Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review
Release Date: March 4, 2009
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.
Need help (by Chantilli01 on Sun, 28 Sep 2014 23:34:00)
I upgraded my iPad to iOS 8 and the app didn't complete updating and now it won't let me do anything. I can't even delete to try again. Can anyone help me?
No iPhone 6 support (by Ryaaaan on Sun, 28 Sep 2014 21:51:00)
Still waiting on this guys
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.
Dee (by Seimomoney on Sun, 28 Sep 2014 16:08:00)
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.
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 – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 51th to 100th
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!
Kindle (by Philly_Monroe on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 18:37:00)
Live kindle for getting books I like to read.
Kindle!!! (by KristalDiamond85 on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 18:10:00)
I absolutely love my Kindle and it constantly improves with each upgrade..Love it!!!
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!
Everything I want in an ereader. (by Egtech on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 02:22:00)
Now that you can group Collections, it's great. Before with the newer generation you can't create your own Collections.
Yasss! (by LadyTazXO on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 01:55:00)
I love this app.. Very good 😊
The best app ever! (by Cramosz on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 01:55:00)
This is one of those things that I can't live without! Constantly reading!
Good app (by TasneemPenn2013 on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 01:46:00)
Because of an e-purchase I made recently, I am buying real books and reading often again. I still use this app too!
Night mode (by crossfire3636 on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 01:43:00)
Can you add a night mode?
All I Use for Reading (by Sean T. Mac on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 00:53:00)
My own personal library. Love it!
In love (by monica dunnam on Mon, 22 Sep 2014 00:09:00)
I love to read with the Kindle app on my iPhone and iPad. Being able to click on a word and having the definition show up is probably one of my favorite feature! It's awesome to have all my books with me wherever I go! Thanks Kindle 👏👍😘😍
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.
Today widget for iOS 8 not working? (by Krohnengold on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 16:35:00)
I can see my active titles in the notification area, but tapping on them or trying to slide them doesn't do anything.
Love this app!! (by Tom gamerer on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 15:13:00)
I use this all every day and I love it.
Such a good app (by drewtrotter on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:28:00)
I just want to add my voice to all the others in praise of this app. It is remarkable.
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)
I use every other day!!
Scaling (by la_listen on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 06:45:00)
App needs to be updated to iOS 8 larger devices such as the 6 plus. Currently text is fuzzy and difficult to read. Hoping this update comes soon.
I could not survive without my kindle or kindle app! (by JPS49 on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 04:47:00)
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
Excellent app! (by NelsenM on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 23:46:00)
Have never had any problems.
Love the Kindle app (by JBrewerCNM on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 23:34:00)
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.
Very well done. (by PaperKing27 on Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:31:00)
works exactly the way i need!!!
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)

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.

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.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 201th to 250th
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
The best (by aod.ew.eati on Tue, 02 Sep 2014 06:10:00)
Amazing app must have
Excellent APP (by david.petersen on Tue, 02 Sep 2014 03:12:00)
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
Super cool (by beta.iuci.cief on Mon, 01 Sep 2014 01:16:00)
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)
It works! It really works!
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.
Download!!! (by Kyle Thompson4 on Sun, 24 Aug 2014 01:09:00)
This app is absolutely amazing !!!
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)
Best app I've seen in a long time
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.
Good (by faceca.acaft.ocia on Thu, 21 Aug 2014 02:08:00)
This app is great ,I love it
Love (by Londbgndlsmen on Thu, 21 Aug 2014 01:01:00)

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

I love reading books on my kindle app. I would give it 5 stars if you could have it read to you without paying a red oculus price for Audible !!
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)
This is the most used app on my phone and iPad.
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!
Favorite reading app (by Bear197238 on Thu, 12 Jun 2014 09:37:00)
This is my original reading app and still my favorite.
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)
I love my kindle app. If I leave my kindle at home I can keep reading it on my phone.
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!
Couldn't live without this app! (by spike1111 on Sun, 27 Apr 2014 02:15:00)

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 it (by QueenieRuthie on Sat, 26 Apr 2014 05:15:00)
By far my favorite app! Great app for on the go or a quiet evening at home! Awesome invention:)
Kindle for my iPad! (by Basard77 on Sat, 26 Apr 2014 03:55:00)
I love the idea of having an app for it, and I have choice to read my books from any devices. Very good.

Having multiple books always available is a great thing
Love my Kindle on iPhone (by I will never tell hehe on Sat, 26 Apr 2014 02:44:00)
I use my Kindle App all the time! I agree with other reviews, better ways to organize books and easier way of getting answers for problems (at least it is an issue on my iPhone).
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.
Best app I have (by Deedee762 on Sat, 26 Apr 2014 00:56:00)

It a good app still a lot glitchy (by Kaia Silver on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 20:59:00)
I wish they will fix it so it will stop crashing freezing and upgrade the apple version to ISO 7 i wish there was a download all your books button so you don't have to re download all your books over again when you download kindle to a different device I love that I can change the font and the spacing and stuff

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.

So easy to use and love the whispersync format
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.)

I love my Kindle app (by Suzan jf3 on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 02:05:00)
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

Love kindle on the ipad. Prefer it to kindle devices. Love the collections function.
My escape (by AllSmiles86 on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 00:22:00)
Though there are some classics that are enjoyed as a hardcopy, it doesn't lessen the value of what Kindle means to me. My savior when I want to escape from people and just indulge in a good read.
Lou (by Lou's escape on Fri, 25 Apr 2014 00:12:00)
The new updated version is fabulous. I enjoy chapters and page numbers. I bought my 81 yr old mother a kindle which she absolutely loves.
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...
Powerhouse reader (by T&r8374 on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 22:58:00)
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!

Kindle (by Carolyn Young on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 22:05:00)
The best reading app ever! Highly recommend it to all my friends and everyone else!!!
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 Kimigirl 4 on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 20:35:00)
Love it!! On my phone so I can read anywhere!!
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!!!!
Love kindle (by rshackelford56 on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 20:27:00)
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 (by LexicalScope on Tue, 22 Apr 2014 23:59:00)
Looks good, much faster!
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.
Wish (by Jami Seiden on Sun, 20 Apr 2014 23:44:00)
I wish that I could buy a book or use prime on my phone and it's aggravating that I have to go get my kindle if I want to buy a book or if I'm on the road with our my kindle and want a new book nope because it only gives samples.....
In app purchases? (by ThisGirlDrea on Sun, 20 Apr 2014 07:47:00)
I think this app is amazing, but it's really inconvenient that you can't buy books in app or even on the mobile app. It seems like they could make a way to purchase items in app. Otherwise I love it!
Love... (by signingdragon on Sun, 20 Apr 2014 02:20:00)
I love reading in the Kindle app, but my one complaint is that I cannot put my ever-growing library into categories, like I can in iBooks. I would love to be able to put my poetry books into a poetry folder and my textbooks for school into a school folder. Any way you can do that, this app gets 5 stars!
Can not shop new books (by Willtherealcoreypleasestandup on Sat, 19 Apr 2014 23:19:00)
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.
It's gone (by Toriolivia on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 19:32:00)
The app just simply vanished and I can't get it back .i do not know how well it works .but I just got it and it is off to a very bad start
Okay but not great (by jayme beyer on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 19:01:00)
You can't rent or purchase new books. Only what you have purchased.
stopped using it (by Gentlegal on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 16:05:00)
Ever since the last update, this app will not keep my place in the book I am reading on my iPad 2. I will start a book, read a few chapters, close the ipad, and the next day when I open it to read it will be back to the beginning. I have tried syncing and the message will say that is as far as I have read. Any time I read, it does not save where I have ended. It will take me to a previously read page.
Gone downhill (by Modem junkie on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 22:56:00)
I have found the kindle app very useful on my iPad 2. But suddenly some of the books I have downloaded will not display. Oddly, the "extras" appear, but the text itself does not, it just appears to keep loading... Notes: I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app and redownloaded the books but no luck. Still have not upgraded to iOS 7 and don't want to. So.. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It is useless this way. Hmm. I just deleted the single star. Nope it won't left me.
Almost perfect (by KupoMog on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 00:36:00)
The checkmark for downloaded books covers the volume number for mangas. Really annoying since I love grid view, but can't use it due to this. I'm not a fan of the iOS 7-ish look. iOS 7 looks like garbage. I love that you can see mangas in full screen (no iPad status bar at the top), unlike Nook.
Needs parental control! (by LenkaChan on Tue, 15 Apr 2014 00:24:00)
I need to be able to keep books in my device even if I unregister it (as it used to be), or some way to prevent under aged person from accessing my books in the iCloud gallery. I will not pay monthly fee in addition to purchasing the books just to do what is right, and what used to be possible not that long a go. Until you fix this, I'm not purchasing any kids books for my iPads kindle app
Annoying popups (by ky934857209487502 on Mon, 14 Apr 2014 10:18:00)
This is overall a nice reading app, but if a frequently-visited page (e.g. a table of contents) is at the end of a book, it will constantly pester you to review the book in question. (I think it ends up doing this about 1/3 of the times when I visit the table of contents in one of my books.) There should be some way to turn this off. I'd give it 4 stars if it weren't for the obnoxious popups.
Upset (by Bjthebear13 on Sun, 13 Apr 2014 04:27:00)
Can't get it to work on my iPad mini :((
Fix your delete process!!!! (by themirror on Sat, 12 Apr 2014 22:50:00)
3 books were not avail 2 were library rentals, 1 a book I purchased The thumbnails look Exactly the same. When you click delete it asks you if you want to delete it. But what book? Why doesn't that box say the name of the book (in that confirmation box) so you don't accidentally delete all your carefully placed highlights and bookmarks after your loaned book comes back??? Where is that data now? Very frustrated
😕 (by mnsloan on Sat, 12 Apr 2014 18:14:00)
Can't seem to download any books! But it's great!!!
Cannot purchase from app (by Megface07 on Fri, 11 Apr 2014 20:23:00)
I love kindle and usually read on my tablet, but I don't always have it with me and when I want to look for a new book on my phone I can't as the iPhone app does not allow you to view the kindle store.
Best app (by Lotuslian1711 on Fri, 11 Apr 2014 07:43:00)
Kindle reader is a best app from a very soon. I have nothing to talk about this. It's juts perfect.
Lots of bugs (by Akcook11 on Thu, 10 Apr 2014 17:11:00)
Ever since downloading version 4.1.2 the app seems to get stuck quite a bit. The book I've been primarily using for school had no problems last semester, and then since updating the app this semester, anytime I try highlighting any amount of text, it freezes and becomes unresponsive until it finally starts responding, at which point I have to try again to highlight whatever I was attempting to highlight when it froze. Very annoying. An update to address this bug would be great cuz I've already done all the basic troubleshooting, and usually after force quitting the app, when I reopen it it's on the library screen rather than going to my lost recent page. Very annoying.
easy on the go reading (by yazzo56 on Thu, 10 Apr 2014 16:38:00)
i adore my kindle reader but its getting long in the tooth. this app makes my new mini the go to reader. i like that i can transfer books between devices. i also like the features that allow you to organize collections so if you have a large collection like me it doesn’t take forever to find “that book"
Almost a real Kindle (by Omega Muerte on Thu, 10 Apr 2014 12:55:00)
Great for reading, only complaint is that the app doesn't seem to ever figure out how long it will take to determine reading speed.
One star until it allows forcing left justification (by esoterica on Mon, 07 Apr 2014 04:41:00)
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.

It doesn't let me read the full book (by Fashion Loveee on Sun, 06 Apr 2014 22:52:00)
I only get to read the first chapter and then it will pop up to another thing and at the top it says "Before You Go". How do I read the full book? Please help me guys.
I'd give 5* were there one improvement (by shopperlinda on Sat, 05 Apr 2014 20:24:00)
I love this app, BUT wish there was some way to make font size bigger when I highlight a word, to consult the dictionary. My eyesight isn't what it once was, and it's awfully hard to read the tiny (and light-colored) font.
No store (by Dtyler03 on Sat, 05 Apr 2014 03:34:00)
What happened to being able to access the kindle store from the kindle app
Not usable (by Kaia Silver on Fri, 04 Apr 2014 15:28:00)
I wish they will fix it so it will stop crashing freezing and upgrade the apple version to ISO 7 i wish the books you downloaded on another app remains downloaded when you download the app a different tablet or phone.
Not worth your time (by Ejohns99999 on Thu, 03 Apr 2014 03:59:00)
This isn't worth your time or storage. Every time I try to get on it it closes out and every time I do get on it it freezes on the screen. Even if it doesn't do this things it is a bad app and you shouldn't waste your money on it.

Way better than iBooks but not what I expect (by Josh C D on Thu, 03 Apr 2014 00:29:00)
Would like to be able to purchase books from the app. But I understand that apple requires a 30% of in app sales.
Am I missing something (by stacey1111 on Wed, 02 Apr 2014 22:21:00)
I can't seem to find the kindle store anywhere within the app. Now maybe it's not there but it's hard to believe that they wouldn't have an option to buy books in app and read instantly. Seems like a no brainier to me.
Love this app (by Sarah Tobin on Tue, 01 Apr 2014 06:17:00)
I love this app! I love having so many different types of books available to me at all times of the day.
Sync keeps failing ): (by Caroline Bognot on Tue, 01 Apr 2014 01:13:00)
I love this app! It's my most used app. But in the recent months, it keeps failing to sync and I would need to delete the app, re-download it and the hundreds of books I have on my cloud shelf onto my phone. Hopefully this is just a bug that can be fixed soon! Just wanted to out it out there in case anyone else is running into the same problem.
Good... No movies (by 20_boo on Tue, 01 Apr 2014 00:20:00)
Great app for reading but I bought a bunch of movies on my kindle and I can't get those! I want my movies.
Great, could improve (by Mr Me'Self on Mon, 31 Mar 2014 19:56:00)
This has been the only reading app I've tried and I enjoy it very much. I would suggest adding an option for naming files within collections. That would make it perfect!

Text to speech pls (by Allaaa on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 18:30:00)
The app is great but I'd love the text to speech ability.
Great idea! (by Mardroger on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 17:31:00)
I had my kindle device but the fact that I also have iPad is really great idea to develop a kindle app for Apple devices therefore I have choices, I can pick up any device on to go because I can get access to books any time. Fantastic!
... (by Mkk0210 on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 12:53:00)
It's addicting to just read and it's easier on a device that you carry around with you everywhere
Great application (by Mona Sheikh on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 10:23:00)
Love using it. Wish all textbooks know how good Kindle device and Reader are and release all their books in Kindle format. Kindle should offer less costlier pricing to third world countries as is done by a few others.
Reading speed time wrong (by The Amin Family on Fri, 28 Mar 2014 05:53:00)
The reading speed time remaining function is horrible. It tells me I have 10 mins remaining in the book when I just started.
Yeaaaahhhh BUT (by Toleda Lee on Thu, 27 Mar 2014 05:42:00)
I use this app have been using it daily since forever! I would like to see notifications or info when part 2,3 or 4 are available! Maybe a link of the synopsis I have so many books I forget sequels are coming out n sometimes what the book is about! Help that will make this perfect! Please

It worked fine until.... (by Parque puedo on Thu, 27 Mar 2014 03:19:00)
The last update. Now I can't even open a book or worse scroll up/down:( please fix whatever you broke!
It still has bugs that need to be worked out (by Tacaltt on Thu, 27 Mar 2014 02:58:00)
It won't let me share an excerpt from a book on Facebook. I kept trying and followed the directions and it simply won't let me. So freaking ANNOYING!!
Update (by Babyssmile on Tue, 25 Mar 2014 19:05:00)
If your reading this and you see the update on your iPad or whatever device you use. This new update has adds slowness too the downloads and has made my kindle app struggle. I can't even turn pages with this new update. My best advice too anyone having problems with the update or app is to delete it totally and reinstall it. Just remember not to update the app. I won't be updating till I see new reviews on it.
Best reader app for iPhone (by alurah on Tue, 25 Mar 2014 13:43:00)

Great App! (by HugoTheBoss2011 on Tue, 25 Mar 2014 03:02:00)
I love this app. It's functional, but it can be improved. It can have some more capabilities, like being able to purchase right out of the app. Hugues A.

