Software is like coffee: well made, it can make the most tedious tasks bearable; made badly it can ruin your whole day.

comment How to get updates for apps which use Google Play on my Kindle Fire?
Thanks for your thoughts, but the problem isn't that multiple package managers are competing but rather that Amazon devices are locked out (by Google) from Google Play. I receive notifications but can't download the 'update' and the Amazon store claims no updates are available.

Most of the update notifications have been in the form of little 'update available' arrows on the app's icon. The only one I recall to have caused a status-bar notification was an Android build of Firefox ("Aurora") which directed me to Mozilla's download page.

@eldarerathis This seems to be every app, though; not just one or two.
