Welcome to another Good e-Reader Video! Today Michael and Peter walk you through the magazine experience on the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. This tablet is mainly billed as an e-reader and Amazon sells a wide selection of magazines to purchase. If you are thinking about making the move from tangible, to digital, or just looking for that perfect device to read your monthlies, this video is for you.
Overall, Amazon basically deals with every major publisher and you can think of magazines as apps. The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 runs on a heavily skinned version of Google Android. Bringing magazines over into the ecosystem warrants a dedicated app, using the Amazon SDK. What this means, is that from publisher to publisher the entire magazine experience will be different.
