On the Kindle for PC, there is a button at the top, under the Help tab, for "Send Feedback."

About a year ago, I had requested that Amazon please add sorting by SUBJECT to sort our Kindle eBooks. I got back the generic, canned response, "Thank you for the suggestion. I have passed your message on to the appropriate department in our company for consideration.  If we get MANY requests for the same features, we will consider adding them." Well, it took a year, but Amazon did come through.

NOW, it's time to request Kindle GAMES to be played on the Kindle for PC app, too. We can't even order the freebie games, unless we have a (real) Kindle, not the apps. So I haven't been able to save up for them, for when I do get a Kindle. I might get a tablet instead and simply load the Kindle for PC app on.

That means, unless Amazon gets a flow of requests to be able to play Kindle games on the Kindle for PC and other apps, it might take another year to see this happen - if at all. Let's not wait a year. We have the power of the Internet here at this forum! Send in some requests. Even if you won't play Kindle games yourself, ask for the rest of us who will. All I want is to play simple games like mah jongg and scrabble and solitare.

It's very EASY. Please click on Help, then the "Send Feedback" tab and cut and paste this into the comment box:

Please add Kindle games to be able to be played on the Kindle for PC and other apps. laugh

Hey, I'll even take a separate Kindle game app, if the Amazon does not want to add the extra MBs onto the Kindle reading apps.

Send feedback so they know we want it.

barbara- you can download an app that gets you amazon game apps. you dont need to go thru the kindle app for those.   This app works on the android system.

The reason I am requesting games for the Kindle for PC is because Amazon gives out FREE games for the Kindle every few weeks. These games are different than their regular video games. These ONLY work on Kindle devices.

This is PRECISELY why I said as a group, we need to send emails or sending feedback through the apps system. Until and unless we ASK for the ability for games to be played on Kindle apps, we aren't going to get it. We have to be proactive here in letting them know we want it.

Good going, Barbara for emailing them about it. yes
