Default [Q] Amazon app on the G3?

Just discovered that the Play store declares both the phone and tablet versions of the Amazon app as incompatible. Any workaround?

Yes. Just google and find the apk and sideload it. It works fine.

You could download it using this http://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/

On your original out of the box rom? Mine didn't but it was included along with a huge amount of lg bloatware when I installed a posted kdz which was allegedly a generic one.

Install the Amazon app store and then install the Amazon app from there.

Anyone have trouble using the pre-installed Amazon? I can't connect successfully to Kindle or even the main Amazon storefront.

I ended up deleting them with TiBU, then reinstalling from Amazon, to get things working.
