Dear Computer Lady,
How do I get apps on my Kindle Fire? Can I find them online, or shop at the appstore?
Your Kindle Fire will only run apps that are designed for it. If you find an app at the iPad appstore, it wont run on your Kindle Fire unlesss the the developer has released a separate version for your device as well.
The best way to find apps that will work with your tablet, is to go to the Apps Library on your Fire, and tap on the “Store” link.
From there, you can search for a specific app, or browse through the apps. While you are there, be sure to check out the Free app of the day.
When you find an app that you want to use, tap the orange download button, then tap again to either purchase or start the download. When the download is finished, tap the “Open” button to try out your app.
