I got a nice HD 8.9 inch Kindle Fire a few weeks ago, and I love it! Here is a list of fun things you can do with a Kindle Fire.
1. Get a stylus. When you buy the Kindle, there is an option to purchase a stylus to go with it. I highly recommend this, as the stylus makes it much easier to navigate, and also keeps you from getting fingerprints all over your Kindle Fire.
2. Buy books on a country that interests you. Is there a country you have always wanted to visit? Or are planning on visiting soon? For me, that would be Austria. As a student, I’m planning to do a study abroad next year in Austria. So, I have downloaded a book on Austria, and also a book on Europe, as I hope to travel in Europe while I am staying in Austria. What country are you interested in?
3. Draw pictures. Drawing and coloring can be a very relaxing and enjoyable way to spend time on your Kindle. With a stylus, drawing becomes quite fun. There are several drawing programs available for the Kindle Fire. I use Drawing Pad, which has brushes, pencils, stencils, crayons, and a great range of color. My connection is not good right now, but later I will upload a couple of my drawings.
3. Play games. There are many games available for the Kindle Fire through the Amazon app store. However, there are fewer games available than if you had a Nexus and access to the Google play store. I currently have 3 games on my Kindle Fire: Pocket Tangrams, Draw a Stickman, and My Little Pony. All three are fun and make use of the Kindle’s lovely HD screen.
4. Surf the interwebs. The Kindle Fire has a great web browser. 3G connectivity is only $50 a year for the Kindle Fire, too, because Amazon is awesome.
5. Watch a movie. As an Amazon Prime subscriber, I have access to tons of free movies and TV shows. Also, I have a YouTube viewer app that works great, so long as the video is not too long.
6. Read! After all, it IS a Kindle! I have a lot of books on my Kindle already, and have found I am reading much more than I used to. It’s good for you, and fun too! I am reading books on Java, C#, and personal finance for people in their 20’s. I also have magazine subscriptions to 2600 and Wired. I’ve been reading a lot of books by Richard Wiseman, a psychologist from Great Britain who writes very accessible and interesting books that refer to actual research studies to give advice and share information.
7. Listen to music! The Kindle has very nice speakers, and you can buy music in the Amazon store.
This concludes my list of fun things to do with a Kindle Fire. So yeah, if you have one, or are getting one, definitely try some of these out.
