Kindle Fire Gets Speed-Improving Update

Amazon has updated the software on the Kindle Fire to verson 6.2.1. The update hopes to fix problems with the touchscreen, improve performance and brings a few new features.

New features include the ability to add a password to lock Wi-Fi access and the option to choose which apps display on the home carousel. Amazon hasn’t actually acknowledged performance problems with the Kindle Fire, which was officially announced in September.

The Kindle’s update should work as an over-the-air update but if you haven’t received it yet, you can download it here.. A few Kindle Fire users say their devices hung while updating and the touchscreen didn’t work while they tried to cancel. So you might want to wait a little bit before you update.

Any Kindle Fire users out there? Please leave us a comment if you’ve tried the update.
