Carousel annoyance
« on: December 13, 2012, 10:08:23 am »
My wife and I have a pair of Fire HD7s which we really enjoy. One annoyance for us, though, is the fact that if either of us buys a book or mails a personal document, even if it is being sent to another device (i.e., KK), it shows up in the carousel of both Fires. As we have very diverse (and divergent) tastes, this is somewhat annoying.

Anybody know of a way to turn off this behavior?

    Unfortunately, as long as devices are on the same account, you can't stop it from being sent.

    You can, however, remove items on the Carousel by pressing and holding and then selecting "Remove from Carousel" on the pop up that appears.

    And. . . .I'd suggest that you provide feedback about this behavior to Amazon. . .they won't fix it if they don't know that people don't like it.  There's a feedback link in the 'more' menu.
