Hi Gregory,

Thanks for your interest in TextNow!

You can access the TextNow application via the Amazon app store on your phone. The only version available through Amazon is slightly outdated. I would encourage you to use an Android/ iOS device for the best TextNow experience. We also have a desktop application available for download, simply follow this link, https://www.textnow.com/downloads

I had looked in the Amazon app store for the Fire phone and just searched again without finding it.  Only a TextMe app seemed present.  Perhaps another name?

I guess I could grab the Google Play version for android, back it up to cloud storage and then 'restore' it to the Fire phone to see if that version would work since many other apps do.

Or, I could go the hard way and install the Google Play to the Fire phone and use it directly.

Hi Gregory,

I apologize for the trouble you're having with downloading the app, as the application is made for the Android and iOS phones, but you can try using this download link! It's the Amazon purchase link for the Kindle.

Thank you anyway.  The Amazon App link indeed let me purchase the item; however, since it says it is incompatible with my Fire phones, it will not let me download it. :(  I'll try 'my way' of restoring from another device to load a version and see if it works.  Too many Fire phones lying about not to make use of them.

UPDATE:

For anyone else that cares; I did grab the Google Play version for android and installed it on an equivalent android version as the base for the Fire phone , I backed it up to cloud storage and then 'restored' it to the Fire phone to see if that version would work since many other apps do.  The TextNow app seems to work just fine, so far, on the Amazon Fire phone using the WiFi.  Now I'll pop in the TextNow SIM and manually configure the correct APN for the phone and get using it!
