Love it! (by Allydecaire on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 16:06:00)
I love this ! I love being able to have my books with me wherever I go.
Love it! My only reading app :) (by Themartinfarm on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 15:34:00)
I love this Kindle App! I have been using it about 5 yrs & never been disappointed :)
A Library in My Pocket (by SisterSimmons on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 15:10:00)
I love my Kindle Ap and use it all the time.
Kindle reader (by KnotGone on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 15:02:00)
I use it every day on iphone and ipad. Don't know what I'd do without Kindle. Best app ever.
Love it! (by JV-tro on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 15:01:00)
Couldn't live without it!!
Back-handed compliment ... (by PamG on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:41:00)
I've managed to bust 2 kindles in the time I've owned iPads so, by default, this app on my iPad is my reader. It works just fine but I really wish the e-readers were sturdier. For the record, I do not mistreat my electronics.
Addicted (by LN H2OS on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:58:00)
I'm constantly reading on here. I just can't get enough!!
Love my kindle (by L&Spurser on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:44:00)
I love having all my books with me and they fit right in my pocket. When I have any extra time waiting anywhere I just pull it out of my pocket and my page is saved right where I left off. I really enjoyed the loan feature, sometimes my wife and I read the same kind of book and it makes it nice to be able to share. I also like reading at night and I don't have to have a lamp on that keeps my wife awake.
Needed this app (by BabyGoose34 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:41:00)
This app is great. Don't need to carry 2 devices now.
One of my favorite must have apps (by Queenofharts229 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:39:00)
I love this app!! I have a kindle and a 9 year old daughter who loves to read. We were constantly having to take turns with the kindle but with this app I can read on my iPhone. We can trade back and forth between kindle and phone and it syncs to the furthest page read. It's never shut down on me the way some other apps have and I'm still able to book mark and highlight things like with my kindle. Very happy.
Favorite App (by Addi1020 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:13:00)
My favorite app and the one I probably take most for granted. Like and old friend that is always there when you need to curl up and de-stress, escape from your cares, or just find something interesting to talk about. Thanks for reminding me to tell you how much I love it!
Suggestion (by As Charley on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:09:00)
Should have a way to rate the books in the library that I have read. Perhaps A to F, that way when I go back to the Cloud to recommend a book I'll remember which are the ones I liked the most.
Kindle (by CSRDF on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 11:26:00)
I have been reading books in a Kindle almost from the first time it came in the Market. I enjoy the fact that when I go on vacations I don't have to take several books with me, as I have my entire book collection at my finger tips. I have the Kindle app in my iPad and iPhone and it is very nice to have all my books in all my "gadgets" although in bright sun light nothing beats the Kindle.
Ann (by Alandcar on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 09:59:00)
Very pleased with this app. I use it everyday. I carry my library of books to read at my convenience throughout the day.
Kindle fire a great gift on my iPhone (by Grace Peace1.6 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 09:40:00)
For avid readers like me this is the best, as compared to reading off line or on my iPad love my iPad, but it doesn't fit into my pocket. I can read anywhere and in any place.
A Reader's Best Friend! (by AuntGirlie on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 08:31:00)
Reading my favorite books became so much easier with the Kindle for iPhone. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys reading.
Reading on iPhone (by Jeannie2454 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 08:26:00)
I read constantly on my iPhone using the Kindle app - it's so much easier than carrying a book with me. I have an unlimited number of books with me at all times. I'm 60 years old and it has been very easy to transition from books to the app.
Mistake reporting (by gritchie1 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 07:09:00)
Love kindle, but I do seem to find more mistakes than in regular books. I wish there was some way to report them. Thanks.
Love my Kindle (by Glenda52 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 05:31:00)
I would be lost without my kindle, kindle fire and kindle for iPad. I have the bases covered. I never leave home without at least one!
I love Kindle for iPhone (by ♠Jen on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 04:15:00)
I love this app. I don't do anything special with it except look up definitions. Other than that, I just read and it is perfect for that. Some books show 'locations' rather than page numbers, and that is rather annoying, but I don't know if that is tKindle's fault or the books'. That's my only minor complaint I love Kindle, and can't get enough.
Physiological lifeline (by Necolem on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 03:54:00)
My Kindle is a major part of my life. I use it everyday no matter where I go. I escape into a place where I have captured books that allow me to grow, debrief, exhale, reflect and laugh. I can bounce between books with no effort and with the tip of my finger go to a place where no one can touch or judge my interest.
Love me some books (by Grateful User on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 03:26:00)
Can't imagine not having the convenience and luxury of on demand books. Thank goodness for my kindle apps
Fire fighter (by Jhcwyo on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 03:07:00)
Here's the crux The iPad matches Kindle with Amazon's great software and you have an iPad instead of an inferior Kindle Fire for all the rest of your hardware lusts. Now let's see Apple sell iBook apps for Amazon gadgets? And Nooks? Not iTunes; not ePub files just iBook apps.
The best book app! (by Pink Poodle 68 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 02:55:00)
I read all my books through Kindle. I wouldn't use anything else!
Love this App (by dhunter925 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 02:54:00)
I recommend it to all my coworkers and friends. So easy to use and I love reading my books on the app.
THIS APP IS AWESOMMME!!!! (by CBbabyyx3 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 02:52:00)
Best app ever!! I can live on this app for days its addicting
Using Kindle (by Katvonbeach13 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 02:42:00)
Just love having Kindle on my iPhone! I am putting all my crochet patterns on Kindle for storage! :0)
Kindle is Great! (by cai21 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 02:41:00)
I really like Kindle books. I started reading them with a very basic kindle reader. However, since I got my iPad Air and iPad mini, I enjoy reading Kindle book even more. With my iPads I have a great browsing device, portable tech tools and a reader all in one device. It's simply the best!
Love my kindle app (by 2nu4mr on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 02:22:00)
I am so happy I downloaded the kindle app. I love not having to carry books around and that I can have the books I order ready to read within seconds of purchasing them. It has given me access to books I otherwise wouldn't be reading at a lower price than a hard back or paperback book. I definitely recommend downloading it if you love to read.
Great app for reading anytime, anywhere! (by MW422222 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 02:12:00)
Great app for reading anytime, anywhere!
Kindle app (by B-rights star on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:37:00)
I'm an avid read and I use my kindle app daily. It's the only e-reader I use!! It's great!!
Enjoy the read (by Texas Pop Pop on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:34:00)
Kindle for iPad is a great way to keep up with your best books.
Wonderful!!! (by Lourdes Villafane on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:24:00)
I have this app for about 5 years now and I will not give it up. It has all the books I look for and them some.... I had read about 300 books already and it has not fail me yet. The books download fast and are ready to read in less than a minute!!! I love this app!!!!
Great for reading on the go! (by REAHII on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:22:00)
I use this app a lot.
Love It! (by xRishax on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:18:00)
it's an app for reading your kindle books...nothing fancy but I do enjoy that this app is free. I'm really happy that AMZN hasn't put a price on it.
Great easy reading app (by devldave on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:15:00)
Simple interface, clean and straightforward. A pleasure to read with.
Awesome (by Kbritt1321 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:09:00)
The Kindle app is awesome! There is so many great books to choose from. There is great features to work with and it's a terrific app for finding new and interesting books!
Love the kindle (by Pbch on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:06:00)
I love my kindle.. My 1st question whn I but a new electronic is, can I get the kindle on there..
Better than iBooks (by Wadesis on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:04:00)
The Kindle app in my iPad is the best app on it. I love to read and this app makes it easy. You can sort your library several ways ( can't do this on iBooks) and if you try to buy the same book twice, it will tell you that you already have it. My iPad is easier to hold than a hardback or paperback. I get bargain books from Bookbub and always have something to read.
Kindle App Review (by UKbballfan on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 01:00:00)
I mainly read all books on my Kindle App on my phone and love it. I have done this for years now and it is so convenient.
Kindle App (by Dandy Don 2 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 00:43:00)
My wife turned me on to this app and I really love it. It's easy to use and I really like the simply easy book downloading. Thanks Kindle.
Greater New version (by meguminator on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 00:37:00)
The new update is great, especially the book browser!
Awesome app! (by Iaccountforyourlosses on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 00:13:00)
This is the most frequent app I use on my phone. I absolutely love it.
Love this app!! (by Dal skid on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 00:10:00)
The Kindle app allows me to read my book no matter where I am. I have had several Kindles and I have an iPad with the Kindle app, but I find myself reading most of my books on my iPhone because no matter what I always have my iPhone with me. I love that I can switch between devices as the app syncs between all my Kindle devices. It's one of the best apps I have on my iPhone and iPad!!!
Love it (by MsQnbee on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 00:02:00)
Love this app! I use it more than any of my apps
Simply the best. (by Steinway72 on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 00:01:00)
I consider the Kindle app to be the best app I have on any of my devices. I love that my books sync across all devices so that no matter where I am when I find a moment to read, I can pick up right where I left off. I have had the Kindle app on multiple devices with various platforms over several years and it has always been 100% reliable. I have never lost anything. The way the app integrates with Amazon and my local digital library system is fantastic. It's the type of perfectly synchronized system that makes you forget the complexity behind it because it runs so seamlessly. Love it!
Very Good App (by Rohen of Nar on Fri, 12 Dec 2014 11:26:00)
When Kindle first debuted around 2007 I was one of those buyers that flocked to the original e-reader. Since getting my iPhone years ago my original Kindle is somewhere collecting dust. This app makes it so that my reading is still portable, but now lighter and more practical than ever. The larger screen of the iPhone 6 has facilitated reading also. Love having my Kindle as an app.
Use all the time, but could be so much better. (by Euby's Mom on Fri, 12 Dec 2014 11:23:00)
Firstly, the current app version does not seem to be playing nice with the latest iOS update. It crashes constantly and I have just had to delete the app due to freezing, which in turn loses all the books I had downloaded previously and all the percent complete indicators are gone. Thanks Amazon for that little gem. Other issues I am having are: - I send a book to my iPad, it's not always there, I have to get it from the Cloud, or it looks like it's there, I try to open it, I get a teaser that it's going to, then it flips back the the cloud list and I have download it. - I open the app, where is the book I was reading? Now all I can see is my list of books and I have to select my book again. I do love that I can see all the book covers vividly, as that reminds me what I've read. I have no problems with the 'in-book' functionality. There are some things though that would make the user experience much more enjoyable and the product itself far handier: - Return Kindle Unlimited books from the app. The return workflow is onerous. Making users return to the Amazon website to manage their content is annoying and ill-considered. - Improve collections. Organizing books when you have many is a must. At a minimum, create an 'Unread' collection that all books are categorized under until you open them to make it easy to find ones that are TBR. - Allow users to rate their books. I read so much, I often forget about books I really enjoyed and would reread. If I could rate my books (star rating perhaps?) it would help look over my library and identify ones I'd spend additional time on. I've had various gen Kindles and far prefer using the Kindle app on my iPad - any small improvements (and fixes please! - crashing, not good!) are a huge bonus to anyone Iike myself that spends a lot of their free time reading.
Upgrade (by Mike6CA on Thu, 11 Dec 2014 21:12:00)
Excellent app but would be really nice to be able to purchase books with it.
Ok I guess (by In love❤️💙💚😍 on Thu, 11 Dec 2014 20:04:00)
It was ok but they can do so much better
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 51th to 100th
Mediocrity Embodied (by revzak on Thu, 11 Dec 2014 14:53:00)
I gave this app four stars because I am lumping it in with my Kindle. I like being able to carry several books around in such a lite package. There is a but here. Compared to iBooks Kindle is a mess. It is good for pulp work but a mess for academic texts. It also jumps pages so I usually bookmark my place ever few pages so I can find where I was when it jumps. Text books that have columns and otherwise formatted material do not render in their original format in Kindle. I've made the mistake of getting texts in this format only to end up buying the hard copy. I do like seeing what I bought in this app because it is in color and I am a visual person. The last "but" is that it is so mediocre. There are so many things I don't like about it, a review would not do justice to my objections. One main one is that there are shadow underlines and highlights, based on other people's reading experience. I would like to opt out of these. It is like buying a used book that someone else had marked up except that I cannot loan out my Kindle books or my iBook books. I bought it and I should be able to give it away or loan it as I wish.
The App That Wasn't (by HumbleManWhoLikesToRead on Thu, 11 Dec 2014 11:56:00)
I have Kindle Reader for my PC, which is located on the "BootCamp" side of this Mac running at 10.6.8 OS. I could not get the MAC App to download on my my Mac. Amazon doesn't even carry the App at their site as the do for the PC. T(The PC had no problem whatsoever, which speaks volumes.) Yes, I am registered at the Apple Store and amazing found a way to download the Kindle App which later identified itself as just for being for iPads and iPhones regardless that I got it from the Mac portion of the store!!! I wonder how many other people have had problems with this??? If you're looking to read Kindle books on your MAC, don't waste your time!!!
Kindle for other devices of Apple. (by Jasry56 on Wed, 10 Dec 2014 22:02:00)
I read most of the time on my iPod touch. I use kindle app the most because the book selection is great. I don't like carry kindle Device, it just a little heavy therefore it's convenient to use iPod with this app.
Love my kindle (by Jalyri on Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:45:00)
I have 2 kindles and now have the Kindle app for my iPad mini. I love my kindles. The app is great but still need some work. I would like to move the books that I have read to another place so I can see what is unread easily. Possibly a read and unread folder like the wish list. I would love to visit the Kindle store without having to go to the website. I would like to read a synopsis of the book I'll get a book and it could be a while I before I get to read it and would like to refresh myself why I got the book. Good app but still needs work.
Read My Books on any Device (by Wendy Hannah on Tue, 09 Dec 2014 23:06:00)
I absolutely love this app. I can access any of my books at any time on any device. It's as if I'm carrying a full bookcase with me at all times without all the weight.. :-)
Why need an account? (by Bibblob on Sun, 30 Nov 2014 18:16:00)
I tried to get the app but it wouldn't let me! It said I HAD to have an amazon account so I made two. Neither worked! It said they were invalid or didn't Exist! I really want it but I can't I wish I didn't have to have an account
Would love popular highlights to be optional (by Sdot1996 on Mon, 08 Dec 2014 06:27:00)
So remember in college when you got used textbooks and they were highlighted to hell? Useful for boring material you're not particularly interested in. Annoying as hell when you're reading for pleasure..
Needs a scroll function (by jbeuhler on Mon, 08 Dec 2014 03:03:00)
One of the great things about reading on an iPad is controlling the position of the page, so you don't have strain to look to the very bottom of the page or lift the iPad. Why no scroll function. Grave oversight. I'll only buy from Kindle if it's not on iTunes. Fix soon
Can't open .mobi file? (by Cat.mom on Mon, 08 Dec 2014 02:02:00)
I bought a book that included a digital download, and selected the Kindle format since I have Kindle apps on all my devices. I got the file onto my iPad, but it only shows the first two pages. Everything else is blank. I thought it was a transmission problem or corrupted file, but I got it to work on the Kindle app on my galaxy tab on the first try. I've rebooted and the problem persists.
Searching within a book - suggested improvement (by Opentable user on Mon, 08 Dec 2014 00:33:00)
Currently, the app provides the ability to search on a word, by pressing/highlighting it, and the app brings up the definition, Wikipedia link and X-Ray. All good. BUT, the general "search" function isn't included in these options. It should be. Not everything is captured by X-Ray. So, to search the book for the occurrence(s) of a word that isn't captured in X-Ray requires the reader to perform a separate search. Please include the general ("spyglass") search as one of the available options when the user highlights a word.
Could be so much better with just a little work!! (by Theswo on Sun, 07 Dec 2014 22:45:00)
I use this App all the time, and i can read my books just fine. But one ONLY way to manage the books on this app well is to go online. The ONLY thing the app lets me do, is 'sort' the titles. I want to know what I have read...And not read. I want to read what the book is about...without going to the internet!! Please work on this app!!! It really is pretty bad!!
Horrible app (by Virgo child on Sun, 07 Dec 2014 09:47:00)
It's crazy I recently upgraded to a iPad and I downloaded the kindle app and it doesn't allow me to access the kindle store to buy more books. You really need to fix this problem.
Awesome!! (by CA4TE on Sun, 07 Dec 2014 05:47:00)
This is by far my most used app. I can read anything anywhere. It's great I literally never close this app. My favorite feature is the collections because i can just go to one and find my books in the order I want them! Best app ever!!
A little annoyed (by Kbaze on Sat, 06 Dec 2014 17:28:00)
So I like this app but I'm starting to get annoyed when I switch from iPhone to iPad and it tells me that I'm synced at the furthest read location...when in fact I'm not-a good 30pages ahead- please fix this it used to work perfectly but now it's annoying as piss.
Kindle for my iPad/iPod. (by Basard77 on Sat, 06 Dec 2014 00:13:00)
I love the idea of having an app for it, and I have choice to read my books from any devices. Nice!
Broken (by iSteeeve on Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:38:00)
Works great! Transfers even samples to new devices. Many screen options. Handled PDFs. Now where is this kindle today widget for the notification screen? It is nowhere to be seen!
CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT IT!!! (by Pastor Cheryl on Fri, 05 Dec 2014 10:01:00)
Kindle is like my next breath, I read it, use it daily, do homework, church work everything with my kindle. Listen to music read my bible do my sermons. It is vitally important to me!
Great reading (by Dirnisw1 on Thu, 04 Dec 2014 23:36:00)
Great experience. Nice graphics and easy accessibility to books
Dictionary is a separate download. Why? (by anarchyx34 on Thu, 04 Dec 2014 17:54:00)
Why do I need to download a dictionary when iOS has a perfectly good one built in?
Swiss Army knife of reading (by Sponge 19780 on Thu, 04 Dec 2014 16:06:00)
I have read several books on Kindle.'s I read them on my iPad. The downside is that sometimes my arm goes to sleep. Also I don't believe I can copy parts of a book to a document
It's okay (by Sarah Brix on Thu, 04 Dec 2014 11:32:00)
For whatever reason the sync feature hasn't been great since the last couple updates. It rarely goes to the most recent page when I switch from my iPhone to iPad. So I have to search for the page I stopped on.
Used to be great. Now it won't let me log in (by Chase E on Thu, 04 Dec 2014 05:06:00)
I've been a kindle user for a while now. With the latest updates under iOS 8, it will not let me log in. It always says my email/password combo doesn't exist, even though it does. Very disappointed. Please fix!?
Pretty, but limited (by jakup24 on Wed, 03 Dec 2014 09:16:00)
Why isn't there the ability to download content from within the app? Instead I have to switch programs or devices to access the Amazon store. I'm not going to purchase Amazon hardware simply for this functionality.
Books from device. (by Fausron on Tue, 02 Dec 2014 23:51:00)
It's an app I'm about to use more often because all the books I have from my kindle I can read them from this device as well.
Virtual Library (by Arlene Pimentel on Tue, 02 Dec 2014 08:53:00)
It is great to have your library with you all the time . It is easy to use n read.
love kindle (by kmam on Mon, 01 Dec 2014 02:50:00)
lots of ebook to choose from.
Still Needs Immersion reading with real-time highlighting (by N/A 1234 on Mon, 01 Dec 2014 02:03:00)
When will Immersion reading **with real-time highlighting** be available like it is on the kindle? You've only implemented half of the immersion feature.. Why is that? Did someone write poor requirements for building the new functionality?
So easy and convenient! (by Mkepple on Sun, 30 Nov 2014 13:41:00)
I love having access to my books on every device! I have never had any glitches or bugs with any version of the apps. It always syncs to the page I am reading from another device so I don't have to hunt for where I left off on my iPad when I start reading the book on my iPhone and vice versa. Very user friendly and convenient.
Kindle (by Michael deC on Sun, 30 Nov 2014 13:17:00)
A convenient and useful App; not "the real thing" but isn't meant to be.
Good app, some glitches (by asus389 on Sat, 29 Nov 2014 20:31:00)
This app gets the job done. It allows you to sync and read your kindle books on your iPad. However it has lots of little bugs. Perhaps the most annoying of which is that if you switch away from the app, even temporarily, it re-loads your book every time you switch back. This despite having already downloaded the book, and having plenty of memory available (no other apps running). Also, you can't actually buy kindle books in the app, you have to navigate to the Amazon web site and then buy and "deliver" them, then switch back to the kindle app to download them.
WHAT! (by Alec317 on Fri, 28 Nov 2014 01:52:00)
I can't figure out how to actually buy books instead of just getting stupid samples
Love this app (by Zorrewe on Thu, 27 Nov 2014 02:17:00)
I get all the books in the world.. My Christmas is compete...
Great app... Just wish I could buy from the app (by Dgevanson on Wed, 26 Nov 2014 22:59:00)
I love my kindle app. I just wish I could make in app purchases. I love that all my apps sync up so that no matter what device I read on all my books are at the same page.
Won't Sync iPhone & iPad (by Fauxtographer on Wed, 26 Nov 2014 22:26:00)
Only gripe is it will not sync reading location between my iPhone 5s, iPad 2, & iPad Air 2 on IOS 8.1 even after deleting the apps and deauthorizing all devices, then adding apps back and reauthorizing the devices.
Still my favorite (by knitnana10 on Wed, 26 Nov 2014 21:37:00)
Love the Kindle app on my Kindle and iPad.
Used to be a decent app (by Elizabeth Brand on Wed, 26 Nov 2014 20:33:00)
Bought an Iphone 6 and can no longer listen to my Kindle books on my phone while working out or gardening. Called Amazon and got transferred to 5 people. Finally talked to Armando A. at Amazon customer service and was told "when there is a new device it takes some time to get some of the features included on the previous one. Specially on this one, that is a shortcut." This should be a basic feature of the application.
Amazon Account (by Hook'em 92 on Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:29:00)
I don't have an Amazon account but you need it. So unless you don't have an A account. DONT GET THIS APP
😜cupcake (by Cupcake Talaga on Tue, 25 Nov 2014 23:33:00)
Horrible does not work. Need to have a kindle account.😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
No page numbers? (by tea2001 on Tue, 25 Nov 2014 21:52:00)
What's with this app that doesn't allow you to view the page numbers of the book you're reading? Just some percent of the book you've finished with the remaining a out to go. I realize that the numbering would change depending on the size of the font used but iBook handles it quite nicely. To bad I got several mobi formatted items given to me and Stanza, the application I used to use to convert them doesn't work anymore. Yet another Amazon mess up.
Samples (by LSivs on Tue, 25 Nov 2014 20:35:00)
I'm not sure if this is just for me but I only get samples. I just got the app so I'm not sure if samples are the whole books or not.
worse, not better (by free-nickname on Sat, 15 Nov 2014 03:15:00)
app used to work well but recent releases no longer track correctly the last location read after you close the app. Instead it takes you to the start of the chapter, which means you have to flip pages to find where you were. Or, I suppose, have to bookmark the page before closing the app. Why -was this supposed to be an improvement ?
Used to love, but terrible after update! (by Luvlucy23 on Tue, 25 Nov 2014 15:17:00)
I have been using this app for years, 1st on iPod now iPad and iPhone. I love the changes such as collections and reading time, however there is now a HUGE issue that is making it so frustrating to use. Every time I close the app, or even if my ipad just goes to sleep, the app jumps to a different page, usually far ahead from where I am reading. I have even tried bookmarking my last page before I leave the app, but it seems like it is bookmarking the location number and that seems to change. I thought it might be an issue with rotation, but I have kept the same rotation and it still does it. It seems that the location number keeps changing. Very frustrating! Please fix! If not for that issue, app would be 5 stars.
Problem (by Carol Aldrich on Mon, 24 Nov 2014 21:15:00)
When I open the app, it goes back over 70 pages or forward the same amount. This is very frustrating having to find your place every time!
Love it!!! (by Redgreenyellow1963 on Mon, 24 Nov 2014 12:16:00)
Great for reading!!!!
kids version (by Awioa on Mon, 24 Nov 2014 02:36:00)
I would love to see a kids kindle reader app, so they do not have to scroll through all my books to get to their books
Great app (by Pwgame on Sun, 23 Nov 2014 19:43:00)
Works better than my actual Kindle. Easy to use
New version not working! (by andrewabony1 on Sun, 23 Nov 2014 19:22:00)
Keeps crashing seconds into app open:(
GLITCHY (by Wemis9 on Sat, 22 Nov 2014 23:49:00)
This app is glitchy on IPad Air 2... It won't let me highlight anything. And it randomly crashes...plz fix this..
My fav book app (by Kjp83 on Sat, 22 Nov 2014 23:20:00)
Love the app especially in the cloud so I can start off on my phone vs iPad and back again. Don't like the expired library books sticking around in my library. wish they would go away earlier.
Lost samples (by Bemocha533 on Sat, 22 Nov 2014 20:02:00)
I lost all my samples in iOS upgrade! Why would Amazon offer free samples and then not make sure they are still there in their own app? Very disappointing.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 101th to 150th
What happened (by Olsonfamily7 on Sat, 22 Nov 2014 02:04:00)
With the new update I can't get to the store. What's the point of having an app if I have to go online to buy the book anyways. Is this just me. Would have 4.5 stars otherwise.
Big Step Back (by veryWest on Sat, 22 Nov 2014 01:14:00)
Why did Amazon downgrade Kindle app for iPad? What happen to the Very Nice animated page flip? Was it because it made your Fire & PaperWhite look bad? Answer up. I'm waiting.
Love it!!! (by Catowtf@&$ on Fri, 21 Nov 2014 13:18:00)
It's basically the same as IBooks, except that you do your shopping on Amazon which is sooo much nicer than the iBook store.
Keeps freezing up (by LaneGrem on Fri, 21 Nov 2014 02:52:00)
Not sure if it's because of the latest IOS updates, but my Kindle app keeps freezing up. You can't turn the pages. It happens several times while reading. During the timeframe of 2 hours, it's frozen up 3 times. The only way to get it to respond again, is to shut down the app completely then restart it. Very frustrating. I hope the kinks are worked out soon.
Kindle App (by Honeyrose77 on Fri, 21 Nov 2014 01:04:00)
I thoroughly enjoy this app and being able read books on my iPad while saving trees at the same time. Win-win situation.
App has promise (by Mike276437832 on Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:35:00)
Amazon finally upgraded their kindle app from their previous prehistoric version. The last version was bland and had little to no user interaction. This app needs work, debugging, and cleaning up. It has a lot of promise, I give it 3.5/5 stars.
Kindle is fantastic (by GrannB on Thu, 20 Nov 2014 02:50:00)
I have been a very satisfied user of Kindle for over three years. I love the ease of use and the fantastic selection of books plus the prices are very reasonable! I strongly recommend Kindle books to all readers!
Productive (by 19zack on Wed, 19 Nov 2014 22:48:00)
I would suggest to add some cloud drive to the app for pdf file viewing.
Buggy (by a guy who reviews stuff on Wed, 19 Nov 2014 16:11:00)
Lots of books do not even have page numbers, which is just plain stupid. Also there is a bug that only lets you go back one sentence at a time when flipping backwards. Get your app together before I switch to iBooks.
worse, not better (by free-nickname on Sat, 15 Nov 2014 03:15:00)
app used to work well but recent releases no longer track correctly the last location read after you close the app. Instead it takes you to the start of the chapter, which means you have to flip pages to find where you were.

