REVISED - Installing & Configuring the Amazon Appstore!

Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to install and configure the Amazon Appstore app on any tablet in Fuhu`s nabi product line.

For those of you wanting to access the Amazon.com Appstore (United States), please begin at Step 1
.  If you would like to install one of the other regional Appstores from Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain or the United Kingdom, skip down to here.


DO NOT SKIP SETTING THE PARENTAL &  
IN-APP PURCHASE CONTROLS. 

NOTE: If you are already using the Amazon Appstore on another Android device or have an Amazon.com account for product purchases, be sure to log in with same account.  This will allow you to install compatible apps that you've already paid for and prevent the need to manage multiple accounts.  These can be accessed under My Apps and then selecting the Cloud option.

Be sure to take advantage of Amazon's Free App of the Day, everyday!  If the free app is kid-friendly, I list it on my Fan-a-Tech Scott Facebook page.

Finally, to ensure that there are no unwanted or unexpected apps purchased and installed from the Amazon Appstore, it is highly recommended that you install and setup the Application Protection app.

Though I'd encourage everyone to read through the entire post, these links will take you to the various sections covered, if you're looking for something specific.

Unfortunately the Amazon Appstore is not available to Canadians."

Canadians be sure to check out this post for a method on how to access free apps from the Amazon Appstore.

Make sure that you have a credit card assigned to your account, in order to "purchase" free apps.

Is there any way to watch Amazon Prime videos on the Nabi 2?

I'm really interested in getting a nabi 2 for my daughter's birthday but don't want to be restricted of apps because of being located in Canada.

Is this still an issue?

I'm very technical and have experience with rooting, side loading and all that other fun android stuff.

Every time i start a download it pauses it before it finishes. What am i doing wrong?

No. You may be able to view them through a web browser, but Amazon has not made the app available to other Android devices, just their Kindle Fire product line.

It is most likely your wifi router. Reboot it.

great step by step instructions! Storia worked, netflix worked.... I do have a problem that I cannot seem to figure out. We are using our PC to store apps. We have 2 nabi 2 devices. I cannot seem to share apps between devices... what am I doing wrong? Netflix will not allow me to download onto both devices - it says that I have already downloaded it. It appears in the apps on the PC version, but will not show up on the second device. Please help! :-)

How are you moving apps between the PC and tablet?

I have set up my amazon account , everything is entered, cc, address, name, etc. when I go to download an app onto my nabi 2 tablet it tells me I need to add an address. What am I doing wrong. I need help before I blow up. Pls. Pls. Help.

i followed all the steps in the installing and configuring the amazon appstore. now i'm trying to download the kindle app and i keep getting this " there was an error purchasing Kindle for Android. Please click here to add an address to your account (this will open your browser) and try again." when i press where it says click here nothing happens. what am i doing wrong

Thank you, followed the steps and worked great! Tried to figure it out by myself for 4 hours prior. :-(

I installed the Amazon App Store using the directions provided. They worked great! How do I switch the Amazon account that is linked to the App Store app?

Thanks for the step-by-step instructions on installing the Amazon app! I bought my child the Nabi 2 because of the wonderful things I had heard about the support from Nabi and its fans!! After only a few days, I already can see I made the right choice.

Works great...it has all of the apps you can get on Kindle and most of the Google Play apps. This turns the Nabi so even when you kids out grow the "babyish" games and apps, you can download other apps like Angry Birds Star Wars, the old X-Men arcade game, etc. My kids were totally bored of the regular games and this brought it to a whole other level. When my kids go to bed I can use this just like a Kindle or Ipad, but this is more powerful than an Ipad or Kindle. Im just annoyed it took me since August to figure this out.

Doesnt work from ireland because my credit card is no supported I have been using amazon.co.uk for years now no problem purchasing stuff on my card just wont work on Nabi tired..... :-(

Do into Daddy Mode > Settings > Apps > Appstore > Clear Data. This will reset the app so that you have to sign in again to whatever account you want.

