Kindle Fire Side Load Apps

I’ve been playing with my new Kindle Fire since I received it last week.

It’s a nice tablet. You can check reviews elsewhere. I was a bit concerned about the limited Kindle Fire approved apps in Amazon’s App Store. I have a few key apps that I would like to run.

PC Magazine has a very good tutorial on how to add third party apps.

I have been able to load and run the following apps:

  • HBO Go
  • Squeezebox (Logitech Squeezebox Controller App)
  • Squeezebox Commander
  • Twit on MediaFly
  • WSJ Mobile
  • Nook (Barnes and Noble Reader App)
  • Bing
  • iHeart Radio

So far, so good.

Hey Chris, thanks for your post. I see that you've downloaded the WSJ app successfully to the Fire. I'm not so lucky because the Android Mkt web page says that my cell phone (T-Mobile HUAWEI Comet) is not compatible with the app.

Would it be possible for you to pass the APK to me so I can bypass the cell phone part?

Thanks!
