40 Tips and Tricks for Kindle Fire HD
Below is a list of 40 tips, tricks, hidden features, and recommended apps for the Kindle Fire HD. There’s always a lot to learn when getting started with a new tablet, and these tips can help everyone from the beginner to the advanced user get more out of their Kindle Fire HD tablets. Feel free to share your own tips and recommended apps in the comments section too!

Basic Getting Started Tips

1. Kindle Fire HD Help and Support – Here’s the link to the Kindle Fire HD help sectionat Amazon where you can find user guides and help articles on getting started, setting up Wi-Fi, navigating the user interface, troubleshooting, shopping, transferring content, setting up email, and plenty more. The Kindle also comes with an app and has a section in the settings menu called “Help & Feedback” to access Amazon’s help pages from the device itself.

2. Access Notifications and Settings Menu – The notifications menu is accessed by swiping down from the top of the screen. There are a number of quick settings here and the main settings menu is accessed by pressing the "More" button.

3. Install 3rd Party Apps – In order to install apps from outside the Amazon appstore, including several linked to below, you need to turn on "Allow Installation of Applications from Unknown sources" located in Settings > Device.

4. Automatic Screen Rotation – You can turn on and off automatic screen rotation by opening the notifications menu and tapping the locked/unlocked icon in the upper left corner.

5. Check Battery Percentage – Settings > Device. For a better and easier way see #30.

6. Check Storage Space – Settings > Device > Storage.

7. Parental Controls – In the settings menu there’s an option for parental controls where you can setup a password to restrict purchasing content, using the web browser, accessing certain apps, and more.

8. Password Protection – In Settings > Security there’s an option to set a lock screen password so that other people cannot access your Kindle.

9. Uninstalling Apps and Removing Content – Simply long-press on any app, ebook, movie, or other icon to bring up the option to "Remove from Device". For Amazon’s content this moves the item to the cloud and it won’t be deleted permanently.
10. Remove Items from Carrousel – Long-press icons for the option to remove them.

11. Favorites – Add individual apps, ebooks, movies, web pages, and so forth by long-pressing the icon and selecting to "Add to Favorites". These can be accessed at any time by pressing the star icon in the lower right. This works well for quickly jumping back and forth between different apps.

More Kindle Fire HD Tips and Tricks

12. Free Daily Android App – Make sure to open your Kindle Fire’s appstore each day to download the free paid daily app.

13. Remove Ads – After logging into your Amazon account, go to the Manage Your Devices section of your Kindle account. From there you can choose to "Edit" the Special Offers to unsubscribe from them. It costs $15 plus tax.

14. Change Name in Upper Left Corner – To change the name that appears on the upper left corner of the Kindle Fire, login to your Amazon account and go to the Manage Your Devices page. From there you can edit the name to whatever you want.

15. Alternate Appstores – By enabling 3rd party app installs (#3), you can install apps from anywhere you please. Here’s a list on some of the more popular alternate appstores.

16. Sideloading Apps – Apps can be sideloaded in a number of ways. You can place the apk files on the Kindle’s internal memory and then use a file manager to locate and then tap the file to prompt install. Or you can use a file storage app like Dropbox. When using the web browser to download apps, simply tap the file once it is finished downloading to install.

17. Using Bluetooth – To use Bluetooth, first turn on your Bluetooth device. Then on the Kindle Fire HD go into Settings > Wireless > Bluetooth > Enable. Tap the device’s name to make it visible, then tap the Bluetooth device’s name you’re connecting once it pops up (or hit search for devices if it doesn’t show) and then it will be good to go. Unfortunately I’ve noticed that it often requires the Bluetooth device to be reconnected manually by tapping the device’s name again after the device has been turned off for a while.

18. Using the Camera – Download PicShop Lite Photo Editor from the Amazon appstore (it’s free, or you can upgrade to the paid version). Open the app, hit the icon in the lower left, then choose "Camera". Like the Google Nexus 7, the Kindle Fire HD has a front-facing camera but they neglected to give users a way to access it since they only intended it to be used for video chat. Update: see this post for a better way to access the hidden camera, which includes a video recording and panoramic option too.

19. Install Adobe Flash Player on Kindle Fire HD – Amazon isn’t supporting Adobe Flash on their tablets anymore but that doesn’t mean Flash doesn’t work. All you need to do to get Flash on the Kindle Fire HD is download a web browser from an alternate appstore (#15) and the Flash Player app below. I’m successfully using the Dolphin web browser(version 8.8.1) and this version of Flash Player.

20. File Manager – The Kindle Fire doesn’t come with any file management software, which can make things a lot easier if you need to move files or access folders you can’t normally get access to. My favorite is ES File Explorer, and it’s free in the Amazon appstore. Highly recommended.

