What happened to all my Kindle books on my iPad?

JOiseau

I updated the Kindle app earlier this week, and when I was getting ready to do a little bedtime reading last night all of my books were gone, my bookmarks were erased, and the settings were changed! What's going on, was Amazon hacked, was I hacked, or was the update corrupted? Any ideas on what happened?

Amazon goofed with an update, it should be fine now. Just download your books again, and you'll be all set once you install the update to the update. Heh.

That was a buggy update. If you go to the app store, you should be able to download an "updated update" that takes care of the problem. You might have to re-download your books, though.
