Not supported on 7" kindle fire hdx
on January 1, 2014
I recently got a kindle fire hdx and was hoping to get this subscription on my new device but apparently it's not supported on the new devices. Or at least not on the 7 inch tablet. I ordered a free trial of this magazine through the amazon store on my kindle and had trouble downloading the current trial issue. After a couple of calls to customer service and quite a bit of my own time trying to troubleshoot I was told that Oxygen doesnt currently support my version of the kindle fire.
Now after going back to the magazine subscription page again to take a look i saw the tiny little arrow that has a drop down menu listing which devices are supported, so maybe it's partially my fault as well for not reading the fine print, but i assumed a new gen device could handle it. Either way I'm giving Oxygen a 3 star review because I like the magazine, I'm just disappointed that I can't read it on my new kindle. I also wanted to hopefully save someone else the hassle of trying to download a magazine that isnt compatible with the newer devices. I guess I'll just have to get this magazine through another source for now.
