It looks like someone got tired of waiting, because The Walking Dead is now available for download on Amazon's branded Appstore. But don't open a new tab just yet, zombie fans - it looks like this game is restricted to downloads on the Kindle Fire HDX (and probably the larger HDX 8.9) at the moment.

Kindle MatchBook Launches With 7x The Titles Amazon Promised In Last Month's Announcement

Last month Amazon announced MatchBook, a new service that gives customers the option to get discounted Kindle versions of physical books they've already bought.

MatchBook

Eligible books date back to 1995, the year when Amazon first launched its online bookstore. Just remember that only purchases tied to your current account will apply, so while many of us didn't have email address way back when, those that did probably haven't held on to them.

Amazon's new service is called Kindle MatchBook, and it lets you buy the Kindle edition of books at a steep discount if you've bought them in physical form from Amazon at some point in the past.

Amazon's Kindle App Hits Version 4.0 With Reworked Interface

Amazon's Kindle app has just received a significant update, bringing the reader up to version 4 and introducing a refreshed UI, among other things.

Just when I'd decided to try switching to Play Books (despite giving up things like quick two-finger brightness adjustment), Amazon has introduced a redesigned library that's much more lively than a simple grid of book covers. The new library interface has your books plus a nice "carousel" up top for recent items.
