Alkido on Fire

I don't have a Kindle Fire. But a friend of my Mother-in-Law has a Kindle Fire. She's a novice for sure.

Question... I want to install Alkido so she can read ePub eBooks. How do I go about installing Alkido? The Fire is not rooted. Sonce installed, how do I go about putting books on for Alkido to display?

Thanks.

So once I have the Fire's settings correct, I then take the APK and copy it to the Fire via USB. Where on the Fire do I put the APK and how to I get it launched to be installed?

Once it's installed, how do I add eBooks to Alkido? Can I do so from Calibre or do I have to do is via USB?

The Fire comes with an Office program you can use that as a file explorer using the option browse. It doesn't matter where the apk goes. Once copied over you can navigate using the office program and then tap on the apk and it will install. Or you can get ES File Explorer from the app store to do the same.

To add epub just copy them over to a folder of your choice then open Aldiko and import them. You can use USB or LAN feature of ES File Explorer.

Thanks. When I get access to the Fire, I'll let you know how it went.

I second ES File Explorer. Excellent and very easy to use. You can create new folders and label them according to your needs (such as side-loaded applications). Not that your M-I-L might care, but it also contains a LAN tab for wireless transfer of files over one's WLAN with another computer/laptop.
