Amazon Appstore update pushing out, fixes Android 4.2 login issue


So how do you tell the permissions an app has now? I used to hit details and look at the permissions first thing to see if I should bother spending any other time looking at the FAOTD, but now I can't find them at all.

And to those saying it doesn't look different at must have gotten a different update than I did. Looks totally different.

And worst of all... you can't paste a password into the password field. So if you use something complex that you don't remember (a la LastPass) you have to either write it down, or task switch back and forth while typing it in.

In the Amazon App Store login screen you cannot paste anything into the user name or password fields.

I am having the logout problem and I am NOT running 4.2. I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 running the lastest appstore version I am running Android 4.04 so in my case it isn't the 4.2 Jelly Bean issue the Nexus people are having.

I HATE having to login in to the appstore DAILY when I run a once-a-day application I use.

I am also being logged out constantly and I have the most up to date version. Plus it won't allow me to log back in if I am not on WiFi... so if it decides to log me out while I am on 4G I can't use the Appstore or any of the apps that are linked to it (like SoundHound) until I get back to a WiFi and log in again. Does anyone know what I should do??

Same issue here. Evo 4G LTE, not rooted, Jelly Bean, most recent version of Amazon Appstore. Very frustrating. It makes me want to just download all the apps from Google Play and not deal with Amazon again.
