Sorry, that's what I meant. Obviously the Playstore itself is only to install some apps:
K9 Email
Lichess
Lithium
Xodo
Pocketbook
Musicolet
Jota
Borrowbox (Bolinda)
Libby
Google's PlayBooks

I notice on the Likebook Boyue Mars that some apps need the Google Framework enabled, such as Playbooks. I expect the Apps that work on that Android with the Framework disabled in settings, will work on Fire 11 (or run but only fail to work properly even with it on because they don't work well with eink, such as every Solitaire I tried : D ). The Playstore and Google Speech Engine etc need the Framework enabled, though I couldn't get TTS working even with the Framework "on".

Libby is available in Amazon's App Store.

It's been awhile since I've shopped for Android apps. Looking for something that will facilitate wireless file transfers to the Fire from my Mac (for example .m4b), and ideally ask what I want to open it with.
