Because this is an Android based tablet, there are plenty of App Resources on the Web. To their credit, Amazon did not block any of them. Here are just a few places you can download Apps directly using the Stock Browser. Many of these sites offer App Store or Marketplace Apps that can be installed directly on the Fire. When you download the App Store or Marketplace App you will need to touch the Notification Bar on the top of the Fire and press the App to launch the installation. These are all reputable Android App websites and I visit them frequently with my other Android tablets.

Other great sites for Apps:

Select Android Device. When downloading Apps from Freeware Lovers you will have to press Click Here on the Downloading Page to initiate the download. To install downloaded App touch the Notification Bar on the top of the Fire and then touch the downloaded App to launch the install.
Panda App: http://download.pandaapp.com/?app=so...roller=android

All of these Apps are Free. I expect the Fire will be a supported device in short order and you will be able to take full advantage of everything Handango has to offer.
