    Probably an obvious newbie question... I've sideloaded the Kindle App on my playbook. It works brilliantly when connected to wifi. However, when I am disconnected from wifi (like on the tube) I can open stored books but all too soon am confronted with a Kindle login page which I can't clear (as it needs to check access with the Amazon server). Is there something obvious I can do to make it work when I am offline?

    I have noticed that the app needs to log in when ever the PlayBook's Android runtime is restarted. This occasionally occurs when the PB's memory is getting low. The OS will shut it down in an attempt to recover memory. The app does log in when bridged to a BB phone.

    Thanks - so if I turn off my bridging before I travel it might stop this happening?

    I think you must stay bridge so you can have some sort of internet connection.

    Why? My Kindle app runs fine without an internet connection.

    I have no idea why - every time I try to fire it up offline (on the underground) it asks me to log in (which I can't validate - and won't allow me access to my stored library!

    Very frustrating

    Well, just because a converted android app is a later version, does not mean it works better on the PB. In fact, there are a few prime examples where the opposite is true (Google Maps, for example).

    Will look to see if I can uninstall and replace with an older version....
