Kindle for PC and Mac Forcing Update to Newer Version October 25, 2020 by Nathan 23 Comments For those of you that use an older version of the Kindle for PC or Mac application on your computer to avoid ebooks in KFX format, Amazon has started forcing an update to the latest version even if you have automatic updates turned off. Updating apps on your Kindle Fire allows you to benefit from any enhancements or changes made to apps by their developers. Apps on the Kindle Fire can be updated manually from inside the “Apps” menu on your tablet; you can also enable automatic updates if you would prefer to let the apps update on their own. Kindle for Mac, Amazon’s Mac application that allows you to read Kindle e-books on your computer, has been updated and given a fresh coat of paint. I love you. Amazon's updated reader now lets you add and edit.
You might not have noticed, but your Kindle for Mac has probably stopped syncing with Amazon since updating to OS X Lion, even if you have the most recent Kindle update. Even re-downloading it from Amazon doesn’t solve the problem.
Here’s how to fix it:
1. Delete Kindle.app from your Applications folder (don’t panic! This doesn’t delete your purchases or any added files, just the app).
2. Drag the Kindle icon off the Dock and release it anywhere on the desktop.

2. Click on the App Store icon on the Dock, search for Kindle and install.
3. Don’t forget to make a new icon for your Dock by dragging the Kindle app over from Finder.

That’s it! Syncing restored, but be aware that the App store version of Kindle is an old build. The latest Kindle build with support for Collections won’t work with Lion yet. For that, we’ll all have to wait on the developers… 🙂