21. Micro HDMI – The Kindle Fire HD has a micro HDMI port that works great for connecting to a TV or monitor. On Amazon, micro HDMI cables are only a few bucks. Or you can get an adaptor to fit a full size cable connector. Just make sure to get one with a "Micro" (Type D) connection to fit the Fire.

22. YouTube – You can access YouTube with the Silk web browser but the actual YouTube app is a lot better. I sideloaded the version from the Nexus 7 and it works great, even in HD. It just won’t let you login. Here’s the link: download YouTube apk.

23. Facebook – Here’s the link to the official Facebook app at Amazon. For some reason it gets buried under miles of search results when you try to find it from the KFHD.

24. Google Maps and Street View – Google Maps and Street View aren’t available on Amazon’s tablets, but they work just fine when you sideload them. Here are the download links: Google Maps and Street View.

25. Calculator – Every tablet should come with a calculator app pre-installed but for some reason Amazon doesn’t think that is necessary (I guess they don’t want you calculating how much money you are spending on their stuff). Luckily there are number of free calculator apps in the appstore.

26. Screen Dimming – When reading at night the lowest brightness setting isn’t low enough for some people, me included. With Screen Filter you can adjust the brightness of the screen to as dark as you want it.

27. Turn Off Notifications – Sometimes apps can get annoying with pestering notifications. Luckily Amazon added the option to turn off notifications for individual apps in Settings > Applications > Notification Settings.

28. PDF Reader Apps – If the Kindle’s PDF app isn’t cutting it, there are much better options out there. The best PDF apps available in the Amazon appstore are Adobe Reader, which is free, and ezPDF Reader and Repligo Reader for paid. If you want to sideload other PDF apps, here’s a list of the Best PDF Android apps both free and paid.

29. Read ePub eBooks on Kindle Fire HD – Amazon offers various ePub reading apps in their appstore, but they are mysteriously not available on the Kindle Fire. Luckily you can sideload other reading apps such as Nook, Kobo, and Aldiko. Here’s a list of ePub eReading apps for the Kindle Fire.

30. Battery Monitoring App – One way to monitor battery usage is with the GSam Battery Monitor. Another good thing about this app is that it shows the exact battery percentage in the notifications menu so you don’t have to go all the way into the settings menu to find it.

31. Silk Reader – The silk web browser has a feature that takes the content of a page and cleanly re-formats it. There are different text sizes and formatting options. Look for the green glasses icon located on the web browser tab. It only appears on article-type pages.

32. Cloud Storage – In addition to Amazon’s cloud drive, you can use other cloud storage options to easily save, stream, share, and move files. Two popular options that work well with the Kindle Fire are SugarSync and Dropbox. The former is available in the Amazon appstore and the latter can be downloaded from the link above.

33. Uploading Music – You can upload your personal music collection to Amazon’s cloud drive and stream it or download it to your tablet. Here’s the directions for uploading music. The first 250 songs are free, then you have to get a premium plan to add up to 250,000 more, which costs $24.99 per year.

34. Wireless Hard Drive – One way to expand the Kindle Fire HD’s limited storage space is to get a Kingston Wi-Drive. They come in three sizes: 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. You’ll need the Kingston Android app too.

35. Select Text & Copy and Paste – When using the web browser and certain other apps, you can select and copy text by long-pressing on the word and then dragging the little arrows. To paste, long-press in any text entry field to bring up the option. You can also long-press on links and images with the browser to bring up saving, sharing, and other options.
36. Access a Computer Remotely – You can access your computer and all the files and programs on it directly from your Kindle Fire HD with the Splashtop Remote Android app.

37. Loading non-Amazon eBooks and Personal Documents – The fastest and easiest way to load non-Amazon ebooks and personal documents on to your Kindle Fire HD is to use a send to Kindle application or email them to the Kindle Fire’s free email address. The unique address can be found under Settings > My Account, and can be modified from theManage Your Kindle page under personal documents settings.
38. Downloaded eBooks and PDFs - If you download a MOBI ebook or PDF with the web browser and want it to show up on the homescreen carrousel and in the personal documents section, you need to use a file manager (#20) to move the downloaded file from the “Download” folder to the “Documents” folder. It will show up once you leave the homescreen and then come back to it.

39. Free Library eBooks – The Kindle Fire HD supports library ebooks downloaded for free from your local library. You can use the Kindle option or install the OverDrive Android app.

