Default KindleFree (Free your kindle)

Within the last week I have been on vacation in Minnesota and my Dad has a Kindle Fire HD...after seeing how horrible the Amazon Homescreen is and all that can be done to help improve the device I decided to write an application that would help users perform general tasks on the Kindle Fire HD after rooting it that would make their experience better.

I have yet to test this on anything but the Kindle Fire HD. I know this will not work on the original Kindle Fire, but 2nd generation on up may be able to use this as well but I have not tested it as I don't have one of these devices.

I made two version, a free and a pro version. The free version will allow you to install a custom launcher and the Android market. Beyond that I'm asking for ~1.00 for the pro version (Well I get $1.00 anyways after Googles cut) to help development and buy me some StarBucks

Tip: long press on items to remove them from your device.

Here are the links to both in the Android market:

Pro - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...leFree_License

Free - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...son.KindleFree (I just published this one so it may not be up yet...)

I've also attached the free one as well.

Please let me know what you guys think and if you want to see more added to this.

Thanks Stephen. Excellent work. Might I suggest a couple of things?
1. An undo option for launchers and the miscellaneous stuff.
2. Reminder that if installing an alternate launcher, kindle books will no longer work.
3. A warning against updating any of the Amazon apps in google play store.
Just some ideas.

Stericson, I've already done all this and have no need for the app - but you hit it out of the park! You got a PayPal donate page?

Hey guys,

Sorry I was travelling yesterday back home.

So, I do have paypal Stericson.g1 AT Gmail (email)


@gunnyman

1. An undo option for launchers and the miscellaneous stuff.
-- Long press on an item to undo it
2. Reminder that if installing an alternate launcher, kindle books will no longer work.
-- I will add that, I wasn't aware that this happens, is this normal when replacing the launcher? Like does this happen if done manually?
3. A warning against updating any of the Amazon apps in google play store.
-- What should the warning say?
