A peek at what’s on my Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet

I received several requests for a quick look at what’s on my Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet.


Updated 10/8/22: The Acapela app update allowed me to use the voices in Cboard as long as I wasn’t logged in. The update for the Avaz AAC app on 10/4/22 added access to the Acapela voices.

How to Install the Google Play Store on an Amazon Fire Tablet: https://www.howtogeek.com/232726/how-to-install-the-google-play-store-on-your-amazon-fire-tablet/ (I like that he keeps that post updated. Pay close attention to the instructions for your exact model of tablet & follow the precise instructions)

Tips: If you are using an Android tablet & an Amazon Fire Tablet with the Google Play App Store side loaded, be sure to toggle on Family Sharing before making app purchases & make the purchases from the Google Play App Store on your Amazon Fire Tablet. Those have been recognized by Google Play on my Android tablet. The reverse was hit and miss (likely due to the side loading).
