Kindle 4 Apps

Not all Kindle applications work on the newest Kindle 4 model without a keyboard ($79 with special offers and $99 without). If you are purchased apps in the past for your Kindle 2 or Kindle 3, these apps will show up in the “Archived Items”. But when you will try to download them you will get a message telling you “Item Not Available – This item is not available for this device type”.

Amazon has foreseen that trying to use apps designed for physical keyboard on a device that doesn’t have it will not be enjoyable. So they hand-picked 20 applications that don’t rely on keyboard and would do just fine with 5-way controller.

If you just purchased Kindle 4 or planning to and are wondering which apps will run on your device, here’s a list of 20 (out of 145) Kindle app titles that do well without a keyboard:

I’ll keep updating this list periodically and will update app reviews themselves with list of Kindle platforms that app supports.

Ultimate Music Quiz

The Ultimate Music Quiz was a lot harder for me than it might be for someone who is more in tune with pop culture and famous music icons.  I love music, but I tend to pay a lot more attention to the songs and how they’re played, than the singers behind them.  I guessed my way through a lot of the questions, but at the same time, I learned a lot about famous singers and bands from the past 40 years.  It would be cool if HandyX made a Classical Music edition.  I know a little more about classical composers than modern ones.

There are a good mix of questions from new and old music: the Bee Gees, Elvis, Beach Boys, The Beatles,, Aaliyah, Beyonce, and much much more.

As with the rest of the Ultimate Quiz topics by HandyX, there are 1000 questions.  they range in difficulty, but all of the questions are mixed up.  You may get an easy question in the middle of a string of hard ones.  How difficult the questions really are, depends a lot on your music knowledge.

The interface and overall design of Ultimate Music Quiz are very simple and easy to use.  Just use the Kindle’s 5-way toggle button to select and answer each question.  the questions are aall written in a large, easy to read font.

There are two trivia types to choose form.  Continuous and Round by Round.  There are also separate versions of each of these if you want to play with a timer.

Ultimate Music Quiz is best for ages 13 and up.  Both teenagers and adults can enjoy these questions because it covers such a broad span of history in the music world.

There is one review so far.  I’d like to see more people post reviews so there can be a better idea of what people from varying degrees of musical knowledge think of Ultimate Music Quiz.

.If you aren’t that into music, but enjoy nature, movies, or even poetry, there are other similar trivia games: Ultimate Movie Quiz, Ultimate Nature Quiz, and Ultimate Shakespeare Quiz by HandyX that are worth checking out.


“I bought this book for my Kindle and love it. I take it along anytime we are going on a road trip. My husband is a music lover and he likes me to read the questions to him while he is driving. It helps keep us both alert on the road.”

Ultimate Math Skills Quiz is now compatible with the latest generation keyboardless Kindle.
