I have the 1st Gen Fire, and am looking to upgrade, but have a couple of questions, which customer service was surprisingly unable to answer, neither by phone nor by email. They're usually excellent, but I guess there are new people for the holidays, on the phone there was definitely a tech-gap, and possibly a language issue as well. But I digress ....
Anyway, this should be easy enough for anyone with an HD in their hands.
My first question is about *app* storage space. On my Fire, you tap on the tools icon in the upper right, then select More, and go to Device, where it shows both the Application Storage amt (1.17GB) and the Internal Storage amt (5.37GB).
What does your HD Fire say? Ideally I'd like to hear from both 16GB and 32GB owners, to see whether there's a difference, and if so, how much.
My second question is regarding transferring apps. The HD description talks about Whispersync for Apps -- does this work retroactively, preserving your app data from a previous installation? (I know I can download a "blank" app from the cloud, I'm asking about the data specific to you: reminders in a calendar app, game levels, etc.) Or does the Whispersync only work forward, for apps installed onto the HD?
Finally, when an app that works on regular Fire is "not compatible" with the HD, does that mean it's completely unusable? Or will the graphics just not be as good as they otherwise would be?
Any of your HD experiences would be greatly appreciated.
