Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review
Release Date: March 4, 2009
No app lock (by Dichesari on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 22:53:00)
I love the kindle app for Ipad. For me, the only BIG FLAW is the fact that there is no lock or password for the app. This is VERY important to add, since I (and I am sure that many people too) have reads that are not suitable for kids. I have adults books, sensible letters etc, that have to be protected from my children. So amazon people, PUT A LOCK OR SOMETHING to the app so we the users can lock it. If lock is added I will give 5 stars. Also the fact that some times when reading, Ipad goes to sleep mode, although I am still reading. I think this 2 things is all this app needs to be perfect. Then I will give 5 stats.
Dictionary bug still not fixed (by ::miche124:: on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 22:30:00)
A 5-star app with some persistent problems: Dictionary font too light to read. No way to read synopses or reviews of purchased Kindle books from within the app. No function to *browse and buy* Kindle books from within the app.
Love the reading features but lacks ability to organize easily (by MicheeBee on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 13:25:00)
I own well over a thousand Kindle books and I can't choose to view them except for recent, author, or title. What about by series, genre, publish date or something else? I'd also like to be able to keep track of books I've read or those that are unread, even if the book is in the cloud. I also use Kindle for Mac and time I spend organizing on either device doesn't sync between my devices-why? One more little complaint- the screen blank out when I switch to the Kindle app is SO annoying. Overdrive and Nook app don't do that. What's up?
battery drain (by noneareleft on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 13:17:00)
The April 15 update to version 4.8.1 seems to be draining the battery on my iPad mini with Retina much more quickly than previous versions. I don’t believe that I am using the app any more than before, but my batter has gone down ten percentage points within half an hour of use. Maybe this is normal and I’m so battery sensitive, but I don’t recall this happening before the update. As no features were added with this update I recommend waiting this one out.
Best book/magazine reader for the iPad (by Dmc75002 on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 12:29:00)
I have long ago relegated the buggy iBook app to a repository of other apps that I can't delete. This is my go-to book/magazine reader. Tied to your amazon account and you have 1-click purchase. Click - read. As simple as that.
Great app (by So it is the best on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 11:57:00)
This is the best reading app I ever had 😀😀
You didn't fix the dictionary front (by suecqueue on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 11:17:00)
We wrote you about the awful change to the dictionary front. I took two stars off for it. You had a chance to fix it and didn't, so you lose two more stars, because now you're just being childishly stubborn. Here's a tutorial. Look at the Wiki font in the very next box and make the dictionary font like that. Got it? This dumb light gray font fetish is costing Amazon money. I just had to return a new Amazon product because the app had that idiotic light gray font. Grow up and fix these fixations you seem to have.
Still Needs Immersion reading with real-time highlighting (by N/A 1234 on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 10:38:00)
When will Immersion reading **with real-time highlighting** be available like it is on the kindle e-readers? You've only implemented half of the immersion feature.. Please finish the real time highlighting piece! It really does improve the comprehension and retention for complex subjects. Why is this not completed? Did someone write poor requirements or incomplete acceptance criteria for building the new functionality? Helpful? Vote below!
Six words (by NealSavage on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 04:52:00)
Get. A. Nook. You. Fat. Losers. App's okay, but I recommend the nook. For very light reading, for maybe half an hour a day, this is alright, but reading on as small phone screen just doesn't work.
Great app (by Big gonzo 82 on Wed, 15 Apr 2015 20:01:00)
Update: wish the color of the highlight and links were easier to see in night mode because it's almost impossible to read in night mode as is. I don't know about you but I've switched to using my kindle app as my main go to app for ebooks for a few reasons. 1 unlike iBooks with the kindle app you read your books on any device so long as the kindle app can be downloaded. 2 the price 9 out of 10 times the books are cheaper at Amazon. 3 you can start a highlight and carry it over to the next page plus if you highlight a word it will automatically bring up the definition. 4 if you touch a link the app has a browser witching unlike the iBooks that take you to safari. 5 Amazon seems to care about the quality and iBooks just seem to be happy where it is. Maybe one day iBooks will improve and maybe Apple will make it easier to ask question and actually get a response.
Dictionary/Definition Font Suddenly Too Light to Read! (by Bjeans on Wed, 15 Apr 2015 18:34:00)
Would be a 5-star but I read definitions all through books, and suddenly the font is so small it's barely legible. There are hundreds (thousands?) of identical complaints on line, including on Amazon's discussion board. Coding error? Some young pup with 20 20 eyes loving spidery/light fonts? App is almost useless to me now.