Horrible compared to Droid app!! (by xyz 123456 on Mon, 24 Mar 2014 01:24:00)
Don't get me wrong I love my iPhone BUT I'm only giving this app 2 stars. Kindle store should be direct access. Also recommendations at the end of the each book.... Just like Droid's version PLEASE!!
Unreliable garbage. (by cecilteapot on Mon, 24 Mar 2014 00:41:00)
Had an open book test, and the search failed to search any faster than five minutes per entry. This caused a lot of stress, and ultimately screwed my gpa. I hate you Kindle. I tried everything, restarts, different platforms, and updates...still I had issues at the most critical moments. This app works fine, when it matters the least.
Love it, buuuut... (by SarahAlldayuhh on Sun, 23 Mar 2014 23:23:00)
I'm a college student and I absolutely love getting my books on here; it's very convenient. However, this app would be absolutely perfect if we could underline text and write freely on the page (like drawing arrows or reminders)" That would be so amazingly helpful. Please consider!!!
Frustrating (by adorablepink on Sun, 23 Mar 2014 19:24:00)
The app will not allow me to highlight specific text. The dictionary is not working. When I check my highlights they show in hieroglyphics. Very frustrating when you pay over $100 for a book!
Good App however... (by Zimbra Bim on Sun, 23 Mar 2014 18:30:00)
Use it all the time without too many complaints however a few issues with recent updates. With one of them I lost the ability to sync books between devices- annoying. The more problematic issue is loosing several lines of text between pages for some selections of font face and size. It's a drag to have to poke around and experiment to find a combination that will display all of the text of a book.
Not thrilled (by Megan Aue on Sun, 23 Mar 2014 16:47:00)
This app on my iPad is getting worse and worse. It's been having problems syncing to my account for two weeks now! I prefer to read from here and not on my phone but I've been having to do that lately. Please fix this problem and I'll up the stars!
Text format (by Charleymom on Sun, 23 Mar 2014 16:23:00)
I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with the number of text formatting issues I'm having with this app. Lines, words, and sentences are being cut off in various books. I'm having to adjust font size and line spacing just to read my book. Please fix this.
Good, but... (by hkremer on Sun, 23 Mar 2014 12:45:00)
Why can't I copy text? I can copy text on both the Mac and PC versions of the kindle app, as well as in iBooks, so I can't imagine it's a copyright issue. All I can do is send to Facebook and twitter. What?
Easy reading (by Seacliff2 on Sun, 23 Mar 2014 12:20:00)
Very clear, crisp text on screen. Good navigation in a book. Huge selection of titles available. Great for travel, able to pack all your reading into one small package.
Kindle Reading (by Emmy&Sophia=) on Sat, 22 Mar 2014 15:35:00)
I love my kindle and the app, it's one of my very favorite thing's!
Hands down, best reading app, but . . . (by MNChar on Fri, 21 Mar 2014 16:18:00)
Although the Kindle app is the best, even the best can be improved. One thing I would like is a copy ability. Often I want to leave notes for a book club I am in and in order to know what I am referring to, I would like to copy that area for the book notes area of the kindle. Please consider adding this feature.
Review (by Creodorf on Fri, 21 Mar 2014 13:14:00)
How can I 'undo' an update? I want to get my books from my Kindle to my iPad. Am still wanting my Kindle on my iPad and can't. It was on there once and after I did an update it was gone and I can't get it back on my iPad....please help me!
Bravo! Fixed the reverse highlighting! (by Wannabe speedreader on Thu, 20 Mar 2014 15:49:00)
Kindle has been my go-to app for waiting rooms and the like for a long time, but I like reading bright lettering on dark background and the highlighting was downright ugly. ... Until now! It's clear and clean finally. Thank you kindle!
Works great (by stephanieyax on Thu, 20 Mar 2014 04:48:00)
Works great. No problems.
No audio books (by Jon64water on Thu, 20 Mar 2014 03:47:00)
Needs to be able to read the book to you like a normal kindle. Then I would give it 4 or 5 stars.
Great app but pages don't turn smoothly (by Savannah416 on Thu, 20 Mar 2014 03:41:00)
One of my favorite apps but latest upgrade doesn't allow pages to flip smoothly. I have an iPhone 4
Front page app! (by Navy Chikita on Wed, 19 Mar 2014 22:55:00)
Love this app! Has had a prominent place on my phone ever since I downloaded it. LOTS of books in my library. *****Only thing I'd request is a way to clear all bookmarks when I finish a book so I can read it again later***
Excellent for reading (by DorottiCamp on Wed, 19 Mar 2014 08:00:00)
I never touched an app like this until I realized that digital books are cheaper when you're going to school. I've used this app for several of my college textbooks and it's been smooth sailing. Importing books and other documents was also easy, with larger files taking more time (as expected). Chapter and header lines import great, and allow for quick skipping through. (Just make sure the book or doc already has headings and chapter markers; not all of them do.) For people who like highlighting , this app might be your downfall. As far as I know, I haven't found any sort of highlighting feature or annotation option, which limits this app's abilities for students or editors. I would recommend this app for people who are avid or leisure readers, as well as broke college students who prefer digital books.
Not satisfied with the English-Chinese Dictionary (by GenuineApper on Tue, 18 Mar 2014 02:08:00)
On my iPhone, the dictionary only displays two rows. First row is the word itself, second row is the pronunciation. Neither of these two is what I wanted to look up. If I want see Chinese definition, I have to tap the "see full definition" button. It's such a hassle. Could you plz fix it?

Hands-down the best reading app I've seen! (by YoshiJoshi124 on Sun, 16 Mar 2014 15:33:00)
I downloaded this because I recently got a kindle paper white, and although this is no paper white (because I downloaded this app onto my iPhone), it's pretty darn close! I always prefer to keep my electronics to a low brightness, and even if I have the brightness at the lowest on my iPhone, there is an option within the kindle app to lower it even further. This makes it ideal for night time reading, for those nights when you just can't fall asleep. The reading screen is clean and beautiful compared to other apps like iBooks or overdrive. Fonts are obviously changeable, and there are the options of white, sepia, and nighttime, an option I actually wish was on my paper white! As long as your devices are connected to the Internet, your reading place syncs between devices. Overall, the brightness feature and the clean simple interface really stand out to me, and make this app a must-have.
Love Kindle (by Beluga fodder on Sun, 16 Mar 2014 03:10:00)
Still the best app for reading, period
Too limited (by pg1000 on Sat, 15 Mar 2014 16:51:00)
This app is too limited; not enough features or tools.
Can’t change fonts (by Botsmack on Fri, 14 Mar 2014 17:36:00)
I don’t like how certain books and/or publishers won’t let you change the fonts from the default. No matter what I select, it keeps the font originally used when I first opened the book. I also wish there was a way to force left-aligned text instead of using justified. I know this last part has been a complaint for an extremely long time. Ever since getting my iPad mini with Retina, I have started reading books in iBooks, because of the better fonts and control over the text layout. It may seem small, but these features matter to me when I’m reading text for long periods of time.
Almost like using a kindle (by LiciD on Fri, 14 Mar 2014 16:50:00)
Most of the features are the same as using a kindle, but navigating back to your library or the store is sometimes tricky.
Great (by AlanHughes on Fri, 14 Mar 2014 08:56:00)
Visually, there is no reading app more enjoyable. A number of fonts to chose from, the ability to adjust font size, line height, and margins all separate from each other should be a mandatory requirement from Apple when building reading apps and Kindle is the only one that actually does. A few things don't work the greatest, like collections not carrying over the cloud to other devices or Kindle apps, but at least they are available on individual devices. Also, not being able to arrange files within a collection is irritating. Personal docs work great in this app but not being available for the desktop app is annoying. I also preferred the original layout with the tabs on top to jump back and forth from books, to documents, to collections, to newsstand, etc. It was just a lot easier.
Good but... (by Fvfyhsgjfgrgdfgf on Thu, 13 Mar 2014 22:07:00)
This is a good app if you have a kindle and a second device because you done have to re-purchase your books! The problem is, it won't let you purchase the book you choose directly from your device.It only allows the options of adding to wish list or downloading a sample. This really ticked me off, but other than that, great app!
Bug with new iOS (by 13qr87?r on Thu, 13 Mar 2014 02:08:00)
Since the latest iOS update the app keeps signing me out daily and erasing the books on my iPad. It won't sync back either so I have to spend a lot of time re-downloading books and finding my current page number..
Great app (by Likefeather on Wed, 12 Mar 2014 14:56:00)
Very easy to use. I love reading books on my phone.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 501th to 550th
Good app, but with flaws. (by AARON KARP on Wed, 12 Mar 2014 14:29:00)
Two flaws: (1) please make it so the screen doesn't go blank for two seconds every time I switch back to the app, (2) please make the definition window the full length of the screen in landscape (older versions had this feature). Otherwise, a very good app that I use nearly every day.
Lame can't copy (by Dawshoss707 on Wed, 12 Mar 2014 04:51:00)
I like to cut and paste sections to my notes app and type out thoughts under them, it helps me think out the issues and organize main points and thoughts. It's ridiculous I can't copy my selections. What, do they think I'm going to copy the entire book by highlighting it all? Get real and add some flexibility. I own these books I should be able to use them decently.
Kindle app for IPad (by Hate dumb apps on Tue, 11 Mar 2014 03:28:00)
This app doesn't even work. I can't even log in. A complete waste of time. Who develops these things? Funny I can log into all my other Apple accounts. Hmmm...
Purchases go to iPad, then back to cloud (by Your favorite stalker on Tue, 11 Mar 2014 01:10:00)
This has been happening for a month or so. I purchase a book and send to my iPad. It shows in the "device" list. I click and read a page or two. Then the book (not the app) closes and it's no longer on my device and I have to download it again. I have the second version of the iPad (March 2011 release). Anyone else?
I wish… (by Mi. 13 on Mon, 10 Mar 2014 23:51:00)
I am a reading addict. I love to read on my Kindle And on my Kindle apps. There is one thing that I wish I could change about all my devices with Kindle. I wish there was a way to indicate when a book is finished being bread whether or not that book is downloaded to the device. Sometimes I lose track of which ones I have read and which ones I haven't. If there were a way to mark books as read, that would be amazing.
Awesome for commutes (by YugoDriver on Mon, 10 Mar 2014 06:22:00)
I use this on my iPad, Kindle, and iPhone and it's awesome. Simple app that gets the job done. The best part is having your whole kindle library simultaneously available on all of your devices. This lets me read a bit on whatever device I have on me at the time and then pick it up on the iPad when I get home.
Love it just want book summaries (by Erica Spangler on Sun, 09 Mar 2014 19:16:00)
I love this app. I would like to be able to look at the book's summary before downloading it to my ipad. This is a feature that would dramatically help my experience. Other than that this app is awesome and the newer features have been here at upgrades,
I only get samples (by Anonymous 345279 on Sun, 09 Mar 2014 04:10:00)

PLEASE enable cross device transfer of color coded highlights (by harleyrider75 on Sat, 08 Mar 2014 08:38:00)
This app is wonderful and I'm happy with it in every regard EXCEPT the fact that any color coded highlights (pink/blue/orange) that you make on one device don't get transferred to your other devices. Color coded highlights (pink/blue/orange) made on one device show up as yellow on all other devices. I was unaware of this surprising design shortcoming and spent literally hundreds of hours color coding the highlights in many of my Kindle ebook purchases. I thought that the project was worthwhile because I would have these meticulous notes forever. I was SUPREMELY disappointed to discover that all my efforts were wasted when I purchased a new iPhone and uploaded all my Kindle ebooks to my new device. All the highlights showed up yellow so I thought that I had made an app setting mistake. I got in touch with the Kindle app customer service department and to my dismay I was told that nothing was wrong with the settings. I was told that colored highlights (other than yellow) are only available on the device on which they were made. In light of the fact that most people replace their devices (iPhone/laptops/Kindle) every few years, I believe that this is a very negative app design. I would venture to say that I am not the only person to run into this problem and I have to believe that the tens of thousands of students that Kindle hopes to pull into their customer base would require and greatly appreciate this functionality in the app. PLEASE correct this design over site!
Cross platform is Key! (by GreenApple00000 on Sat, 08 Mar 2014 02:09:00)
This application works fine and as intended, but there is still room for more features! I also really enjoy reading on which ever tablet I desire. I only noticed a few bugs with the page animation (I like the real book feel). As mentioned before, there is still room for more!
Page skipping (by Momof2sweetgirls on Fri, 07 Mar 2014 16:28:00)
I have never had a problem with this app until the latest update. I use the read aloud option on my ipad and with this latest update it skips pages over and over again. Please create a fix for this!!!! This is so frustrating. I would have given this app 5 stars before this update, now I don't even know why I'm giving it 2 stars.

I have an iPhone 5c (by Jessica Rene Nath on Wed, 05 Mar 2014 10:42:00)
I have an iPhone 5c and this app only lets me sample books after I have purchased them!!!! Plz fix
Easy to use (by Eleshu57 on Wed, 05 Mar 2014 01:37:00)
One of the few if not the only app I can give five stars. I really like the highlight abilities. Allows me to go back to favorite quotes or pages. Thanks Why don't you write apps for others as well????
Please add "scrolling text" otherwise it's iBooks for me. (by Codowlsky Polopumus on Tue, 04 Mar 2014 18:33:00)
The kindle app is good but I use iBooks instead due to one simple feature: scrolling. For whatever reason, I really prefer scrolling through the book top to bottom as if it's one continuous page. This is just a better experience as opposed to "flipping" left to right, at least for me. For this reason alone, I buy everything through even iBooks even when iBooks is more expensive for a particular title. The only time I use kindle is when I'm reading a book my wife purchases that piques my interest. Please add this option. Please! You'll have yourself at least one loyal customer who buys 15-20 books a year and I'm sure that I am not alone.
Like it! (by ianlotinsky on Tue, 04 Mar 2014 00:12:00)
It's saved me a few times when I needed to read a book quickly.
Love it! (by StephA81 on Mon, 03 Mar 2014 10:49:00)
I'm an addict when it comes to reading and this app allows me to feed my addiction to books unavailable on other ebook apps!!
Ok (by nessarenee on Mon, 03 Mar 2014 02:29:00)
It's a good app Idk how to buy the books on the app It just says it's a sample
Text Justification (by SelenaFan01 on Sun, 02 Mar 2014 16:19:00)
This app is great! I just have a little suggestion. Is there any way we could have the option to align the text the way we'd like? I like reading with justified text.
Better than my Kindle (by McKenzieC on Sun, 02 Mar 2014 14:59:00)
You don't get page animation with the Kindle Fire so I prefer the App. I've never had a problem downloading or any problems with crashing. I have the App on both iPhone 5 and iPad. I love it! I don't use my Kindle Fire at all. Sorry I spent money buying it.
good app, but it crashes if I download personal document (by headradiobadtv on Sat, 01 Mar 2014 03:23:00)
As title described. I am not sure if the size of my PDF or the number of personal documents causes crash. But definitely I am experiencing this annoying issue. Please try to find out why and fix this bug!
This app is awesome!!!!! (by Clock dial on Sat, 01 Mar 2014 02:10:00)
Kindle gives you a variety of good books with even better ones too
Little Glitch (by zenwabi on Fri, 28 Feb 2014 21:36:00)
Great app, but current version has a little glitch. After loading a book to read, the current page is frozen, and you cannot turn the page for several minutes. Assume the developers know this and are trying to fix it. Also, recent reviewer is wrong, as Kindle app does have highlighting tools.
What's going on? (by flybirdie555 on Fri, 28 Feb 2014 18:02:00)
It appears an update is needed or that a bug is screwing things up. Have read other reviews and seen some people with the same problem and some people indicating no problem. When I search for a book it searches only in my library but a few months ago it was fine and it took me to the store as I prefer. I do not want to have to go on the Internet Kindle site and find a book by it and then find it and download it to my iPhone.
eTextbooks not compatible with iPhone 5 (by Kev0000 on Fri, 28 Feb 2014 16:47:00)
My 4 eTextbooks cannot be viewed on my iPhone 5, so I would have to say this app is worthless since it can't read the 4 kindle eTextbooks I need it for.
Not always compatible (by andythechef on Thu, 27 Feb 2014 16:31:00)
Works when it works but I've bought 2 expensive ebooks recently, one at $70, that aren't compatible with the phone app. Get with the program.
My Favorite App (by Kpeck72 on Thu, 27 Feb 2014 16:31:00)
This app, which I have both on iPhone and iPad gets a lot of use from me. I have never had a single problem with it and love that all of my accounts sync up and I can pick where I left off, even on a different device!
Love it! (by RedWindGypsy on Thu, 27 Feb 2014 01:44:00)
Enjoy this app! No need for another device, it's all here on my phone.

