Amazon removes Kindle app from Windows 10 store

Amazon removes Kindle app from Windows 10 store

A translation of the Tweakers.net article:

Quote:
Amazon has announced that it will be removing the Kindle app from the Windows 10 store on October 27. The company refers users to the desktop version of the application. Nothing was said about the app for Windows 10.

Amazon simplifies it's ebook applications, and will focus its attention on the desktop application. Amazon reports that the app will keep functioning after the removal from the store, but it can't be reinstalled.

The company has put a help page online, to help users migrate to the desktop application. People who use Windows RT are referred to the Amazon Cloud Reader, which is a webapplication that offers the same functionality as the store app.

There is no information with regard to a universal app for Windows 10 as well as Windows 10 Mobile, which is the way Microsoft wants companies to develop new applications. Amazon does have a mobile app. That one looks like to still be available after October 27.

The choice to cancel support for the application is striking. Microsoft has been encouraging developers to use the store, for example by giving them the possibility to easily convert 'old' applications to a version that can be put into the Windows store.
