Amazon Kindle Fire HD gets update to 7.2.2; update includes Kindle Free Time Unlimited
Just a few days ago, we told you that an update for Amazon Kindle Fire users was on the way. So you shouldn't be too surprised when we tell you that the update, to software version 7.2.2, is now making its way to Amazon Kindle Fire units. As we told you the other day, the update brings with it the Kindle Free Time Unlimited capabilities that give your kids the chance to find appropriate content on the tablet. Designed for those in the 3 to 8 year old bracket, each kid will get an individual profile and home screen space.  Apps have had commercials and social media removed and in-app purchases are disallowed. It's almost like having a separate Amazon Kindle Fire for you and one for your children. Amazon Prime members must pay $2.99 for the service for one child, or $6.99 for the whole family. If you aren't an Amazon Prime member, those prices jump to $4.99 and $9.99 respectively.

In addition, the content available with the service includes just about every movie or television show made for kids. Amazon has really come up with a feature that parents will find useful and kids will just love. In such a highly competitive tablet market, Kindle Free Time Unlimited can be the  difference between parents buying an Apple iPad mini or deciding on an Amazon Kindle Fire HD instead. Those that decide on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD or the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 can receive one free month of Kindle Free Unlimited by clicking on the Kindle Free Time app before January 15th 2013

In addition to Kindle Free Time Unlimited, the update allows you to now take pictures using the front facing camera. And Swype has been added to the tablet allowing you to type by swiping your fingers over the virtual QWERTY keyboard. The update has rolled out OTA, so installing it should be a breeze. Look out for the new software which should hit your Amazon Kindle Fire at any time.
