    kindle app for coby 9742

    I can't seem to get the kindle app to work. It gets all the way through downloading te book then it closes the app. Has anyone got it working on the coby 9742?

    I'll download it and let you know if it works on my 9742. I personally use Aldiko and CoolReader for my ebooks, so I don't generally bother with the Kindle app.

    UPDATE: Downloaded Les MiserablÚs by Victor Hugo without problem. Possibly a bad WiFi signal or else your configuration differs from mine.

    The majority of my electronic book collection, based on download date, predates the Kindle. In fact, some of it predates Android itself. Thus I had never seen the need to get either a Kindle or the Kindle app, even though my Dell Streak had it preinstalled.

    I'd be happy if I could convert the kindle books to e books. I just want to be able to read them on the tablet. Right now I read them all on my phone, it's pretty small, lol.

    While Amazon's book formats can be converted to EPUB or TXT versions usable in other readers, there is an issue of legality. Most ebooks, except for some classics from Amazon and Google as well as ones from outlets like Project Gutenberg, have DRM restricting the devices the ebooks can be used on. Stripping DRM in the US, even for normally lawful purposes such as setting the file up for use in your book reader app of choice, runs afoul of the DMCA. So unfortunately, while I can tell you it can be done, I can't tell you how it's done.

    Now, on the topic of using the Kindle app itself, other than rooting your tablet have you made any modifications to the tablet, such as applying my tweaks?
