Kindle for iOS update erased book libraries before being fixed
| by Nishtha Kanal |
Kindle for iOS users were in for a rude shock yesterday when they updated the app to version 3.6.1, as a bug in the update wipes out entire libraries off devices. It seems the developers overlooked the bug and it was spotted too late for damage control; the Apple App Store was teeming with negative reviews and complaints by the time Amazon appended the app's description to warn users of the bug.
"If you are an existing Kindle for iOS user, we recommend you do not install this update at this time," the company wrote in its App Store description.
However, it seems the folks doing damage control at Amazon are pretty fast. The devs worked up version 3.6.2 within hours of the bug being detected, and the new version brings various bug and security fixes, including a fix for registration issues.

You can grab the fixed version from the App Store.
