Kindle Active Content

Back when I had a Kindle Keyboard, I bought a bunch of Kindle Active Content., which included things like Scrabble, Monopoly and Hangman.

I seem to recall this Active Content working on my Paperwhite 1, but the third generation Paperwhite I just got does not work with any of the Active Content I bought previously. Is Active Content for eInk devices dead?

They've dropped support for active content with the latest generation of eInk devices (7th Generation is Amazon speak for the current models, Voyage, Paperwhite 3 and Basic Kindle [Touch 2?])...

Quote:
Kindle active content is available on Kindle DX (2nd Generation), Kindle (2nd Generation), Kindle Keyboard (3rd Generation), Kindle Touch (4th Generation), Kindle (5th Generation), Kindle Paperwhite (5th Generation), and Kindle Paperwhite (6th Generation).

Kindle active content is not compatible with Fire tablets, Kindle Voyage (7th Generation), Kindle Paperwhite (7th Generation), Kindle (7th Generation), and Kindle reading apps.

I'm kind of confused why they are removed

Well, we don't know.

Although I would guess Amazon didn't think they were being used by people.

Active content was never sold outside the US. I think it just never caught on: people use Smartphones and tablets to runs apps.
