I appreciate that you guys are pleased with your amazon devices, but when you surf the net you will see thousands of people who have bought the fire 8gb having the same frustrating issues so clearly there must be something a bit misleading else there wouldn't be so many people getting frustrated with the issue.
This is taken from the webpage
"Over 500,000 apps and games
Fire tablets feature instant access to thousands of the most popular free and bestselling games, social media, premium TV and movie providers, and so much more.
The best games
Enjoy bestselling games such as Candy Crush Jelly Saga, Hay Day, Subway Surfers, Game of War - Fire Age, Hungry Shark World and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. "
I can tell you now you cannot enjoy these "bestselling games" on the fire 8gb. I think under this section there should be a line indicating the limitations of the 8gb device. This is common practise in other products you buy and then if you choose not to read the small print then so be it...
@LMB: I think it's possibly true that you can not load all 500.000 apps at the same time and play them on the Fire - any Fire. Or any device on the planet if truth be told. You can, of course, download one and play one.
You obviously have an issue with either Amazon or the Fire tablet that I have to respect. However I am not sure how anyone can assist you. :(

I wonder why someone would follow their own alternative forum profile.
I wouldn't expect to be able to download them all, but a fair few would be nice!
Bob - I appreciate what you're saying about the ipad but I would also argue that the ipad doesn't seem to have this issue though...
Anyway, I appreciate your thoughts and opinions and we are obviously not going to agree - hence the forum chat. I have now contacted amazon with the information and issues and the person who responded actually agreed with my point about the 8gb limitations and how perhaps it needs to be clearer
The reason you don't hear about storage problems with iPad but that is because the smallest current model is 32Gb and Amazon even imply you need more if you have a lot of apps etc, although they are careful not to say how many apps the 32Gb model will run.
From Apples site.
"Storage is measured in gigabytes (GB) and the more gigabytes your iPad has, the more room you have to store digital content like apps, music, films, photos, books and more. If you mainly use streaming services like Apple Music or online storage options like iCloud, an iPad with smaller storage capacity may be right for you. But if you have a large collection of content, or frequently download films, TV programmes or music that you like to keep on your device, it’s a good idea to consider an iPad with a larger storage capacity. Over time you will add more content to your iPad, so you’ll want to think about how your storage needs may change."
