It doesn't work on ICS, it seems to crash in the same spot. Until we get an officially released app or the Kindle Fire upgraded to ICS you are out of luck.

isn't kindle fire the only device that has the "official" Amazon video app?

or is Amazon planning to roll out one for all other tablets?(Anrdoid, iOS or otherwise)

Yes the Kindle Fire is where this APK was pulled from. I wonder how long until we see something official from Amazon as they have just released something for the PS3.

I pulled it from my Kindle and uploaded it to my epic touch 4 g. It streams fine but once a movie starts I can't stop, pause, fast forward, etc. Those settings are on the screen as an overly in the Kindle Fire. It's obviously specific to the fire because that overlay won't come up there. I wonder if there is a workaound.

That is what I experienced when I managed to get it running on a HTC Sensation running GB. But if you cancelled the video and restarted, it would resume.

When I upgraded the Sensation to ICS it all stopped working presumably because the Kindle app is not certified for ICS yet.

I see that some people have this running on a NOOK and have the on screen controls to rewind, pause, ff etc. I wonder why we can't do that on ours??

i'd be very surprised if they released a ics version, given their O/S doesn't have a ics base...becomes a perk of buying a kf vs the other android tablets...

i'm on cm9 on my kf and watch it using the stock browser (with flash installed) from the instant video website - and that works well - although navigation/quality isn't as great as the app

installed it on t-mo htc one s. I can see and browse videos. However, when I tap on the video icon I am getting " Unfortunately, Amazon video has stopped" option to click "OK".

not rooted HTC ONE S. I have tried over 4G and wifi. Same results.

I tried Dolphin browser and managed it to work but it is choppy. Can't use it like this.

Any current solutions?

Thanks

As has been well documented in this thread there are only two viable solutions

Buy a KF
See if the extracted apk will run on a device with GB (it worked on my HTC Sensation)

ICS is not supported by the KF so it's unlikely a hacked solution would run on ICS. The fact that it sort of runs on GB is a bonus
