Thanks!
by: Deb

You've helped me so much and was afraid I couldn't find you. I've had used Fires and they haven't done well for me. Last chance but bought a new 8 and gotta figure it out and I know you'll have the info I need. Thanks so much!! Can I get to my old level on Candy Crush Soda with my new Fire or I have to start over? I don't want to play on Facebook. Thanks and I've got to start with you on my new Fire.


----------


Hi Deb,

If the game app uses Amazon's game tracking system then you might be able to login and start where you left off. However, I don't know if Candy Crush Soda uses that or not. You'll just have to try it and see.

Good luck and thanks for your comment!

Kindle fire various models
by: John Gaunt-Wilkinson

Your site is much appreciated and well done.

I wish someone would produce a table showing the comparative features of each version of kindle fire.

Also I think Amazon could make it more clear what version they are supplying and provide more official instructions on the device,on the internet and in print(an introductory booklet?). I say this because more and more older people want to use this kind of device and we do not find IT easy.....I am 77.

Best wishes, John


-----------------

Hi John,

Your wish is my command! I put together a comparison chart of all the Kindle Fire tablets!!

I hope it is what you were asking for.

Thanks for the great idea! :)

pushing and HOLDING the buttons
by: Grassy

I spent ages trying to get Spanish and French to display on my Kindle (Fire, 7", 5th Gen). I loaded the keyboards and language settings. Nothing.

Then, I read on your site here that you have to push and hold to get other choices! OMG. Now I have access to ¿ and ¡ and ñ and ç and ¢ --- because for some reason people in the USA don't ever type my 2¢ (my $0.02---ha ha ha).

Oh, and fractions, too! :-) Yes, yes, yes, I sure love my Kindle Fire!

T'anx!

This is an awesome site Rachel. I have a 1st Gen Kindle and my free book reading app would no longer let me download the books to it. I could not sync either so it was time to upgrade. I bought a used 2nd gen and it works great. I wanted to compare Models and features so the pics and info really helped my research. I love my Kindle Fire HD.

Flow Free was my undoing
by: Bob Abernethy

Back in 2014, my wife purchased a Kindle Fire 8.9 HD (254 ppi). I believe she purchased it to replace or complement her Kindle Touch, I'm not sure which. When the new tablet arrived, she unboxed it, charged it and began to try to use it. This new Fire HD is quite a different animal than the Touch.

Being the wordsmith that she is, she had used the Touch to play word games and read books. Evidently, a particular word game she played on her Touch is not available for the Fire; since we both have spent a lot of effort trying to find it. Due to this, she put her new Fire aside.

Of course I saw she wasn't using her new tablet, so I decided I would give it a go. I began by playing Mahjong on it. Playing the free version became so addictive that I asked her to purchase the "pay-to-play" version. And so it goes, I played Mahjong Dix HD until it was beginning to become boring. Even though I am not a gamer, I needed a different challenge. I don't remember the specifics now, but about this time Flow Free was presented to me.

That's the backstory, now on to an explanation of the title. I showed Flow Free to my wife, she played it and liked it so well that we were trying to share her new Fire HD. Basically this left me without anything to play Flow Free and Mahjong on. Oh, whoa is me, what's a fellow going to do 😥.

I began looking at the various 2015 Fire models, reading many critiques, I found that one of the recurring complaints was the poor screen clarity, i.e., low ppi. This led me to purchase a refurbished 3rd generation Fire 8.9 HDX that has screen clarity that astonished me; at 339 ppi, it is quite a bit better than my wife's HD. Lastly, a refurbished tablet has the same warranty as a new one and cost quite a bit less.

Finally, just let me say, I love my Fire; even more since I found this website.

Bob

----------

What a great experience, Bob, thanks for sharing your story with us!

Yep, games can be quite addictive and are one of my favorite things about my Kindle Fire. I also have the 2013 Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" and it's my favorite of all the models. :)

Enjoy!

I love you LOL (Seriously)

I have been an apple user the better part of my life, but I received a kindle as a gift for Christmas when I just couldn't get comfy reading on an iPad. It felt so new when I took it from the box. I was frustrated and hadn't even turned it on yet! I immediately got online and tried to find something to explain this device to me. Not just basic functions, but the tips and tricks a user needs to feel comfortable with a device. Thank you for loving you Kindle enough to share. I definitely love mine now, too!

We had the same issue of the Kindle Fire HD not being able to boot up. It remained dark but we could "hear" it. We googled the problem, your site popped up and we followed your advice to hold the power button down for at least 20 seconds. Presto bingo it booted up properly.

