Not the answer your looking for but you should consider rooting the kindle.
It's gotten as easy as one click these days and it really opens up a ton of options for you...

If it was mine and not the wife's I would .. but she likes the simple Amazon view of things.  She does control or lake place with her phone and I thought I would get it on the Kindle for her.

I'd like to, but there's a $99 annual fee to be in Amazon's developer program.  Sure they'll waive the first year if I sign up now, but paying that much annually for an app that I distribute for free is a bit steep.  I don't get that many donations! :P

Have you tried sideloading?

Or can you install APKs from a URL on the Kindle?  You can download it from SlideMe:

http://slideme.org/application/home-buddy

Here's the direct link to the APK:

Good luck!