Enjoy it (by COutz4321 on Thu, 16 Apr 2015 17:21:00)
I have had no problems with the app. I may have over looked it but it seems a little difficult to keep my place when I go to look at something else
Love it but (by Coralrenee2002 on Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:52:00)
Love this app but can you plz make it an option that it will read the books to you
Kindle for iPad/iPhone (by Smokymb on Wed, 15 Apr 2015 11:57:00)
The font size selector has recently developed a mind of its own. Font size will change as you move to a new chapter, stays as selected unless you get out of the app or go to a new chapter -- but not always. Couldn't figure out how to send directly to the developer; hope they read the reviews.
Not syncing (by Gbcdgjvf on Wed, 15 Apr 2015 06:29:00)
Not sure what's going on with this app but it is no longer syncing with my phone or laptop. Super annoying 😥
Kindle App - Truely Awesome (by krazbowler on Wed, 15 Apr 2015 06:20:00)
Love love this app for my iPad/iPhone.. All of my books are listed and can read them at any time.. And the download process is very Quick..
How annoying (by YourMomHasNicknames on Wed, 15 Apr 2015 04:26:00)
Look, I know it's a first world problem, but this app is for the first world. ADD A SETTING TO KEEP THE MOTHER FLIPPING DEVICE AWAKE WHILE I'M READING. Only using this because the kindle was the only store that had the book. Please fix.
Finally, no flash on refresh (by Jaymerica on Tue, 14 Apr 2015 21:40:00)
After so long, finally fixed the Intrusive white flash on refresh. Unfortunately, characters in the corners of the pages now have a washed out appearance. Still can't left justify text. Too many taps to manually refresh, and it's still needed if switching services a lot.
Best Reading App (by KrysCat on Tue, 14 Apr 2015 20:08:00)
I'm an avid reader and I have a Kindle app for all of my devices. Easy to use and download reading materials. I also own a Kindle but probably use my iPhone the most because it is so convenient.
Portable (by JLL94 on Tue, 14 Apr 2015 20:05:00)
I love that I have my book with me no matter what device I have.
Infinite scrolling please (by Ōcat on Tue, 14 Apr 2015 17:43:00)
It is so frustrating to read a few sentences and have to tap the side of the screen to get to the next page. You can't see the entirety of a paragraph at one time that is split between pages. iBooks does this...
Flawless (by NjoyPerfectBliss on Tue, 14 Apr 2015 03:57:00)
The kindle app is super easy to use. It is intuitive. Text is easy to resize fonts, line lengths and space between lines. The screen offers different "paper" lighting modes and the ability to dim the light intensity. One can bookmark, make notes, highlight text and define unfamiliar words for contextual ease. Not to mention that it will sync between all media devices that have the app installed and the kindle cloud. Personally, I would not ever use any online app for textbooks, I'm old school and love the tactile response that books offer for retrieving data. But for pleasure outside of academia, this allows me to take my entire library with me on vacation, appointments or to just hide away in bed with a lightweight easy to hold "book."
faulty rendering results in blurry fuzzy and therefore unreadable mags (by Smallpot64 on Mon, 13 Apr 2015 23:05:00)
update breaks rendering, with magazines blurry and fuzzy - no joy reading with this version - urgent remedy required!
Still not fixed (by Snaresman on Mon, 13 Apr 2015 16:53:00)
I love the app and use it all the time. A couple updates ago, the definition part of the dictionary was turned to light gray text. Very hard to read. The examples are still black and easy to read. I sent them a message about it and they said it would be fixed right away. Well after a couple updates, it still hasn't been fixed. The dictionary is now worthless. Back to five stars of it's fixed.
Needs a few fixes (by 9898clw on Mon, 13 Apr 2015 13:47:00)
Love the newest addition to the kindle app. Now if you could please organize the books in the kindle unlimited section a bit better that would be great. No matter which selection you choose all of the books are under that area. I have found strictly romance in the biography selection, thriller in the romance. I love my kindle unlimited as well. I read over 20 books a month and this is a godsend. There have been more and more titles added weekly so there are plenty of selections
Great app (by Shepherd24 on Mon, 13 Apr 2015 02:10:00)
I love my kindle app. Easy to use, good font choices, it's just good. Get it, you won't be disappointed.
Kindle (by Daniel-san99 on Mon, 13 Apr 2015 00:50:00)
A nice convenient app to read my favorites.
Kindle /iPad does not sync (by Baterista9 on Sun, 12 Apr 2015 10:48:00)
Kindle v. 4.8 iOS v. 8.3 Manual sync does not complete. In vintage computer-speak, appears to get stuck in loop. Have tried trouble-shooting steps from FAQ. Could not find "Annotations Sync & Backup" in app settings. Manual sync works fine with same versions of Kindle & iOS for iPhone.
Great app (by Big gonzo 82 on Sun, 12 Apr 2015 09:10:00)

Great app (by Goodvweather on Sun, 12 Apr 2015 06:55:00)
Would have given five stars if page numbers were available with all books.
