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.

Hasn't been updated in years

Needs dictionary, highlights, and a bug fix for the blank page shown when opening a book.

Better than other options like adobe.

I recently tried to purchase an ebook directly from it's published. The only e reader they offered for Windows was only for desk top computers. No touch screen capabilities and certainly no Windows 10 version or Windows Phone app. Also wasn't available for Surface users. Their best option was from Adobe and it too had none of these options. I bought it from Amazon as a kindle eBook for half the price and it works on all my devices. I would like to see the ability to zoom on a page with pinch. I would like there to be an update for a few things like that but it is still the best option.

Works, but a bit long in the tooth

If amazon adopted a 'good enough' attitude on their store front site, people would stay away in droves. The app needs a way to remove borrowed-expired. My archived list just keeps growing...

Easy to use

Shows Different Pages read, dictionary with complete meaning.

Why is 0 stars not an option?

Hate, hate this app. This app is a royal pain. It randomly (almost daily now) logs you out and when you log back in your bookshelf is empty, forcing you to re-download every book from the archive. IPhone app never did this.

Good App

Admittedly I have endured some of the other mentioned issues but I still find the app quite worth the time having, I must be more patient than most. The one thing that hasn't been mentioned is the ability to access or utilize the wish list function please add this and focus on improving the stability issues. Window Apps get shafted so much for support. *Also please add the ability to set the current saved position like on the pc app. *Please make into a UWP with Continuum Support Please allow use of the Mobile store instead of the website, the version found on the tablets is so much easy and pleasing to use.

It's okay, needs update.

Great for reading books but as far as getting comics, no go. Needs an update asap.
