    teach me how to side load apps

    Hi,
    I am new to all this tech stuff. I am trying to "side load" some of the apps from my android to my KF. I downloaded the appsaver app to my phone to backup the apps, but I don't know where to go from there. Please help! Step by step in simple terms please!

    Go to settings, device then turn on allow installation of applications. Then you can download any file that ends in. Apo like facebook.Apo you can also download additional markets like 1mobile or getjar. I like 1moblie here's a link.

    How To Sideload Android Apps on the Amazon Kindle Fire in 3 Steps - Tested - How To Sideload Android Apps on the Amazon Kindle Fire in 3 Steps - Tested

    What I do:
    Use ES File Manager to backup the app I want, upload the apk to Box or Dropbox, download on KF and install.

    There are also sites like
    getjar
    1mobile
    handango
    apktop
    that you can use to download apps that are not in the Amazon Market.

    You can also transfer apps directly from an android phone to the Fire a couple of ways without having to upload and download from dropbox or box.net:

    1. Install Frostwire on both devices and transfer the apk over wifi from the phone to the Fire (it can sometimes work over 3g without wifi) - no need to make a backup first.
    2. Install Wifi File Explorer on your phone, make a backup of the apk, then connect to your phone from the browser on the Fire, and download the apk