After 30 years of using and providing customer support for Windows computing, I was stumped when my wife brought home the first Kindle Fire HD.
Rachel, I was ready to brush it off as some joke - until I found your LoveMyFire website and discovered what joy was hidden inside that wizard of a tablet.
Thank you so much for this service. I come back time and again when I get "stuck" and your site always has the most useful solutions for getting the most out of our Fire. Amazon owes you a lot!

Solutions Worked!
by: Gayla

I found this wonderful site a few months ago when I believed my Kindle had died. I was literally a hot mess,dreading a call to Amazon support while frantically searching for a solution. Thankfully Goggle came through!!

I was beyond grateful and highly skeptical that the fix was so simple and fast!! Twenty seconds later I was back in business and still blown away that it was so easy!

Last night I was hoping to start a new book and page 3 was blank...so we're others. I checked other books in my library and random pages were missing. I hopped online and read horror stories about having to re-download all affected books. I have up and went to sleep thinking it might be better to suck it up and upgrade.

Today I remembered how you saved the day awhile back and tried the same fix (holding the power button down for 20 seconds). Saved again!! Thank you so much for creating a space for support and information for all of us who love our Kindles!!

Fire 10
by: AZ Megan

I am so pleased with the Amazon customer support. I had a faulty, new Fire 10 that had internal issues and Amazon made it right by sending me a replacement within two days. It was a breeze to set up with no problems!! YAY!! Amazon is awesome and the new Kindle Fire 10 is wonderful!! I love the larger screen size and all the things my Kindle Fire HDX has but the Fire 10 has a forward camera which is icing on top! Thanks Amazon for this great Tablet!

Awesome site!
by: Malcolm Glass

Thank you so much for all the hard work I'm sure it took to provide all of this invaluable information. I had been looking for a case for my Kindle. Well, I bought it used and thought I had an HDX 7. Had to return the case I bought. Your site quickly revealed my error: I have a 2012 HD 7! The photos and very detailed descriptions made it very easy to tell which Kindle I have. So the right case for it will soon be on the way.

With that problem solved, I began to look around your site to see what else would be interesting and helpful. And there is certainly a wealth of useful information! I've been learning to use the Kindle (and yes, I do love this tablet, too) by intuitive navigation and some notes on the 'net. But right here I have access to a lot of guidance in using this little jewel. I am very thankful that I found your site and grateful to you for putting all this together. I can't wait to come back to learn a lot more about using my Kindle.

This Website Rocks!
by: Anonymous

Rachel, you have my deepest appreciation! I just unpacked my KF a few hours ago. Imagine my disappointment in finding out my one real game obsession couldn't be acquired from Amazon Apps -- and then also being blocked from accessing Google Play via the browser! Of course I immediately did a Google search for a work-around ... found your incredibly helpful website with just the info I needed. Eureka! I followed your very simple, clear instructions. (The only hiccup: It took me a minute to realize I needed Full/Desktop View to have Google Play actually display.) In about 5 minutes I was playing my game on my KF! Of course, it's almost too big on my KF and I wish I could minimize it slightly but yay! I have never solved a tech/side-loading problem so fast. Thanks again for your incredibly informative site. I am now in love with lovemyfire.com! 8-)

THANK GOD!
by: Angela

I am too old to admit I am addicted to few games I have on my Kindle therefore when 2 of them stopped working all of a sudden (not sure what I did)..I was ticked because that was entertainment during downtimes at my store or at night before bed. Only one app would work and the other two kept saying they couldn't connect even though there was nothing wrong with my WIFI. Anyhooooo after using way too much of my Iphones hotspot (that was the only thing they recognized with no errors)I sat down and started googling and no other blog or forum had the right answers..just the basic answers like reboot...etc. which of course I had already done. But I found your blog tonight and after reading your FAQ.....problem solved. I turned on the location option and woooohoo I was back in business. So thank you...thank you ...thank you!

Thanks, Angela, for sharing your experience! I'm so happy to hear that my FAQ had the solution to your problem and that you're able to get back to enjoying your games (that you're not addicted to). ;)

Ear buds
by: Lynk

I love watching movies from AMAZON PRIME or NETFLIX and using ear buds makes it easy to do. I hate the ones that came with my iPOD and discovered the soft, flexible ones fit better, block out external sounds better and feel more comfortable. I have purchased them on EBAY, at Walmart and on AMAZON for just a few dollars and the sound is fine. Flat, hard ones do not fit well in my ear and fall out.

by: Abi Gezunt

Several years ago i purchased the Kindle HD tablet in part because i wanted a tablet with a linux-like OS to sideload apps, in part because of all the good reviews, and in part because of your informative site. Since then, I've subscribed to your newsletter and learned a great deal more.

