Kindle for OSX v1.11.2 Adds Support for Textbook Trials, Japan Marketplace

kindle itunes logo Amazon rolled out an update today for its Kindle app for OSX, and users aren't pleased.

According to Amazon, the improvements include the usual miscellaneous bug fixes and performance improvements as well as new support for the free trial period for textbooks, and support for "Japan marketplace" (huhwhat?)

Not having a Mac myself, I can't offer a first-hand report on how well the app performs after the update. But I did notice that the update is getting negative reviews on Twitter:


You can find the app in the Mac App Store.


  • Support for Japan marketplace.
  • Support for Textbook free trials.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes and performance improvements.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
