I have to be connected to the internet AND logged into the Amazon Appstore..
Not good for areas with no connectivity.
Holy smoke you are right... The application runs fine with wifi turned off, but it runs behind a appstore window that closes the app when you click ok. Seems like I just need an alt-tab to switch apps and hide the notification, but I can't even bring up the menu bar. I killed a DRM management process and checkin process, and then I couldn't run the game even when connected and logged in to the Amazon app store.
Just for kicks, I started a game, turned off wifi, and returned to the game...I guess amazon got fed up with all of my messing around. Now even when connected it says "unknown error...please visit the appstore and redownload the app"...I have tried, but no joy. The app is clearly running behind the window, so the problem is not with angry birds, but with the phoning home. I guess they showed me. Or maybe they just motivated me.
Forget us guys trying to make a cheap Android pad work wonders ... I imagine when everyone who downloaded the appstore today and got a free or paid app and then tries to pass some time on the airplane tomorrow and finds that they are locked out of their apps, Amazon will get an earful.
