List Rules Apps available for the Amazon Kindle Fire, free or paid.

This is a list of the best apps for the Kindle Fire. Amazon introduced the Kindle Fire in 2011, and since then, fans of the device have explored hundreds of apps for this tablet. Some are better than others, though, and this list contains only the greatest apps for the Kindle Fire, the apps that all Kindle Fire owners should download to get the most out of their tablets.

The original purpose of Amazon’s Kindle was media consumption (as an e-reader), and the apps on this list definitely enhance that experience. Kindle Fire owners can enjoy movies and TV with the Netflix or Hulu Plus apps, the best reading on the web with the Instapaper app, or sync their music with the Spotify app. Users can also make their own content to share with apps such as Drawing Pad or SketchBook Mobile.

The Kindle Fire can do so much more than just deliver media, however. Many of the most popular tablet games are available for this device, including Angry Birds and Candy Crush, and users can even stay on top of their work with apps such as OfficeSuite Professional. Would you rather keep up with your friends? Simply download the hottest social media apps, such as Twitter - nearly all of the greatest social sharing apps are available for Kindle Fire, from Skype to Pinterest.

If you are looking for the premier apps for the Kindle Fire, you don’t have to look any further than this list. While some are paid, many are free - so there’s no excuse not to load up your Kindle Fire with many of the greatest apps out there. Vote up the best Kindle Fire apps below, or add the ones you can't imagine life without, if they aren't already on the list. After you are finished, head on over and vote on the best funny apps for your smartphone.
