Video: Firestarter – Amazon Cloud Reader support for the Nokia N9 and N950

| August 20, 2012 | 30 Replies

This is a useful app, an Amazon Cloud reader for the Nokia N9.

Firestarter makes it possible to use Amazon’s Cloud Reader service under MeeGo. You can either read books online, or download them for reading offline (although you must be online when starting the application). Your progress in a book is kept synchronised between your N9 and other Kindle devices.

Michael: Update: Many of you are asking where to get the app. It is currently undergoing Nokia Store Q&A, so it should be available soon. I’ll do my best to try and post it on here as soon as it does.

    Thanks Jay,

    But you don’t link to project/dev home page?

    • Shane

      Okay so it hasn’t passed QA, but surely you could still link to a project page at maemo.org or elsewhere? TIA.

      @MyNokiaBlog

      Here is the section for this app on the devs site:
      http://meego.mikeasoft.com/firestarter/
      He will do a detailed blog post or start a thread at TMO ONCE the app appears at the Nokia Store.

      These are his other MeeGo apps

    nokia belle support?

    • http://blog.mikeasoft.com Mike Sheldon

      I’ve been working on Nokia Belle support, and now have everything mostly working. It still needs a bit of polish, but it certainly seems achievable.

      Here are a couple of screenshots of it running on a Nokia 808:

        @Mike

        N9/950 still the priority I hope? :-)
        Symbian has always had far more love from Nokia over the yrs (& still does in many ways) than Maemo 5/6.

        • http://blog.mikeasoft.com Mike Sheldon

          Don’t worry, MeeGo is still my main mobile development platform. However for this particular app I was able to share most of the core codebase between the MeeGo version and the Symbian version, which is why I was able to make a Symbian port so quickly (despite not having worked with Symbian since it was EPOC32…) So most future improvements will happen in both versions simultaneously :).

            Interesting, thanks for the feedback mate, tis appreciated!

  • Ajmal

    Where is the App?

    • Sean

      According to the Video it should be available in the Store ‘soon’

  • Sammyl

    Cool! Where can I get the app?

  • @AndyHagon

    Excellent! Let’s hope Nokia QA get their finger out and get this great-looking app up in the Store quickly. Looking forward to reading my Kindle books on my N9! :)

  • loser

    can we upload .prc file to the server and start reading?

    • Shane

      meaning?

    • Shane

      Thanks for letting us know Mike!
      Might be best emailing tips[at]mynokiablog or jay[at]mynokiblog or contacting them via twitter.
      That way they’re much more likely to canvass the app soon.

    • Shane

      @Mike

      Make sure you also post about it at: N9-apps, My-MeeGo, talk.maemo.org etc.
      If you intend to offer it for free, you can also list it at apps.formeego.org.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100%
    certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

    clear their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph which

    Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about
    your situation; many of us have created some nice procedures
    and we are looking to exchange strategies with others, why not
    shoot me an email if interested.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.

    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where
    to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
