Amazon Fire HD 10

Postby grizzledbaer » Wed Sep 23, 2015 2:04 pm

My iPad is dead, so I am contemplating the new Amazon Fire HD 10 instead of a new iPad (which will save me about $500). I have reviewed the LDS mobile apps available for the Amazon Fire tablets, and it appears they have similar content as Apple products, but I would appreciate any comments on differences, if there are any. (This isn't a question about the tablets - just any thoughts on whether the LDS mobile apps might be different in content, features, or performance on Amazon tablets as opposed to Apple phones or tablets).

Grizzledbaer,

In my opinion, the GL app is pretty much the same between Apple and Android as far as features and content. The biggest difference is in how you do things (Appley or Adroidish). I made training videos for Android, with an intro blog post here:

http://www.lizmcguireonline.com/index.p ... y-training

...if you go a little more than half way down, to the section titled "Gospel Library Content and Features", it describes each of the videos - with the title being a link to the article - with video embedded. The descriptions alone at the above link may well be enough to tell you what you want to know - a listing of what features exist. And one video would give you a look at the user interface (though I'm not sure how / if the Amazon Fire might tweak the GUI). I based my videos off some Apple videos (linked in that article) done by an institute or seminary teacher (which is why I say they're comparable as far as feature set). Since I don't have / use iOS, I'm not familiar enough to rattle off a list of differences, but the link above might get you what you want to know - or prompt specific questions.

Liz