Today i found my Kindle unresponsive. Tried a few things and still nothing. Googled the issue and your site came up, and sure enough, the answer was within. It finally responded. It was sluggish so i also reset everything back to the defaults and all is now good.

So, bottom line, thank you for your site and all the efforts you put into it!

You Saved my Fire!
by: Anonymous

I am so thankful I found this. I just got the new Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 and was SO EXCITED to get it!! Until I found out that all of my google history of apps would not work on this tablet. I was able to find some similar apps to google, but the main purpose of getting the kindle was to do my online class work on the go in a more portable way than my large notebook laptop. However, amazon did not have my university's app in their store. I was considering returning my fire for something more compatible. I found this site, signed up for the mailers and was able to follow the directions and get the application on the first try! It was very well written and the picture examples were updated and accurate.

Thank you. This made my Kindle awesome.

I just bought a Kindle Fire 4 last week and I love it. However, I had a lot to learn. I used to use a Nook, but I really didn't like it. Everything seemed like a hassle and the books cost much more at B&N than the choices at Amazon. I googled with questions about Dropbox and chose your site. Lucky for me! Right now I am going to try to figure out how to get Google Play Store on the Kindle, but I wanted to be sure that I posted my testimonial before going any further because I've already learned so much. You are brilliant with these tablets and your explanations are easy to understand which is where it is at. If a person doesn't have good, clear communication skills then there's no point. Just wanted to say thank you for all this great information - and for free - double thanks. You are very generous with your skills and your willingness to help.

GPS
by: Anonymous

just thought you might get a kick out of my story

i went on a trip recently, and tried to use my kindle 8.9 hdx fire as a gps..

well it did not work so when i got back i contacted
the help line and told them of my problem and she passed me on to a teck and that teck in turn passed meon to another and this went on for a week, on day eight i called the corp office looking for an answer
and got transfered to 4 different people and none of them could answer my question as to why my gps on my kindle would not turn on.
they are sending me a new unit..

so now i checked with google search on the subject and what i read is the kindle does not have a gps device in it to connect to,

now do you think that after going through 8-10 teck that they would know that /???????

god help amazon on their teck support, they are going to need it

thanks

Thanks for sharing your story, Gary! Yes, that's quite funny and sad at the same time. The Amazon tech support should have been able to tell on their end that you didn't have a Kindle Fire with 4G (which is required for apps that use GPS).

I am an avid reader and your solution truly saved the day for me! For a moment I had the sinking feeling you have when you lose your wallet, especially because I am not a savvy technical type. Can't believe how simple and quickly your tip provided my desperately needed solution! Again, thank you for making solutions so easy and readily available for folks like me!

Which version of Kindle do you have
by: Anonymous

Loved your pictorial on how to tell which version of Kindle you have. Also discovered, that if you click the name of your device and then the house icon, you get a line at the top of other options. Click "More" then, "Help and Feedback", and "User's Guide". This will tell you whether or not you have a Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD, although not which year.

Kindle fixed closed captions on TV
by: Joyce - san diego

After months trying to solve problem of closed captions not working on amazon streaming on my new Vizio Tv - I found a tiny little blurp on the help pages that my tv is one of the few that won't work with amazon captions. Works with Netflix but not amazon, so my free streaming was useless. Then your website - love it - I bought the micro hdmi for my kindle fire hd 2012 generation, plugged it in and works beautifully captions and all. What a struggle these things can be, even the bluray I bought had a bad wifi signal so I could only use the tv amazon button.
Thanks so much for all your help and to everyone commenting - I learned a lot.
Question though - my kindle is horrible on hotel wifi - constant buffering while my daughter beside me watching a movie on amazon streaming with her Ipad 2 - no problems; even watched it on her iphone while my kindle couldn't go 10 seconds.
Any suggestions?

My HDX 8.9 FIXED! Thank You!
by: Jake

Took it off the charger and it DIED in 5 minutes, wouldn't re-start. After browsing you site, found the answer, the charging cord had shorted out. Toasted the charger and drained the battery. after using another charger and cord it's now working again thanks to your site (and patrons). The 2nd charger I used took quite a while to finish. Now I can just get a new charger instead of a new HDX. Did I say Thank you?

Love My Fire Magazine
by: Liz

I think it would be great to have a Kindle Fire Magazine and I wouldn't mind paying for it, within reason. Mostly everything is geared towards the iPad. I happen to prefer my Kindle. Even though I just recently became a subscriber to Love My Kindle Newsletter (like yesterday), I love it. There is so much information in it and it's written in plain, simple terms. Everything is explained and double explained. One of the best newsletters I get.

