Mobile App for Fire Tablets
Is there any plans for a fire tablet app? Or a way to load it without google play?
I'm asking because of this.
Google starts blocking “uncertified” Android devices from logging in
This includes the amazon fire tablets. I currently have Google Play side-loaded so I could install your app as well at calibre-companion and moon+ reader pro.
There's an android build of this unofficial Windows Phone app. Honestly, it works better than the official app. Very occasionally get stability probs reading horizontal paginated but I just switched to vertical scroll & it is solid then.
Did you get blocked you personally? I have a fire HDX and market works normally on a custom ROM. That sure sounds like an annoying development for some but I won't be too affected myself as I barely use it and there are ways to extract .apk files from the other phone or to download it in some way.
If it actually becomes a common problem it probably won't be hard to persuade Sam to host the .apk package on the JNC site (there's also an option of using amazon market but it won't solve the problem for anyone without that installed).
I haven't been blocked yet, I'm just trying to get prepared for when it happens.
So far it isn't available on the amazon market. My Moon+reader Pro is available on amazon, but not for the fire tablets.
I was starting to look into how to copy .apk files over, it would just be easier if it updates itself, but I can live with manual updates.
