    I'm not doubting the rep said that but do they even know what side loading is? Most non forums surfing cs tech reps have no idea what we are talking about when we geek speak and may not even realize itunes isn't going to work on Android, much less what side loading an app is.
    With unemployment at what it is in Amreica folks will take any job they can find and may not know diddly beyond the script.
    If someone else can confirm or deny I'd appreciate it.
    Again, not doubting you were told that, just that I've dealt with enough cs folks to know half or more of them are blowing smoke up our butts to get to the next call in the que, do their 8, and get out of there asap.

    Thanks Mark. He seemed pretty sure of himself and said that the only apps that would work would be from the amazon android apps. I am really just wanting to load dosbox android app so that i can play my old sierra dos games, but maybe that will be impossible.

    Anyway.......thanks for the quick and long reply......

    So true. CS will usually toe the party line on this stuff..they're supposed to, so that's why their my LAST source for real information.

    Even if it doesn't OFFICIALLY support side loaded apps... It won't be long.

    I heard just the opposite from someone inside Amazon - that side-loading via USB and downloading APK's can be achieved.
