Kindle app in Canada.

Hi,

 

The only app I had on the iPhone was the Kindle app. Now with my BlackBerry Z10 there is no app. There's one on amazon.com but, maybe because I'm living in Canada or because It's not available to the Z10, I can't download it. I searched the web and found nothing about an upcoming kindle app. Anyone know if a new app is planned for the Z10? Or will it be the US only app? I heard BlackBerry announced they'll have Kindle and Skype. Skype has been confirmed but I found nothing about the Kindle app.

Re: Kindle app in Canada.

No specific announcement has been made regarding when or what country.

 

**You have your mobile phone number listed as your "My Mobile Provider" or carrier. Putting your phone number out on the internet on these public forums for the world to see, is not wise. To change that, at the top of this page click on My Settings > Personal Profile > Personal Information, and in the entry block for "Carrier" type the name of your mobile provider.

Re: Kindle app in Canada.

Lol, thanks for the advise, I used chrome's auto-completion to fill the form. I'm sad to hear that there's no way to at least know if the app is planned and if it will be available outside US. This is the only app I am really missing on my BlackBerry.

Re: Kindle app in Canada.

Give them a tweet and use the hash tag #GetWithBB10 - ask them when they plan to join the BB10 army. :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Kindle app in Canada.

I have the Kindle app for Android loaded on my Z10 and it works great. You can't download it from BBWorld but it can be downloaded to your computer and "sideloaded" to the Z10. The website below has a good library of Android apps that work on the Playbook and Z10, including Kindle. You'll have to read up on how to sideload but once you've done it a few times you'll find it's not hard at all.

Good suggestion on side-loading Kindle.
