this free app and carry a library of music as big as Donald Trump’s ego.
Although many unsubscribed from Netflix after a recent outrage over increased fees, it’s still the service to beat when it comes to movie streaming. The full color screen of the Kindle Fire was made with videos and movies in mind, not too mention it’s the perfect size for portable movie watching. With that in mind, Netflix has a free Kindle Fire app which will enable you to view your chosen flicks on the Amazon tablet.
3. Words With Friends
This game which I believe started on Facebook has become incredibly popular with millions of users playing and sharing words. What fun. Well as a new Kindle Fire owner you can play Words with Friends on a 7 inch screen versus the smaller iPhone screen. This game app is free.
4. Hulu Plus
The popular movie streaming service also has a PRO version which is called Hulu Plus and you can now experience movies and TV shows on your Kindle Fire with this app. You still have to pay for the monthly Hulu Plus service, but the app itself is free. This app is great for those long wait times at the DMV, your doctors office, school detention, etc.
This free app allows you to view PDF docs with ease, even make annotations. The app provides an enhanced experience for small screens, the zooming in on your PDF docs and also sharing via email attachments. Perfect app for business professionals and web writers.
All of these can be found via a simple search on the Amazon app store or via your Kindle Fire device itself. All are free and easy to download and use right away. Hope you found a fun app or two for your Kindle Fire and feel free to tell us below in the comment area – which one app should we have mentioned on our list?
