Amazon Kindle reader app for Nokia N9 now called "Erudite", improved offline usage
Editor: Andrew Flegg
Michael Sheldon has renamed, and updated, his "Firestarter" application; which provides access to Amazon's Kindle Cloud Reader: Unfortunately since Amazon own a wide range of “Fire” themed trademarks, and the application’s operation is heavily related to the same areas that these trademarks are used in, Amazon couldn’t really let me carry on using the name “Firestarter”. It was entirely my own foolishness that caused this hassle by going for a “clever” name without even considering the potential trademark implications, thankfully the lawyer who got in touch with me was very understanding and patiently helped me work through the various issues. I’m just glad that Amazon handled everything so amicably, rather than wading in with heavy-handed legal threats as some companies might. So from now on the application is called “Erudite”, a name that’s clever in a different way.
Erudite is available in the Nokia Store for around £1.50, and has been working well for your editor.
