  1. I just went to the Amazon app store and it says it is not available for my fire. Does it have to be a HD or HDX Fire?

    • Hello Gail,
      The OneNote app is supported on a number of Amazon devices: Kindle Fire HD 7 (2nd Gen), Kindle Fire HD 8.9 (2nd Gen), Kindle Fire HDX 7 (3rd Gen), Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 (3rd Gen), and Fire phone.
      “What Kindle Fire do you have?

      • Oh! I have the original Kindle Fire. I just ordered a Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 and should get it next week. I have VERY excited to be able to use OneNote on the Kindle! I LOVE OneNote and tell everyone how great it is!

  2. Good news for Android.
    I will download this.


  3. I really want to get OneNote installed (incidentally, why doesnt the webapp work?) Trying this on my Fire HD, when i search the Kindle app store, I don’t find OneNote. When tap the link in this blog, it takes me to the OneNote install in the app store. When I tap Get App, I get an error that says ‘OneNote is incompatible with your device. You cannot purchase this app from this device.”

    I have what I believe is a Fire HD 2nd generation. It was free, so not like I researched before buying. Box says Fire HD, 8GB, dual-core 1.5GHz. Researching serial, pretty sure this is 2nd gen device. Any thoughts on why OneNote wont install? Researching Amazon support as well.

    • I believe you may have a 3rd generation Fire HD. Your Kindle specs seem to match up to one I recently purchased. After multiple calls with Amazon, there is a 3rd generation Fire HDs (which I have) besides the HDXs. Currently the OneNote App looks to only be available for the 2nd generation Fire HD and new Fire HDXs in the Amazon App store. Is Microsoft planning to release OneNote for the 3rd generation Kindle Fire HD?

      • rk – Sorry for the confusion, the problem is that OneNote is set to work only on devices which have a microphone and the 7″ HD doesn’t have a mic and therefore OneNote will not install on that device. It works on the other Android devices running 4.x and have a microphone.

        • Pardon me, but that is the most brain-dead reason to block or invalidate the install. I’d venture to say that 99% of OneNote users don’t use any functionality that requires a microphone. We use it for notes, not dictation. By some articles/accounts, the Kindle Fire HD (who cares the version) is the best Android tablet on the market. Microsoft (and Amazon) *need* to make OneNote work on *all* Amazon tablets. I will be writing this up on Amazon as well, but the Kindle Fire is the most awesome…. ly frustrating tablet I’ve touched. Form factor is absolutely perfect for my hands (I’m 6’3″ with normal 6’3″-person hands.) But the software and app availability absolutely sucks and is incredibly frustrating. This will never be the ‘one platform’ tablet I’m looking for, though I want it to be. Cannot give up the iPad or a true Android tablet in the absence of equivalent apps on the Fire. Make the apps (especially the business apps) equivalent and I’d leave my iPad at home. Sorry to gripe on Msft blogs about Amazon and iPad, but it’s the Msft Apps that I absolutely require on my tablets.
