This unique book will get you loving your new Kindle Fire quickly!
Bufo Calvin, author of the bestselling I Love My Kindle blog, takes you through all the options with a thorough hands-on.
The book has a series of what the author calls "splinterviews", where Bufo interviews Bufo on each of the main functions of the Fire, from movies to web browsing to apps to e-books.
For those looking for the official information, an appendix gathers links to Amazon's Kindle Fire resources in one spot.
Among the discoveries you may make:
* How to set a password for your Kindle Fire
* How to remove websites from your Carousel
* How to use the Pulse app to get free blogs on your Kindle Fire
* How to change your notification sound
* Apps Reviews (including ones that greatly enhance the value of your Kindle Fire...providing parental controls and transferring files between your Fire and your computer wirelessly)
* Testing other sources for video besides Amazon
* What you lose when you deregister and reregister your Kindle Fire (it's not like the other Kindles)
Updated with information about the new 6.2.1 update! That includes how to remove items from the Carousel and how to put them back, and password protecting internet access.
Updated with information about the 6.2.2 update (adding full screen on webpages and the ability to set Flash to be "on demand). We've also added a handy troubleshooting section, addressing some of the most common situations. Latest app reviews include Splashtop which displays content from a computer on your Kindle Fire and lets you interact with it.
Now with information for version 6.3: this significant update changes some menus, redoes the keyboard, makes finding your personal documents easier, adds a reading mode for some websites, and enables you to chat with other readers (and maybe the author) while in a book.
A new "how-to" section gives step by step instructions for popular activities, including listening to text-to-speech with your Kindle Fire (although not with Kindle store books), using the Overdrive app to get e-books from your public library, and downloading movies to watch on an airplane.
A major revision has added nearly ten thousand words (bringing the total close to 45,000 words), with new introductions to each of the content types. The earlier introductions have been moved to the back of the book. A new section explains what the difference is between doing things on your "Device" and in the "Cloud". The book has also been updated to reflect the 6.3.1 update, which added parental controls.
