eZymurgy on Kindle Fire HD
« on: June 18, 2013, 09:52:07 AM »
Anybody else have issues signing in and reading eZymurgy on a Kindle Fire HD? I can't even sign in, just sits there and does nothing. Tried the change password etc. Just wondering if it's a glitch or something I'm doing.

It's a Flash applet, so it won't work on any mobile device.

Supposedly an Android app is coming out real soon now.  Maybe that'll be going onto the Amazon app store as well as Google Play?

I log in and read it from my iPad all the time. Just looking at the new issue yesterday.

I was not sure if it was Flash or not.
If it is a Flash Applet, it does not surprise me that it doesn't work on the Kindle Fire HD. I've read that the new Kindle's are not supporting Flash. I think Apple still does so that's probably why that works.
Thanks for the info, looking forward to the Android App.

Apple are the folks who led the charge on there being no Flash on mobile devices.

I just gave it a shot on my iPhone and it did load it's got a totally different interface from what's being served up to my computer.  So it's got to be using a second version that's put together in HTML5 or something like that. If I disable Flash on my computer, though, instead of sending the version of the app that goes out to the iPhone, it looks like it tries (and fails) to serve up the Flash version.

Long story short, they've got two different versions, one for Flash and one for no Flash, but the system they're using to decide which one to use is broken.

No, wait, with flash disabled it gives me a link that says "Using a screen reader? Click here".  Doing so gets you the HTML5 version.

If you're at least getting that brushed metal gray background on the Kindle, try scrolling down to see if you can find it.  I saw it like halfway down the page, so it might be that it's just not visible at first.

I never get to the metal gray background. When I input user id and password it goes nowhere, blanks out the fields for id and password and nothing happens. I was hoping that the app would take care of this issue for me. I'd sure like to be able to read all the archived versions on my Kindle HD.

I contacted the AHA IT staff and asked them if they could look into this.

Turns out Gary pointed this thread out to them yesterday, so they're aware of the issue and looking into it.

There is still no app in the kindle store on amazon. However, I was able to get the ezymurgy app to work on my kindle by following these instructions exactly. It's a lengthy process, but worked for me and was worth it. All and all time spent was about only about 20 minutes. This seems to work with other apps not available in the amazon store that are available on google play. For the record, I logged into drop box through the web browser on my kindle, not a drop box app.

Thanks for the tip, Jason!  About time you showed up around these parts.  Unfortunately, I have been unable to get into eZymurgy so far, I get error messages every time.  I posted a separate topic in hopes for timely resolution...
