I installed the trial version directly from the Amazon app store. Don't won't to spend even $1 on apps until I decided if I will keep the Fire HD. But I think the Fire HD GUI works a little differently than I remember of the one on the original Fire. To view the notification area and menus within Kindle app you tap near the top of the screen, just like before. To view anything that is in the notification area you now have to place you finger on the top of the screen and drag down. This doesn't open another window or a popup, it does cause a dark veil curtain that is slightly transparent to slide down and cover the screen and reveals what is in the notification area. Tapping on Screen Dim brings it up in its own full size window. There is no popup. When finished adjusting, you tap back to return to the book.



BTW: As you can see the screen is not anti-glare as advertised and it is quite a magnet for fingerprints and dust.