---------------

Wow, thanks Liz for the vote of confidence! That makes me feel great. :) I really do work hard to make things as simple as possible. I sometimes get a little wordy but I think it's better to have a little too much information than not enough.

I'm still considering the magazine idea, so we'll see if it works out.

Thanks again!

You saved my Kindle Fire HDX 8.9
by: Dee

Rachel, You saved me from putting my kindle in the trash and buying another brand. This is my first tablet and I am no computer geek. I stumbled across your web looking for a way to sideload a app called Tennis Channel Everywhere from any app store that carried it (Amazon does not carry it) and come to find out it is on mobile 1 and your explanations were so simple with lots of pictures. I was also wanting Flash Player and you showed how to do that. You can not imaged how helpful you have been to me. Now I really like my kindle. I want to say "Thank you" for taking the time and effort to do this web site. It has been a life saver for me.

I don't understand why, when I first started using the Tennis Channel Everywhere app, it worked great. Now, it tells me "Try Again, Authentication Failed" when I hit the live button. I use dish. I have a online ID and Password but every time I try to use it, I get this message. I delete the app and reload (from Mobile 1) and I can get on at that time but if I try again later in the day or so, I can't. I don't understand. Can you help me?

--------------

Thanks Dee for your kind words, I'm so glad my site has helped you to enjoy your Kindle Fire! :)

As for the problem you're having, I'm not sure why it is doing that. One idea is that when it's not working: close the app, see if it is still running and if so force close. Then wait a few seconds and try to open it again to see if that works. I have a tutorial on how to force close apps that are still running here:
http://www.lovemyfire.com/kindle-fire-battery.html

Scroll down to the battery saving tip on how to check for running apps.

If the app isn't still running or that doesn't work, the only other idea I have is to contact the developer/company of the app to see if they can help you with this issue.

Good luck and thanks for visiting my site!

awesome, fire info.
by: Ron

Excellent.Thank you for finally putting out tutorials in a easy non geek type way. Although this
is my 3rd kindle,(2nd fire). I'm still not very
Computer literate. The es file explorer is totally
The best file app.
An app you probably know about but was not included
is power amp. This is a music player, and my HDX has at least 3 so I really was reluctant about adding another, but this is a volume booster (that actually
works!). Plus it plays just about any type file,
of course it's not available on Amazon. You can get it on Google play or it's own site. There is also
this store called yandex you should review.
Keep up the awesome job. Ron.

Mayday needs to hire you!

Last night I spent five miserable hours with Amazon and Netgear support trying to hook up P2TV. First Amazon blamed Netgear, who blamed me for not having a 3rd computer to update the firmware, because clearly my two computers were defective, then Amazon gave a final pronouncement that my tv was the problem. They agreed to refunding my Kindle and all related purchases their techs told me I needed, including the P2TV. Imagine my surprise when I came home from work and found my husband had set it up with help from your website. Thank you so much!

Relief, at last!!!
by: Jo Pfeffer

Rachel, I can't thank you enough for your wonderful instructions on how to sideload apps! Following your instructions tonight, I was able to get everything loaded up and running, and now have a Kindle Fire that that acts like an Android tablet -- HURRAY!!!

I've also got a folder with lovely pictures I've collected over the years, and now I'm set up to rotate pictures now.

Question: Is there a way to get the Kindle Fire so that it opens up with ADW Launcher, instead of that d@mned carousel? I would really prefer that, but if there's no option but to tap on Launcher as soon as I power up, I guess I'll have to deal with it.

Again, MANY THANKS for your website! It's been such a huge relief to get some of the things modified on my Kindle, and I owe it all to your help!!! *grin*


-----------------

You're very welcome, Jo, so glad I could help! As for opening the launcher you can tap and hold on it to save it to your favorites, that way you can have easy access to it. Other than that tip, there's not a way to automatically have it open up.

Thanks!

You (and your readers) have greatly improved my home life. Gave Hubby a new KindleFire HD8.5 for Father's Day. His frustration level has been growing since. I've been looking for solutions to his being unable to view photos in Twitter. I came across your page and Voila! Success! Finally, a simple settings change and all is well. Seems that is should be easier to find answers to obvious questions more easily. Thanks for your dedication to the non-techies among us.

------------------

You're very welcome, Sue! It definitely should be easier to get answers, but thankfully this website community of Kindle Fire owners continues to grow as we help each other learn and enjoy using our tablets! Thanks for your comment, I'm glad my site has helped you find a solution to your problem.

