= Sideload Android App to Kindle Fire =
 
Download: [http://ezbells.com/dl/ChurchBellRemote.apk ChurchBellRemote.apk] to transfer to your Android device via USB. The instructions below describe downloading from the device's browser.
Amazon created the Kindle to sell apps through their own app store. For this reason, the Play store is not available for downloading Chime Master Apps. Until a Fire version of the apps are available, they must be sideloaded.
# Select Apps from the top menu. Start the Shop Amazon app from the shopping cart icon. Type ‘ES File’ in the search bar. When you see ES File Explorer in the list under Apps and Games, select it. Tap ‘Buy from the app store,’ then tap the gold button labeled ‘FREE,’ twice and it will turn green ‘Get App’ so tap it a third time. The button eventually becomes a download status bar graph.
# Tap the home button at the bottom, swipe down for status, tap the top right gear to open settings, find and open Applications. The top option is Apps from Unknown Sources and will be set to Off. Tap On to enable this option and the system will warn you about the safety of this option so Tap to accept the warning. This is a temporary setting until the remote app is loaded.
# Tap the home icon. Open the Silk Browser. In the URL bar type ‘chimemaster‘ezbells.com/downloaddl' and a login screen will pop up. Call 800-344-7464 for the latest login credentials and type them in. Scroll scroll down the page until you find links to the Mobile App Store and Google Play. Just under that will be a paragraph describing the Kindle Fire with a link to the Android APK. Tap the link to download the file. Complete the action using ES File Explorer. The browser may ask for the login credentials again (no cookies).
# When downloading is complete, tap Open the Folder. This will open ES File Explorer in the Downloads folder. Long press on the ChurchBellRemote.APK file and select the scissors icon at the bottom of the page to cut it from the download folder. If we are a new user of the device, it will continue to give us tips along the way that need to be observed and canceled.
# At the top of the ES File Explorer app, tap the left side of the header to select the parent directory listed to the left of Download (this may be different for you, it is labeled ‘0’ for us). Tap the ‘+’ icon at the bottom of the screen to create a new folder and name it ‘OtherApps.’ Tap OtherApps to open the folder and tap the clipboard icon at the bottom to Paste the app here.
