Anyone tried "Kindle Bug App Browser" ?

This looks interesting Kindle Bug App Browser. It sounds like it's a new web-browser for the Kindle, but it actually seems to be just access to a website, at least I think that's what you're buying.

Quote:
Use the Kindle Bug App Browser website as your Kindle browser and enjoy many new features previously unavailable to the Kindle’s built-in internet browser. One of the many great features of the Kindle Bug App Browser is the ability to browse the internet on multiple tabs/windows at the same time. The Kindle Bug App Browser includes links to free Kindle book websites, free interactive games similar to Tetris, Connect 4, Mastermind, and Scrabble, many other free interactive games (Sudoku, Chess, Arrange, Lights Out, etc.). In addition, the Kindle Bug App Browser includes links to Kindle shortcuts, unit converters (length, weight, temperature, etc.), bookmarks, and a built in scientific calculator. Even more exciting, the Kindle Bug App Browser allows you to view multiple web pages and play multiple games offline without an internet connection. No downloading of files is necessary to access games and web pages offline with the Kindle Bug App Browser. Simply go to the web page or game once online in one of the tabs/windows and it will be available for viewing/use offline until you change the tab/window to something else. There are 25 different tabs/windows.
Edit: fixed the link

Yeah, it does simply seem like a website.

Amazon really needs to start cracking down on this sort of stuff, they are little more than scams...

Even if it is just a website, if it gets the job done what is the problem?

Websites come and go, especially small sites. If in 3-months the people selling the site realize they aren't taking in enough revenue to cover their expenses then *poof* it's gone, and there's not much you can do about it. Even knowing that I'm still interested, that's why I posted asking if anyone had used it. It's only $2, but I don't want to completely waste even that much.

You could well be right, but it is puzzling that this is something that Amazon is actually selling on their site for their "flagship" eReader. You would hope that Amazon would check the legitimacy of a website or manufacturer, or...before actually promoting it on their site.

It is just an ebook with web links in it, afaict. Amazon doesn't curate ebooks, unless there's some sort of 'controversy'. And they don't restrict where the web browser goes.

I tried this app hoping that it would allow me to surf sites where links open in a new window. This app did not enable me to do that.

Amazon has significantly limited access to the number of developers for creating apps/games in their azw2 file format. As a result, if anyone wants to create new apps but Amazon does not grant developer status, the person has use a website instead for the game/app (especially since Kindle 3 cannot read html files natively). If you have a suggestion for developers to create new interactive apps/games (since Amazon limited the number of developers), then I am sure there are a lot of people that would like to know.
