I originally gave this one star, however I am changing it to three. Why? It opens books without a problem, however if you are planning to read manga/comics go ahead and forget about it, it won't download. If whoever is part of the team fixes the problem with this then I'll bump it up to five.

Love Kindle, but app is poorly designed. Often loses a line at the bottom of the screen, likely due to the collapsible nav bar. Hiding the bar, however, quickly makes the text disappear entirely. Resizing the font is necessary to view the line.

Why use this app when other devices are better? When I read I always want to mark things to look at later. Kindle reader for windows phone lets you read the book but not highlight text or add notes. Why would I read on the windows phone when I have an android tablet that lets me highlight? Seems like I'm always asking that about my windows phone.

Loyal Amazonian Terribly Disappointed I have four Kindles, and have used the iPhone and iPad apps. But the Windows app, by a degree I didn't imagine possible, is the hands-down worst one of the bunch. Unbelievable! Please Amazon, you have to do something about this--we can't save text, write notes, and most appallingly we can't even query a dictionary. What's going on here? Please do something to bring this app up to snuff!!

At least it exists

But that's about all you can say about it. Live tile isn't transparent or useful, and navigation within books is nearly impossible - no bookmarks, no search. Biggest problem: The app periodically skips several lines when moving from page to page. Really hope there's a universal app down the road somewhere...

Doesn't even show, never mind sync, any of the books I sideload onto my kindle paperwhite, only those books bought from amazon, which pretty much makes it useless.

I like it. Never had a problem with the books I've been reading. App has been responsive and neat. I mostly read text-heavy books though. Maybe that has something to do with it? Thanks Amazon for making this app available on windows phone.

Hasn't been updated in years, still no selecting text, search, or dictionary, occasional bugs when opening the app... Overall shoddy product.

Buggiest app you could possibly imagine from one of the largest technology companies in the world, it's shameful at best, crashes a lot, makes you re-register and redownload your books often. Many people should be fired for this travesty.

Frustrating!

Every time i launch this app the page I am reading is missing the last line. I have to resize the font to something else and then back for the line to magically show up. Then it does it randomly for other pages. This makes for especially difficult reading since it's hard to tell when the last line is hidden which makes the book make no sense!!!! This issue has been around for years and has been reported and amazon shows no interest in fixing it!
