Top critical review
it's free and can read PDF files
on May 17, 2014
The subject of this pretty much sums up why this is on my system. Since the Kindle won't work with almost any other keyboard, that small microphone icon found on the Google keyboard isn't available. The only way I would even attempt to create a document on a Kindle of more than a few words is if I could install Google's voice recognition keyboard and the "Google Now" app. But these aren't available on the Amazon app store. And while there are ways of hacking your Kindle so you can add Google's own app store so you aren't just stuck with the limited Amazon store, I don't want to take any chances of messing up the operating system that is on there. So I just use my Kindle Fire as an entertainment center and not for any kind of productivity use. However, at times I do check my e-mail and again, the reason I installed Polaris Office is because it opens PDF files with no problems (which is how I usually ask people to send any text-based attachments to me).
I also don't find Polaris Office to be terribly intuitive and with the power and size of the Kindle Fire, there is certainly enough screen size to make something that is visually a lot more user friendly.
