Hot like Kindle Fire
Amazon's Kindle Fire slates were hot to trot when they first debuted and they continue to set the tablet world ablaze with the better-than-ever HDX lineup. The upgrades to the new slates were a welcome improvement, but one thing that didn't change is the Amazon Appstore. The highly curated Appstore doesn't offer as great a variety as the Apple App Store or Google Play, but it's not chopped liver either.
Here are some essential Kindle Fire apps that'll work for the HDX, HD, and original models. This isn't meant to be a definitive list of the best or most essential apps, but a collection of great downloads to get you started with your new device, or new titles for your old one.
