This doesn't. Work for. Me. Amazon says the browser isn't supported. Any more suggestions? Already tried converting an apology file to bar...
Study the sideloading process again. At NO point do you interact with Amazon using any browser.

I will do that, though outpouring a good source would be helpful. I tried using goodereader and they failed to provide a *.bar file as promised. So who knows if I got. A good. Conversion of the kindle.apk file. Otherwise, the installation succeeded though the app wouldn't. Run.

it is there
Another way that works with WiFi on Windows, Intel Macs and Linux.
You install Chrome browser on your computer that you are using to download and sideload apps to Playbook.
Then you add the extension 'Playbook App Manager' from Chrome's Spanner, then Settings, Extensions, then Get More Extensions (or Gallery if you have none yet)
Download the required .bar file from Goodereader.com (Playbook Apps)
Have both computer and Playbook connected by wifi to your router. (No usb cable!)
Ensure File Sharing and wifi sharing are enabled in Playbook (Settings, Storage and Sharing)
Put the Playbook in Development Mode (Settings, Security, Development Mode) and add a password, preferably your normal Playbook password.
Look at the IP address of the playbook by tapping the Development Mode icon when you top corner swipe.
It will begin 192.168. when using wifi.
Go to Chrome in the computer and go Spanner, Settings, Extensions, then select “Options” in Playbook App Manager.
Type the IP address you noted in Device Hostnames/IP
Click on the IP address where it says ‘manage your devices’.
Ignore the big red warning and click “Proceed Anyway”
Enter your password you added in dev mode and click Log In.
A list of all playbook apps will appear.
Click on the Install button
Go to the folder where you downloded the .bar file from goodereader.com and click on open.
The app will be sideloaded.
