In case this affects you 😱
Amazon is discontinuing the Kindle for Windows 8 app, which will no longer be available to download starting October 27. Instead the company will focus on the current Kindle for PC app.
Those using the Kindle for Windows 8 app can continue to use the app, but won’t be able to download it again. They can also use the Kindle Cloud Reader if the Kindle for PC app does not work on their devices.