I love my Kindle Fire! It's the best! Before I got it, I just wasn't sure. I looked at every page about it and almost all of them just said "Yeah it's alright" or just explained a little. But this site explains so much! Once I finished reading this page, I knew for sure that I was going to buy a Kindle Fire. Thanks so much!♥

Wow, thanks Julie! I'm so glad you found my site and that it helped you with your decision to buy a Kindle Fire.

Now you love one too! This is so much fun. :)

Reset my Kindle Fire HD
by: Sonya

Just wanted to say thank you so much for your valuable information!! When I get your emails if I find it particularly helpful, I save it to a folder on my computer for future use. Boy did it come in handy today. Last night my Kindle Fire HD seemed to "die". It would not do anything. I charged it overnight, still nothing. I knew in one of your columns you had talked about doing a reset on the Kindle fire. I went to the folder, there was the article, followed your directions and it worked PERFECTLY!! My Kindle is working fine. Thank you so much. Love your articles!!

New Kindle Fire User
by: Sue C ... London, UK

Firstly, I would like to say how informative & fun I am finding your site.

I was unsure why my husband gave me the kindle fire, as I thought my original kindle met all my needs ... but now I realise there is scope for more enjoyment.

This is my first day, and already I am showing my ignorance. I have brought mine into work, not thinking about Wi-Fi. Unfortunately I can only access items on my kindle device. There are no Wi-Fi hook-ups near me. This means I can only browse through my Stephen King book, or look at recipes from the Hairy Bikers!

Reading through your web pages have given me the boost to try out all my new Kindle Fire can offer. Thank you.

Great information! Can the Fire HD 7 record?

Hi Rachel,

I am brand new and you have already helped me in ordering just what I need. You say things in such a clear and sensible manner.

Also wonder how one would choose a head set?

Thanks so much for having this site.

For the real newbies trying to understand wireless
by: sandi

I have to admit that I haven't got the Kindle Fire, yet. But so far I have the older kindle which is no "fire". (If you know what I mean.)

But here's what is keeping me in a tail spin. I really don't understand how the wireless feature works. I have a desktop but it doesn't have a wireless connection because I have sensitive data on it.

I also have a cell phone android. Not sure if this would be helpful in working with a kindle fire.

Soon I expect to get a lap top.

Based on the above, can you tell me how the wireless works? My husband has a Barnes & Noble reader but he has to use it outside the home to get a wireless connection.

Wireless it confusing to me as a new comer to tech. I read your page about wireless but I'm still confused on how it works.

Can you do a page or post more in detail how your wireless setup looks and recommendations.

Thanks so much.
I love your site.

------------------------------

Hi Sandi, thanks for your question. Wi-fi is an Internet signal that is being broadcast from a router. You can easily buy and setup a router that will broadcast your Internet that you are using at home. It wouldn't be connected to your computer, so you wouldn't have to worry about security issues for your PC.

To do this, you would need to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP, the people you pay for Internet at home) to find out which type of router works with their services, and how to set it up once you purchase one. You can buy routers online, such as at Amazon, or from your local electronics store.

To access the internet on your Kindle Fire from other locations you would need to have a wi-fi hotspot to connect to. Many people now have them in their homes, so some of your relatives probably already have them (just ask, they should know if they do/don't) and if so you would just need to know their password to put it into your Kindle Fire (just once as it will remember it for future visits) and then you're ready to go.

There are also free wi-fi hotspots at many places such as hotels, cafes, airports, bookstores, etc. However, be careful if you use a free, open wi-fi connection. DO NOT visit websites or pages that require you to put in your personal password info, such as your bank website, etc. Free wi-fi spots are not safe for that kind of thing as someone can try to hijack your connection to get personal info like that.

ALSO, there's a Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G tablet (the one that is $399) which comes with a data plan that only costs $50 a year which allows you to ALWAYS have internet access, like your smart phone.

Here's a direct link to the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G on Amazon.

I hope this helps. If not, please email from my "Contact me" page.
Thanks!

I love my new Kindle Fire and your Web Site!
by: Cheri

I am a Grandmother that is physically challenged, so my activities are limited.

My hubby (the sweetest guy on the planet), decided to get me a Kindle Fire HD 8.9. He knows I love to read, watch movies, listen to music, etc.

Last night, I was bored and I Googled "so, what all can I do on my Kindle Fire HD. Your website was one of the ones that came up. I stayed up really late reading everything and trying to soak up everything on your page. As soon as we woke up this morning, I showed my hubby your web site. He's much better at figuring and configuring than I am, so we did it together. I got so excited to see that my Kindle can do much more than I thought it could!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to help people like me realize the full potential of their Kindle Fire. What a shame it would have been if I had never known it's full potential.

