Default new to android, got some questions

Hi everybody! so this kindle fire is my first android device, i was wondering if there was any way to get access to the android market without rooting. i tried appbrian but when i try and install it (appbrain.com/install) i get redirected to the kindle app store. and the android market website tells me i dont have any android devices. all i really want to do right now is get the android market version of scrabble (the kindle store version of it is quite lame) thanks!!

I'd suggest you root it, install market, unroot.

hey thanks, its actually my girlfriend's device and she is wary of rooting b/c of the warranty thing. i did find this thread

Install Any App on Kindle Fire

and was able to get scrabble free on there. Just goes to show you should always read before posting.

Yes, you can find and install just about any app you want without having to root. And if you have an Android phone, it's that much simpler - you can get the app on that device and bring it over to the fire.

no, there is not any auto update feature if you download it online. but, you can install later versions of the app as they come out on the inter-webs, but all of the app data would be gone......
