Kindle Fire enhanced with Spotify app

We have some fantastic news for those of you who are still rocking an Amazon Kindle Fire tablet. The Nexus 7 may be the new kid on the block, but we’re pleased to report that the Kindle Fire now has added support for the highly popular Spotify music service.

If you are a music lover, Spotify should now be part of your daily lifestyle anyway. It provides a thorough encyclopedia of all of your favorite tracks, the latest hits to some golden oldies and more. It has been available in desktop and mobile form for a long time now, but now it is branching out its tablet support.

Already available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, you’ll now be able to find it and download on the Amazon App Store as well. There’s some even better news as well, as if you don’t want to fork out on a premium subscription, you’ll still be able to download a free version, which is supported by ads but offers unlimited radio streaming.

Everyone has their favorite music apps, but we can’t really look past Spotify, it’s just that good. The obvious downside to the app is that it still isn’t available globally, with places like Hong Kong still yet to receive any love. If you were ever to make a $9.99 online purchase, you probably wouldn’t regret a subscription to Spotify Premium which gives you access to unlimited streaming without ads.

Now that Spotify has arrived on the Kindle Fire, what apps would you like to see next? Do you still see it lagging behind the iPad and now Nexus 7, or are you really happy with your $199 purchase?
