Can you download Android Apps like "Go Launcher" to your Kindle Fire without sideloading it from a start phone? If so how.
Thanks

Mr. A. Ward says:
You can down load it to your computer then attach it to an email and send it to your self.
ON YOUR FIRE HD, GO TO "Settings", "Device" - and Check "Allow installation of applications from unknown sources".
DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL ES FILE EXPLORER TO YOUR FIRE HD (LINK BELOW):
ES File Explorer
http://download.estrongs.com/app-es-file-explorer.html

Access the email you sent your self on your Kindle fire hd/Fire and download the attached file to your kindle.
OPEN ES FILE EXPLORER:
TAP THE "DOWNLOAD" FOLDER
TAP THE DOWNLOADED APP ICON AND TAP YES TO INSTALL

Mr. A. Ward says:
that is most bizarre if you followed the instructions then it should work to forcing a
Stop and restarting the app.

Kindle installed it but after it was installed the open button is grayed out. It show installed in the apps installed area. It is not in the apps were you click to open them.

Mr. A. Ward says:
Go into settings click more then click applications and then installed apps check in there if it's present force a stop and then restart app. Did you allow installation of applications if not then it won't install directly I can't help anymore then that I had no problem and it works fine.
