We've received several reports of Kindle users who installed the Anki OVERDRIVE app via the Amazon App Store (or the alternative .apk file) and are now experiencing an issue where the app will not completely load after installation. This article explains a potential workaround.
- Anki OVERDRIVE app
If you installed the Anki OVERDRIVE App on your Amazon Kindle and now the app launches, but stops loading at the end of the progress bar, these steps might help to resolve your issue.
- Stop the Anki OVERDRIVE App or restart your Kindle
- Temporarily install a "file manager" app on your Kindle
- Here are 3 potential examples*
- obb that is located in /sdcard/Android/
- The full path of the new folder should be: /sdcard/Android/obb
The next time you launch the Anki OVERDRIVE app, it should not hang and should completely load. You can now delete the file manager app since it is no longer required.
If you are having issues installing or using a "file manager app" on your Kindle, please contact the experts in that app or the Kindle - the app developer or Amazon Kindle Support.
