Earlier I wrote about the solution two forumners found for a situation in which Kindle books seemed to disappear in both the Kindle Fire listings and in the "Cloud" (server) listings as well.
Today's Kindle Fire tip is how to correct a glitch that causes a currently-purchased Kindle book to NOT download to the Kindle Fire, whether the attempted download is done via the Kindle Fire itself or from the Amazon ManageYourKindle page.
The solution comes from forum member Josh -- and that is to:
. Lightly touch the gear or wheel icon at the top right
. Then select "+" or "More" to get Settings menu
. Select "My Account" (2nd on the settings list)
. Select "Deregister"
Once that's done, you can "Reregister" right away and all your info is there for you -- no need to retype it.
A mere deregister-register action saves a lot of time over the last-ditch "Reset to Factory Defaults" which I (and some senior Kindle support staff) feel should be a LAST choice, as a Factory-Default reset requires you to re-enter your basic Amazon and Kindle information and to select books and other media all over again (to re-populate the device) and to re-set up things the way you've wanted them, which can take an hour for most situations.
Ashley seconds Josh's recommendation after his own experience based on the advice of a lone Kindle Fire specialist (among a few others who did not know a solution to this) who suggested he de-register and re-register the KFire. Ashley wrote:
"This worked and it only took 10 sec. In addition I lost none of my settings/apps/content."
Popular Read It Later Android app renamed to "Pocket" and now free
paidContent's Laura Hazard Owen reports that Read It Later will no longer have a
The founder, Nate Weiner, told Owen that the app was profitable right away and has been the "number-one paid news app on Android and Kindle Fire." He says he's after a different business model now, which he'll explain this summer.
The app already has 4.5 million users and its most popular source of content to take to enjoy "later" is Youtube and its videos.
' Forty percent of items saved aren’t articles but content like videos, images, things to buy, travel tips and recipes. '
Owen adds that the new version of the app "makes it easier to filter content by type and to tag and organize it."
If you already own Read It Later Pro, you'll just need to update the app.
"Users of the free version have to download Pocket separately."
The Amazon product page emphasizes the new user-interface and the Content-Type filter -- "Pocket automatically filters your content so that you can quickly switch between articles, videos, and images."
