Amazon Maxthon not Approved for Kindle Fire HD


Maggard

Recommended Posts

The Maxthon website link to "Maxthon for Amazon Kindle Fire" opens the Amazon.com page in the browser instead of opening the App Store of the Kindle Fire. This may because the Maxthon Browser App is not approved for this service.

.:.

In the webpage opened, it shows if your registered devices are able to install the App. Unfortunately, Kindle Fire HD is marked as not compatible with Maxthon Browser. Also, searching for Maxthon or the Amazon Part Number fails to find either when searching in the Kindle Fire App Store area.

.:.

Please, if the Maxthon Browser remains incompatible with the Kindle Fire HD, update the link to a page providing the APK for download with instructions on how to side-load the APK. I prefer being the release from Maxthon.com then a 3rd Party website.

Thank you.

The link on Maxthon.com for the Amazon Kindle Fire links to:

The link needed to d/l the Maxthon Android Browser APK file to Side-Load the App until the Kindle version is approved for compatibility is available in the Discussion Thread discussed in the 2014-09-24 reply below. If you know how to side-load, here is the APK:

Edited to set THREAD TYPE to "Android Issue" as the reply below instructs me to use the Maxthon.com link which connects to the same Amazon Maxthon Browser that my post states is NOT Compatible with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD.

Please q.v. my replies below is this post is unclear.

Found the APK files for Android. This can be downloaded & side-loaded to use on Amazon's Kindle Fire HD until Maxthon gets the Amazon version approved.

Please read my post. The Maxthon Browser App linked from Maxthon.com to Amazon.com is NOT compatible to the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. The link opens the web page in the browser instead of connecting to the Kindle Fire App Store:

http://www.amazon.com/Maxthon-Mobile/dp/B004VMTI42/

.:.

The entry on Device Compatibility shows the Maxthon Browser is NOT compatible with the Kindle Fire HD (System Version: 7.4.9). There is no way to download the Maxthon Browser App to the Kindle Fire HD from Amazon.com.

Is anyone able to install the Maxthon Browser on their Kindle Fire HD from Amazon.com? Their Customer Service says Maxthon must ensure their App passes the requirements for installation before I'll be able to install the App.

If anyone knows where the APK is available for D/L, please post the link below. As long as it isn't to the Amazon entry linked above. Thank you.

« Workaround »

Until Maxthon is able to get the Amazon Kindle approved for compatibility with the Kindle Fire HD, users can side-load Maxthon Browser onto their device.

« Side-Load APK »

Note: Only side-load applications NOT available from Amazon.com or when features are not yet in the Kindle version.

1. In settings ensure it is set to allow installation of programs from 3rd Party websites.

2. Download the latest APK files for Maxthon Browser on Android.

( If the APK file for the Kindle version is available, use it instead for improved compatibility. )

3. Use a file explorer app to open the location the APK is downloaded.

( The web browser used may allow access to the d/l ALL files, which is easier if it allows execution... )

4. Execute the APP file, usually by tapping twice or tap & hold, then select Run, Install or Execute. The exact option selected depends on the App used in step 3 above.

5. Answer the prompts to complete the installation.

Good Luck!!!

Bing / Google / Search "Side-Load APK on Kindle Fire" for additional reference.

« Discussion Thread Location »

Here is where I found the Discussion Thread which includes the APK file to sideload if needed. It also includes installation files for Windows & Linux...
