4.0 out of 5 stars Great for knitting patterns!, 20 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Fire HD 7", Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi [Previous Generation] (Electronics)
This is most definitely a non-technical review. I don't do technicalities so its just a very personal statement of facts.

I shamelessly bought a Fire HD for no reason other than fun. We all deserve 'fun' and it's very easy to forget that we deserve 'fun' because it's an essential in life when you're a bit on the 'mature' side of life. I've put a handful of knitting patterns on mine and love how I can make pattern charts larger with a flick of my fingers and the colours are just great when it comes to colourwork charts. I've been able to download an app. which lets me outline sections, highlight the row I'm on and all sorts of knitterly nonsense. It's just made knitting even more fun.

I'm stuck on Level 7 of Angry Birds and have an assortment of games and puzzles, am e-mailing stuff to myself, am setting up Skype, am buying the odd utility app., books and music, think the sound quality is excellent, the pictures are brilliant and my Grandsons are speechless with admiration that I can even turn it on and - let's be honest - the screen is far bigger than their titchie smart 'phones when it comes to playing games which is why they're constantly asking if they can just try it out ... Another thing, it doesn't take rocket science to operate it because I'm doing it quite happily and so far, operating a video recorder is a mystery to me.

The charger. If you want faster battery charging, the Fire HD adaptor is an essential tool. It costs extra? Well yes but then again, you're not paying a huge amount for a tablet so either fork out for the special charger or have patience whilst your Fire fires up using another charger. I think the Fire HD is a lovely, useful and excellent way of spending time, money and having fun. :)

I was just thinking how great my new Kindle will be for on-line embroidery charts/knitting or crochet patterns, etc - no need to print patterns and charts now using up tons of expensive printer ink! And where did you find that knitting app Mrs Beeching?

In reply to an earlier post on 21 Dec 2012 12:43:06 GMT
On the App. button/Store and it's called 'RepliGo Reader'. You open your pattern in the app. and on the righthand side, are various drawing tools. I've used the highlighter to mark the row I'm on if I put my work aside and the box tool for marking a pattern repeat. Fiddly at times to get out of it but I think that's more down to me.
