Kindle Notepad Update V1.1

This is the first time, I am able to update a Kindle app, that I have installed on my Kindle. I did not even know, that this is possible at all.

Notepad V1.1 is available on amazon.com for $0.99 or f you already bought it, as a free update.

Firstly, if you already used Notepad for Kindle, make a backup of your notes and your backups folder on your PC or Mac before updating the application! This is just a precaution, but if anything goes wrong, don’t say you haven’t been warned.

If you have WiFi or 3G then you should do the wireless update, since it works automatically and flawlessly. If you are doing a manual transfer via USB it is even more important to backup your notes before you do the update.

To update the app via Whispersync just go to the product page Notepad V1.1. When you are logged in to your account, you will see a “Update Available” button instead of the usual one.

The new file downloads to your Kindle via WhisperNet and overwrites the existing file. This happens automatically. You haven’t to do anything, don’t try to interfere with the update by deleting any files or whatsoever.

That’s it.
