Netflix, Pandora and more available on Fire

Amazon has officially announced some of the apps that will be available next week for the fire.

That's great news. It makes the Fire a lot more attractive to me. I'm assuming no official Hulu Plus app though.

This is great news, and shows that Amazon is willing to give consumers some choices for content (Netflix, Pandora, etc.), even if those services compete with their services.

Hopefully they will allow alternate readers like Aldiko and Mantano as well...

Hopefully, it's just not yet. I don't use Hulu a lot, but it'd still be nice to have the app available.

I'm surprised to see Netflix there. Well, it looks like B&N got to them. Maybe there's hope for Blockbuster, Hulu Plus, Zinio, and maybe a few Google apps?

Aldiko, Kobo and Mantano are all available from the Amazon Appstore. That means you should easily be able to install them on the Fire.

I sent Amazon an email back in September regarding the lack of good comic readers in the Amazon Appstore (Perfect Viewier, in particular) and how they should reach out to developers to submit their apps to Amazon. Less than a month later, Perfect Viewer (albeit costs $3) was available.

Zinio & Hulu+ I wouldn't mind. I subscribe to several mags on zinio. Hulu + I could go either way. I have it on my iPad.

I went into the Apps store and when you click on
Mantano ereader: check mark with "Kindle Fire" noted as my device;
Aldiko ereader: X marked with "Kindle Fire" marked.

I really really hope they've just overlooked it, as I love using Aldiko ...

Including my Nook Color. Thank you, Amazon

I don't see a check mark or X. Do you have to have an Android device registered in order to see that on an app's product page, or am I misunderstanding? How can you tell if an app in the Amazon Appstore will work on a particular device? For example, here's the link to Mantano Reader. When I visit that page from my computer, I don't see specific devices mentioned.

I do, probably because I have already an android tablet. But it does specify "Kindle Fire" when I run a search on "epub". And so far, Aldiko is the only app I found with an "x" instead of checkmark

It's right under the "Buy now with 1-click"

You need a registered Android device.

You might have to root to get it. My rooted Nook Color is compatible with it.
