    Hello all,

    My family and I became accustomed to pulling up the Kindle Cloud Reader via Chrome on our Google TV and reading a Classic together (Treasure Island, Swiss Family Robinson, etc ...). Amazon just uploaded the Cloud Reader to exclude Android Devices. The reason for this change is because there exists a Kindle app for Android. I've tried to sideload the Kindle app onto my Google TV and it crashes on start up. I've installed the Rotation app and still no luck. Does anyone have a work around for this?

    Thanks,

    Shannon

    Are you using a Revue?

    Are you able to download this with your Revue? I just rebooted my router, but I still get "can't open file".

    Yes it works with my Logitech Revue (OS 3.1). I don't even have the orientation control app installed on my Revue.

    Do you have the "Unknown Sources" box checked in your settings that allows installation of non-market applications? Also since you are on OS 3.2 perhaps having the orientation control app installed would make a difference?

    The procedure I followed was that after I downloaded the APK to my Revue - I opened the app through ES File Explorer.

    I'm not sure but perhaps the fact that you are located outside of USA might have something to do with it not opening for you?

    Good luck!

    I downloaded the free "Set Orientation" app. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.googlecode.eyesfree.setorientation . Don't know if it will fix the problem.

    For the Kindle to be viewable in the File Explorer, it would need to have been opened (successfully downloaded). Since it can't be opened, that's not an option.

    If anyone has the Revue outside the U.S., are you able to open this .apk?

    Great. I've got it now. The first time around, I couldn't find it in ES File Explorer. Since, I couldn't open it, I deleted it. Then, I downloaded the Set Orientation app. To follow your advice, I downloaded a second time. I didn't try opening it directly, but rather went to ES FIle Explorer. I did find it there this time. So I opened it within that app. One more application notch in the belt!