Great, but i can think of something to improve. (by Kaleb Blechle on Wed, 19 Nov 2014 00:03:00)
I would like it alot more if there were two places where your books could go. One for books that you haven't read yet, and another for books that you have finished reading. It would make sorting them much easier. That way we could know what books we haven't gotten to read, and the ones we have read.
Love love love this app (by AngieShuey on Tue, 18 Nov 2014 19:58:00)
I love this app!! The only thing is I wish there was a way to put my books into categories...or different folders like a favorites, series, great read, ok, awful don't read again!!! Id like to have a way to organize all of my books that I have!!! Thanks!!!
Almost good. (by Blayzeee on Tue, 18 Nov 2014 18:44:00)
The good: will sync page location and notes with other devices, can highlight, make notes The bad and the ugly: frequent app crashes when connected to wifi, sometimes books will not show up in any library. Boo! Please fix!
Love to Read (by Blratliff on Tue, 18 Nov 2014 02:41:00)
I like the app. I only wish it had a scrolling view option like iBooks.
Page turning lags (by NikkiNikki22 on Tue, 18 Nov 2014 02:21:00)
UPDATE (11-17-14): Still in need for a smoother page turning feature! The previous version was just fine! How much longer until this is fixed? Back to iBooks until this is fixed!!!! Original: This used to be perfect now when I turn the page it hangs there then turns choppy and lags. So disappointed as this is an app I use multiple times daily to read. Plz fix ASAP!
Poorly made for students (by Underdog114 on Mon, 17 Nov 2014 23:47:00)
It is impossible to click on foot notes, and highlighting specific words or phrases is nearly impossible without the menu appearing, or accidentally flipping the page.
LOVE this app!! (by Crystal Howard on Mon, 17 Nov 2014 16:47:00)
Love the dictionary feature. Love the ability to take notes while I'm reading. Love a backlit screen.
Scrolling Option? (by PlayerofFuBball on Mon, 17 Nov 2014 15:58:00)
Instead of page flipping?
Good companion app. (by Cle0fus on Mon, 17 Nov 2014 00:33:00)
Really like the app. Wish that it would synch with last read page on my Kindle more easily.
Keeps Getting a Better (by Toothius on Sun, 16 Nov 2014 22:20:00)
What once was a stripped app that only complimented a real Kindle device is now the best reading app. With the edition of the bilingual dictionary (took long enough) and the seamless integration of Audible content, the app is nearly perfect. I am a Prime member so my only disappointment is that I can't use the Kindle Owners' Library. Hope to see that soon. Otherwise, I love the Kindle app!
KINDLE (by JJD Sr. on Sun, 16 Nov 2014 13:50:00)

Works for me. (by Kanagawa Ken on Sun, 16 Nov 2014 11:33:00)
Emulates my Kindle perfectly. PC, iPod, iPad, Kindle... I read... everywhere, therefore I am... happy!
Frustrating (by Who stole the store? on Sun, 16 Nov 2014 11:20:00)
The most frustrating aspect of this app is that there is no way to go directly to the Kindle store from the app. How is that good marketing? Complicating the process to buy more ebooks via the app serves no purpose. Put the link back! Make it easy to search & shop for books and readers will buy more.
Where's the bookmarks? (by Doonzy on Sun, 16 Nov 2014 04:00:00)
I can't figure out how to use them!
LOVE THE HUGE MOBILE CAPACITY! (by Leslie1836 on Sat, 15 Nov 2014 13:37:00)
I love having 1,000 books at my fingertips wherever I am. It makes waiting time go much faster!
My Kindle (by JMM0305 on Sat, 15 Nov 2014 05:44:00)
Love my Kindle and my ibooks, but kindle books a lot easier to buy with the one click and seem to have a huge library. Amazon had done a superb job in this area.
the notes delay (by heye_ibp on Sat, 15 Nov 2014 04:52:00)
it took one second before notes show really show up. I do not remember this delay in previous versions. and better page turn, please. Kindle has the worst page turn in all my reading apps.
Battery Draining! (by frequent_traveler on Fri, 14 Nov 2014 12:02:00)
Since the last update my battery is draining so quickly. Fully charged and on airplane mode kindle drained the battery down to 14% on a 3 hour flight.
Advertised free reads (by Busy Mom45 on Fri, 14 Nov 2014 09:43:00)
Downloaded app from a teaser popup advertising free reads. Found out that no free reads exist. Life of pi was one of the free reads advertised. Let you get to about page 10 and then asked for money.
No Scrolling View (by ozz77 on Fri, 14 Nov 2014 01:57:00)
Until the Kindle app allows an continuous scrolling option (like the iBooks app) I am force to buy all my books through Apple. The turn page model was great in the beginning but it's become very clear to me the model for written consumption on the iPad is done so via scrolling vs page turns.
Aweful! (by Peter Gawle on Fri, 14 Nov 2014 01:51:00)
I found this app frustrating and virtually unusable, very disappointing!
Like it! (by Conanjose on Thu, 13 Nov 2014 23:29:00)
Not perfect but not too bad at all
Pop ups during samples 😡 (by Garbage update on Thu, 13 Nov 2014 05:59:00)
Really. I can't even finish reading a sample without you guys asking me if I want it. Isn't that why I'm reading the sample? But now that I get interrupted right before I'm going to finish and losing my reading experience makes me not want to buy from you. I find it rude and super annoying. Clearly I'm reading a sample to decide if I want to buy the book I don't need you reminding me of that like I'm a moron. Thank god for other apps. I hear the nook app has vastly improved later days kindle garbage.
Great Reading App (by Tiffany Fannin on Thu, 13 Nov 2014 02:30:00)
I would give this 5 stars, but highlighting text and putting bookmarks in place can be troublesome for taking notes for reading clubs or discussions.
All book pages are blank now. (by Wdyer23 on Thu, 13 Nov 2014 01:35:00)
Worked fine until last update. I have the iPhone 6 plus iOS 8.1 and I had several different kindle books I was reading that I purchased on this iPhone. Now all the pages are blank except one book. I have tried deleting the books and downloading them again, restarting my iPhone, and deleting the kindle app and downloading it again. Nothing works!
Love my Kindle for iPad,but... (by Quintank on Wed, 12 Nov 2014 07:04:00)
I sincerely wish you could buy right from the app like on my regular Kindles. Having to flip from one app to another to buy the next book in a series is annoying.
Decent App (by Hargate on Tue, 11 Nov 2014 21:18:00)
I find the UI a bit clunky and when two people are reading the same book, it keeps asking if I want to start reading from where the other reader is.
One step forward, one step back. (by M Long on Tue, 11 Nov 2014 18:54:00)
The good news is that Amazon updated the app to work on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The bad news is that once again they zapped the margin setting control. Worse, they decided that 1/8th inch margins were an acceptable default, resulting in a page crammed edge-to-edge and top-to-bottom with a solid uninviting mass of text. Come on guys, I mean really. Why remove features from your app? Give users back margin control (and don't take away line spacing, font sizes, or font selection when you do it.) Or at the VERY least, copy the margin spacing used in iBooks. It's not optimal, but at least they let the text breath a little.
Highlighting problems (by Sphynxbut on Tue, 11 Nov 2014 16:17:00)
While I do love having this app, I also like high listing in many of my books. Highlighting has become a lesson in futility. Every time I try, it doesn't work and takes multiple tries, touching switching pages, opening and closing the app, just to highlight, which should be quick and easy. Please fix this.
Selecting text is difficult (by 71925 on Tue, 11 Nov 2014 00:50:00)
In the Kindle app in IOS 8 on iPad Air 2, it's rather weirdly difficult to select text for highlighting or copying. Can be very frustrating.
Super app (by Vik in Tucson on Mon, 10 Nov 2014 22:58:00)
Wonderful way to connect my tablets, iPad and kindle. Love the conveniences the app provides.
Great app! (by Magnum-wt12343 on Mon, 10 Nov 2014 17:33:00)
Clean clear reader with great sharing and highlighting support. Love it!
Love the app (by vmars11 on Mon, 10 Nov 2014 15:43:00)
Never any problems for me.
Awesome app (by Tunediva on Mon, 10 Nov 2014 13:25:00)
I love reading and this app made it so I don't have to have a separate reading device. The only thing I wish they would add is a way to separate the books I have read from the ones I haven't. I would also like to be able to group the books in reading order.
Works great (by Runwithendurance on Mon, 10 Nov 2014 03:24:00)
This app works great for me....no problems and stores books I have on hold waiting to read....
Doesn't open book on iPhone 6 (by Time is Priceless on Sun, 09 Nov 2014 20:52:00)
I rented a book with Kindle and it works fine with a nook tablet I have. But it does not open on my iPhone 6 after installing the app. This app claims that is optimized for iPhones too. Apparently not for the iPhone 6. Please update your app!!
What's happening with syncing? (by TLTJAX on Sun, 09 Nov 2014 15:25:00)
I seem to be losing my place whin I set the sleep timer. It goes back to the place I set the timer. Annoying. Otherwise it's a fantastic app!
Superb (by Spindriftt on Sun, 09 Nov 2014 11:45:00)
A great way to always get an interesting book the minute you hear about it!
It's great, but... (by ♠Jen on Sun, 09 Nov 2014 04:11:00)
I need to see page numbers!! I loved the Kindle app on my iPhone 4s, and it's even better on my iPhone 6 with the bigger screen, but since the newest update I've yet to read a book that has page numbers. All they have are the locations. This is useless information! I want to know what page I'm on. You lose 2 stars for having location instead of page numbers - it's seriously that annoying. Please fix this and I'll give you 5 stars.
Recent crashes (by Haili!! on Sun, 09 Nov 2014 03:42:00)
I loved this app in the past!!! Recently, however, there have been crashes every time I try to open a book. I have tried opening multiple books (thinking it was the one) but they all lead to a crash. Please fix it
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 151th to 200th
Great!!!!!! (by Vrscawa on Sat, 08 Nov 2014 13:21:00)
I use the Kindle app exclusively for reading books. I have been using it almost since the original release date. Like it...use it...has more options than a paper book. With every iOS update, it gets a little clunky...animated page turning a little slow, the books take a few more micro seconds to load, etc... but eventually they get it smoothed out (Hate the iOS 8.x update) The app is great, iOS 8 needs some tweeks. Love the reviewers who haven't paid a dime for this app but "want this..." "That part needs to be improved" "1 star because they didn't taylor it for ME"

This is hands down my favorite way to read. Everything works well.
Not able to select text with iPad Air (by bwlnc on Fri, 07 Nov 2014 17:44:00)
I upgraded to iPad Air 2 and was surprised that I could not select text for highlighting for many of my Kindle books. I have no problem with my iPad 4 in selecting text with the same books. After resetting, I may highlight once or twice before the problem with selecting text would happen again. Amazon support tried to assist but no solution. I assume it is an incompatibility problem with Air 2 and the most recent app update. Another user commented about a similar problem.
Easy to use between devices! (by cubgirl on Fri, 07 Nov 2014 17:01:00)
Books are easy to download and read on all my devices. It's also easy to find inexpensive and even FREE books on Amazon and some other sites that can be loaded into my Kindle app.

Never a problem downloading, easy to keep track of where I am and easy to manage with "Manage my Kindle". I have only one complaint; I can't find a way to archive a book--only to delete it.
Eyeball Josh (by Bec3321 on Thu, 06 Nov 2014 11:39:00)
Enjoy the app very much, so much easier to use than the apple reader. The ease of using collections could be strengthened, but other than that very satisfied .
Indespensible if you have bad eyesight (by Hudson view on Thu, 06 Nov 2014 05:00:00)
I have macular degeneration and use my Kindle all the time. For books with illustrations it's better to use this app on an iPad because you can easily enlarge drawings, charts, amd photos and of course they are also in color. One star is missing to allow for impyovements.
Excellent (by MonkeyRatt on Thu, 06 Nov 2014 02:13:00)
This is an excellent app. It works very well an is easy to use. It keeps my book synced between devices and between the book and audio book so I can go from reading to listening while I drive flawlessly.
Kindle App (by hotcoder on Thu, 06 Nov 2014 02:02:00)
Love it. Have a Kindle Fire, too, and this app on my iPad keeps track of my last read page on the Kindle.
Page turning lags (by NikkiNikki22 on Thu, 06 Nov 2014 01:49:00)
This used to be perfect now when I turn the page it hangs there then turns choppy and lags. So disappointed as this is an app I use multiple times daily to read. Plz fix ASAP!
Love it (by Cinniuint on Wed, 05 Nov 2014 18:50:00)
I don't try to do anything fancy. I just read. Across two iPhones and a Kindle. Tracks where I am at in each book between devices, searches easily enough, what more could I want? Reading other reviews, apparently a lot, but I am happy.

Awesome for all reading. Have on all iPads and it keeps track on each one, no matter which one I use. Would love an easier way to remove books I have read.
Great app (by My_Ipod on Wed, 05 Nov 2014 01:40:00)
Amazon finally put its ego aside & came up with a great iphone app. I'm hoping it launched apps for other platforms too, since it'll only drive traffic to its website..

Kindle (by Bwoodby on Tue, 04 Nov 2014 16:27:00)
I really like the collections feature, but I wish there was a currently reading feature separate from the all books tab that would immediately update and include like ten books or something, that way readers don't have to go through all of their books to find what they were recently reading. Also, it would be more convenient if the kindle store could be accessed through the app instead of having to go to the web page on your browser.
Love it! (by stefanieRibarra on Tue, 04 Nov 2014 14:19:00)
Just wish we could access the kindle store from the app and purchase ebooks like we do on a kindle.

Just one thing (by stitcher3 on Tue, 04 Nov 2014 12:25:00)
Love the app. Especially option of picking up reading same book across devices at a different spot. However, it's very frustrating that book has to reload every time I leave the app, even for a second. I don't know if anything can be done about this, but five stars for sure if you can!

Skeptics Everywhere (by Jaydini on Mon, 03 Nov 2014 14:51:00)
I can't tell you how much I love my Kindle App! It's on all my "I" devices and I use it everyday. People (skeptics) tell me they can't read on a device as small as an iPhone 5S and I say "give it a try". It is perfect for reading in bed. Those who won't try it ..... Well, that is their loss.
I really like the app. (by REDCALIFORNIA on Mon, 03 Nov 2014 00:17:00)
I really like this app. Very easy to download your books. Syncs both to and from my kindle. No problems with the app. Nice that I only have to take my iPad when I travel.
Yep! Yep! Sure do! Yes siree! (by einexile on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 18:55:00)
Having these big dumb checkmarks everywhere, like we're using some ridiculous GTD app for on-the-go office fodder, makes me feel like some kind of an imbecile. How would you like to have a checkmark next to every app on your phone? It makes sense in cloud view, but there's no need to open that for more than a few seconds at a time. In device view, every single book has this death grey checkmark, and also a grey bookmark with a percentage on it, like an achievement tracker for books. It spoils the look of the library screen, and it insults the reader with assumptions about his or her intentions, values, and state of mind.
Great app (by snookii013 on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 18:35:00)

Great app only 1 flaw (by Charg5 on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 14:08:00)
Great app for reading Kindle Books, only has one flaw and that is I wish it would give you the reading time to end of chapter like the Kindle Readers do.
Perfect (by Sturgis in Rincon on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 13:35:00)

Very convenient (by Ummmmm this is my nickname on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 10:36:00)
I really like the ability to read anywhere at anytime. If I forgot my kindle or if it's just not convenient to bring my kindle along, it's nice to have the app.
Great app (by Miss Buffy on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 07:39:00)
I have never had a problem with it. Enjoy having it on my phone where I can read whatever I want, whenever I want.
Kindle is great! (by Crittersmith on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 05:28:00)

So very useful (by JCOII on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 01:46:00)
I use the app across a few devices and like the versatility.
Love my Kindle app! (by Ms flgirl on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 01:26:00)

love it (by Metmachine on Sun, 02 Nov 2014 00:20:00)
syncing is great. love it. can pick up from where I left off.
Good app (by Markhartley on Sat, 01 Nov 2014 23:40:00)
I really like this app. I just wish it was a little easier to track exactly what I want between highlights, notes, etc. I know that there is a filter option, but I wish the filter would "remember" what was filtered until I decide to change it instead of resetting each time to filter nothing. Thanks for a good app; will rate 5 stars if filter is improved.
Tap near bottom of screen to get aA to adj font (by Robert Petty on Sat, 01 Nov 2014 18:14:00)
Looking good on my iPhone 6+. Have used it a lot on my iPad. Great there. Took me awhile to discover how to increase font size on iPhone. (Tap near bottom of screen) Of course, iPad kindle app is better, but iPhone 6+ with enlarged font is okay. Kindle asks if you want to synch with other devices -- nice feature for alternating devices.
Love it but you can't remove completed books (by TeenerBach on Sat, 01 Nov 2014 16:41:00)
I really like having this app on the Notification Center but you cannot remove books. I finished the last book (too 100%) and it is still on my list.
Convenient app (by Debmeistr2 on Sat, 01 Nov 2014 16:20:00)
While I own the Kindle Fire (full size), as well as the original kindle, I still do alot of reading on my Kindle app mostly because of the convenience. The text size can be adjusted so it doesn't harm my eyes. I would recommend this app for those always on the go who also like to do alot of reading!
Way cool (by afr3510 on Sat, 01 Nov 2014 12:32:00)
Was curious because I didn't have my kindle with me. Downloaded the app. Within 30 seconds my library was available and I was reading my book. Not sure if bookmarks are sync'd but it's no big deal.
It works (by bl.iphone on Sat, 01 Nov 2014 03:45:00)
It's ok, I mean it doesn't crash. It's very annoying when paragraphs move from one location on a page to another. This happens way too often when you go to the previous page, the return to your original page. You have to skim around to see where the text moved to. Ridiculous. Periodically, 3/4 of the content is missing, you have to page forward, then bak to get it to reappear. That doesn't happen nearly as often though.
Awesome! But! (by Ttappedout on Fri, 31 Oct 2014 22:46:00)
Could improve with ways to integrate your notes into g-drive or ms-office.... It would be nice if you could at least save your notes as a pdf.. Just a thought...😳 I Love Kindle and looking forward to more of what it offers.. 👊
Bug report (by Magnum-wt12343 on Fri, 31 Oct 2014 18:44:00)
I love the app in general but I've found in the current version running on iOS 8 that I can make one highlight and then I can't select text or make more highlights without completely restarting the app. Once the app is restarted I can make one more highlight and that's it. Please fix for 5 stars.
Does what it needs (by Capbley on Fri, 31 Oct 2014 18:18:00)
Does all I ask for it to do. Like being able to send other documents to read also.
Who needs a plain e-reader? (by Stephmhorn on Fri, 31 Oct 2014 11:06:00)
I love my Kindle App and it's usability with my family of Ixxx's. I have many devices and my wife and I keep a large library of books in the Kindle cloud to make life as simple for reading as the iPod did for music. We travel extensively and always have all the reading material we need in a light, shareable portable way. Love it. And we have a built in library in our home so going "e" was a big transition. I miss the smell of a well made and well printed hardcover and still add to our paper library but life marches on. I love a Grateful Dead concert but have to settle for the legacy left behind after Jerry died. The only constant is change and Kindle changed my life for the better. Thank you Jeff Bezos. Vision is a beautiful thing.
Great Reading App! (by Ronald Irwin on Thu, 30 Oct 2014 21:31:00)
I use ebooks to minimize cost and to use a format I like for reading ( built-in reading light, adjustable font and size, auto-bookmarking, etc.). I also use Apple's reader, but I like the lower cost of Kindle.
Can't buy book on app? (by UTdan on Thu, 30 Oct 2014 16:29:00)
Not really sure why you can't shop, preview and buy in the app. The iBook app seems better. I guess that was probably the plan. Used to like kindle a lot. Oh well.
Good app but a pain to get the books (by Jennifer Chapin on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 22:56:00)
I use the kindle app on my iPhone, but dislike having to purchase the books on the Amazon website before being able to download them. Not enough to stop using the app, but not as convenient for me as the apple bookstore. Having an Amazon giftcard ensures I put up with the extra hassle.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 201th to 250th
Kindle Review (by Megoldberg on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 20:24:00)
I saw some of the negative reviews, but as for me I love the app on my iPad! I rate it as one of my most used apps. 😊😁😜
Don't like update (by Busyb75 on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 16:33:00)
I don't like the new update. When your looking at a book you now have to go to a different page to read all the description. Also when you want to read all of a review it sends you to another page. It should automatically download a book that you just bought when you open your kindle app, instead you have to go to the iCloud and find the book then download it. It used to automatically do it. What's up with all the changes?? Why mess with a good thing and make it worse.
Works Great (by dallas_glacier on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 14:32:00)
Does exactly what it should, syncs well, downloads books and supports many reading options. What more do you need?
Should function more like iBook (by Fethun on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 13:52:00)
It'll be great to add copy and speak functions.
Good.. But (by ladyinpurple29 on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 12:57:00)
I love the app but when I sync from my iPad to iPhone it sometimes looses my place. It doesn't always sync to the correct location and if I don't have both together I waste time trying to figure out where I left off.
Seem to have an issue with Air 2 or IOS 8.1 (by Sfrule on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 06:57:00)
I used the Kindle on multiple iPad and never had any issue ... Especially like the immediate response on highlighting paragraph. However, I start to have issues on doing those highlights. The screen is no longer responsive when I try to highlight a section. It appears to be an issue with new iOS!
How do I buy books? (by Snooxorz on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 05:25:00)
I'm just writing this as someone who stumbled onto this app & just now opened it. How. Do. I. Buy. A. Book. Where is the store? I searched for Divergent, found it, touched it & it immediately downloads a sample. Ok. Great. How do I buy it? How do I browse for books? I give ONE star because if these things are possible it's super ultra not obvious. If it's not possible, why not..... :/ one star.
Good but... (by TLS33 on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 03:58:00)
I wish there was a scroll feature like iBooks.
Enjoying this app (by HoosiersinNJ on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 03:04:00)
Works fine for what I need.
Decent App (by Purplekross on Tue, 28 Oct 2014 17:25:00)
Why can't I purchase books from this app??
Kindle app iPhone (by Johnjstone on Tue, 28 Oct 2014 16:10:00)
App is great have read 35 books from Amazon and local library thru Tennessee reads works great
Overall good but could be better (by Sick at home on Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:47:00)
I love having all my books with me and certainly this app works well. I wish it would track pages and how many pages remained per chapter. Also I wish there were more ways to sort my books on the cloud so I could remember which ones I've read and which are waiting to be read. Otherwise all works well
Superb APP (by Tired 23 on Tue, 28 Oct 2014 08:56:00)
Have used it on all iPad models and have no difficulty switching between iPad and iPhone. Looking forward to using it on the iPhone6.
Love it but.... (by Jenn12;) on Tue, 28 Oct 2014 06:05:00)
Well continuing from the title...I love this kindle app but it has it's problem on the iPhone. For some reason when I buy my book, it won't automatically download in my book list like it use too a couple months back like let's say in December of 2012. I also wish that I was able to arrange my books from vampire, werewolf, contemporary, magic, mostly any romance genre you can think of. I don't know if the actual kindle can do that but I would really love it if the kindle app for the iPhone 4S can do it. Update: I am not liking this new update at all. It doesn't tell me the number of pages a book is. Call me OCD.. Whatever but I would actually like to know that the books I buy are worth it.
Love it (by Purppatti on Tue, 28 Oct 2014 03:49:00)
I love using Kindle, it's easy to read and take with me. Since I've been using kindle, I have not picked up a book.
So slow for iPad (by iBook is better on Tue, 28 Oct 2014 00:45:00)
Kindle is so slow for iPad and I need 1 min to open it, I hope they can solve this problem because my history book is by kindle. I don't like history and this problem make me hate history more.
Almost Perfect (by jonj99 on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 22:42:00)
I use this app to read everyday and it is nearly perfect. I just wish it came up immediately with my book and didn't have a few second delay while it loaded. It makes it a pain to use on my commute where I might read for five minutes and then need to lock my phone and then want to read again. The delay every time drives me nuts.
Needs more flexibility (by Lya Williams on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 20:25:00)
Love the app. I wish it would be universal. Between my iPhone and my iPad and my Mac. I don't like having to resave the same do on multiple devices. Overall the app does work.
Great e-reader replacement (by Retiredray2 on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 19:58:00)
Couldn't see spending more money for a nook or kindle when I already have an iPad but, this app gives me the best of both.
Love this app 😄 (by Sidra324 on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 19:23:00)
I can buy kindle books without buying a Kindle
Irritating bug introduced 10/27/14 (by Not an Apple Guy on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 15:41:00)
I've been happy with this app for years but as with all things involving programming eventually they grow in complexity until they outgrow the skills of those who have to support it. The latest update introduced a bug that loses the last few words of a chapter very frequently. If you page forward and back they appear.. It's irritating, but not fatal. Don't make me switch to nook!
Great App! (by Randa53 on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 13:41:00)
I can read on Kindle, iPad, iPhone, iPod, & iMac...Perfect!!!
Have to have Amazon accounts? (by Iceman 5050 on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 13:38:00)
When I first downloaded the app and login is that I need to do have a free Amazon account don't want to have to go through all that trouble
The best (by Gojukenbo on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 06:40:00)
Don't bother with any other reader app. Kindle can't be matched.
Pretty good app (by hgudd on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 04:21:00)
I only use this app to read on my iPad. I really like having the flexibility to use either device. I thought I read it was supposed to keep books in sync across devices - this does not work.
Kindle is Great (by Powells02 on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 03:19:00)
Works great. I travel all the time and couldn't live without it
Disappointed (by Patsy44 on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 02:06:00)
I am very disappointed in this app my daughter has the first gen. iPad and she can not use this app because she doesn't have iOS 6 or later. You should re release this app for the people that have the older iOS so that way they can enjoy the kindle app as well. She like to read as much as I do. So if you could please release this app for the older version so she can download books that she is interested in. And I am pretty sure that other people would agree with me on this. So if you could please think of the people that still use the older IOS so they can enjoy this app as well. PLEASE
Next! (by Chubby Girl-1 on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 01:30:00)
I really enjoy using the Kindle App on my Apple iPad. So much so, that I'm considering purchasing a Kindle.
Fantastic App (by Lacey Lane on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 00:51:00)
Because of my Kindle app, I could checkout ebooks from my library while I was in Colorado for 3 months. Neat! Works great for me and I have had NO problems whatsoever. Love it!
Great app, add clock (by Punks257 on Mon, 27 Oct 2014 00:49:00)
I love this app. Both app and book prices better than iBooks. And you can read overdrive library books on it. I wish it had a clock at top of the page though.
Nearly there (by Kit'n'Kaboodle on Sun, 26 Oct 2014 22:44:00)
Lacks ability to quickly go back to where you were but otherwise a great app.
Good but get rid of screen blanking on refresh (by JosephWit on Sun, 26 Oct 2014 20:07:00)
I use Kindle for iPad and iPhone all the time - that speaks for itself. But it annoys me that every time I open the app, I see my page for an instant, then the screen blanks while the app checks for updates or furthest page across devices. The page should remain visible during the check, and if it is already displaying the furthest page, nothing should happen - like a real book. My biggest gripe!
Awesome (by 2qtanya on Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:57:00)
The Kindle is good it helps so many ways for kids in a call to every person in the world😇
Bad App (by Zaptrax on Sun, 26 Oct 2014 14:22:00)
The Kindle App is awful, especially in comparison to Apple's iBooks App. You can't buy books in the Kindle Apps, you have to use Safari to shop and then the book may or may not show up on your iPad or iPhone. When you get a new iPad books disappear from the device and you can't get them back. If you need help it is almost impossible to get it from Amazon
Just needs file folders! (by Pandagrey on Sun, 26 Oct 2014 03:45:00)
I love reading books on my kindle for iPad better than on iBooks except for one thing...finding the book. On iBooks there are category file folders that I can name and file books under, but on the kindle for iPad I don't have that option. I'm a teacher and I also read so there are a ton of books I have to scroll through in order to find the book I want.
Needs an option to turn off highlighting!!! (by Rynavsma on Sun, 26 Oct 2014 01:57:00)
For the love of all that is holy PLEASE add an option so I can turn off highlighting! I don't need it nor do I want it. I can't be alone in this. I even tried calling, shocking India responded "I'm so sorry to hear that but there is nothing to turn if off". How difficult would it be?? Seriously?!
My relationship with Kindle continues to grow as does the Kindle App. (by Beachguy from Boca on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 22:41:00)
I've become addicted to Kindle during the past five years. After my retirement from the world of science in the development of new pharmaceuticals, I dove head first into fiction and an occasional non-fiction diversion. The evolving Kindle App has made my reading so much more enjoyable.
I love kindle/apps (by Catmatte on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 20:36:00)
I have been a kindle customer from the very beginning. I love having the apps on iPhone, iPad, laptops, and desktops. I love having my Bible available anytime I want to read it during the day. Also being able to make notes with any book I am reading.
Handy at an Appointment!!! (by kelworm on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 18:41:00)
Having the KINDLE APP on my iPhone is so very wonderful while waiting and waiting for the Doctor!! No more waiting room magazines/pamphlets with who knows how much bacteria upon them!!! Thanks to the Kindle App,it seems like the wait is quick! Any place where waiting to be called is a much better experience when I have my iPhone or Kindle Fire to help the time pass!! I've even done research for my Daughter's Term Papers while waiting!! People who have iPhones and no Kindle App-have no idea what they're missing!!!!!!😋
Kindle app great in the evening... (by gin8gin on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 18:24:00)
I really love handling paper books but find reading at night hard until I downloaded this app. I continue to have a real book as well as a book on my Kindle app which I read at night. The best of both reading worlds!
Excellent! (by Radioboy39 on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 17:45:00)
The app for iPad and the various Kindles are excellent to own and use.
Built-in browser is a deal breaker (by GC_Books on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 17:22:00)
The app has a built-in browser, which makes it useless for anyone trying to restrict web browsing to a certain app. In other words, it is totally unsafe for kids or even adults who want to be protected. Put a password restriction on the built-in browser and I'll give it 5 stars!
Good app (by whozethere on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 17:02:00)
Org Review: 10/25/2014. I actually use my Kindle App on my iPhone over my Kindle Fire. I try to get non Amazon books compatible with this app. Pro: whisper sync between devices, highlight & bookmark. Con: cannot toggle between open books.
Great but could be better (by Nancy Campbell on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 15:04:00)
Love reading format, but it would be nice to be able to file my books in folders or something solar instead of one big list.
Nor impressed (by Lplacid04 on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 15:00:00)
Don't like that you can't just tap the store and buy stuff. You actually have to leave app and go to Amazon to buy your books then back to kindle app to read. All my other phones the store was right there. Very annoying.
Kindle App (by Donna's Reveiw on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 13:58:00)
I enjoy the Kindle App being on my phone. I love having my books available where ever I am. I love the convenience of my books always being with me.
Very good (by Franlove on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 13:22:00)
I am happy with the app. I have not used all the features, but enjoy clicking it and being right where I left off.
Kindle is great (by Bigjohn j on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 04:28:00)
I'm impressed with how well it works. Great job on this app.
Kindle App (by Erica Davis on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 03:20:00)
I love this app. I can read my books whenever I want. I can switch from device to device and never lose my page.
Enjoy the kindle app on IPad (by leilib on Sat, 25 Oct 2014 02:17:00)
It's been so nice having the application with IPad that I can rely on for reading.

