Why doesn't Amazon show clearly on their download page what is the number of the current version?
Before I think to check here, my only opportunity was to DL it again and check if it was different!
Thank you MU! ;-)

Macupdates has really messed up the Kindle Reader info .. the Desktop shows a new version of 1.10.5 and this page agrees, but the app is marked for the AppStore where it only knows about 1.10.3 .. so upgrade is not possible

sorry the rating isn't better but the vendor has some resp. to ensure that all sources of their app work

This version, 1.10.5, is actually older than the one I have which is 1.10.3.
1.10.5 was Created: February 9, 2010 1:04 PM, while
1.10.3 was Created: Monday, June 18, 2012.

The version numbers are misleading.

So, I come here again to see what's up after you, Jimblue, replied and I see it still has 1.10.5 listed so out of curiosity, I go to the Developer's site at Amazon and download another from there to see what it is, and they give me 1.10.6 but the info for the date is about the same as this one, which is that earlier date again listed in Get Info. I kept both and will see what happens later. This one here still has that old date though it says 06 April 2013 here.
I just don't want to have to redo my library setup again.
This is WEIRD!!!!

hi gtrsteve,

yeah i went to amazon and did the same -- dled it from amazon. and like you, saw the older date in the get info box. please let me know if you ever figure out which is the most current version for real. right now it appears the one from MAS is the most current, but things aren't always as they appear.

The developer is forgetting to update the application package. Look inside the package contents and you'll see more recent dates - May 22, 2013, while the get info on the app shows Sept 30, 2010.
The version on MacUpdate is exactly the same as the amazon version at http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=kcp_mac_mkt_lnd?docId=1000464931.
This is fairly common for many apps. Go by the version number not the package date.

It seems this app only allows one to have up to 99 books in one's library, and then starts removing older ones to allow for newer books added. I've searched for any discussion of this, and have yet to find any.

Is this the case, and is there some way to save/archive books, so that they are popped out of the library stack?

For some reason MacUpdate doesn't have the most recent version. You can get a copy of the newer version available in the Mac App Store from http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=kcp_mac_mkt_lnd?docId=1000464931, without going through the App Store, which I've found to be unreliable about updates.

This works well enough with downloading and viewing e-book purchases from Amazon. It has a decent set of application tools for customizing the viewing experience as well.

Kindle on OSX has one serious deficiency and that is if I buy a book with recorded examples or media examples, these are not downloaded or available from with in this application – though I paid to have access to the ENTIRE book.

This is a serious issue for certain books that come with CDs and should be corrected.

I noticed that if I try to copy and paste from a book, inside of this application, Amazon also insists on sticking a cite at the end of every thing that is pasted and copied and can not be disabled!

Why does the app store still show version 1.8.1 as the latest?

Good for Kindle, allowing their books on what seems most any device: wish apple would do same. Had one complaint that graphics didn't seem to show up in mac edition, not sure if this version corrects that and if previous purchases have to be downloaded again if graphics now show. I haven't spent a lot of time reading on screen, been busy, but even if the execution is not quite right (not sure), the ability to send them almost effortlessly to various devices is what I give it the stars for.

just a note: is this thing with the portable devices a replay of the apple/microsoft "battles" of last century wherein microsoft got the "market advantage" by having their stuff run on many hardware (computer) manufacturers (to oversimplify, I suppose)?

Oops, if you bought this at app store, shouldn't install this, I did and wouldn't work, fortunately I'd CC (carbon copied) Sys disk and replaced this download with previous app, which again worked.

There's an amazing range of FREE books- thousands of them- available for Kindle on Amazon and elsewhere. Do a search.
Now's the time to get to read all of those classics you always meant to!
I love my Kindle to bits. I have around 500 books on it and these are backed up on my MacBook Pro so I can enjoy them on either. I also have a bunch on my phone too!
Who said reading was dead?

This is one of few apps which I have deliberately downloaded outside of the app store. I wanted to see if anyone can tell me if there are differences in the functionality of the non-app store version. I don't use this app much yet, as I have a large volume of rss feeds to keep up with. Can anyone tell me the differences in the two versions?
