Not expecting a lot of answers. I side loaded Good onto my HDX but the Good icon is not showing up in Apps or the home page carousel. Worked fine on the HD 8.9, side loaded also. Removed and reloaded several times, same issue though. The Amazon version is from Jan 2012 and the side loaded version is as of November 2013, so it is the latest version. Because it is in persistent mode I can get to it when I pull down the settings menus at the top of the screen. It is under Settings/Applications/Manage All Apps but not under Settings/Notifications. I have several other side loaded apps that work fine and display in Apps and the carousel like DropBox, Cisco WebEx (Amazon version not compatible with HDX yet), MyAtt, Ookla SpeedTest and Zino. Let me know if anyone else has seen this problem.

I have found that if an app is not compatible with the HDX, though they do on other kindles, the app will not appear on the HDX on the device or the cloud. I found this on an app on my original Fire that did not show up on my HDX.

Thanks. Maybe I'll ping Good and ask them if they can look into it.

Mystery solved. I just needed to delete the Amazon version from the cloud and the icons for the side loaded version appeared in both the App tab and the carousel. Trial and error sometimes pays off.

Is the Good for Enterprise app working on the HDX? I have seen posts suggesting that it does not allow emails to be opened, etc.

If the thing has to be side loaded, the odds are that it is not meant to work on a Kindle. If you do side load it, and it doesn't work, that is to be expected. Does boring out the carb on a Ford Pinto make it run like an Aston-Martin DB6? Why bother with such trial, and error? If you want an Aston-Martin, why not just buy an Aston-Martin?

I have that problem. When I try to open an email I get a message that reads "message no longer exists". Anyone have any idea how to fix this or when GOOD will release an update?

I am also experiencing this issue and it also appears to block me from opening attachments in the e-mail. Is there an update from Amazon or Good on when the latest version will be available for download?

Sounds like you will need to contact Good. They modify/improve the app. Amazon just resells it.
