Totally In Love w/ My Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ with Mayday


From time to time I get products to review that just blow me away and the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is one of them.  This is actually the 3rd Kindle we have had and each newer version gets so much nicer.  If you think Kindles are just for reading eBooks, boy are you wrong.   These HD tablets do so much more !!!

With the HDX, there are so many nice upgrades such as the pixel density is now 339 ppi making the picture SUPER CLEAR, it is 34% lighter (which is nice when you are holding it for a long time), has a faster processor, has a longer battery life (can last up to 18 hours when reading an eBook) and it has both front and rear cameras.  Plus it has the MAYDAY option where you can connect with an Amazon representative within 15 seconds and ask them for help 24/7, 365 days a year.  The best part is IT’S FREE !!!!


The Kindle Fire HDX gives you instant access to the most popular free and best-selling apps to help you stay productive or be entertained such as Facebook, Netflix, Candy Crush, Angry Birds, Hulu Plus and more.

You can also listen to all your favorite songs through the Dolby audio dual stereo speakers.  Download the Pandora app and pick your favorite style of music or favorite bands and jam out.  Or download your choice from thousands of audiobooks on Audible and the Kindle Fire tablet can now synchronize Kindle text with companion Audible audiobooks with real-time highlighting to create a more immersive reading experience, as well as deepen learning and comprehension.  One of the coolest features is Whispersync which creates a virtual bookmark, so your Kindle picks up right where you left off listening.

The Kindle Fire HDX is perfect for getting work done and it now supports printing documents, spreadsheets, presentations, photos and e-mails to your home or office’s wireless printer.


I absolutely LOVE the Kindle FreeTime feature on this.  It comes free on every new Kindle Fire and allows parents to create a profile for each of their children and choose what books, apps, games, and videos they want to give their kids access to.


You can also set daily time limits for tablet use or restrict certain categories—like games and video—while leaving unlimited time for reading.  This is going to be perfect for Kyle because he gets so into games that hours and hours go by and he doesn’t get school work completed.  Now he will not be able to play after the set time limit is up.


Also Kindle FreeTime Unlimited is the first-ever all-in-one subscription that brings together kid-friendly books, games, educational apps, movies and TV shows – all the types of content that kids and parents love. From just $2.99 per month, enjoy unlimited access to content from Disney, Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, PBS, and more.


And one more thing I love about buying the Kindle Fire HD is that you get Amazon Prime for free which includes Prime Instant Video so my kids are able to stream lots of Free Movies.

The new Xray for Music allows you read lyrics to songs line by line.  There is also Xray for movies and TV as well.  Simply tap on any scene to instantly see which actors are currently on screen, jump to other movies in which they star, learn the names of songs as they play, see trivia questions and answers, and explore character backstories.

So if you are considering getting a tablet, the Kindle Fire HDX is definitely one that meets most every feature you would need in a tablet !!!
