Looking to get a Kindle Fire...

Posted by   + Show Post
Hubby got me a tablet for Christmas and it is nice however I am looking into getting a kindle fire. Do any of you have one? If so do you like it, does it crash a bunch when using the apps and also are you able to play the games on Facebook ( such as FarmVille 2) on it?

Thanks for your help ladies!

Don't let the library be the selling point- it's only one book per month! :( what tablet do you have?

Quoting caswebworks:

The one I have is a piece of crap... It crashes all of the time, can't access the Internet... And the list goes on... I am a prime member with Amazon and I know if you have a kindle you can also use the lending library....



I also would love to be able to have a tablet that I can use for Facebook and play the games Facebook has such as FarmVille 2.

You could just get the Kindle Fire app for your tablet.

I have both a KF and an iPad (I got the KF first, almost a year before I got my iPad). Doesn't look like there is an FV2 app for it though. I do like it (but I love my iPad more), though my biggest pet peeve is the organization of the books and how tedious it is to upload anything to it (if you ever deregister or reset it that is).

It does have a decent number of apps though.

Same here! I have had my kindle fire since it came out and I still love it. My 4 year old got one for Christmas and he loves his. I am not sure on the fb games either

I love my Kindle Fire. I've never had it crash on me. I can't tell you much about playing the Facebook games though because I don't play those.

I love my fire but you cant play farmville on it and you cant read in the sunlight :-( I prefer my original kindle for reading books. The prime is good for movies but you only get one free book a month

Yes and no. It's primary function is an e-reader but it does function as a tablet would. IT is heavily customized by amazon even though it is an andriod you can't use google play on it but amazon has an app store.


OP I've had my Fire HD for a week and love it! I rarely use my computer anymore. I have FB and a messenger app on it and a few games but mostly books

Just out of curiousity....if you already have a tablet why not read on that? A kindle Fire is a Tablet, right? 

 


I may not be a perfect wife or mother but I am perfect in the eyes of my son and my husband and that is all that matters.
