Kindle Fire support

Mobile Bug Report
Agreed. Getting mobile armory on my Kindle would be very nice.
Add me to the list of peeps wanting this to happen. I don't have a smartphone to transfer the file from (or a desire to have one) but would love to see this on my kindle.
So, any chance a BLUE will make a comment on this possibility?

Thinking of getting a Kindle Fire, and I would absolutely love this.
Add me to the list, I would like any and all blizzard apps to get a Kindle Fire edition(ideally sold in the amazon app store). I especially want the AH one with the monthly fee.

Any chance this is in the works blues?

I stickied the post.
I would love to be able to use the apps on my kindle they came out with one I would be adding the mobile AH to my phone asap
Would love to have all the Blizzard apps available for use on my Kindle Fire as well. Hope this is on the front burner and being worked on ASAP!!! I would like my authenticator, armory, and especially the Auction House app.
Add my name to the list of people interested in WoW apps for the Kindle Fire. It would be a totally awesome addition to the WoW family.
Add my name to the list for getting both the Authenticator and Armory apps on Kindle Fire.

FYI - the Fire uses Android 2.3, with a few mods to repoint any app store visits to Amazon.com, plus a few reskinning things. It's a fully functional Android 2.3 machine, so those comments about it not being one are false. Yes, they modded it, but my understanding is that they didn't touch any of the base OS - I've side graded apps from my computer by downloading from a 3rd party site, and everything worked perfectly.

So, if Blizz doesn't want to pay to host it on Amazon, all they really have to do is have a download link on their site. We can side grade and install from there.

Plus, it makes the game that much more secure. Isn't that the intent here?
Adding my voice in favor of the apps being available on the kindle fire!

I would also like to see this happen, sooner than later if possible :)
Yep, would LOVE the app on my Kindle Fire.
I would love it too. I want to ditch my I-Pod.
Okay I have a solution for the Kindle Fire until we get Official Support from Blizzard on this.

This is a wifi solution since I can not get my computer to sync with a usb cable for some odd reason. FIRST, go to Device on your kindle and turn on "Allow Installtion of Applications"

1. Download Wifi File Explorer Pro from the app store .99 cents. (did not try with free version)
2. Download EsFile Explorer from the app store (free)
3. go to 4shared.com and find the non-amazon store app you want and download it. Here is the link for the aunthenticator .apk
http://www.4shared.com/android/GR_9em50/Battlenet_Mobile_Authenticator.html?aff=7637829
(If im not allowed to post this then I will delete the link)

4. Open Wifi File Explorer Pro and it should auto connect to your router if your Kindle Fire is already set up.
5. Open the url the app gives you in your web browser (works best in chrome)
6. Create a new directory or just use LOST.DIR
7. directory at top should be similar to this /mnt/sdcard/LOST.DIR/
8. on the bottom right under upload file, browse and find the .apk and upload.
9. Exit the app on your kindle and open Es File Explorer and go to your directory (or LOST.DIR if used)
10.Click the app and install.
11. Launch app and follow instruction to attach to your account.

Also one other note, If you go to Device on your kindle and turn on "Allow Installtion of Applications" , you should be able to download directly to your kindle. I prefer the first method so that I can virus scan the files before i transfer them.
That apk you linked is an extremely old version.
