Amazon’s Fire range of tablets are dirt cheap, but that affordability comes at the cost of a heavily skinned UI that lacks Google Play ecosystem and has a tonne of other limitations. Senior XDA community member, Datastream33, has developed a new app called Amazon Fire Toolbox that lets you run Google apps and do a lot more on Amazon’s cheap tablets.

As per an XDA-Developers report, it is compatible with all Amazon Fire tablets dating back to the Fire HD 6 that was launched in 2014. However, you need to enable USB debugging firsthand, because the app uses Android Debug Bridge (ADB) to execute commands on the tablet. (Read Amazon’s guide on working with ADB on Fire tablets here).
