Kindle Fire

Please note that compatibility for Kindle Fires is sometimes reached by a workaround, as not all library apps have been allowed into the Amazon App Store. 

Don't know what generation of Kindle Fire you have?  The 1st Generation have an orange "unlock" tab, or see this chart from Love My Fire.

Kindle Fire 1st Generation - now too old for some apps.


You'll note from above it can still use:
  • Enki ebooks - the Aldiko Reader app works well even on older devices.
  • OneClickdigital audiobooks - though definitely see this Older Android & Kindle Fire 1 notes page!  The search button in the app is no longer working for these devices, but you can still download & play books.
  • All 3 of the children's materials (E-STAX, storybooks).
