Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ Experience

leave a comment »


Great affordable price.

Amazon Free Time feature for have a sandbox account for children with set allowed apps, books and daily time limits. This is a main reason to get Kindle Fire HD for me (I have iphone and ipad and can act as an Apple fanboy at times).

Integration of all the Amazon Services in one device. Audible, Books, Apps etc.

Amazon App Store let’s you know if this app is works for your Android device. A major improvement on what I have seen for other Android Tablets



The power and volume buttons are very hard to press. They are pretty much flushed with the body and hard to find at times without looking hard for them.

Customer Service is not educated properly on all the features, specially Immersive Reading Experience. If you have an issue with that please contact Audible Support.

Flash does not work and is not supported anymore but not their fault as Adobe has stopped supporting it. I finally found a way to get Flash working on Kindle Fire HD 8.9″

Immersive Reading Experience can very frustrating as I downloaded both the Book and Narration and still did not work for me for some books. Even working with customer support for hours did not resolve it.
