Second Method To Transfer Your .APK (App) file - Connect The Next3 To Your Computer
Use the supplied USB cable and connect your Next3 to your computer.
Wait for the computer to see it. If you have an SD Card in the Next3. Two windows will pop up. One for the internal memory, the other for your SD card.
If the computer does not pop up the windows, double click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop or click the "START" button, in the bottom left of your screen and choose "My Computer" from there. If you still don't see the icons for the Next3 and a new removable drive letter. Right click on the "My Computer" window and select "Refresh" from the menu that comes up. Double click on the new drive letter that comes up under "Removable drive". You can put the file on the window that says "Next3", but it might be harder to find in your internal memory.
Now find the file that says "com.amazon.kindle" which you downloaded on your computer. Use your mouse to right-click on it. Select "Copy" from the menu.
Go to the window which opened up when you double-clicked on the new drive letter in "My Computer". Use the mouse to right-click anywhere in that window and select "Paste" from the menu that come up. This will put the Kindle file on your the SD Card in your Next3.
Go down to the Menu Bar where your "START" button is. Move your mouse all the way to the left of the lower screen. You will see icons there. Move your mouse over them until you find the one that says "Remove device safely" or something like that. Double click on that icon. A small window will come up. Click on the first lint in that box. It should have the USB symbol on it. Then click the button that says "Stop". The computer will tell you when it is safe to remove Next3 from the computer by removing the cable from your computer. You can leave the end of the cable attached to your computer if you like, but immediately remove the end attached to your Next3.
After you remove your Next3 from the computer. Wait for the bar at the top of the Next3 to return to normal. Then click on the middle icon at the bottom of the Next3 screen. That will bring you to your Apps.
Click on the App that says "Explorer". It will bring up a page with two lines. If you DID NOT put the file in the window that said "NEXT3" when it was attached to your computer, tap the line that says "SD Card". You should see the file you transferred, "com.amazon.kindle", there.
Tap, "com.amazon.kindle" . Follow the directions to install the app. When you go back to your App screen you should see the Kindle app there.
If you want to move it to your home screen. Press on the icon until it moves and the home screen comes back. Without letting up pressure, move your finger and the icon wherever you want it on the screen. Then remove your finger.
You should be able to tap the icon on the home page or app screen and have the Kindle app come up. It will ask you to register with your Amazon e-mail and password. Then you can use the app. It should sync automatically.
All of our computers still run Windows XP. The wording may be different if youhave Vista or Win7. It will definetly be different if you have a MAC. If you have anymore questions, please ask. I hope I didn't forget any steps. Please excuse any typos.
Hope this helps.
