This is a running list with applications I sideload to my Fire and the results. I will add to the list as needed. If you have any requests, let me know. Cordless app transfer instructions are below the list.

the Fire. I use this to create my custom shortcuts to web pages on the 'desktop'

guess. App would not open at all

issues viewing. Slight pixelation

I installed Astro on my app source devices which are my G2 phone or Galaxy Tab
and Easy Installer on my Kindle Fire. Then installed Dropbox all of them. The Dropbox Fire installation was done transferring the file using a USB.
Once the two apps are in place, you no longer need the USB. When you backup an app with Astro, go to the Astro Home Page and select File Manager. You will find your APK files in the backup>apps directory. A long press on the app will bring up a menu. When you select Send from the menu, Dropbox is one of your options. When the upload is complete, select it from the Dropbox app on the Fire. It will prompt you to install when the download is complete.
