Amazon Updates Kindle for Android App


Kindle for Android

Amazon has updated their Kindle for Android app to support Kindle newspaper and magazine delivery, making it the first major ebook app to offer periodicals on the Android platform.

Android users can now choose to buy a single issue or monthly subscription of 100+ Kindle newspapers and magazines available in the Kindle Store.

Other updates include the ability to shop the Kindle store within the app instead of it opening the web browser like before, share reading progress via social networks using Google’s built-in Share functionality, and zoom in closer on images and other graphics.

If you already have the Kindle app and have market access it will update automatically. Otherwise you can download the Kindle APK file from my Android Reading Apps pack.

    Does anyone know how to get the updated Kindle app to stop “snowing”? I think it is a live wallpaper. My tablet the Kindle app and live wallpaper did not get along well when I had it on my phone page. They like each other a lot less when they are in the same app! It’s also eating battery and system resources on my tablet, (Next3).

    At least one other person has said the same thing I have about it on the Amazon CS boards. I’ve already tried to call Amazon. The agent told me to Google “Android.com” to figure out what the problem was. No shocker, there was nothing there. Does anyone know anything that can help me? My Kindle app is completely unusable with this foolish wallpaper!

    Nevermind, I solved the problem! At the ArchosFans.com forum members reported the “snow” will stop on 12/26.

    In addition Amazon released a new file for the Kindle which fixes the problem. It’s name is: “pak.apk” The version is: 2.0.2.102300153. I got the new file by updating the Kindle app on my Android smart phone and backing the new file up to the SD card in my phone. Transferred the file to the Next3. Uninstalled the old app, installed the new, and it worked!

    If anyone reading this doesn’t want to go thru all those steps, the app should stop “snowing” on Sunday. It seems the Kindle for Android app was the only one which was tinkered with this way.

  5. I had snow problems too. I just reverted back to the old version on my Cruz Reader. It updated again on my Android phone but I have no idea how to back it up to put it on my reader. Can someone either tell me how to do it or send me the 2.0.2 file?

    Thank you!