Decent, functional app (by wenelt on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 23:44:00)
Works consistently. Where available, it shows time left on chapter and in book which is helpful. Wish it had profiles to manage family member use in non-Kindle devices.
Fantastic (by Sherlock Holmes the fifteenth on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 23:18:00)
This app is awesome for downloading and reading my books
Love the Kindle app (by Timothy McDonald on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 19:26:00)
I've used the kindle app on my iPad for years. I've never had any negative issues. Love the graphics, clarity, ease in getting around. I rarely read "real" books any more. Hooked!
Love it (by Azzabar on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 19:12:00)
Works for me everytime b
does the job for me (by Bleeber on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 18:36:00)
Havent checked out the sync problems but it has done the basic job. I still consider getting a Kindle book as more straightforward but will see after I upgrade to an iPhone 6+.
Multi use! & free! (by Gg killer on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 15:38:00)
The app is fine& free, something that's really cool about is is that if you find a document & sometimes picture of the internet of in an email, if you open it in kindle, it saves it to your phone. I like the portability, but think it should have it's own brightness settings which should allow the phone to go dimmer and it would be nice 2 b able2 buy books from the app.
4/5 Incredible App! (by conan curry on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 12:49:00)
I love using the Kindle app. In addition to having access to all my digital books wherever I go, I value the highlighting and search features, which are not readily available for paperbacks. My only complaint is that you can't buy digital books directly from the app, which makes no sense. The Amazon app suffers from the same problem. Please add this feature.
Don't need a Kindle (by Oliviaodiesmom on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 12:30:00)
Great how you don't need a kindle to have all your favorite books from your kindle library.
Great App for iPad Users (by Gulfgeezer on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 05:35:00)
Love this app and the ability to read books on my iPad and iPhone. There are some inconsistencies between devices re the last page read but they are not significant enough to affect my rating.
Need to buy from app (by Cheer1815 on Fri, 24 Oct 2014 01:27:00)
I want to be able to buy books within the app, most of the time I finish a book when I'm on vacation and don't have my kindle then I'm without a book unless I go to a store and buy one but I'd rather just read on my phone please let us be able to buy from the app
Love this app!!! (by Mrspepper11 on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 20:58:00)
I will give it a 5 because I absolutely love the app and I love it that I can have it on several devices between my iPad, iPhone and share my books with my family on their devices! This is an awesome app for us because we homeschool and it saves us a lot of time and money. Big thumbs up! I only wish that I could have more books at a time with the unlimited. But over all love this app!
Kindle app (by Gamer_Ice_9 on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 19:21:00)
Great app. I use it all the time for reading both books and PDFs. Recommend for sure. 🎃
Love reading across my devices! (by Mande D on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 19:03:00)
This app makes it so handy to have my books accessible no matter where I am. Sure the interface can be a bit clunky. But overall, I love it!
Great app (by Msripp on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 19:03:00)
I love reading on the Kindle app. Glad to be able to use on iPad without having to buy a "kindle". Works great.
Love my kindle! (by Dniles77 on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 18:33:00)
I was a die hard paperback fan for several years... But after I received the kindle as a gift now I can't do with out it. I can have my books at my fingertips... On my phone, iPad, kindle, laptop... Where ever I need it. I really love the freedom!
Terrible app (by scotty321 on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 17:59:00)
Terrible app. It doesn't keep track of which samples you have downloaded, so if you upgrade to a brand new iPhone or iPad, this app LOSES ALL OF YOUR SAMPLE BOOKS!! Also, this app is filled with bugs. Every time you switch back to this app from another app, your Kindle book goes COMPLETELY BLANK for a few seconds before it shows you your book again. This did NOT happen in previous versions! Also, if you're trying to sync between an iPhone and an an iPad, you're going to be disappointed because the #1 problem with the Kindle app is that when you synchronize from within a book, it ONLY SYNCHRONIZES the furthest location. It DOESN'T synchronize any of your bookmarks, notes, nor highlights! What good does it do to press the sync button from within a book if it's not actually going to sync everything! Totally annoying, because it forces the reader to LEAVE THE BOOK and go back to the main menu EVERY TIME they want to do a REAL SYNC. This makes no sense, and it burdens the reader unnecessarily.
Good App. (by JA59 on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 17:34:00)
Kindle store is very good. App works well across iOS devices, adding collections has helped. Still, if you have a lot of books, the organization and presentation could be improved.
Kindle (by Major BCC on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 16:19:00)
It's very simple. . .my wife and love our Kindle and the Kindle app. Anywhere we go we have a book to read, whether it's on our iPhone, iPad, or computer. We love them!!!
Could be better (by Mawtoo on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 16:01:00)
This app is ok but not as good as iBooks. Would be nice to print the recipes from the cookbooks I bought. Would not have bought them if I had known.
Great way to have reading with you anywhere (by Wordfinder13 on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 15:39:00)
Love being able to read across multiple devices.
Page numbers (by Xapod on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 15:39:00)
PLEASE, PLEASE put page numbers in your ebooks. Locations are next to useless since I don't relate to them. I see on you WEB forum I am not the only one who wants this. I can get the same books at Nook and others with page numbers, so I know it can be done. Thanks! Then you get five stars!
Great for reading, not as great for features (by NancyMN on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 12:41:00)
Pros: easy to customize for text size, brightness, color; dictionary feature; syncing between devices. Cons: bookmark is sometimes hard to use; getting to other features can sometimes be a challenge.
My favorite reading app (by cjbutter on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 05:44:00)
It's simple to use and works great.
Yessss (by Sneedlez on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 05:32:00)
This app is really really good and I love how all you need to do is sync your collections ⊂((・⊥・))⊃
Love the Kindle App. (by S.Smallwood on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 05:00:00)
I absolutely love the convenience the Kindle app affords. Love it's features and organization.
Not intuitive (by Rachacha08 on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 04:46:00)
I use this app on my iPhone and iPad. I love the organization of my books, and I would use this app a lot more if one thing were fixed: why can't I buy books while in the kindle app? I have to open my browser, log in to Amazon, search and buy my book, and only then will I have the book in the app. Searching for a book within the app is fine, but I can only download a sample and that doesn't make any sense to me. It would be logical if I had the option to click to buy the rest of the book at the end of the sample, but no such luck. This needs to be fixed ASAP.
Good improvements with one tiny issue (by dedm079 on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 02:33:00)
I've enjoyed the kindle app on iPad and iPhone for several years. I especially like the improvements made recently, including place holding dots on the scroll line at the bottom of the screen. One small issue. In night mode (i.e. Black background) any time you open a menu box or wish to enter a note the box is still white. Mso even with the black background turned on, every time I go to enter a note, the white box glares onto the screen lighting my entire room up! Seems like this should be a simple fix. I would love to see this.
So many updates and yet the one flaw is still not fixed. (by ReportJeff on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 02:13:00)
Why can't Kindle fix the most annoying flaw that separates it from iBooks? When you turn a page, you lose the clock and other screen info and you have to tap the page in order to make the surrounding info return. Between that and not having access to dim the screen in the proper way, that pretty much is the reason I don't use kindle.
It doesn't work (by GreenRibbonWarrior on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 00:44:00)
I keep getting an alert to remove the book from my device and then download again. That'd be all well and good except the app becomes unresponsive when I attempt to do that.
Kindle (by CTasha on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 20:32:00)
Great app! Have thousands of books on the go and ready and available when I need them!
Love it, but a few suggestions. (by StylinBaby on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 19:19:00)
* Would love the ability to sort or tag books so I don't have to scroll through my whole library looking for something. Seems like a pretty simple feature. * Highlighting is great, but more than 4 colors or the ability to underline instead of just highlight would be nice. Love that I can pull up and look at my highlights separate from the book. * A different way to signify a note in a book so it's more visible.
This has outdone iBook (by DocSmithUSMC on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 15:13:00)
It is obvious that Amazon wants there Kindle App to be useful and I find it far superior to both iBook and Nook. Specifically, the Kindle software is much more intuitive and just provides a very enjoyable reading experience. The other factor is price: Amazon beats Nook and iBook on both price and availability of titles. It doesn't crash and I have never lost a title. It a good App.
Kindle (by tom381 on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 11:31:00)
The kindle reading app is the best. I keep my books across all my computers and can jump into reading no matter where I am the best reading app.
Much better (by Rockman2840 on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:50:00)
I am really enjoying the new features and improvements. Copy text is great!
Great App but needs some improvement (by Ashokito on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:00:00)
Need to categorize or group books
Kindle (by YosemiJack on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 05:00:00)
I love having the Kindle available at leisure, while waiting at the doctor's appointments, etc. I always keep at least 2 new books available in case I finish mine while out.
E books! (by Spivester on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 03:29:00)
I've never tried the eBook thing till now, but I love the kindle app. Saves me money on books too!
Great app (by Coteto1 on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 03:20:00)
enjoy it very much. Thanks!
Would love additional tweaks (by Lacy Marie Zimmerman on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 03:14:00)
LOVE having my books on my phone and ipad thru the cloud. Wish it would allow me to delete from app directly instead of going thru website. Also would like to organize books by my 'collections' or 'shelves'. Then it would be 5stars!!
Good, BUT... (by No Habla Espagnol on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 02:51:00)
...ever since I downloaded the new OS, the Kindle App CRASHES EVERY SINGLE TIME I USE IT. I mean EVERY time. I'm reading a book, I swipe to answer a text, I swipe back to Kindle - wham. Down it goes, and then takes forever to restart and THEN it puts me back in the library, not even keeping track of what book I was reading. More waiting. Very frustrating. FIX THIS, PLEASE!
Love it! (by Hmmm.. Can't think of one on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 02:01:00)
I love having all my favorite books available at any time! Relatively easy to purchase, very few crashes, nice options for different lighting conditions. Works for me!
Great, and getting better (by ClrkBent on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:24:00)
I've had a kindle since the first version, and prefer it over anything else to read. When il reading for a few minutes to and from work on the train in the morning, though, this app keeps me immersed in my book without lugging the kindle around. On the larger screen of the iPhone 6, it's even better.
Great app! (by cerebro2k on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:22:00)
Great to read, highlight, take notes, it syncs with my iPhone and iPad, not only that but I believe amazon has a greater variety and better prices than the Apple Store, don't get me wrong I Looove apple but I love my money more. I do own books on both but I prefer the kindle app.
Love the Kindle app (by Young for my age on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:18:00)
Why buy another piece of equipment? The Kindle app does all I need. I really like it.
Awesome (by Susanemt on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:13:00)
I love love love books and now I can take them all everywhere, YES!
Love it! (by Dar1w on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 23:59:00)
Love being able to read anywhere at anytime!
...almost there. (by Lumfan on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 22:50:00)
While a really good E-reader it could use some refining. Less 'crashing/pauses', a 'snapshot' view of the synopsis of the book and a more unified view of the store & Libary. These changes would help a lot, thank you.
Love it! (by Nywxwitch on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 21:55:00)
I love the app. No problems at all!
Kindle app (by Soccer Deb on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 21:19:00)
I love having my books on my iPad! So much easier than remembering to take a physical book. It is just the best!😃
Love this app (by Pasta salad1234567891011 on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 21:04:00)
I really love the kindle app. I have it on all of my devices I just wish I really could move them around like I can the apps on my devices. I would also like to be able to group them into series. Another good idea would be an option to click on each book and read the description. I buy so many books and get them free that I forget what they are about.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 301th to 350th
Love it (by jjohnstonia on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 18:17:00)
Best reader app on the market. Love the page turn feature.
Kindle app for IPad (by CBCPastor on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 16:20:00)
I love the app! I use it everyday and I like being able to change the lighting whenever I need to. I like buying through Amazon and being able to carry my library whenever I go somewhere. I wish I could put my books into categories. This would save me some time when I am looking for certain books .
great app (by Navywife19 on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 15:54:00)
i love having the kindle app on my phone, it makes reading in bed easier and is great for those times you just can't bring your kindle with you. i don't love that you have to download each book that you want to read-but it is quick and easy to to do it. i love this app and i use it all the time
Only way to go (by GregSpeck on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 14:44:00)
Perfect with the IPad.. No longer use my dedicated Kindle..
Wonderful (by Teeana37 on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 07:38:00)
I love my kindle. I use both the phone version and the fire kindle version. I love to read books and do puzzles. With my phone, my books are more portable and I can read anywhere.
Great app (by 2 many tasks 2 little time on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 03:15:00)
Love my kindle and the app. Use it everyday.
More addictive than crack cocaine (by ebw78756 on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 03:11:00)
I read on my Kindle and my iPad and my iPhone and my iPod. There is always one of those devices with me, each one knows the last page I read and I can pick up where I left off with one swipe. If the Kindle App disappeared, I would have a very difficult adjustment.
awesome (by rmcbride77 on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 03:07:00)
I love books and getting used to reading on a device was hard at first but now I love it and I can carry all my favorite books with me on my phone and can read any time I get a chance.
Kindle (by trinasj on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 03:06:00)
Great app for reading but sometimes loses my place and bookmarks don't work so well.
Love my IPad Kindle (by Etta Grey on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 01:52:00)
I love to read. My Kindle makes it easy to pull books from Amazon and my statewide library. I just hope I don't run out of room! I like to reread favorite books, as well as getting new ones. I've quite a collection on my IPad, and am always looking for more that interest me.
Couldn't do without it (by GrassmannCA on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 01:44:00)
I have been using this app for several years and it keeps getting better. Couldn't do without it! CG
Terrific (by Jpizzad on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 01:37:00)
Must have app for a reader.
Love my Kindle (by 101Anny on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 23:22:00)
I just came from an overseas trip and there was no dull moment! My Kindle visited South America and was a great companion! Now I am in the process of waiting the arrival of the new one purchased. So many books available that I have about 3 started at the same time! You can read literature, novels, fiction, and at the same time, learn new ways to crochet. Very happy with Kindle!
This works great for me (by IMHO-85 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 21:57:00)
It's even better now that my iPhone and iPad can be sync'd and I can read for a while on either device. I don't use comments or bookmarks very often, so don't encounter some of the problems others have mentioned.
Very readable interface (by razoredger on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 21:51:00)
I use this app on my iPod. The interface is dry clear and the feature to import ebooks from other sources very useful
Love this app (by beingmrsbrown on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 21:36:00)
Love this app on my iPhone. My purchases are sent directly to my phone. Would be cute if the books look like they were stored on a bookshelf.
Sets the standard (by mtsofm1st on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 21:35:00)
I have always thought the Kindle App set the standard for other reading apps. Never really had any complaints. Far better than Amazon's cloud/downloading app.
Fantastic (by Racewalker2 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 21:13:00)
One fantastic app. My go to reading app.
Great App (by Mike 999999 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 19:52:00)
Excellent kindle app. very easy to use and love being able to carry my books around on my phone.
small and handy (by Guipit 45 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 19:32:00)
The smallest Kindle is really handy. Fits in large pocket, easy to read with its own backlight, simple to switch between books. I prefer to read Kindle rather than a hard or soft cover book because of the weight, built in light and ability to carry an entire library. Well worth its price!
Battery Drain! (by iGoodtimes on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 16:28:00)
Look it lets you read your Kindle eBooks. The problem here is that this application is terribly inefficient. It drains my device batteries faster than anything else. In iOS 8 we can see the battery usage information now, and I’m consistently seeing 71% - 80%. I did a test with a book series. I bought the first book for Kindle and read it over three nights, that’s all I did with the iPad, and at the end of the book I was at 8% battery. The second book i bought for iBooks and read it over 3 1/2 nights, again same situation, and my battery was at 53%. This is bad, and it keeps getting worse with every release.

Kindle App (by Ataylor500 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 14:32:00)
Great app. Sometimes the message about what page you are on in another device is a bit off, but otherwise it works well.
Help (by Iluvorange97 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:23:00)
Every time I download this app it will not show my books and I can log out of it either.
Love Kindle (by niecew on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 11:44:00)
I have whisper sync and I read my books on my kindle, my phone and tablet. Always syncs to the farthest page read. Lightweight and easy to hold or prop when you read,
Love my kindle (by GraceG23 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 10:48:00)
Love the Kindle app. I love the ability to take my library anywhere I go. I'm a readaholic, so that's important.
Kindle vs. iPad (by Jabezmurphy on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 06:15:00)
I still use my Kindle for my magazines and games. Reading books on the app is ok but easier on the Kindle. I have to do my purchases on the Kindle and then download to the iPad. Doesn't make sense.
Kindle apps 5 + stars (by Bmpr543 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 04:51:00)
I find it convent to have all my books available and need extra furniture to hold them. I've been satisfied with the quality of the content. I especially like my craft books and magazines available not on dusty shelves getting dog eared. I can take them all with me every time I leave the house just by slipping my kindle in my craft bag.
I love it but (by vonschwartzwalder on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 03:59:00)
I wish I had more control over my "shelves." I also have a kindle paper white 3G. It's supposed to connect to the internet to buy and/or download books, however, lately it often has trouble doing that if I'm not connected to wifi. I paid the extra for the 3G so I expect it to work.
Kindle app is a must have!! (by Jlynn4444 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 02:44:00)
I am a avid reader. I read multiple books a week and love that I don't have to carry my books around. I just need my phone and I am all set! I would recommend this app to anyone and everyone who loves to read.
I love the Kindle/Amazon system for my iPad!!! (by Delikins on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 02:37:00)
Significantly better than buying through Apple! I identify the genre I'd like to explore and then Kindle offers hundreds of options! In Apple, they screen availability of books by what THEY'D like to "feature" and then I have to dig through layers of structure to find topics and authors I'm interested in. I rarely buy books from Apple anymore. Also, when I purchase through Amazon/Kindle for books, there is no trouble uploading even huge amounts of data. It takes mere seconds. I love the Kindle approach.
Really like using this app. Works great (by Photobomb22 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 02:37:00)
Works great. Really enjoy using the app.
Kindle great reader (by njiedv123 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 02:16:00)

My kindle is great! No real complaints does exactly what I need it to do.
Outstanding device (by Deb iPh 5 Pet # on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 00:12:00)
The Kindle with Cloud services is amazing. You can easily browse for ekindle books on Amazon, purchase and then deliver the content wirelessly to your device or multiple devices. The Kindle app provides the option to read on any device and bookmarks your page. We purchased a Kindle for my husband who is not tech-savy and he loves it! He reads more books now due to easy access of titles and the convenience of using any device. You can search by genre, author,etc. it's amazing and no lugging books to the local grocery store. Kindle is a device that has moved technology forward!!
The best E-Reader System available (by Ralphw2548 on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 00:06:00)
I know, I'm prejudiced towards Mac's. But, Kindle works so well on both my iPhone and my iMac. It presents multiple fonts and text sizes, so old, tired eyes don't have to strain. It also allows for intuitive groupings as well as by title and author. The best out there!!!!
Love it! (by GrowlerNC on Mon, 20 Oct 2014 00:00:00)
Love my kindle app. Great for traveling!!
Excellent (by Nick Gransaull on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 23:54:00)
Access to my library anytime is great.
Good but! (by GGinNC on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 22:16:00)
It is a good app but, I have to leave it and either go to a Kindle or my computer to purchase a book! If I could purchase the books on my iPad instead of on my Kindle it would be great!
Great! (by Get U'r own nickname! on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 20:32:00)
Beats iBooks hands down!

