Amazon Warns iOS Users Not to Update Kindle App

If you value your library, Amazon says iOS users shouldn't download its latest Kindle app update, version 3.6.1. That's because the latest update is reportedly messing with user's library, and in some cases even deleting it altogether. 

The warning on iTunes reads, "Note: There is a known issue with this update. If you are an existing Kindle for iOS user, we recommend you do not install this update at this time." However, there have been no official statements released regarding the cause of the glitch. 

Amazon most recently brought its cloud-based music player to iPhones and iPads. The HTML 5-powered MP3 store includes 22 million songs, and offers users personalized recommendations, best-seller lists and, of course, customer ratings. Songs purchased via the MP3 store are automatically saved to your Cloud Player, which can then be downloaded to your iOS or Android device, Kindle Fire or Roku player.

When a fix is found we'll let you know, but until then, avoid updating your app.
