BT Wifi on Kindle

There doesn't appear to be a BT Wifi app in the Amazon Store. What's the best way of connecting when out and about on Kindle Fire. Anyone done this?

It does help. It would just be nice to have the features of auto connecting that the app does. Do you plan to upload the android app to the Amazon store?

 

Many thanks

Hi Stuart

 

I don't plan on doing it as I'm just a customer like yourselfSmiley Wink

 

You could raise the idea in the forum ideas bank - http://community.bt.com/t5/Ideas-Bank/idb-p/IdeasBank - and BT may consider it.

Unfortunately, a user cannot place any apps on the Kindle, cos it dont have any Smiley Sad

 

The best you can do is with what is already in the o/s, not forgetting to put a bookmark in Project Gutenburg for the free books on the Kindles's browser.

I assume you're talking about the Kindle e-reader as opposed to the Kindle Fire the OP mentioned which is a 7 inch Android tablet on which the UI has been shelled by Amazon. There are oodles of Apps available in the Amazon store. Although the KF is tied to the Amazon store a brief web search for "Kindle Fire sideload" shows that provided you can lay your hands on the .apk file you may well be able to install the app up to and including replacing the shell.