I now love my Kindle Fire HD and I also love your website. I've also signed up for the newsletters and liked your facebook page. I'm a fan of the Kindle, but I'm also a fan of yours! Keep up the good work!

Very helpful site.
by: David

This website is very good. Some of the Kindle Fire's 'features' are so annoying it's ridiculous. Which moron at Amazon thought that 'Trending Now', for example, would be something any sane person would want to see? I have been frustrated beyond belief trying to remove some of the digital sewage that finds its way (unsolicited) on to the Kindle. And now I can! And just for the record I NEVER, EVER, respond to advertising. It is electronic faeces. But the people whose god is money and who are money-worshippers don't realise this.

Bad Classmate
by: Lana

First just wanted to say thank you again for feedback about Google docs. And my son never puts his Kindle HD down lol. He loves it!!!

O.k I have another question. My son was in study hall helping a friend with his work. Another classmate who wishes he had a Kindle decided to go into my sons backpack and play with his. Well I have a security code set for my son but it did him no justice. The other boy began trying to punch in the code many times and finally after no luck a reset key popped up. So he pressed it. We lost everything (thank god for cloud though).

My question is... is there a way to stop this from happening again? It alarms me that the security code is actually not going to stop someone from getting into his Kindle. It might reset everything but "they can always start over".

------------------------------

Hi Lana, thanks for your kind comments! Unfortunately, there's not a way to keep the above from happening. Amazon has to have a way to let you reset your password/pin if you forget it, and this is the method they use.

The only other idea I have is that if your Kindle Fire is lost or stolen you should contact Amazon right away and have them unregister the tablet from your account. This will keep out any unwanted purchases, downloads, etc.

I've also created a new article about setting up a Kindle Fire Password that you might like to read, as you can create a password to protect from unwanted purchases.

I hope this helps! If you need more help please email me on my contact me page. Thanks!

Great site and very helpful
by: Eunice

I just got my Fire HD 8.9 two days ago. I already had a Motorola Xoom tablet but we needed another tablet so we could both have one to use whenever we wanted. I didn't want to spend as much money so decided on the Fire. I am excited to learn about making it act and look more like the other tablet and will try later.

My local newspaper has a reading app but so far it won't even install on the Fire so I am hoping side loading will do the trick.

Thank you for the great job you are doing on this website. I have searched all over for a Kindle fan site and am so glad to have found this one. Keep up the great work!

I do have one idea. I would love a section where Kindle users could share their favorite apps or games. I don't think there are many sites for this yet and it looks like there could be a lot of content here based on all the Kindle users. Just an idea.

------------------------------

Hi Brian, thank you for your kind words and for your great idea! I did try a place for people to share their favorite detective/mystery game, but it didn't quite catch on as I was the only one who posted. You can see it here:
http://www.lovemyfire.com/best-kindle-fire-detective-game.html#VisitorPages

Maybe I need to simplify things and make a more generic page for favorite games/apps, kind of like this testimonial comment page. That would make it easier to post a simple comment with your favorite app/game. That might really work. Thanks again for this idea, I'll have to try it out! :)

Kindle upgrade
by: Scott

I have to let you know that I do NOT regret my decision to upgrade from a Kindle Keyboard to the 7" Kindle Fire HD.

I first got my Kindle Keyboard when my Sony PDA began having fits. I researched and finally decided on the Kindle because I was mainly interested in reading books. I eventually missed being able to read magazines like I did on my Sony. Unfortunately, black and white photos just don't cut it.

When I finally admitted to myself (after two years) that I couldn't stand it anymore, I purchased my Fire HD. I love being able to take my Fire and read, watch videos, surf the Internet. I can even log onto my bulletin board system via my Fire.

My only regret is that I can't organize my books like I could on the Kindle Keyboard. But everything else more than makes up for it.

I do have to thank you for leading me to some great accessories. My cover (Origami Dual-View), screen protector (Skinomi TechSkin) and finally the BoxWave EverTouch Capacitive Stylus. All are exactly as you described and work great!

Keep up the great work!

A Have to Have Site
by: Sherry

Without my accidentally finding this site, I would still be trying to figure out too many things on this tablet.

The best cover/case article was timely - I bought the Roocase and it's impressive even to those who don't own a tablet! The pink/magenta cover is lovely and pleasant to look at - necessary to keep one's cool when tablet isn't performing well. All the angles are beyond handy, they are genius.

The article on apps nice to have - timely as well. I like to know what is going on behind the scenes on my computers and the top 3 apps suggested are indeed very helpful to me. My only question is how I change the channel I'm on to one with less traffic for better & faster performance?

