I got the download last night and spent a few minutes playing with it, then went on to finish a book I was reading on the Kindle (with my phone).

The bug fixes are huge. It's actually usable now and they resolve the constant crashes (FC) that occurred when using the previous version.

All the features work now like (highlight, look up notes, thumbnails, view/zoom images, highlight. (The Dictionary still launches the word) but not big deal.

This puts Moon+ and Kindle as the best eReaders out there. And cover (MOBI/ePUB)

...and Nathan at the ebook-reader blog has just updated his Reading Apps for Android installation pack to include the updated Kindle app:

That was quick. And nicely done.

Yes, finally!

Also like the option to use the volume buttons for paging forward/back.

Sideloaded it on the Pandigital. Seems to work well. It added in all of the freebie Kindle books I had accumulated, and I was able to buy and load a Kindle book automatically.

Who needs to buy a Kindle now?

Query: is anybody getting a snowstorm on their Kindle for Android Homescreen today?
It was working fine until today and I don't know if my IQ environment is messing stuff up or if it is "proper" behavior for 2.x.
Cause I uninstalled and reinstalled and it's still doing it.
It may look cute but it slows the home page something fierce. Once I get it to respond and open a book it runs fine but I can't get to the K-store.

Right now I'm back to 1.x which still has good "weather".

I just checked and it's also snowing on my Kindle for Android home screen.... I'm using it on a Samsung phone and the app seems to be working Ok for me, though. No problems on the home page, no problem viewing my archived books (I have more archived than downloaded), and no problem accessing the Kindle store.

This is the first I've noticed the snow, so maybe it's a Christmas thing that will clear up in a few days.

I think the snow's a lovely festive touch!

No problem with any of the functionality here.

Found out it's "normal" behavior. It'll clear up sunday.
It was messing up enough tablet owners they issued a new snowfree release.
Should've added a Merry Christmas banner at least; some tablets have been locking up.

Help me please!

I am getting a new Pocketbook IQ ready for my daughter for Christmas tomorrow and the new Kindle 2.0 apk (with the snow storm) is unuseable (leave it to Kindle to not test) on the IQ. Does anyone have (or know where I can download) the old Kindle apk? I really need to have a working Kindle app for tomorrow morning. Thanks! Aaron

Here ya go:

The snow storm ends on sunday.
(Edit) An easy fix: set the tablet clock to the 27th until sunday.

Other good reader apps on the IQ are the Overdrive Media console (ePubs and library ebook access), FBreader 7.17, Aldiko, and coolreader 3 (dual column landscape).

Thank You!

Thanks a lot! There will be one very happy little girl tomorrow. I will update it to the latest (2.0) after Sunday (or are they going to release a new version on Sunday).
