Whew! After finally figuring it out, it's taken me a week of work to type up a tutorial to show you how to Get Google Play Store Apps on Your Kindle Fire! That's right, you can put apps from Google's Play Store on your beloved tablet without a smart phone!
Part of the reason it took so long (besides constant interrupts due to living my life) ;) is that I actually created a second tutorial on How to Transfer Files & Apps to Your Kindle Fire. Although I already had an FAQ on this, I decided to go all out and SHOW you how to do it with three different methods and lots of snazzy snapshots.
Between these two tutorials there are 88 images showing you almost every step of the process! That may sound like a lot ('cause it is!) but it's not that hard, it just takes some time and lots of little steps. But after you've set everything up and tried it out, you'll easily get the hang of it!
For newbies, this tutorial for getting Google Play Store apps on your Kindle Fire is a bit more advanced so if you haven't yet learned how to side-load apps onto your tablet, start with that first.
I hope you enjoy these tutorials (they've been a labor of love to put together) and have lots of fun finding and playing with tons of cool apps from Google's app store!
