This application needs a new one

This application is by all measures needs a new one. It is lacking many features that are available in other Kindle apps for other platforms, is buggy, navigation is poor and has some silly problems like sometimes now allowing me to navigate backwards from the point I open the book (i.e., I've been reading a book in another device, open on my Windows box where I left off and try to navigate backwards and it just freezes). Also it should take advantage of the touch and pen features on Windows as I'd love to be able to annotate my books while I read when using a Surface device.

No dictionary attached

I highlight a word in the book that I'm reading that I want to know the definition to and there's no dictionary attached. Why not? It would be nice to have the option of highlighting, finding out the definition of a word and dog earring a page. Please let me know if you can add these three items to this application. Thank you.

Highlights and Notes

The app syncs books, notes, and marks across all your devices, which is great. However, on the PC version, it is very difficult to take notes or highlight anything. When you highlight text in the lower half of the screen (left mouse-click and drag), you are unable to access the "Highlight/Note" option. It just doesn't appear. This is frustrating to no end. People have been commenting on this issue for a few months, yet it still has not been fixed.

does not recognize windows 10 as windows 10

does not work properly with windows 10, app still thinks its windows 8.1. waste of time using this app as not all of your books will be available. this kindle app does not allow you to open all of your books, especially academic related books. no convenient, not easy to use. use the kindle tablet or something else not windows related to view kindle e-books.

Quite literally the worst

Hasn't been updated in ages, doesn't allow me to access half my content, can't read some books I've purchased because "they're not available on Windows 8." This app is a failure from amazon and should be completely redone. I expect much higher quality products from amazon, as they have set a high standard for themselves, but this just doesn't live up to their standards. It's barely functional, which doesn't make sense given how well the android version works. Please fix this!

Please fix bugs

I love reading and enjoy my personal kindle. I downloaded this app when my kindle disappeared for a day. At first it was great, but when I finished a book and tried to access my library I was unable to do so. The only way for me to exit book was by uninstalling app. I re-downloaded app and tried again. Same thing happened. I'm very disappointed in this app. I've only had this computer for three weeks. I should not be having any problems with any apps. Please take care of this!!!

Windows 10

I just switched to windows 10, but didn't use the app before. I was going to use it for my online textbook and I can't even download the book because the app won't open. it just keeps saying "sign out unsuccessful". Definitely frustrating.. I have been trying for almost a week and my assignments re going to be late... FML...

Love it, but won't stay open!

I love this app. When I had windows 8.1, it was working great. I just switched over to Windows 10, and now it won't stay open. I had the same problem with Student Planner, but after writing a review, the problem was fixed.

Awesome app

Book store prices are really expensive, and kindle is a great way to read at a lower price. They also have a huge selection of books fore all ages.

Better on the phone.

Trying to use it on windows 10 is a huge pain. You have to right click each individual one to download and if you accidentally click open a book... too bad, all your download progress is lost and you have to do it all over again!
