1.0 out of 5 stars ads in a paid for app!, 7 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Didn't get much further than the tutorial, 2 ads in the space of 30sec + in app purchases...

Yet another get rich crap app.

Avoid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yet aother old app version in the Amazon store..., 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deezer (App)
Lucky enough to get a free deezer sub with my sonos system, the music service itself is so good that I cancelled my spotify sub. Unfortunately like a lot of amazon apps for the kindle it's an older version riddled with bugs and none of the benefits of the official Android version..

If you own a kindle I'd recommend that you avoid this app completely or look into side loading Google apps instead.

@Amazon your app store is at times v disappointing, less up to date and relevant than windows mobile!

1.0 out of 5 stars No updates or wear integration.., 29 Sept. 2014

Cheaper than play store for a reason, slow to update, those looking for wear integration or support should look elsewhere..

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work on the 8.9 kindle, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Shockingly poor interface, back issues are not free to subscribers and it doesn't work on the 8.9 kindle. Not all wired UK's fault, Adobe need to fix their reader, but the recently launched German and Italian editions put this to shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good nostalgic fun, 7 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Etch A Sketch (App)
Nice quirky take on the etch a sketch (not entirely sure what the racoons and squirrels are all about). The app has introduced the use of coloured lines as well as the ability to paint/colour in your drawings and my daughter also likes the games. My biggest gripe is that it currently doesn't remember the fact that I've unlocked the premium features for her and I have to repurchase it (amazon recognises that its already purchased and does not charge again) please fix this!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best tablet on the market, 4 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Kindle HD fire is hands down the best tablet on the market (I own more than I should..). Whilst it doesn't have as mature an app store as Google's, it makes up for this with its excellent screen, webcam, Wi-Fi, battery life and astounding speakers. It's got every option covered and given the price I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it over the iPad or nexus 7. Christmas is sorted!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Basic Offline Maps/another useful free app of the day, 4 Nov. 2012
Given that it's currently free, I really can't understand why this is getting so many negative reviews, whilst it's basic and the map is a little slow at times to refresh, it works as advertised and found my location via Wi-Fi fairly quickly. The map for my area is accurate and it also has the added advantage over offline Google maps in that it's actually able to provide local information offline. Whilst I won't be using this every day it's certainly good enough to be useful when abroad/when there's no data access.

So far this works as advertised on the Kindle Fire HD, Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus.

re: user tracking, it's there in plain sight under settings and can be switched off. Nothing sinister to see here, if you don't want it track your usage switch it off!

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible microphone, 2 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a birthday present for my partner, all was well until we tried to use it for skype... Truely awful sound quality and everyone we called complained. As this laptop uses the same audio chipset as the majorty of ultrabooks, my own toshiba included, its beyond me how samsung could have messed this up so badly. Returned for a full refund.
