    Meh, their appstore sucks. I love amazon, but I don’t want another non-play-store-appstore that I also need to use to manage updates. Had it not been for the “Free App of the Day” thing they used to (do they still?) do, I’d never have installed it. It’s also why I won’t mess with the kindle fire, well that and the awful UI.
