Introduction

Amazon’s Fire tablets provide a very affordable way to get at all kinds of media, from music and videos to books and colorful magazines. Any of the four tablet models also allow you to browse the Internet, connect to your Facebook account, make video calls via Skype, take photos, check your email, and read documents. The portability of both the 6- and 7-inch models makes them incredibly useful for people on the go. The 8.9-inch model is still pretty darn portable, and adds several features that are useful to those who want the most feature-rich tablet experience from Amazon.

In this book, I introduce you to all the cool Fire tablet features, providing tips and advice for getting the most out of these ingenious little devices. I help you find your way around the attractive and easy-to-use interface, provide advice about getting the most out of the Amazon Cloud Drive for storing and managing content, and even recommend some neat apps that make your Fire tablet more functional and fun. Finally, a complete chapter on using a Fire tablet to connect with and protect your family shows you features that integrate into your household.
