Android app files can come via an APK file. You can install APK files on the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet by enabling a setting and using ES File Explorer to launch it. Just follow these steps.
Note: Be careful about where you have obtained the APK file. Files that come from non-legitimate sources may be corrupted or contain viruses. Please know what you are doing before you proceed.
- From the Fire, go to”Apps” > “Settings” > “Applications” > “Apps From Unknown Sources” (HD6) or “Settings” > “More” > “Device” > “Allow Installation of Applications” and ensure it’s set to “On“.
- Open the Kindle Fire web browser and download the APK file. You can also transfer APK files from your computer by connecting the Kindle Fire to the computer with a USB cable.
- Open the notification area (top bar). It should show that the .APK file is downloading. Tap it once the download has finished.
- Select “Install“.
The APK file will then install to the Kindle Fire and can be accessed under the Apps > Device selection.
