The 10 best Kindle Fire HDX apps and games to download first

Feed your hungry Kindle Fire HDX 7 or 8.9 this platter of apps to keep it playful and productive

The Kindle Fire HDX 7 impressed us enough to earn a full five stars in Stuff's Kindle Fire HDX 7 review.

It's powerful innards and scrumptious screen deserve to be treated, so we've rounded up some of the best apps to take advantage of all that it offers.

Riptide GP2 (£1.99)

Gorgeous graphics, a career mode with over 50 events, new upgradeable jet skis and a revamped system with over 25 stunts to master make this wet and wild water racer better than the original in every way. A great way to kill a little time before the dentist's drill gets to work.

Preschool All-in-One Learning (£1.49)

The Kindle Fire HDX has Amazon's new parental control FreeTime feature built directly into it, making it ideal for keeping little troublemakers occupied. This app offers 220-word flash cards in ten learning categories to keep little minds ticking away after playing (family friendly) games on the HDX. 

OfficeSuite Professional 7 (£3.00)

The Kindle Fire HDX has VPN support baked directly into it, making it a genuine contender for a place in your workplace tech arsenal. OfficeSuite will inject it with a massive productivity boost, letting you create, edit and view Word and Excel files as well as browse PowerPoints and PDF documents.

Spotify (£free)

One of our staple go-to Android apps is a must for any Spotify subscriber, and now thanks to Spotify's recent update which offers ad-supported streaming on tablets and smartphones, it's a no brainer for any music fan looking to broaden their musical horizons.

Netflix (£free)

If you're a Netflix subscriber then we don't even need to tell you why you'd want the official app, but then this text would be utterly pointless, wouldn't it? Seriously, what would be the point in even reading it? Just go and download it already.

More after the break...

FIFA 14 (£free)

While you have to pay a little more to unlock Manager, Tournament and Kick Off modes, the free version of FIFA 14 lets you play along with real-world fixtures and lets you create your own ultimate fantasy team. And no, you can't clone Messi 12 times. We tried.

Skype (£free)

Skype is the world's favourite videophone app (yes, we're bringing that word back), letting you use the Kindle Fire HDX's 720p front-facing camera to chat away with your whole face, beaming it across the interwebs to you family and friends' screens. Lucky them.

LinkedIn Pulse (£free)

Formally Pulse News, this app scours every corner of the internet from blogs to websites and everything in between to bring you tailored news from tech, fashion, finance… well, anything you fancy really. Your sources are synced across all devices including the web app, and you can read stories when you're offline too. 

Angry Birds Star Wars II (£free)

Angrier and more Star Wars-ier than ever, those crazy space-soaring birds are back, with enough Star Wars themes and throwbacks to please both old and new fans alike. Pork side and bird side levels, hidden maps and new characters await your Jedi-trained fingers.

Wunderlist (£free)

Being organised is, believe it or not, rather fun. Less stress, less panic, less 'my job interview was today!?' moments. This free app lets you keep on top of group projects, appointments and lists, syncing across all your devices and letting you share all the important stuff with your family/work team/secret spy network.
