I just got a free app that I got from the Amazon web site from my computer. This is the first time I have done this from my computer, not my Kindle. How do I get it to my Kindle now? I see all this talk about Sync but I have no idea how to do that. Can someone help me please.

What model Kindle do you have?

Ok, to do a sync, put your finger on the top of the screen and swipe down. If your internet connection is not turned on, tap to turn it on. Tap the back arrow. Tap settings. Tap where it says Sync. (what a sync does is let the Fire "talk" to the Amazon server and download the apps, books, and whatever other content you have sent to it). Tap the Home key. Tap apps. You should see the one you ordered. Tap it and it will open.

See that is the problem, I do not have anything that says settings. I found the Sync button and tapped it but all it did was download an app I already had one the device. Oh my God this is frustrating.

Go to Apps. Select Cloud instead of Device. You should find the app that you bought on your computer. tap it to download to your Kindle.

Oh it's there now. Either I just missed it or it wasn't there before. Thanks for your help.
