    I have google play installed on my tAblet. When I try to download certain apps it says I need google play services on my tAblet. I've downloaded google play services but still can't download app. When playing other apps(games) I get a pop up constantly saying google play services has stopped. How do I fix this.

    The fact the Google apps are missing from an Amazon tablet is deliberate. Amazon wants to tie you into their ecosystem, and Google is a competitor. That is why the price of Kindle tablets is so attractive: Amazon takes a loss on every one they sell. Simply installing Google Play Services isn't enough. In order for Google Play Services to function correctly it needs to be in the system partition, which for the Kindle Fire means having to root the tablet and install a Google Apps package from opengapps.org. If you aren't comfortable with that prospect, then unfortunately you won't be able to use those apps.
