New Fire with a Game Problem
« on: November 10, 2017, 03:49:52 PM »
Hey, all. My husband and I both use a Kindle Fire. He just got a new one, his second. I am using my second one, and we are a generation apart. His is generation 8 and mine is generation 7.

He would like to play Angry Birds Friends. But he can't. He gets ads for it, but cannot add it to his Fire. It is loaded on mine, the generation before his. But he still sees ads for it, so we assume by that that he could get it, but he can't.

Does this make sense? Hope so. Would it be simply that his generation cannot load that game? Are they not compatible? I don't understand why he can't load this in.

He is very frustrated and we're both confused by this. Can you help?

Is your husband side loading the app from somewhere other than Amazon app store? If so, be sure his Fire is set to allow Apps From Unknown Sources. On my Fire that setting is found under the Applications menu option.

No, we only use Amazon for these apps. Thanks for trying, though.