Kindle review (by Jimmy charlles on Wed, 26 Feb 2014 11:37:00)
I have Kindle on my iPad for travel or to just sit around and read. It is convenient and very welI done. I travel often and it is wonderful not having to lug around a bulky book. As far as my reliance on the Kindle app. I would have to say don't leave home without it.
Favorite reading app (by Swayde27 on Wed, 26 Feb 2014 01:39:00)
I have this Kindle app as well as Overdrive, iBooks and Nook apps. The new feature of showing the time it will take to finish reading a book at your pace is so neat. I love it and it does make this my favorite app to use for reading.
App is not like having a Kindle (by Liesit on Wed, 26 Feb 2014 00:10:00)
I love the app. I use it on my iPhone & Kindle. I too use it for textbooks & It seems like a lot of the problems people have are not present on the actual Kindle itself. Note-taking is a function available on the kindle. As is being able to remove books. Not all publishers allow these features though. I have a few books (or pdfs) that won't allow me to do anything but read and highlight. I do wish there were some kind of page numbering and actual formatting (again, depends on publisher too) but other than that I really enjoy the app!
iPad air crashing (by B I n go on Tue, 25 Feb 2014 23:53:00)
I used to love this app but now it won't work. Always crashes. Tried reloading, restarting. Please fix the bug in this new update. Also let me search my library easier , like a file manager by date uploaded.
Awesome reader! (by -Kling2Kong- on Tue, 25 Feb 2014 02:51:00)

Diverse (by Poeticblade on Mon, 24 Feb 2014 18:30:00)

Absolutely a Must Have! (by Lillith13 on Mon, 24 Feb 2014 12:02:00)
I don't know what I ever did without this app. it guarantees that I always have my current book ready at hand. It also gives me a few moments of relative quiet in the car when my children read quietly to each other in the back seat. So easy to use; no guess work required in its operation.
Awesome (by Venusdemilo83 on Mon, 24 Feb 2014 09:35:00)

Poor, very poor (by Scott5664 on Mon, 24 Feb 2014 00:45:00)
Way to easy lo lose your place, and if you do, you'll never find it. The content is good, but the app is poor!
Works as intended (by Burkepmed on Mon, 24 Feb 2014 00:20:00)
No problems reading a simple business book. The highlights work well. Notes are a little clunky. Downloading fine, though I have to work from a laptop/desktop to do that.
Great app (by WordsFinds on Mon, 24 Feb 2014 00:15:00)
I love how I can use this app with my library card. I like how it will automatically sync for bookmarks and will auto return. Use this all the time!
Great app except... (by Seth Rosenblum on Sun, 23 Feb 2014 18:11:00)
One very annoying problem that has never been fixed...... The ability to place a bookmark by simply swiping down from the right hand corner of the page. It actually does place a bookmark but unless you tap to show the menu you can't tell that bookmark is there. Why can't such a simple feature work right after all these years?
Not what I was looking for (by Trinette90 on Sun, 23 Feb 2014 00:53:00)
I was wanting more of an app that I can do a to-read list, rate the books I've read, and know the order if series.

I wish there was a way... (by 132176 on Sat, 22 Feb 2014 12:32:00)
I love this alternative so much more than textbooks. I just wish all my text books. But there are still some things that I prefer way more to textbooks than the iPad. I wish I could have the option to write notes in the margins in my own handwriting- like being able to bracket paragraphs. I used to use different and multiple color bookmarks to remind me where an important idea was. The app only allows me to bookmark with one color. Which makes me have to rethink why I bookmarked it in the first place. But that's ok. Just little things. Otherwise I think the app is pretty much perfect.
Great app! (by Jootha29869 on Sat, 22 Feb 2014 04:14:00)
Use it daily, never lets me down.
What happened? Can't buy books (by Paid Subscriber 2 on Fri, 21 Feb 2014 03:07:00)
The app would be great if I could download books again. There is no other app that allows you to download books from.
Wow! Latest Update is Great! (by MacGr on Fri, 21 Feb 2014 03:04:00)
Despite Apple forcing other e-readers to remove store buttons from their apps, Kindle is still the best e-reader. Also, it's easy to keep a link to the kindle store in a folder with my other shopping apps, so buying books is still very easy. This app is feature-rich, better than iBooks by a long shot. And syncs data with Kindle Fire flawlessly, so I'm always on the right page.
Take a 2nd look (by NA-rate on Thu, 20 Feb 2014 23:36:00)
-Cross-platform compatibility nonexistent -Always on DRM -Cannot logout of app -Poor support for audiobooks -Tab and note support could be better -Cannot share books, like you could a "REAL" or non-DRM book -Cannot hide books; synced accounts see everything or nothing
Excellent! (by WRKerr on Thu, 20 Feb 2014 14:14:00)
There's so much to like about Kindle, that asking for improvements may just be selfish, but here goes: My wish is regarding how my Library continues to display the books that have been read, and it clutters things up. I have not found a workaround and very well could be missing the way to better manage. I quit buying through iTunes and try to only buy my books through the Kindle store.
Great, just one thing (by DBatalla on Thu, 20 Feb 2014 09:16:00)
Wouldn't it be great if you guys let us create folder by type of book? Business, biographies, history etc. this would make everything easier and more real!!

Perfect for my iPad (by GladysP. on Wed, 19 Feb 2014 14:46:00)
When ebooks first came out I did not like reading off of a screen, no matter which company's device I purchased. I've tried an app from a competitor and it is nice, but it doesn't beat the Kindle app for ease of use and number of options. Ebooks will never be my first choice over actual books, but when I do read them, it is always on my iPad with the Kindle app.
Book covers are to small to read. (by Jtwitch on Wed, 19 Feb 2014 02:13:00)

Good overall reader only (by KIF54 on Tue, 18 Feb 2014 18:09:00)
For just reading books, very good, solid app. It is not much of a library manager. So, archiving books, groups, etc, it is very light. Also, with paper books, I can "loan" a book to a friend. There does not seem to be a way to do this.
Terrible (by Cee jay11111 on Tue, 18 Feb 2014 15:36:00)

I Love It!!!! (by Veteran01 on Tue, 18 Feb 2014 05:06:00)
This has been a wonderful! I have an IPAD AIR. I also have vision problems which makes reading regular books difficult. The KINDLE has made reading fun again.

VERY GOOD!! (by Barneypilot on Tue, 18 Feb 2014 01:50:00)
This is now my goto reader! I order ALL books in this format if they are available. I frequently order the paper books IN ADDITION to the kindle book. This is my favorite way to read almost any book!
Disappeared after update (by Ninjawebstudios on Mon, 17 Feb 2014 18:11:00)
This app was awesome until the Feb. 2014 update. The app now disappeared from my iPad mini. I can't redownload it because it says I have it already, but it doesn't open from the App Store or come up in my search.
Idk (by Mr. VT12345🐶 on Mon, 17 Feb 2014 17:37:00)
I would like to choose which books to download to my device. I don't like the fact that every time I turn on my device it starts to download. Then it starts to use all my data or it slows my device down. I'm not able to read it while it's downloading. So will you fix it where we can pick and choose which books to download like the nook I don't like the nook but it can change the color of you page to any color not just the three colors kindle gives to you. Change the color of the words. Can we get some better features then what you have done. The kindle app has a long way to go before you can get a 5✨✨✨✨✨ from me and a few others.

Worked better a year ago (by Kangashiner on Mon, 17 Feb 2014 12:47:00)
I have been using Kindle app for over three years, and I'm sad to say functionality has decreased. My main issue is that it "buffers" for up to 20 seconds before opening to the last page read. I had this problem before the update, and the update didn't fix it. I would love to just go back to original app and be done!
Highlight color problem?! (by mdwasim on Mon, 17 Feb 2014 06:19:00)
A strange issue showed up recently, in one of my book highlights are not opaque, highlighted text becomes almost invisible, only I got is highlight color. Also check what happens when we keep changing color of highlights. The text hides completely!!..
8 seconds (by arthritix on Mon, 17 Feb 2014 01:04:00)
Takes around 8 seconds to load the app when I have a textbook open. Slow to load pages. Nearly as bad as App Store.
Love it (by Rose hips on Sun, 16 Feb 2014 22:57:00)
Couldn't do without it. I have an eye disease that makes my eyesight bad. I can select a large font that is very comfortable for me. I also appreciate the flexibility of this program. I can use it on all of my different format devices. Love it!
No in app link to kindle store? (by Jujubeano on Sun, 16 Feb 2014 21:32:00)

Love it!!! (by Sunshine962 on Sun, 16 Feb 2014 12:58:00)
I read on all my devices kindle, iPad and iPhone. I really like that they are all synced together except sometimes my iPhone app is behind in percentage read when I open the app. But overall, I Love It!!
Don't download new version (by Loopy2005 on Sun, 16 Feb 2014 08:41:00)
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.
Excellent for reading (by Pale Glint on Sun, 16 Feb 2014 06:28:00)
I never touched an app like this until I realized that digital books are cheaper when you're going to school. I've used this app for several of my college textbooks and it's been smooth sailing. Importing books and other documents was also easy, with larger files taking more time (as expected). Chapter and header lines import great, and allow for quick skipping through. (Just make sure the book or doc already has headings and chapter markers; not all of them do.) For people who like highlighting , this app might be your downfall. As far as I know, I haven't found any sort of highlighting feature or annotation option, which limits this app's abilities for students or editors. I would recommend this app for people who are avid or leisure readers, as well as broke college students who prefer digital books.
Best E-reader App Hands Down (by woodcider on Sun, 16 Feb 2014 05:56:00)
I've tried OverDrive, Stanza and iBooks. The Kindle app is by far and away superior. Smooth page turning transitions do more than you would think in making for an organic reading experience. And unlike iBooks, being able to lock your orientation as an app specific feature is key.
Terrible app (by Samala Lennox on Sat, 15 Feb 2014 19:25:00)
I was thinking this would be a great app to be able to "sync" my kindle with on my iPad. Not happening. No matter the advice it's not syncing my books previously purchased. I've resorted to the kindle cloud. Sad...
Love it! (by Cryptofreq on Fri, 14 Feb 2014 17:41:00)
It's a great app. I love it. I love using it.
Page Numbers not correct (by CaliAly on Fri, 14 Feb 2014 15:28:00)
Ever since the new update, the page numbers at the bottom are incorrect. It only shows up to p. 122 and has stayed there even though I've passed that mark. The percentage of the book read seems to be right, as that keeps updating, but it's really frustrating to not see that I'm constantly on p. 122 of 122 (& at 26% of the book). Anyone else noticed this?
Great reading (by Sastor on Fri, 14 Feb 2014 07:52:00)
Nice app. Just wish it would do online purchase.
Good for reading , needs work otherwise (by mallyvai on Fri, 14 Feb 2014 04:07:00)
This is a great app for reading Kindle books on the iPad. Since 95% of the time I use the app to do precisely that, I'm fairly happy with. It's fast, quick, stable. The page-turning mechanisms (tap and/or swipe) are intuitive and fun. Unfortunately, it's pretty bad for everything else: > Annotations and note taking UI are clunky > I can't purchase books! A very glaring omission. I would love, for example, to be able to get to the end of one book in a series and see the next book in the series. Or see related books by the same author, or other books in the same genre... The list goes on.
Best reading App (by penbo on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 21:04:00)
I have been using this app for many years and have never had a problem with it. It works great and is simple to navigate through book choices and options. I carry it with me everywhere.
What would I do without it... (by MinnieB on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 17:07:00)
Love my kindle app. I have not had any difficulties with it and I use it continuously. I use it everywhere. Downloads are easy and fast. Love it and can't imagine being without it.
No longer functions smoothly (by Teitatwo22 on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 15:32:00)
App now stutters and freezes during page animations, new update ruined my experience on my iPod touch 5th generation.
Annoying (by Traci01801 on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 15:26:00)
Can't even get it to load
Excellent (by DaBKLYNKid on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 15:08:00)
Enjoy the Kindle App immensely. It doesn't get much better then this for those of us who love to read.
Kindle App (by Scruumbled on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 14:07:00)
Love the Kindle App. Very easy to use.
Kindle (by 10/4peanuts on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 12:24:00)
Very good app for the people who love to read and love the convenience of books on their device. I do find it hard to delete books that I've already read or that I don't want. This could be improved upon. Thanks.
Great App (by MikeS.GoBears on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 06:29:00)
Having the ability to read an entire book on a phone is so much easier than having to carry a book around.
Excellent! Love It! (by jNimble on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 03:42:00)
Very nice app. Does exactly as advertised. Be forewarned it does not cook breakfast or do laundry. If used correctly it can prevent papers from flying away in mildly windy situations.
Best app ever (by ccgirl123 on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 02:44:00)
Best app ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Always reliable (by GC in Philly on Thu, 13 Feb 2014 01:29:00)
Solid app that doesn't crash and let's me read. Some readers are so fancy they distract from reading, this one doesn't. Good options and features but not too bulky. I love being able to share quotes on twitter.
Very frustrating!!!! (by Moughan420 on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 20:37:00)
I have plenty of books on my kindle and can only download book samples on my iPhone app, I will be selling my kindle and staying with apple, thanks for nothing!!!!!
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 601th to 650th

The update is fixed and it works great!
Mr (by ROMO59 on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 06:11:00)
The best thing ever in the web if you like reading!!! Thanks!!
More colors for highlight? (by Tamako-chan on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 02:45:00)
No matter how much I enjoy this app and thousands of kindle books so far, one little thing that really bugs me is that there are too few colors for annotation. And they are not beautiful, comparing to colors from other apps in the market (like iBook or Adobe PDF). I don't know if you guys can fix this but that would be totally awesome. Overall, I really love the app. It has sleek UI, fast processing and very useful dictionary. It has came this far.. 98% !!!! So, could you please consider the colors option? Thank you so much.
Kindle app (by Numbers person on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 02:28:00)
Great for obtaining and reading books.
Bring back page numbers (by briarraindancer on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 02:11:00)
I like the new update but I'd at least like the option to see page numbers in the view screen if not all the time.
Wish prime was available (by JaminJamie413 on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 02:11:00)
Love this app. I use it everyday. I purchased the prime membership..unfortunate it isn't valid for apple devices.
Kindle App v. Kindle (by BobT1946 on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 00:46:00)
I've had a Kindle DX since they were first available and love it, but the Kindle app on my iPad is far superior. I have had absolutely no problems with it. The only improvement would be to make it easier to download books directly to the iPad instead of downloading to the Kindle, then downloading from the cloud.
Luv it! (by GigiBibi6 on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 00:28:00)
Particularly like how Ivan go from iPhone ipad and it syncs. I also like how it figures out your reading speed and tells you how much time you have left to finish chpt and book.
Crashes (by XXOXOOOX on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 00:21:00)
The newest version will not stay open for longer than 20 seconds. All other versions worked great. Is very frustrating right now. Please repair ASAP!
S'better (by JVan9 on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 22:23:00)
Feb 11 2014 update: sync problem seems to be mostly fixed. STILL no library management feature, which is a drag Some problems w/cross-dev ice sync?', no way 2 organize library, can't borrow frm owners library, otherwise, it's ok
Love it! (by Juanimommy on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 19:54:00)
This is by far the most used app on my phone, I love it!
I love my ap!!!! (by rberg76 on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 19:27:00)

