Kobo must also be sideloaded for the Fire (or at least for the original Fire and the Fire HD8.9, which I have on my account. The appstore version shows as incompatible with those devices).jruschme said:If you have books from other eBook retailers, there are the Kobo, Nook, and Sony Reader apps (the latter two of which must be sideloaded).
Xfinity is now available in the Amazon store. YAY! No more fuzzy icon!jruschme said:I second Dropbox and also recommend the Box.com app for decent cloud storage alternatives.
I also second Flixster. If you have any Ultraviolet movies, you can link your UV account to a Flixster account and stream/download them to the Fire. You can also link a Netflix account and manage your DVD and Instant queues from the Fiixster app.
You have to sideload it, but the Xfinity TV Player app is great if you are an Xfinity subscriber. I think other cable providers have similar apps.

Then there are the old standbys like Pandora and Netflix.
TextNow is the other one I've used, and I use it more often than TextPlus these days. The thing I like about TextPlus is that I can send bulk texts out. I'll send one message out to both daughter-in-law for example, when we're meeting somewhere.maryjf45 said:I just got Textplus and there is another texting app that's also free. I can only send and receive when I am in wifi territory, but it is still useful to me, since my husband and daughters have cell phones but I don't (I don't usually want to talk to, or listen to anyone, so why pay for it?).
