iPhone eating Amazon Kindle Books!!
Announced yesterday (27 Feb) that the latest Kindle App for the iOS has a serious bug in it !! Apparently it is deleting the user’s eBooks from their virtual library. AHhhhhhh !! In a bulletin yesterday they asked iPhone / iPad / iPod users NOT to upgrade the App until a bug fox was in place.
A notice in the ‘What’s new’ section of the Kindle app reads: “Note: There is a known issue with this update. If you are an existing Kindle for iOS user, we recommend you do not install this update at this time.”
Users caught out by this were forced to re-download their books from the “cloud” (if they had them backed up).
Makes you wonder about software – there are so many stories of things going wrong, hacking, spammimg and phishing – maybe the
humble, no MIGHTY paperback is still worthwhile?
Side note: If the above reads like an alien script to you, don’t worry, just keep read my new thriller books in Paperback available from Amazon as REAL PRINT BOOKS to put on a shelf or loan to a friend. Happy reeading!
