I am preparing for a presentation that concerns the hidden potential in Kindle services. In preparing to discuss the options for viewing documents uploaded to Kinde (e.g., pdfs of content I might want to read on various devices), I discover that in addition to the “mail to my special Kindle email address” option, there is now a PC or Mac app dedicated to this purpose. This sounded more practical than remembering the weird email address I am supposed to use.
I download the app to my Mac (running the newest and greatest OS) and I see the following:
I admit this confused me and it took some time to figure out why. I interpreted the message to indicate that I could not download the app. This seemed to be what was happening. Actually, I was downloading the app, but the message was generated when the OS then automatically attempted to launch the app after download. I was also confused by the message itself. Somehow I assumed that Apple would be aware of Amazon and Kindle products.
OK – here is what you may find useful.
Should you receive such a message when downloading software from an unknown developer, open security preferences and rest the download option to download from anywhere. This may be a bit deceptive – look in downloads and see if the offending download is not already there and simply needs to be opened. Once, finished reset your security settings. You make your own decision regarding whether from app store or from identified developers means different things,
