I have tried one note, and while you can make it work, it is like using wordplay, very clunky.

I looked at the reviews for it and they made me very skeptical of its functionality. In addition, paying $15 for another program, that seems to have issues of compatibility seems silly. In reality, this is simply an Amazon decision to force purchase of yet about her app.

Would Microsoft OneNote work in your situation? It's available for Fires, although I'm not sure which models.

My biggest issue is the lack of access to Microsoft Office 365 online. I am a college student who has an account via my school. I spend 2+ hours each day on the bus in transit. I can use my phone as a mobile hotspot, and do research, BUT I CAN'T TAKE ANY NOTES I CAN ACCESS! I write all my papers using word online bc then I have 0 formatting errors when the professor reads it. When I contacted Microsoft about it they told me that it is because Amazon will not support an app even though the Fire runs on a 99% android system. This one app alone will probably drive me to buy a Windows or Android tablet in the future rather than another Kindle Fire. It has to be one of the poorest business chooses ever. I have been a Prime member for many years and have purchased over 1000 books, but this ban on Microsoft apps other than outlook might just drive me away.

Legally they can't because Fire OS is open source.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 28, 2017, 10:54:26 PM PST
They are. Fire OS is just Android with an Amazon skin on it.

A 2-minute search will reveal how to install everything you need (i.e., 4 official Google APKs) for Google Play and its library of apps. No rooting required, only 10-15 minutes of time and the ability to follow 4 steps of very simple instructions. Just uninstall the apps the normal way should you decide to revert.

If you don't know how, you don't want to. Rooting your Fire will void the warranty and Amazon will offer you no technical support to fix it.

But I don't know how to root my HD

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 8, 2016, 4:27:15 PM PST
CBRetriever says:
not possible unless you root your Fire and it's probably cheaper and easier to buy a device that supports Google Play

Side loading does not void the warranty. If it did Amazon would not have left that feature in.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 21, 2015, 9:14:02 PM PST
Does that cancel the warranty?

Well you can't have Google Play on a Fire, so buy the Galaxy.
