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.
Michael Gallagher's Free Kindle Books and Tips has become an invaluable resource for so many of us. This version is optimized and beautifully formatted for the Kindle Fire and other Android-compatible devices, and it offers immediate updates to the #1 Kindle Blog, "Free Kindle Books, and Tips," with its frequent daily updates. It's excellent in that you can click directly to the free book offerings from Amazon using the Kindle Fire, and it's synchronization to the Free Kindle Books and Tips blog makes it a pleasure to use.
This app is optimized for the Kindle Fire and other Android-compatible devices. It may be confusing, but please note that this one is different from the Free Kindle Books and Tips, which is only available as a subscription on the following devices:
As I also have an older Kindle 2 that is used when I'm commuting because of it's 3G wireless connection, I've maintained my subscription on that one as well. In my January 2012 review of that subscription, I stated: "There are many sources for finding what we fondly refer to as those "Kindle freebies" that appear daily, but Michael Gallagher's daily Free Kindle Books Plus a Few Other Tips blog has proven to be an invaluable resource to those who peruse the titles of the free book offerings. And don't let anyone kid you, the freebies here will often surprise you with their quality of content."
Those same thoughts apply to this newer Free Kindle Books and Tips app for the Kindle Fire, and if anything it just seems to get better and more proactive to our needs as readers over time. What I like is that this Kindle blog is not just another online link to a list of titles, as are some. Mr. Gallagher's postings also include frequent insider tips and helpful information that help to use your Kindle Fire, and these are designed for novices to experienced users alike.
His original subscription service has been and still is ranked as the top Kindle subscription blog since 2010 for good reason, and this one for the Kindle Fire and Android-compatible devices, and it's highly recommended. For this reader, it's a 5-star resource for the Kindle Fire.
Great source for finding free and low cost kindle books. The selections are moderated and the app presents high rated and interesting books on offer every day. Saves me lots of time in finding a good read without the effort of browsing amazon or other sources and using lots of 'clicks'.
This is an infuriating app. When i saw it in the App Store, I thought it was perfect for keeping my Kindle books all together. After downloading it i expected to see instructions and settings. Instead there was a constant roll of adverts with a link to a webpage. I did work it out, and I am pleased with it. Should you download it, be prepared, unless I was being particularly stupid.
Thought I would give back for all the deals I have found by writing a review... The kindle store on my kindle fire used to post a top 100 free section but I no longer can view this. I had to start looking for other sources to help me find some free/cheap deals (I am a poor grad student who likes to read when I am not swamped with reading for school!) This app helps me fast track to reading free books. Also he screens the books he posts for quality, which helps narrow options down. Still not every book is a keeper but it helps. He gives the dates they are free until. It helps to know about books that will only be free for a short amount of time, might not find them otherwise. You can't expect to find something specific or recognize authors but for easy leisure reading this app is so helpful!!!
... for a Kindle Fire User, it's a great find. Yes, I could go on my computer or through the Kindle's browser to look at the blog or search other free book sites but this is much easier. I tap the app and get to see what the latest offerings are on the blog. No Kindle keyboard typing required!
One of the complaints I saw was that it doesn't list all the free books out there. I, for one, would never expect something like that! There are too many out there and the price changes regularly on some. The author offers a small sampling, but a wide variety. They don't all interest me, but there are more than enough that do.
I like that the blog author gives rating, genre and summary, as well as his own thoughts if it's. a book he's previously read. It's a great thumbnail to some hidden gems.
I haven't paid for a book for my Kindle Fire since the day I downloaded this app! I log on everyday to see what new free books I can discover. He only suggests books with a rating of 4 stars and above and they span all of the different genres. Free books I would never have looked for myself are now packaged in one neat blog and are just a click away. Simply Awesome!
