Looking For A Few Good Fire Apps?

If you’re looking for something fun or productive to do with your Kindle Fire, there’s an app for that! From Jonathan Takiff on Philly.com:

NEWS GATHERING 101: To me, the most magical thing about a  tablet computer is its ability to bring the world to your hands through  so-called “content aggregators.” These are focused, customizable search engines  that show what’s popping on websites, magazines and newspapers.

On the Kindle Fire, the best news aggregator is Pulse. It  presents horizontal strips of story headlines, updated daily, from individual  sites you’ve preselected as favorites. Just slide with a finger to browse and  tap to open. I use Pulse to keep up with music (Filter), tech  (Popular Science, Engadget) and culture (The New Yorker).

More interested in what people are wearing than saying? ChannelCaster  Pro mashes light, gossipy content with a social twist and lotsa glossy  pictures.

For a fresh news approach, load the multilingual World  Newspapers aggregator or the one dedicated just to UK (United Kingdom) Newspapers. Fewer translations needed with the  latter.

And while not quite the funny pages, the Comics app turns a  Fire into a pretty sweet playing field for comic books and anime. Most titles  sell for 99 cents to $7.99, though there’s usually a few for free.
