This installed on my Kindle Fire (2nd gen, not HD), without problem. Works flawlessly with the Wi-Drive (also sold at Amazon.com). This app along with the Wi-Drive allows one to transfer, copy, or delete files between devices....IT ALSO allows one to RUN FILES (such as music, video, etc) DIRECTLY FROM THE Wi-Drive for use on your Kindle, PC, MP3, cellphone, etc...WITHOUT HAVING TO TRANSFER ANY DATA. So you can have music, video (documents, etc), STORED on the Wi-Drive WHILE VIEWING them on your Kindle, PC, MP3, cellphone. This is great if you don't want to take up additional memory on your device, but want the convenience of easy (anytime access) to your content, it's also great for back-up.
Of Note: the Wi-Drive is a WiFi storage device (from 16GB- 128GB), that can connect via USB to a PC, MP3, cellphone, etc. for charging &/or data transfer.......the Wi-Drive CAN ALSO DIRECTLY CONNECT TO a KINDLE, PC, mp3, cellphone, etc., via WiFi as the Wi-Drive is itself it's own WiFi source (so that if you turn on the Wi-Drive's OWN WiFi you can share data from 1-3 devices simultaneously without the need for a wifi router or hotspot, but also allows you to use it in Bridge Mode with a wifi router). For those of us who have complained about the Kindle's lack of expandable memory for easy data storage, the Wi-Drive (while a lot more expensive than a memory card), serves well. The Wi-Drive is a bit smaller (in size and weight) than a traditional cellphone. To use the Wi-Drive (which comes boxed with a Mini-to-USB power cord with a detachable USB-wall outlet adapter, and brief manual that can also be found at[...]/support/widrive), press the power button on the upper right side of the device (it will light, green is fully charged, yellow partially charged, red low charge), wait a moment until you see a small flashing blue light on the upper front of the Wi-Drive (that indicates that the WiFi is turned-on and is "active"), then use this App (of course first making sure that WiFi is also turned-on on your device/ Kindle, PC, cellphone, etc.). To charge the Wi-Drive plug a micro-USB into the Wi-Drive and the USB into a PC, or into a wall outlet as the Wi-Drive comes with a USB cord as well as the USB wall outlet adapter. The Wi-Drive evidently, can store any type of file; the manual indicates that IT CAN OPEN (without the need of a third party app) the following types of files: TXT, PDF, DOC, DOCX, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, MP3, MIDI, OGG, WAV, MP4.
To use this Wi-Drive App, touch the APP to open it (after you've first turned on the WiFi on the Wi-Drive and your Kindle (or PC, MP3,etc, and have verified that you are connected....on the Kindle Fire go to wireless settings > select "on" > under available networks you will see "Wi-Drive," after connecting the first time it will thereafter connect automatically when wifi is turned-on for both devices ).
On your Kindle (PC, Mp3, cellphone. etc), you will see on screen: two lines (1).. searching Wi-drive (that will quickly change to "Wi-Drive") and (2).."Local Storage" (on your Kindle, Pc, Mp3, etc). to view files on the Wi-Drive tap the line that says "Wi-Drive". To view files on your Kindle, PC, MP3, etc Tap "Local Storage". IMPORTANT: to do anything with the files you have found (on the Wi-Drive, or Kindle, etc) you MUST PRESS AND HOLD THE FILE SELECTED UNTIL A SUB-MENU APPEARS ON SCREEN, as that will be the only way to transfer, copy, or delete files (unless the Wi-Drive is connected to a PC via USB). WHEN THE SUB-MENU APPEARS JUST SELECT THE DESIRED ACTION an continue to use this app to deal with the files as desired.
For example, to play a video that you've stored on the Wi-Drive: select "Wi-Drive" (not Local Storage), browse to the desired file and then tap/touch the file...if you tap it, it will start playing using your Kindle's default application, if you touch it for a moment or two, you will have the option to copy or transfer it into your Kindle's Local Storage. This works for PDF, EPUB, Txt, Mp3, picture files etc. If you have created a drawing, document, etc on your Kindle....select "Local Storage" > browse to the desired file > tap & hold the selected file > select the desired action (e.g., "Copy To") > if you've selected "copy to" as the desired action then > go to "Wi-Drive" (instead of "Local Storage") and > select the folder (if any) where you want to store the document, book, drawing, etc.
While I like the "ES File Explore" APP for generally browsing files, Just REMEMBER TO CARRY OUT FILE EXPLORATION, such as copy, transfer FROM WITHIN THE WI-DRIVE APP. It's really rather straightforward once you've used it a couple of times. And frankly, once you've have used it a few times you might find yourself acknowledging (as I did) how easy it is to use, despite any initial trepidations.