40. Kindle eBooks – Here are some links to popular sections at Amazon for Kindle ebooks: • Kindle Daily Deal (includes the Kids Daily Deal too) • 100 Kindle books under $3.99 • Free popular classics • Top 100 best-sellers + top 100 free ebooks • Kindle eTextbooks • Kindle Singles • Kindle Serials

Ipad vs Kindle

...Compare and Contrast Ipad vs. Kindle When you hear the word Ipad vs. Kindle there will always be comparisons but unfortunately, there is only one, that’s better than the other. Some people read a couple of books each on the Kindle, and IPad and take notes to differentiate their experience, reading speed, eye strain and so forth. Most of them were busy with the hard task of watching movies back to back to see how long the iPad’s battery would last. Only one reviewers and critics mentions actually reading a complete book on the iPad. The Ipad and Kindle are similar in many ways. They both are hand held devices that are portable. You can read books on both. Kindle devices can also sync with iPhones as well as ipads. Both ipad and kindle software is compatible with Windows, iPhone OS, BlackBerry, and Mac. Kindle device can be used without a computer and provides free access to the internet. At first kindle devices didn’t have apps to launch but, now you can’t shop for puzzles, games, travel guides and more, just like the ipad. Finally the ipad and kindle are equipped with 3G wireless that allows quick download of books. The Ipad and kindle are different in many ways as well. Kindle has 450,000 books as compared to the iPad’s starting selection of 60,000 titles. Kindle is lighter (10.2 ounces) and you can read with one hand. Ipad is ‘much heavier’ (1.5 pounds) and ‘most people will need two hands to use it’ .Kindle has much better battery life which you can leave......

Promotion Campaign for Amazon Kindle

...Promotion Campaign for Amazon Kindle Situational Analysis Industry Overview The eReader market has obviously achieved its maturity stage. Although the first eReaders were introduced already in the late 1990s, the devices had grown in popularity only a few years ago, after the launch of the Amazon’s Kindle in 2007. Since 2006 when Sony introduced the American market to the first so-called “dedicated ebook reader” using electronic ink, a lot of other manufacturers decided to share a piece of the money cake. Soon Sony was no longer the monopolist on the market of this utterly new class of devices. Amazon managed to get the biggest slice of the market thanks to Kindle’s ultimate competitive advantage at that point – wireless download of ebooks, which contributed to an increase in impulse buying. At the moment, not only has the competition among eReader manufacturers escalated, but the consumers are being aggressively persuaded to buy a more multi-purpose device, such as a tablet computer, thus causing a category competition between dedicated eReaders and Tablets, most notably iPads. Growth of the market In recent years, despite tough competition from tablet computers, the eReader market has been experiencing outstanding growth rates. The number of ereader owners in the US has doubled in May 2011 since November 2010 from 6% to 12%, according to Pew Research Center, which is outstanding compared to the growth of tablet ownership: only 60% growth......

...to (or detract from) your overall look instantly. Keeping it in healthy condition is the most important thing you can do to help it look and feel fabulous. And, while it seems easy, this isn't as simple as minimizing chemical treatments or slathering on a weekly deep conditioner. While these can make your strands softer and less split-end-prone, what really matters is the daily handling; this is what creates the most stress--and potential damage--to your tresses. To help your locks look their best, we asked top experts from around the country for their advice on how to baby your mane every single day. So whether your concern is dullness, damage, frizz or fragility, we have the answers to ease even the toughest hair-care woes. Read on for tips to achieve run-your-fingers-through-it hair. 1 Steer clear of plastic-bristle brushes. "The proper bristles are key," says stylist Edward Tricomi of the Warren-Tricomi Salon in New York City. "A combination of natural boar bristles on either a round or flat brush are best for dry hair, while soft, rubber-toothed wide-paneled brushes are best for damp hair." Our favorite brushes include the Mason Pearson Boar Bristle brush ($78.50; zitomer.com) and Aveda's Wooden Paddle Brush ($17; aveda.com). 2 Brush before shampooing.

Eventually, the Kindle Fire HDX electronic access started outselling the printed versions of novels, which lead to a revolution of technology.

Amazon Kindle

...Market Equilibrating Process Mariam Ibrahim ECO/561 June 06, 2011 Tom Hodgkiss The Amazon kindle was a enormous hit; it is surprising how technology grows fast enough that it comes up with an updated version in the same year. I was interested in how it sold out in five and a half hours the minute Amazon released it for the first time, and I always kept comparing it to the NOOK. This example is perfect to explain the market equilibrium process and how the supply and demand apply. The law of demand is simple, “there is a negative or inverse relationship between price and quantity demanded.”(Campbell R. McConnell, Stanley L. Brue, Sean M. Flynn,  2009, p.47 ), which basically means the when the price rises, the quantity demanded falls or vice versa. The determinants of demand can shift the demand curve and change the demand schedule such as change in buyer’s taste, numbers of buyers, consumer’s income, price-related goods, and consumer expectations. The law of supply is a positive relationship between price and quantity supplied (Campbell R. McConnell, Stanley L. Brue, Sean M. Flynn, 2009), which is basically means that if the price rises the quantity supplied will rise too. The determinants of supply are a few that can affect the supply curve, such as the resource prices, technology, taxes and subsidies, prices of other goods, producer expectations, and the number of sellers. This leads me to the market equilibrium, which means that......

