Today's Fire Free App of the Day; Lab PRO

Today's Free App of the Day is Lab PRO - professional photo editor with lots of beautiful effects, frames and filters!
Originally $2.99

This is a feature-packed photo manipulation app that was a replacement free app of the day on June 27, 2014. It has a lot of things you can do with a photo--filters, borders, backgrounds, artistic effects....tons of special effects. My only problem with it is that you can't adjust the amount of effect that the filters and special effects have. Borders, etc, are understandably "on" or "off" but I would have liked to lessen the effect of "tilt," for example. You can save photos to your device (you get no indication a photo has been saved, which resulted in me saving the same photo 7 times before I realized that. You can save effects to your favorites. You can share photos to Facebook, Twitter and Email as well as Dropbox and other apps on your device. There are major concerns about permissions, however. Check out this review for more information:

438 of 546 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!

See You, by Dawn Lee McKenna
You will laugh loudly. You will cry ugly. But you will find it hard to forget Jack and Emma.

Sometimes the promise of something is so good that it's worth having, even when you know that you can't keep it.

See You is not a romance, but it is a love story; one filled with the rawness of risk and redemption and the dry humor that is the backbone of the South.

Emma has loved Jack since she was a little girl. But he was more than 20 years older and was raised by her grandmother, Miss Margret, so he's always been more of an uncle than anything else. He's never seen Emma as anything but a child.
