5.0 out of 5 stars Trick to installing on Kindle Fire October 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
HOORAY! JW Library is now available for your Kindle Fire. I installed it on my first edition Fire and it runs just fine, except for KIT, as noted below. I am leaving the comments on sideloading, in case they might prove helpful to someone in the future. In the meantime, we can now enjoy this fine Bible study app that contains multiple translations, extensive footnotes and references, plus a plethora of additional helpful information. And there is the promise of a constantly expanding library that may include other languages in the future. Further, it is all for free and always will be!

FOR HISTORICAL REFERENCE: (the substance of my original comment)

How to sideload JW Library. The procedure is not for the faint of heart nor the computer novice. It involves 3 steps: (1) Preparing your Kindle; (2) getting the needed files; and (3) completely installing the app. You also need some software tools: a large file share service (such as DropBox), a file explorer (such as ES File Explorer or PowerGrasp), and possibly a root explorer (such as Root Explorer). However, BE WARNED, you may mess things up on your Kindle, so please understand that you do this at your own risk!

STEP 1: Prepare your Kindle. By default, Amazon turns off the ability to sideload apps. To turn it on, click on the "gear" symbol in the upper right of your screen to get "Settings", click on "More", and then scroll down to "Device". Scroll down to "Allow Installation of Applications From Unknown Sources" and turn it ON.

STEP 2: Get the needed files. Another reviewer noted that you can use the "1 Mobile Market" app to do so. This is only partially correct, and it does have some "gotchas".

Seems compatible with every one of my other Android devices but the app needs to add the resolution support for the Kindle Devices.'s a new word they used, instead of "long suffering".

jw library stopped working
That happened to me when there had been some type of update. I deleted the app from my kindle and reinstalled it. I had to do that twice but after that it worked fine.
