Amazon Kindle Fire OS 3.1 adds Second Screen and Goodreads integration

When it comes to tablets, Amazon has a fair share of the pie with its Kindle Fire line, but aside from new hardware releases, there isn't much attention paid to the platform. The general thinking seems to be that the Kindle Fire line are less of tablet devices and more e-readers on steroids. That isn't quite accurate on the system level (though it may be on the app level), and it shows in the new Kindle Fire OS 3.1 update...

Yet still no native music support for the FreeTime app. If you have children and your looking for a tablet and they enjoy music you might want to stay away from the Kindle Fire series. You can select which apps, books and videos can be accessed in FreeTime which adds a lot of granular control but when it comes to music they have completely shut it out. Unless you get a third party app that doesnt allow you to control which music they listen to of your library nor will it let you stream the music meaning it must be local on the tablet. Very annoying.
