Does anyone know if the YouTube app will be coming to the kindle fire in the near future? Somthing else that would be nice to see is a decent maps app on the kindle fire.

Of course Google will not put up the YouTube app on Amazon its number one competitor. I wouldn't count on Google maps either.

Well Apple is Android's number one competitor and the YouTube app is on the app store along with Google Maps.

Ask Google then since they are the ones who have to put the apps up. Apple really isn't a competitor since you can only get iPad apps from Apple and Android apps will not work on them.

Apple really isn't a direct competitor with Google as the Apple devices are a different operating system.

Amazon Fire is a Android device and Google has thier own Android tablet the Nexus.

There are some third party youtube apps, plus m.youtube.com works great as it only lists non-flash videos.

Rumor is that Amazon is working with Nokia on using Nokia maps. Rumor.

I wonder if there is any chance Amazon would build its own youtube app like Microsoft is doing for Windows phone.

You can easily get the YouTube app from 1mobile:

It works fine on my Fire.
