There are only a couple of days left until the Kindle Fire ships in people’s home and you might want to know what apps will be available to install on the tablet.
When customers will open their boxes on November 15, they will be able to choose from several thousand of Android apps and games such as Netflix, Rhapsody, Pandora, Twitter, Facebook, The Weather Channel, comiXology’s Comics and well known games from EA, Gameloft, Zynga, PopCap and Rovio. Users won’t have to worry if these apps will work or not on the Kindle Fire because they are Amazon-tested (most of them) on the Kindle Fire itself.
”We started talking to app developers everywhere the day we introduced Kindle Fire, and the response has been overwhelming,” Dave Limp, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. “In addition to over 18 million movies, TV shows, songs, books, and magazines from Amazon, we are excited to offer customers thousands of apps and games to choose from on Kindle Fire – from Pandora and Rhapsody to Facebook and Twitter to Netflix, as well as popular games from EA, Zynga and many other top game developers. And this is only the beginning – we’re adding apps and games every day across all categories.”
The Netflix app will also be available on the Kindle Fire through which Netflix customers will be able to browse, access, and watch unlimited TV shows and movies. We didn’t expect Netflix on the Amazon’s tablet, taking into account the Amazon Prime Service which is similar to Netflix. Kindle Fire customers will receive a one month free Amazon Price Instant subscription, allowing them to stream over 13,000 movies and TV Shows.
“We’re excited to team up with Amazon to give what we think will be a huge community of Kindle Fire owners the opportunity experience all that Netflix has to offer,” said Bill Holmes, Vice President of Business Development at Netflix. “We’re certain that our members will have a great viewing experience on Kindle Fire.”
More apps that work great on Kindle Fire include “Allrecipes, Bloomberg, Cut the Rope, Doodle Fit, Doodle Jump, Fruit Ninja, Jenga, LinkedIn, Zillow, Airport Mania, Battleheart, Pulse, The Cat in the Hat, Quickoffice Pro, Jamie’s 20-Minute Meals, IMDb Movies & TV, and Monkey Preschool Lunchbox”
