I like to stream a local radio station on my Fire via the web. It there a way to co.tinue to hear the audio while using other apps or viewing other webp pages? The audio will only play if I have that specific tab open.

If I run Slacker and open a book, Slacker keeps playing. Not a Pandora fan, so I don't know about that app.

I use Tune In app for radio stations and it plays fine while I read a book or play chess on my Kfire. Pandora also plays while I read a book or play the chess app.

KFire indeed does multitask programs like these.

I run Pandora while reading or playing games.

I have been able to listen to music on Rhapsody while in another app. I think it depends on the app you are using.

Thanks for the heads up on Tune In!!! It is exactly what I was looking for and works perfectly!

i second tune in, plus you can have presets if you create an account (free)
though i prefer listening through silk, because you can't control scroll forward or back on the player (for non live stream, you can do this on the bbcs web based player) unfortunately it does not play in the background

what about chat clients? has anybody any experience leaving a chat client in the background while reading a book? will the fire give you notifications when someone sends you a chat message and you can easily get to the chat app and reply?

this maybe the possible deal breaker for me if i cannot do this with the fire, then i may go for other android tablets.

I want to be able to view a screenshot while playing a game at the same time. I mean to have have a split screen so I can look at the screenshot while copying it in my game. I hate that I can't. I'm a 10 year old boy and really want to be able to multitask. I'm fine with music because Spotify will still play music even if your kindle is off!
