I can't. They won't let me buy it. It seems that Google requires you to own an Android device capable of running the app you want to buy. :(

The discount is over, the each day a new 10 apps are available and we're now on day 2.

Also Deozaan - the Market and it's compatibility checks are really annoying. If you do any tinkering with your phone then it'll often get confused and say an app is incompatible when in fact it runs perfectly. That said there are modded versions of the market app out there that disable the compatibility check, and the geographic checks so an app is always available.

Do you have any pointers - particularly ones that might work with the Amazon Fire?  My wife has found an app or two that she'd like but aren't offered in the Amazon App store for the Fire.

The place to go to find out is xda-developers, I see they even have a forum section dedicated to the Kindle Fire. If it's possible, then the guys there will know about it. In facts it's likely they'll be the ones who made it possible.

But note, while playing with such mods is generally very safe, it usually voids any warranty.