Amazon Kindle Case Study

...Amazon Kindle Case Study The case study under review in the McGraw Hill text International Business: competing in a global marketplace on page 533 deals with the Amazon Kindle e-reader. The e-reader market quickly became flooded with competition from many competitors who have found ways to design the products mainly in the United States but find cheap parts and labor by outsourcing manufacturing to other countries. This international competition is no surprise in an increasingly global market. When deciding where to manufacture the key components of the Amazon Kindle, the main driving factors considered were sleek design that is highly functional and reliable with relatively low price. In designing the display, Amazon utilized the design expertise of a leading company in Cambridge, Massachusetts. E Ink designed the microcapsule beads that make the Kindle’s display visible with miniscule amounts of battery. Despite the research and design coming from American firms, there are no American firms that have the ability to manufacture the “bistable electrophoretic display” that shows an image without utilizing battery power. Amazon landed on a Taiwanese based company to manufacture the display components; which are the single most expensive to manufacture, costing about $60 per unit. Next the wireless card is designed by Qualcomm in San Diego and allows the Kindle user to access the digital bookstore wirelessly. The component cost about $40 to manufacture and is produced......

Amazon Kindle Marketing Strategy

...Kindle DX Marketing Strategy Analysis Launching any product requires a lot of planning and forethought. Without a proper plan, it becomes difficult to design the most appropriate marketing strategy than can lead the way towards success. The 4 P’s We must analyze the 4 P’s i.e. the product, price, place and promotion. In the case of Kindle DX launch, the type of product is relatively new in the market. For this unique kind of product, which seems to be an advanced version of book, it might take time before the target market can realize the importance of the product to them. To cross this stage, promotion of the product is necessary. The product is an enhancement over its predecessors in terms of its screen size which changes it target market more towards college students, who can interpret this device as ebook reader. Promotion The company is using the below the line marketing strategy. One aspect of this strategy is the word-of-mouth method, which involves the promotion undertaken by the buyers of product themselves. The company firmly believes that this method can bring more success than other methods. However, relying to the large extent on just one method exposes the company to risks of negative publicity because unsatisfied buyers can spread negative information about the product. The company virtually has no control over this method of marketing unless they supplement it with above the line advertising such as internet advertising and through select......

Kindle or Ipad

...Is 3G for Kindle worth the extra cost? I'm trying to decide between Kindle WiFi and Kindle 3G + WiFi and global wireless. It's about $50.00 more for the extra features. I don't do a lot of international traveling, so the second feature isn't very important to me. However, does having 3G really enhance the Kindle? Also, how necessary is the two year extended warranty? Best Answer - Chosen by Asker @ Cherry Bomb, though I'm a book lover, I get to disagree with you. The new Kindle can last for one month on a single charge, while many mobile phone (like iPhone) can last no more than one day. Is it really likely to get the Kindle out of battery? And even though I love actual books, I've to accept the fact that ebook will become more and more popular because it is so much convenient, eco-friendly, and we can get dictionary, annotations, highlights, read aloud to us, all with a device without bringing another dictionary or pen or audio book. We can put thousands of favorite books in one, instead of bringing tiles of heavy books. It's a trend, we need to accept and live with it, otherwise even ourselves with get sunk in the wave and get lost in the society. I miss the past time when I write and send letter with paper, but now I accept and enjoy the convenience brought to me by email.

Tips

...TIPS Find an aloe-vera plant in your vicinity. Now, just break a leaf, break it into two and use the extract or the juice mixed with natural rose water for best skin protection from tanning and clogging. This also helps to overcome the skin allergies, rashes and itching. • Potatoes are one of the ancient remedies to strip the skin from dead cells. Some nutrients from this common vegetable can break down the grease inside the skin pores, this way enhancing the efficient elimination. • In fact all you have to do is place a slice of it on the whitehead and leave it on for a few minutes, you can then rinse off the area with tepid water. The effect of the treatment will resemble that of an exfoliation when the pores are freed from the clogging agents. • Apples have almost the same banishing power over whiteheads as tomatoes. However in order to have a smashing effect crush the apples and mix them with 3 tbs of honey.
