Works exactly as needed, but missing Whisper Sync

While this app isn't as flashy as its android counterpart, its well-made and does what it needs to do in a nice way. However, Whisper Sync doesnt seem to work. Please keep working on it Amazon, its really due for an update. I see you are actively updating Audible, why not Kindle?

Abandoned

This app is the reason why I decided not to use Kindle subscriptions. It hasn't been updated since what seems like launch. Features were never added and any books and magazines say they aren't even available for it. I wanted to like it since I use other Amazon services but their lack of support of anything Microsoft baffles me. Their one bright star, according to others, is audible but I would rather read a book. I can only hope some day they release the rest of their apps and improve the quality but history gives me little hope.

Excellent!

Allows me to carry my library with me. Keeps me occupied. I just flat out enjoy it. Haven't used my Kindle in years. My phone, my tablet and my laptop work for me. One of my core apps, must have.

I regularly have to resize or reformat the screen to see the end of sentences. There is no word look-up function, nor can I highlight or tag text. It doesn't even update my spot in the book when I switch between the app and my kindle. *VERY POOR.* The best I can say is that the app doesn't crash.

Still bad after all these years

Sometimes words are missing between page turns. Does not auto sync, then crashes after manually sync. Can't highlight, make notes, change fonts, or turn pages using the volume buttons. Also, please dim the Windows button at the bottom of the phone. No store? No dictionary. Books don't always sync to last page.

This app really sucks for windows 8 phone. Wont let me read but one book at a time, im reading one and my kid was reading a different one but wont let us switch books. Also cuts out sentences or words and skips pages. Also dont like that can't just search books on device without having to scroll through books I dont want to download yet. This is my only device right now and all the books I have for kindle I paid for. Please fix these issues or I will delete this app and I really don't want to cause I really want to read my books. But I do not want to continue to with an app that dont work on my stupid phone.
