Unable to download Kindle app.

I have just purchased a Blackberry playbook tablet for my wife to read books on. However when attempting to download the Kindle e book app onto it I hit obstacles. I have attempted now for over 2 days without success. It seems that Blackberry are using a strange system. I have never had this problem before with other devices. Can anyone help please.

Re: Unable to download Kindle app.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

With thousands of possibilities, it's impossible to diagnose "hit obstacles" and "no success". Can you perhaps be a bit more specific? For instance, from where are you downloading? AppWorld? Somewhere else? Also, when you try, what exactly happens? If you are presented with an error message, then the complete and exact content of that would be most helpful indeed. Please try to remember that we cannot see what you see...we have only your words to guide us, and it is dangerous for us to make any assumptions at all.

Thanks and let us know!
