I love my Kindle Fire. It suits all my needs.
Apps I like:
Netflix - lets me watch movies and TV shows with an earpiece if I don't want to watch what my wife and kids are watching on TV.
Gear of the Day - daily deals on outdoors supplies from online dealers. I buy a lot of camping stuff.
Hulu Plus for Kindle
CatholicVote - Daily selection of news stories on Catholicism and Politics
Twitter - I don't want to waste my time seeing endless tweets on my phone, but can quickly scan through friends' tweets when I have time and nothing else constructive to do.
Trail to Eagle - tracks my sons' Boy Scout requirements, plus all the current requirements for any merit badge.
IMDB - I'm a movie geek, so it;s handy to quickly look up cast, crew, soundtrack listings, trivia, etc., about any movie.
MapQuest - handy for route selection
iHeartRadio - handy app - can pull up radio stations from all over the country and listen live to them, can search by city and genre. TuneinRadio does the same, can pull up Catholic Radio Stations like Immaculate Heart Radio. Nice if I want to listen to talk radio in another city.
The Weather Channel and the Accuweather ap- useful for weather forecasts in every city. Plus, I have a neurotic desire to know exactly when the sun will rise and set.
aTilt - the only real game I play. Kind of addictive.
eVotions: John Paul II - Prayers, writings, photos, videos.
Flixster - pulls up local movie locations and show times.
