      kindle fire HDX why haven't you fixed the flash player app for kindle!? there are of course alternatives but i have depended on Adobe for two decades! you're the company that I have built a long term relationship with. and am disappointed that I can't depend on the finest quality company in my opinion anymore. come on people you have a lot of people that are having to go to alternative apps that i would rather not do. kindle fire HDX is what I use know so return some of that loyalty back to us that have been working with you for years. The FLASH player won't work on my device. Simple fix right! So get on with it then send me an email notification, ok thanks sincerely abel guerrero.

          There is no more Flash Player for Android and there won't be another. Android is no longer compatible with Flash Player since June of 2012. That WON'T change.

          Historically:

           

          2008 (March) - Apple® releases the first iPhone, using iOS®. Steve Jobs is insistent and adamant that iOS® is NOT compatible with Flash® and NEVER WILL BE. Jobs' reasoning is that playing Flash® content is processor consumptive and it drains batteries, thus shortening the life of them in mobile devices. In six years, that hasn't changed. Not for the iPhone®, iPad® or iPod® Touch™. It never will change and there never will be a Flash Player® for iOS®.

          2008 (September) - Google® introduces Android™ to compete with iOS®, for people who don't want to pay what Apple® is asking for an iPhone®. Android®, unlike its Apple® counterpart IS compatible with Flash®.

          2012 (June) - Android™ (Google®) announces the end of support for Flash® with Android™ 4.3. Going forward NO Android™ devices will be compatible with Flash®, but older versions on older devices can still be loaded with "legacy" builds still available from Adobe®. Android™ (Google®) cites the same reason Apple® did for the decision to end support for Flash®. Adobe® continues to release security patches to Flash Player® for Android™ until September 2013, announcing the "end of life" for Android™ Flash® September 10.

           

          Android (Google) recommends you use either Dolphin or Puffin as your browser if you must view Flash content, but they try to discourage it for the above outlined reasons.

            Adobe stopped supporting Flash player for mobile devices a while back. You can still sideload the last supported mobile version of Flash to your HDX and then use a flash supported browser to view flash sites. I would read this: http://flashplayerkindlefire.com
