5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant addition to my apps, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A friend recommended it to me who is using it on ipad. I was delighted to find that I could get it for my Kindle Fire HD. It was soon set up; I was immediately monitoring the planes that fly in and out of Heathrow, which is a few miles from where I live. Now I know where the planes are coming from or going to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful to have on your Kindle, 31 Mar 2014

This review is from: Calculator Plus Free (App)
The other day I was reading my newspaper (on Kindle) and wanted to do a quick calculation without having to go into another room to fetch a calculator. I wondered if there might be a ready, and free,, app. There it was! certainly useful to have on my Kindle.

A very pleasant surprise as to what it would do! From a worldwide view to pinpointing where I am actually at that moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A careful study, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Here is Avery careful day by an engineer who had few pre-conceived ideas about climate change and was only concerned with sifting the evidence.he inconveniently came to the conclusion that he was a sceptic and that carbon dioxide had very little to if anything with climate change..

4.0 out of 5 stars Just one disappointment!, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a physicist and most of this excellent little book was familiar to me. Given to me as a present I found it easy to read and it could well be appreciated by a non-scientist who wants to get a quick grasp of the history of science up to the present day. The one disappointment for me was the omission of the Nobel Prize winning physicist, Richard Feynman

5.0 out of 5 stars A huge improvement on the first but also good Kindle!, 27 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Kindle Fire HD (Paperback)
I have now had the Kindle Fire 5 months and am still discovering more of what it can do. Basically used for reading books it can magnify diagrams and pictures (I read a lot of science books) and downloading a newspaper and magazines means i can easily read the print which can cause problems with my eyesight these days. And its all in colour too!

This review is from: States of USA (App)
OK - it shows you where each sate is on the map of the USA, but I should have liked to be able to enlarge the map of each state to get more detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful bonus!, 23 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buying this to replace a copy of the same work by another publisher, I had not noticed until it arrived the provision of a CD of the work. Although I have other recordings it is useful to have this one with the book. I have already used it several times as I study the piece

2.0 out of 5 stars Diappointing feature of this product, 23 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BBC Music Magazine (App)
For one whose sight is not so good as it used to be, this product provides plenty of scope for reading all kinds of type. However, there is no download facility for its monthly CD - at least not for Kindle Fire. Users of ipad and iphone have this facility it seems. Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful asset for the Kindle kit, 27 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I put them into use straightaway and found them excellent. No more smears on the tablet face and very useful, if used together for changing the size of the typeface, etc.
