Can't disable ads My primary reason for getting this app was to be able to disable the LS ads. I have root access and granted permission to the app but it won't get rid of them.
Seems to get the job done...maybe? The popup menu that comes up whenever you click a category is annoying. Also, you can't tell if certain features have been enabled. I tried doing the lockscreen disable ads one, and rebooted, but the ads still appear. Also did the OTA disable, but I can't even tell if it actually is disabled or not because the options in the app doesn't even say if it is enabled or disabled. Would be useful if the app showed status changes on features that were installed or the user configured.
Does exactly as described. Obviously you need to go through the pains of rooting your kindle first. But, once you do, you'll be hard pressed to get any launchers working. Well thanks to this app, you're given a variety to choose from. I went for the Nova Launcher ( it installs the regular one), but I updated to the pro version since it also does you the favor of adding google play store to your kindle. Finally, the promise to disable the screen lock ads works as promised. I'll hold on to my $15. Thank you devs! This is a truly marvelous MUST-HAVE for Kindle Fire owners. PS- I have the 8.9HD
Not perfect but probably worth it anyway I don't buy a whole lot of apps but honestly I think this one was worth the money. It does give you the ability to run most of the best google apps but they aren't perfect by any means. The Gmail app works, but the scrolling seems to be a little messed up. Chrome is functional but still needs improvements. The ability to block the ads and install your own launcher are worth a lot more than $2 so overall I would say this is a good purchase. Looking forward to future updates! **What Brandon said was true about the Gmail notifications messing up the status bar. Make sure you turn off notifications for Gmail if you are having problems. Hopefully that will be fixed soon.
Works well in part My rooted Kindle responded well to the Google apps installation - finally I have Play store and "normal" YouTube on there. The ability to remove Amazon ads doesn't appear to work though (this is a 2012 Kindle Fire HD). Will try it on my other 2013 Fire HD7 later. Not the end of the world as far as I am concerned - worth it to get the extra apps and Market place on there! Well done.
Looks like this hasn't been updated for a while. The ads still work and you have to do an extra step to remove them yourself. Otherwise a great app.
Few UI Changes, made it easier to navigate the application.
