Why does the "Buy Now" and "See Details for this Book" links not work when viewing a sample book in Kindle for iPad? With all of the updates that have been done, you would think this would have been fixed by now.

You can't buy from the Amazon store from within the iPad app. Apple wanted a 30% cut of the sale, so that ability was removed. You have to buy from the browser.

It's an apple feature, you have to go to the browser.

Deleted because Meya already mentioned the 30% cut that Apple wanted.

You apparently haven't updated your apps in quite a while.

I update the app every time it is available.

There is nothing to fix. Its working as it is supposed to work. App makers like Amazon are not allowed to have any feature in their app that links to an external site to sell digital goods to be used in the app. So Amazon had to make an update months ago that disables the links that are in the samples.

But, sadly, you insist on doing business with Apple so enjoy.
