Kindle Fire Has an Feedback App.

I don't know if anyone as seen this but if you go into settings. you will see Help & Feedback on the menu.
Hitting it will install an app on your Fire that can be found in Apps.

There is a feedback option that let's you send feedback directly to Amazon.

Everyone please start using this feature! This is the only way we are going to get things fixed.

I've already send one about Sideloading books other then USB doesn't show up unless you Restart the device. Those who also have this issue please do the same. So they can fix it.

It only takes a moment to do this. My next one will be on the brightness and carousel.

Someone with Kids send your complaints about lack of Parental controls.

I really like this feature!

I'm going to ask for Sepia with black text! I know this'll be ignored, but it'll make me feel proactive.

Seriously, of all the things we've been discussing on this board for the last three days that's the one thing you'd ask them for?

It's good to know there's a feedback app though, and I'm certainly going to make use of it.

Well, I know no one else probably will. So, instead of me grumbling about it, I'll ask.

It's a bit buggy so before you submit your feedback you might want to copy the text so you wont have to resubmit it. That way if does get stuck you can go back and paste it instead of retyping it. You can do this with a long press on the text box then choose select all\long press again\copy.

Fire already has that option. Click the middle of an eBook page \ Aa. Then you are offered Black print on a white background, White print on a black background AND black print on a sepia background.

Also, from the home page click on Setting \ Brightness and adjust it to any level you want. I have mine at 40%.

Thank you. The Sepia doesn't have black text though. That's my issue. It's a light brown text. You really notice the brown when the brightness is up.The same as the Android app. I've looked at many apps with Sepia and the norm is black text. I don't know why they decided to get creative with it and do their own thing. Also, the Sepia's tone is lighter than what you find elsewhere (more of a yellow tinge). I can deal with it, if it had black text.

I place a cover on my screen to help reduce the brightness, unfortunately I lost some of the clarity. But it's functional.

You mean a screen protector?

While you're at it ask for green on black.
