Will Amazon ever allow a RoboForm App in its Kindle Fire market?

Kindle Fire; pre-ordered one the first ones made. (First Gen?)

I don't want to have several tablets, but I already have two because of the Fire's limitations.

I use the cheapo non-Fire tablet for Square (no GPS on Fire precludes using Square on it) and I was easily able to easily install RoboForm on it. That's fine, that is all I use the cheapo tablet for.

I prefer using my Fire for pretty much everything else, but I hate having to type in user names and passwords in all my websites with the digital keyboard-PITA. I use RoboForm Everywhere which is available only from Google Play. Fire cannot use it without "rooting". I don't want to root, I just want to use my password manager.

I understand that the Fire is a storefront for Amazon content-fine! I like it. I read books and play apps, all is well. I have even bought a couple of apps through the Amazon Appstore for the cheapo tablet. But keeping me locked out of my password manager is starting to irritate me more every day.

Is there a "Wish List" or "Request List" for Apps somewhere that Amazon looks at sometimes? It has been over a year since the Fire launched and it is time to open things up a bit more. It is not like Siber is in competition with Amazon....

Robin - You need to contact the apps' developers and request those apps be made available for the Fire. Amazon can only offer what has been submitted to them. If you're using Google's password manager, it will never be available on the Fire.

have you ever visited the RoboForm Everywhere website?

http://www.roboform.com/platforms/mobile/android

There is an option to download from their server instead of GooglePlay.

I have no idea if it will work on the Kindle 1st Gen... just thought I'd pass on a way to download it.

Pineapple, I do not use Google's Password Manager (do they have a password manager?). Just RoboForm. I will look for a link to ask Siber for an app since Amazon seems bent on keeping out all others. After awhile it starts to seem just a little petty on Amazon's part.

Colleen, I tried going to RoboForm and I found that page. The only download link I found on it was to, you guessed it, Google Playstore. I will go look again. If there is an APK for download to my computer there I just might be able to install it.

OK, I found it here:

http://www.roboform.com/download

Now I will see if it is possible to get it into the Kindle without having to root the OS. (I have already checked the box to allow third-party apps. Fingers crossed.....

Thanks.

Robin - Good luck on the installation. Amazon is not keeping Siber out. If Siber hasn't submitted their apps to them, how are they supposed to offer them in the App Store?

Hope it works for you.

If you download directly to your Fire via the Silk browser, and have trouble finding it on your Kindle Fire, be sure to download http://www.amazon.com/ES-Mobile-File-Explorer/dp/B008K6HN8I (free at the Amazon App Store) and check your "Downloads" folder.

OK, I downloaded the APK from Siber at the link above.

I used the USB cable to copy it to the Kindle and then disconnected the Kindle from the computer. I used ES File Explorer to find the little RoboForm icon and just tapped it. RoboForm installed just fine, updated itself, and then synced to my account. Looks good.

I am going to try to contact Siber about making this a bit easier for the less computer savvy. A Fire app would be nicer for those who fear a Kindle Fire meltdown.

Amazon is off the hook in this instance.

Thank you for posting the steps for this method. There is still no app on Amazon for RoboForm, but I've been able to get it up and running on my Kindle Fire using these steps. I agree, an app would make it much easier!

I was able to find and load the app when I first got my Kindle Fire HDX. Now it seems that RoboForm has blocked that and one has to go through Google Play, which I don't seem to be able to do from the Kindle anyway. It's time for both Amazon and Kindle users to demand we get this. I'm guessing Google has leveraged the Android type app with SiberSystems.

Shelly - You can still sideload the APK to your Kindle Fire HDX if you have another device with Google Play access. Here's instructions on how to do that:

have you checked to see whether the app is available on 1mobile.com or goodereader.com - both of them have app stores you can install on your kindle that you can shop directly from.

Goodereader.com worked like a charm. This is the link: http://apps.goodereader.com/android-apps/personalization-and-tools/?did=32217. After dowload, connect your kindle to your computer and move the .apk file to your Kindle/downloads folder. From your kindle, use Easy Downloader to install the roboform app. Did it today!