Really enjoy the capability of access from iPad
Love this app! (by Kyleayy on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 18:21:00)
It's so convenient ! I don't have to carry around my kindle and a phone !
Perfect! (by Finicky 1 on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 18:09:00)
I'm not sure how I survived without my Kindle. It lets me read books constantly, even when I can't afford the price of a book, I can purchase a Kindle book for as little as 99 cents. I can carry it in my purse, so it's available no matter where I go. Love my Kindle!
Excellent eBook Reader (by Not a complainer but... on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 17:28:00)
I've used the Kindle app for years and now read all of my books electronically. Recent updates allow a footer option to show how much of the book is left. The footer is great because it isn't distracting, but provides information needed. Thank you!
Can't do Portrait Mode on iPhone 6+ (by ender21 on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 17:24:00)
Am I just missing a setting somewhere? I'd like to view some books in portrait mode and no matter what I do it stays Landscape. This is on the iPhone 6+ Update: It seems like this is dictated more by the book and not the app, so I've revised my rating back up to 3 stars.
Love (by CarrieLynnigan on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 17:20:00)
My most-used app. Love it.
Good overall reader on IPhone (by Besmarterthantheapp on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 15:29:00)
I only have one request, real page numbers. It is sad to open a story and see the you are on 1 of 261 and you start reading and 24 pages later the story ends. So in truth I started on page 1 and were actually only 25 pages. Why could I not have been told this at the beginning. Or at least I assume that it is 25 pages it is at least 25 screens on the smallest font on my 5c.
Wonderful, but I wish... (by Troubador4theLord on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 13:06:00)
I love the Kindle app on my iPad. I use it every day without a hitch. My only wish is that all books by the same author could be placed in a folder in my library.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 351th to 400th
Happy to be reading again (by Riverrocks on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 12:46:00)
I feel a little weird admitting it, but I had stopped reading actual printed books, magazines and newspapers due to severe allergies to dust, mold, and the chemicals in many inks. Then I was gifted an iPod touch and a few books on this app. Such a happy reunion with the written word. I've since shifted to an iPhone but still prefer this reading app. I also like that it lights itself and then turns off if I fall asleep.
Love it (by Rebecca Ruddell on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 09:45:00)
Love having my book on all my devices. Now when I get a chance to read I'm not bummed because I don't have my book. I have it everywhere!
Good app (by PhilScoville on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 06:06:00)
I feel the app has improved greatly over the last few years. I have been finding myself preferring this reading app to the default iBooks app. Keep up the goodness.
HOW DO I BUY BOOKS? (by Mr. Nooooodles on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 05:02:00)

Great! (by asherwood1 on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 03:57:00)
An e-reader to rival any others! Why? *Instantaneous downloads! *Organized the way you want! *Download to any Kindle or iPod you have the app on! *Bookmarks! *Document uploading, including PDF, to your account! *Furthest-page-read syncing! *Thousands of free and less than $1 books! Get this app!
Love it so far (by Hulababy on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 03:55:00)
I'm enjoying reading on my iPhone whenever I can since I always carry my phone with me. Still love my kindle too but that's not always with me.
Good, but inconsistent (by Imago imago on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 03:44:00)
I love the Kindle app, but have also experienced syncing issues between my iOS devices and computer. I wish this would work more consistently.
I love love love kindle ebooks (by Ramona Denton on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 03:43:00)
The latest update was ONLY for BUG FIXES. This means somebody did not do their job. Do developers test their apps before they are released? I'd love to have a way to organize my library better. The collections tools never seemed to do much for me.
Newest version no good. Avoid the update (by BillK12321 on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 03:42:00)
All cloud books are available but everything downloaded via iTunes is not. Do not upgrade.
Great app for reading almost anything! (by JimGrieme on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 02:04:00)
I've been using this app for over three or four years now on various platforms. It operates smoothly, is intuitive in its use and the developers stay on top of it all with periodic updates! It allows me to read as fast as I desire & is easy to see at night. Love the app & its layout and interface! Great app!

I'm always reading on my phone, my vision literally got worse because of it ( not funny at all ) but is like I can't help myself 😁😁😁 I love this app and I appreciate that someone thought of making it for phones ❤️❤️❤️
What would I do without this app?! (by Jeriwintexas on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 01:14:00)
I love being able to read wherever I go without having to lug a book around.
Kindle app (by Aaransmon on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 00:56:00)
I love that I can read my books in larger print and have a whole library with me at all times.
Most used app I own (by Rtpaynetx on Sun, 19 Oct 2014 00:32:00)
I love the Kindle app. I use it more than any app I have. For someone who loves reading the way I do the Kindle app is essential.
Great but could use a few things (by Suzie90 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 23:47:00)
I love having my books with me all the time on my iPhone and iPad but I'd love to be able to put books into collections, for the book to be marked as read, and maybe a blurb about the book (like the back of the book or inside flap).
Great app (by Born to ride2 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 23:42:00)
I have use this app for a few years. It's one of my favorite apps.
Easy (by Murraymor on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 23:37:00)
This is great app and easy to use. Always have a book when you need it.
Great reading app. (by dougff on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 22:34:00)
I don't take notes or annotate or highlight or any of that, but simply use the app as a reader on my iPad. For that it is perfect. Kindle books appear nearly instantaneously. They appear with their cover art intact, so they're easy to identify. It is easy to move them between the iPad and the cloud library. The font size/brightness controls are a snap to use, as are the shifts between white, black and sepia backgrounds.
Kindle app (by memaw7042 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 22:09:00)
Love this app. I use it all the time. The only draw back to it is not being able to separate the books into categories. I would like to put my Bibles in one category and my cookbooks into another, and separate them from my crime and fiction.
Great (by SANDY KELLY on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 21:52:00)
I really enjoy reading books and magazines through my Kindle App.
Love my kindle app (by Cdburns0118 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 21:11:00)
I love having my books available anytime anywhere. I sometimes forget my kindle, or my 3 year old will be playing her games but I can still read thanks to the app. Partnered with the amazing prices with Amazon prime, I can read so much.
Very good app (by Kikesoler on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 18:53:00)
It is very good and one of my favorite apps. However always have trouble synchronizing all devices.
I've used the app for years and loved it! (by Louisimo on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 18:34:00)
I've used this app on every smart phone and tablet I've owned alongside my kindle and it's always been a fantastic way to read.

Excellent App (by mikanicolew on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 18:18:00)
I love my Kindle app. I can download all of my favorite books in multiple formats.
Better with each iteration, but still lacking (by troydawg on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 17:44:00)
The proprietary Amazon book format limits much that can be displayed and formatted, but as a basic book format, Kindle works. ePub support would be a plus, but Amazon is more wedded to the Kindle format than they are to delivering the best possible experience to the reader. I would like the Kindle app so much more if they would implement a "pages remaining in chapter" feature, which has been standard to ePub readers since the format was introduced. Also, the lack of a separate menu access to the table of contents of each book forces a reader to add extra steps when consulting the contents of a book. I live in hope that Amazon will gradually adjust their software to accommodate such features, but we'll see.
Love it! (by INFO_PRO on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 17:33:00)

Great-On-The-Go (by CoffeeChap on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 17:07:00)
For an avid reader this app is a must. Helps me sync my library from smartphone, tablet, laptop and kindle device. Great for someone on the go!
Kindle App is Essential (by Committed Alaskan on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 16:58:00)
I thoroughly enjoy my Kindle App. I sold on Kindle and the function of the app. I have the app on my ipad and iphone and can read anytime, anywhere. I use the app more than my older Kindle because of the lighted background and that I carry my phone all the time. When I am waiting for an appointment or have down time in my job, I can pull out my phone or ipad and read a chapter and it all syncs from whatever device that I last used. It is great. I'm never letting it go.
Great App (by Galvanized Yankee on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 15:41:00)
I use it all the time. The sync feature is very helpful as I read my books on different devices during the day.
Needs organizing options (by H52ty on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 15:32:00)
Great for reading a book with bookmarks & highlighting passages. Huge problem no way to group books by genre or self defined shelves like Goodreads. Would like library books shown separately & then the listing would disappear when the book is returned. For owned books want to organize within genre in the order I want to read. Too big an app to have this many basic flaws.
Love it! (by EmJai77 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 14:13:00)
I use the kindle app more than the actual Kindle
Lifesaver (by Andyskarda on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 14:05:00)
Why would I carry a bulky book around when I can carry 50 on my iPad? I love the ease of purchase and immense range of titles.
Kindle app (by Yankeegirl on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:57:00)
Love tis app to read ebooks on it on my iPad
Good Enough (by aaawesum on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:52:00)
95% of the time it opens my book and let's me read. The UI is usually smooth. When it crashes (and it does often enough) it is more annoying then frustrating, but it operates slowly, ponderously, and there can be significant lag while I study.
I love it! (by P Diggety P Flap on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:17:00)
I would definitely recommend this app, if you love to read, don't look any further. You've found what you re looking for.
Love it! (by Chapelchick on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 12:05:00)
I've enjoyed using the basic Kindle reader for a few years now, but I love the convenience of the Kindle phone App. (I read...a lot!) I like being able to adjust the font and the background brightness. No complaints here.
Great Companion to Kindle (by Vigneron de Bourgogne on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 11:59:00)
I like being able to read books on the iPad at times, because it is larger and easier to read than on the smaller Kindle.it would be great to be able to read my newspaper subscriptions on the iPad also.
Outstanding (by Jisthor on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 11:58:00)
As someone who used to have to have and hold a book this app is a revelation! My waiting room boredom is gone. Travel is a pleasure. Easy to read, the perfect companion to the iPod. It does for my eyes what the iPod does for my ears.
Love Kindle App (by #39 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 11:13:00)
Love the efficiency and user friendly functions of this app!
Excellent! (by Scelticsurfer on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 07:10:00)
I'm happy with my kindle & no complaints !
Best Reading App!!! (by King Carricko on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 05:34:00)
I love my Kindle! And when I can't read on it, my kindle app is perfect. So many free books and cheap books out there. The new books are affordable and you never have to keep up with books again. They are safely on your device waiting to be reread! Very happy reader!!!
Kindle (by Slots journey 2 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 05:09:00)
I find the kindle reader easy to use and I enjoy using it very much..
Love (by TheMagicNumber on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 05:05:00)
I read on my Kindle device when commuting on the subway, the Kindle app on my iPad when reading in bed and the Kindle app on my iPhone when I don't have either (running around, waiting in lines, etc.) they all stay synced perfectly. Good options to make it readable for you tastes. Loving the free book I get every month as an Amazon Prime subscriber!
Kindle books (by Lavata on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 04:37:00)
I enjoy reading the books. I am glad I'm able to find most of them.
The best way to read a book (by Charlie kiddo on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 04:35:00)
I use this app on my tablet and phone and feel like I always have something to read whether I have a few minutes or an hour.
No text-to-speech it's 2014 (by edwardtilbury on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 04:22:00)
I would read a whole book on my phone I live in active life I need to listen to the stuff this doesn't have the old technology from the 1980s a voice text to speech? No time can't use it get with it
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 401th to 450th
Only way to read (by Ashnicorange on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 03:48:00)
I love the Kindle reading app. It lets me easily switch between my Iphone and Kindle when reading. I only wish that there were more color choices for pages and font. I think that would make it a little more fun.
Randomly doesn't work (by rhodeson on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 03:35:00)
It might not recognize your userid and password. This is a fairly frequent problem with no apparent solution.
Kindle App (by Brooks Hiller on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 03:33:00)
Love it, have it on my iPone, iPad, and I have a Kindle, itself. They are all good depending on when and where you are when you capture their stuff.
Love the app! (by AshCarr11 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 03:27:00)
I downloaded the app and buy books on Amazon and am able to read on my IPhone and Ipad! One of the best apps ever!!
Kindle (by Nomad Runner on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 03:21:00)
I really like having all my books access able across all my devices. The only improvement I would like to see is when you have a group of books together that their is a bottom/tab to allow jumping to different books in the group. Otherwise really like all other aspects of the app.
Portable Library (by Gretfish on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 02:49:00)
This app is amazing it allows me to access my library on all of my electronics as well as pick up where I left off in my current book.
Herp (by Shit245799532799533 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 02:44:00)
I love it. It is good. Good is it. Is it good. Is good it. Good it is.
Great app... (by dmarsh821 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 02:22:00)
Love the kindle app. Just as good as having the kindle. Love the fact that I can take my library with me when I leave home.
Good overall (by Sajast on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 02:08:00)
Overall it’s a good app. Easy to use and they’re getting better about collections. However, I still miss the ability to truly archive books instead of using the cloud. My main complaint is that there are NO parental controls whatsoever for the app. That means if you share an iPad or computer with younger humans who are not permitted to read certain books who also have their books on your account there can be a little issue.
Love this iPhone app! (by Laura Stamps on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 01:07:00)
I never thought I would enjoy reading Kindle books, much less on my iPhone 4. But I installed the app to try it out and was hooked from the very first Kindle book. The font is large and easy to read, and the app is a breeze to navigate. I couldn't be more pleased, and, yes, there are a bunch of books in my Kindle library now. It's incredibly convenient to carry my library on my phone wherever I go. I truly love this app!
A Little Kindle in your pocket (by Tweety@&$ on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 23:43:00)
This is an excellent app. It syncs when possible and is so accessible. In addition it loads the new books quickly. Very highly recommended.
Amazon (by Sugar175 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 23:26:00)
The Amazon reading app is amazing. I have it with me at all times. I either have my Kindle, or my iPad or iPhone. I'm an avid reader so this is great for me. I would recommend it to anyone who asked.
Awesome:) (by Lomeas18 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 22:47:00)
Even I don't have my kindle device with me all the time i can get access to my kindle books, loading the book when you need it through your iPhone, iPad.
Love it (by Monkey 15 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 22:35:00)
Best iPhone app ever. If I could only have one app this would be it.
Like it! (by Kenyan Team on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 22:24:00)
I enjoy the convenience of having a library at hand wherever I go.
Great app! (by Thoughts of mine on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 22:23:00)
I love this app, I fly quite a bit and, the trips can be very long. it's so nice to bring my books with me. I get so involved w reading that before I know it I've reached my destination. I also love the fast downloads!!
Ok but needs some improvement (by Jakengle on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 21:52:00)
Great to be able to buy and share easily from anywhere but page numbers do not show up.
Best reading app available! (by Mstrick96 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 21:48:00)
I love using the Kindle app on iPad. It is the best reading app I have tried. It is now the only one I use. The only change I would like to see is the ability to somehow export pdf files that have been opened in the app. I have some that are only on Kindle that I would like to use elsewhere, but can't get them out of Kindle! Otherwise, it is excellent. It will always be possible to think of other feature that"could" be added.
Can't live without it (by heyy!2009 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 20:31:00)
I love my kindle and I love the kindle app. I have it on all my devices. I especially love how you don't need wifi after you download all your books onto the device! Can't live without this app!
Only one tiny thing.... (by Bethagray on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 19:34:00)
I love the Kindle app on my phone. The only thing that would make it even more perfect is if the time still displayed at the top of the screen as you read. I hate having to come out of the app to find out how long I've been lost in my latest book.
Best book app (by duve on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 18:42:00)
I have been using this app since it first came out. I read on my iPad Air and my wife reads on her Kindle Paper White. We can share books effortlessly and ordering books is fast and securely delivered to our devices. Bookmarking and changing type sizes is simple plus getting samples to try before buying the book is great.
Kindle app (by ABitTipsie on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 18:19:00)
Excellent app. Love having my library with me when I'm on the go, especially good for those long waits in my doctor's office.
Awesome but.... (by Linda Marston on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 17:28:00)
I could not do without this app however, I wish that there was away to put a book really away. Right now I have categories/folders but can still see them. It may just my lack of knowledge.
Awesome (by Tgif-tgif on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 17:25:00)
I love it!! it helps me read more often
Love my kindle and app!!! (by Havinfun5270 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 17:07:00)
I love having access to my books through both my kindle and iPhone...I can read at anytime where ever I am because I am never without my phone.
Needs audio for all apps (by Kfylvi on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:49:00)
I love my kindle but would love if you could listen to any book on all apps.
Broken OS X Yosemite (by Allanque480 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:21:00)
Won’t open. Needs upgrade. Yosemite Beta has been out for how long and what? It just slipped your mind?
Great app (by 2Timothy on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 15:58:00)
The Kindle app is tops in so many areas. A few of my favorites are the synchronizing and ease of download.
5 Stars (by OCmd20 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 15:37:00)
Best ever app for reading. IPad and Kindle - an unbeatable combination
Great (by Kiss606 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 15:12:00)
It's the most used app on my phone.
Very good but could be better, (by Bama Beauty on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 14:53:00)
Keep improving it. Love the space e-books save
Mostly good (by DAMcF on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 02:58:00)
The basic functions are fine but the app crashed so badly that I had to delete it and reinstall--which means I have another possible place to send a purchased item. Would like to be able to delete one or two.
Love Kindle (by Derekgirl on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 02:41:00)
So glad to have all these books at my finger tips while living in my RV. Great having it synched on multiple devices as well.
Just like a kindle only better (by Rrkng821 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 00:21:00)
It's great being able to use the kindle app on my iPad as I'm always reading and I wouldn't give up my iPad for anything (except a better ipad)
very good app (by Mbrols on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 00:15:00)
Ver good app overall. Easy system for highlighting, definitions, page turns, etc. I would say the user interface for interacting with your highlighted and bookmarks could be better though.
Good App (by LeprechuanQ on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 00:12:00)
I use it frequently it is highly readable, but I think that it suffers from being designed primarily for Kindle devices other than that it is fun to use and has an incredible selection!!!
Crashed (by Maggie lake on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 22:54:00)
Oct 13 update totally crashed app on iphone the app is useless!
Mr. (by Amfaires on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 22:37:00)
Very good. But there should be improvements in better organizing documents and books in the collections. Export of notes and highlights to mail without having to use Shippefy.
Foolishness (by Lindo21 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 22:04:00)
To much stress to create a dumb account ill pass!!!
Love it (by Artist28374 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 21:56:00)
I love it. You don't know that you aren't on a real "kindle". Why only four stars? I would like to be able to search and I would like to be able to order the books somehow.
💗💗💗💗 (by Lillyscoo on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 21:20:00)
I just love anything and everything having to do with Amazon and books!!
Good Update (by mkgreer on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 20:43:00)
Love Kindle. Thank you for this update. I can now copy text directly from the book, and bookmarks can be more easily found by sorting the notes. I agree that each note takes up entirely too much screen space on my iPad. I'd rather see more notes at one time.
Read On! (by Theo1818 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 20:09:00)
Kindle is my reader of choice on my iPhone and iPad, as well as my Kindle devices. I read a lot, both fiction and nonfiction, and greatly enjoy the Kindle apps. You can trust Kindle!
Kindle rating (by Jc42h on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 19:29:00)
This is an excellent kindle. It serves my purposes very well. I have never encountered any problems with it.
Love my kindle (by cheryl lubbers on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 18:48:00)
Love the kindle. I am someone who reads a lot. And I read many books more than once. To have my library with me at all times vie kindle,iPhone or iPad. If I ever need to consume time I can painlessly. That being said I hope they can improve some. I would love to only have to do collections once. To have everything together wit one application would be great. I have to sort through all my books in each device even though on my computer I put everything into collections they don't transfer into multiple devices. It may be an amazon/apple issue but it would be so nice to only do it once.
Love New Collections Feature! (by kkblaze on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 18:40:00)
I'm a complete & total Bibliophile. As such, I have a ton of books. Until this latest upgrade I was having extreme difficulty not only locating books I wanted to read next (as another reviewer put it, without access to the little blurb that you read on Amazon when you bought the book, it can become very hard to find a new book to chose from--a simple link could help this problem!), but figuring out which ones I'd already read! With the introduction of categories, the app has improved dramatically. Not only does it allow me to place one book in multiple categories, but when I'm finished reading the book, I can add it to the 'I've read this!' category & not have to worry about repeating a book unless I really want to do so. It's such a relief to have organized "bookshelves" again. Thanks, Amazon!
A good ebook reader (by SpaceLover1948 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 18:24:00)
I have had 2 Kindles- the older type, not the Fire. I believe that Kindles in general are good ebook readers. But both of my Kindles developed menu problems. Some menu items could not be selected. That is why 4 stars instead of 5. I don't know about the newer Kindles.
About Kindle (by Royal_q on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 18:09:00)
When I first got it I simply could not concentrate to read things on it. I think it was because I was so book oriented. As time went on and I tried repeatedly to read on it, it became easier. Now I smooth love it!! I can take books with me to the Drs office and never leave them!! I can read things sent me about my retirement! Thank you.
Love it! (by Ashleyi22 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 18:00:00)
Love being able to read my kindle books anywhere I want!
Excellent App (by preacherman2013 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 16:21:00)
I now have over 173 e-books on my ipad air and still growing. What makes this app great for me is that I can write notes and highlight on the pages for references. I am able carry my library around with me and it is especially helpful when preparing presentations. Would be great for adding more highlight colors and the ability to make audio notes. Looking forward to the next major update.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 451th to 500th
Good, but could be great! (by Craftsyfan on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:16:00)
I love reading on my ipad, and the Kindle app works well. However, it could be better. It would be helpful if I could purchase books directly from the Kindle app. It would be helpful if there were functionality around collections to better manage my books. It would be helpful to be able to flag books, preferably in the cloud, that I've already read. All that said, this is still my favorite way to read my Kindle books.
Works for me! (by Deb7211 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:09:00)
Never had any problems. Would recommend to anyone.
Good but needs some features (by musicfan640 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:08:00)
Need to be able to separate read from unread in the sorting function. Recent is useless as everything goes into that category. Also I agree with the user who said it would be helpful to be able to read description of book in the cloud without having to download it to refresh memory or jump back to Amazon store to look it up.
Good but needs improvement (by MARCOS ORTEGA on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 14:42:00)
This app will bring your kindle library into your smartphone; however, the "economic war" isn't helping: I would love to be able to buy the books directly from the app instead of having to close it and go to the Amazon page to get the book. The way I see it, it's not amazon's fault, but Apple's, since Amazon will send samples and purchased books to the app without a hitch.
Use this every day! (by Glasmom on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 14:04:00)
My very favorite and most used app!
Great app! (by BBAROCHO on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 14:04:00)
Love this app and use it all the time.
In love (by Nisexx on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:52:00)
So convenient to have all my book in one place and on the go.
Convenient, useful . . . But could be so much more (by The Anti-theist on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:42:00)
I really enjoy having access to my library through my iPad, iPhone, Mac, and PC. There are differences among the different apps that I would love to see evened out across the spectrum of kindle readers but understand that is not always possible. For the iPad app, I find the multiple colors of highlighting very helpful and useful, particularly as a student; but that functionality is lost when I move to a laptop or PC kindle reader. It frustrates me to no end that when crafting some notes on a text using the note tool, if I jump out to another app to look up something, the notes I have taken are lost on returning to the kindle app. I can work around that but would sure love to see that fixed.
Indispensable (by J Djan on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:40:00)
I,can't do without Kindle. The access to my books in different devices is very helpful. The recent improvement have corrected my issues that I had with the app. It was the downloading of purchased books on my device . It used to be problematic . It would be on the cloud and would not transfer easily on to the device . I don't have that problem any more. The search feature is very helpful an the improved option of the dictionary and Wikipedia for word definitions that is instant on the go even plus word translation in different languages .
Very Satisfied (by Grass Valley123 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:25:00)
I had a Kindle way before the app was available and also had an early iPad. I was always carrying both devices. I did not use the early version of the app because it did not support collections and I needed that feature since I had so many books. I have used the app since collections were added and now carry only my iPad. I am very happy with the Kindle app. I find it very easy to use and it performs very well indeed. Thank you for a very useful, well designed, and well performing app.
Love this app (by jjp414 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:22:00)
I have this on all my apple devices and would be lost without it. No matter where I go I have my books with me love it.
Love it (by sUckOnTht!!! on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:11:00)
I get to ready books where ever go on my phone it's the greatest thing ever
Excellent (by Shelbinator Salvation on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:07:00)
This is a great app. There should be a means of buying books in the app., however.
Does what I need it to do (by Lucky the doggy on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 12:52:00)
I use this app all the time without problems. Works well and is stable and reliable. What else would I want or need? Can't think of anything at this point. Recommend it.
Clean Bookshelf (by gromark on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 12:07:00)
My library of printed books can be organized; read and kept here, read but not kept (ie given away-no longer in library), not yet read and up next to read, sectioned by subject or author, etc. Please address this. Also I agree with other reviews about improving the note feature;(organizing them and reading them) the ability to index back to notes.
Love! (by Ladie Reign on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:49:00)
I live this app. I'm signed into it on everyone's devices (phones, tablets and iPads) and couldn't be happier. Thanks Amazon
Kindle app (by Chunk uv on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:22:00)
I could buy books on my droid but not on my iPhone not happy about that. On my droid when I opened the app it would show me books that may interest me, I don't see that on this phone. If it is an option I can't see could someone tell me please.
Love it !!!! (by 4 pies on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 10:40:00)
I use it just to read for fun so it works great.
New upgrade is good. Love the colored highlighters. (by Jeffob on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 10:36:00)
The new upgrade seems to "reset" and is more sluggish, than previous versions. 10/16/14 update. Love the translation feature. Still resets too often.
Elegant design, functional and easy to use (by WonderingWendy on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 10:32:00)
I especially enjoy using the Accessibility option on my iPad to have the books read outloud.
Books available more easily (by Gam OK on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 10:22:00)
I love reading e books, but it would be much easier to purchase new books if we could click on them at the end of a book and purchase directly from there instead of having to go to Amazon, find them, etc. I would buy a lot more books sooner if this function was available!
Love this app (by IsisAstarte on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 09:52:00)
I read every single day with this app. It's easy to use, to adjust the text size, back ground color. It's one of my favorite apps if not THE favorite app.
Great, simple and fun (by Brendalisa88 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 09:31:00)
I love that I can read any of my books on my phone & desktop. It's simple to use!
Don't download new version (by Loopy2005 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 08:56:00)
Kindle has fixed the bugs and made this an excellent app. I use it all the time for my personal documents as well as ebooks. I rarely purchase any ebooks other than kindle because they are so good.
Kindle (by FFF666 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 07:06:00)
The iPhone app is great. My books and stories are never more than 5 seconds away. I read while waiting in the cashier lines everywhere, while waiting for the doctor....everywhere I go, literally.
Ok (by Beckster48 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 07:02:00)
I like this app and use it all the time. I find the new saving feature so annoying it almost makes me hate it. When I'm scrolling through a book it "catches up" on the dots and won't let me scroll just a little. It starts jumping back a forth between them. I tried to go to Amazon to give feedback but couldn't find where to do so. It can't be turned off that I can find. If they are going to add new "features", I would like to be able to choose if I want them or not. I do like the black background for reading and use it all the time. I wish in the app there were more choices to organize like creating groups, so I could have each author in their own group. I did have a kindle before and made groups, but the process was cumbersome.
Very good app (by Patrick MacGuire on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 06:27:00)
I use it every day. I do wish it didn't spin around, every time I move the phone a little bit. It should stay on portrait until you actually change it to landscape.
Waste of time app. Waste of money purchases (by Cass 20721 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 06:19:00)
iPhone 5/iPad...The app used to work great and I loved it. However, it won't download any books I have bought in the last 9 months. Have tried everything I can think of and even tried on a different device. Waste of money on the books I purchased. I guess I'll have to try Nook.
Love it! (by CH02 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 06:15:00)
Absolutely love the ease of use & convenience of Kindle...the app & the actual Kindle. I don't have to remember to grab a book or lug it around. And I can get ebooks from my library. Highly recommend!!
Proverbial page turner! (by CelticTex on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 05:25:00)
This book takes off pretty quickly. Characters are interesting and adequately developed. Narrative is concise. Dialogue was natural. There are a few chuckles--and some groans--but this is not a comedy. It is, however, quite enjoyable. I looked forward to picking it up to continue reading, and resisted having to put it down. I look forward to reading more by this author.
Functional (by Seattle_Sundowner on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 04:53:00)
I mean, it works. But why can't I buy kindle books?
I agree good but could be better (by Blackey Cole on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 04:48:00)
I love my kindle reader and the whole digital book format. Two thinks I want added is a way to write notes in a text editor that is linked to the book but not a part of it as the current note system is. The other improvement would be able to buy books from within the app instead of having to use the web browser.
Good app (by Iamcdngirl on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 04:39:00)
Generally I'm happy with the app. I would like to be able to go directly to a specific page or chapter though rather than use the bar at the bottom to try to scroll to exactly where i want to go. It's always too far forward or backward.
Good (by Alphadelite on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 04:36:00)
It does what it's supposed to do. It syncs easily and usually without any glitches.
Wish it was more intuitive (by Ginsburl on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 04:33:00)
I really love the Kindle app for iPad. However it's not that easy to use. Seems like there should be functionality at the end of samples that would then direct the reader to Amazon and the ability to buy the full book. Instead, you gave to back up and access the Kindle store and go that route. And, I can never remember the steps; so, I have to do a Google search. The app could be so much more user friendly.
Best App Ever! (by kendallreann on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 04:16:00)
Fantastic! Love everything about the app. I can get almost any book I want, I'm never out of things to read and totally convenient.
Great app (by Avapoo on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 04:11:00)
Love reading on my kindle app
Kindle iPad app (by dewsoft on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 04:10:00)
I've used the app for several years and the only thing it doesn't have is paperwhite like my Kindle. I think Amazon has done a great job keeping this app up to date a working with various versions of IOS. This app has allowed me to only carry one device at work with my Kindle library and Office apps on one device
Decent but could be fantastic (by Julea12 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:48:00)
I agree with what others have said, in regards to not being able to organize your books (genre, which ones you have read etc.). I too would also like to be able to read a snapshot of the books I have downloaded because I have downloaded so many that I don't remember what they are about. Considering the technology available today, there really is no excuse as to why this app doesn't offer more.
Great way to read, but not children's books. (by oldgreenshirt on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:25:00)
I thought it would be hard to adjust to reading on a tablet, but it didn't take long. I recommend it to older folks whose hands get sore holding a book. However, I bought and downloaded a children's book (J. Viorst, Alexander and the Terrible...Day) and was quite disappointed that it was so small we could not appreciate the drawings, and even when you tap the print to enlarge it, it still wasn't very big.
Great Reading App (by LjMAIA on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:21:00)
Very user friendly. Couldn't be easier. The sample download needs some work, though. Samples don't appear in library.
Organizing (by Iceskater296 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 02:55:00)
I like that you let me know when new works are coming out by authors I've read. I would also like to have a way of indicating which authors I never want to buy again - a "dislike" list
Good app!! (by TLO0721 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 02:41:00)
This is a good app. I have never had any problems with it. Very convenient to have on my phone if I need something to do while I am waiting. Sometimes I have a problem with it syncing up to my kindle reader but to me that's not a big deal.
Just like a real kindle!!! (by Spunkyreader on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 02:38:00)
I love using this app. In fact I gave up using my kindle for this. At first I thought it was going to damage my eyes but if you lower the brightness, you are fine. For all you readers out thee, this app is all we really need. Short, simple, and to the point. There is nothing complicated about it and you will be reading a book within seconds. Only negative is you can't download books onto the app. You would have to put it in the books app already on the iPad. Other than that, you are ready to go.
Fine app (by Bookluvah on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 02:26:00)
I have never had any problems with this app. Granted, all I do is read books, I don't use the notes or any other features except highlighting. I only wish you could buy books and read book reviews directly from the app, instead of having to leave the app and go to amazon.com.
Top rate (by rt2surf on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 02:22:00)
I enjoy reading my books off Kindle. Everything is right at my fingertips.
Needs improvement (by Beachgirl20 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 02:04:00)
I've read hundreds of books on Kindle( iPad) and I think it's ok but better editing would really help. Often the wrong word is substituted and phrasing gets messed up. Also , misspelling is very common. It is however a convenient way to carry a ton of books without having to juggle them all.
Great reading (by Gentle 51 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 01:56:00)
I use it with my IPad and IPhone. It syncs between devices nicely. It works with the library and other sources of books, not just with Amazon kindle books. It is my favorite and most used ap for reading. All the features work well...search, bookmarks, highlighting. The pages turn easily and nicely.
Frustrating (by TuffGirl1980 on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 14:13:00)
It now takes a few seconds to sync every time you come in from out of the app. Annoying. Cuts off sentences on one page and doubles sentences on the next making it impossible to follow the story. So disappointing. Please fix!!!!!

