    Amazon, in a move to enter the mobile payment space, announced Local Register on Wednesday. The application and ecosystem is designed take debit or credit card payments, record transactions, send receipts, all similar to Square. Amazon sells the card reader for $10 on their site. Once...

    Not to be outdone by other platforms such as Google, Apple, and US Carriers (Isis), Amazon jumped into the card storage and wallet space with Amazon Wallet. The application comes ready to store your cards and let you scan loyalty or gift cards, but you won't be pulling this card out to make NFC...

    With the success of Netflix, Play Music and other unlimited streaming media-consumption services it's no shock that Amazon would want to join in the game - also, rumors helped suppress the shock surrounding this announcement. Earlier Friday Amazon announced its new Kindle Unlimited service that...

    If you threw Google Search, Google Goggles, SoundHound, Amazon's shopping app, Amazon's Prime Instant Video and Prime Music services and the world's biggest Yellow Pages into a blender, you might come out with a purée that tastes like what Amazon calls Firefly. Firefly basically comes down to a...

    Often lost in the marketing jargon used to generate hype for a new device is the practical everyday usefulness of its features. Often, even the real meaning of the buzzwords used in product launches is lost to the very customers a company is trying to cater to. In many cases the use of such...

    At first glance, the specs for the Amazon Fire Phone are nothing to write home about - the 720p display might remind you of a Moto X while the Snapdragon 800 processor and 13MP rear camera might remind you of the LG G2. No doubt the 3D "Dynamic Perspective" technology will run more fluidly on a...

    Rumors have long pointed to an Amazon smartphone (3D technology, AT&T exclusive, four front-facing corner cameras), so when they finally took the wraps off the Fire Phone on Wednesday little was left to the imagination. Nevertheless, it's always better when it's official, especially if you avoid...

    Ever side load a licensed app without purchasing it, and loved it so much you decided it was worth buying from Google Play? Ever download an app from the Amazon App Store, deleted it, and decided to buy it from the Google Play store? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you...

    After many test I managed to get Silk to work on a different OS. This worked on CM7 for Kindle Fire. If you get any errors please post. Here is the link to the spreadsheet. Please if you have time fill it out so users will be able to check before doing it! Install Tutorial: 1. Download the...
  10. Galaxy Nexus
    First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong sub-forum, I'm kind of new here. I just wanted to let everyone that's still looking for a Galaxy Nexus that Amazon Wireless has them in stock as of now for $230 ($229.99 actually, but it's much easier to round up) for all upgrade types, including...
  11. Galaxy Nexus
    I decided I would post this here since I haven't seen it posted but have seen it asked: If you are getting a login error for the Amazon App Store, go here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/your-a...F8&ref_=ya_83& ...and deregister some of your devices. It's got a soft-limit of around 20 or so...
  12. Samsung Galaxy Tab 7
    Has anyone found a fix for the Amazon Video app and been able to get the app to actually work? I can get it to run, but when I select a video it force-closes. Amazon is definitely the cheapest video stores I have found when I need to download a video (rent) vs. streaming as in Netflix.
  13. Android Applications
    Does anyone know of a way to download apps from the Amazon App without having to use wifi for the larger ones? I have 4G, I don't see why this should be an issue or why the app developers would set this limit to 20Mb.
  14. Rezound
    Hi all, Due to a lack of information, I called up Amazon Wireless to check in on their promotion of buying a hotspot-capable phone (Rezound currently included at the price of $200 for new customers, $230 for upgrades) and activating Mobile Hotspot at the time ($20/month). If you do this, you...
  15. HP Touchpad
    Just for today, Amazon's Free App of the Day is Quick Office. So if you missed out on Office Suite from a few weeks ago, now's your second chance. Quick office also syncs with box.net when you log in so you'll always have the latest version stored in the cloud.
  16. Droid Razr
    Gizmodo is reporting that Amazon Wireless may be selling the Razr today only for $111.11. If so, I might have to take my sights off the Nexus and jump back on the Motorola bandwagon. Anyone else feeling the urge to use up their upgrade...
