Newbie questions!

Hello Kindle people,
Hi i'm Trevrev, and i'm new to the boards.
I've just purchased a Fire HD for my son, it's registered to me using my Amazon account. I've just found out you can't switch off 1 click payment on it, which is annoying! Gone for password on purchases on that one.
Unless Amazon have changed this, aand i've missed it somewhere.

Couple of questions. Can you install apps purchased from the Amazon app store, onto other devices without having to pay again?

On my other sons device, which isn't a fire HD, i went through the Amazon app store to get him a purchase, and it usually prompts me to go into my account and turn on 1 click payment. But since i've registered the FireHD i don't get this prompt anymore and it just downloads. Am i doing something wrong? 1 click is off by the way!

Last question, can you download Google playstore onto the Fire HD?.......You get better free games apparently!

Thanks for you help, i'm sure i'll have loads more newbie type questions soon....Blush

RE: Newbie questions!

I haven't got one, but played about with my nephew's. I managed to adjust the parental settings on the Fire to not allow him to buy anything from the Fire. However I couldn't turn off the one click. But I figured the nephew wouldn't think to go to amazon to buy anything as it seemed much easier doing it from the "fire store".
In any case, you'll get emails for every one-click purchase so will know straight away (or whenever you check your emails) if there's been a purchase.

RE: Newbie questions!

If your devices are all linked to the same Amazon account, then you will be able to download and use the apps without paying for them again, so this would probably explain not seeing the 1-click.

It isn't possible to use Google Play on the Kindle Fire as the Kindle Fire has customised Android software which doesn't have some of the required libraries on it, plus Amazon would block it anyway.

RE: Newbie questions!

Thanks for your input guys.
My son isn't happy about the google play thing. Sometimes you can't do right for doing wrong.
It was a toss up between the Fire HD and the Nexus. It seems i got it wrong!
