How do we access the audible book that we bought in accompaniment to the digital book through kindle on a Mac? I can access on iPhone and iPad but not sure how to get the audible to play the audio book while reading the digital print. On the iPhone and iPad, I can follow along with the audio and read at the same time. I prefer this method for better retention. If anyone know how to listen to the audio book and read the digital print, all from the Mac, then please reply and help me out. Thanks in advance!

I am running IOS Yosemite 10.10.5. Since the Kindle App for my Mac updated to support the beta IOS El Capitan it's seriously faulty! Crashes, mostly crashes. When I get it to stay open for awhile, It shows fairly new stuff only, and just notifies of a failed download on ALL new books. I spent an hour and 6 Amazon agents in a chat session and they will not supply a previous version, but all those having issues must wait until they resolve the issue. How/Where do I get the version of the Kindle app prior?

Please note that you do NOT have to download the Kindle app from the Apple Mac App Store. You can still download it from Amazon via the link on this page for Amazon. IOW:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/digital/fiona/kcp-landing-page?ie=UTF8&ref_=kcp_mac_mkt_lnd

The current direct from Amazon version is still 1.12.0. If you're beta testing OS X 10.11 El Capitan, then you'll need to get, v1.12.3 from the Mac App Store.

Would like to share an email I got from Amazon a few days ago: Dear ?????? It's time to update your Kindle for Mac app! We appreciate the time you've spent reading with our Kindle for Mac app, but you have registered a version on one of your computers that is out of date and scheduled to be retired by September 15. Our latest update (version 1.11.0 or above) is still free, and includes important bug fixes that are required to continue using the app. You can easily download and install the latest version of the Kindle for Mac from our download page on Amazon. You can check the Kindle version number by choosing "Kindle" from the menu of your app and then selecting "About Kindle." Please see our troubleshooting pages for Kindle for Mac if you have any other questions. Thanks for reading with Kindle! Sincerely, The Amazon Kindle Team ======= -I called Amazon about this. Senior Amazon support staff explained that Apple requested Amazon force all Mac kindle users to upgrade to the 10.10 before they can use the latest Kindle app. And on sep.15th the app on my iMac will no longer work at all anymore. So content I have in my Amazon account is forever locked up out of my use until I upgrade my Os and the Kindle app. Would you trust Apple and Amazon now? I live on SSI/SNAP due to disabilities am born with. I cannot afford to buy a new mac let along pay for upgrading all my apps just to run on 10.10 on my 4yr old iMac. Apple and Amazon have gone to far with their controlling users. Please share and pass on this warning. I am pissed off.

Kindle for Mac version 1.11.2 is _NOT_ compatible with MacOS 10.6.x, 10.7.x, or 10.8.x After several immediate-crash launch attempts, I happened upon this page... http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201159360 ...which states: "Kindle for Mac can be used on any Apple Mac computer running OS X 10.9.5 or higher." (Both MU and the App Store still display the old min. sys req's.)

This app has a much better interface than iBooks, and is very reliable on my MBP and iMac, both of which are almost 5 years old. My only criticism is that there is no way to sort titles by date added.

This app used to work flawlessly but never worked during the Yosemite beta period, during which time I bugged Amazon, twice. And now it still doesn't work as of the date of this review, on the publicly released version of Yosemite. No doubt Amazon will fix at some point but shame on Amazon for allowing this to happen in the first place. It will load an epub doc but won't do the mobi conversion in the process. So I'm rating it 1 star for how. When they fix it, it will be back to 5 stars.
