OverDrive App update for Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD users

Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD tablets

Unfortunately, Amazon have removed our eRead providers app from their Amazon Kindle app store.

Customers wishing to download EPUB eBooks and MP3 Audiobooks to a Kindle Fire tablet will need to download the OverDrive Media Console app via our OverDrive website, the Google play store (you will require a Google account to do this), or the GoodeReader android apps website.

Kindle Settings 

The settings on the Kindle Fire will need to be adjusted prior to downloading the app, to do this please follow the instruction below:-

  • Click on the top of the Kindle Fire screen until the menu appears
  • Click on +more, scroll down to Devices
  • Click on Devices and make sure ‘Allow other applications to install’ is set to ON

Please note:

OverDrive eBooks can currently only be used on the Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD series of tablets not the Kindle series of eBook readers.

    I keep hearing that proper SEO isnt useful, do you think Google
    is trying to get rid of search engine optimisation?
