Hello,

I've bought a Galaxy Tab A to replace a now problematic Kindle Fire tablet. Obviously it's much better to not have an Amazon restricted tablet, but there is one bug bear with new table which the Samsung hasn't got: On the swipe down menu at the top of the screen, the Kindle had a screen brightness. On the Samsung, you've got to swipe down, choose settings, choose display, then you can adjust the screen brightness. Is there anyway I can get such a screen brightness setting immediately on that swipe down menu?

Bonus Q: what's the best/quickest way to copy stuff from Kindle to Samsung? Bluetooth is so slow, can't see a way to do it via WiFi.

One more, I really like the standard clock app that's on the Kindle, nicer than any I've tried on the Samsung. Anyway to get that clock app on the Samsung?

Thanks 🙂

I will be happy to assist you. For the screen brightness, pull down the notification bar, then pull it down again. You will see the brightness slider at the bottom. Tap the arrow next to the slider, and select the option to show the control on top of the notification bar.

 

You will not be able to move the Kindle clock app to your tablet. I will qualify that with saying that .apk installation files are everywhere, but I can't help with that.

 

The data transfer is trickier, depending on the content you want to move. For instance, Kindle, Amazon Photos, Amazon Music, etc. will transfer once you sign in to the Amazon account on the Galaxy Tab. If you have other content actually stored on the Kindle, you can use something like Android File Transfer to move data over a WiFi connection.
