Amazon apps requiring login
« on: November 18, 2012, 02:30:26 PM »
Hello forum folks -

Every once in a while I'll snag an Amazon free app of the day, mostly games.

I noticed this past week that the games require that I login to the Amazon app store before the game will load. If I skip the login the game simply closes.

Is anyone else experiencing this? If not, what am I doing that is causing this?

Bottom line, I won't be able to play any of these games when I don't have wireless access.

Cheers,
- martyh

The new update 4.2 is causing some issues with Amazon. The developers are aware and working on it.

After logging in to amazon, minimize the app. This will allow those programs to run until memory management kills it. Each time you log on it will add a device instance in my amazon/my devices for a maximum of 25. So you'll have to go there and delete your 25 nexus 7 entries to keep logging in.
Should be fixed soon, they don't want to lose all our money.

I've switched all the free stuff to google play.

We are experiencing the same problem and many more on both of our 7 tablets. Kaspersky Mobile no longer works (expensive purchase). We have to sign in every time we try to download an app from Amazon. We have lost the stock browser and its icon as well.

Can anyone help? Screw Kaspersky, I spent almost two hours on the phone (India) with them only to be told that they don't support tablet assistance!!!!!
