The Wall Street Journal has officially unveiled their new Kindle Fire Application today. You can now download it for free from the Amazon Android App Store and has various subscription fees for content.
When you have the new WSJ app on your trusty Kindle Fire you can pay $17.99 per month for a full subscription. This gives you access to the online version of the paper and any application on the Android or iOS platform.
This was a smart move on the newspapers part to make an exclusive application because the platform is growing. Even though the Kindle uses Android, it is a very closed ecosystem and you can really only install applications available on their own app market. There is a way to bypass this by directly downloading apps from websites. We put together a Comprehensive Kindle Fire App List last month that gives you essential programs you need to get the most out of it.