Clear directions, easy reading, easy to understand explanations & good, clear web layout makes a huge difference when one knows nothing about tablets and just how they operate.

Apps is an abbreviation for Applications, who knew? Side loading - never heard of that before, much less having any idea on why an app needs to be side loaded.

Keep the info coming, as long as I can read, I can do anything with the proper directions. Oh, and thank you for your gift of helping others and sharing with the rest of us lacking that particular gift.

Sherry from Vancouver, WA

------------------------------

Thanks, Sherry, for your kind comments! As for your question about changing your wi-fi channel, you would do that with your wi-fi router.

Each router is a bit different, so I'd suggest going to your router's manufacturer to find out how to connect (usually through your Internet browser) to your router to make changes.

You would change the channel settings there. I learned by Googling info on changing my specific brand of router. Since I'm not an expert in this area I'm not sure how else to help, but hopefully this will send you in the right direction.

Thanks again!

A niche with a definitive purpose

LMKF blog has been 'turning me on' to different ideas that help me understand my first generation Kindle. The blog has shared with me ideas that the blog creator has tried and that saves me the time & wasted money finding out that the great idea I had, won't work, or in fact it will.

I hope LMKF doesn't feel the need to get "Sophisticated", well at least no more than it is already. The down to earth approach was very inviting, and allowed me to approach the blog not knowing but not feeling intimidated by the information.

Didn't love my kindle fire
by: Patricia

I received the kindle hd as a gift this Christmas. After trying to navigate the tablet I became frustrated with the lack of flexibility and lack of flash. The entire process felt cumbersome and not at all intuitive. I happened on Rachel's "Love my Kindle" site, downloaded the dolphin browser with Rachel's help and I have more hope in the possibility of making this a more fun device. Thank you, Rachel, for your help.

Grateful!
by: Now Soothed

I can't thank you enough for your kind and very helpful site and blog. It has allowed me to keep what is left of my pretty decent hair (for my age) after getting so frustrated with my new Kindle Fire HD. Given as a Christmas gift with love, Amazon's marketing strategy about got the best of me. Thanks to you, I was able to get the camera working just fine in one try. YES!!!!!
PS My wife is posting my first video clip (taken with the Fire HD) to YouTube. I think we'll title it "Kindle Fire Frustration." It's short and funny despite my agitation.

------------------------------

Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Yes, new technology can become quite frustrating when you can't figure out how to do something. Usually it just takes some time to become familiar with it, which I'm sure you will.

I'm glad my site has helped you keep your hair! LOL Have fun with your Kindle Fire!

Questions
by: Lana Miles

First, I love that you have made this site!!! So many questions have already been answered. I bought a Kindle Fire HD for my son for Xmas. Is there a security tracking feature at all that can be downloaded in case of theft? He is 12 and will be taking this to school. He also uses google docs for school projects. Will he be able to access this with his Kindle Fire? Thank you so much for all of your information. I will be visiting this site most often. It is the most informative site I have found :)

------------------------------

Hi Lana, thanks for your comment and questions!

Regarding tracking, as far as I understand none of the Kindle Fires have GPS, but the HD tablets do have a location service feature. You can see this by going to settings, slide up and select "Locaiton-based Services". Tap "Learn more" to read Amazon's page about it and to see if you want to enable this feature or not.

There are also a few apps that have locating services. I write about one on my Kindle Fire Security Apps page.

It looks like the app is currently compatible with the original Kindle Fire and the HD 8.9" but not the HD 7". I'm not sure which one you got for your son but you might like to check it out. There are a few others in the app store too.

As for Google Docs it looks like Google has renamed it to Google Drive, which you can access from the web browser (called Silk) on your Kindle Fire by going to drive.google.com so I don't think there will be a problem to use it like normal, you'll just be accessing it from a tablet and not a computer.

I'm sure your son will be super excited when he opens his Christmas present and finds a Kindle Fire inside! I know I did! (See My Kindle Fire Story for all the details.)

Thanks again for your questions!

Wallpaper doesn't work for my Kindle
by: Mark

Great step by step guides on stuff for the kindle fire.

However, tried doing the fix for putting my own wallpapers on the lock screen of my kindle fire HD, but it doesn't work.

I have opted out of the special offers, but that's all I get is the standard screen savers from the kindle itself. Any ideas?

-----------------
Hi Mark, thank you for your comment!

Unfortunately, Amazon has tightened its control of the operating system on the new Kindle Fire HD tablets. I have yet to discover how to replace the pre-loaded wallpapers with our own background images. (As soon as I do I'll post a new tutorial!)