Thanks for the step by step instructions. I also managed to install the Amazon App Store using the directions and screen shots provided. Would never have been able to do this on my own! BUT I still cannot get the video call to work on Skype. The option for Front Camera shows during the voice call and the camera screen flashes up for a second, but the video doesn't work.

Do you foresee a LEGAL way for Canadians to access to access apps anytime soon?

Am I the only one who finds this business of fake name generating really sketchy?

I even got through setting up the account, but when I saw that I need to proxy or VPN, I lost it!

Remind me why I paid $200 for a tablet for my kids???

I am also having difficulty with the amazon app. I have entered a cc on the amazon site and each time I try to download I get the error to go and enter payment. I even changed my cc number. Am I missing a step? Trying to get this set up before Christmas! Thanks!

For the above comment, I reinstalled the app and made sure to logon with my Amazon account. Seems to have fixed the issues.

Well since Amazon removed access to Canadians last year without explanation and then skipped over us again this past fall when they expanded into France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom, I wouldn't hold your breath.

You have full access to purchase apps through the nabi App Zone.

This is just a non-supported method for Canadian parents to get free apps that are not in the nabi App Zone. If you don't want to go through the process, no one is forcing you to.

HELP! I have Nabi2 that I just got (I mean Santa) for my son for Christmas but cant seem to get any help on the following from tech support, online, etc. I want to give him the ability to watch the gagnam style mine craft video on youtube without having FULL access to all that is on YOUTUBE. I went to the browser in mommy mode and found it, added it to nabimode web but the screen just stays black on it. Then I heard that I was to download amazon apps, which i did, then the youtube di (so that I could dowload videos to youtube). I download them but they stay in the app--and again I don't want my child to be able to get to that app...I only want him to see the videos that I choose for him to see. HOW can I do this? Please, please help as Santa is supposed to have this all set up tomorrow night and I have been trying for days and days to figure this out...Thanks so much :)

The street address must not fall under as an acceptable address for Amazon.

NOTE: If Amazon does not accept the address that you provide, you can fine tune it by using Google Maps, locating the town and zip code and choosing an address. As nothing can be billed or shipped using this account, it doesn't manner what it is, as long as it exists.

If you are unable to resolve this please feel free to message me through my Facebook account, linked above.

OMG! :) No the Amazon Appstore is located under the All Apps icon at the top right corner of the tablet. (Six dots) Click and hold on the Amazon Appstore app and you can position it on your home screen.

All you need to do is clear data on the Amazon Appstore app and you'll be able to resign in using the other account.

Mommy Mode > Settings > Apps > All > Appstore > Clear Data.

Hi can someone help me. I live in Puerto Rico I downloaded amazon apps but its bot working. I have two sad girls waiting on mommy to figure it out.

I downloaded a game and paid for it. However it doesn't show up under paid apps on the nabi, but it shows up if I login to my account on my computer. Any thoughts?

I followed the parental controls for the in-app purchases. How do I disable the ability for my child to buy new apps? for example, I purchased an Amazon app and it comes with an option to purchase additional apps from this developer. I assumed that if my child clicked on this that he would be blocked from purchasing, but he was not. Is there a way to disable the Amazon one-click mechanism or log out of the Amazon app?

Hi, i have downloaded amazon app store (UK). everything is working fine, i am able to install apps onto my nabi and further onto nabi mode.
I have set up the amazon appstore so that the parental mode is enabled and also set up a pin to use when downloading apps. However each time i select an app it automatically downloads without asking me for a password or pin! Correct me if i am wrong but each time i try to download an app should i not be asked to input my pin??

Thanks for all your work on this!!! This put the Nabi over the top and more functional than all of the others.

I purchased an app fo my children through the Amazon app store. I set it up and configured it as described above and have enabled parental controls to not allow in-app purchases. The app has also been placed in nabi mode. However, my children are still making purchases from this app. How do I stop this?

The In-App Purchase control only prevents coins, energy, etc. for the specific game to be blocked. If the 3rd party app that you've installed and given them access to is able to launch the Amazon Appstore, then it has no prevention from allowing them to purchase apps. This is a flaw in implementation with the Amazon Appstore app, not something that can be addressed by Fuhu.

