    Okay, it's on. pReader in full TouchPad format. The only thing that I still need to make the device replace my laptop, and become my portable device of choice, is doc editing.

    Really? How did you do it? Though I'm surmising from your second sentence, it might not be worth installing...

The other alternative is to deregister the touchpad and then sign in again.
    hmmm-my K3 is my primary reader so when I was at the Amazon site I had to use the dropdown to pick my TP. I am finding that when I download a book from archives I get a 2nd "bonus" unasked for, unrelated book downloaded (didn't happen when I sent the purchase right to the TP).

    I noticed tonight an update to the kindle app in the software manager.

    anyone know what"s different? Looks the same to me.

    [whoops this has come up in its own thread, please don't answer here, but in that thread. Mods delete?]

    anyone know if a kindle app will be available for 2.2?

    from our friends at Amazon.

    last week, I asked this: Your other Kindle apps support mobi files, but I don't see these books in my touchpad kindle app. Is this functionality coming? If so, do you have an expected date?

    Kindle Support Response: "Hello, I'm sorry for any of the misunderstanding you had in regards to this issue.

    Please note that currently you can't open mobi files or any personal pdoc files using any Kindle reading application"

    Did they just lie to me? I have seen mobi files on EVERY other Kindle app and the Kindle device I use!

    Anyone know if the Kindle App is written by HP or Amazon?

    Curious who I report problems too, since Kindle (latest version) still doesn't play Kindle Vook (Video Book) video content. Thanks, Sorli...

    Looks like one of the webOS devs is making progress with Mobi and Kindle

    Support is through Amazon, not HP.

    A little more detail than I put in that article. There are two plugins that the Touchpad Kindle app uses. A utility and the main processor. This has no problem reading the .mobi files I have. The only changes that would be needed is the ability to load books and coverImages into the directory and data about the book into the DB used by the App. I'm not going to pursue this too much, until the Kindle app is out of Beta. (They may add it, who knows.) But it should be possible as a patch to the app if they don't, because all of this functionality should be in the Enyo layer of code.

    I can't answer that directly, but the namespace for the app is com.palm.app.kindle. This is done for two reasons: it was built by Hpalm or it need special rights. "com.palm" starting name spaces often get extra rights to do things on the device that they otherwise would not be allowed. We have seen some things that needed this name space there were not really written by Hpalm. However, it suggests that this might be an HP created app.

    Since it uses hybid components, it would need to be compiled for the platforms. i.e. I don't think it could be sucked off the Touchpad and just loaded onto a Veer or Pre 3 (ignoring the UI size differences).

    Your Pre wants Word Whirl from the App Catalog.

    It told me.

    Anyone attempting the hack I posted on my site, please read the warning now linked at the end. I have found some mobi books will crash the App and require delete and reloading of the Kindle App.

    You can pretty much format any book into any other format with Calibre. It's pretty easy to do.

    And then get the Touchpad Kindle app to read them how?

    The mobi that I crashed the Kindle App with is from Calibre. But I think it was .mobi originally, so it didn't do any conversion.

    I've switched to pReader currently, until I get time to hack on the Kindle app more. It works full screen on the Touchpad, just not quite a clean to used. And back is done with a Menu option.

    Read up higher. Currently the only method I know of is hacking them over another book, as I posted on my site.

    Please avoid this program as it is a rip off of Calibre which is free and open soruce.

    I am most definitely connected to the internet though, as I' writing this with my TouchPad right now! I've tried it at least 20 times, even with incorrect credentials, and get the same thing. I've done both a luna and a device restart, but no help. I even deleted it and reinstalled it in the hopes that it would fix it but nope. Currently connected to home WiFi with Comcast. I had Ad Blocker installed, but upon problems removed it (and restarted) and it still acts the same.

    I have an Amazon account, but have never tried a Kindle or looked at any of the digital books.
    I have the same problem...on my Pre 3. Have you ever found the solution?
