Hi all, I have read a lot about missing apps in the market, but it seams to me that there is an unusually high number missing from my rooted Kindle....

Could someone please confirm if the following apps are also missing from their market?

Be Weather
Weather Bug
Go Launcher EX
Dolphin Browser HD
Weight Watchers Mobile (the official app)

I see themes for a lot of these, but not the main apps.

Also, I tried the fix.apk file that I have used on my phone, but it didn't get me what I was hoping for. Thanks

Don't have a fire yet, but can confirm from a few other places that these were removed from the Amazon marketplace for the Fire. You can still sideload them though. Seems this was done a few days ago once everyone started posting that this was a way to get rid of the carousel.

Not on mine either. Perhaps since the Fire isn't one the "compatible" list they are not even available to download.

I have side loaded done apps, but note all work. Thanks

i have go launcher ex and dolphin hd running right now. I did sideload them, i just did it when i was sideloading all the google apps and such. You might do some apk searches on the web. Otherwise it may take a couple weeks for them to be available for the fire (widgetlocker has already updated for the fire, for example).

The Android Market does not contain all of the available apps. It only contains apps that are compatible for your device. So if you have a Kindle Fire it will only show you apps they are compatible with the KFire. That does not mean that you cannot sideload those apps from the Internet.

But, not all sideloaded apps work though.

When I first got my Kindle, I was able to download Go Launcher Ex from the App Store, then when I had a friend get it, it was gone. Ended up sideloading it, but yes, there appears to be a filter.

It really would be quite awesome if there was a way to override this filtering in the android market for those that are rooted. I would love to take my chances.

Google Voice App Receives, but no way to send texts

I read through all FOUR pages of the Kindle Fire forum but did not see anything about this.

I have successfully installed (side loaded) Google Market and Maps on a rooted Fire. I also installed Google Voice (all apk's from my EVO).

GV runs and displays incoming texts, but there is no way to write or send a text. When you click on a text conversation, it opens but there is no text box to write in.

Clicking menu does not give a "compose" option.

Since GV sends texts over the Internet, I am puzzled why this does not work.
I downloaded another texting app and that one does work, but it gives you yet another "phone" number, which just confuses my contacts (they dont know who is texting them).

Anyone got GV working?
