250+ Best Kindle Fire and Fire HD Apps for The New Kindle Fire Owner

by Tom and Jenna Edwards

The Story Behind the Story!

If you’ve yet to buy a tablet computer you might see them as an extravagance, but once you get hold of one you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it.

The Kindle has come a long way since its inception as a new device for reading eBooks. Today the Kindle Fire (and Fire HD) can do so much more. The Kindle Fire is a fully fledged tablet that some people claim is equal to, if not better than, the Apple iPad.

Why We Love the Kindle Fire.

Put simply, the difference between a Kindle eReader and the new Kindle Fire is versatility. As well as having a mini handheld computer at your fingertips, the Kindle Fire has access to thousands of applications (apps) that allow the device to perform all kinds of tasks and functions, while also delivering entertainment that was unthinkable in previous versions of the Kindle.

What Are Apps?


Apps are small pieces of software that you download direct to your device through the Kindle Appstore. An app adds a particular function to your Kindle – an app can allow you to run all your finances from your Kindle or allow you to download and read magazines or newspapers. Maybe you want to access movies, learn how to take better photographs, make your own music or simply play games for fun? Whatever you are looking to do, you can be pretty sure there’s an app to get you started!

How Do You Choose the Right Apps?

This is the question we asked ourselves when we started writing this book. Sure, you can search the web to find out if an app is any good, there are hundreds of reviews and opinions for most apps, but that takes a lot of time, even when you know which app you’re interested in. With so many apps in each category, where do you even begin your search? In Amazon’s Appstore? If you take a quick look in the apps category for games – there are over 15,000 apps to choose from in this single category alone… where on earth should you start?

How Did We Choose the Best Apps?

We started by downloading hundreds and hundreds of apps that performed the kinds of activities that we thought might benefit others. Apps that we liked, apps our friends liked, apps with great customer reviews and apps we’d never heard of but we thought looked interesting. In the end we ended up with more than 250 great apps that were worth telling people about – I can’t begin to tell you how many hundreds of hours we spent using and assessing these apps, but the upshot is, we believe we ended up with a definitive list of the best apps available.

How Will This Book Benefit You?

If you have a new Kindle Fire or Kindle fire HD, or you’re just new to the world of apps, our book is a great place to start. Even if you’ve had your Kindle Fire for a while you’ll find lots of new apps that you didn’t know about. For sure, with so many apps reviewed and so many categories covered you’ll discover that we have something for everyone in the most comprehensive eBook of its kind.

Think of this book as your best friend for apps! We’ll give you personal recommendations so that you never waste a moment wondering if any given app is right for you. And just like a good friend you can keep coming back for advice. We will be updating our book on a regular basis with new apps and better apps and these updates will be free for you as a customer.

While it’s true you can find many great apps without buying our book we are certain that, if you do decide to buy it, you will find a ton of apps that you would never have considered and it will save you hours of time.