Love my Kindle app! (by Megakw on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 17:59:00)
When I'm out and about without my Kindle and I have a few minutes to spare, I always use this app. I love how it syncs up with the location and book I'm reading. Can't recommend it enough.
Wish list (by Jamesmom0710 on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 16:52:00)
REALLY wish I could click on a book and see the synopsis. Would like to be able to archive books also. Other than that, great app.
Love the Kindle app! (by Beadywoman on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 15:31:00)
I think my husband likes my Kindle more than I do - no more piles of books laying around the house!
Love my kindle app (by Stacyjo1211 on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 14:11:00)
I never have a problem. Downloads quickly!
Great app (by Greeves0844 on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 13:20:00)
I read all the time and I love that I can sync each book with my kindle and the app
Bug: English to Chinese definition display issue (by 南国飘雪 on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 00:32:00)
Updated: the kindle app is worse than before and the worst one I used to reading ebook in my iPhone and iPad. The kindle guy is too arrogant to listen end user's feedback. After several update, this app has no us full feature introduced, but made some old feature worst, such as very bad definition display, no copy/paste, always sync up to the most further location (not latest), no gesture support, no multi account support. Can you fix some real issue? In some cases, the definition of English to Chinese definition can not be displayed. It happened on iPhone landscape model and iPad (both portrait and landscape model) Please fix this bug.
Love me some Kindle... (by Snug3161 on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 00:23:00)
I've become a reading junky. It is so great to be able to pick up one of my devices and jump right into the same book!
Love my Kindle (by Wade1509 on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 00:17:00)
I have a Kindle Paperwhite and love it. I usually read at night in bed. During the day, however, I'm usually on the go. Having the app on my iPhone makes continued reading very convenient. Love the whisper sync so I don't lose my place when switching back and forth. Have had no problems at all - 2 years of the app and 6 months of the Paperwhite.
Kindle app (by Queentashyra on Tue, 11 Feb 2014 00:05:00)
I use it on the iPhone 5 but I also have a kindle. Works great for me except even on the phone you need wifi to download a book not 4G.
Awesome reading app (by ExoStreaM on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 23:03:00)
Simple to use, good readability on an iPhone 5, extensive selection of books at cheap prices. I've stopped buying paperbacks for the past 3 years.
Great app! (by matnorma on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 22:30:00)
This is a great app. Works well and is easy to navigate to and within your content. This is second only to my actual Kindle device.
Kindle (by CatLuver6 on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 22:25:00)
Great assortment of books at a reasonable price, no shipping and handling charges and all the genres I enjoy.
Great App but... (by KJ2300 on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 22:15:00)
It would be great if I could organize the books and see a short synopsis.
No highlighting feature (by Lvl2Babbs on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 20:36:00)
Solid app. Would be 5 stars, 10/10 if it had a highlighting feature. It has a notecard feature, but no highlighting. This is immensely troublesome, especially for those who utilize e-textbooks.
Works well (by MennoSandy on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 18:13:00)
It works, what more needs said.
Used to be a good app until the update (by Embroiderygal on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 17:27:00)
The update said it fixes stability issues. I wasn't having any issues until this latest update. It no longer stays on the page I left off at. It either goes backwards or forward 10-20 pages so I have to hunt to find where I left off.
Every day, no complaints (by YoplaitBaby on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 17:04:00)
I'm a huge reader and use this app almost every day. It's convenient, intuitive and has the functionality I need to read. Never had a complaint, highly recommended.
Love it. (by CaribBeanC on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 15:56:00)
Does what it says. One tap purchase on my Kindle sends books to my iPhone immediately. Bookmarks keep up most of the time. Great app for an avid reader.
Screen lock! (by Dangling Pear on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 15:23:00)
If you are a reclining reader, to keep the screen from following the phone rotation, you can tap the page in LOWER RIGHT CORNER, a lock appears tap again it will appear as "unlocked." Tap for the choice you want, the best reading choice, then Lock it so it doesn't bounce back and forth between portrait/landscape view.
Never had a problem (by Tristan_jr on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 07:10:00)
This app has been very reliable and easy to use.
Love it (by Shoni18 on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 03:54:00)
I love kindle. It works great and I'm always on it. One suggestion would be to allow pursuing of books through the app. I can search books, but have to open up an internet browser to make the purchase. Then it would be perfect!
Like it (by AmyLou96 on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 03:00:00)
Usually use it to read rather then my outdated kindle.

Voracious Reader (by Tonia Cherry on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 02:22:00)
Great app! No problems at all! Download the app. Can go from reading kindle to iPhone. Wonderful!
Kindle Ap (by Nembabill on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 02:12:00)
I am totally addicted to this ap. since u hit it I've only read two real books. Every other book I've read has been on thus Ap.
Solid app (by Lizzie_14 on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 01:30:00)
It's easy to read books on this app anytime anywhere. I also love how easy it is to look up words or google a phrase or translation simply by highlighting what you want to look up. It does drain the battery if used for too long though. Overall I would say this is a good app. I've used it for years without any complaints.
Love this App! (by Marygo2011 on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 01:06:00)
I absolutely love the Kindle App! I use it at work on my breaks & when I don't have my KindleFire w/ me! Lots of features overlap w/ what Kindle offers! I recommend it to any book lover!
Kindle app (by Wildlifemommy on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 23:43:00)
I love this app! I have it on my IPad also and it syncs my position in my book between the two.
Better than good but not perfect (by mbchamb on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 22:14:00)
It would be perfect if you could copy and paste from books. Going to website to copy and paste is a hassle.
One of my favorite apps (by AnsleyC on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 22:06:00)
I love having Kindle on my iPhone. It's convenient to read my books in any location. So far, the app has been 100% reliable. I highly recommend it.
Love it! (by Foster859 on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 20:36:00)
Great app! Love the ability to read so many books without filling up my home and especially love the fact it is much cheaper than the physical books.
Very happy (by TaipeiNY on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 20:29:00)
Personally, I have owned multiple kindles. However, when I got an iPad, I stopped using my kindle. I liked the lit back screen and the ease of use. I do miss my international 3G, which allowed me to buy books anywhere, but even still this app is pretty good.
Textbook Reader is Mediocre (by TeriDactyl9000 on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 20:25:00)
Most of my casual reading I do on my Kindle Keyboard because I really like the look of the e-ink as it's easier on the eyes in low light, and it's about 9000x lighter than my iPad when I'm laying in bed...or at least seems it when I fall asleep and drop it on my face. As a textbook reader, though, the Kindle app on iPad is just OK. Here's a rundown: PROS: • Page thumbnail viewer. Helps scroll back and forth between pages and chapters really excellently. Although it would be nice to be able to toggle it instead of it always being active and having it cover my screen if I accidentally tap on the page. • Annotation / Notepad feature is actually pretty cool. • Flash cards. Kinda works like the annotations only you can make key words flash cards and see ones other people have created. Kinda cool if you need that sorta thing. CONS: • The last version seems a little buggy when you highlight a passage—sometimes I have to tap on the passage a couple times before the highlight menu pops up. • The Dictionary box that pops up when you tap on a word IS FRIGGING HUGE. Geeze, guys, can't you reduce the size of that thing at all? At least have the ability to turn it off. • Margins are way too wide for textbooks, and text can only be blown up by the "close-up" hand gesture (whatever they call the opposite of "pinching"). Although since this is a textbook, the text size it understandable but it would be nice if the magnification stayed the same when you turned a page. Just blue-sky dreaming here. Mostly that Dictionary dialogue box is my main beef with the textbook viewer. The Kindle app for textbooks is FATHOMS better than it used to be when it first became available, but still needs a little tweaking.
Great (by Carrowlynn on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 20:02:00)
It's an awesome app. The only thing I wish would change is that you can't delete books off of cloud or your device.
Good (by Begah on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 19:09:00)
I enjoy my Kindle but I wish I could delete the books I have read if I wanted to.
Brilliant (by Andycon on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 18:12:00)
Best way to read books.
Great! (by Devineone3 on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 17:36:00)
I've already read a couple books on it and had no problems.

Reading is fun (by Purple dragonfly1961 on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 17:12:00)
Loving my collections
Archive (by Draw some junkie on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 16:02:00)
I do not have the actual kindle, just the app for my iPad so it may be just an app issue. I wish I could archive my read books to streamline my choices. And when I put a book in a collection I would like it to drop off the main library (or have the option to do that). Otherwise I love kindle.
Altogether Pleased (by Ratabor on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 15:39:00)
Kindle Reader on IOS devices has certainly dealt with continuous changes in operating system details each time updates occur. Even still, I find it is my got-to reader with no hesitation or reservation. The crashes mentioned by others are very rare and have almost never delayed access to my content. I recommend the Kindle reader to anyone who would read books on IOS devices.
Use it more than my 'white (by Jeff the Nuke on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 13:48:00)
This app is my main mechanism for reading newspapers, novels and magazines. It doesn't crash. It's reliable. Keep up the good work. Running 6.1.X on my iPod Touch 5th gen.
New Kindle Version (by Önska on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 13:33:00)
I HATE the new design!!!! It's so bad, do NOT download it.
Beware updates (by Elizab3thTX on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 12:53:00)
When they say the update only does "bug fixes and stability improvements" When they apparently mean is "we are taking away features and not bothering to tell you" Where is my ability to copy and paste quotes? Where is my time left in book? .....
Enjoying kindle (by MermaidMN on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 09:44:00)
I find it so simple, easy and fast to load books and read them on my iPad.
Small print option (by Gamesxxx on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 08:37:00)
An excellent app for IPad, thank you. My one complaint is that your latest update took away the really small font. That is what I use when reading in bed, more characters per page. Please bring it back.
Kindle reader (by Cleoten on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 07:21:00)
The only way to read a book! I have keyboard kindle and PC kindle and smartphone kindle. My library on iCloud can be accessed with any of my devices. If I find myself stranded or waiting in line, I can enjoy reading my book to pass the time. It's wonderful! I can purchase a new book and be reading in minutes. It's amazing.
After changing into new GUI it becomes extremely slow (by gtianp on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 06:23:00)
It is Slow in flipping pages, taking notes ,looking up dictionary and after recent updates there is not even a slight improvement.
Kindle App (by Vtladie on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 05:54:00)
I love this app with the exception that I would like to categorize my books in different "folders". This is a real frustration for me. Other than that this is my favorite reading app!
Excellent. (by Tuckyourchin on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 04:55:00)
This latest version of the app is stable and as good as Apple will let it be.
Nice (by spinner2055 on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 03:59:00)
I have had no problems with this app. Works great!
I love this app! (by Jwinid on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 03:07:00)
The Kindle app makes reading so enjoyable. I can make the pages readable for me, the dictionary is handy for getting a good definition, and I can take a huge variety of books with me wherever I go.
Oh m g!! Love it (by Horses and puppies on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 02:18:00)
Super easy to use, quick uploads for your books, and absolutely no hassle. Would recommend to anyone who loves to read( obviously I have the iPhone app)... Can't wait to get an actual kindle :)
Great (by LisaDav on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 01:39:00)
Works great. No issues on the iPad or my Galaxy note II
Best Reader App (by MomsDukes61 on Sun, 09 Feb 2014 00:19:00)
This is Probably the best reader app that I have. It is easy to you. I like the feel of the app when reading books. A plus is the ability to place your books in categories.
Kindle (by Loanne11 on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 23:13:00)
Great app! Use it almost every day.
Love it (by DMGeoff on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 21:53:00)
I love the Kindle app. I can get my books and documents. I can adjust the font size to make it easier on the eyes. Could be better with folders to put books in etc but still enjoy using the app!
Could be really great (by C Joan Schepperly on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 21:31:00)
I wish it worked as well on my iPad. I love collections but it isn't accessible on my first gen. I wish it would sort by genre and could create collections within collections.
Good stuff!! (by Med El user on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 20:57:00)
Even though I have a Kindle, I love being able to read using my phone at times when my Kindle isn't with me (like when in bed)
Only one flaw (by Noonesperfect on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 20:40:00)
Wish I could completely remove a book from the library display on my iPad - my list is getting really cluttered, and I don't want to use folders.
Kindle app review (by MamatJ69 on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 20:25:00)
I love it!! It is my 2nd most used app, behind Facebook of course. I'm a vicarious reader so this is the perfect app for me. And I love that I can read on both my iPhone and kindle Fire. It's the only reading app that I use or need!!
Love the Kindle App!! (by jcp317 on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 20:07:00)
Works great! I use this app almost daily. If I were to have anything on my wish list to change it would be to have more sorting options. Regardless of that it's probably my favorite app!
Works Beautifully on iPhone 5S (by Gene Bailey on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 19:46:00)
Just needs to add the actual store in app so that I don't have to launch safari every time I want to access it.
Love this app! (by Badgin on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 19:41:00)
I love this app as it makes Kindle available on all my devices so I have access no matter where I am or which device I have. The Kindle is the best invention ever. I am a voracious reader and love having a "bookstore" at my finger tips!!
Love the app (by nhistory on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 19:11:00)
The kindle app was made for me. I always have my phone so I can read anywhere that I have a few minutes. You make it easy to increase the font and dim the background colors when needed. It's very responsive. I love it. I do wish you would let me use the kindle lending library on it. That would make it perfect.
Kindle app (by Morgie91011 on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 18:49:00)
I love it. It's easy and I never have problems. You can adjust it to your personal preferences and it has never frozen or not done what I wanted. Great app
Awesome app (by Trinjackiss on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 18:12:00)
Love this app!!!!!!!!
Works very well (by ReverendRick on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 18:08:00)
When I switched from a kindle tablet to the iPad, I needed something that I could read my extensive Kindle library on. This fits the bill and works very well. The only improvement I'd make is to include the copy function that the desktop version has ... I often quote others in my work, and it's a pain to copy them , especially when there's only one window available at a time.
BEST APP IN THE WORLD ESPECIALLY IF UR A BOOK READER (by Mia Elizabeth225 on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 18:05:00)
I love reading books and I like to read books everywhere I go . The best part is once u downloaded ur books u don't need the Internet to read them I love this app 4 ALL THOSE BOOK READERS OUT THERE DOWNLOAD THE BEST APP IN THE WORL EVER<3
Great app (by CaptainT2 on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 17:33:00)
I use this app to give me greater access to my library's e-books. It works flawlessly for me, syncs beautifully, and it is very easy to read. It's settings are very straightforward and versatile. Also, I love the Kindle app and have recommended it to all of my friends that wish Internet access to a world of literature.
Love my Kindle! (by Plantenergy on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 17:17:00)
With over 200 books stored, Kindle is my favorite App! Improvements are always being made and I have never had one problem with it. Thanks for an awesome App, Kindle Rocks! 😃
Kindle review (by swartzlady on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 16:46:00)
Always enjoy Kindle in its various forms. Haven't had any problems.
Needs PDF tweaking. (by Beenamensan on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 16:12:00)
Very handy! Love the app, but when viewing PDFs any notes made in file are not viewable as they are in Windows.
Love it (by Jes_Fry on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 15:34:00)
I've had no problems besides the fact I can't stop reading and I have all of my favorite books at my very fingertips! Love it!
Changed My Life (by Sister Pierre on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 14:45:00)
I love Kindle on my iPhone and iPad. I prefer it to iBooks because I get such a wider choice and usually a better price. By far it is the primary way I read. I love carrying a fabulous library in my pocket! BA Oakland, Ca.
Great app for readers (by Vanessa Mostrales on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 14:31:00)
I read a lot and am very happy with this app. Ive used it on my iPad before and now I use it on my mini as well as my phone. Very efficient and when I have to use my old Kindle (the one w/ keyboard) I miss this app and much rather prefer it. Only thing I wish is to be able to search my library for a specific book or be able to categorize my library by genre. Other than that it's perfect 😁
Excellent app to tie into the kindle (by badjuju on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 13:33:00)
I use this to read on my phone while I'm on the go, or when I just don't have the ability to carry my kindle along. Very useful!
One of my fav apps! (by Charms87 on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 13:24:00)
Love it! Always so convenient to have on the go or anywhere! ❤️
Kindle (by Train dodger11 on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 12:50:00)
Absolutely love my Kindle. Best app ever. I'm addicted/love reading. You need to get a kindle
Works well (by rckatz on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 12:22:00)
App works well, even allowing zoom on illustrations.
Needs work (by Badupgrade18 on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 11:46:00)
App crashes/freezes up frequently since the update. Once these are fixed, I'll update my rating.
Wonderful app (by Lucianoguera on Sat, 08 Feb 2014 11:46:00)
I love that I can read in all my devices and it syncs so it's knows where I am
Doesn't work since update (by Joe errrrrrrrr on Fri, 07 Feb 2014 14:31:00)
Library won't sync on my iPad since latest update. Even when I try a deregister and reregister my account, it won't let me because it says I have no internet access. I have full bars on my iPad and every other app easily connects online. I've even deleted the app and re-downloaded to no avail. Extremely frustrating.
Great (by Kay.joy on Fri, 07 Feb 2014 02:36:00)
Love my kindle app. It's a great way to read on the go. Plus books are often a lot cheaper
Can't access (by Jinjur143 on Fri, 07 Feb 2014 02:30:00)
I can't seem to access the last 5% of any book I own. Don't know what the bug is , but please fix it
Kindle (by Leesgrho on Thu, 06 Feb 2014 23:30:00)
Love it, no problems. I travel weekly and love reading, it makes life easy!!
Needs more changes (by Caron Barnhart on Thu, 06 Feb 2014 22:25:00)
I don't know what you've done, but this app was far better months and many updates ago. Bookmarks do not work, syncs do not work and there are many times I open it to find it has kicked me out to my library and the it takes forever to find my place. Please address these things in the next update.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 701th to 750th
Went down from a five! (by Joan=37 on Thu, 06 Feb 2014 20:09:00)
Used to be able to sync with my kindle. I have to remember where I am and turn the pages to where I am now. Can't leave a note about misspelled words or phrases. I am unable to change books around in categories or cloud on this app. I have to go on my kindle to change anything. Not good changes. Please fix.
Can't hide books (by eleanor&harry on Thu, 06 Feb 2014 13:31:00)
The app is pretty good considering iPad wasn't made for reading. I can adjust the brightness and size of print. That's the good. The bad is that you can't hide books. There's no "secret" or "personal" library. Sometimes you just don't want other people to know what you're reading or have read. It can be you don't share politics, the occasions I read "junk" as in "you spent money on that?" or other subject matter. Yes my iPad is password protected but people do read over your shoulder. Only other complaint is the bookmark doesn't always hold the place.
I've come to dread your "updates" (by Jinksed on Thu, 06 Feb 2014 05:05:00)
With the new update, the app either doesn't open at all, and then crashes. Or, it takes forever to open, and then crashes. Please fix this.
Reading Speed!!! (by Jacob Smith on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 21:34:00)
Reading speed still isn't fixed! Otherwise no issues with app!
I love the kindle app except ...... (by greeneyes55! on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 21:29:00)
I love kindle app on my iPhone but I hate that I can't download samples or purchase from the iPhone kindle app like I use to. It's very disappointing. I like that capability and miss it a lot. 3 words.....,,BRING IT BACK. I think I use to purchase more just because of that capability. :-)
Can't open (by Onlyonegal on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 21:06:00)
After update today the icon does not appear to be Kindle and will not open. Only way in is from update page. Not good hope it gets fixed have a lot of books to read.
Usually works, update broken (by billymeltdown on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 15:06:00)
When launched a spinner appears hiding the page view and it's never removed. You have to quit app and launch again to read your book until it happens again--every time you exit and return to app. Makes reading anything next to impossible. Hoped this new version would fix this bug, as it just started with previous version.
How do I log off. (by Fasted2002 on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 13:46:00)
Looks good, but can't find log-off from my account. Am I missing something?
Page Number (by Page# on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 13:34:00)
I just bought a book for my class and this thing doesn't even have real page numbers. How am I supposed to follow my syllabus?! Frustrated
Very good option (by masseyk55 on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 12:42:00)
This is an excellent app for an ebook reader. It does almost everything my "real" kindle does and is very convenient. In fact, I like the page turn option better on the iPhone version. I would suggest an option to remove all bookmarks. This would make it easier to switch from device to device and much easier for those of us who read books multiple times without having to navigate through the book to find where we actually are this go round.

