Book Description


”I have gone through a number of books like this one, and most of them are pretty much the same. This is the one you want… Personally, I will check out any book this author writes about apps because, for some reason, maybe a bad case of OCD, he is obviously compelled to do the most thorough investigation into each and every aspect, good and bad of apps in a particular genre. My hat's off to him, and he has my thanks for saving me a ton of time and grief.” - Linda Abbott (Reviewer)

    5.0 out of 5 stars A wealth of helpful information January 13, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Apps are one of the reasons why I bought the original Kindle Fire, and now with a Kindle Fire HD 7", I still use a lot of apps - mostly games but also a number of utilities and productivity apps. To decide which apps to try, I rely largely on Amazon descriptions and reviews, online blogs and websites, and word-of-mouth. "Free Kindle Fire Apps That Don't Suck" is only the second book of its type that I've read, and although my expectations weren't too high, I gleaned quite a bit of helpful information from it. The biggest part (almost 60%) of the book consists of game apps, with representative arcade games, board games, card games, mind games, logic games, and word games. There's a separate chapter devoted to kids apps (for children as young as two years old), including educational apps, animated books, English language, and arithmetic. The next section of the book covers productivity apps, which included drawing and image editing, cooking, calendars, health and fitness, messaging, music/sound, news/weather, reference, social networking, and other non-game apps.

    All of the apps listed in the book were free at the time the book was published, so in many cases, the app will be a limited version of a paid app, or the app will have ads. Most of the well known mega-hits like Angry Birds, Temple Run, and Fruit Ninja are included, but I found a lot of game apps that were highly rated that I had never heard of. At first I was disappointed to not find some of my favorites like Scrabble, but I looked them up, and there are no free versions at this time. (That can change, of course, and that's one downside to books like this - they can't reflect recent changes.)

    In the introduction, the author lists the criteria that he used to select the top free apps.

    5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT AN EYE OPENER!! January 28, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    FIVE stars is a must for this highly educational book that has kept me occupied for the last 5 plus hours! I am not a tech geek so I find most technical information hard to grasp, that was mostly not the case with this book and it's straightforward, simplistic approach. I have amassed quite a number of apps and games and have generally made those purchases based upon the REVIEWS attached! I now find out that even those can't be trusted all the time! If for no other reason that fact alone makes me very happy that someone who has such great knowledge in this area would spend hundreds of hours testing each app, then compiling the results to pass on to me and others that may be just as clueless., and you do all this for a mere 99 cents!!

    As I closed the last page I Was delighted to see that The App Bible had more books available, I promptly purchased the three that suited my needs, for 99 cent each of course and look forward to learning more!

    Happy hunting and many sincere thanks. I'm going appt shopping!

    I spent the better part of last night reading about Free Kindle Fire Apps, and then looked at about 20 of the ones I thought would interest me. I expected this to be heavily into gaming, and contrary to other reviews, I was wrong. I've had my KF for over a year, and I'm a little worn out on games and, in fact, apps in general. An app really has to be special to remain on my Kindle. I didn't find many listed in this book, but that shouldn't dissuade anyone from getting it. There are worthwhile apps written about, and the book is organized well. The Sections or Chapters are:

    Game Apps (then broken down into arcade, mind, etc.)
    Kid Apps (sorry, I skipped over these)
    Productivity Apps such as art, calendar, cooking, etc. (I still haven't found a calendar that's worthwhile.)
    Health and Fitness Apps (no thank you)
    Job Apps (I'm semi-retired thank heavens)
    Languages Apps (found two)
    Local Apps
    Math Apps (where were these when I was in high school?)
    Messaging Apps (I don't message: I email while I still have 10 fingers)
    Movie Apps (Some interesting apps here though I'm still waiting for them on HBO or Starz - which means another two years)
    Music Apps
    News (USA Today is a winner)
    Reference (All you really need is the Wiki App)
    Social Networking (I'm anti-social, but don't let that stop you)
    System Maintenance and Tools (which you could get from reading the text that comes with your Kindle)
    WiFi (Two Useful Apps, but my favorite is still amped|wireless by Wi-Fi Analytics)

    and then some suggestions.

    Not even considering the price (nothing), this is worthwhile.
