    Activating this when I get my Fire tomorrow is going to be the absolutely FIRST thing I do with my Fire.

    Yah, Go Launcher is working pretty nice. Not one force close yet. SPB shell was giving me quite a lot of force closes. I need a better keyboard. Although this one is being pretty darn responsive...I have to say!

    Where are you guys getting the apks? I used a file manager to back up apps on my phone (Nexus S 4G) and transferred the apks to my Fire. The apps I tried (twitter, flickr, and tapatalk) all worked, but the icon in the homepage carousel was distorted or very pixelated. Are you guys experiencing the same issue or is it possible the apks that I used?

    Here is a link to what I thought was a pretty good article about one way to sideload. I've been using it and it works fine. Apparently most apps that don't work are apps that require a log in, which is why I couldn't get Gmail to work. This method lets you sideload about any app you have on your android phone by backing up any apps you want to use with a file app, transferring them to your PC via USB, then loading them on to the Fire via USB. You then install and use the Easy Installer app on your Fire to do the installation. I'm sure there are other ways of putting .apk files on your computer other than transferring from your phone, but I haven't had time to research that.
