Kindle Fire Users

Slideme is the easiest way to get the Freading® app for your Kindle Fire. Make sure you have enabled “Download from unknown sources” in the device settings. This is different depending on the model of Kindle Fire. In general this is done by:

  1. Opening your notifications bar.
  2. Select “More” to go to your device’s settings.
  3. Select “Device.”
  4. Slide bar to ON for “Allow Installation of Applications From Unknown Sources”.

  3. Click the button that reads “Download” located right above the app’s description.
  4. The application will download, but will not install automatically. Once the file downloads, look for a notification indicating there has been a download. Typically this will display in the notification bar at the top of the screen, and you will be able to drag down from the top to view the recent downloads. If you do not see it here, please look under “My Downloads” within your browser. You will be able to find this within your browser’s menu.
  5. Tap the download, and this will begin the installation process.
  6. Once installed, you will need to authenticate your app with an Adobe ID. You will be able to do this by clicking the menu button within the app and selecting “My Account.”
