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.More
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!More
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.More
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.More
A good and necessary app with a lot to be refined
The single most annoying "feature" of all versions of Kindle is its inability to give a choice of collections as opposed to opening the whole library. The whole library should the choice for sending titles to a specific collection as opposed to being the first choice upon entering the library. The add and recommendations are also annoying. Most of the time I get suggestion that has nothing to do with my preferences. For example, romance, fiction, etc.More
Too hard to read, too hard to highlight
Can't stand that I can't turn off the pop-up dictionary feature. Gets in the way of both page-turning and highlighting. Highlighting is very hard to do. Doesn't work with surface pro pen.More
I purchased a textbook for college to save money. But here's the catcher, the FORMAT is pretty much unreadable. The sentances are written VERTICALLY with only 2 lines a pages! So instead of saving money, I lost money. But I am fairly confident I would not have this issue if I had spent even more money and purchased a Kindle reader from Amazon...More
Needs updating - copy/paste doesn't work
It could be great, but as far as I can tell, you cannot copy/paste any of the text (I am using a Surface 3). I do this all the time with my Android version, which seems far more advanced. I assume it's just not been updated and this is my first taste of apps lacking with Windows. For me, this makes it useless. I like to highlight, then copy/paste into OneNote for todo lists, activities (business books), checklists, etc.More
Could be great
I like this app but I need one more feature. In touch mode a lot of time it registers touch as going to next page. This makes it hard to highlight. If they can fix this I would have given an five star.More
