Kindle app icon opens market instead on GS2
Edited by freshly on Oct 10, 2011 at 12:16:18 PM

Samsung GS2 -

Just curious if anyone else noticed this problem, or perhaps had a solution. When I click the Amazon Kindle app icon, it opens the Andoid Marketplace app instead. Uninstalling and re-installing the Kindle app did not fix the issue.

 

Has anyone seen this? Any ideas to fix it are appreciated.

Thanks

IIRC, out of box, it is a shortcut to market for downloading and installing the Kindle app. You need to install it within the market. Then, the icon will change to launch the app.

That's what I figured. However I apparently got myself into a bad state by deleting from Settings --> Applications, and then reinstalling from the Market. It was still linking to the Market app.

 

I fixed this by uninstalling it within the Market app first, then reinstalling from Market. Now it works correctly.
