How To Download Bluefire Reader On Kindle Fire

The Bluefire Reader app for Android is available in the Amazon App Store for Android, but since Amazon has blocked eReader apps that compete with Kindle,  it’s not available in the Kindle Fire App Store.

But don’t worry, Bluefire has created a work around. The company has outlined instructions on how to install the Blue Reader for Android on the Kindle Fire in a blog post on its site. It only takes a few steps. Here is more from the post:

  • Tap “Settings” on your Kindle Fire (it’s the icon that looks like a gear)
  • Tap “More”
  • Scroll down until you see “Device”
  • In the Device tab, set “Allow installation of Applications” to ON, and tap OK when you see the Warning prompt
  • Tap here to download the Bluefire Reader APK (the Android app)

Remember that the app won’t update automatically with this workaround, so you’ll have to do that by manually reinstalling the app.
