    Looks pretty neat, I'm downloading it now to try it out. Free is nice too. It is over 500MB in size though.

    weird? I downloaded it and was only 40.7MB.


    Didn't say it was better or worse. This is the app that is currently out, w/out any modifications or improvements that Amazon will surely do when they re-release it.

    Would like to know your opinion on why it's not better instead of the one-liner.

    That is for the iPad version I guess. I had wifi off and I got the 500mb warning. So I turned wifi back on and downloaded it.

    It would be funny of UpNext started this rumor just to boost its publicity. I mean who in here had heard of UpNext before this?

    500mb warning? Do you mean 50mb?

    I swear it said 500MB; I promise. Must have been a typo on the part of the app or iOS.

    EDIT: So I deleted the iPad app, turned off WiFi and re-downloaded it. This time it says 50MB. Apparently I'm quite blind at times.

    Interesting, I love competition. I like what Amazon is doing.
