    One of the frequent complaints about the Kindle Fire is the lack of a physical volume control. In my travels on other forums, I came across this app:
    Volume control by RubberBigPepper

    It's a floating, transparent volume slider that is small, unobtrusive, and very customizable that 'floats' along the edge of the screen. No longer do you have to stop a Youtube video just to change the volume.

    Unfortunately, it's not available in the Amazon App Store. Here's a link for it, from the 1mobile market:
    Download Volume control for Android ,Volume control 1.1 for Android download

    You're welcome in advance. :D

    I've been using this app for a while and it really is nice on the Kindle Fire.

    I actually like it better than a physical control. A physical control is easier to inadvertenly touch, provides mechanical parts to break or wear out, and also provides a place for dust or moisture to get inside the device.
