Kindle app 4.1 for iPad......warning
« on: January 14, 2014, 07:57 PM »
Warning....please read all the reviews before updating your Kindle app to version 4.1.  I wish I had!  This app went from good to hopeless in one little update.  It started crashing the minute I updated it.  :D
A friend called to warn me but she was too late.  The same thing happened to hers.  I deleted it and started again.  It runs very slow and doesn't load many books onto the device before it crashes.  I like to have my books on my iPad and not just in the cloud because I am not always near a wifi connection.  Things were perfect before the update but they bragged about all the improvements to the app.  Needless to say I am not a happy camper and hope they fix it soon. 
Please excuse any spelling errors.   I have dyslexic fingers!

Once they update the apps, you can no longer get the older version from the app store.  I hadn't done a backup  through itunes on the computer.  My computer monitor is dead, so until I replace it, I have been using my iPad.  You have given me an idea though.....I do have an older iPad with the older version.  Time to go monitor shopping!

On Android, sometimes, you can go to settings/apps, and "remove update"...

You know you can download older version from Other resources.
Where they put updates for those who can't use data always to update the apps

Nin, I have searched and can't find these sources you speak of.  Would my iPad have to be jailbroken for this?

i don't think so.
I have used android and i can download app from third party website which offer the application, which i can copy and install.
as not an ardent fan of apple i have no idea if you need to jail break to install third party app.

To be honest you shouldn't need to jail brake your iPad to install any app that is freely available on the Apple App Store.  The only reason anybody would want to jail break their iPad (iPod or iPhone) would be so that they can install 3rd party apps that aren't available on the Apple App Store or pirated apps.  I would contact Amazon and see if it's possible to install the previous version of the Kindle app on your iPad.

They fixed it!  Be sure you get the Jan 20 version 4.1.1

I was able to load all my books without it crashing.  It is more sensitive to the touch and loads faster!
