Evernote is more than just a notepad. For a start, it can store your text notes, photos, web pages, audio and screenshots and these are all backed up online.

As well as being able to use the Evernote android app on your Kindle Fire tablet, you can also use Evernote on your iPad or other tablet, online, on your cell or you can use the full software on either a Mac or standard PC.

Angry Birds Star Wars II

Angry Birds Star Wars II Free
Only $0.00

#2: Addictive Fun!

I'll admit it - I like Angry Birds. I never imagined that the idea of catapulting birds into the air and firing them at buildings and constructions made of various materials in order to hit the enemy pigs would appeal. But it does.

Angry Birds video games are pure fun for kids and adults and also frustratingly tricky at times too. Do try the free version of the Angry Birds app on your Kindle Fire. It does have some annoying ads but there is plenty of gameplay at no cost to you.

It's simple to play, just pull back the bird, aim and release it to fire. But is is a difficult game to master because you only get a certain amount of birds (or shots) in which to kill the pigs. Loved by kids and adults alike.

There are lots of Angry Bird Games for your Kindle but our family favorite is the new Angry Birds Star Wars game because the design and sound effects are awesome if you like Star Wars too.

Here's a fun resource page for Angry Bird themed paper folding and origami crafts. As a fan of the popular games, I enjoy making and crafting characters from paper.

#3: Kindle Fire Calendar App

Calengoo is a Kindle Fire app that can sync up you appoinments with Google Calendar. Many people use Google Calendar and CalenGoo integrates with that so you can view multiple calendars that you've set up, edit appoinments and make new ones.

If you're offline with your Kindle Fire, no worries. Just add in new tasks and appointments and then you can sync it up with Google Calendar when you hit a Wifi connection again.

View your calendars by a daily, weekly, monthly or agenda view. Calengoo also cleverly keeps all the colors you created for specific events or appointments and uses those on the Kindle Fire.

Drawing Pad

#4: Doodling for Kids and Adults

A full mobile art studio app for your Kindle Fire. Drawing Pad is simple enough for kids to use and has enough features for adults to enjoy drawing too. Kids will definitely love the 'stickers' that they can use to apply instant pics and patterns to their art.

On the right side of your Kindle Fire tablet, you'll see a virtual drawer stuffed with drawing media such as color pencils, marker pens, crayons, paintbrushes and more.

Select the art tool you want and then start doodling with your finger across the screen. If you goof up, there is an erase option. Like what you've done? Great, you can save your art and also share it by email, Facebook and Twitter.

Colornote Notepad App

ColorNote Notepad Notes
Only $0.00

#5: Quick, Short Notes

A handy little notepad app where you can make little text notes or to-do checklist style notes on your Kindle Fire. Perfect for making little notes or reminders to yourself when you don't need a full-fledged note-taking application.

Colornote also comes with a very useful reminder system so you can set an alarm to go off which will remind you to do something. Easy to use and great that you can set different colors for notes to differentiate between them.

#6: Read RSS Feeds?

Google Reader is a free RSS feed reader which works perfectly with the Kindle Fire. The interface is fast and slick, and you also have an offline viewing mode so you can still carry on reading even if your Fire isn't linked to a Wifi connection.

You can subscribe to new RSS feeds through the app and keep everything organized with website folders and tags. Share snippets or articles via email, Facebook or Twitter.

RSS Google Reader: gReader

gReader (Google Reader | RSS)
Only $0.00

#7: Difficult Puzzles

Quell is a really great puzzle game which gets those brain cells ticking over. With more than 80 levels from easy to frustratingly hard (but not impossible) there is plenty to enjoy.

The concept is very simple. You flick a raindrop in the direction you want it to move. The object of the game is for the raindrop to collect the golden pearls in as few moves as possible while avoiding any traps. And there are certainly lots of those as you advance.

#8: Curated Playlists

Find music based on what is interesting to you with tons of free, curated playlists you can listen to - free. Songza is a web radio that streams music to you.

You can find exactly what you like by searching for artists, songs, genres and also themes and eras. Discover music that perfectly matches your mood.

Like Kindle Fire apps, Songza only currently works in the US.

#9: Hot on Social Media?

Seesmic is a nifty little app that will cover most of your social media needs in one place. It integrates with Facebook, Twitter and Salesforce Chatter, combining your favorite social networking sites into 1 sleek interface.

Manage multiple Twitter accounts and post your current status to more than one account at the same time. Photos and videos can be shared using TweetPhoto, yFrog or TwitPic. View and post to Facebook. Many reviewers say it's the best Twitter app on the Kindle Fire.

#10: Interactive Digital Kids Book

The Peter Rabbit digital pop-up book is awesome. This really is the future of digital books and it shows you exactly what is possible when publishers work hard to give readers more than just a book.

Peter Rabbit is beautifully illustrated, features tons of interactivity for kids (and parents) to enjoy like sounds, music, things that pop-out and animation. The book can be read to you as well. A modern take on a charming book. I hope you've enjoyed reading my wizzles page today, thanks for your visit. You should hopefully have enough apps to keep you busy for some time.
