You can search for and purchase games and mobile apps in the Amazon Appstore on your Fire tablet. Help for Kindle Fire HD (3rd Generation), Kindle Fire HDX 7" (3rd Generation), and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" (3rd Generation).
To successfully purchase games and apps from the Amazon Appstore, you'll need to set up your 1-Click payment method. Your 1-Click payment method must be a credit or debit card issued by a bank with a valid billing address. U.S. customers are not required to have a credit or debit card or Amazon.com Gift Cardwhen purchasing free apps or games.
Note: Some games and apps offer in-app purchasing. To turn off in-app purchasing, from your Apps library, swipe from the left edge of the screen and tap Settings. Tap In-App Purchasing, and then uncheck the box next to Allow In-App Purchasing.
From Home, tap Apps or Games, and then tap Store.
