  1. Thanks, Nathan!

    I just downloaded and installed it. What a welcome change from the games the Amazon Appstore seems to have every day. THIS is software I will actually use!

    • Yeah I was surprised to see it as the free app today, something useful for a change. And it’s probably the most expensive app they’ve given away.

  2. Nathan, I really got excited about getting this app as I’m waiting for my new tablet (purchased with reviews written in this blog – thanks much), but Amazon said that I can’t get this app unless I have the device in hand with the Amazon app store already installed on it. I can’t just buy the app and store it for use later when my tablet comes. Any workarounds on this? Customer service agent says no and all attempts are going nowhere. (my current ebook reader runs on Android 1.5 and will not install the marketplace for use later on my new one) Thanks much. This is a great app and I’d really like to get it if anyone knows how to go about it.

    • That sucks. I thought you could get the apps and have them tied to your account like Kindle books before getting the device to put them on. I suppose if you setup an Android emulator on your computer that might work. I setup an emulator a long time ago to get Android Market apps and it was pretty easy&amp—I don’t know if that will work but it might be worth trying. Running a Google search should turn up a tutorial.

  3. That’s odd, they let me buy it. I did end up installing it on my Android cell phone – but that has never been linked to my Amazon account. My only devices with a Kindle app is my Windows PC and an iPad.

  4. With NO time to spare…I used the simulator workaround. It took a bit of time, and some trial and error, but it will do the trick until I a new tablet arrives. I advise others to use the remaining hours to obtain this app. It will be worth it.

  5. Bummer! I did not get this email until Thu 10/27/2011 5:07 AM EDST. Wish I had known about this yesterday.

  6. Same for me I was trying to get it and it was showing the $14.99 price. Is there any way to get your posts sooner? It doesn’t help if we get them a day later for something on sale yesterday? I love your blogs!!

  7. I found out about this yesterday and downloaded the free app, but later found out that you can only run it when connected to the Amazon appstore. Today, I tried to run it and it won’t respond. I get an error that says to redownload it. This is impossible because the Amazon appstore doesn’t work properly on my device and even the Amazon site on my laptop. I can’t even send an error/bug report. Very, very disappointed in the Amazon appstore. Maybe, they will work out the bugs before the end of the year, but for now, for me it is useless.
