Kindle Fire Users, Help Me Out!

Ok, so I am looking into buying a Kindle Fire soon. The biggest thing I use a tablet for is to write and when I start school, for school work. Are there any word processor apps that are either free or inexpensive? I would need one that is compatible with Word so that I can switch my documents back and forth. I do have a bluetooth keyboard for it as well. I'm using an ipad right now but I'm thinking of switching.

A Kindle Fire isn't ideal for that.

I don't I'd choose a Kindle for that purpose.

You are barking up the wrong tree for that. You will be bitterly disappointed

A Kindle Fire is great for games and reading, but I personally wouldn't use it for documents. You need a laptop of desktop for that with a real keyboard.

I actually figured this out on my own, lol. I forgot my mother had a kindle fire so I just borrowed hers for a few minutes. It worked perfectly with my keyboard and there is a word processing app built in that is compatible with word. It is actually less of a pain to transfer documents than my iPad. It's the same word processer that I have on my phone actually so I've used it before.

Yeah like the others I wouldn't use my kindle for that. I scored a cheap laptop from bestbuy for school. It runs slow sometimes but it does what I need it to do. You will have to buy office software separately. They don't come loaded with it anymore.
