How to Get Instagram for Kindle Fire (HDX)

instagram for kindle fire

Instagram is the most popular image social app, which is available for almost all smart phones and tablets. You can also find it Amazon’s official appstore by searching “Instagram“.

But look at the users reviews, you will find things are not so simple.

  • I have a kindle fire and I find it uncool about the fact I CAN NOT USE MY INSTAGRAM AT ALL I CAN NOT POST ANY PICTURES
  • Not compatible with my Kindle fire HDX??????!!!!! That’s so not fair!!!
  • why is this not compatible with my kindle fire hd??? this seems a bit ridiculous
  • It wouldn’t work for my kindle. I really wish they would get an app for the kindle fire hd that works

Well, for an app get from official Amazon appstore, it’s not compatible with Amazon’s device, that’s ridiculous. What’s worse, in some Amazon appstores out of US, we even cannot find instagram app.

Therefore, we need a solid universal way to get Instagram for Kindle Fire tablets, including HD and HDX.
