Default Kindle Fire

If you own a new Kindle Fire, don't worry, you WILL be able to read the books you downloaded, even if you are in the sun without the glare screens. You Will also be able to see and play any of the games you downloaded without a glare screen.
However, you WILL NOT be able to see your Emails, facebook or some other apps you may have downloaded, the glare screen just does not work outside in the sun. Also, at LaCabana we paid for wifi and almost every single time I got on line, I was kicked off as were our friends. Don't waste your money. Go upstairs over the lobby and use the computers for free.

Was there in Dec. for 2 weeks. When I went to my book apps on the Kindle Fire automatically went to a different color background for ease of reading in the sun. It was a more grayish/white background. Enlarge the print, the screen gets even brighter. A friend gave me the anti-glare screens for me to try so I could read my emails and browse the internet, they did not work at all. Amazon is trying to fix all these issues.
