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.