Ok but please improve (by terrijo8 on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 02:09:00)
I have a very large selection of books in my Kindle Cloud. I wish that the books that I have completed would show completed in the Cloud as well. I also would like to be able to read the book description in the cloud so that I can determine which I want to read next. I download a lot on the road and then have to refresh my memory about the book content. I shouldn't have to download or go online to do that.

Text not visible in black reading mode on iPhone 6+ (by turnerh on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 22:27:00)
I like to read a night and I typically use the black reading mode to reduce the strain on my eyes. On certain books in this version of the Kindle app, the black reading mode doesn't make the text turn white like it used to, instead the text is black. Black text on a black background makes it very hard to read. Please fix.
Your update process is worthless (by Spindriftisland on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 14:18:00)
Tried to do the update. Error says it could not be done and to try later. So what is the problem?my device, the network, your server or what? Why can't yoy at least give me a hint to tne problem. I like the ap but ....
Good but could be so much better (by cjones on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 10:18:00)
I love the new collections capability. However, I hate the UI for bookmarks and notes. It's made up of clunky blocks of texts that all blend together. I hate looking at it, it is overwhelming and makes me not want to look at it altogether. Ugh. But I use notes for discussion with my book club. Please change notes/bookmarks to something more user friendly. Perhaps smaller squares so you can see smaller swatches of texts in each screen which would help preview and find certain notes/passages better. And please find a way to make the notes and bookmarks look different. They are NOT the same thing and should not look the same. Also this is an update to my review due to the iOS 8 update: Still not liking "The Notebook" function for notes, it is still not user-friendly. I love your new widget which allows you to view current items in your library and all you have to do is tap them to open and start reading. However, I'm really annoyed that I removed some items from my device so there is only 1 book on my device but the widget still shows the 2 items that I have no intention of reading again and it is so annoying to me that I've turned off the widget. Can you please make this widget update based on what is currently in your library?
Doesn't load anymore (by Diana Chow on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 03:15:00)
Unfortunately this app no longer seems to work on iOS 8... As in, won't start at all.

Love my kindle (by Plboogie24 on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 02:21:00)
I love my kindle !! I love being able to read where ever I am, I think it's great and the only thing I would like would be to have some kind of alert or email sent when a book I've purchased in a series has another book published, a year + can go in between books and I don't always remember and it can be tiring to go back and look up each book to see if another addition to the series has been published. I'd also like a better way to sort books, I have a lot of books downloaded and it can be very cluttered, I wish there was a way to sort them in folders where I could put books that I've already read so they wouldn't show up in the main list.
Options missing (by TTP}} on Mon, 13 Oct 2014 18:33:00)
It doesn't have the ability to adjust the font style, and it is just too rough and is obnoxious to read. Also the concept of having the hours and minutes in the book instead of pages per chapter is really stupid. It is no where near as smooth as iBooks or scribd.
Great app; however... (by Aleecyboo on Mon, 13 Oct 2014 01:46:00)
Does it really need to update so much/often? I leave the app for 5 seconds and when I come back it loads again. Kind of annoying.
Force closing (by Wotnot3006 on Mon, 13 Oct 2014 00:19:00)
I have had to app for a while now and just a little while ago it has started force closing on me. It lets me open the app but when I click on a book to continue reading the app shuts down and sends me to home screen. I have turned my phone off and turned it back on and it continues to happen.

Paper is passé (by Esqapes on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 15:18:00)
Have not read a paper book in a very long time, and I read constantly. With the Kindle app on all my iOS devices I can read wherever I happen to find a spare moment. And it facilitates reading multiple books at the same time...would never be able to tote around 10 real books, but with the Kindle that is no problem. Best thing to happen to reading since fixed type.
Nice but needs one feature... (by RhianneCA on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 00:40:00)
I buy tons of books and a feature in app that allows me to read the synopsis would be nice. This feature is available on my Nook so I'm not quite sure why it hasn't been offered for kindle. Right now I have to toggle back and forth between the app and Amazon. This is my only frustration. It would be nice if book purchasing was available in app as well but I'll settle for book descriptions in app for now.
Love it (by Cornhuskerjo on Fri, 10 Oct 2014 23:52:00)
I would go crazy at work if I didn't have the kindle. I am also reading love it
Outlining (by ggangala on Thu, 09 Oct 2014 04:07:00)
It's kind of annoying that when reading a comic or graphic novel the barriers alone the side are white. There's no feature to fix this and most comics have dark settings. It offsets the mood
Okay...... (by Mimiez831 on Thu, 09 Oct 2014 03:50:00)
I love the app it's just that I want to read a book but someone who is using the same account is reading to so I basically have to wait forever so the app is okay they need to change that some how weather they need to add avatars to choose and u can leave off where you where reading on your avatar so others can read the same book see it did not take a rocket scientist POOOFFFF everyone's mind was just blown

Nice app, but needs some features (by Bezaleel31 on Wed, 08 Oct 2014 11:42:00)
I can share text only on Facebook and Twitter... Why can't I do it via email? I can translate the text (which I think is terrific!) but can't select and copy the translated text. I'd like that books not bought at the Kindle store also be synced (position and highlights) between all my devices.

Best app ever for readers ! (by DannyLynn421 on Wed, 08 Oct 2014 05:17:00)
I love to read. This app is wonderful. It works on all of my devices. With amazon & book bub my library is vast & I will never run out of books to read. I definitely recommend for everyone. My only suggestions would be a direct link to amazon for instant purchases and easy access to book reviews. Also, I would like to have 'book blurbs' or descriptions included along with contents, etc..to make it easier to decide which book I want to read next.
One criticism (by Balyne on Wed, 08 Oct 2014 05:11:00)
Since the update, Kindle app on the iPad keeps losing its place. I'll reopen it and it'll be 20 or 30 pages away from where I left it. Needs to be fixed Amazon!

Don't remove features (by iGoodtimes on Tue, 07 Oct 2014 05:03:00)
This review is about this version. They recently added the reading speed tracking and over time I've very much come to rely on this for keeping track of time and estimating whether or not I'll get through the next chapter or section. This update has removed that feature and taking functional components away is not acceptable.
Clunky and poorly designed (by Rrrobggthgff on Tue, 07 Oct 2014 01:43:00)
I enjoy the whispersync feature, but why do I need three apps to use it? Even with the three apps I still have to go to the mobile sites to buy anything. I've bought three separate books in kindle and audible formats, and I have yet to be able to do it in less than 20 minutes. It's all just endlessly entering in my login info and searching in vain for a button to click to purchase. Why are you making it so difficult for me to give you money? Do you realize that it is significantly easier to download this stuff illegally than to use your app? Don't force me into a life of crime. Hire somebody who knows what they're doing to redesign your apps.
No Family Sharing...? (by Betrthanren on Tue, 07 Oct 2014 01:12:00)
So I'm confused...? The Kindle app is free...why would you not allow family sharing? No one but me can download the app from the cloud and if you try under another user you are denied even though it's a different iTunes account under the same family share plan. Guess the family will be using iBooks more!!!

Library loan expiration / define profile (by Shelssc on Mon, 06 Oct 2014 02:18:00)
Great app. Two *wish list* items that are sort of related. We share a family account (why buy books multiple times?) but I wish that I could specify whose profile was reading something. It could maybe be a feature if you wanted profiles. And maybe parental controls too? Second request is similar, but relates to library books. 1. I wish it would have an indicator if *I* had already read a book. And 2. It should on the main page show if the loan has expired and be filterable. I have a ton of books my husband has checked out at the library that I haven't read and there is no way to know if it's a current loan, expired loan, or a book we own.

Store?? (by katerum on Sat, 04 Oct 2014 11:45:00)
I have used this on my droid devices for years and don't understand why I have to go to one of those devices to make a purchase. I give the Kindle app a 5/5 on droids & 4/5 on iOS. The in-app features just aren't as rich/user-friendly in the iOS format.
Good (by Silverfire Fey on Sat, 04 Oct 2014 08:18:00)
The only reason for not giving this a five is because I can't buy books with this app.

Great App but it could use a few improvements (by Matt@TMS12 on Fri, 03 Oct 2014 19:31:00)
Overall this is an excellent app! But two things would make it even far better: 1) A text-to-speech feature. 2) Being able to take free-hand notes and marks in the books. If it had these 2 additions I would give it a 5+ rating.

Love the kindle app! It's definitely my favorite for reading on my phone and iPad. Also wonderful because it can be read on any platform. It has some very nice customization features and just seems to always work properly! I have never yet found a book cheaper from one of the other online retailers. And I can import my own books and PDF files to read. Good job Amazon!

Awful (by Zeedunk on Tue, 30 Sep 2014 19:45:00)
Destroys battery life, forces a screen reload every time it loses focus & breaks interface conventions left and right. You've got to use amazon's terrible app or website to buy books. For as much money and engineering talent as Amazon has, this app is an embarrassment.

Good animation on page turning. Handy organization (desktop vs online). I only wish there were a “hide” feature so’s I could simplify the display of my online library. Sometimes I get a little ticked at Amazon’s domineering attitude toward certain authors and publishers, too; but that’s off-topic.
Awesome, but... (by Learnkhmer on Tue, 30 Sep 2014 01:15:00)
I REALLY (can’t stress that enough) wish that the different colored highlights that I can make on the mobile app would transfer to my desktop version!!

It would make mine and so many students’ lives that much better for it.

Finally!! Text is sharp on iPhone 6+!! (by itunes80 on Mon, 29 Sep 2014 23:04:00)
As an early iPhone 6 Plus owner, and an owner of the Kindle Paperwhite, with soo many books on Kindle, I've been waiting for this update! Have actually been using iBooks to check out the ebooks reading experience on the larger new iPhone, and iBooks turns out to be pretty cool. The problem with the Kindle app is it hasn't been updated for the new larger screens, and so the app interface is blown up and blurry, likewise for text, also and blown up and blurry, just unreadable, and frustrating since Kindle is where all my purchased books are at. But now it's finally here, the update that enhances the Kindle app, getting rid of blurry text, making them sharp on the new larger iPhone!
Needs an update for iPhone 6+ (by NYCPhone on Mon, 29 Sep 2014 22:10:00)
Changing to 5 stars - iPhone 6 update is great - thanks! Text is blurry on the new 6+. Hopefully Amazon is working on an update. Until then iBooks looks great.

Needs to allow in app book purchases. (by Northcoast Will on Mon, 29 Sep 2014 14:34:00)
I love being able to read kindle books on my iOS devices. I would also like to buy books from within the app and not have to go online through a browser. That is the fault of apple not Amazon.
Not iBooks (by Colrr on Mon, 29 Sep 2014 14:16:00)
The only advantage of Kindle over iBooks is that often the same book is cheaper in the Kindle version. I have several gripes. If you view a footnote you cannot return directly to the text. There is no reference to how many pages are left in a chapter. There are other aggravations as well. All the raves about this app must be from folks who have never used iBooks. The kindle app is just clunkier than iBooks.
Love this app (by gjrich on Mon, 29 Sep 2014 03:50:00)
I'm so glad I have this app. It's so convenient. I load up with e-books before a trip. I would not be able to carry that many books.

Smooth and accurate. (by adanlerma on Sun, 28 Sep 2014 19:48:00)
Besides always keeping track of read pages on apps across devices, it does so easily and smoothly. Easy and useful highlighting, note taking, and dictionary lookups. Also easy to become used to and expect to always work well.
Outlander Series (by Dave in Pasadena on Sun, 28 Sep 2014 19:26:00)
As a fan and sometime writer, I'm hooked on Gabaldon's skillfull blending of a classic Sci-fi premise with period pieces researched beyond belief. Now I feel as if I'm the one who has traveled back to 1743 Inverness via the mysterious standing rocks! Well deserved kudos to the author--a singularly compelling and well-crafted series. Easily accessible by slick Kindle and Audiobook Apps.

I love my Kindle on iPad,but I would love it if I could have a quick summary available without a major search to help me decide what to read. I sometimes buy more than 1 book at a time, and I forget what book is which before I get to them.
Distorted text during page turns (by Hokiesunshine on Sun, 28 Sep 2014 06:22:00)
Love the app--until now. Since the update, now when I turn the pages, the text distorts. Ugh! Fix please, or I'll have to stop using this app on my iPad.
Kindle App is Wonderful (by 1ponder on Sun, 28 Sep 2014 04:57:00)
I have 3 Kindles plus the Kindle App on my iPhone. I love reading my eBooks on each of my devices. It is wonderfully convenient to have so many various opportunities to pick up whatever device is available, or most convenient for the situation, and continue where I left off last. The ability to sync the eBook reading across multiple platforms and devices is fantastic.
Love reading on my Kindle (by Joyfulcook on Sat, 27 Sep 2014 23:00:00)
I do enjoy reading on the Kindle. One thing that would be helpful is to be able to sort books as they are read into categories, save, don't read again, series books etc.
Where is the update for iPhone 6+ ??? (by THX5334 on Sat, 27 Sep 2014 21:08:00)
I use Kindle almost exclusively between iOS and Kindle tablets. I'm trying to use it on my new 6+ but the text is headache inducing fuzzy! Please, please, fix!
CANT SIGN IN (by RandomNotChosenName......... on Sat, 27 Sep 2014 19:44:00)
I used the same login info on Amazon.com and it worked but not on the app
Handy (by FCBusyBee on Sat, 27 Sep 2014 17:30:00)
Really nice to have the app on my phone that integrates with my iPad so I always start from the right page.
Needs an update for iPhone 6+ (by NYCPhone on Sat, 27 Sep 2014 17:01:00)
Text is blurry on the new 6+. Hopefully Amazon is working on an update. Until then iBooks looks great.
Love! (by NorCalNicky on Sat, 27 Sep 2014 15:49:00)
I never write reviews but I LOVE the kindle app! Love that is syncs to my kindle
Umm...something missing. (by Colin & Jacqueline on Sat, 27 Sep 2014 15:40:00)
Can I have an option to purchase any book directly from app rather than always having to get on Amazon itself? Also it would be great if I could have an option to scroll through pages instead of flipping pages, just find it preferable when reading on iPad or even my phone.
LOVE (by lovingtheplants on Sat, 27 Sep 2014 00:15:00)
I love my kindle apps on my iPhone and I pad. I love how they sync so I can pick up any device and be on the right page. I love taking a library of books with me in my iPhone.
Love Kindle except for (by Gail Pica on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 20:15:00)
Deleting of books you have made it too complicated.
Love the reader missing needed fixes (by Christopher Ruppert on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 19:59:00)
Honestly I really like the kindle app. It could use some much needed polish since its introduction it has gone down hill. There are no page turns and the biggest problem is it looks terrible on my iPhone 6 plus. I would love to read on my kindle app and I need to catch up on two or three books, however it is so blurry I get a headache trying to read. I am very tempted to start using apples iBook application.
Iphone 6 plus owner (by Bpenda13 on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 19:23:00)
This app looks awful on my 6+. Needs update to scale for it
Feeding Eden (by Snowy pond on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 17:58:00)
I've only read thus far the sample page, but it sounds really good. I'm old school I guess, but reading a book via an electronic device such as Kindle can't possibly replace holding the real book in my hands or smelling the print from a brand new book. I miss those qualities and no matter has many good books I read over an electronic device nothing will replace having the actual book. I love books and love displaying them in my library. I will have to admit tho that the Kindle way of reading has many advantages such as clutter cutback and eliminates stacks of books everywhere. It's also easier to carry a Kindle with me rather than a dozen or so books. So keep them coming and I'll keep on reading them.
Great to use, But on thing's missing... (by Kaylovesjacob5613 on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 17:54:00)
I love that I'm able to download the kindle into my iPhone but why am I only able to get free samples of the books and not get the full versions of the books
It is useful. (by edutechSF on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 17:17:00)
I really love reading, but it is not easy to find time to read. It is the good way to have time for reading. Whenever I have free time, I use that app. I also put the book on my several devices. I bought several books from kindle store, and am reading them. If you are crazy at reading, don’t hesitate to download it. It is the good deal.
Optimize for iPhone 6 and 6 plus. (by Psagap1 on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 17:09:00)
The app is great with many great features. Only thing that bothers me and needs improvement is the fact that the app is zoomed in, especially for the iPhone 6 plus. It's not the same experience. I'm using iBooks until it gets optimized. Apart from that, amazing app.
Dependable App (by DCinMedford on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 16:30:00)
Amazon keeps this app update to current iOS version and they are quick to fix a bug. Plus searching Kindle books on Amazon is superior to iBooks.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 601th to 650th
Great, could be improved (by staroslav on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 15:37:00)
by expanding ways to export highlights via email.
A great app (by Csciacc on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 12:57:00)
The app in general is fantastic. There are very few issues I've encountered. It is relatively easy to use, it's clear & smooth, and there are a few different formatting options to choose from. My main concern is with toggling back and forth when there are footnotes. It is difficult to click the small blue link especially if it is at the top of the page. If this can be fixed I would rate a five.
Best App (by Simp9334 on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 12:00:00)
I love my kindles but I love the app. Now I don't have to take two devices and all the chargers.
Useless (by Mchldreuce on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 03:15:00)
Zero stars. Downloaded just fine. Then it asked for my amazon logon and password. I've tried changing the password and reloading the app. It still won't recognize me. Nothing I can do will work. Thanks for wasting my time.
Love this app (by weezie95 on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 03:09:00)
I have a Kindle and a Kindle Fire so I can compare those two to the app on my iPad. This works very well. I would like to be able to highlight a paragraph that continues onto the next page all together.
Fantastic (by Bookfeelslover on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 02:17:00)
Great app, such a great way to read! Very easy and convenient. I haven't had any issues with kindle. I love reading with kindle and I highly highly recommend it!
App does not load (by Annie K2 on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 01:58:00)
The Kindle app on the IPhone 6 does not load. I can't get into it at all since the update. Please fix it.
I Love My Kindle App! (by BSAmiel on Fri, 26 Sep 2014 00:43:00)
I love being able to sync my Kindle with my iPhone and iPad so I can read wherever I am.
iOS 8 + Kindle = 😣 (by 128kilo on Thu, 25 Sep 2014 23:51:00)
I've gathered in not the only one having issues with Kindle after the update. Besides page formatting errors, predictable crashing patterns (start x1, fail; start x2, fail; hard restart iPad; start x3, success), and wads of text just not there, it's a good ereader experience. the only trouble are the update breaks. c'mon Jeff!
Kindle app (by Laude05 on Thu, 25 Sep 2014 23:50:00)
I just switched from a Kindle Touch to an iPad and the Kindle app works great.
Only finds sample books (by Robertggg on Thu, 25 Sep 2014 15:42:00)
Will not find books to read only samples
Never thought.... (by Kathy.2222 on Thu, 25 Sep 2014 13:11:00)
I would be able to get into ebooks, but I love the Kindle app! Lots of free books available, able to get books from the library, just a great way to read!
I love it (by LaOdette on Thu, 25 Sep 2014 02:59:00)
I love this app. Thank you. Also please make update so we can hide certain books on cloud :)
New update (by Jillje on Thu, 25 Sep 2014 03:38:00)
Never had any trouble w/the app until the new update. When I first open the app it crashes. This never happened before I updated. The app no longer opens my book automatically.
Landscape mode please... (by Aaaleeee on Thu, 25 Sep 2014 00:49:00)
I recently switched to Kindle from iBook (I've had enough with iBooks, so many different issues) and Kindle is by far a superior reading app. I also love the fact that I can get books in different languages (Spanish, French, etc) because Amazon account does not have the regional restriction like App/iTunes store. One thing I wish though is that I would like to have landscape mode to see two pages at once like real books. My 4th grader who always preferred real books just started liking e-readers but asks to get books on iBooks because she likes to see 2 pages together.
Kindle for iPhone 5 (by CriticalGuy on Wed, 24 Sep 2014 20:44:00)
It's great to have Kindle books and magazines synced to my phone and tablet. Of course it's easier reading on the Kindle's larger screen but reading on the iPhone's small screen is better than you'd think.
Convenient App (by Mistay28 on Wed, 24 Sep 2014 19:24:00)
I really like the Kindle App, and I would have given it more stars if I could actually get to browse and purchase books within the app.
Not available at Ukrainian AppStore (by bisSurfer on Wed, 24 Sep 2014 14:22:00)
My friend has bought a book from Amazon but cannot install this app because he has Apple ID in Ukraine (UA) and app is unavailable there. That is annoying.
Kindle App for iPhone (by D Hemperly on Wed, 24 Sep 2014 10:28:00)
Fast. Fantastic. Free. The best reader out there. Makes you want to read...even on your 5s.
Thanks but one more thing... (by Bagestic2 on Wed, 24 Sep 2014 08:51:00)
I wanna thank the developers for paying great attention to customer's needs and for adding many great features like copy feature and page number. There is one more feature that is really missed in this number-one app and that is the ability to highlight a portion of a word, and highlighting paragraphs that extend to the next page without any fragmentation. Kindle is the best and I hope it always stays that way.
Easier access to purchase. (by Eurrka on Wed, 24 Sep 2014 01:58:00)
I've used this app on a windows phone and apple. And the biggest difference that I hate is that I cant purchase new books through the app. If we could have at least a shortcut I'd give it the 5th star.
Amazon Kindle (by DrakesMistressYaKnow on Wed, 24 Sep 2014 00:01:00)
I love this app. I love the ease of being able to have all my books in the palm of my hand and I absolutely love kindle unlimited. I think it's one of greatest ideas ever.
Convenient (by Fckncknms on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 23:35:00)
Able to read and buy Kindle books across devices from anywhere, or read PDFs, etc. for work and school. Never had an issue with crashing. Able to have light text on dark background for reading at night, can scale text and change highlight colors (on iPhone and iPad apps anyway). Very useful and well executed.
Favorite Fluff Reading App (by BookGirl4Ever on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 22:48:00)
Just have to give this 5 stars since latest update. For all my casual reading this has always ended up being my favorite app. Just like its feel; how the pages turn, x-ray, percentage read. I appreciate also that the suggestions & problems we have get addressed--shows humility. Kindle books do tend to be the least expensive. Thank you Amazon for continuing to court us!
The new copy button is great (by Update is great!!! on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 22:04:00)
Ok so I have often had to do book reports and the only way I could access the books was through this app. When i Studied for a test i put things in charts and the fact that i can copy and paste them in there is absolutely great. I give this app an amazing 5 stars.
Kindle review (by Reading on the fly on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 20:39:00)
Best thing to happen to my phone and iPad. I am never without a book and simple to use.
Optimized for iPhone 6?? (by stefanieRibarra on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 19:03:00)
I like the app but it needs to be optimized for iOS 8 but more specifically for the iPhone 6, because we can tell that the keyboard and screen look just enlarged! The words don't look clear anymore. Hopefully you guys fix it so it looks good in the new bigger screens of the iPhone.
Update please (by LaOdette on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 19:00:00)
I like the app but I don't like how I can't hided books from cloud. I don't want to delete it permanently but just hide it so minors wouldn't have access to them. Please update. Thank you.
Love. Love. Love this app!!!! (by Treveylan on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 14:05:00)
This app is about 90% of the reason I even use my devices. Best. Thing. Ever. Especially for a working bookworm like me.
Suddenly won't open a third of my books (by Microdoug on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:16:00)
I have had this app for a couple of years and usually love it, but now for no reason it gives an error message when I try to open 12 of the 37 books that I have. I have read them all several times before without a problem. I haven't changed to ios8 or done anything. The error message told me to delete the app and re register it which I did. Then I had to reload all of my books and that didn't help a bit. FIX IT please!
LOVE!! (by hugtrees4me on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 12:17:00)
This book app is a geek's best friend! I absolutely love it! The selection is great!
Love, love, love! (by Ddff99 on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 09:12:00)
I was very resistant to read a book on my devise, I am an avid reader and love the feel of the page and the weight of the book. One evening I ran out of paperbacks and after my first book on the Kindle, I couldn't stop. I love it!
Usually a good app (by NathanGibson on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 09:06:00)
Love the fact that this app allows you to read Kindle books without a Kindle! Saves you from carrying around extra devices. The syncing between devices works great too! Only complaint is that on my laptop - sometimes trouble receiving new books - hard to find in library and sometimes page numbers show on iPhone & ipad but not on computer. But for the most part I enjoy the convenience. Thanks
Love my kindle (by samothebigho on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 03:36:00)
So far I have not had one glitch and it switches easily from one device to the other with no issues.
Can't open or delete Kindle (by Blues caster on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 02:49:00)
Ever since I upgraded to the new version on my IPad 2 I can't open or delete the app to try and reinstall it. Very frustrating.
In love, but wish..... (by Mommy2leej on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 02:29:00)
Wish there was a way to shop through the app as opposed to shopping online then it downloads. Would just be one less step...
Great app (by sbarrillea on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 01:32:00)
Love using this app for reading in the go. Loading PDFs makes the print small though. Great for kindle downloaded books.
Better than Kindle (by Tar Heel Joseph on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 00:34:00)
This app is better than a dedicated Kindle. I now use iOS device for virtually all of my reading. I always have my phone nearby and it is large enough in landscape orientation. Bravo!