Kindly App disappeared on my ipad (by Kindle woes on Sun, 12 Apr 2015 04:55:00)
Very frustrated. My Kindle app totally disappeared from my ipad and not able to open it from the App Store.
I love this app! (by Alien Zombie on Sat, 11 Apr 2015 15:02:00)
I love my kindle and I love this app. There are some issues with the syncing capabilities. I have Whispersync on my devices and set up in my account on Amazon but none of my devices are updating. It's showing the last sync was completed a month ago and I have tried several different types of troubleshooting, I would like to see the syncing fixed in the next update.
Need PDF text search and hyperlink (by Jichao Yin on Sat, 11 Apr 2015 03:56:00)
These two fundamental functions are key to fast navigation PDFs and are available in iBooks. Is there any plan to add them?
This app is garbage… (by blackchrome76 on Sat, 11 Apr 2015 02:49:00)
I have Amazon Instant Video, Amazon Prime and a few others yet this one doesn’t work, it can’t find my user name or email (probably because I’ve turned off location services and disabled any tracking). This app is 78 MB of useless spyware crap. They could’ve just sent a locked PDF or ePub doc but since they can’t gather intel that way, they are not going to do it. Amazon buys and then re-sells 3rd rate junk software (and products) this is no exception, avoid it. Also, if you do buy any audio files off of Amazon, skip their version of iTunes and just demand the straight audio files (via customer service chat). They want you to download their app but you don’t want that garbage on your Mac.
Doesn't Work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (by pjburnett2011 on Sat, 11 Apr 2015 01:56:00)
Ok had to Deregister not only once but twice to get books to download, and still having major problems with this new "Update" now it takes minutes to even get "One" book to download, I have over 600+ books. Not a happy Amazon customer, and yes Amazon gave me customer service to Deregister my device. This app need to be fixed ASAP.
Oops (by debgc on Fri, 10 Apr 2015 20:31:00)
Since the latest update, I cannot get the Kindle app to open! Need a fix....FAST.
Too light font color (light grey) in the dictionary box (by MX882 not detect on Fri, 10 Apr 2015 17:56:00)
App is very good, sync is good, other setting is great. But, dictionary function is not what I used to have before. Dictionary, fully downloaded, has 3 capabilities, Dictionary, Wiki, and Translate. Within the dictionary' s box, the definition's font color is too light grey to read well,so I need to go one more step to read the full definition. It is the only minus point.Hope next upgrade, app designer can fix this.
Newsroom gone blurry (by PdR123 on Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:51:00)
Please fix...I thought I'd had a stroke or something. All Kindle magazine publications have gone ...blurry! I was about ready to pull the plug until I see...I'm not alone.
Takes up too much storage space (by Muse+ on Fri, 10 Apr 2015 12:16:00)
I don't like that unlike previous versions, the app now consumes more storage space than necessary before I've even downloaded any books off my cloud to my device. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles; I just want to be able to read my books and access my docs. Until this app is cleaned up, I won't download it to my device again.
Bravo (by jeff9909 on Fri, 10 Apr 2015 10:52:00)
I think Amazon as done a very nice job with both this app and their e-readers. This app is well organized, intuitive and leaves nothing to be desired, in my opinion.
Top dark (by Liam_Sable on Fri, 10 Apr 2015 00:48:00)
Putting the reader in black mode makes iPad screen go near completely dark. It's also very dark for the white and sepia options, pathetically so at max brightness. Please fix.
Excellent reading app (by hsg! on Thu, 09 Apr 2015 22:40:00)
I use this app about as much as any other one. I like how quick the books load and the ease of reading.
Love this ap. (by Rvt2mt on Thu, 09 Apr 2015 21:29:00)
If I fall asleep while reading it keeps my place, and turns itself off. I focus on books I can get from the library. No more late fees, they return themselves. Lots of useful things that make it easier to read. I can make the type larger, or change the format. I control the brightness. I can highlight. Best of all the dictionary. I read old British mysteries, so I use the UK English. I've learned all sorts of things.
Fix the Syncing Problem Already! (by Finecat on Thu, 09 Apr 2015 16:02:00)
Since the February 16, 2015 app update, the major problem has been that it has, continually, failed to sync manually or automatically. Uninstalling/reinstalling/rebooting/etcetera the app does NOT fix the problem; and the latest update on April 6, 2015 did NOT fix this problem either. Many of us are long-time Kindle users, so this is unacceptable, to say the least. After discussing this issue (among others that I have not noted here because the list is too long) with Amazon technical support, they only ever say they are working on the problems. I will, only, update my review to a better star rating, after Amazon takes this issue seriously. (Using an iPhone 6, always with the most current iOS installed - which, at this time, is v8.3.0.)
