    App Storage limit Question

    I recently got a Kindle Fire and noticed in the device area that my app storage is using 0.97 GB of 1.17 GB available i only have 17 apps loaded on my Kindle Fire. Does this mean i am getting close to maxing out the storage limit and i'll have to remove some apps? The orange bar seems to have only reached a quarter of usage and not even close to being half way, could someone please explain how the app storage works?

    I have about 40 apps and only have used up 600 Mg.... .97 is a tremendous amount of storage.take alook at each app and see which ones are using up all your storage space

    Using nearly 1 gig for 17 apps is crazy! Most apps aren't 50 MB or more so, as the person above me says, see which apps are eating all the space.

    1 gig isn't enough space for apps. Amazon needs to increase this for us!!!

    BTW - my first post here.

    I have just figured the availability of space out i was reading it incorrectly. I have .97 GB available of my 1.17 available so actually i've only used .20 so far. i apologize for the newbie post this is my first Kindle Fire.

    I'm a newbie as well. When I saw the storage amounts for apps and internal I was surprised they are so small -1.17GB and 5.36Gb respectively.
    Given that I use a 16GB class 10 SD card in my camera and paid about $12.00 for it, I would have thought Amazon would offer more or at least have a micro SD slot for users to add their own. Any comment on these observations?

    Idk, as an SD card slot was one of their cost cutting measures to keep the price so low.
