4.0 out of 5 stars Wish I could use it on my kindle fire November 30, 2011
I love this app and use it often on my samsung epic. I am very disappointed that it's not available on the Kindle Fire. I don't like having to use the imo (i think i'm remembering that correctly) app just to be able to chat using yahoo messenger. Why not just let it be available for kindle fire?

1.0 out of 5 stars still not working September 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
The yahoo messenger for my kindle fire still does not work, it is downloaded on my kindle, but when I try to use it, it gives me an error message stating that my message did not go thru, an Amazon tech was suppose to look into it and get back to me, but I guess that's not gonna happen. So no I don't like my yahoo messenger since I can't use it. Thanks

This app is one I never use now because it constantly crashes. I can be chatting with someone on messenger for an hour or five minutes and all of a sudden it stops working and crashes my phone. I do not like it and do not use it now.

Kindle Fire
From what I'm seeing it can't be used on the Fire. I really hope they get an app for the Fire soon. I had really high hopes regarding apps when I got my Kindle but so far I've been disappointed in the number of apps available for it.
