Amazon Kindle app gets minor update to fix crashing on Windows Phone

We’ve heard quite a lot of complaints about the official Kindle app for Windows Phone having some stability issues of late. We prefer our Kindle PaperWhite for reading of e-books but we understand many of you do prefer your phone.

The good news is a super minor update has just been pushed out to the Store and we hear fixes the crashing issue on Windows Phone 8 handsets, specifically during startup. The update brings the popular eReader up to version For what it’s worth, the app is working just fine on Lumia 920 so hopefully the rest of you will fare as well. The last update was for version 1.2 back in July.

Update: Here is the changelog

  • Fixes crashes at startup
  • Fixes crashing bugs when opening certain books

You can pick up Amazon Kindle for Windows Phone here in the Store. Let us know in comments if you're still having problems. Thanks, Aron W. and Terry H., for the tip!
