    What apps do you like to see on the Kindle Fire?

    I mainly created this thread to report the I just got a tweet from OliveTree saying that their Kindle Fire real arrive at there offices tomorrow and thought to make it a general thread.

    OliveTree BibleReader is one of my top apps I like to see on the Kindle Fire and looks like OliveTree will port it over.

    Other apps I like to see are Weight Watchers Mobile, Mahjong and Friends and Rfeal Deal Slots. I also like to see Mint, Bank of America, Fidelity, Schwab, SunTrust, Discover, and Astrid.

    Edit: I'm assuming that Dropbox, Allrecipes, and Evernote will all be on the Kindle Fire.

    I would like to see some of the basic apps such as Pandora, Daily Bible, Dolphin Browser, Netflix, and a Calendar.. while I know some of those will be there, I think those are the basics for me!

    Netflix, hulu+ and a decent music app would make me happy.

    Tasker! But, I don't think that Tasker's developer Pent would agree to Amazon's terms. And, I don't think the Kindle Fire has enough features to make Tasker do all the things it does.

    Hmm.
    1. Pulse, if only so I could keep all my devices sync'd
    2. Overdrive. Libraries are kinda contrary to the idea of the device, but the libraries around here actually have a lot available there.
    3. A good calendar program, as per Business Calendar Pro
    4. ConnectBot
    5. The Tricorder app. RIP.

    Feedly (RSS reader that syncs with Google Reader)
    Angry Birds
    TweetDeck
    A not-cached web browser (like Dolphin HD with LastPass)
    YouVersion Bible
    OverDrive Media Console (or is this redundant?)

    I was able to sideload maps and netflix. Both look good on the fire.

    I thought the Fire supported netflix out of the box.

    I didn't see it in the Amazon market from within the Fire. I was confused also and just sideloaded the new honeycomb version.

    Banking apps. My banks and brokerages have apps on the Google Android App Market but I can't find them on the Amazon Market. Hopefully this will change.

    Here's what comes loaded on it (just got the Fire today):
    IMDB, Gallery, Audible, QuickOffice, Pulse, Amazon, Contacts. It shows "Facebook" in the apps menu, but it's really just a browser bookmark. It has download shortcuts for Pandora, ESPN Scoreboard, Weather Channel, Words with Friends, and Comics.

    I'm skeptical of Swype on a tablet. Is the experience really that great?

    I find myself swyping second-naturedly before I remember there is no swype. This is going to take a LOT of getting used to. I have to remember to tap the word suggestion or space after every word, where with swype, I could just continue if the suggested word was correct. It's much quicker for me to slide from key to key than to poke individual keys as well.