Crashes - Unsable (by hackerz33 on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 00:54:00)
Downloaded 4.1.2 today and downloaded my first book. Could not buy from iPhone and had to complete the transaction from the Web browser. Once purchased, the book would not properly load and is completely unreadable on both my iPhone 5s and iPadAir. Not sure if it is bugs in the app or corruption in the book. The pop-up errors on my device state that an error occured and I should remove the book from my device and download again from the cloud. If that doesn't work deregister the app and register. Neither worked on either device. I even tried deleting the app and reinstalling. The concept is simple but Amzon can't seem to present set of pictures and text in a linear fashion so that the pages can be read. I will get blank pages and a spinner most often. The app will decide to jump to the middle of the book and not allow you to go to next or previous page. Very frustrating. The book in questions is "Scrum: A breathtakingly brief and agile introduction".
Justification (by Longnamedatttshopefullynottaken on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 00:25:00)
Why is there no option for anything except full justification. On larger. text settings this leaves huge ugly gaps that are distracting. Makes the iBooks app so much more appealing. This one thing makes the app almost unusable. See?
Newest kindle update (by No bookmark on Tue, 04 Feb 2014 23:29:00)
In the last two updates , the bookmark doesn't appear on the page when page animation is on. Have to turn page animation off to be able to see it.
Potential improvement (by alpsnow61 on Tue, 04 Feb 2014 22:30:00)
I don't know why, but I really hope this app could support multiple accounts. Other than that, this app meets the basic standards for a reading app.
Excellent (by Krug j. on Tue, 04 Feb 2014 21:10:00)
This is the one I use most for books.
Nice, but a little confusing.. (by steelspring on Wed, 05 Feb 2014 02:42:00)
Great app, reading a lot more on it now, I just wish it was easier to purchase more kindle books within the app. Is this not possible? If it is, it's extremely difficult to find that option. If it's not available within the app, why the heck not? :)
Great eBooks App Keeps Getting Better (by Justin Norman on Tue, 04 Feb 2014 15:39:00)
The clean and snappy interface makes this a great way to read books. I love the Collections feature, which makes it easier to organize my growing library. The only thing I wish is that they would sync to the Mac version of the app, which currently is quite inferior to this one. The iPhone app as it stands is absolutely great though.
Kindle (by musicman708 on Mon, 03 Feb 2014 22:19:00)
I love this app. I use if all of the time. I have only one complaint. On the kindle device, it will read your book to you. On the app, it doesn't read to you. Please add this feature.
Great app for reading (by Jayha on Mon, 03 Feb 2014 20:08:00)
Works great and love to read on the iPhone!
Unresponsive on my iPad mini (by bfb0810 on Mon, 03 Feb 2014 17:20:00)
I would give this a better rating but it is unresponsive or slow to respond on my mini. I have decided to go back to iBook.
confused and aggravated (by CaitlinAnne on Mon, 03 Feb 2014 16:19:00)
got the kindle app in order to read and view my college textbooks on my iPhone. however, I am unable to sync or download the texts. unsure if it is the app or publishers fault; regardless I am annoyed and upset about it.
Awesome (by Fantasticboy22 on Mon, 03 Feb 2014 13:07:00)
I use kindle across 3 devices, and it's awesome. I'm thrilled that iBook is pushing kindle to be more competitive. The kindle app is designed for readers and still beats iBook hands down. Although, honestly, the iPad is not good hardware for reading. Get a kindle for most of your reading and then, you use the iPhone/iPad app when reading books with pictures or your kindle isn't available. I always have my whole library of digital books with me wherever I go. Awesome
Love it, but.. (by JESSSx3 on Mon, 03 Feb 2014 03:31:00)
Love this app. Always reading but Since the last update, the last page read doesn't sync. So every time I put my iPad down I have to try and find my spot again when I come back to it. Having to remember page numbers or location numbers is difficult. Hope they can fix this.
Worthless (by Maxshiraz on Mon, 03 Feb 2014 01:19:00)
Pathetic. Offers a bunch of samples but nothing you can actually buy thru the app. I guess they want you to buy the kindle device.
Love the kindle app (by Wild boar333 on Sun, 02 Feb 2014 02:05:00)
Love the app but it seems that all the updates since ios7 came out have been downgrades, this last update made it to where I have no visible book mark so if I want to go back a few pages and re-read something then go back to my spot I have to search for it, the last downgrade took away the ability to go directly back to your bookmark from the table of contents, now it's getting ridiculous maybe it's time to go back to real books and stop with this hassle.
Almost perfect (by Joe the disappointed on Sat, 01 Feb 2014 20:17:00)
How about a choice of fonts on the iPad or droid for those of us who struggle to read, need a larger font, but want that font to be more clear?
Good app, great service (by Elizab3thTX on Sat, 01 Feb 2014 18:11:00)
My collections are not currently syncing, but the the app still works well otherwise. The tech support was great and responsive to my concerns.
Constant login required (by chrisdeely on Sat, 01 Feb 2014 02:20:00)
Am I the only one who has to CONSTANTLY re-enter my email and password to use this app?! If I switch to another app or put the ipad down for a few minutes, I have to re-enter my credentials again! This really overshadows an otherwise nice application.
Super app! (by Millquh on Sat, 01 Feb 2014 01:44:00)
Kindle offers so many books - anything type of novel you want. Their books are very inexpensive and even downright cheap, in any topic you wish to read. Kindle is my new best friend, on my IPad, kindle Fire, and I phone. If I' m at the doctor, having car repairs completed or waiting or waiting on one of my family or friends I always have a good read with me. I would be lost without Kindle!
Annoying (by CJAesq on Sat, 01 Feb 2014 01:37:00)
Love the app; hate the constant demand to turn on location services every time I start it up. Kindle, where I am has nothing to do with what I read. Might be time to find another reading app.
Needs more control (by Ignatius13 on Sat, 01 Feb 2014 00:38:00)
The fact that there's no option to scroll vertically, in a continuous page, makes transitioning between iBooks and the Kindle app difficult for those of us who have made the switch.
Highlight color problem?! (by mdwasim on Fri, 31 Jan 2014 19:48:00)
A strange issue showed up recently, in one of my book highlights are not opaque, highlighted text becomes almost invisible, only I got is highlight color.

I dont know what id do without my kindle or kindle app. It is awesome for when im on long trips or waiting for class to start. The app is perfect because im always on my phone
App has disappeared (by Syivdsolovdsfb on Thu, 30 Jan 2014 10:20:00)
Since competing the most recent update the app ( &all of my books) has disappeared. It is "open" & exists according to my apple account but the content has vanished from my phone entirely
love the app,kind of (by Minecraftplayer01 on Thu, 30 Jan 2014 03:23:00)
Love it, but won't start up on my iPhone 4. Tried restarting my phone, but it just crashes. Please help in anyway. Thanks
Highlights buggy (by Ariel817 on Thu, 30 Jan 2014 02:48:00)
Ever since the new update highlights seem buggy. I can do so many and then they start referring to the same location, even though they are clearly initiated in separate locations. Very frustrating! I uninstalled and reinstalled app, get the same broken performance.
Syncing issues (by Cidloves on Thu, 30 Jan 2014 00:16:00)
Can't sync my books with my kindle anymore. It doesn't sync the last page read. 😕
Newest update has more bugs... (by Kaycye on Wed, 29 Jan 2014 11:53:00)
I love my kindle app but the recent update doesn't allow for the black background. I believe the text is staying black also instead of changing to white. Please fix this ASAP as I like to read before bed & the black background is perfect (usually).
Update created bugs in app (by Nothing good on streaming site on Wed, 29 Jan 2014 04:02:00)
Last update makes the app run poorly
Can't load documents after latest update 4.1.1 (by e-BookReader on Tue, 28 Jan 2014 14:30:00)
After the latest update, I can no longer open .prc files on the iPad app. I am a Kindle book publisher and I proofread my books on my iPad. There are several ways to transfer files to the iPad and I have tried them all. In each case, when I long-press on the .prc file (typically located on my Google Drive, but the same is true with a .prc file attached to an email), I am presented with a choice of apps with which to open the .prc file. I select the Kindle app. The Kindle app promptly opens, but will not load the .prc ebook. I can follow the same procedure in opening PDF files in the Kindle app from my Google Drive with no problem. But cannot open a prc file as I was able to do in the past--prior to version 4.1.1. I contacted Kindle Support but got the typical run-around that we have all come to expect. Can anyone out there afford help of any kind in this regard?
Last update screwed up app... (by JamesF03 on Mon, 27 Jan 2014 20:57:00)
Since your last update, syncing issues have cropped up... Please fix soon!
Great books (by Catsrock3214 on Mon, 27 Jan 2014 19:20:00)
I love the kindle app. It has everything from books to magazines! The choices are kid friendly too.
Love it (by Micro girl on Mon, 27 Jan 2014 05:19:00)
I LOVE this app. I wouldn't be able to read books without this app. I can read anywhere as long as I have my phone.
Needs a fix (by 8675304 on Mon, 27 Jan 2014 03:45:00)
I use this app for school and text books. In the past it has been wonderful. However, suddenly now when using highlighting the text becomes faded and almost unreadable. Please fix this!
Must have! (by Crossfitmom on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 22:51:00)
Great app. I love reading on my ipad with the Kindle app. Easy to use with nice features like size of font, color of pages and bookmarks. Highly recommend.
A Great Alternative (by West Cassenti on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 22:46:00)
I've always enjoyed the feel and act of turning a page in a book. Advancing through the pages to the middle of the story and the anticipation with each page nearing the end and knowing/feeling the outcome. Though, a digital book lacks these physical qualities, I was delighted that the anticipation never faded regardless of the medium. I thoroughly enjoy having a digital library I can take anywhere with me and searching endless numbers of books in one central place with kindle! It's amazing!
Syncing a problem since last update (by babynurse007 on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 20:42:00)
I have two kindles, an iPod and iPhone . I tend to read most books on my iPod because it is lighter and easier to stick in a pocket. I read about 3 books a week. Syncing between the iPhone and iPod has stopped working since the next to last update. And the last update didn't fix the problem. I also have close to 300 books on my Sony Reader, and reading on my iPod with their app is much easier in two ways...the syncing is GREAT, and there is no annoying highlighting going on whenever a finger gets close to the screen. There is no way to turn off this feature on the Kindle app, which would solve it easily for those of us that read for pleasure and do not need notes. the Kindle app does have one feature that Sony needs, and that is the alphabet on the side of the book list. I have 850+ Kindle books, and it makes it much easier to find my titles on the Kindle. I hope the powers that be will fix these issues soon! Update: syncing now working for me, but very slow to load since last update, any idea why?
Kindle (by Stargirl22⭐️😄 on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 20:41:00)
The only thing is that you have to buy the book that you want first and if you don't you can only read like 3 chapters. Kinda disappointed.😞

Not a page turner (by Cheloubitz on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 14:04:00)
The new update has caused the pages to turn in a slow, jerky way that interferes with reading.
Does not sync (by Krysie A. on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 11:44:00)
For some time now a new purchase will not sync on my iPad. Pretty frustrating especially knowing that it syncs fine on my iPhone. Also where did the bookmark option when searching go? I can't find my bookmarks after I make them anymore.
Kindle (by DiamondDF on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 10:41:00)
Kindle is better than great. I have an older kindle reading device, and I have my Kindle technology installed in my IPad and Laptop. It is user friendly and handy. I would recommend The Kindle App to all. Searching for books is easy by content, subject or title. Lots of rare books can be found in the kindle format.
Great app (by Splitz56789 on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 08:56:00)
But I wish there was a way to have the information on the book. I have over a hundred books on my kindle and some of the books are years old. When I'm looking for a book it's difficult to remember which one it is. Sometimes I get lucky and remember what the cover was but more than not I can't find it. So please fix that anyway you can.
Confused (by Vanilla•Isa on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 04:56:00)
Why is it say sample? And I can't read the whole books :( someone tell me why plz
"Book loan has ended" prevents deleting book (by Acumagnet on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 02:12:00)
I borrowed a book, now want to remove but can't. I have to look at the cover of a book I don't need on my Kindle. This is very frustrating. Also, end your feud with Paypal. This is getting ridiculous. You are only hurting your own business because you can't figure out a better payment system yet. Thank you

Needs oxford dictionary support (by solumyr on Sat, 25 Jan 2014 20:52:00)

Useful app, needs to support speed reading (by Former Boxer Fan on Sat, 25 Jan 2014 10:50:00)
This is a thoughtfully designed app. I mostly use it to read technical and professional books. I would use it more for pleasure-reading if it offered a speed reading mode.

Great app (by PiperBlue on Fri, 24 Jan 2014 15:39:00)
This is a wonderful app, it would be even better if there was a speech function!
Could be improved a lot (by Nikhiljayaram on Fri, 24 Jan 2014 09:07:00)
No way to remove expired library books from the app. No page number. Many bugs in highlighting lines. No provision for hand written notes. There is potential to improve this app a lot.
Works for me (by Kelhamdrix on Fri, 24 Jan 2014 04:07:00)
Yup. Still learning my reading speed. Otherwise, great app.

