This set is another alert for Kindle apps but, they're still not available globally.
The GOOD news is that apps developers say that the plan IS to make apps global, and it's just a matter of time. It has also been pointed out that Amazon only recently released apps from the first batch of international developers of Kindle Apps. These include developers from the UK and Montreal, Canada, so far. There'd be legalities, of course, and data charges to be worked out (on apps using 3G wireless). Anyway, international readers, hang in there!
Amazon's Kindle Daily Post, seen at the top right of the Kindle Store's front webpage, featured this week the popular Notepad by the 7 Dragons group and included the new photo at the left.
The Kindle version of the Kindlestore, which is always linked on the front-page of a Kindle visit to the Kindle Store (via the Menu or by doing an alt-Home shortcut on your Kindle) does NOT include (at least today) the games or apps that are on the website version. Thanks to AthenaAtDelphi from The Netherlands for the correction in the Comments area.
Those new to Notepad might want to see the original blog entry for Notepad There are some Kindle forum threads that discuss how people use it, what questions they have, suggestions for the future, etc., and the 7 Dragons Team gives specific links on their website pages that give more information and video examples for the questions being asked. They also tend to answer questions rather quickly, while they do this on their own website.
Three Notepad forum threads I've seen: (1), (2), (3).
