How to Organize Your Home screen on the Fire HD 8 Tablet

The Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet comes with a couple of apps pre-installed on it. Apps like Prime video, Silk browser, Washington Post, and Amazon Music all come pre-installed. And because Amazon devices don’t support Android apps, users are then forced to install the Google Play Store and then install the Android app they use daily. What then happens is that you find yourself dealing with a ton of Android and Amazon apps on your tablet home screen. This can get really overwhelming, especially when you have to constantly search for the apps you use more often.
