A good alarm clock is obligatory if you need reminders for things like waking up or going somewhere, and this app is the best one to use.

Alarm Clock not only gives you the time and lets you set multiple alarms, but it also shows the local weather and plays white noise as you go to sleep.

This free Kindle Fire app is easy to use, works in portrait and landscape mode, has a dimming feature, and functions even if it isn’t running or if your Kindle Fire is in sleep mode.

Creates stations based on favorite artists, songs, or genres.

What We Don’t Like

Pandora is definitely one of the most popular music streaming services available, and fortunately, it works through a free app for Kindle Fire.

It lets you create your own music stations based on the music you already know you like. From there, it finds similar music for you and plays it continuously at absolutely no charge. Pandora also provides comedy stations.

While there are advertisements at times (if you’re not subscribed to a paid plan), the app still provides a great way to find new music.

AccuWeather is the best weather app you can find for Kindle Fire because it manages to pack tons of useful features into one free app. It also looks nice and organizes its information well to avoid clutter.

Some of the features include a minute-by-minute forecast for the next two hours, severe weather alerts, interactive radar maps, a 15-day forecast, and info like precipitation amounts, cloud cover, sunrise/sunset times, wind speeds, and more.

Personalized watch list.

Optional alerts.

With TV Guide, you can not only see a schedule of what’s playing on your TV, but you can also schedule reminders to notify you of your favorite shows just minutes before they air. Reminders can be specific for both new episodes and recurring ones.

This Kindle Fire app will find your local cable or satellite provider to make sure the guide you see is specific to the actual schedules in your time zone. You can also set your favorite channels and easily switch between every channel, HD-only channels, and your favorites to create a personalized interface.

One popular feature of TV Guide is the section that tells you what’s new tonight. This means you don’t have to sift through the entire guide to find new episodes that air today.

What We Like
Turns on by default when the app opens.

Surprisingly bright.

Simple but effective design.

What We Don’t Like
On Kindles without a flash, the app turns the screen white, which isn’t as effective.

Doesn’t project light any distance; you must be close.

A flashlight app is essential for everyone with a Kindle Fire. Even if you don’t currently anticipate a need for one, you’ll be thankful you installed it when you need one.

Flashlight HD LED has a super simple design and works instantaneously when you first open the app or widget. You can even choose any color you want for the light.

Best Apps For Fire

  1. Goodreads

    Goodreads Logo
    This app is a must-have if you are a fan of reading and like free online books. The app has more than 10,000,000 members who have contributed more than 350,000,000 books to the app. This means you can easily read any of the thousands of books hosted on the app. That alone is worth a download but there are more features that will surely help you in discovering Goodreads.

There is a dedicated search button that can help you in finding exactly what you want from the +12 million books. This lets you see what your friends are reading and check out other reviews to make a sound judgment before reading a book. Not only that, but the app also doesn’t require you to sign in for reading or using the basic features of the app. However, signing in will let you access the advanced features such as friend reviews, as well as allow you to review the books yourself.

  1. ES File Explorer File Manager
    ES File Explorer Logo

    ES File Explorer was our go-to file Explorer on Android and it was even made our list of the Top File Explorer Apps for Android, which is great news for those of you who’d like to keep using it on your Fire Tablet, even though it’s no longer available for Android. This is a fully-featured file explorer that not only allows you to browse files on your device but also does so much more. This Jack-of-all App allows you to install applications, extract zip files, open images and documents, even play music and videos.

Main Interface es file explorer
Main Interface
Best of all, it is fully integrated with all the popular cloud storage services, allowing you to access multiple cloud storage from within the app. If you regularly install third-party apps on your device, this app allows thumbnails for APKs as well. From functioning as FTP to a Bluetooth browser, ES File Explorer has a lot going for it. We highly recommend the paid version if you want to expand the functionality but quite honestly, the free version is already quite robust.

  1. VLC for Fire

    VLC Player is one of the most remarkable pieces of free software we’ve ever seen. We’ve been using it on our devices for more than a decade and it has worked perfectly without any problems. Not only is it small in size but it also offers almost every feature you would want from a video player. VLC for Fire is a must-have app if you want to consume any kind of media on your tablet.

To be frank, it would be a huge disservice to Amazon Fire Tablets to not enjoy media on them. It is a completely free video player that can play almost any kind of format on your device. The best part? It works perfectly well with game controllers as well as Fire TV Voice Remote, so you have complete freedom of input. It is surprising that a 17.2 MB app is able to deliver such a wholesome video watching experience.

  1. WPS Office – Word, Docs, PDF, Note, Slide & Sheet
    WPS Logo
    WPS Logo
    WPS Office is a free-to-download app for Amazon Fire Tablets that will add a lot of utility to your device. It is a full office suite that offers word processing, spreadsheet making, and even presentation slide crafting. It is a well-rounded app that you’ll surely need if you’re going to do anything work-related on your new tablet.

The interface is designed beautifully and the app works really well on Amazon Fire devices. I personally used this app for around 3 years on Android and it has never given me any problems whatsoever. It is also compatible with Bluetooth keyboard so if you want to type out an article on the go, this app will provide you the freedom you need.

  1. Alarm Clock For Me

Alarm Clock For Me Logo
The name is quite suggestive – this is an alarm clock app. But this is no ordinary alarm clock – it has a very nicely designed, intuitive interface and it’s very customizable. You can pick what tone to wake up to, tinker with the snooze button, the luminosity, and see a weather report on the screen as soon as you get up.

The cameras on Amazon’s Fire tablets are decidedly not great, which makes sense given the price – but if you’re still set on snapping photos, be sure to have a toolkit handy.
