Contentfrom 5100 reviews
Amazon's Kindle Fire has a lot of books, magazines, comics, newspapers, apps and games available for download.
Much like the iPod, the apps are easy to find and easy to control. While Amazon doesn't have a lot of apps yet, more are on the way. The apps appear along with the books on the front page in a scrolling menu.
Amazon, of course, allows to store books in the Amazon cloud that allows to essentially read as much as a reader wants to and store off of your Kindle. This allows to download as many books as one wants to and without using memory on the Fire.
Amazon also offers a Amazon Prime service for Kindle Fire which gives instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows and access to borrow a Kindle book every month, including New York Times Bestsellers, with no due dates.
