5.0 out of 5 stars this is a great app. Currently 10 April 2015

Despite a few compatibility problems, this is a great app. Currently, there are three extra editions that aren't compatible with Kindles, September and October of 1864 and April of 1865. I have contacted both Amazon and the developer about this problem, and the developer is trying to work it out. The developer tells me that he doesn't understand why Amazon lists these as incompatible with Kindles because the code is the same for all the other editions. Anyway, if the Kindle owners who want this app (and it is a great app) would email Kindle customer service, maybe this issue would be resolved. The August 1864 edition initially had problems downloading to Kindles, but they worked that out after I complained, and it is available for downloading to Kindles. This is a great app, and I wish that everyone would contact Amazon and let them know that this is an issue.

I am sick and tired of not being able to get the Extra Edition that will work on my Kindle. It seems that these people have ended the support for Kindle. I haven't been able to get a Extra Edition for the Kindle for months now. I am done!
