Re: Android Shooting Software
Here's what I found....... so far. A hack/jail break may come along, though.
2. Amazon's App Store Is The Only App Store
We're sure you've heard all about how Android is supposed to be an open-source platform and how it's led to all this crazy fragmentation by different companies skinning and modifying it, but Amazon's sort of closing it off. You see, the Kindle Fire is powered by Android, but it doesn't look like it. That's because Amazon heavily modified Android 2.3.5 to look different. Gone are all the miniature app icons and in its place are carousels that sit on a bookshelf. One shelf for e-books, apps, movies, music, etc.
The issue? Although the Kindle Fire is powered by Android, it doesn't have access to the Android Market. The only way to get content is through Amazon's walled garden of services. Only apps that go through the Amazon Android App Store will work. It's possible that somebody will come along and crack it open like the Nook Color was and open access to the Market, but officially running the thousands of Android apps already on the market is a no-go for now, unless something changes.
That said, our own Kevin Hall, who has a Droid Charge in his pocket, praises the Amazon application store as one of the best places to get apps besides at the Market. Amazon offers a free paid app daily, and already has a pretty robust lineup.
Is this the "shooter" you are using? http://www.amazon.com/seankndy-Shooter/dp/B004DPR2JU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=mobile-apps&qid=1317312331&sr=1-1 by seankndy If so, it's in the Amazon Apps store and should work on the Fire.
Oh, I learned from the hunt w/BB that there is no reading time. It's glass, glass, glass, and then glass some more. That BB is the only fella that can squat and glass for long periods of time and stand straight up with no aches/pain/stretches. What's with that?
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
