Amazon made some improvements! A simplified three-page layout.
« on: November 16, 2020, 07:32:17 pm »
Unless I am the only one in this entire world with a kindle Fire HD 10 OS 7.3.1.6 (updated October 9, 2020), beginning to think so, I have not found any information other than the tablets pop-up about this change. I loved the 9-page layout. Now we are down to three-page layout. My wife and I have the same Kindle Fire HD with the same OS version, hers still has the old-style layout. Oddly enough mine didn't change to the new one until about 3 weeks after the update. The Page layout didn't change until first week of November.

The library layout is nothing special compared to the older layout. As you can see in my image below it just shows, Kindle for example, books I already have and tapping on Kindle takes you to the Kindle app or tapping the book opens the book. Why do I need the kindle app icon sucking up screen real-estate for? If I wanted to see that view, I would just tap on the Kindle app to see my book. This makes me want to root the device.

    Still there after a recent update from 7.3.1.6 to 7.3.1.7.  What's more amazing is both our devices were upgraded and mine is still on the new 3 Page layout while the other is on the older 9 page Layout.

    I don't have a Kindle Fire so I have nothing to compare it with - but it occurs to me that the update may have changed something in your settings and that you might have the choice regarding the 3 or 9 page layout with 3 simply being the default.

    Alternatively, just lately with upgrades to e-ink Kindles, not all the new features have arrived at the same time but have been rolled out over time with different devices which apparently have the same update showing different features.

    If you want a definitive answer, you may need to speak to Amazon support.

    My Fire 8 plus is running 7.3.1.6  Go to amazon's site and look up updates and all you see is 7.3.1.5,  now I wonder what 7.3.1.7 might be?

    I have a Fire HD 10 (OS 7.3.1.6) and still have the 9 page layout.
