Pretty good, but crashed MULTIPLE times, asking me to re-register my device and would wipe all of my downloads off. I would have to re-search them (the ones I could remember) and re-download.

Love the Kindle app, please update it to be Universal

Please upgrade this to a Universal Windows app, so I can use the same app on my Surface. 🙂 great experience and love the Live tiles for pinned books otherwise!

If you have trouble logging in: It's because Amazon now requires a two-step login to register a new device. They email you a temporary password after you try to login. The temp password will do it.

Ok, but could be better!

Glad that I can read my Kindle books on my Windows Phone, but the app hasn't been updated in a while. There continues to be this annoying page formatting bug where text is missing between page turns; have to page forward and back several times to recover the missing text. Come on Amazon, just because I use Windows Phone shouldn't make me a second class customer!

Kindle on Windows great

It's a kindle on Windows. I can take my eBooks without having to bring another device. Simple and easy to use.

Not great but useable

I get a blank page and have to close or kill it otherwise that page will never show. Second i would like a dictionary. I would like to hide start menu especially for night reading.

No longer can register from W10 mobile

Do you have a 650 Lumia and download this app. Were you able to register it with Amazon. I doubt it not from build 10.0.14393.448. It's no longer supported after an hour plus trying to get support for registration which ultimately they apologised telling it was a no go

Won't log in

I can't even log in. It keeps telling me my info is wrong and I know it's not because I am on amazon everyday. This app is s**t.

Login Resolved

Good app just needs to mention the two step login. It should say please check your email for a temporary login for verification.
