What type of leisure activity do you practice on the KFire

I'm curious about what new Kindle Fire users are actually doing with the new gadget....

Share your opinion or experience with us ...

I picked mixed, as I really use it for all those things. I also plan to use it for mobile document editing.

Mostly for reading in my case, but a close second is browsing the web when away from my computer.

For me it's about 70% reading including books, NYT and graphic novels. In that I also count "social news" that I get through Google reader. Then about 20% for web and 10% email. No games for me.

Mixed here. Primarily reading (books, mags, news), then video, audio (Slacker cached radio stations, podcasts), little web browsing. I haven't played any games yet.

I use mine for listening to music. It makes a great desktop radio if you own TuneIn Pro. It doesn't use much battery at all.

I also use it for Reading. I use Mantano as my default reading app. It's an epub reader but it allows me to change the background color and brightness of the book so I can read comfortable. I do this before bed each night. Read about 3 to 5 chapters so I can wind down and sleep.

I surf alot. Facebook works great on Silk. I use the Pulse app for my Google reader and so I can up to date on my RSS feeds and then I have Opera Mobile for other surfing sites that Silk doesn't like. I also listen to podcasts.

I have watched a few videos and played Angry birds when I am bored.

I even use it for recipes. I use Google docs for my recipes so I can use the Quick Office app to access them when I am cooking.

Reading and a few games.

Have to watch out not to load too many games to it, or it will share the same tragic fate as my iPad - claimed by my kids for playing and no longer available for me for reading.

Best regards,
Andy

As a musical instrument , drawing, radio, magazines, managing my finances, observing the weather, document editing, reading comics/books, and gaming.

Just typical stuff really.

reading mostly, inclusive of reading this forum. have also really really been enjoying Pandora. picked one guitarists i like and in about 40 nonconsecutive hours it has yet to goof on style or genre of "similar" musicians even covering. loosely 5 decades of choices.
