Amazon is warning Apple users not to download its latest Kindle App or upgrade their existing one after a slew of complaints highlighted a serious flaw in the software.

In a short statement on the iTunes service, Amazon said that "There is a known issue with this update. If you are an existing Kindle for iOS user, we recommend you do not install this update at this time."

Some of the comments below the sales page where users have reacted to the latest update suggest that it has been deleting the users books and their bookmarks when the iPad is reset.

Quite what is causing the bug is unclear, but the scale of the data being erased from users devices seems to be significant.
