It's a hassell but at least they are keeping their app on iOS devices.  It would have really sucked if they had pulled it all together.

I updated anyway.  Aside from checking it out the day I first got the app, I've never intentionally clicked the Kindle Store button.  It's much easier to shop from the web on a computer (or in Mercury or Atomic on iPad).

Me, too!  I upgraded...I don't usually shop within the Kindle itself, for that matter...  I find books recommended here on KB, click on the link, and get them that way....

JRM,

I've merged your thread with this thread in the Apple device board as the emphasis in your article is on Apple's actions!

Same. I always shop on the computer anyway, so I'm just happy the app is staying on iOS as I read on my iPad 2 sometimes as I take it around with me more than I do my Kindle.

Yup, I just got an e-mail about this today.  I suppose Apple is trying to make sure that it is easier for iPad users to buy iBooks.  I actually like the iBook app better than Kindle, but I like *reading* on a Kindle device better than on an iPad.

I'm just not going to upgrade my Kindle software.

I always shop for Kindle books on my computer so this change doesn't bother me. :)

It's funny because I never thought the removal of a link like this would be a big deal, but I can see why!  I just use the computer to buy stuff.

Much like others who have already stated, I never once used the in-app purchase. I was always at Amazon on my main computer because I followed a link and just sent it to my Kindle or iPad with the 1-Click.

Nice try Apple. I still love my iPad and Kindle App and kudo's to Amazon for rolling with the punches and taking the high road.
