Since April 2010, the industry has been waiting for a genuine competitor to the iPad. While there are dozens of Android tablets on the market, none have made a serious dent in Apple's market share, which is hovering at a healthy 80% of tablet sales
Enter the Kindle Fire.

The best place to start a discussion on creating a usable mobile app is to make sure we’re all on the same page on the definition of ‘usable’.
What’s the difference between usable and useful?
Useful – A useful app makes your life, or a task in your life, easier. For example, most mobile banking apps are useful – they let you check your bank balance on the go, or transfer money from account to account. Very useful when you’re on your way to the airport and realize you may not have the funds to cover a big check you just wrote.
Usable – A usable app is one that doesn’t make you want to smash your smartphone into bite-sized pieces after using it. You can be both useful, and not usable or usable and not useful, but ultimately, an app that is both useful and usable will be a hit.
