gospel library app on kindle fire

Postby kodak99 » Thu Dec 21, 2017 1:52 pm

The Gospel Library app was deleted from my Kindle Fire by error. Kindle is using version 6.3.4 and the serial number is D01E as the first four characters, which tells what generation the device is. From Amazon Kindle www, I downloaded the app to the cloud. (I could not download it directly to the Kindle). From device, when I try to install this app or sync it, then I get the message "not compatible with your device. You cannot purchase this app fro this device". I teach Gospel Doctrine and would really like to have Gospel Library . Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Kodak99

I'm not sure how the Amazon store handles older devices.

But, according to my Googlesearch, that's a 2011 Fire based on Android 2.3. According to this post, even if you get it working again, it will cease to get new content updates (Ensign, Conferences, etc.) starting next month.

Thanks so much. I see under "THIS POST" this comment:
As a workaround, the Google Play Store provides old versions of Gospel Library to old devices so

If you're on Android 2.3 and up, Google Play will give you Gospel Library 3.3.4. (Content updates will end at the end of 2017.)

What would be the search for words on the Kindle to get to Gospel Library 3.3.4 app?

You could try Google Play Store, or perhaps the direct link.

I have no experience with the Kindle store, but I'd hope it would have similar functionality. (Delivers the version that works on your device.)

So are you saying if I get a newer kindle I can get the gospel library again?

Considering that there's no new content for your older one, that would seem to be the best option for continued use.
