Hello,

I know there is already an existing crunchyroll application available on the Amazon market for the Kindle Fire HD but not the HD 8.9". When will this be available? I very rarely use the website for streaming in comparison to using the Roku / mobile device apps. I've been using a workaround for the moment, but that's really not a solution long-term. I

I installed the 1Mobile Market app which has Android apps available outside of Amazon (and/or Google Play, which will not allow you to install to a Kindle). There is a Crunchyroll app there which works OK on my 8.9 HD fire. A minor thing is that you have to hold it in portrait mode for the menu, but it plays OK in landscape. You have to set "allow installation of Apps from unknown sources under Settings, Device first, though. I haven't had any problems with the 1mobile apps I do use, but I do make sure there isn't something on Amazon itself first before picking one. You may need to install ES File Explorerbefore any of that can be done, but you don't have to root your Kindle, which is the most important thing...

Thanks, it looks like the app is now available for Kindle Fire HD 8.9 on the Amazon market, the app is far better than the getjar apk I was previously using. Thanks.
