Best Kindle Fire Apps

The Kindle Fire is now available from Amazon. As new as it is, there are not too many apps to choose from until the third party software companies have time to get some of the new color screened Kindles in their hands in order to tailor their existing Android apps to work on the Fire. As was the case with Apple's iPad 2, we can expect many third parties to get in on the action with apps and carrying cases. There are some apps that are currently available for the Fire.

Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime is an app that comes pre-loaded on the device. Well, I guess it should be called a service more than an app. You get a one-month free trial to the service that serves as the Fire's primary entertainment delivery application. Prime is $79.00 per year, and it will give you access to more than 10,000 movies and TV shows. Additionally, you will receive access the Kindle Owners' Lending Library and get free 2 day shipping on your Amazon orders. (With the Fire's low price point at $199.00, experts say that it cost Amazon more to produce than $199.00 each. Perhaps Amazon is banking on their Prime subscriptions to make up for the loss on each unit.)

Netflix

In case Amazon's selection of movies is not enough, if you subscribe to the Netflix streaming option , there is an app that can be used to access your Netflix shows and movies which has an even larger selection than Amazon Prime. Since the Netflix app is in direct competition with Amazon Prime, I applaud Amazon for giving Fire owners a choice between the two.

comiXology

For Comic Book enthusiasts, comiXology is a comic book reader that allows you to choose from both Marvel and DC publishers. This is good news for comic enthusiasts since it seemed at the out set that only DC comics might be available on the Fire as an feud developed between Amazon and Barnes & Noble in the comic arena.

Pandora

The Pandora music app will be available on the Kindle Fire. If you are not familiar with Pandora, it is a type of online music discovery program that plays random types of music until you train it to play the types of music or bands that you prefer.

Pulse

The Pulse app is an online news reader. When you open the app before you leave the access to your Wi-Fi network, it will save your recent news of your choice to the reader for later access.

It seems that the Kindle Fire has great apps available right out of the gate, and I can't wait to see what third party developers have in store for the kind as they are now able to get their hands on it.
