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.

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!

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.

READ. EVERYWHERE.

Yes, there are problems, but far more convenient than the web client, and an easy way to keep on top of multiple activities from my laptop/desktop.

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.

Horrible

I love my Kindle App on my iPad but its horrible on the surface pro 3. If it opens there are no instructions or demos on how to use it. If you get past that you'd think you were on you way WRONG! It keeps resetting the page - especially when you want to highlight - it is inconsistent and not much info online - some say its not compatible with windows 10 and no info about an update- save your sanity and use kindle on your other devices!

Meh...

It's ok for reading, but the notes & highlighting feature needs to be fixed! After highlighting text, it simply skips to the next (or previous) page. This is extremely frustrating when I opt for the eBook versions for my textbooks.

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.

Bad Formatting

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...

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.
