Phone [Q] Latest Kindle App Constant Force Close

Does anyone else experience this issue on the latest version of the Kindle Android App?

I've tried everything I can, clearing cache, clearing data, uninstalling, rolling back to previous version, fixed permission - nothing seemed to work.

I thought that it's a bad update, but I try the same version on my tablet and it runs fine. So I wonder if it's specific to the note 3....

I'm on stock ROM but rooted. Couple days ago it won't even let me get to the amazon home screen. Today, I"m able to get in, but as soon as I load a book it'll FC.

I haven't had this issue. But as an alternative, Samsung just released it's Kindle for Samsung app. You can get it in the Samsung Apps. It's an official Kindle app, just from Samsung. Plus you get to choose a free book every month. Check out this thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2721555

I use it now because I like the design/style better than the original Kindle app.

Hope that helps.

LOL! What's your problem? Do I have to say I'm experiencing it too? Even I don't experience that force close thing? And what about my post count increasing? Is there a limit? Be surprised if my post count were decreasing

Thank you, this one works. I still don't know why the version from amazon/google play craps out on me like that.

Actually, if you read the original post, the OP asks specifically if anyone else is having issues with the Kindle app. That's why I started my post above with "I haven't had this issue."

It's really not necessary to attack people for answering someone's question, especially when your post added even less with respect to helping the OP.

I think this is the beginning of Kanly - the art of vendetta.

Sorry, i'm still reading the Dune series. Plus I watched the 4 hour extended edition last night until 4am.
