    I followed the directions yet each time the fire hd 7 directs me to the amazon app store and then does not allow me to download the app. I do not have a lap/desk top to circumvent the problem. Any ideas?

      I figured it out. I was using Firefox as a browser and not silk. Silk let me do the download.
