Kindle Fire owners have been frustrated with not being able to receive blogs on the Kindle Fire as they can with their other Kindle devices. With this app, the problem is solved as it is optimized for your Kindle Fire as well as other Android-based tablets and phones.
Michael Gallagher is the author of several bestselling Kindle “how-to” guides, and his title “Free Kindle Books and How to Find Them” has been the #1 Kindle reference guide for over two years, garnering #53 and #72 on the Top 100 Kindle bestseller lists in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
This app has saved me so much money and provided so many apps and books which really helps to keep me from breaking the bank account. Best of all, it includes the descriptions/summaries for the selected products. I especially appreciate that it usually lists the genre and Amazon review rating, which enables me to quickly identify the items I'm interested in.
At that point I click on those which pique my curiosity to reach the Amazon page and analyze in more detail, especially scanning.negative reviews, and select those I wish to "purchase". I use other sources as well but this is my daily go-to app for filling my Fire.
Especially helpful is that the author almost always has read the books or used the apps he recommends and only picks from ratings of 4 stars or above, unlike so many other sources.
And don't forget the tips, especially if you want to get the most out of you device, they are invaluable. You can search his website to find previous tips as well.
Also always keep in mind that Amazon and authors can change pricing at ANY time, so heed the bloggers warning and verify the pricing before you click the buy option.
Now you can take all that money you saved and get that item you couldn't cost-justify. Win-win!
PS - My Fire has hundreds of apps and books as I read at least 5 per week and use my Fire all the time.
I own this app for months. I wasn't planning on reviewing it, but today I visited the apps store to check if I'm really using this app for free. In today's blog, to which this app sends me when I klick on it, Mr. Gallagher mentioned that people who subscribe to his blog pay 99 cents a month for the information on it. Amazon's pricing, not his BTW. So I ran to make sure my FREE is really FREE. Well, it was and a free upgrade was waiting for me, too. From now on I will be able to see the book covers, which will help me remember if I have the book already, or not yet. I also saw the reviews. Some were soooo venomous, I decided to add my own opinion to the collection, and maybe help clarify this and that. The app is MAGNIFICENT!!!!! Mr. Michael publishes daily an information about books that Amazon is making available for free on that day. Yes, you can find that information by yourself, but it is a time consuming process, and involves quality presorting. What is delivered in this app/blog is never less than four star book. That provides an incredible, time - saving shortcut. Also, if you check the app regularly, you will not miss time sensitive books, those that are free only for few hours. And NO (young Emily Roach of one star judgement), they aren't books for "old people". Every single genre and category is represented. I have a very strange and stubborn approach toward my Kindle. I DON'T spend money on it. I got it as a gift, that included 50 dollars card. In 8 month's time I spent 11. That is on apps AND books. And Mr. Gallaghar is responsible for 6 of them. I couldn't resist certain Amazon specials he informed about (like Michael J. Fox's. autobiography discounted to two dollars on that day). Before this app I collected about 800 books in few languages. Mostly old reliable classics. After Mr. Michael I collected about 400 more. Too much??? Maybe. But I'm independent of Internet and I have a choice of best quality. After all nor all one buys is truly best. Thank you Mr. G. Thank you very much.
You get from 5 to sometimes 15 free book offers a day. Not all the books are the greatest, but he gives you the review and everything so you can decide whether you want to get the book or not. You can get emails, or click on the app and read it on your device, or you read via his blog or rss feed.
Just a warning though, be sure the book is still free, before clicking the button. Sometimes the offers last a day, sometimes several days.
This is an excellent resource for people who read a lot and want to save money on books. What makes this different from other blogs/free book sources is that it will only show books that are rated 4 stars or higher. This is a great feature, since I won't read a book that is 3 stars or less even if it is free. There seems to be a couple of posts everyday and book selections are broken down by category (Romance, Thriller, Mystery, Non Fiction, Kids, etc). It will post Freebies as well severely discounted books. Best to check daily since the Freebies are only for the current day. I have saved a ton of money using this app and recommend it to everyone.
This app is a mobile version of their blog. It is basically a text list of free books on Amazon each day with blurbs and a quick scored reviews summary (4.5 stars out of 5 with 37 reviews). The best part of the list is that it includes direct links to Amazon for quick download to Kindle.
This is a great free app for info on how to get free Kindle content.
