Yes, I found that after looking at notpad plus. And playing around with it, it is rather disappointing. I don't mean the features, but the e-ink experience of it. I think I reconsider my previous belief that the eink kindles can be useful for much. Makes it even less understandable why Amazon is not interested in letting more developers in.

there's some more free games on Amazon right now:
- Challenger RPG a Free Roleplaying Game
- Hamster Habitat (A Free Puzzle Game for Kindle)
- Math Blender (A Free Puzzle Game for Kindle)
- Shuffled Row (A Free Word Game for Kindle)
- Video Poker (A Free Game for Kindle)
- Every Word (A Free Game for Kindle)
- Blackjack (A Free Game for Kindle)
- Dots and Boxes (A Free Game for Kindle)
- Thread Words (A Free Word Game for Kindle)
- Number Slide (A Free Game for Kindle)

and many more paid games.
Most of the freebies are simple word games. Nothing fancy, no 3D graphics.

Too bad minesweeper does not work, but also I wished they had something like patience!

It's been stated at least three times in this thread that "active content" is only available in the US.

I'm aware of that, but people still keep going on about how easy it is to get hold of this content

What annoyed me was following a link here and thinking 'wow that game looks cool' but when I went to d/l it I was just re-directed to the UK site with no mention that it was not available there, and then spent 20 minutes trying to find it :-(

I live in Italy so no active content for me too: do you know if someone developed kindle active contents ebooks here in this forum? It seems not, quickly browsing and searching dev corner.
For example I was looking for a notepad. BTW, I have a jailbroken K5 device with fw 5.3.2 so I cannot use anything needing GUI launcher.

I don't know if it works for Italian customers, but when I go to amazon.com it asks me if I want to transfer my Kindle-Account to amazon.com. Once I do that I have complete access to the US Kindle store, including active content.

I've never been able to run Active Content on my PW all of which runs fine on my KK. I rely on my KFHD7-32 for all my apps. I use my PW only for reading eBooks.

Frankly, I can't even run my Osnova bibles on the PW and they run fine on my KK. I now rely on my AcroBible on the KFHD7-32.

One feature which runs on my PW in addition to the regular dictionary is my Bible Encyclopedia. I use it with my NIV and One Year Bible on the PW.

I suspect the Bible Encyclopedia may be incompatible with Active Content but will stick with the former since the latter is totally obsolete anyway compared to Apps for the KFHD7-32.

So I could transfer my Kindle account to amazon.com, buy whatever I want (including active content ebooks) and easily switch back to amazon.it without losing anything I bought on both stores?

No side effects?

Thanks

Mine Sweeper for Kindle

I've played it on my K3 in the past, and it's one of the free games.

Ah, ok. From the posting I thought it was meant that the poster couldn't find it for their Kindle (only for fire etc).

if you transfer your kindle account to another amazon you will only have half your books each time. juse change the address on your kindle on amazon with Manage Your Kindle and Country Settings. change your address to the right country and you keep all your books. I used it to download the free games
