Simple to use, nice way to read

It's an easy user interface that makes reading easy and enjoyable. The only inconveniences for me are the ones provided by using a computer- the glaring screen and the bulky construction. The best way to read is on a Kindle. :)

Love It Mostly

I love everything about it from the ease of reading most of my books to finding just what I need to purchase, etc. However, I don't like that it doesn't come in Windows 10. That should have been a big consideration for this app. It is most popular. Also, it should come with a how to navigate instruction. I am good for figuring things out, but everyone is not me. It would be helpful for those who are not computer savvy, or who may have learning curves or special needs. That would be most helpful. Otherwise, I am really happy with the app.

Needs work

One star is removed for the inability to delete books from "My Books." The other star is removed because there is no option for the book pages to be true to the size of the original book pages (when the book is sold both as a hard copy and digital copy), in other words, to have a consistently accurate page number. Otherwise the app is useful and user-friendly.

Windows 8 Desktop Ver.

Navigation on a desktop is easy with a touch mouse. The "snap right/left" feature allows you to keep a document open on screen while you take notes alongside in a word processor. I look forward to more features.

Way too basic

I've had Kindle apps on a variety of devices and the Windows app on my Surface is by far the worst. If it has options to change font and color schemes (inverting colors), they're too difficult to find. Turning pages is often slow, so you'll click again and suddenly you've gone too far. Amazon definitely needs to step up their game. I can't always take my Surface and Kindle with me, and the Surface can do more, so it takes precedence. Too bad Amazon made it too annoying to read on my Surface. Less time to read means I'll be buying fewer books from them.

Need to be able to organize and search library

Now I'm using Kindle books for personal and work projects, I have a lot of books and I want to be able to keep them grouped. Its hard to find the right book in a set of 100+, and its silly that you can't search the library but need to scan the covers to find the right one. Please add some basic organization and search features!

Browsing for books is so frustrating. It takes forever to load all of the books under a certain genre. Most of the time I have trouble connecting to the store. The same lovely features that are on my Samsung phone are absent here. This app is a big mess, but I am able to read my books. It's just the process of finding them that is annoying. AH! Where are my options to add another language for the dictionary! I hate that my phone version is better! P.S: I had trouble with it after my windows 10 install. It wouldn't start up, so I deleted it and reinstalled it and worked fine after.

Bug - Every time you fresh start the program in portrait view the screen is chopped on the sides to half the view normal only fixed by turning rotation lock off and spinning device.

Really - customize appearance of app?

Trying to find the place to change the appearance to use something other than a blaring white background is difficult. No where can I find a settings menu in this app - funny though how my Android phone app has that feature. Really sucky oversight. Bought my Windows tablet to use as an e-reader replacement. Maybe I'll stop buying Kindle books until this is fixed - really an app killer in my book.
