Hi, I have a print subscription to Charisma and just recently purchased a Kindle Fire. I would like to be able to use my Charisma subscripton w/ my Kindle Fire. How do I do that?

    Hi David,

    You should be able to access your Charisma Digital subscription using the Kindle Fire's default web browser (Amazon Silk) just like you would on a Mac/PC computer:

    1) Open any digitial issue: http://strang.imirus.com/Mpowered/boo...

    2) Click on the "Login" button across the top navigation bar and log in using your email and password.

    3) Select the "Issues" tab on the right and select the issue you'd like to access.

    Here is something to keep in mind: Just like on a Mac/PC browser the "Full" button in the top menu will send the digital issue into full screen mode. This at first seems like a great idea, but it also disables the digital issue's zoom-in bar that's normally on the right-hand side of the screen. You have to rely on the double-tap method of zooming in, which doesn't zoom in nearly enough, and often renders the text difficult to read. Sadly this makes that "Full" button almost useless. If the Fire's browser had it's own fullscreen option (something it's sorely lacking) then you could use that and things would work very nicely. Hopefully they'll add that functionality soon.

    I've also tested the Charisma Digital using the "Dolphin Browser HD" (a popular Android OS browser) and was very happy with how it. If you're tech savvy you could install that browser and you'll probably end up making it your default browser. Since Amazon doesn't allow it on their Amazon Marketplace you'd have to download the .apk file, move it on to your fire and install it using a file explorer. I'd be happy to give you all the steps to do this, just let me know.

    I hope this helps. If you have any additional questions just let me know (you can reply to this thread or email me at drew.glaser@charismamedia.com).

    Thanks!

    Hi again David,

    Someone just let me know that we have an actual Android app for Charisma Digital that we'll be submitting to the Android and Amazon Marketplaces around the 15th. I don't know how long after submission it'll be before the app is available, but I'll keep you updated.
