Hi, I would like to download the BT wi-fi app to use on my kindle fire hd. The only place I can find it is on google play, which doesn't work with the kindles. Is the kindle not supported or can I get the app from somewhere else. Thanks.
you don't need the app - just check the available wireless networks, select BTWIFI and then connect. sign in to BT broadband customer using your primary bt email address ****@btinternet.com and password. sub accounts do not work
After you've logged in once, do you have to type your user details in every time after that, when you find a hotspot. The app seems to find a hot spot and signs you in automatically.
not sure how kindle works but my S2 will log on to BTWIFI when I am out and about without any need to login. you can try when you are out but if kindle can remember logon then probably will just connect
Having difficuly with my Kindle HD WIFI. iT SEEMS THAT EVERYTIME i WANT TO ACCESS MY EMAILS I have to input my details (security). As I am very slow and make many mistakes in inputting the details I, many a time just give up! My fingers tips seem to be too clumsy. Is there any way around this by not having to imput the details every time?
I did try to download the app( Like SeanJ) but without success.
Hi and welcome.
Sorry I can't help with with the app and Wi-Fi,
but as regards inputting details have you tried a Touch Screen Stylus
I have arthritis in my fingers and find them invaluable for touch screens.
They are relatively cheap these days.
I don't know the Kindle set up but have you checked within the email settings to see if there is a box to tick that will remember your logon details. While it might not be as secure, if you are the only user then it might be worth less security for the convenience of not having to constantly sign in.
Regarding the stylus' for tablets. can I just mention they come in all sorts of sizes. I have one that is about the thickness of a small ballpoint pen and another that is chunky like a joiners marker / pencil the chunky one is better for my arthritic hands. Both were bought from Amazon...
Hope this helps.
I have tried to access the live player on a Kindle Fire using the system recommended by imjolly, but I get a message saying "This video is not available on this device". At present I cannot use Smart Tv, my kindle, or my PC to use the live player. In the case of Smart TV and PC the problem I think lies with Silverlight, which Smart TV does not have, and my PC runs Linux Ubuntu and the Moonlight clone of Silverlight can be installed, but does not seem to work. Very frustrating!