Combining super fast downloads and equally fast page turns this is the reader to have.
Thanks for quick fix (by Ilovebooks&pandas on Thu, 23 Jan 2014 11:56:00)
Best app for books along with iBooks, but this has more books and cheaper. Last upgrade scared me. I thought Jeff B might not care, but someone did. Thanks for quick fix. PS Hey, dummies. I kept losing my message as I tried to find a nickname that was not taken!
Great (by Hello. I'm Anonymous. on Thu, 23 Jan 2014 03:18:00)
It's a great app, and it's easy to use. One thing could really make it better, though. I really want to be able to download books directly from my iPod and the app does not allow that. Add that feature and this app will be perfect!!!!!
Upgrading my one star to a five (by TheBreezRG on Thu, 23 Jan 2014 02:00:00)
Almost unusable upgrade has been fixed. No excuse for the untested old one. Programmers should be fired and replaced with software engineers who test their work before dumping it on us. Now works. Improved features. What a relief. Pleased now, a month after the fact.
Small tweaks (by Eric Pedersen on Thu, 23 Jan 2014 00:35:00)
Great app! I really like the new design for iOS 7. One small change I would like to see is a consistent font size for collection names. Right now, collections with longer names have smaller fonts than those with shorter names. A consistent font size regardless of name length would give it a more polished look. Keep up the good work!
Alternative (by Mobilken on Wed, 22 Jan 2014 23:23:00)
For books i can not find on iBooks this is a good alternative. Some difficulty downloading from some vendors.
Actual Page Numbers Are Essential--A Must!!! (by Kellyokeith on Wed, 22 Jan 2014 20:21:00)
I am unable to view actual page numbers for my required readings in class through my textbooks. Because of this, citing sources is extremely difficult. Google books displays page numbers, why can't kindle? The aforementioned issue must be fixed! I will change my rating on here after the change is made.
Once again...it is the BEST reading app on iPad (by devinejem on Wed, 22 Jan 2014 14:01:00)
UPDATE (1/21/2014): The latest update addressed all of the issues that happened with an earlier update this month. Everything is back to being easy and smooth with this app. Being able to put a book into multiple collections at the same time and see which collections you have it in is a nice feature. The best reading app around. With collections to sort my books, I'm able to easily find and keep track of my books and documents. Now if they would just integrate the buying feature instead of having to use a separate app it would be heaven.
Release 4.1.1 (by Futures2008 on Wed, 22 Jan 2014 10:45:00)
Release 4.1.1 Seems to have fixed the ghastly problems of release 4.1. I'm pleased to be able to revise my earlier review from 1 star to 5 stars. Release 4.1 --- New release makes this app unusably sloooooow. What a pity - I actually preferred reading books on my iPad to my Kendle Paperwhite.
What the hell?! (by Ichi x on Wed, 22 Jan 2014 08:48:00)
How in the hell does one get a book on this thing?! It's so simple on droid. How do you get books from the store?? There's no tab in the app!!
Trapped!! (by Tearoy on Wed, 22 Jan 2014 04:32:00)
I escaped the ios7 but I updated my kindle for glitches and I can't do anything! The pages are frozen, books are missing, I can't even download in app samples! Without iOS7 I can't use it but I missed the window and can't get iOS 7. Bad compatibility is all I will say.
A dream come true!! (by Tinka1278 on Wed, 22 Jan 2014 03:24:00)
For a geek like me...I LOVE TO READ. I used to get picked on as a child because I'd rather curl up to a good book!! Kindle provides just that. At 1st I was pretty skeptical about the whole "e-book" thing but I am comfortable. Great app
Love it! Love it on an e-ink kindle more though. (by Ravenous1 on Wed, 22 Jan 2014 01:45:00)
Want to read some stuff? Do it here!
TOO basic! Can't copy & paste or buy books thru this app (by Brent Cunningham on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 22:22:00)
So frustrating! Biggest complaint is that I cannot "copy and paste" quotes from Kindle books that I've purchased, when iBooks allows me to (so it can be done). Also, it's a hassle to not be able to purchase books directly through this app on my iPad--creates more steps than are necessary.
This book is great (by Terminator2026 on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 22:05:00)
This book is great! You get to read your favorite books
Can't remove expired library books (by Nikhiljayaram on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 17:34:00)
No way to remove expired library books from the app? It was automatically removed from the cloud library when the loan expired, but it still shows up on the device and no way to delete it. A google search suggests that there are many other people facing this same issue out there!
Bug report (by MEStudent188 on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 13:30:00)
Still not fixed : Chapter left time and book left time display the same time, the book left time. I enjoy this feature on my kindle and would like to see it work correctly in the app now that it has been added. Thanks
Works Now! (by Hulahoop1 on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 13:26:00)
Ver. 4.1.1 addresses the stability issues of Ver. 4.1 and now works great! Thank you very much!
Yay!!! (by staceytinva on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 11:47:00)
Thank you! App now opens and I have my books and samples back!!!
Thank you for the fix!! (by J2lm on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 11:34:00)
Thank you for getting the fix to 4.1 out quickly! Looks like we're back to normal here...
Help! (by KTlov95 on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 04:57:00)
Just downloaded it and it will not open. Completely frustrating! All i want to do is read!!!
The App update is stuck! (by Redskinsfan35 on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 01:45:00)
I received a notice that app has an update. When I tap the button to update it freezes. Please fix this problem. Thank you. As soon as you do I can submit a different rating; however, not being able to launch the app is a BIG problem.
I love my Kindle app. Here's how to improve (by Lady in the Lake2 on Mon, 20 Jan 2014 23:22:00)
I understand these will not be quick to implement, but please consider for the future: 1. Add more highlight colors. Please. I always take notes in books with use a pencil and symbols. I never use a highlighter. I'd love something similar. Currently, there are 4 colors (2 are hard on the eyes in some lights) but this is not enough for textbooks usages. I'd like many more colors for various purposes, as the loss of tactile markers in physical books requires more search options Various colors would help teachers and students easily set up their own system to find, organize and categorize: (Colors chosen arbitrarily) Blue: might be on the next test Hot Pink: crucial point. Memorize this. Yellow: teacher/I disagrees Purple: I like this Green: good for essay topic. Orange: bad for essay topic Light pink: interesting but not on test Gray: up for debate. Indigo: topic for future research. 2. Allow us to link unconnected highlights. This is why I use a pencil to "highlight" instead of a traditional highlighter. By circling and connecting a series bare-bones phrases out of a full paragraph, I am able to increase retention as it forces me to understand what I am highlighting. Fewer words makes later studying less tedious and reduces studying time. (For example, in the paragraph above I'd use a pencil to circle and connect: "allow...a pencil to...circle and connect...phrases...to increase retention...it forces me to understand...and reduces studying time." You might be able to do this by letting users highlight words, then highlight the whole paragraph(s) and select a new option called "connect highlight". Ideally this would then do something like discretely bold the highlighted words (or fade the unhighlighted words) and when looking at our notes see what we highlighted as a sentence like what I wrote above. 3. Allow multiple color tags for different types of notes. 4. Allow us to disable the dictionary. It slows down highlights. All in all, though, keep up the good work!
Great App (by Loba12 on Mon, 20 Jan 2014 23:21:00)
I enjoy this app immensely. I can access my library wherever I travel. Also, pick up at ant point in the story between devices.
Thanks for the Fix (by LMY502 on Mon, 20 Jan 2014 22:58:00)
The fix works thank you. I knew you would take care of it. Updated the old version and now the app won't open on my iPad Generation 3. It worked very well before the update now I open the app the word Kindle loads and then it shuts off and returns to the home screen. Please help ASAP! Thanks.
Help! Won't Open! (by Tarap@exitrealty on Mon, 20 Jan 2014 07:54:00)
I downloaded the app and it won't open. So frustrating when you purchased a book and can't read it. If it wasn't 2am I'd just run and buy the book.
Can't open Kindle reader AT ALL! (by MizzSugar on Mon, 20 Jan 2014 03:59:00)
Prior to this "update," I never had a problem with Kindle app, now however, the app is stuck in a darkened waiting mode and I can't even open a book. NOT HAPPY.
Awesome (by appyKidz on Mon, 20 Jan 2014 03:16:00)
just wish you could buy in app
Great App (by MS Mom 5 on Mon, 20 Jan 2014 00:13:00)
This app allows me to travel with fewer devices. My Kindle stays beside my bed while I am away. When I return it's sync feature allows me to catch right up where I have been reading.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 801th to 850th
Font issue (by W3Margaret on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 21:35:00)
cannot get the font size to change to larger, tough to read without this feature working. So far like, iBooks better.
Top Shelf! (by Etcmscott on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 20:39:00)
This is my all time favorite app! Truly a top shelf selection.
Great Way To Increase Productivity (by DaveEastman on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 15:59:00)
The ability to have all my books in this small electrical device is priceless. The highlight feature is easy to use, as is page tagging. I can reverse the screen to be dark so at night my body isn't jolted awake by bright lights. Anyone wanting to be more productive should invest in a tablet immediately! Kindle is the best reader I have seen.
Last update (by Kenneth Martin on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 15:07:00)
Finally works again after the previous update.
Great User Friendly App (by Mitrana on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 12:57:00)
I love the convenience of having the kindle app at my fingertips. It's simple, very easy to use, and I've never experienced any problems. It might be nice to be able to make purchases from this app eventually, but not a big deal to me.
Works Great (by CateBlank on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 11:17:00)
No problems. I like this better than my Kindle--more convenient, easier to use. Updates have all been improvements.
Best app for reading. (by j on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 07:18:00)
It was best apps for reading.
Best reading app hands down (by Ao-117 on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 06:00:00)
Easy to use and powerful
One of my favorite apps (by Didaktos on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 02:53:00)
Love to read! Have a few hundred (maybe thousand?) books loaded onto my phone & ready to read at a moment's notice, depending upon what I'm in the mood for. Usually get thru 1 or 2 books a day just in “wasted” time that before was taken up standing in line, waiting for others, car stopped at red lights, etc. Before installing this app, I had books everywhere: vehicles, home, work, etc. I still have those, but they're in my home office & I don't lug them around. I do have other reading apps, but this one has been the best one I've used.
It finally works again (by Kindle4.1Hater on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 23:58:00)
4.1.1 works. Thank god. The folly of ver 4.1 should never have happened.
Book lover (by Love 3 on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 23:25:00)
I love the Kindle app and selections.
Love Kindle! (by MindyHR on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 20:16:00)
I really love to read and never thought I would be able to give up the feel of a good book in my hands but I sure did. Thank you Kindle for such an awesome reading experience!
Great App (by MasySyma on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 18:43:00)
Thank you for listening.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! (by redrose92087 on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 17:26:00)
I was so relieved yesterday to see another update & when I downloaded it, it works!! I can actually open the app and all of my books, samples and PDFs are still there!! So relieved!
Love the Kindle App! (by MyShell5 on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 22:20:00)
I have it on all my devices. So where ever I go I always have my books to read!
Kindle on IPAD (by Gahsr on Sun, 19 Jan 2014 12:55:00)
I have been reading Kindle on my IPAD for about three years now and love it. I find this the best and easiest to use. I have used many Ebook formats over the years and still use Kindle the majority of the time. Please keep up the good work and I enjoy supporting the efforts of the many new authors available from the Kindle book shelf Gah1/14
THE Best E-Book App (by thejoshed on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 15:21:00)
IMHO, this us this single most useful, awesome reading app on the market. I cannot stress how much I love Kindle!
Thank you for fixing update 4.1 (by rhondaal on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 15:10:00)
The Kindle app is back to it's former glory!! I love this app and it's one of my most used so I was very disappointed when update v4.1 made it sluggish and slow. I'm so glad they fixed it. Version 4.1.1 rocks!
Could be better (by Mrs Darcee on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 13:23:00)
Why can't you buy books directly from this app? Why does it sync automatically when the app is opened? There should be an option to sync. Other than this, love kindle !
Sync @ startup annoying (by Tmr71 on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 13:04:00)
I think this is one of the better reading apps out there for iPod Touch. So cool to have all these books in my pocket! User control of sync settings would be nice. It's annoying to return to a read and have to wait for the app to sync or (if you're away from Wi-fi) the message that sync failed. Sometimes less would be better.
New update fixes the previous 4.1 issues. (by RSSreader on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 09:58:00)
Issues resolved , loads much faster. Update is very , very slow , also deleted existing location on book , sync fails most of the time. click a selection , nothing happens for a long time.
Portable reading (by shr hawkeyes on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 09:20:00)
I love the Kindle app. I can read my books and magazines anywhere. I always know where I left my book. :-) Very easy for traveling.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this App! (by SUV Girl on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 09:04:00)
The Kindle App is well-designed and very easy to navigate.
Thanks (by PathMax on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 08:17:00)
Thanks. Difficulty getting books to iPad, says too many devices registered. I don't even have those devices. I wish I could unregistered other devices from the app. Thank you.
Great reading app, but... (by Robersonj on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 05:34:00)
Is a copy and paste feature too much to ask? Because the Facebook sharing feature is horrible. To quote things I need to basically type it all out myself. Other than that the actual app is nice. Much better than iBooks or Nook.
Thanks for the update! (by JudGud on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 02:47:00)
Thank you for the last update, the app is running smoothly now! Yay, I can enjoy my e-books again!
Awesome (by Princesstee1022 on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 01:34:00)
Since the update kindle works way better I have plenty books and it find them quickly thanks for the update!!!!!!!!
Love it (by Tootoot on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 01:34:00)
Works just as well as my kindle.
Updated (by jb1169 on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 01:10:00)
Thank you for addressing the stability issue! The app is running much better,smoother!
Awesome (by Ksmjga on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 01:08:00)
Now can read everywhere.
Performance back to normal (by Marcos Carreira on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 23:34:00)
Previous performance problems (version 4.1) solved
Justification (by Longnamedatttshopefullynottaken on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 23:06:00)
Why is there no option for anything except full justification. On larger. text settings this leaves huge ugly gaps that are distracting. Makes the iBooks app so much more appealing. This one thing makes the app almost unusable. See?
Love my Kindle (by Gramy1 on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 20:39:00)
A great way to have many books handy to read. I take it with me everywhere. I even loaded the app on my IPad. My husband used it while he was having chemo last year before he died. I am so glad I have it.
Update not working - please fix!!!! (by sjfisher214 on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 20:09:00)
Downloaded update now I can't open the app, nor read my books. Please fix this! Way too many updates that aren't an improvement! Thanks so much for fixing this...can now open and read my books.
Thank Goodness for 4.1.1 (by SMcQuitty on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 20:06:00)
The 4.1 update that automatically showed up last week, literally crippled my ability to read on the Kindle App. Fortunately, 4.1.1 seems to have completely fixed the startup, lag-time, freezing, and crashing issues. Thank goodness!
Much better (by Jinksed on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 20:03:00)
Unfortunately, it won't save bookmarks.
58 dollars on a college that won't sync (by LogiccK on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 19:38:00)
New update still didn't fix the text book look I'm not buying a kindle I'm going to get a refund on this book.
Working good again (by Crochetowl on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 17:56:00)
The 4.1.1 patch fixed the sluggishness issue. Searches also work well. Preferred the previous dictionary display.
Love it!!! (by Malgorzata Sabat on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 16:55:00)
The only way to read my books. It's so simple to maneuver around. Easy to keep track of my books.
I don't know what they just did... (by Vicki Hertzberg on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 23:45:00)
But I updated my app yesterday. It worked fine before the update. Afterwards it would self abort. After doing this five times, I deleted and reinstalled. Which means I have to also upload all of my ebooks. Again. Which is daunting since there are thousands of them. Now it is slow to recognize my touch - I have to tap many times to get it to download a book. It is slow to download. It self aborts constantly. Touch and drag is slow. I thought I would just read a book but touch and drag isn't working any better inside a book, and it is also self-aborting. Come on people, fix this NOW!!!
Kindle app rocks!! (by Skua545454 on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 19:00:00)
I have read literally hundreds of books on the Kindle app on my phone and iPad, for when I can't have my actual Kindle with me. Love it!!!
Kindle app (by Photocrazied on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 18:34:00)
I have never had problems with Kindle until this new update. I can't download my books or even read a book. It keeps crashing on me!!
I'm confused 😩 (by _Foreignroses_ on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 16:32:00)
How do you buy new books? It's only letting me download the samples
January 17, 2014 version fix... (by Busy mom & writer on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 15:53:00)
Figures, right after the below review, a new update became available. Back to reading my book - yeah!!! Otherwise, not enough experience with version to say anything else... Update, 01/17/14 - uninstalled & reinstalled app at least 4 times! Will not let me download all my books (over 1600 of them). Left my iPad on all night last night trying to get all my books downloaded. Instead, app continues to crash, so I uninstalled & reinstalled this morning. While trying again to get all my books, app crashes & now I appear to have to start all over again!!!! So beyond frustrated! I was trying to read a book & the app just closed & I can't get back!!!!!!!!!!! Fix this app ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Uploaded to latest version of app (January 2014) & now it won't run at all!!!!! Decided to delete & reload... Worked BUT now I don't have any books downloaded on my iPad!!!! Can you make it so you just click one button to get all your books downloaded? I have over 2,000 books & it takes hours to get them on my iPad again. Thanks! Hope the delete app & reinstall helps others, too!
Thank you! (by KH786 on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 15:47:00)
Thank you for the update to the "new" update. My kindle app is working smoothly now. No more locking up and options are opening quickly now! Thank you very much for fixing it!
Awesome update fixes (by oreogod on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 14:52:00)
Awesome 4.1 update is now super fast with the 4.1.1 release. Took care of long loads, long library searches. Before where the app would freeze up for a bit since the 4.1 update has been fixed.
Kindle on iPad (by Jomama1152 on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 12:24:00)
I love this app! It works great for everything I do!
Terrible update! (by frister1 on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 11:34:00)
Latest update is terrible. Very slow to load band open books. Slow to open, trying to add to collections is slow, tedious. Filter selection in collections hangs up...letter...by letter! I want old version back!!
Slow (by bmatson on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 09:57:00)
Everything works....but recently the app has become very slow. When search, for example, you have to wait 15 to 20 seconds between typing letters. Also much slower loading collections and simply scrolling the library.
Rotten upgrade - unacceptably slow (by TheBreezRG on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 09:04:00)
Wish I could reinstall the old version. Almost unusable. Programmers should be fired and replaced with software engineers who tested their work before dumping it on us.

