Apparently, Amazon took the decision that Microsoft is not doing enough to grow its Windows 10 fan base and don’t want to support both a Windows Store app and a win32 one — so it quit the one with less users.

Now, it’s focusing only on the Kindle app dedicated for PC. The company also noted its has been regularly updating this by constantly adding new features like better search performance, support for textbooks and multi-color highlighting.

In its statement, it added that if you are a Windows users on one or several machines, you should upgrade to the Kindle for PC app in order to enjoy the latest features available on the e-book reader and to have the best reading experience. Moreover, they are constantly upgrading the app, so you can expect further additions in the future too.

Amazon also announced that in order to provide a simplified experience for the Windows users, it will take out the Kindle for Windows 8 app so you won’t find it in the Windows Store after October 27. In case you already have the app on the PC and still want to use it, you can keep downloading and reading books just like you would normally do. However, if you uninstall it, you won’t be able to install it again from the Windows Store.

You can still download the Modern app from the store and also the Kindle for PC app until the end of the month if you think you’re missing a great opportunity here.
