Last week, Amazon released a new updates for Kindle Fire. The release version is 6.2.1. Similar to the rest of the Kindle upgrade, the upgrades was pushed through backend automatically to users’ devices through WIFI connectivity.
Before the 6.2.1 update, the most complaints get from the users is about the bad performance. Here are some of the performance boost.
- The smoothness of the animation effect gets quite significant improvement, especially when users slide across the different app.
- Customize your home screen. Now users able to remove app they didn’t want it to appear on the home screen to be removed.
- Increase the difficulty to root your device. Older jail breaking/’rooting’ method for Android such as SuperOneClick is not workable anymore for the new firmware update.
- Adding “Restriction” feature for shopping cart. Earlier too many adults complain about the purchase process is too simple. It causes their kids to make purchase too easy.