If this is the case, then the 3rd party app should be uninstalled.

Your logic is not incorrect, as this is how most markets work, just not the Amazon Appstore. Their controls are only for In-App purchases of coins, energy, etc. If the 3rd party app you've installed for your kids to play in nabi Mode, provides them access to the Amazon Appstore, then you'll want to uninstall it.

hi,
i'm having trouble with the parental controls for the amazon apps. i checked the boxes to "enable parental controls" and "use pin" and set up a pin but i can still go and purchase an app without having to enter a password. anybody know how to solve this? i don't want to end up with a huge bill when my kids figure out how to work this!
thanks!

Thanks so much Fan-a-Tech Scott! :)

I have downloaded the amazon app store and a few apps from there for both of my kids nabis. But the Kindle app is not working correctly. It works for a while then shuts down the Nabi (actually makes it shut down into sleep mode). The only way to use the Nabi after that is to restart it. I have cleared data on the app, uninstalled and reinstalled and nothing seems to help. Using it as an e-reader is the reason we bought the tablets. Nabi cares told me to call amazon and amazon then told me to call Nabi. Any suggestions? Please help!

I got the Amazon Appstore installed and working properly. However, they seem to have a poor selection of available appp's. I cannot even get apps for newspapers like USA Today and Centre Daily Times. These apps are available on google and Apple.

Okay so I've been able to download and install the amazon app store, and download games, however they seem to only work in Mommy/Daddy Mode, once i add them to Nabi Mode it doesn't seem to work. I get the error message unfortunately "name of app" has stopped working. Have i missed a step. Example, Ice Age Village App.

Not all apps that can be installed on the tablet, work in nabi Mode. Ice Age Village is a classic example of this.

I have followed the instructions and installed the amazon app store however when i try to download netflix i get a message that says i am unable to download due to geographical restrictions (i live in Ireland). This is the only app that this appears with i have downloaded other without any issue. Could anyone give me any hints about this (having netflix was one of the main reasons of getting my son a tablet!)

Netflix is one of those apps that has regional settings and controls, so it needs to be downloaded and installed from a regional Appstore. Are you using the Amazon.co.uk or the Amazon.com Appstore app? If you're using the Amazon.com Appstore, then you will need to uninstall it and install the Amazon.co.uk Appstore app. Note that any free or purchased apps that you've installed from the Amazon.com Appstore will not transfer to the Amazon.co,uk Appstore. These will need to be uninstalled and reinstalled.

Hello. I have a nabi 2 that I need to switch amazon accounts on. This problem was answered above with:

Do into Daddy Mode > Settings > Apps > Appstore > Clear Data. This will reset the app so that you have to sign in again to whatever account you want.

However, I am assuming this was with the original Nabi and not Nabi 2 as I have, apparently, no option for 'settings' in my daddy mode (unless I am just being really shortsighted) Please help!

In Daddy Mode, tap the All Apps icon (six blocks in the top right corner). From there scroll through the list of apps until you locate Settings.

Great instructions and great discussion in the comments.

As with some of the other parents, I have also found that some apps are able to launch the amazon appstore and the nabi does not prevent this - even though I disabled amazon appstore in the "add apps" menu in daddy mode. I assume that the add apps control only works at the UI level (i.e. it simply removes launch points or shortcuts to that app from the nabi UI) and does't actually prevent amazon app store app from running when in nabi mode (e.g. if it is launched from another app).

So, the question that I am now faced with is - is there an easy and reliable way to tell which apps can launch the app store app? If so, then I would just uninstall those apps or chose not to install them in the first place.

Install the Application Protection app referenced at the beginning of this post and you can prevent access to the Appstore itself, rather than removing other apps.

I am trying to install apps from the amazon appstore on an android device but I continue to get the below error:
"There was an error purchasing _____. Please click here to add an address to your account (this will open your browser) and try again."
I click the link but nothing occurs. Please help

I would suggest going online to the Amazon website logging into your account and modifying your payment settings.
