Bible Apps on Kindle Fire

Just got a Kindle Fire and already like it. One of the first things I did, after getting some of my favorite Android apps, was to download my favorite Bible apps. Sadly, one of them doesn’t show up in the Amazon App Store but others are well represented. Fortunately, you can download the beta version of the one.

So how does the new kid on the block measure up as a Bible study tablet? Well! Not great, but well. My “first impressions” post is over at the tech site that I write for, GottaBeMobile.com. Just a quick list of what I think about the tablet in general before getting to Bible specifics …

  • The interface looks nice – nicer than basic AndroidKindel Fire
  • The hardware is simple and works
  • The on/off button is on the bottom. Why?
  • The screen is beautiful and 7 inches is plenty for reading and simple tasks
  • It’s no iPad killer, but might be able to wound Apple sales a little bit for simple needs users
  • The Silk browser stinks!!! Too slow and clunky.

Here are the links to the apps (free unless otherwise labelled) that I have or will soon install on my Amazon Kindle Fire.

There are many more, but these are my choices as the best apps.

So how does the Kindle function as a Bible study tool. Not great. There’s just not enough screen real estate to make it functional, but like your smart phone it will be a great tool for just reading books and commentaries for the next Sunday’s passage while on the go. I’m excited about the fire. Be looking at GottaBeMobile for some other posts and reviews coming up.

To install the Logos app you will have to enable third-party app installation. Do this by going to the Settings screen (the little icon in the upper right of the screen that looks like  a gear sprocket. Then tap on More+. Next choose Device and switch the ON/OFF switch next to Allow Installation of Applications to ON.
