Hi - I am thinking about buying an Amazon fire tablet. There are several versions. 10 inch and 8 inch - both HD.

I know that with the old version of BBO - there were severe limitations using a fire tablet and you could not use the web version. It seems that several tournaments want you to be using the web version - and I am wondering if you are able to do that with the new version of BBO.

What are the limitations that might cause issues with using the Amazon fire with either the old or the new version of BBO.

Thanks in advance.

I have a Amazon Fire 8 HD tablet.
Using the html version same as on a computer
the only difference is you only have one window at a time due to screen size.
so if say you want to look at your history you click on history you click on the history tab and just history will display.
Sarcasm is a state of mind

I use both the mobile app and the HTML version on my Fire HD 8 tablet as well. I use the HTML version in Safari, but I've tried it in Amazon's Silk browser and it works there as well.
