    I use the Amazon store. I have Google Play on my Roku but rarely use it so I haven't seen any reason to put it elsewhere.,

    The whole thing is just a "shock" to my system since I was used to the Nook, simple. I learned an important lesson, find one of the devices and see how they work before I buy them, LOL! Duh!!

    Denise, Go to the Kindle store and get this free Kindle manual. I think that it is the best one out there, and it explains EVERYTHING that a Kindle Fire does, and how to make it do it.
    It is written by Steve Weber, who also has the Kindle Buffet , with lots of free and cheap books to read on a Kindle. Here is the link to his Amazon page, so you can see which manual I am talking about.

    Thank Yvonne,

    this "is" really about me being used to one thing, and not being quite willing to change. I could probably learn to like the Fire Tablet. I think the posibilities are really good as described in the following article. That is, if I want to tweak things "more to my liking". Or, what I'm used to. I appreciate the manual and will take a look;) happy new year (if I haven't said that to you yet;) We are having a neat storm, some wind, rain, and even some hail! ttyl, Denise;)

    PS Don't forget mine is not a Kindle Fire. They call it a Fire Tablet 7", and the Kindle Fires are way more expensive, and I'm sure the manual has quite a few differences. But I'm going to look, as the link might show me the way to a new, Fire manual as well;)

    PSS forgot the link to the article: http://www.howtogeek.com/270382/how-to-make-the-amazon-fire-tablet-more-like-stock-android/

    It's the same thing. They are just calling them Fire Tablets now. There are more expensive models, but the one you have was first called a Kindle Fire.

    They're the same thing? Just cheaper? Ok that's news to me. Why do they have to confuse me. I'm telling my sister a gal that has a Kindle Fire may not be able to help her that much because my sis is actually getting a Fire, not a Kindle Fire. Too bad obama isn't here now so I could punch him out. I know this is somehow his fault too, LOL!!

    I've given up, lol;) I'm going to learn to love Kindle Fire. I was able to get the Google Play all set up on mine, but I felt it was such a pain to get done, I didn't want to do the same to my sisters. She's never had a Nook, so it's not going to be any easier for her anyway. Plus, the general consensus seems to be that Nook will be history before too long anyway. It's already not well supported by B&N.

    Anyway, thanks for the input, and especially the manual will come in hand @Yvonne Smith and most important, I know not to sit on the Kindles thanks to @Ken Anderson

    Happy New Year's 2nd day into it;) We had a heck of a hail-storm, took out the electricity for a time. About 11 o'clock or so, it just came down so hard, never saw it that bad I don't think. Looked like about an inch or more of little, white balls when I look out after!! Hope I still have a windshield;)
