I found another reason to love my Fire! I downloaded the new Stampin Up catalog to my Fire and it saves in PDF form and it is easy to flip through. This is a picture of how the page looks like on the Fire.
Although I still want a hard copy of the catalog this will work for me for other reasons. Last night I was going through the catalog and tapped on the screen and a menu thing came up and I noticed I could highlight text. For years I have went through my catalog when I would get it and highlight what I had and then underline things I thought I might want to order. This always made it easier when I was going to a Stampin Up party or going to make an order.
You can also change the color if you like. If you own a Fire and it is like mine you know it can be a little testy at times so you can understand when I say I had to tap "A LOT" in order to get through the catalog and get the items highlighted. I would say this process is not for those with very little patience *which okie is guilty of herself but her determination outweighs her lack of patience most of the time* and it will take some time to get use to where to tap and even then it will sometimes freeze up and you might have to close the application. The good thing is that once you have something highlighted it stays that way even after you close it.
I did find it was easier to make the page bigger in order to highlight. If you highlight the wrong thing you can hold your finger down on the area that is wrong and another little menu will pop up and you can select "clear" and it will remove it.
I think this will come in handy for when I go to Stampin Up parties and I can take my Fire instead of carrying the catalog. Since the catalog is saved to my Fire I don't need the wireless connection to access it.
