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.
