Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: iMediaShare and Bonus Pick

Today's Free App of the Day is iMediaShare
Originally $4.99

This app has bad reviews, but I tried it and, for playing on one's own device, it's a bit of a mixed bag. At least one review mentions having to log into Facebook; in the current version, you can skip that screen.

 The first videos that I tried worked flawlessly. I did have YouTube crash when I tried to use it. The next YouTube video I tried worked. The app passed off playing the YouTube video to TubeMate, which I have installed, without prompting.

 When I tried to view my photos, the app DID crash. Since I didn't get the app to look at photos, I'm not too unhappy about that.

 When watching videos or playing music, if you have multiple players installed, you are asked which of the other players you wish to use; the app is then played using that player. Videos I downloaded to the device were shown with their real name. I don't have a tv with internet connectivity, so wasn't able to test that feature.

7 of 18 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: TubeMate YouTube Downloader.


Because of the bad reviews, I'm adding a bonus pick, even though the app worked pretty well for me. You can browse YouTube videos within this app; and as discussed, it apparently becomes the default viewer for YouTube videos. Worked great and downloaded selected videos to my videos folder. 323 of 476 reviews are four stars and above.


These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
