Kindle Fire HD 7", Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 16 GB

I think Amazon should include an instagram app to enhanse the camera usage and to provide users to use this app on the kindle fire hd instead of getting an android or ios phone. If this get into consideration i will use it all the time. What do you people out there think?

I think the people who make Instagram has to add it to the Amazon Appstore. I personally hate it when apps are added to Android devices as part of the default set up and can't be removed.

I bought the InstaFire app and it doesn't even have a take or upload picture function. No other photo apps upload to Instagram from the kindle either ):

I upgraded to the kfhd because I thought I would enjoy apps like instagram. I am very disappointed that about every other tablet can get this app except the kfhd!!! this is ridiculous .. PLEASE ADD IT TO THE APP STORE!!!!!

I definitely agree with some of you on the price. On every other device instagram is free but in the amazon store its like $3. It makes no sense at all. I think they're just out for money to be honest. But hopefully at some point they do make it free. Atleast for a month& watch how many costumers get it then

Instagram's API doesn't allow for uploading pix, which is why the Kindle Fire version is a "VIEW ONLY"'s in the description of EVERY IG app in the Amazon Appstore....

I was able to sideload a fully functioning Instagram app to my KF HD 8.9 using instructions found on H2Tech's youtube channel - able to upload pics and everything. I can't post a link to the video, but if you search for it you should be able to find it.

There's a process called sideloading where you can install any app from the google play market on to the kindle fire. It doesn't require any modifications. I created an easy tutorial on how to install instagram onto your kindle fire.

hi Eric im brooke I know the app store dosent have an INSTAGRAM app so download (file manager free) after u get on there go on to and download instagram free, after u download it go on your app file manager and there should be the word instagram (it will be it's own file) click that's it every time u want to get on instagram u will need to pic I install then it will say something that u don't need to worry about, then push open and done your on instagram I hope u have fun if u have any questions ask me and follow me at (myloveforwolves)
