This morning, I noticed that I could not bring up my kindle app on my Droid phone without it crashing. I could maybe get one book open for a few seconds before getting a bum's rush back to the home screen.
I thought it was the phone. Reboot. Nope. WTH?
So, I check the app store - and there are scads of comments about how folks have had the app crashing after the last update.
Amazon: is there an estimated time of repair?

James, this is NOT Amazon. This is a customer forum so we have no idea when/if anything will happen.

To contact Amazon, click on help at the top or bottom of any Amazon page and then the contact us button on the next page. I recommend using the phone option for the quickest response.

I understand that. I wanted to post the subject for awareness here...as well as put in the comment for any forum mod.

This forum is not moderated or monitored by Amazon unless someone clicks on "report abuse"

Edit - FWIW - My K4Droid app is working perfectly on my phone. I was able to open and read a few pages.

Have you tried uninstalling it and then installing it again?

I just got the 4.5 update and the game I always play is crashing and says no longer compatible. Then says the app along with other well known apps need updates from develipers to be compadible with kindles update. Spent an hour trouble shooting with an Amozon tech to no avail. Its a mess

My experience with the Kindle for Android app on my Nooks has always been that one update works and the next one breaks it - rinse and repeat. I don't let it auto-update anymore so I at least have a chance of retaining a version that works, and it's one of the apps that I always read the most recent comments about before I update it.
