Default Install 3rd party apps to Kindle Fire: No root or file manager required!

Amazon restricts the apps you can install on your Kindle Fire. But what if you want to get apps from outside the Amazon Appstore?

Here’s an easy 3-step solution, with NO root and NO file manager required. Sideload from thousands of free apps directly to your Kindle Fire!

Step 1:
On your Kindle Fire, go to: Settings > More > Device> Allow Installation of Applications. (Turn this ON and click “OK”)
Note: Settings is the gear icon in the top right of the screen.

Step 2:
On your computer, download and install SnapPea for Windows: SnapPea - Android's Best Friend SnapPea is the easiest way to manage your Kindle Fire from the desktop!

Step 3:
Use a Micro-USB cable to connect your Kindle Fire to your computer. Open SnapPea for Windows and it’ll automatically connect to your phone and install the SnapPea app on your Kindle (so that you can start side-loading apps). You’re all set!


1) Go to: Download > Apps and download from thousands of free apps from 1Mobile. There are no geographic restrictions and all apps are 100% free.

2) Go to: My Phone > Apps and “+Install Apps” to load APK files directly onto your Kindle Fire.
