Kindle app on the iPad

I have just synced my iPad and I saw that I had an update to the kindle application.  When looking at the details of the update, I was shocked to see that to comply with the "App Store" conditions they had to remove the button to go to the kindle store from within the application.

In my opinion it seems petty for Apple to make Amazon remove the button from the application, users are still going to use the kindle app to purchase books etc.  By forcing them to carry out this manual step, it just gives some people out there who don't like Apple, more reasons because of issues like this, to me it just seems like Apple are flexing their muscles in this case.

I would love to know your thoughts
