    Hi everyone. I have a Nexus 7 (2013) and a Kindle Fire ($50), and even though the Nexus is better in pretty much every way, I find myself using the Fire more because of the free games on Underground.

    I was looking into how to install Google services on the Fire, and then the question occurred to me, couldn't I just install the Amazon app store on my Nexus? Or is Underground something different that Amazon only allows on Fire tablets? Are there any issues with doing it, such as compatibility? Or is this the best of both worlds (Android and Underground) that I think it is?

    Thanks!
    John

    I've got it installed on 4 different Android phones without any problems... Can't see why it would object to tablets

    I can't believe this never occurred to me before! I guess I just assumed that Underground was a perk of having a Fire tablet.

    Now I feel bad for my Fire. Not sure what I'll use it for if I can get the free games on my Nexus.

    Certainly there's a lot of games on the Google Play Store that are ruined by iaps (in app purchases) . These have either been removed on Amazon underground, or they have been made free.. So you can enjoy the games without having to pay to win

    Yep I would too. I love my N7 (2013 version) - still handles everything I can throw at it (albeit I'm a serial flash-aholic so it's rooted with a custom rom and kernel on there) and for me the 7" form factor is the perfect size. I hate the fact that stuff keeps creeping up to larger sizes - I want a phone that fits in my pocket and has a decent battery life, and a tab that isn't like lugging another laptop around :mad: (resolution - let's just not go there).

    So yeah, time to off-load the kindle ;)

    I completely agree about size. In fact, my only (slight) complaint about the Nexus is that it's a little long. Good for holding when watching videos, but otherwise sightly awkward.
