Vault 3 for Android v. 1.19
December 11, 2011

Vault 3 for Android v. 1.19 is now available from the Android Market and Amazon Appstore for Android.

New in this version:

I recently bought a Kindle Fire so that I can test on the device that is destined to become the dominant Android tablet. Vault 3 for Android works great on the Kindle Fire, but I'm still waiting for Amazon to approve the app for use by Kindle Fire users. Presumably Amazon is more strict in their approval of applications for Kindle Fire. At least the approval process takes a much longer time.

Other than verify that Vault 3 for Android works on the device, I haven't done much with the tablet. For less than US $200 it is a great device for the money. The sound quality of the built-in speakers is surprisingly good. Music played through amplified speakers sounds very good. I've read reviews that complained of the device's responsiveness, and I've not noticed that. However, I do find that it is heavy considering its small size. I think I would enjoy reading books using the latest Kindle dedicated e-readers, considering their good battery life and light weight. But I'm not planning on reading full-length books on the Kindle Fire.

Postscript: On December 19 I learned that Vault 3 was approved by Amazon for the Kindle Fire. On December 21 my Kindle Fire did an operating system update. Recently I started to notice the lack of responsiveness, but this upgrade seems to have fixed that issue. Note: I had to power cycle the device to get the update to happen.
