I sent an email to Amazon re: Games Apps

I know a lot of you are happy with the amount and variety of Games apps that have some out for the Kindle (my count is 13).

I am tired of seeing nothing BUT game apps. I want to see something, ANYTHING, other than game apps. There had to be some non-game app submissions. Where are they?

Do we have any MR members who were able to get the KDK and if so, what kinds of apps are you working on (if you can share ).

Did any of our talented hackers submit the fonts & screensaver hacks via KDK?

You'd think the developers at Amazon would welcome apps that have already been tested and proven to work!

I'd prefer non-game apps such as a decent notepad for a start but then I'm in the UK so actually I'd welcome ANY apps

Well, what are the restrictions? It seems to me that it might not be possible for most non-game apps if they didn't have the ability to read and write files from the Kindle itself.

I mean, they probably let you save a file like high scores and such. But they probably don't want apps that mess around with the other files. A bug and it could screw things up, which means money Amazon has to spend on customer support.

Also, there is no way to access files outside of a special per-app directory. That means all apps that do something interesting with your content are out.

The count appears to be zero, unless you happen to be in the US.
