This often overlooked app has always been a great back up option for reading Kindle ebooks. You could use it to peruse the notes you’ve made in Kindle ebooks, and it even had an offline mode which would store ebooks locally so you could read them when you were offline.
Or at least it used to have an offline option; there’s a report over at MobileRead that this feature has disappeared:
Kindle cloud reader offline doesn’t work anymore. The “Cloud” and “Downloaded” tabs have disappeared.
I just checked, and I can’t find it either. The offline mode is gone.
Any guesses what happened? (I would check with Amazon CS but this is one area where their scripts will give them helpful nothing to say – I’ve seen it before.)
