Why isn't the Overdrive app available for Kindle Fire?

I just wasted an hour on the phone with my library media person telling me how easy checking out audio books on my Kindle Fire would be as soon as I installed the OverDrive app. Can't be done.

I suspect it's not available because Amazon prefers we use and buy expensive Audible books.

Jana, I don't think that is it considering that my local library uses Overdrive and on most books that I check out Overdrive will send me to Amazon to download it. Amazon is already working with Overdrive to send the books to my Kindle Fire so I wonder why the app is not available?

When I selected the app it listed my smartphone and my Kindle Fire HD as compatible. Now however it doesn't show on my Fire at all. When I try to "purchase" it directly from my Fire, it says I already own this and to check my Library. Big FAIL.

[UPDATE] I removed the purchase, then from my Kindle Fire HD I when to the Apps Store and "purchased" OverDrive Media Console again. That allowed me to add it to my Kindle and it works fine.

I did the same thing on my Kindle fire, and it worked.-- just delete the purchase and re-purchase it.

I have uninstalled and re-installed over 4 times. I must be doing something wrong. After you install the app is there something special that needs to be done? I can get the books to read. I just can't download the audio books. Any suggestions? Thanks.
