Is the jriver app not available for a Fire tablet?

Tried to download, but got a message that my device is incompatible with the app.

Obviously seems as though I'm out of luck, but I thought it was weird to not be able to get the app.

    The Fire devices are odd ducks in that regard...I was hoping to use a Fire tablet I have had laying around as my Roon remote but no app for them.

    Thanks Ryan.

    Not a big deal since I have the app on my phone and on an iPad, but would have been nice for how I was wanting to use it.

    “Google” adding Google Play on a kindle fire. You can side-load Google Play then download apps from the play store. I’m running Roon on a Fire 8 and it works fine.

    And this is why I went ahead and asked what I thought was a dumb question. Seems as though someone always has a solution around this place.

    Playing jriver through my Fire as I type this:)

    Thanks!

    @PSOVLSK How do u like jriver? I’ve been using a squeezebox touch but now that I have an oppo bdp105 hardwired to my network I’m looking for a better option. Thanks.

    I like it, but I've never used anything else so I don't really have a point of reference. I'm pretty much a novice at this digital music thing, but I still found it fairly easy to set up and use.

    I pretty much just choose an album or song I want to listen to and that's it. In other words, I haven't really spent any time making playlists, etc. I've made some very simple playlists (ie: Van Halen) and it will automatically play all of my Van Halen albums.

    It doesn't (or I haven't figured out how to) allow random play of an artist or genre using jremote unless you make the aforementioned playlist. This can be done on the computer though.

    I think the sound quality is great, but again I have no point of reference other than Amazon Music so...

    Maybe others will chime in with more info for you.