4.1 is shi-ttay (by Komsedrol on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 06:01:00)
Soooooooooooo sloooooooooooooowwwwwwwww now. Ugh.
V4.1 is awful (by John.Galt on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 04:34:00)
It is slow, crashes regularly, and I haven't been able to read a book since you released it. I've bought a lot of Kindle books which I can no longer read because you've screwed this app up.
Keep track of books purchased! (by Jennifer Schneider on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 03:36:00)
Great selection, but 4 weeks down the road the app is suggesting I buy a book I already have purchased and read.
Love the app! May I suggest,... (by navebro78 on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 02:44:00)
I use this as much as I can and I enjoy it, but I am a constant muitltasker, and I realize that you don't support that feature yet. Any plans on an update so people like me can listen to articles, books, and everything else in background mode? I'd definately give it 5 stars if you ever plan on a future update to make that possible!
Awesome App! (by scmorris on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 02:28:00)
I love it. :) I can read my books anywhere at anytime!
Love me some Kindle (by Bingobuff on Fri, 17 Jan 2014 02:07:00)
I have Kindle app on my IPhone & 2 other devices. I've had it for approx 6 months & have read well over 400 books! Love this! Keep up good work!
Books! books! Books! (by Melray08 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 23:15:00)
I have nothing bad to say about this app I love it. I literally use it everyday almost all day.
When is this App going to be fixed? (by Arf1951 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 23:03:00)
App immediately crashes when invoked. Works for a while if reloaded onto my iPad Air (or my iPad mini retina) but then you must download all of your previous media.
Works fine, and every book i need is here. (by vmjfk on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 22:55:00)
And thats what i like.
Love my Kindle app! (by Curleq302 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 22:28:00)
I have never had any issues using my kindle app. Even after the update I have still not had an issue. It picks up right where I left off on my other devices. I actually read more on my iPad and iPhone now than I do on my kindle. It is my favorite app
Broken after update (by Shelley Kauffmann on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 21:38:00)
App is now slow and frequently fails to respond at all. Very frustrating to tolerate, given the ridiculous amount of money I've invested in my Kindle collection over the last few years. :-/
Bad Update (by Wyatt Clifford/Elissa Hansen on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 19:34:00)
The reading speed function doesn't work. It says "Learning reading speed," all the time. Apparently, the app has learning disabilities.
What happened??? (by Queenie63 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 19:12:00)
New update has rendered the app completely unusable !
Slow, slow, slow (by Karensueo on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 18:13:00)
The title of the review says it all. I wish I hadn't installed the latest update.
Love it (by tntcty on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 16:51:00)
The newest update works fine for me. I love how it tells you how much time you have left in your book at the bottom of the page along with the location/percentage of where you are.
bookmarks broken (by Db93why on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 15:06:00)
Latest version broke the bookmark!
Love it! (by Aeh85 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 14:33:00)
I love this app! I am addicted to my kindle and now I never have to be without it! I've never had any problem with any of the updated versions. This app is great!
Almost perfect (by Lorriann7 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 13:45:00)
I love this app in that I can read in the dark and without reading glasses. Two features I would love to see added are 1) a countdown of how many pages are left in each chapter and 2) a text to voice option.
Loved it until the update! (by Nicigil on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 13:43:00)
I see this app EVERYDAY! Now with the update, I can't even open it! Please fix, then I'll rate 5 stars.
No Problems (by BoogerSuger83 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 13:03:00)
As title suggest. Works great on ipad mini w/retina
Latest version screwed the app (by Towers1209 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 12:47:00)
Previous version is better. * when two consecutive highlighting is done, the previous one disappears. * when you go to a new location and then close the iPad lid, Kindle opens up on the new previous location. --- there might be other bugs introduced into the app, but what I listed above are the two that are the most annoying and most obvious, so far. --- I will update this list as I discover new problems.
Bad update (by Sun55060 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 11:27:00)
I love this app but with this last update 4.1 it won't open. I love reading and can't on here. I have had to find other apps. Very disappointing. I hope the issue is addressed soon!
Not that bad (by bOOklOver2984 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 10:35:00)
I haven't had to many problems so far...an occasional stall in turning the page or it kicking me out but nothing major, hope the kinks get worked out soon!!!
H E L P (by Bmpr543 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 10:33:00)
Just like so many other people my kindle now crashes and I can't access my books from my iPad. Up until the last update this month everything was working fine. Now I can't even open kindle. I sign in and it shuts down. The last update was like poison to my Kindle app.
Update needs an UPDATE (by So4pink on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 09:39:00)
Please fix this problem!! After updating, now it constantly crashes. This app is totally unusable
Too Slow (by Aknitterinqueens on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 08:21:00)
This app runs too slow. It freezes up, when scrolling through my books and turning pages. Then it miraculously unfreezes 10 to 15 seconds later. It is so frustrating. I have to keep tapping the page to make it move. I loved this app before, now I hate it. Please fix this problem.
App works fine for me (by Kt3172415 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 07:55:00)
I only wish there was an easy way to buy books, like there is on real kindles
Great app (by Gunslinger77777 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 07:27:00)
Have been through the upgrades an I think it keeps getting better. The sync between devices seem to work 99% if the time only a couple if glitches. Love being able to look up new places or things I'm not sure about on google. Used to have to cut and paste into browser so love this option.
Very Frustrated!!!! (by Germanengineerette on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 06:35:00)
Latest update is very slow, won't load books, closes the app, UUUGGG!!! Please fix!!!!
Love it (by Tauna Hopkins on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 05:53:00)
This is my favorite reading app, and probably one of the most used apps on my phone.

I waited so long to have the collections option on the app and I LOVE being able to see if a book is in more than one collection. LOVE that the app now has the estimated time to finish a chapter or the book in the bottom left corner!!!! LOVE reading on my kindle and kindle app!!!!
Reading Speed!!! (by Jacob Smith on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 02:35:00)
Please fix Reading speed feature!! I love it on my kindle and wish it worked on here. Otherwise no issues! Thanks.
Books are blank (by Chubasco on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 02:12:00)
Not much reading possible when all the pages are blank...
Lovin it! (by Annie4196543 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 02:09:00)
I love love love this. Never ever have a problem with it.
Very disappointed with upgrade (by Kaimommy-khy on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 02:03:00)
This new version won't allow me to get a sample of the books which is not good please fix this
Really?!! (by Antoniag2000 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 01:27:00)
So my Kindle worked until I updated it! Now it goes to the load screen and then shuts off! I loved my Kindle until this update! Rated 1 until it's fixed!
Updates (by LWexton on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 00:41:00)
I don't like the new updates. It makes the pop up bubbles bigger but you get less of the definition in it. There is more dead space to the bubble than actual words, especially for use on the phone. Also, it would be nice to be able to select and translate foreign languages; mainly for dialog.
Kindle (by Armomof4 on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 00:40:00)
I have no desire to use any other book app besides Kindle. I started with Nook and loved being able to read books electronically, then I downloaded Kindle. In my opinion there is no comparison in the time it takes to buy and download a book. Hands down Kindle is the fastest and easiest to use. LOVE my Kindle!! :)
Awesome. (by LadyWesson on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 00:18:00)
There are a few apps that I really like, and that I am very happy to have on my iPhone and/or iPad. However, there are some classics that I use every single day. The Kindle app is one of those. I actually don't know how I ever lived without it..! 😊 I do still own actual books; I have quite the collection on my shelves. But to be able to "carry" a book in every genre I'm interested in with me, never ceases to excite me. I love the different features, such as picking a different font and/or background, and I love the highlighting tool and use it a lot. Kindle never did NOT work for me. Never crashed, never hung up...nothing. I really only have the best things to say about this app classic...
Reading is FUN (by Annskis on Thu, 16 Jan 2014 00:06:00)
Cannot live without Kindle on my phone!
Please fix!!! (by redrose92087 on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 20:40:00)
Since the update the app won't open and it seems I'm not the only one with this problem. Some people have had success uninstalling/reinstalling the app but I have a many samples of books I would lose (50+) and at least a dozen PDFs and documents with bookmarks I would lose as well so reinstalling is not a good option for me...please tell me you're coming out with an update that will fix this soon!!!!!
Love this app (by Ohsobroke on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 20:34:00)
So convenient to have lots of books virtually at my fingertips!
Stupid! (by MinecraftMania on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 20:30:00)
This app only lets me get samples of books! I want full books please!!!! If anyone can fix this plz let me know... Until then, 1 star.
Crashing all the time - Still (by Stommieblu on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 20:13:00)
IT'S STILL CRASHING!!!! Fix this! 1/15/14 so I did the last update and the app won't load. Seriously, do you bother to test these things before you release an update? So please fix this. Thanks.
Crashes! Do Not Update!! (by Hulahoop1 on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 19:26:00)
The latest Kindle application update for the iPad is a total failure, causing it to crash every time I open the application. Following the procedure suggested by Kindle Support, I have deregistered, deleted, redownloaded, and reinstalled the app on my iPad Air 4 times now. Doing this required that I redownload my entire library. Halfway through this process, the app continued to crash. With over a 1,000 books in my library, this is completely unacceptable. I was able to restore the Kindle app back to version 3.9.2 and am able to download a small number of books to my device, but it does not work as well as it did before. Please fix the Kindle for iPad application as soon as possible.
Love it! (by TPooky on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 19:07:00)
I must have gotten lucky because I have not had any issues with my Kindle app. I use it daily.
Bad update.. (by RAYSP. on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 18:26:00)
App was great till latest update. Now slow or unresponsive. Please fix this.
Fix It!!! (by isteve1960 on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 17:49:00)
Can't open it since the update. Hurry up and fix it.
My Most Used App (by Non cooking Nana on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 17:37:00)
My iPad is put to daily use for all sorts of business and pleasurable activities. However, using the Kindle App for reading novels is by far my favorite for leisure time. It is SUPER!
Update won't open (by Kim T of Maine on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 16:34:00)
I love the kindle app but after installing the update the app will not open. Very frustrating as I use the app to access my textbooks. Hope this is addressed ASAP.

It's ok (by Smac89 on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 15:46:00)
I have a kindle fire.. So I downloaded kindle to my iPhone not what I expected. Why can we not purchase books in the app? I have to go on the internet to get any books
Kindle (by brown641 on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 13:45:00)
I really like this app.
Kindle for ipad (by mickyshell on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 12:56:00)
I'm so mad I've have work things on here as well as numerous books and since the update it doesn't work at all !!!!!! Fix it now
Horrible update (by Camyo7 on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 11:15:00)
Library takes forever to load! Pages turn slowly. Please fix this ASAP!!! New features not worth this inconvenience...
FIX IT (by P. Le on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 09:31:00)
Current version of kindle app is HORRIBLE!!! It freezes, won't download books when you touch the screen and VERY SLOW when it even works! UGH!!! I hate it. I had to uninstall, re-install and then TRY to re-download ALL my books. This is ridiculous! PLEASE FIX NOW.
Re-downloading (by Patrick Chung on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 07:30:00)
I am glad that I am not the only one with this problem. I updated it about a week ago. That's when the app started to get really laggy. It takes at least 10 seconds for a page to turn, and it really frustrated me. So I deleted the app, and currently re downloading it. Hopefully it'll be better.
Was GREAT, now HORRIBLE!!! PLEASE FIX!!! (by VeryRareReviewer on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 05:41:00)
This WAS a great app. I was so excited when the update came out allowing you to make collections like you can on the actual kindle, however... The latest update has RUINED this app for me! It is horribly slow, continues to crash repeatedly and gets a frozen screen EVERY time I try to view my collections! Then it will suddenly unfreeze and open random books! PLEASE PLEASE fix this app ASAP!
Beyond annoying (by Prwitchblade on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 05:14:00)
Why in the heck you offer a freaking upgrade if the app will not open or as soon as open it crashed. I am super annoying, can't finish my book. UGHHHHHH! Fix it and quick.
Love it (by eks1 on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 04:09:00)
Love being able to carry multiple books at one time without having to carry a backpack. Also how it saves your notes and bookmarks across devices.
Love it! (by Pam phinney on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 03:41:00)
I use this app constantly , and couldn't be happier. Keep up the good work!
Kindle 4.1 (by newtwist on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 03:33:00)
I just downloaded the new app. I did not have the experience that the other people had. I have the 3rd generation iPad & the iPhone 4. It works perfectly for me. In fact, I like this new kindle app better than the previous one. I almost didn't download it because of the other reviews, but I remembered it downloaded automatically on my iPhone. I feel bad for the others who've had a terrible experience. Thank you for your reviews, but trust me, it works perfectly!!!
So Disappointed! (by LilMrsLily on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 02:47:00)
It has been several days since the last update (Jan 6th) and still no resolution! CAN'T ACCESS MY BOOKS! App won't open at all! PLEASE fix it already! Truly upset & so disappointed! 😡
Cant get device registered. (by Dattdudebadd1 on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 02:39:00)
Basically a waste of time.
Keeps Crashing (by Pyjamazen on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 02:37:00)
I don't know how they managed to introduce so many problems in one new version. It's crashing repeatedly, it won't let me download and read new books - I can read a page, then it crashes AND I have to download the book again. Repeat uselessly. It also won't save my location in a book now. Every time the app closes for any reason - crashing, flipping between apps, timing out - it takes me back to page one. On top of that, it's incredibly slow when switching books or between author vs titles vs recent listing for books. It's almost impossible to read anything! DON'T DOWNLOAD THIS UPDATE!!!
NEEDS WORK!!!!!!! (by Christian App Girl on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 02:37:00)
Up until a day or so ago, kindle was my favorite app. however, this new update, isn't working. It's slow, takes forever to open or download a book. Plus I have to re download books, right after I've just downloaded the book. MAJOR GLITCH!!!!!!! It was better before this last update.
Positively in love with this version (by shawnie-tay on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 02:02:00)
I've been using kindle app for all of my devices for the past 5years, and I must say this version is my fav. Everything syncs smoothly, the cloud is great, and this time frame that is given until you finish the book, is just a simple bonus.
Love my Kindle App! (by Emdiruzza on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 01:49:00)
The kindle app is easy to use and very convenient. Whenever I forget my kindle, I can just go on my phone and continue right where I left off! I love my kindle app.
NOT happy (by Wondernana on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 01:35:00)
Everything was working great until this last update. NOW it's super slow to open and super slow to open a book or do anything else! VERY frustrating!
Awful (by Mtm9138 on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 00:46:00)
It doesn't sync with my kindle! Barely opens at all. Crashing often. Please fix!
Does not sync (by Krysie A. on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 00:24:00)
For some time now a new purchase will not sync on my iPad. Pretty frustrating especially knowing that it syncs fine on my iPhone.
New update needs another update! (by KH786 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 23:59:00)
My Kindle app is really sloooooowwwwww! It takes forever for any option to open or close. Rearranging books in the collections locks up on me and I can't do that now. I will be waiting on the update to fix this but if you have not updated yet, I would suggest you wait. As someone else stated, I would love to see the scroll option added. iBooks already has that option.
Great e-reader app (by Joshhh008 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 23:30:00)
I have nothing negative to say. Love this app.
Great App! (by Kristen Zumwalt on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 23:23:00)
I have been using this app along with my actual Kindle. I am beginning to prefer this app to the Kindle. Like the other reviewer, I wish there was a way to distinguish between read and unread books.
My Favorite App (by Candy129 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 22:49:00)
Excellent App- I use this twice as much as my iBooks
Really??? (by Girl who can't read on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 22:39:00)
Why must we have drama with every update ?Why is there no download all button for those of us who have to reload our books? When will they get this right?
Lost in the Jungle... (by GiveMeOldAppBack on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 22:35:00)
This update is horrible. Going on 10 days and unable to access any books. I've tried reloading app as their Customer Service suggested (waste of phone call and time) and still won't work. I have over 3000 kindle books, not to mention the books and PDF's collected direct from publishers and authors....those are gone. And their iCloud is worthless when you can't even open the App. Why do you have to reload all your books and loose notes, bookmarks etc every time they have update....Nook or IBooks don't have that happen. If this isn't find quickly then it looks like Nook and IBooks will be getting more business....
New update stinks (by Kindle reader on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 21:58:00)
Hard to open, won't turn pages. Very upsetting.
App is SUPER slow (by SummerFoxx on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 21:54:00)
Love reading and love Kindle....am disliking the Kindle App. It's SUPER slow and crashes all the time since the update. Really like that I can have collections now!
I love it. (by jrichard012 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 21:36:00)
This new version is perfect and I can't understand why others feel differently.
Useless!! (by Gracesmom on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 21:23:00)
Ever since the last update, this app is useless! It crashes every time I open it. Good thing I still have my Nook and iBooks apps...THEY WORK!! I'm extremely frustrated with this update. FIX IT!!
App won't open (by staceytinva on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 19:23:00)
Ugh!!! The app won't even open since the update downloaded. I keep all my books on the Cloud so that's not a big deal, but I have over 300 samples which I just spent hours moving to my phone. If I lose those you will hear the scream from VA... Please fix this! It has now been 8 days since I updated and the kindle app STILL WON'T OPEN. Don't know if the problem is with kindle or iPhone but I suspect kindle. This is RIDICULOUS! Do you even read the reviews?!?! Please fix this NOW!
New version (by Daniela Medrano on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 18:50:00)
The newest version of Kindle is terrible, lots of bugs. It's really slow, especially when changing pages and highlighting words and it shuts off suddenly, eliminating the progress I'd made in the book. The previous version was a lot better.
Kindle (by Msrose73 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 18:41:00)
I love not having to go to the library or book store. The latest version with an easy to use dictionary is the greatest.
WON'T OPEN!! (by 10782 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 18:37:00)
How does this app have 3 stars, when the forums are chock full of complaints about app crashing and failure? And even if you're lucky enough for it to open, it's reportedly achingly slow. I call BS.
Love my kindle on iPhone (by Alysone on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 18:14:00)
Great! No other words needed.
Up until this now, 5 stars (by Chianne59 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 18:11:00)
They updated in January, 2014. Now it crashes a lot. I have hundreds of books. Before it was ok with that. Now it seems to have a problem around book 50. After I've downloaded dozens of books, it crashes and crashes. I also have a newspaper subscription. It crashes about three times before I can read it now. I open my library. Crash. Then I reopen my library, it's ok. Then I select other. It crashes. Then I select my newspaper to download, it crashes. I can go farther one step each time I reopen it. Then, when I go back to library, it crashes.