Painful on new devices (by notafanofthisatall on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 17:31:00)
Trying to use version 4.5 on the iPhone 6 plus is a truly wretched experience. The text in the books themselves looks as if someone smeared Vaseline over the screen, rendering it more or less unusable.
Good compromise when I don't have my normal Kindle (by ErnieE5 on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 16:50:00)
The Kindle ereader app was one of the main reasons I purchased a iPhone many years ago. I prefer the passive e-ink for marathon reading sessions, but having the phone app is great for my commute or other times I find myself otherwise killing time.
iPhone 6 update please! (by Andrewbp677 on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 16:38:00)
Love kindle. The improvements in IOS8 are smart and useful. Amazon's ebook selection cannot be beat. App performs well. Except... On iPhone 6. There is something wrong with the scaling. Text is blurry and it ruins the kindle experience. Kindle team: please see this review and others and get on this.
Great App. (by drumgrl on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 15:26:00)
I have a whole library in this app. Most of my books are in this app. And I use it daily.
Great app (by Emmie80555 on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 09:36:00)
Love that I can sync my purchased amazon books on my kindle device w my iPhone and Mac so I can read them on whatever device I choose.
Annoying popups taking half the screen (by Shapstock on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 07:23:00)
I am really frustrated with latest Kindle for iPad. Every time when trying to highlight something, it brings up 2 popups one for dictionary definition and another one for Wikipedia search. These popups take about half of the screen and sometimes span outside of the screen. There seems to be no way to disable them. It is unbelievable how inconvenient can Amazon make a simple book reading app. Just unbelievable...
Love it! (by Stecman72 on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 06:12:00)
Use it everyday. User friendly!

iOS 8 bugs (by Overhj01 on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 18:37:00)
Of course I love the Kindle app! But it crashes a lot with the new iOS 8 update.
Problem since upgrading to ios 8 on iPad (by DonneeDarko on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 16:42:00)
Kindle crashes when first opening. On second attempt it opens but not to the last place in last book read. It opens to the library.

iOS 8 update (by JBL92411 on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:00:00)
I have the iPhone 5sand with the new new software update, my kindle app crashes when I click on a book that I want. I don't want to have to delete the app and redownload my books. Please help!!!!
Top eBook app (by joberschmidt on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 13:30:00)
This is a great app for reading. It has everything you could want or need from an app. Not to mention that this app is bolstered by Amazon's huge collection. I'm renting my 1st Semester school books through Amazon. But sadly, only three of the five books could be rented on the Kindle. It would have been nice if all the books were in eBook format.
Not as good as iBooks (by Wordlea on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 12:42:00)
1. you can't download a book from the app. 2. You can't see where you are in the chapter. iBooks tells you how many pages are left in the chapter. The last book I read on kindle told me how many minutes to read the chapter. really??? 3. The lighting and look of the page is not as defined and clear as iBook. 4. The only good thing about the kindle app is it's cheaper to buy a book. But it is really not worth the difference in enjoyable reading.
Great app (by nikkycedes on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 12:02:00)
Works great on my 5c. I've been rereading classics lately. The only thing I would mention is sometimes the app would forget what page I was on, and I would have to flip forward a few pages before settling in. But that's not a huge deal.
Wow (by waltband on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 10:49:00)
Been using the Kindle Reading app on my iphone since it became available - one of the best apps of all time -- very easy to use -- it's a great tool to discover new books and authors at dirt cheap prices (many free books) - Whispersync is very quick and reliable when downloading books
Amazing content, mediocre UI (by clowntsunami on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 06:50:00)
First off: this is the definitive way to read books not on paper, and for that the Kindle team deserves a ton of credit. However, as a software product manager and lover of books... For something that has been out for so long, why are you so difficult to use?!? First, there are lots of unintuitive experiences, like returning to a page after thumbing back to a previous chapter or something before the index. And second, why is it so hard to view and organize my collection the way I want to?!? Anyone who loves books will have tons of them on their shelves, and Kindle's software makes it really hard to organize them the way I want to. Collections are ok, but I can't just drag stuff between collections? Really? Do you have a bookshelf at home? Is it this hard to organize? Anyway, I love books and this is the best way to read any given book, but for managing a collection of books, you all have some serious work to do.
Love the app'!!! (by betsycakes on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 06:48:00)

Scaling (by la_listen on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 06:45:00)

I love the kindle app for my iPad! It keeps all my books handy
Page turning glitch- help! (by Sut1717 on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 04:46:00)
I love this app and only use my iPad and kindle app to read. The latest version, however, is very distracting because the page turning is not smooth like before but very jerky. Please, please fix. For someone that reads a lot this is very distracting! Thanks!!
Problems with the new iOS 8 update. (by Phoenix101573 on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 04:43:00)
This is one of my favorite apps but since the update while I'm in the middle of reading I frequently shuts the app off. I go and restart it, read for a bit and it will happen again. Never had that happens before. If you could fix that it would be back to being perfect. Thanks for listening.
Great App!! (by BobbyJohn65 on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 04:39:00)
I have been a kindle app user on all my devices (I pad, I Pad mini, And Kindle. Very easy to use with minimal operational issues. Will continue to be a kindle user.
Was good... Before ios 8 (by App junkie 3000 on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 03:11:00)
Page turning is terrible now (just updated to iOS 8). Not only is it jerky as others have mentioned, but I when turning pages I get two different fonts on the same page. Horrible.
Love Kindle (by SilviaToo on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 02:57:00)
This app is so easy to use! I love my Kindle app. Makes buying books a snap! Couldn't live without it! Well, I could but life would be miserable without it now that I have it!
Easy Reading (by Catsluvr on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 02:17:00)
So far this app works perfectly for reading on my phone. I have been reading voraciously since getting it.
Good App. (by lwaren on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 02:08:00)
One of the best ereader apps on the field. Hundreds of free books, PDFs and docs to read.
Why I like the kindle (by Chiquita ay on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 01:26:00)
I like the fact that I can download very easily to different devices. I am able to use my local library thru the kindle to borrow books. Being able to enlarge the font is very helpful.
iPad app the best of the Kindle apps (by Art's Tart on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 01:25:00)
I manage my collections on my iPad. This feature is far better than the ones written for the iPhone or Kindle Fire. They are clunky and not user friendly at all. I would read on my iPad but it is just too heavy. 😞
Love it (by Texaswitch on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 01:07:00)
I use the app on iPhone 5s and am a fan. It is wonderful

I love the ability to take many books with me all the time. Any time I have to wait - doctors office, etc, I have a library full of books to keep me company.
My app is stuck installing! (by Almassi79 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 23:29:00)
I can't open it or delete it! This a new iPhone!
My books are at the tap of my finger (by Lindajb14 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 23:23:00)
I love reading every chance I get and having my books handy is the greatest! On my phone, or my iPad as well as the Kindle White Paper, I have all my books handy at the touch of a finger. Home or traveling my get away time from the world, it's always handy.
Devine (by kylexy4ever on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 23:07:00)
This app is my favorite one it's perfect! And they have so many free books and not just crappy ones. So happy with this app
Kindle (by rlervin on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 21:08:00)
What a life saver on the plane each week!
Interface worse (by Vik day on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 20:41:00)
Hard to scroll throughout books with placeholder at bottom. Stupid added feature that makes it harder to read
Great App (by Ryssa on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 20:17:00)
I love this app!! It makes reading multiple books convenient and easy. I especially like the ability to change font size.
Page-turn Animation problems (by Arden66 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 19:13:00)
This update has a bug during the page-turn process. The text resizes during the turn of the pages. Very annoying!
Newest update glitch (by Pixiefce9 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 18:13:00)
There is a small glitch in my newest version of Kindle. Jerky page turning with pages of the book showing up in a different script. It goes away almost immediately but is very annoying.
The only way to read (by Heavnscent on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 18:06:00)
Who needs paper? I can access my entire library of books everywhere I go. And I can check out titles from my local library and read them in the app. I've been using this app for at least seven years and it's still the best.
iPhone 6+ Support (by Readerread on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 17:52:00)
Obligatory 1 star review until the app is updated to support the iPhone 6 Plus. I have not forgotten the ridiculously long delay to add support for the retina MacBook Pro. (18 months?). Redeem yourselves, Amazon.
Absolutely love my kindle app (by Mom2boys0710 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 17:34:00)
I can not tell you how much I enjoy the kindle app it allows my kids to play games on my kindle and I can read my books I love that there are tons of free books and I usually get hooked enough in series I buy to I love all the new features as well
Needs better typography controls (by Ndusvrkm on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 16:49:00)
I love being able to read on my phone. But I wish the app allowed me to turn off justification. It would improve readability greatly. The variable spacing between words hurts this former typographer's eyes. It seems odd to improve the typefaces, but no other aspect of the reading experience.
Help Needed! (by Zoemischa on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 16:14:00)
Since updating to iOS8, Kindle no longer works! I've shutdown & restarted the iPad a few times thinking that will help, but it has not.
Fantastic App (by Rmorgan2 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 16:13:00)
The latest improvements and refinements have made reading a real joy. Now I can copy paragraphs and use them to send yo friends or create a report. Everything is so easy to use. I've never would have imagined reading so many books as I have since getting my first kindle from my wife for Christmas.
Used Daily (by Rivalsan on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 15:29:00)
I use the Kindle app on my iPhone and iPad every day. Love it!
Kindle on OS8 (by Starzynski on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 14:33:00)
Much improved. My various "I" reading preference. Still haven't figured out how to return to my page after checking an end note.
Works (by Rich Arnold on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 14:01:00)
I'm not sure if there are any notable improvements necessary. Thanx
Reasonably solid (by Doder0001 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 12:35:00)
Downloads if books can take a while, but overall pretty good.
Great reader (by Boston_Jazz on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 11:15:00)
I like reading books on my kindle app for iPad and iPhone. I never read physical books anymore and both buy ebooks and borrow them from my library. Thank you amazon for great reads
With update on iOS8, punctuation missing or out of place (by RightOnTarget1 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 09:49:00)
I have a problem with the new update under iOS8. I am working through a book on programming with Objective C. With the new update, -,+,*,/ characters are missing or moved out of place in the text. It makes it very difficult to use. Also, I can read this book on my Kindle, iPhone, and iPad. The Kindle app on my Mac says the book is incompatible. Why?

Update for iPhone 6 plus fast. (by B3815 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 05:38:00)
I know it's a lot to ask on day 1, but of all apps this one definitely needs to be expedited for an update to optimize for the iPhone 6 plus screen (and presumably the iPhone 6 as well). As of now, the text and layout is awful. I am a big fan of the kindle hardware and software, and the paperwhite (perhaps a voyager soon...) is my regular reader. But one of the great things about kindle books is they can be read anywhere on just about anything. Time to burn the midnight oil, sorry...
Lookelu (by Lookelu on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 03:38:00)
The app is great. I use this app on all my devices, own three kindles. Adding the ability to return books (borrowed books) from app would make this awesome.
Love Kindle! (by Perfent on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 02:31:00)
I use the Kindle app much more than iBooks. I'm just getting used to the update but so far I enjoy the improvements.
Luv it (by Msnynatalie on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 01:40:00)
A very cool reading app
Page Turning Animation Broken (by Kf104 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 01:39:00)
Have LOVED this app since I got my iPad 2 several years ago. But the latest update (9/18/14) has allowed a bug in the page turning. Now each page resizes (enlarges, even) and jumps before turning. I read where others having the problem had to turn off their "animation" option for page turning and that did solve the problem. But it makes the "animation" of page turning non-existant.
Love this app (by Indomk on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 01:14:00)
This has to be my favorite app I have. I love being able to read no matter where I am
Kindle is hard to beat (by Joe the editor on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 00:32:00)
I've been reading from my original Kindle since two months after the Kindle was introduced. I've never had to replace a battery nor have I had any other problem. I've read books that I probably would never have read otherwise. I've also had Kindle books on iPhones, iPads, PC's, iPod Touch and iMac.
Love my Kindle App (by BKOzz13 on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 00:07:00)
Don't know how I ever lived without this app. Now my books are always with me right on my phone. No more carrying around bulky books or an extra device.
Love the App -one glitch (by Dfen911 on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 23:29:00)
Since the release of iOS8 and updating the app, page turning is jerky. When I tap to turn the previous page shows on the left 1/2" for just a flash then the new page settles in. This app is the only one I use to read with now. Being able to highlight, define, share snipers makes app very functional. The fonts are very crisp no fuzziness. Well done guys!
Great simple app (by Nicole Nicole Nicoles on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 23:20:00)
Slick interface and convenient reader behaviors (swipe/tap to turn page, dictionary, sync, search, etc)
Copy/paste (by Nina Haliburton on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 22:24:00)
Hi, I've just updated my kindle app on iPad, was super excited to find out it's has the ability to copy and paste...... But I can't figure out how to do it. Will someone help me please 😳... I attempted to do it a couple of times and when I highlighted the passages I wanted to copy, it flashed COPIED... I can't find where it's copied to!! So that I can paste it to an email, document, text...SMH. HELP PLEASE...thank you
Kindle (by Okdevinboss on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 22:17:00)
It's an alright app. It needs to be sped up tho. I like the dictionary feature.
Retina for iPhone 6 (by mageeitunes on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 21:25:00)
I just got my iPhone 6 and noticed that the clarity of the books and texts in my kindle app is not as clear as in my iPhone 5. Could you please have a look and improve if possible. Kindle is my favorite app and I get all my books from you. Thanks
Looks TERRIBLE on iPhone 6 Plus (by Gen. K. Whale on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 13:18:00)
This app is not updated to support the new screen so it upscales the graphics. This works okay for non-text-intensive apps, but it literally gives a headache within a couple pages of reading on the high res 5.5" screen.
Controls are missing in audio function. (by Judi Rae on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 13:13:00)
It's a little hard to listen to an audio book when the controls are missing. Open the book, it syncs fine to my kindle, click the headphones, and the only thing there is the book cover. It will play if I happen to guess the right location of the play button, but come on I shouldn't have to guess where the buttons should be.
Thankful for update (by Study help on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 02:53:00)
Thank you for the update. I have begun using a kindle more for school work because I am now able to highlight passages and share them through the copy/paste feature, which is newly added. This has made electronic note-taking and outlining a breeze!!!
Kindles of any Kind! (by alittlebitofBS on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 02:13:00)
I started reading "books" on an early Kindle about 6 or 7 years ago. Them about a year and a half ago I got my first iPhone (4). More recently I upgraded to a 5s. Despite the smaller screen I love the Kindle app. And now with IOS 8 there are even more features to love. My only request is that I be able to purchase a sample directly from the app.
Not downloading (by AshKBow on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 00:40:00)
I didn't even want to give this one star, it's been downloading since 7am this morning and it's still installing. I can't delete the app to re-download it or anything! :(
Still Needs Immersion reading with real-time highlighting (by N/A 1234 on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 00:39:00)
When will Immersion reading **with real-time highlighting** be available like it is on the kindle? You've only implemented half of the immersion feature..
I won't finish installing! (by kathelyze trejo on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 00:35:00)
I don't know what's wrong with this update, it won't finish installing! Please fix it because I want to continue reading my books!
Sync button (by ScottB_37 on Fri, 19 Sep 2014 00:26:00)
Sync function not nearly as good as you think it is. Please put the sync button back on the nav bar.
Content across devices: the way it should be (by Clavius Frederic Earbrass on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 23:47:00)
The looming advantage Amazon has over Apple with ebooks is being able to view and sync content over multiple devices. Only minor complaint about the app is that with the black background for bed reading, the table of contents and footnotes are in an unreadable blue font.
Where is continuous scrolling? (by Saropilot on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 23:36:00)
Key feature missing for me is continuous scrolling. Should be simple enough and been in iBooks for a while now.
So aggravated (by J_Med on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 22:11:00)
I'm very disappointed with this app! How come I can't buy a book?! All I'm able to do is read the sample and that is very frustrating esp when you read the sample and get sucked in!
Weird new Version (by Seatacflughafen on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 21:48:00)
The latest update has some weird effect going on when you flip the page. It is sort of hard on the eyes with the strange effect. They should put it back the old way which was simple and nice.
Where's the dictation? (by INamaste on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 20:17:00)
This recent version is missing narration.
HORRIBLE (by southernbell6237 on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 20:12:00)
App continues to shut itself off! I can't read half a word before it turns off.
Where did my Kindle app go?! (by Lovin24 on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 19:15:00)
After update on 9-18-14 Kindle disappeared from my iPad Air! I did agree to the terms & conditions, did update then it left town,
Can't use the app peacefully (by Chickendrummies on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 18:51:00)
For the most part, the app works as intended--an eReader. However, the user experience that comes with it is quite lacking, namely the "Before you go..." dialogue screen, which prompts a user to rate a book, share with others, and advertise. That dialogue screen pops up way too often, and reflects poorly on the company to pester users to provide feedback, share, or be bombarded with advertisements. You want some user feedback? Well, here it is.
Page Turn Animation Problems (by Aannonn on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 18:04:00)
Never had a problem with this app 'til today. Always used page turn animation. Downloaded the update. Now the page resizes for a second as it turns, which gives a very strange and annoying effect. With animation turned off, no problem, but I like the animation! Please fix.
Great!! (by Mmmybabe on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 16:22:00)
I would really like to have a way to organize the books I have. Like all of the recipe books in their own category as well as sci-fi, romance, historical, etc. it would make looking for what I want much easier to find.
Fabulous!!!! (by MASmeinezeit on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 16:53:00)
One of the best apps you could ever get.
yay (by Bugreportter on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 16:43:00)
best reading app in iOS
Awesome!😄 (by Maddogg1 on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:41:00)
This app is great for homework if you have to read of course. There is so many books to choose! So ya! Plz enjoy this great app!
Could be better (by lesliesorum on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:38:00)
I really wish this app had text to speak
Love the widget (by paulhimes on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:20:00)
It's very handy. Great idea.
Even better! (by FieryMaid on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:10:00)
I own a Kindle, but use the app on my phone when I'm not at home and still want to read. Thank you for the copy passages into email/text messages option!
Copy? How? (by Rott lady on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 12:48:00)
I was excited to read that the Kindle update was going to give me the capability to copy and paste passages into emails, etc. But I sure can't figure out how. The only options I get for sharing are still Facebook and Twitter. What gives?
Author Name was invisible at first (by suecqueue on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 10:00:00)
First, thank you for the nice changes to the app, such as multiple open books. The Kinlde for iOS app continues to be the best reading app available on iOS or any other platform, including Kinlde Fires. When I first opened the app, the author names on home pages were shown as black type on a dark grey background. After cycling through the sort orders on both grid and list modes, force quitting and restarting the app, the authors' names are again in white font. I loaded the app when only the Apps store was open, so I don't think it was caused by cross app interaction.
Update (by Emmanuel Ezra on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 08:57:00)
New update; huge improvements! Thank you for listening to your clients. Own a business myself and know that the 'complementers' represent a larger group of people. Keep it up!!
Amazon store (by DaniF92 on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 07:00:00)
I'm not sure if the feature is available, but it would be awesome if the app had a way to access the store without having to do it from links in the books.
Annoying!! (by leyla's mac on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 06:44:00)
I thought that the problem with being only able to get samples was going to get fixed with this update, but no... This update is just a waste of time and energy!
Requires opening twice each (by BigJason on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 05:26:00)
I love using the app but it currently crashes every time I open it. Hoped this version would fix it, but still does the same thing.
Frustrated (by Oops34567 on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 03:23:00)
Will not finish installing, just hangs there. Rebooted my IPad twice to no avail.
Love this app (by Pasta salad1234567891011 on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 02:58:00)
I really love the kindle app. I have it on all of my devices I just wish I could move the books around the way I want them and put them in groups together
Separating family member books (by hoollyy on Thu, 18 Sep 2014 01:45:00)
My child likes to read from my kindle app, but I'm always afraid he'll try and see what my books are about...and he's not old enough to read them. Can y'all come up with a way to make it multi family and kids can only access what adults allow? Thanks so much!!
Thumbs up ;) (by imohy.michelon.adul on Wed, 17 Sep 2014 19:11:00)
It's perfect good app
Great App! Thanks! (by G3NERATIONKILL on Wed, 17 Sep 2014 12:37:00)
It works perfect every time. Thanks!!!
Okay, but could be better (by Jeffrey Devey on Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:47:00)
Needs to have an option to make text justified to the left with a ragged right margin. Doesn't allow you to change from full-justification.
Buy via iPhone?? (by Erock Shun on Wed, 17 Sep 2014 04:21:00)
If you have an iPhone app, you need to be able to offer books for purchase. What's the point of having an iPhone app if you don't offer books to be purchased through the iPhone app?? Pretty lame you don't offer that.