The current tutorial on my site on How to Change Your Kindle Fire Wallpaper was written for the original Kindle Fire but doesn't work for the new Kindle Fire HD. There's a note explaining this on the page but it's easy to miss.

I have some other great Kindle Fire HD tricks and tips that you might want to check out if you haven't already.

Here are links to a few of them:


I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Thanks again for your comment!

Love My Fire (But Should I Upgrade)?
by: Anonymous

I love my Kindle, and I really didn't think I would. Basically, my boyfriend was stumped about what to get me for Christmas last year. He knew how much I love to read and was a bit annoyed at the enormous stacks of books that were piling up in every corner of the house. So he bought me a Kindle Fire.

I was dubious but figured since I had it I would try it. And I love it. I don't have any other tablet or even a smart phone, so I find myself using the wi-fi connectivity a lot. I take it to Starbucks or any other hotspot I can find and use it to check email, FB, etc. It can be a little frustrating, since it has neither the speed nor the power I'm used to at home, but I work around that.

I am frustrated by the small amount of memory. I filled my amazon cloud with music and then downloaded much of it to my Kindle without realizing how much memory it would eat up. Now I find I can seldom add a book to the device because the memory is full. I need to delete stuff to make room.

And so I am really tempted by the increased memory of the new Fire. It seems extravagant to upgrade so soon--I've had mine less than a year--but I want that extra memory!

Thanks for a great site!

---------------
Thanks, Anonymous, for sharing! Yes, the original Kindle Fire doesn't have enough memory with all the content we love to download with ebooks, music, apps, videos, docs, and games.

Of course, Amazon's Cloud does make it easier to keep things in the cloud and only download what you really want/need, especially for music files when you have a ton of them. It's almost easiest to listen directly from the cloud, but if you don't have Wi-Fi access at home, that would be a problem.

One suggestion would be to get a Wi-Fi router for your home Internet access. Your local electronics store has them, or you can order one off Amazon. There are a lot of online guides to help with figuring out how to set it up.

Another option would be to go ahead and upgrade, even though you've only had your Kindle Fire a year, it might be worth it, what with all the music and content you'd like to have on your tablet. What's great is that the new Kindle Fire HD devices have additional options to purchase more memory.

The 7" comes in 16GB and 32GB while the 8.9" comes in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB (4G only).

You might even want to consider the Kindle Fire 8.9" 4G so you could have constant Internet access for only $50/year (super cheap!) instead of getting a Wi-Fi router.

You can learn more about these options/features here: Kindle Fire HD

Thanks!

Some great tips!
by: Matt

Not fond of the ads everywhere, but I get that we all have to make a profit. ;) I've used many of your tips in setting up my Kindle Fire (received it about a week ago). I'm pretty tech savvy, so figured much out on my own.

Your current "camera" post almost makes it too hard. Just download the PicShop app (free on Amazon). Choose the "choose an image" icon and then pic "camera." Voila! Camera opens for you to snap a picture. AND you can edit/play with it in the same app. Two birds. One easy small stone!

-------------
Thanks, Matt, for your comments and input! Personally, I didn't make accessing the camera hard, that's Amazon's fault for not giving users a built in app to easily access their Kindle Fire's camera.

I do agree, however, that the app I use for accessing the camera does take a few more steps than using other apps, but that's because my way lets you record videos and then access the original files. The PicShop app you mentioned doesn't let you take videos with your camera, at least I've been unable to do so. Maybe the paid version does (I don't think so), but the free "lite" version doesn't.

When testing out other picture apps, I found they all saved the files in different locations, making it harder to find where the pictures were saved if you want direct access to them.

If you're going to learn how to access your camera it's best to know the way that also lets you access the video camera. Just my method though.

Thanks again!
-Rachel

Can't wait
by: Donna

I pre ordered the Fire HD 8.9, It says my delivery date will be Nov.26, my husband says he can't belive my will power. I can't either. I looked at the Asus 300t and almost did it, but I have a laptop and my husband has a pc, the Asus with the keyboard is another laptop. The Kindle will be great fun. When I get it I will post again. Love the site, I will be using your hints. Thanks for giving us your time.

A Genuine Person
by: Nilo, Bakersfield, CA

I found Love My Fire from Rachel's posts on the Kindle Fire Forum web site.

She seemed to me to be a genuine person, not at all like the snarky divas on other web sites. This site is one of my more 'likeable' web sites. She is not condescending or pedantic.

Her past involvement in I.T. work shows here. Her quick replies to my silly questions, shows me she is really interested in helping newbies like me. You would be wise to use her advice on Kindle Fire issues.
