Read about it and how to use it BEFORE you install it though.
You can switch back and forth from the GO Launcher to the Amazon launcher so you still have access to the free Prime Videos and Book Lending anbd Music Cloud Player as you want.
I don't think you can use Go Launcher on the current Fires (without rooting). You can use ADW launcher. I have it on my non-HD and it works fine.
