RE: Installing Apps on a UK Kindle Fire

My Kindle Fire HD was purchased from Amazon Spain. I tried to purchase on Amazon Uk but was directed to the Spanish site as I wanted it sent there for Christmas. My address and payments details are in the UK

I think that's the problem, there is confusion because you are now trying to download from the UK site. are you based permanently in Spain? if not, you can change your details over to your UK address on the Amazon Kindle account page.

Are you using an imported US Kindle Fire? These instructions are irrelevant if not.

RE: Installing Apps on a UK Kindle Fire

Hi all. New poster here.

I bought a US Kindle Fire without realising and whilst I've managed to download ES File Explorer successfully I still can't get the Amazon Apps app to open or appear on the homescreen despite several attempts at installing it. I have multiple copies in ES that I downloaded beforehand out of ignorance - is that the reason it won't work? Do I just need to start the process again from scratch or just put the Fire back on eBay?

Help (in idiot language) appreciated!! Kindle Sad

This may be because it all moved on but I just installed es explorer through the app store so I assume amazon have now allowed it
