    Default Google Nexus 7 Tablet (2012) Amazon Store app won't install after 4.4 OTA update?

    Doesn't anyone else have this problem? I did a search and it looks like someone else had a problem similar to this on the Nexus 2013. There was no real solution.

    I enabled Unknown sources in the security settings and I've tried obtaining the app from email and the Amazon website itself. When I start the app it gives the the option to "Install" or "Cancel", I can't push or select the install button, but I can push the cancel button. What gives? I need my SwiftKey keyboard

    Welcome to Android Central! I always go to amazon.com/amazonappstoreapp to download the apk.

    Do you have any screen dimming apps installed, like ? I've seen these kinds of apps cause Install buttons to oddly become inaccessible. If you turn off the dimming, it comes back on.

    In the play store there are more than 1 Amazon app, try the one that says Amazon for tablets. It installed & works fine on my N7(2012).

    We need the OP to clarify something--are you looking for the Amazon Appstore​ app, or the Amazon app (which is just the shopping app)?

    I'm getting the same problem on my 2013 Nexus 7. When I try to install third-party apps, I can't press the install button, only the cancel button.

    As mentioned above--you don't have any kind of screen dimming apps installed, do you?

    This works! I have an app called twilight and when I paused it, I was able to press install. Thanks!

    Hi, thanks for your input, but if you'll notice from the original and subsequent posts, that wasn't the actual issue.