I love the kindle,new or old version.
Kindle it... (by ChristineMarieWarne on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 17:56:00)
I love my kindle but I fought it because I love books too. I have an original key board. But now I'm using kindle on my iPod touch, small screen but so portable... And I can switch colors and send thing back and forth between them all easily. I'm a happy reader!
Love it! (by Reina444 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 17:37:00)
Love this app. It has never given me a problem and it's perfect for an on-the-go-but-still-have-to-wait-around sort of lifestyle. I also like the fact that you can pick and choose which books from your Kindle library to put on the device instead of having them all cluttering your memory.
Terrible update (by Jenx9000 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 17:16:00)
Loved my Kindle app until the update. Now it shuts down, won't upload books and is slooooow. FIX IT!
Works for me (by Myaggie2 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 16:53:00)
I've never had one problem reading my kindle books on my iPhone using this app.
Disappointing (by Humble Reviewer on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 16:40:00)
Can not delete the returned library books from my Cloud listing. Had to delete app and re-install.
Bookmark (by Hevkev on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 16:34:00)
With the upgrade it doesn't show whether or not you have bookmarked the page!
Crashing (by lrslls on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 16:05:00)
Please help and fix this app. I have over 800 books and I cannot read any of them because the app keeps crashing.
Must have (by Ryteach on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 14:58:00)
Love this app! Use it more than anything else. I did not think I would ever switch from paper. Only thing I think it needs is a way to move read books into a folder apart from unread books.
Won't load (by S.Spriggs on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 13:14:00)
I have my textbooks on here and it takes forever for them to load. Some of the pages don't load at all. I need the book for class. This is very upsetting and makes me want to not use this app anymore. Might have to go back to the nook.
Enjoying it! (by Pls creative on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 13:01:00)
So far I am enjoying this app. I love having books with me so I can read at any time.
Issue with freezing screen & app closing (by Justjenn81 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 10:29:00)
I love this app. But since the previous update, I have been experiencing issues. The app automatically closes, after it freezes for a few minutes. This makes opening an ebook to read, difficult. Before the last update, I had no issues with this. But now it's happening a lot. Please fix this issue.
Slowed way down... (by Okmokmokmokmokmokmokmokmokmokm on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 09:20:00)
Version 4.1 has a real hard time switching to the library view from the ebook reading view. Then when trying to perform updates or downloads of ebooks it hangs. After a while it unfreezes and does what was commanded, but it is not as responsive as it used to be.
My most used app... (by AymR on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 08:52:00)
No problems for me on my iPhone 5S... Love this app. Gets by far more usage than any other for me.

New update crashes app (by Shanyafaye on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 04:50:00)
New update made this app worthless. It crashes, takes forever to load, you have trouble downloading,reading books, turning pages... Basically makes you not want to use a kindle. its like the programmers are telling us to run away and Try iBooks instead. I want my old kindle app back please.
Used to be the best.....now it is the WORST!!! (by devinejem on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 04:28:00)
UPDATE (1/13/2014): Do NOT do the latest update. It is VERY buggy. Very slow and frequent crashes. The best reading app around. With collections to sort my books, I'm able to easily find and keep track of my books and documents. Now if they would just integrate the buying feature instead of having to use a separate app it would be heaven.
Always good (by Aidylt on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 03:07:00)
I have been using the app for several years. I am Always able to read my books, and it suits my kindle book reading skills.
Kindle (or the App) are my best literary friends... (by smncdm on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 02:43:00)
I started using a Kindle when it was first introduced, 1st. Generation. I have had several newer models since then. I also use the IOS (Apple iPad) app also for the last year and a half. I have read at least 50 books using this app, probably more. Each update added new functionality. It easy to use, intuitive and a pleasure to read.
Great app (by Music Nymph on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 02:40:00)
Easy to use, best reader app program on my iPhone.
I love it! (by Smilieria on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 02:25:00)

Update? (by Mandyann5 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 02:20:00)
I wouldn't know about the update. Been trying for days to open the app, but it won't OPEN! Please fix!!!
So convenient (by KegeLock on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 02:13:00)
Kindle makes it easy to read on the go. Instead of traveling with several heavy books, they're all on my phone and tablet!
Love my Kindle (by Nap clock on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 02:11:00)
Love this app. I never have problems with content I've bought. But there is room for improvement. 1. If a customer has a problem with the operation of the app the tech support people should get the problem vs customer service. 2. You should be able to remove content from your cloud or let some content be locked so kids can't access your adult content. If you remove them from cloud you can't get them back. Otherwise I love the app I buy plenty of books and they are all accessible. The app is super easy to use. You can change your view of the book as well.
Love it !!! (by Arms1990 on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 02:03:00)

No problems with app (by Mellie in OK on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 01:34:00)
I love the Kindle app. Don't have any problems. Prefer it on apple to actual Kindle since I have access to all of my books from various publishers and sites.
Dictionary functionality is horribly inconsistent (by Dcrwregetbetbrtb on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 01:05:00)
Sometimes the app defines the word you are trying to define, but mostly, it does not. Apple really should test these products before bringing them to the public. Very annoying that the dictionary feature doesn't work on a consistent basis.
This is my favorite App (by Katherine Urrutia on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 00:40:00)
I don't use hardly any of the apps on my ipad but this app I use every single day!
The latest upgrade is too slow!!! (by Camilla Greaves on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 00:18:00)
I love the app. Use it every say but the new upgrade is too painful. Library loads sloooowwwwllllyyyyy. Sorting is also very slow.
Love Kindle!!!! (by Defiantly will buy later on Tue, 14 Jan 2014 00:13:00)
Easy to access books on your kindle cloud. Only problem is that you can't access the kindle store though the app.

My GO TO book reader (by Edmisten on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 23:30:00)
Kindle app + iPhone = reading heaven Having a library on my phone has increased the time I get to read significantly - definitely adds to the happiness factor.
what did they do??? (by Nikademus on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 23:13:00)
great update. Before 4.1, highlighting was a fun smooth experience. Now.....its buggy, and painfully hitches in fits and starts as it desperately tries to catch up with one's finger. Highlighting a large section now takes several seconds as you wait for the app to catch up. Please put the earlier version back up.
Crashes (by B.e.Angel on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 23:12:00)
New version crashes and is soooo slow to go to the library from a book, open a book, scroll through the library. What happened!! Wish I could see reviews and synopses from the app for samples and books I've bought (and forgotten). But that's just a wish. Functionality is a must!!!
Love the kindle App! (by Aseacw on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 23:05:00)
I didn't buy the kindle since I already had an iPad. However having the kindle app is almost as good as having a kindle!
Great app (by Glindaruns on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 22:58:00)
No words can say how fantastic this app is.
The worst of all! (by A49@ on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 22:52:00)
What can we do to make this app work? Every time I open it. It closes after few seconds, its a shame, so much technology and updates for nothing, shame.....
App WON'T OPEN (by Mellaw3258 on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 22:20:00)
After update 1-6-2014, app kept crashing!!!!! I removed app and re-installed AND DOWNLOADED 3/4 of my 2500 books for it to work again. Now this evening 1-13-2014 the app CRASHES AGAIN!! There's no update listed on my ipad. I wish they would get this straightened out. Guess I will have to start over once again. This is the 3rd time I have to download books again since I've had the iPad. Besides this also uses up my monthly data. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!!!!
Love (by Nat(:915629 on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 22:17:00)

New version WAY slow (by Jlperh12! on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 21:34:00)
Advise anyone against update. Wish I could get old version back on my ipad
Slower than previous version (by MEB1938 on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 20:50:00)
I use Kindle on my iPad and prefer it to some of the other iPad readers, but have a number of wish list preferences. First, it needs to be faster, next, I would like several ways of sorting books currently in my library - by book type - ie romance, mystery, paranormal, history, nonfiction, etc, Third, and keep my rating for a completed book.I wish it were possible to tell when I stored a book and when I finished it. I would like to hook my books up with Goodreads

Up until the latest update, this was a fantastic app. Now constant hangs, delays, and shutdowns have me turning to my iphone to read. So so aggravating.!!!
Review (by counsgreen on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 20:24:00)
This version is harder to use. It doesn't show all your books and documents though it says it is. You can't create shelves. This version needs work
PLEASE FIX THE UPDATE!!!!! Update keeps hanging up. (by cdfys on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 20:12:00)
Please fix the update. I can't open my kindle app since the update. It hangs up and then closes.
Not happy with app update (by Judesdell on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 20:04:00)
Installed latest update and it sticks terribly on my iPad 2. It was perfectly fine before now it takes a while to go into library or even switch between cloud and device to access my books. I am not a happy camper at all!
Love this app but... (by Sazm1219 on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 19:22:00)
This is a great app and I use it all the time but would love a feature where you can actually put books into folders on screen for easier access rather than add to collection option. Other than that its 5 stars
Great - but (by J Loves Mysteries on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 19:06:00)
I love the Kindle App for IPad. It make reading several books at a time easy (I used to carry 3 books around with me, a junk novel, a good piece of literature, and a non-fiction). My only complaint is that when you accumulate a large library (as I have) when you delete an item from your device, it remains in the library and there is a downward pointing arrow on the book's icon. Not every book that that is "new" bears a "new" label, and thus it is often a daunting task to determine whether you have already read a particular book. I have started to keep a list of finished books so that I don't open one that I have already read.
Please fix the update! (by becake on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 17:24:00)
I love kindle and use it all the time in my work - but the new update is terrible! Books won't open, it's always crashing. Please fix it!!
Update is very slow (by Careful Customer on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 17:15:00)
This app was better when collections were added. Thanks for that improvement, but this new update makes the app very sluggish. I'm hoping it will be fixed soon. Is it possible to test the updates before releasing them?
What a disappointment!!! (by Post-it Lover on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 16:19:00)
This update ruined my kindle app. It won't even let me get into the app to read my many books. Someone better fix this soooooon! I am not going to re-download all my books because of your screwup!
Kindle for iPad (by Update has BUGS on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 15:31:00)
Do not download this app update. The screen goes to black when you attempt to open the application. NEVER, EVER OPENS. Cannot get to the book you are nearly finished with. VERY FRUSTRATING. Please fix this thing !!!
Can't synch with my Kindle (by Foodiemo on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 15:27:00)
Worked fine until the recent update. Now I can 't get a new purchase from my Kindle to the app.
Miserable Update (by brim98 on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 13:56:00)
How is it possible that you can take a perfectly good app and slow it down so much. Your developers (if you can call them that) have the faintest idea of how to develop. Absolutely horrible.
Won't open (by Kindle4.1Hater on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 11:17:00)
If I could I would give this version zero stars. After updating it won't open anymore. Now I've been a couple of days without bein able to read anything in my kindle library. I've got an iPod 4th gen, iOS 6
It worked fine till I updated. (by Jan5347680 on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 07:51:00)
Not going to do uninstall/reinstall if that's the plan. Too many books. I'm going to point out that one of the really big advantages iPad has over kindle and nook is it's ability to download both of them. It would be a shame to give up that advantage. 6 days later and it still won't open. This is ridiculous. I'm not going to start buying iBooks or whatever your version is. I've got too much invested in kindle. Please fix or I'll star reconsidering that air iPad I've been thinking about getting and buy a replacement for my kindle instead.
Great app (by Lbooklover on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 07:43:00)
I just recently got my iPod touch and I have kindle fire hd but when I can't use that I use the one on here and it works very well the only thing I don't like is when you scroll over words it automatically highlights the words if they can fix that you guys would have 5 ⭐️'S
Latest update keeps crashing!! (by Gary Smythe on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 06:07:00)
I have used the Kindle app for a long time, and it has always worked well until now. The latest update as of Jan. 13, 2014 almost always crashes when I attempt to open it. I have spent a significant amount of money on Kindle ebooks, and I do not appreciate being unable to read them. I have tried re-downloading and reinstalling the app several times, but that did not help at all.
Slow since the update... (by Krisanta Mercado on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 04:22:00)
Since it was updated, it got really slow to the point that it would just hang. I hope there would be a fix for that. Frustrating! You wanna go to the next page but you have to wait for at least 30 seconds to a minute for it to move.
Yet another update victim (by lncmason on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 03:57:00)
Do you do this on purpose? Update after update makes the program worse, most of the time. This latest update is disastrous - like everyone else, my app on our iPad opens to the screen with the word Kindle on it, goes to a neutral screen, then kicks me back out to the iPad home screen. Thanks a lot. I have thousands of books and don't want to have to delete this app (AGAIN) and re-download everything. Seriously, was this on purpose? Why do you do this? Fix this, please!
Works for me (by Kelhamdrix on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 03:21:00)
App works for me. However, the app has been learning my reading speed for the past 5 hours. I think everything else works through. iPad mini.
What happened? (by Javafiendx on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 02:07:00)
I can't use the app anymore. I tried deleting and reloading my books. Now I can't even do that. This update has bugs.
Can't change users (by sqoosher on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 01:35:00)
I understand that the app is synced, but you should be able to log out of an account. Things happen where you can't use certain emails anymore. Incredibly annoying
Has not Worked Since the Last Update (by mcqjim on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 01:25:00)
App crashes on certain books. It worked fine before the update. Don't you people test your application before releasing it? Nice work!