Great App; fix the highlighting (by Williamschaerer899 on Sun, 14 Sep 2014 21:06:00)
Use the app and it is wonderful. However, in some recent update, the highlighting now fades out the text.
Disappointed after update (by Angel mutt on Sun, 14 Sep 2014 14:55:00)
I have always loved the Kindle apps on my iPhone & iPad, but since the update they won't sync. When I go out I don't take the iPad with me but if I have to wait somewhere or stop to eat, I can continue reading on the iPhone. Now I have to remember to check the location on the iPad before I Leave home or I end up having to scroll through pages to find where I left off. So disappointing.
One more step to perfection... (by Bagestic2 on Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:49:00)
An amazing app for bookworms. Thanks to Amazon and the developers here we have all an extensive reader needs except for one or two features which are really missed in this app. You are not able to copy an excerpt which makes no sense at all even if it is for the sake of the copyright. The other thing that is really bothering is that there's no page number, there's just this weird number at the bottom of the page and it is of no use at all.
Not compatible with ipod touch (by xxxEva on Sun, 14 Sep 2014 02:02:00)
When trying to read a book I purchased on my ipod touch 5g, I get "Unavailable for download, the item is not compatible with this device," even though it is stated to be compatible in the description.
Great app (by Marilyn Bell on Sat, 13 Sep 2014 20:49:00)
I love this app and couldn't live without it! :-). I use both the iPhone & iPad version. I love to read and can always pickup where I left off on either device. I also use audible but haven't tried the sync with that but intend on trying it out.
Kindle for my iPod and other devices. (by Jasry56 on Sat, 13 Sep 2014 11:29:00)
I read most of the time on my iPod touch. I use kindle app the most because the book selection is great. I don't like carry kindle Device, it just a little heavy therefore it's convenient to use iPod with this app. Great idea!
MAJOR black option issues (by SashaBrennan on Sat, 13 Sep 2014 08:20:00)
When I use the black background color mode, many words are not showing up. I have to turn it on sepia or white in order to read the book. This is extremely annoying when I am trying to read at night or trying to avoid gaining a headache from the glare of a white screen. PLEASE FIX ASAP.
...? (by prettyinink0402 on Sat, 13 Sep 2014 04:53:00)
I just upgraded to an iphone5s & I can't even download the app!
Horrible! (by southernbell6237 on Fri, 12 Sep 2014 17:26:00)
Every time I open the app it shuts my iPad down, freezes, reboots the app, or does nothing at all. Wish I would've know all this before I rented all my semester books via kindle editions! Will never be able to read my books.
It's ok (by skreesha5 on Fri, 12 Sep 2014 14:15:00)
It's a functional ereader tht could really use more customization options to put more text on the screen, faster syncing that doesn't obscure the screen, and the ability to use a bilingual dictionary.
The new update has locked up my app (by C235 on Fri, 12 Sep 2014 02:35:00)
My iPad is unable to load the update and has locked everything up.
This app is awesome (by Gh kk on Wed, 10 Sep 2014 22:51:00)
I looked at like 10 apps to find a book that I had to retread and wanted audio but non of them had it except for this awesome app I totally recommend it
Defective highlighting feature (by 3lisab3th on Wed, 10 Sep 2014 02:01:00)
Please fix the highlighting feature, it makes the text almost invisible.

i wanna ask why i just could read some chapters 1 2 3 but the 9 10 11,... didn't load?
Disappointed (by Patsy44 on Tue, 09 Sep 2014 00:58:00)
I am very disappointed in this app my daughter has the first gen. iPad and she can not use this app because she doesn't have iOS 6 or later. You should re release this app for the people that have the older iOS so that way they can enjoy the kindle app as well. She like to read as much as I do. So if you could please release this app for the older version so she can download books that she is interested in. And I am pretty sure that other people would agree with me on this. So if you could please think of the people that still use the older IOS so they can enjoy this app as well. PLEASE
Annoyed (by Puzzled................ on Sun, 07 Sep 2014 05:58:00)
So, nott sure if it's the actual app or where I purchased my ebook from, but there are missing sentences and I know this for a fact because I have the hard copy of the book. I bought the complete set of Harry Potter from pottermore.com and downloaded it to my kindle app. I've deleted the book and redownloaded it like the forum said but it doesn't work, and there a TON of missing sentences, like almost every single page has something missing. It's so annoying, I mean I have the hard copies but the whole point of the kindle is to be able to bring all your books with you on the go. I really wish the Harry Potter books were on iBooks because they seem to have their stuff together! I bought the Twilight series on that app and so far I haven't seen any mistakes in those books. I'm going to bring this up with the website I bought Harry Potter from, but please figure out if this on the kindle end. I really want to read these books again without having to bring out the hard copies.
Great App (by Dualage on Sat, 06 Sep 2014 05:21:00)
It could be more seamless with the Amazon store, and I would like to see a smarter recommendations engine, but the app works great just the same.
Petty good but Audible problems... (by rjpcikle on Sat, 06 Sep 2014 00:25:00)
This app is great. I keep reading with my Paperwhite and my iPhone and the whispersync feature works really well. I am glad the app finally got Audible integration, but I wish the integration was a little bit tighter. I have some Audible books that I'd like to just hear through the Kindle app that aren't reading companions. Also, finding reading companions is still a little wonky. You have to scroll through what appears to be a random sorting of your Kindle books. It would be nice to have one or all of the following options to make this a little easier to find Audio companions: 1. Alphabet on the side. 2. Sort by author/title option like in the library portion of the app. 3. Search bar Keep up the good work with the app so far.
Great for school (by Wolf_girl1981 on Fri, 05 Sep 2014 01:41:00)

No number pages shown at the bottom (by EL Verdugo 666 on Thu, 04 Sep 2014 19:42:00)
I'm giving 1 star because No number pages are shown at the bottom. Fix that and will change it to a 5 star!!!!
Decent App (by Purplekross on Thu, 04 Sep 2014 05:44:00)
Why can't I purchase books from this app??
How?!?! (by Cadina Antonia on Thu, 04 Sep 2014 05:33:00)
How do you make the account because I have been trying for 3 years and it won't let me use it
Practical (by Dcost001 on Wed, 03 Sep 2014 19:49:00)
Practical and easy to use
I miss Google... (by Red010608130302 on Wed, 03 Sep 2014 04:29:00)
I enjoy the app. Some suggestions that I've read, like better organization in your library, would be nice, but here's my current biggest wish: bring back the Google option when highlighting a word or phrase! If it's not in Wikipedia, I'd like to be able to do a web search for whatever I've highlighted. As an example, I see a quote from Shakespeare embedded in the novel I'm reading. I'd like to be able to highlight the quote and do a web search, where the first result would tell me which play the quote is from, but instead, all I can do is see that the quote isn't in Wikipedia. No surprise there; it's thirteen words long! At the very least, I'd appreciate the ability to copy the phrase, so I can then open up my own browser window and paste it to search for it.
Not available??? (by JodiLatt on Wed, 03 Sep 2014 02:15:00)
I have tried every way possible but the App Store says this is NO LONGER AVAILABLE... Not good :(
Suggestion (by Hinnegan on Tue, 02 Sep 2014 23:18:00)
This app is functional in the ways that are advertised, however, I find it an inconvenience that users cannot buy entire books from this app. If possible, please make this change in the near future.
Works well (by Ghenley on Tue, 02 Sep 2014 22:35:00)
This app works as expected and syncs between my iPhone and iPad keeping me up to date with my reading.
Why are they all Samples can you not get full books (by ToxicTrav321 on Tue, 02 Sep 2014 21:19:00)
Can you get full books are do you have to play for them

Amazing app!! Worth the money!!
Piece of Crap (by Kidd20110 on Tue, 02 Sep 2014 02:20:00)
Don't get it. Not worth your time. Complete waist. Just go to Amazon. Hopefully they get shut down soon.
Love it but it needs a couple of things. (by July4Patriot on Mon, 01 Sep 2014 14:58:00)
Love the kindle app but I would suggest two updates. Allow us to make purchases directly from the app and allow us to easily access book reviews from the app. Thanks.
Love it, but... (by BlueFlameAlchemist on Mon, 01 Sep 2014 04:57:00)
Sometimes crashes. Please fix

Good app. I like it. Get it.
Best book platform ecosystem, app could use investment (by AntonioRodriguez on Sun, 31 Aug 2014 21:37:00)
It is great to be on the amazon platform for books. This app is solid and reliable and makes reading on ios devices very pleasant. One thing: background sync of latest page read is an absolute must in this day and age.
Annoying!! (by Reymago on Sun, 31 Aug 2014 19:59:00)
this app is painfully annoying! the advertising at the end of the book, and the before you go stuff is absurd. I read my book, and it was the worst experience in reading I've ever had.
Not bad (by jose revelo on Sun, 31 Aug 2014 15:48:00)
Simple, fast, nice interface.
Great for night-time reading! (by TwinBoysMomWendy on Sun, 31 Aug 2014 06:28:00)
I love the Kindle app because I have an older generation Kindle that is not lit. It's great for reading during the day, but using it at night is hard. I have a clip on light, but it's awkward if I'm reading in bed. My hubby is an early bird and I hate to keep him up with a lamp. The ability to use my low-light iPhone is the perfect solution. Very happy with this app!
USEFUL (by Bi357 on Sun, 31 Aug 2014 05:24:00)
You know what... If you are student, i highly recommend this app. It almost has every book which are required by university or college. And it will save your money.
Update stops downloads (by Mlmeahan on Sun, 31 Aug 2014 01:25:00)
Update wiped my app of the books I was using and now won't let me redownload them. Tried to find help, but could only send a message. I used to live on this app, I feel like I just lost my best friend.
App stuck upside down (by Mikethefiddler on Sat, 30 Aug 2014 16:40:00)
Works but is stuck upside down. I have latest version of iOS on iPhone 5c
Underlining is annoying (by Not okay on Sat, 30 Aug 2014 07:40:00)
I love this app. It's easy and it saves me from having to use my kindle if I'm out somewhere. The only annoying part is it shows the sections that other people underlined in the book. I don't ever underline in my books and I really don't care if 7 other people I don't know underlined something. If it was friends you know maybe I'd deal with it but it's people I don't know. Like I said I love the app but it would be so much better if there was at least an option where you could get rid of seeing what other people underlined.
Bring back support for first Gen iPad (by AnnoyedDeveloper on Fri, 29 Aug 2014 02:48:00)
The first generation iPad may not be good for much anymore (some people will disagree and that's fine), but it's still PERFECTLY FINE for reading ebooks! I would never have uninstalled this app from my iPad if I had known that an update would prevent me from EVER INSTALLING IT AGAIN! I am, however, extremely disappointed that this is even an issue. The first generation iPad is NOT CAPABLE of being updated to iOS 6 ( I have tried!), yet the developers or their bosses have seemingly set their build target to iOS 6 and left me out in the cold. I've probably bought hundreds of dollars worth of ebooks from Amazon over the years and will most definitely buy more, so I don't deserve this kind of treatment. I use this app all the time on my iPhone 5 and I love it, but COME ON! It's and e-reader for heaven's sake! It could probably run on the very first version of iOS that supported third party apps! I'm not asking for that but at least support the highest version of iOS available for first generation iPads. I'm on iOS 5.1.1, which is as high as I can go! SURELY they can support iOS 5.1.1 at least!!!! I will change my review if they do.
Not good enough (by Reymago on Thu, 28 Aug 2014 01:56:00)
Why don't you use the built in dictionaries? why should I have to download one from your servers? why I can't copy text? why are there only 4 colors to highlight? this app is annoying
I love this app (by Rose0308 on Thu, 28 Aug 2014 01:52:00)
I have no problems with it. It's very simple to use.
"Operation not supported" (by Brian Wirth on Wed, 27 Aug 2014 23:49:00)
I have had this app for long time and the only complaint I really have is if I download a sample and at the end want to purchase the book when I click "Buy Now", I get the above error message. Come on Amazon, it's been long enough. Fix it already.
Excellent app (by jram0623 on Wed, 27 Aug 2014 22:00:00)
Great app, very useful!
Kindle App (by Tassyraye on Wed, 27 Aug 2014 09:01:00)
I really do like the way I can access my books from anywhere but I find one thing would make it perfect. If I finish a book and want to buy another, it would be good to do so while in the app. There should be away to do so. Having to go into a browser or find a computer detracts from the app ease of use and my customer experience.
Excellent APP (by Caleb Mbakwe on Wed, 27 Aug 2014 05:42:00)

Highlighting Everything (by AmBrWvS on Tue, 26 Aug 2014 20:07:00)
Wouldn't it be really nice to be able have option to highlight anything I open in Kindle ? Whenever I receive an option from Safari app to "open in iBook or open Kindle, I'd like to highlight as I do with purchased books.
Placeholders (by nvLE on Tue, 26 Aug 2014 06:20:00)
I have Always used the Kindle for iPhone app. And I think if just keeps getting better and better. The one thing I hate is the placeholders! There is no way to skim through using the progress bar at the bottom because of the stupid placeholder dots! If two of them are half an inch apart it just keeps bouncing between the two and not going in between! I have to go page by page to find what I'm looking for. I have only ever written a review twice before. This is my third time and I have had an iPhone since the first gen iPhone. That's to show just how much I HATE the stupid placeholder dots on the progress bar!! Plz remove them or make it easier to use the progress bar without getting stuck bouncing from one placeholder to another. Thank you.
Love it (by Lololololol45 on Tue, 26 Aug 2014 03:06:00)
I read so many more books because of this app!
Ok but please read (by Yoyotrick123 on Tue, 26 Aug 2014 01:08:00)
This is a good app except it is very hard to use because it's too sensitive and it always goes to the next page then when I go back I skip the page when I finally make it to the right page all the words are in the wrong place so I have to read a lot of it over again I suggest there should be a setting for buttons on the side of the screen
Amazon Kindle app for iPhone is a Great app (by Brenda D Williams on Mon, 25 Aug 2014 18:34:00)
Love it! It has gotten me into reading again.
Perfect, except for... (by Chyleppr on Mon, 25 Aug 2014 10:31:00)
I would like to see a short summary of each of my books within the the Kindle app. ( I don't want to have to go back to Amazon to see the book summary...that is too tedious.) I have many books and often can't remember exactly what the book is about.
Love this app (by Ljs62-63 on Mon, 25 Aug 2014 07:09:00)
I read a lot, but what happened to the text to speech? My husband is legally blind, and enjoys a good book. Did it change with the new up date?
Great, but... (by Zoe Hamnet on Mon, 25 Aug 2014 01:19:00)
This app is great! But what would be great is audio reading! Could you add that in the next update?
Disappointed (by Jaylaharris on Sun, 24 Aug 2014 21:56:00)
I would like this app if u could perchance books and read them but I can on get the sample so I will be deleting
No Syncing Between iPad and iPhone (by obsidian78 on Sun, 24 Aug 2014 19:05:00)
This used to be a good app. However, after the updates, the app will not sync between the iPad and iPhone apps. Very irritating when you are reading a book >:( Please fix this ASAP!!!
Super cool (by ontemp on Sun, 24 Aug 2014 12:48:00)
One of the best apps I've ever used on an iphone.

Can't log in (by Emilymer on Sun, 24 Aug 2014 00:25:00)
It tells me I don't have an account, and all the help link does is say you have to have an amazon account, which I have prime. Useless.
This is cool (by anjas apriadi on Sat, 23 Aug 2014 16:00:00)
Good app no problems so far I'm satisfied...
Textured paper (by Cheryl_B on Sat, 23 Aug 2014 13:36:00)
The Kindle app is functional and does what it claims. This is a request that you add a feature that would allow for the user to choose a textured background in a few different colors - soft, natural colors like real paper. It would help ease the glare problem.
Books! (by Fausron on Sat, 23 Aug 2014 12:36:00)
It's an app I'm about to use more often because all the books I have from my kindle I can read them from this device as well.
Kindle -reading (by Aaron Clements on Sat, 23 Aug 2014 12:28:00)
I really love the reading app can Amazon make the app have access to the kindle store. Thank you
It's great! (by Amy Murphy22 on Fri, 22 Aug 2014 21:00:00)

Please add a zoom (by MaddieKG on Fri, 22 Aug 2014 20:55:00)
Please add the ability to keep your book zoomed out. Reading in landscape on my iPad is annoying because of the large text.
Needs to update (by marleneyou ☪♡ on Fri, 22 Aug 2014 20:15:00)
I hate that I can't buy books from the app, they need to add this on the app asap!!!!!
Text books? (by DARKDECLINE on Fri, 22 Aug 2014 19:26:00)
Doesn't seem to work for text books. At least for me it didn't. :-(
Excellent app!!! (by Cuddlylolipop on Fri, 22 Aug 2014 10:26:00)
Way to easy! Great app!
Book return (by Theprincess99998 on Thu, 21 Aug 2014 08:11:00)
I was using Kindle to read books on loan from Overdrive but found that I am unable to return them. Now my library card is blocked so I cannot get any more books. This stinks! Please fix this.
It's great!! (by Pkvwj on Thu, 21 Aug 2014 05:08:00)
I love it. I think the only time it ever shut me out was two or three times. Otherwise it works fine. I have all my books and can read them whenever and wherever. Great app!
Fix this bug please! (by KristDeLyn on Thu, 21 Aug 2014 04:35:00)
I love my Kindle app. I have hundreds of books. I use it on my iPhone, iPad and my Mac. All are running the latest OS/iOS. When viewing content on my phone, no matter what I do, it's in landscape orientation. Please fix this. I know it's not my device. I troubleshoot Apple products -that's my job.
Good App (by Momdiggity77 on Thu, 21 Aug 2014 04:26:00)
Love the app. Use it much more than iBooks. BUT the hilighters are very pale & ugly, unlike the vibrant colors of iBooks. Also want to be able to copy & paste from the book.
PlaceHolder Perfection. (by Grovethang on Thu, 21 Aug 2014 03:42:00)
The placeholder functionality now makes the kindle app superior to paper textbooks. Period. It makes the Ipad my school tool.

Useful, But Syncing Feature Rarely Works (by jdd32005 on Wed, 20 Aug 2014 14:38:00)
I like using the Kindle app, but the app is rarely able to sync to the furthest-read page from my actual Kindle device. I always have to type in the furthest-read location manually. Please fix the syncing feature on future versions.
Deleting already read books (by Brooklynvbrown on Wed, 20 Aug 2014 13:51:00)
The only bad thing about this app is that you can't delete books that you've already read.
Kindle Reading App (by Janice Griffin on Wed, 20 Aug 2014 04:16:00)
An outstanding app. I use it on a Kindle device, an IPad, IPhone, and a Macintosh computer. The app is convenient, and works on all modern computers and tablets. One of the best features is the ability to automatically save the last page read to the Kindle web server. If you have read to, say, page 490 on one device and later to page 500 on another, when reading is resumed on the first device it will present a dialog offering you the option of going to page 500. And should you happen to accidentally go to some page further on, you can clear the "last page read" by going to a Kindle website. Another great feature is builtin Wikipedia support. Five stars.
Good App (by LarkinMaui on Wed, 20 Aug 2014 01:13:00)
I like the Kindle app and have switched from my Kindle to using the app on my iPad so I don't need to carry two devices as I use the iPad for work frequently. I did notice that I can't share titles with other Kindle Owners just using the app, would love to see that changed. Thank you for giving me a great way to carry my library with me on one device.
Doesn't Work on iPad 4 (by bsandoe on Wed, 20 Aug 2014 00:45:00)
It is downloaded to the iPad. When I attempt to launch the app it asks me to sign into Amazon. Fine. - I use Amazon all the time. Problem is it tells me I don't exist. More trouble than its worth but for the book I want. This is far too complicated for a stupid little app.
Sync is broken (by Musson on Tue, 19 Aug 2014 20:54:00)
At best I must manually sync, sometimes it says the farthest page read is less then the current page and wants to sync to an earlier point. Really messed up. Using iPhone 5 and ipad air. Don't you test this stuff first?
Needs More Features (by Marcia Blanco on Tue, 19 Aug 2014 15:35:00)
I'd like to see these features: 1. A simpler way to navigate from current page to other parts of the book. 2. Ability to hand write annotations in margins, like you can in a bunch of note taking apps. 3. A system so that you know what page you are currently on.
👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍 (by HelenHT on Tue, 19 Aug 2014 10:25:00)
I really enjoy this app!
Use it everyday (by aphillips57 on Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:12:00)
Easily my most often used app. Works great. The ability to read on the go makes work easier and life more enjoyable.
Love it! (by Yemen8 on Tue, 19 Aug 2014 05:20:00)
Great APP and so convenient because my phone is always with me!! I read everywhere!!
Placeholders.... (by Klvnv6886 on Mon, 18 Aug 2014 05:49:00)
Need to figure out a method to delete those placeholders. Went back in a book to re-read something I missed, and can't get rid of the placeholder even after finishing the book.
Need password for sample download (by Albert.fwh on Sun, 17 Aug 2014 23:22:00)
Kindle for iPad has recommendation for related books and sample download at end of each book, I strongly suggest that kindle requires the password for download for sample download at this step. My kids(8years old) had download a lot of books samples which isn't proper for his age. I think it's very important that Kindle could help the parents to control the kids reading. Thanks!
Comic support needs work (by kanaught on Sun, 17 Aug 2014 20:41:00)
Comic readability needs improvement. Seems like several features need to be added, such as fitting to screen, an option to change the background color (perhaps to black rather than white), pinch to zoom, and rotate to landscape view (would be especially useful when panels span two pages). Otherwise, ebook readability is great and has a bunch of viewing options.
Best things in life (by Merrypippen on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 14:37:00)
Wonderful device - i was always a great reader but I read so many more books than i used to and i am willing to try a greater variety of books and authors. I love that you can try out a sampling of each book before you buy. I also love that you carry your entire library around with you so that you can read what you want when you want to

Umm... can i use it? (by T-$$$$$$$$$$$$$)33 on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 14:22:00)
I love the app... when i can use it! when i first got the app... it wouldnt show up on my homescreen and when i went to the app store and pressed open... it wouldnt let me use it! i thought i liked amazon!
Kindle is great! (by Ma2455 on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 14:05:00)
I have a kindle but have used it so much that the letters are almost all worn off the keys. Now I use the Kindle app on my iPad for downloading and reading e-books. I'm loving it!
I love this app! (by Ugabuggah on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 14:03:00)

It is so great to have all my books with me at all times. Lots of options for text size, color etc
Love it! (by Recie222 on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 12:30:00)
I use this app every single day, reading several books a week! I've never had a negative issue with it! I just wish we had the option to lock it with a password! I have young children that play on my iPad and I don't like that they have access to my books! Otherwise, it's great!
Great app (by Marckurtz on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 12:18:00)
I love this app! It helps me to find what book to read next, other people opinions and to keep track of my TBR list or next releases.

Love our Kindles ... (by BlickTX on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 12:00:00)
... And this app! Of course it's not perfect in everyone's view. We'd all have some feature added. It is, however, very close to perfect and will morph a bit with each update. It is as excellent, intuitive, app that does what it says it will do. I appreciate that.
Phenomenal (by Middlefield,OH on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 11:24:00)
I absolutely love the portability and complete access Kindle gives me. I always have a book instantly available, whether it is during a wait in a doctor's office or while snuggled up in my favorite chair. It is easy to use and light to carry, but also available on my phone, if I need it. What more could I ask for?
My favorite app!! (by Gr8read on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 11:05:00)

So far so good (by JoeyCAC on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 10:44:00)
So far I've been liking the kindle-audible combo. I very much enjoy having audible on at night while reading along that same book.
Page numbers (by Robert Kelly on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 10:34:00)
I agree with other reviewers; I would like to see page numbers rather than location.
Love Kindle Books (by Miniomaha on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 10:19:00)
In the beginning I was uncertain on whether I would enjoy reading books from a tablet. I love books. I love the scent of books. I love turning the pages. I love bookmarkers. What I have found is the ease in which I can purchase I book or magazine to be quite enjoyable. I love the ability to carry my library with me. I love the fact I can download a book at a moment notice. I also appreciate iCloud storage, Love, love the Kindle app!

Great (by Mddddddddddddre on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 09:14:00)
Recent upgrades have really added to this app. The kindle app was always great but the amazon link to download books was a multi step small button process. Need to keep improving to get 1 button download and one button return
Kindle App A Deluxe Bedtime Reading Experience (by kellyjgrace on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 07:08:00)
This app lets me read without the light on while my husband is sleeping. Kindle easily syncs to my iPad and iPhone so I can use either device. I can search my Library by title or author and see a list or grid display. Amazon.com became 10X more valuable when I bought this app for my tablet and phone. For use at home or when we travel to Africa this app is the gateway to all my favorite books.
Love it. (by bnarnold9893 on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 06:50:00)
I love the app. Sure, my Kindle is also extremely convenient, but I don't always remember to grab it, or I don't realize I'll need it to kill some time. Since my phone is always with me, it gives me even easier access to my books. The app is just as easy to navigate as my Kindle as well. It's an extremely useful and much needed app for my phone.
Great Ap! (by mswings4him on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 06:09:00)
Since my first IPad I have used Kindle and always prefer to use it over other aps. The ease of use and functions is remarkable!
Amazing (by Leimomi27 on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 06:09:00)
I love the Kindle app!! So cool that I can download a book on my kindle and pick up where I left off using my iPhone. Gotta love technology!! Sometimes the upgrades takes some getting used to especially when they change the layout. All things considered it's an amazing app that I use everyday.
Love it (by j_ackles<3 on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 05:44:00)
This is a great app. I use it for school and personal ebooks. It easy to search throughout the book, helpful when highlighting, and syncs automatically.
Love it! (by Peetzieness on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 05:16:00)
Love this app! It's the most reliable ebook reader out there.
But... (by Is this name taken?! Is it?! on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 04:55:00)
Love this app! Reading ease in all formats. My only disappointment is with library organization. I download ten+ books a week. Shelves or folders for categorizing and prioritizing would be awesome.
Must have app for my IPhone (by Sapphi Lupa on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 04:54:00)
I can honestly say I love this app. I don't need to lug around my kindle anymore, and I get all the books I love in the palm of my hand! My only minor problem, the cloud and device tabs can be a little confusing, but other that that I have no qualms with it! A must have app for my iPhone!
I like most things about the Kindle App (by Sodemann on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 04:48:00)
App is very easy to use, there's only one thing that I wish I could do with the app. Wish it had book shelves so I could sort my books by author, book type and order of series. Just drag and drop where I'd like to place them. If I could do that, then the app would be perfect.
Love kindle books! (by Poca94 on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 04:48:00)
The only complaint is I haven't figured out how to archive or delete books I've already read so they stop taking up space on my phone....

