    Anyone know when the Amazon app store is going to get 17.2.1 for Kindle fire 64bit tablets?

    Support replied, and stated they don't support this type of question. Maintenance on Wednesday will take down 2x of my accounts until and IF they ever release a kindle version for the 64bit kindle devices. Pretty much sucks really.

    First things first: Request a device change ID on both accounts, then store that information in a safe place.

    Then read up on what compliance with Google's 64-bit requirements really means. If I'm understanding what I've read so far correctly, it doesn't necessarily mean that devices with 32-bit processors won't be able to play the game come Monday, but rather that GungHo is required to offer a 64-bit version of the app.

    Others are welcome to correct me if I misunderstood, though.

    So far Amazon hasn't updated from 17.2.0 and that release is all that is available for now. I know I can go through the GooglePlay APK install, but really dont want to switch for that if the Amazon version is coming out soon. Both my Kindles are 64 bit.

    So the Kindles still are able to play Pad, just not sure what I am not getting since the software version is still 17.2.0?

    Anyone know?