I absolutely live the App. However, some of the changes I don't like but overall I am super happy. I just started downloading audio books so I am not 100% sold on that quite yet. Can we please have accurate number of pages in the book you are currently reading and page numbers for that book.
Great (by Sunshineshilts on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 04:36:00)

My Constant Compnion (by Joseph McG on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 04:33:00)
I have always been a reader. My kindle has opened many worlds to me, news and views, thoughtful critiques of society, religion, and spirituality. And Black poetry, history, fiction... Writings my heart and mind and soul have hungered for years. My kindle is helping me to continue on a very important part of my inner journey. I am very, very fortunate to have this kindle.
Kindle App (by Chachasmama on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 04:28:00)
I find the app very convenient . I can read anywhere . And order new books which load quickly.
Good, but needs improvement (by Name unrevealed on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 04:06:00)
Reading books from the app is just fine. Problems I have are the ridiculous position numbers instead of actual page numbers and that there's no feature that gives you a synopsis of the book. Nook does this when you touch and hold the book cover in the library.
kindle book app is my favorite. (by Koloulou on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 04:04:00)
I'm not missing anything thanks to this app my books are also here through my apple devices. Best app!
One of my favorite apps (by kdny. on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 03:55:00)
One the things I like best is the ability to make the page black with white fonts, which is easier on my eyes. All in all, I believe it does what an e-reader app should and it does it well. Would like to have the ability to insert my choice of dictionary.
User friendly (by Murdvjifw on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 03:30:00)
Love being able to buy and read the books so easily. Love the Audible as well.
Always a Pleasure (by apoolepresto on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 03:06:00)
Never a problem downloading, easy to keep track of where I am and easy to manage with "Manage my Kindle". I have only one complaint; I can't find a way to archive a book--only to delete it.
Love my Kindle (by Heideani on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 02:49:00)
I love my Kindle. I can read it on my iPad but I can also take it with me outside and read it in the sun. I will sync to my last page read. I totally recommend getting a Kindle.
Love the app but..... (by Marie Fowler on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 02:42:00)
I love the app but disappointed can borrow books from lending library.
Love!! (by JenJen789 on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 02:24:00)
I love this app!!! Let's me take my favorite stories with me ALL the time!!
Love this app! (by Asacchetti on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 02:22:00)
I love the features of this app. Haven't tried the new voice feature but I certainly have read more than a few books on it and I love it! Very easy to use and manage. Highly recommend it!
No "pinch/zoom" for children's picture books. (by Indiana Goof on Sat, 07 Jun 2014 15:54:00)
Kindle falls down in a big way when it comes to children's picture books; unlike eBooks, it won't let you expand the illustrations AT ALL. There is no way to magnify pictures - what you see is what you get, which is HORRIBLY UNTHOUGHTFUL to parents purchasing, say, a Dr. Seuss publication. HEY KINDLE: Kid's books are BIG FOR A REASON! Yes, I'm angry, I purchased a Seuss book on Kindle only to find it worthless because my kids want to see the picture details larger and Kindle won't do it. FIX.
App that works great when your kindle is not handy (by astodrew on Fri, 06 Jun 2014 08:50:00)
This app allows you to access your entire kindle library on apple devices, even able to pick up where you last left off in a book.
Functional but design challenged (by HopeOfSisyphus on Fri, 06 Jun 2014 05:59:00)
This is my go to reading app, however Amazon can't seem to match the attention to detail and design quality that you might find in iBooks or Readmill. I would also love more easy and common sense organization schemes, such as grouping by author or series. Aside from the pleasure I get from reading, the rest of the app just seems rather clunky. e.g. adding books to collections, or switching to night mode and still having the drop down menus pop up at full brightness and contrast.
Please change app open procedure (by reviewer named nick on Fri, 06 Jun 2014 04:32:00)
Please allow an option to stop the 4 seconds of page-blocking bars at the top and bottom. Thanks!
Crashes (by Nsoj on Thu, 05 Jun 2014 10:52:00)
Since this last update, I can't get into my Kindle books! It goes to kindle books and immediately goes back to the main menu on my iPad. I never had this problem before. Please respond to this problem! I have many books I have paid for but now cannot read!
Listen (by Blue Azalea on Thu, 05 Jun 2014 02:11:00)
Cool but can't buy books off of phone and remove downloaded books off of phone after downloaded. I had a bunch to delete and accidentally saved them and couldn't remove. Remove me from purchase list or whatever
Needs vertical scroll option (by Magillette on Wed, 04 Jun 2014 22:20:00)
Decent app, book prices much better than iBooks, however the app is somewhat less refined than iBooks. Of note, a vertical scroll option would improve function a great deal in my opinion.
Kindle app vs nook app (by Peep2400 on Mon, 02 Jun 2014 02:54:00)
So overall the Kindle and Nook apps are comparable. I love that Kindle shows the % that you have read in a book BUT nook lets you adjust the lighting for the iPad on the reading screen while kindle does not. As a night reader, the lighting adjustments would help a lot. Overall I love reading on the nook but would like improvements.
As love but... (by Ebony Gabrielle on Sun, 01 Jun 2014 06:38:00)
I really enjoy having the option to read books from my iPhone. The only problem is that I cannot buy more from within the app. It gets pretty annoying to go through Amazon each time. The other issue is that because the email address I have set up with Amazon doesn't match the email I have with Kindle.. I can no longer buy books that will transfer to the Kindle app already set up on my phone. Please change this!!! Otherwise, this app is so convenient and it makes me read more often, which is something I never knew I enjoyed until now. 😊
Gorgeous and a joy to use (by BradForbes87 on Sun, 01 Jun 2014 01:50:00)
The new iOS 7 design is really fantastic, and it makes reading my favorite thing to do on my iPad. Heck, it makes reading one of my favorite things to do period. Great job and a big thanks to the people at Amazon who made this happen!
Nice (by Diane nearby on Sat, 31 May 2014 18:40:00)
This is sooo good so far. It continues. I'll buy a kindle !!
Kindle App Interfere with AppleTV (by airball9 on Sat, 31 May 2014 10:55:00)
While playing music from my iPad and reading Kindle book at the same time, the streaming to the AppleTV stops whenever I'm flipping a page. The music player stopped playing and the iPad reverted back to iPad itself as opposed to continue streaming music to the AppleTV. Please investigate. It is repeatable on my iPad/AppleTV combo. Thanks.

App won't open on iPhone 4S (by cathy1122 on Sat, 31 May 2014 03:30:00)
This app works great on ipad, but won't even open on iPhone 4S. Disappointing.
Good app, could be better (by Abel Goddard on Thu, 29 May 2014 04:48:00)
For reading, and having my library close at hand, this app is great. But, it could be better. 1. In-app purchase. Why do all my books have links to the next book in a series or other books by the same author if I can't do anything with them? 2. I could stand scrolling instead of pages, maybe - give me the option. 3. Left justification. Again, give me the option.
Can't view the dictionary (by Mad rope cuts on Thu, 29 May 2014 01:16:00)
After the last update, I could no longer view the dictionary (it hangs off the bottom of the page) when reading in landscape view.
I love the app but... (by Diddly Da Da on Wed, 28 May 2014 22:51:00)
I would prefer is I could see how many pages are in the book and how many pages in I am on all my books instead of just 1. I used to be able to before this recent update, but now I can't. I like seeing my percentage and how long I have left sometimes, but I'd rather know the page number. The whole location and how long I have left in the book is annoying and also, I liked knowing how long I have left in a chapter and know that feature is gone as well. If you could please add these features again, I would really appreciate it. Sincerely, A book lover
Use it all the time (by Chelsters159 on Wed, 28 May 2014 15:53:00)
I really like the app. The only downfall is that there is not a 'copy' option or 'share' to notes or text message instead of social media. I hate having to scroll through chapters to find the one quote I was looking for and then go back and forth between my notes and the book so I can write the text in my notes. Pretty time consuming and annoying but other than that I liver the app. I use it all the time to read. I read more with the app than with real books!
The best app ever!! (by ReneeMartinezXO on Tue, 27 May 2014 19:17:00)
This app is awesome!! I have it linked to my iPod and cellphone and I can always read where I left off. Also saves money in buying books.
PLEASE (by thalia65 on Tue, 27 May 2014 02:46:00)
Please make sample to buy book directly from the app! IT's SO HARD TO BUY THEM FROM AMAZON WED PAGE!
Horrid (by Jjjjkkkiiiiuuuuytrgvdhjbj on Mon, 26 May 2014 04:41:00)
Horrid! Don't get it. Won't let me sign in after I refreashed it 10times!
Recent problems (by Strouthion on Sun, 25 May 2014 19:02:00)
I LOVE my Kindle app, but am I the only one having problems lately with it not "remembering" where I left off in a book and it changing places on me to somewhere very radical and unexplainable? It's been happening for about 3 to 4 weeks now :-(
Great, but would love to see... (by FutureCabinHermit on Sat, 24 May 2014 13:30:00)
I would love to see two things implemented: 1) parental controls so that I can put this on my son's iPad Mini yet only give him access to certain books in our library, and 2) an option to read by scrolling (an option in iBooks, as well as a growing number of other reading apps and magazines), rather than the standard page turning. Still a great reader for access to my Kindle library.
Had this app... (by Waverlytango on Fri, 23 May 2014 21:44:00)
I had this app but my iPad crashed. When I redownlowded it , it says it's on my iPad, but it isn't and I can't open it from AppStore. If this is fixed this review will change.
Scrolling view, please (by Veronica_Rhody_219 on Fri, 23 May 2014 20:28:00)
Could you please add the scrolling view feature? Swipe to change to next page make me dizzy ><
Reading on phone is fun again (by bjoveski on Fri, 23 May 2014 09:37:00)
This app makes reading on phone an enjoyable experience. The sync with the kindle is an awesome feature!
Bad (by Dr. DJW on Thu, 22 May 2014 19:20:00)
Why would I need to sign in to my Amazon account to search/pay/etc? Why not allow us iPad users to do all that directly from the Kindle app? Lame
Where are the bookmarks? (by Eugene Pagano on Thu, 22 May 2014 12:03:00)
IF there is a way to find your bookmarks, it’s very well hidden and inconistent with user-friendliness.
I understand but... (by Celestialnova on Wed, 21 May 2014 03:10:00)
I like the app as it gives many different options for reading the books, organizing, and the page turn animation is great. HOWEVER, the loc numbers, while they make sense in an "under the hood" sense, make no sense in displaying as progress in the book. How many pages are there left in a chapter? How much in the book? The other ebook readers do this, and as such when I read on here I have no sense of how much farther I have in a chapter or book. While a good book you never want to put down, the progress of reading a book is lost in this app.
bad at ios 7x (by espn loser on Tue, 20 May 2014 16:13:00)
my review keeps getting deleted. not sure why. both kindle and ios changed the behaviour of the gui's and the apps. however, no new features were added, the consumer experience has been degraded. and, kindle is full of bugs for reading newspapers, the only reason i use the kindle app. i think the only thing ios7 has added is more backdoors to assault consumers with ads. consumers, you have been warned. the only thing kindle has done is add new hoops and widgets which complicate the READING experience, the sole reason for the app. kindle has complicated the user experience, more clicks, more menus, app features that used to work that no longer work (last read, truncated reading lists, articles read, many more). i want to easily read what i buy, i do not want to be distracted by any other "features" of the app. maybe amazon can hire one or two people who can actually read analog media (newsprint, books, magazines) to help your illiterate programmers design software for reading. and no, if you add advertising to the app, i will delete it so fast. wake up amazon.
Great app, but could use some improvements! (by Mearaonthewall on Tue, 20 May 2014 03:04:00)
The app is great for reading. But I wish you could browse the kindle-Amazon store and purchase e-books through the app. The Amazon app doesn't even allow "electronic purchases". It also would be extremely convenient if you could organize or at least mark books as read. Perhaps a simple notes feature. My iPad is a Gen1 and doesn't have a lot of space on it so I delete the books from the device when I'm finished, but I also have numerous purchased books in the cloud that are unread. Again, I love the app for it's main function but it could certainly use some convenience upgrades!
Question (by That_one_girl_3 on Mon, 19 May 2014 21:13:00)
How can I read the whole book , I only get samples ? 😕

Kindle app book downloads (by slg1963 on Sun, 18 May 2014 01:15:00)
Crap app! Books will not download to read off line! What a waste of money!
Charcoal background please (by Zeteticat on Fri, 16 May 2014 15:25:00)
I use this app all the time - I love that I can sync across devices and pick up where I left off whether I'm standing in line at the grocery store or lounging on my couch. I'd really like to see a dark option with a grey background - the white on black is just too harsh. A few more font options would be nice as well.
Love my Kindle and Kindle App (by NetAtlanta on Thu, 15 May 2014 11:39:00)
Having my whole library in my hand is amazing. What I read is pretty dependent on my mood, and trying to guess if I was gonna be in a learning frame of mind or a get-lost-in-a-story mood, or something else often meant lugging texts, with more often than not went unread. Here I have it all. Like others, I would like a better way to organize-- but rather than folders, I want tags. My books fit into multiple categories, and I want to sort in whichever way strikes my fancy. I would especially like a private tag, that would "hide" certain items when I choose. (When I am demonstrating to someone at work how awesome Kindle is, I don't really want them to see that I'm reading 50 Shades of Grey). A further refinement would to have content I generate sync among my devices. I would love the ability to see all of my notes across a set of texts-- if I am pulling content for designing a lesson from multiple places, the birds-eye view of the same tag, (for instance: How to market yourself) that would show the associated reading list, all I would have to do is read, tag, print.
Full justification destroys reading experience (by C Jenkins on Wed, 14 May 2014 10:01:00)
After all these years, the app still full-justifies text, creating ugly and distracting gaps and rivers. Please add a setting readers can use to force left alignment. Currently, the app simulates full justification by adding extra space between words, and the result is distractingly ugly.
Make more space for dictionary (by Maxxie Mao on Mon, 12 May 2014 08:04:00)
I will give it five stars if the dictionary is like what on kindle paperwhite and plz don't let the screen flash after close the dictionary.
More books than iBooks. (by PS3 GUY!!! on Sun, 11 May 2014 17:17:00)
This app has a lot more books on it than any other books app I've seen.
Enhancement to Books Read (by kelr576 on Sat, 10 May 2014 20:06:00)
I love the app and that I can make folders for collections. I have over 300 books and would like to be able to mark a book as read.
Best book you can read (by Juliette03 on Sat, 10 May 2014 01:34:00)
I love kindle they have the best books in the world.
Always love reading (by Abbycats on Fri, 09 May 2014 23:44:00)
I love this app, it was the reason I got an ipad and switched over from my kindle device. Now all we need is the ability to purchase the books through the app like on the kindle and I will ditch that old thing!
Useless info (by ivor22 on Fri, 09 May 2014 22:53:00)
Needs improvement!!! (by Horse Crazy girl!!!! on Fri, 09 May 2014 22:05:00)
I love this app but it needs one more thing. What it needs is a way to search for different books and buy books on it. If it had that I would give this app five stars! :)
Horrible! (by AZ Star on Fri, 09 May 2014 16:53:00)
There are lots of problems with the new update. If you leave a book it doesn't remember the book you were reading or where you were in the book. When I open the app I have to search in the library for my book. Once I find it and open it, I then have to search for the last page I read. Needs another update now.
Finally u show page number! (by 라원 on Fri, 09 May 2014 09:59:00)
I'm so glad, finally u show both page number n loc. It wont confuse me anymore with page number. Anyway, the only one thing i am not satisfy with Kindle now is theme. I think u should do sth with theme, its not look interesting at all. It makes me feel bored with my ebook while reading Kindle. Please add sth, especially Sepia color now i think its a bit darker than before. Hope we still can expect more from u. ;)
I love kindle books. (by Koloulou on Fri, 09 May 2014 03:46:00)
I'm not missing anything thanks to this app my books are also here through my apple devices.
Convenient solution for travelers (by Dr. Hamm and Cheeze on Thu, 08 May 2014 16:38:00)
Awesome application for taking your books on the go whether in a flight, school, the bus or train (and pretty much anything public transit). It also gives you the option of changing the fonts and background colors so it looks pretty cool! It's also significantly cheaper to buy the books here. It's really quick, easy to navigate and syncs to all your devices easily. It's a solution to a problem but not a replacement for books!
ios 7.1.1 and latest version kindle broken (by espn loser on Fri, 02 May 2014 16:27:00)

I have always loved to read, admittedly I sometimes miss the feel of holding a book however with the Kindle App I can read anywhere, anytime, and anyplace. I'm not limited to the Kindle but can move between iPhone, iPad, and Mac without losing my place. iMessage miss the feel of holding a book
No in-app purchase? (by DesignZak on Wed, 30 Apr 2014 11:51:00)
Why in the world can't I buy books in the app? Glaring oversight, and making me wary of using the app, I don't want to use my browser to purchase books, but rather the app I am reading in.

Best reading App (by Suzek00 on Mon, 28 Apr 2014 20:33:00)
I've tried all of the reading apps and Kindle is by far the easiest to manage and navigate. I find that Kindle books are priced better than iBooks or Barnes and Noble, and most of my local library's e-books come in kindle format. My go to app for books!
Kindle for iPhone (by Jojo's girl on Sun, 27 Apr 2014 15:46:00)
I love this app for iPhone. I had it on my next tablet and didn't last a day. It started messing up and I couldn't read on it. So I downloaded it on my iPhone and now I'm addicted to kindle!

Unbeatable Portability (by GMissyZ on Sat, 26 Apr 2014 14:23:00)
Main points to consider: flexibility among devices, ease of carrying around, never without something to read, tremendous selection of classics, best sellers and authors to discover. This is reading nirvana, although I do miss the delicious sound of a turning page.

Love the app, but wish it was easier to sort (by Cheryldv on Sat, 26 Apr 2014 02:20:00)
I have started using Kindle much more often than iBooks, but I really wish it were easier to group things. I use collections, but I do not like how things seem to move around on their own.

Can not shop new books (by Willtherealcoreypleasestandup on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 20:02:00)
I don't understand in today's day and age how you can have a Kindle app that you cannot shop online. It is very frustrating to not be able to download new books once you finished your previous ones. Otherwise the app is fine.
the best book reading app on my ipad (by BBoerman on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 19:16:00)
i have several reading apps on my ipad. my ipad is primarily a reader for me -- newspapers, magazines, books. it is secondarily a micro-pc. kindle is by far the richest source of books, and the convenient way to buy, store and read books. in a perfect world, kindle would also read my ipad book shelf, my google read library, etc. but in a perfect world, they would all read kindle too. so since i'm stuck with multiple independent book readers, my first choice is always kindle.

Sufficient (by MarjieA1 on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 04:46:00)
Not as good as a real Kindle where you can use collections and report typographical errors amongst other features. For just reading a single book though, it does the job. It remembers where I was reading in a book on a different device but only if I remember which book and load it from the cloud (wish it would load the book as well as the page.)

Ok, I confess I have has the app for several years and would only use it when desperate to read on my desk top. Rest in peace little desk top and hello recycled passed down IPhone 4. The kindle appos great I can even down load books that I am using for class highlight, annotate and print for my students to use!! Happiness! I can upload research articles , personal docs. It is so useful. I highly recommend this app.
Kindle reviews (by Mobro394 on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 02:00:00)
This app works great. For three years now my wife and I read kindle books daily for hours and hours without a flaw and have enjoyed it to the Extream. The only thing I can think of that could be more user friendly is is deleting books from our library. It would be great if we could mark several books to be deleted and pressed delete one time or a second time to confirm.
Love this app! (by Visadyna on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 01:45:00)
The Kindle app for my iPhone/iPad is beyond a doubt one of my most used apps. I need this portability. The space it saves me at home (which would be overrun with paperbacks within a year) is priceless!
Love/hate (by Bain09 on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 01:03:00)
I love the app but wish you were able to buy/browse books from the app itself like on the droid kindle app and not have to go in to a totally different app or website to do that

Not quite like the real thing (by Saroseke on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 23:59:00)
When I have an app I want to be able to do pretty much anything that I can do from the full site, or in this case from my kindle. The app is perfect for reading books you've already purchased from your kindle, I just wish I could search for new titles and purchase those through the app. I use the app on my iPhone and am not always near my kindle where I can buy the next installment of whatever I happen to be reading at the time...

I am a CONSTANT reader. My kindle/kindle app performs wonderfully. I have never had any problems arise, even with hours and hours of continuous use. No crashing. No download problems. No visual complaints. Thank you...I love both my kindle and my kindle app!

Love My Kindle (by dee4071 on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 21:51:00)
I love reading on my kindle app. It definitely makes it easier to buy and read books right away and anywhere you go. I definitely told my friends about the app and we love it.
Kindle app (by Furface Greybeard on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 21:50:00)
I really like the Kindle app on my ipad. It's great with being able to adjust fonts, etc. I give it 5 stars even though it needs a way to organize books further, such as series or genres. Other than needing a way to organize books my way, it would be nice to be able to open them in Voice Dream when my eyes act up which is a great text to speech app. Guess I can't have everything but it would be a nice option.
Love Kindle (by Patespeg on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 21:40:00)
Great app for anyone who reads. So easy to use and adapt to your preferences. Will not be without it in the future.
The Kindle App (by LMcMarie on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 21:38:00)
I have completely enjoyed having the kindle app. It syncs with my other devices(computer, kindle and my tablet) I certainly recommend anyone to get the Kindle app if they wish to read Kindle books! Great app to have!

Kindle (by Mcelwolf on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 20:31:00)
I really like the Kindle for iPad app that they produced!!! My favorite part is the collections. The only thing I don't like is that some of the books don't have real page numbers. The books w/out real page numbers makes it really hard to know where you are and how much is left. Over, I'm giving it 4 stars because it is a great reader!!!!

Only reading program I use now.
One simple request (by elcanche on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 20:16:00)
The Kindle app is simply amazing. It is my go-to app for reading all of my ebooks, PDFs and even Word documents. The only thing missing is a better way to organize my ever-growing library!
Not worth your time (by Draw prob on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 20:05:00)
I know a lot of people are saying amazing things about this app but I think that it's pretty stupid and there are better reading apps then this one.
Best reading app on iPad (by Hatman70 on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 19:26:00)
The Kindle app has become my primary reading vehicle when used on both my iPad and iPad mini w/retina. The performance is very good. And the books format very nicely on the retina screens.
Organize Library (by Moms Chiquita on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 18:51:00)
I like the app but I would like to be able to organize the books by topic. Thank you
Good app, but needs better content management tools (by kevrut on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 16:07:00)
For example, being able to categorize by fiction, non fiction, and personal documents would be great. Even better would be some type of folder management solution. Last, how about being able to display only read or unread books, or just recent purchases?
Enhancement Request (by Carla Sparks on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:47:00)
My husband and I share a kindle account. We often read what the other just finished. It would be nice if the place marker for 'go to last page read' would reset upon completion so the "new" reader can pick up where we left off across multiple devices. If there is way to do that I haven't figured it out yet... Aside from bookmarks.
App not working (by Iluvorange97 on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 14:34:00)
You need to fix the kindle app it is not deregistering!! Or showing/ downloading my books could you please get this fixed??
Love the app (by John&Nina on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 13:10:00)
I read my kindle books on this app daily, when having my kindle is not convenient. The app performs great. The only complaint I have is the option was recently added to allow the app to display estimated time until the end if the chapter, but it doesn't work. It will never display anything except "learning reading speed." My OCD makes it hard to quit reading without a logical stopping point. It would be nice to know if I have an appropriate amount of time to read. Other than that, love the app.
One star until it allows forcing left justification (by esoterica on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 11:52:00)
Readability studies have shown that full justified text is harder to read, yet most books continue to use it because evidently that's just the way books are supposed to look. Kindle continues to not offer an option to use left justification. Apple's iBooks app has long allowed forcing left justification, and has much better typography to boot. iBooks also lets you display the book as a continuous scroll, which for a lot of people works much better on a phone than the page metaphor does.
Crashes (by Nsoj on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 11:27:00)
Since this last update, I can't get into my Kindle books! It goes to kindle books and immediately goes back to the main menu on my iPad. I never had this problem before.
Table of contents is nice (by Horseshaq on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 05:12:00)
Please add more cool features.
Text To Speech Would be awesome! (by mrissao on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 02:43:00)
It's great to read ebooks and convenient if you forget your Kindle at home and want to finish a book. I gave it 3 stars only because it crashes every now and then when I download a book. It would be great if it can do 'Text to Speech', like most kindles.
Almost 5.. (by Lauren Hughes on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 02:39:00)
I love the app overall. The functionality of controls inside a book are great. They options of text size, background color, etc are great. The only thing I feel this app is missing is a way to organize your books. I would love to be able to organize by books into folders by series, author, genre, etc. I like having things in folders and well organized, and I don't have that option with this app. Fix that, and 5 stars hands down!
The Best IPad Reader (by Gyptians on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 00:50:00)
This app has consistently performed from the beginning. Impressed with the attention to betterment. My main reader.

Awesome App is Awesome (by Mattchez on Tue, 22 Apr 2014 18:27:00)
Love my kindle app for iphone. Jeff Bezos thinks of everything! Red leader phone home.pdf shows up so beautifully!
Really good but... (by Shelbncody on Mon, 21 Apr 2014 18:46:00)
This app is great for reading all of my books, but I wish you could get to the store from the app. You have to go on safari to get to the bookstore. If this was added the app would be perfect.