It's not working (by Angry college kid on Thu, 09 Apr 2015 04:18:00)
Ever since I updated the app, I can't open my textbooks!!! It keeps on crashing. Please fix soon I need to read my textbooks for class!!!
Where Did My App Go?? (by Mana Starrr on Thu, 09 Apr 2015 03:43:00)
For some reason, since the latest update, the app has gone missing on my phone. It's simply not there. Normally, I love this app, but it isn't very lovable when it isn't available for use. The main issue is that I can't seem to find it physically on my device, but when I check on the App Store for it, I can not re-download the app; I can only select "open" on the App Store for this app, but nothing is opened. What happened to my app and where did it go? Also, page numbers would be very useful.
Great app (by Beyond-the-stars-music on Thu, 09 Apr 2015 02:58:00)
I like having all my kindle books on all my devices. Great for long waits at the doctor and stuff.
Crashes (by Johnny B8s on Thu, 09 Apr 2015 02:49:00)
Crashes immediately upon launching.
Can't read my books. (by GabeDaMFBabe on Wed, 08 Apr 2015 23:51:00)
I downloaded some books I purchased and I can't read them. Shows me nothing but blank pages. I called Kindle Support after I deleted the app, deleted the book, de-registered the device, re-downloaded the app, the book, re-registered the device. I told them I did all of this and they had me do it all again, oh well. None of it worked and that was it, the representative said they would write a letter to their publisher. Sounds like that will take a long time. Meanwhile I'm left with a picture of a cover and that's it.
My Kindle (by Judy Rogers on Wed, 08 Apr 2015 21:51:00)
I absolutely like my kindle so much I don't think I could never be without one now. I love the convenience of having a book that you want to read with just one click. To me, it is much more convenient having this, versus a bulky book to carry around. Such a great invention.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 51th to 100th
Good app (by Leslieb9 on Wed, 08 Apr 2015 17:12:00)
This is a good app for its purpose but I usually use iBooks!
Not meant for textbooks (by Kbc610 on Wed, 08 Apr 2015 16:24:00)
I am trying to complete a M.Ed. degree with a majority of my textbooks on my iPad. I enjoy ebooks because they are easy to search and cross-reference. Amazon's Kindle marketplace is the only place I could find some of my books, so I'm glad they have this app for iPad. I also appreciate their "rent a book" option to save money. That being said, their highlighting tool needs some work. Sometimes it forces me to highlight additional words that I don't need to include in a passage, which means the notes I create from these highlights are a little incoherent. I also can't highlight continuously from one page to the nest as I can with iBooks. Too often, the tap response to highlight inadvertently triggers a thumbnail view of all the pages in the book across the bottom of the screen. This app feels rough around the edges, I would prefer if all my textbooks were available in the content of iBooks. Between iBooks, Kindle, and Google Play, this app comes in at #2: nice, but not great.
Reading = Kindle (by Pedoright on Wed, 08 Apr 2015 15:51:00)
What could be easier? Best reading solution since the printing press. My first book question - Can I get it on Kindle?
Update broke magazines (by Bizzibizzibizza on Wed, 08 Apr 2015 15:03:00)
I read magazines using the Kindle app...and the most current update really messed them up. The text is now fuzzy and pixilated. I see others complaining about the same thing. Sure hope this is fixed quickly.
Locations! (by GingerMan0623 on Wed, 08 Apr 2015 03:11:00)
Why do they have to have locations! On my book: the blood of Olympus, it won't tell me my page number! Only my location! Most books in the kindle have the page. So if you are reading this, take this thought into consideration.
Still Needs Immersion reading with real-time highlighting (by N/A 1234 on Wed, 08 Apr 2015 01:56:00)
When will Immersion reading **with real-time highlighting** be available like it is on the kindle e-readers? You've only implemented half of the immersion feature.. Please finish the real time highlighting piece! It really does improve the comprehension and retention for complex subjects. Why is this not completed? Did someone write poor requirements or incomplete acceptance criteria for building the new functionality? Helpful? Vote below!
Get the "Customers also bought..." Thing back! (by Buddy Buddy 2001 on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 22:47:00)
At the end of a sample, there would be a two tabs that would say "Also by (author)..." and "Customer also bought..." And now it's gone. Annoying! Bring it back!
Still makes books harder to read than necessary (by esoterica on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 18:37:00)
No more Kindle books for me until Amazon again until Amazon fixes the problem of not allowing left justification of text. Full justification makes things much harder to read because it creates huge gaps between words and rivers of white space down the page, especially on small screens. This is supported by every readability study ever, so the fact that Amazon doesn't allow this means that Amazon is purposely making the reading experience worse. iBooks allows setting any book to left justification. Ahhhh.
Kindle app broken w latest update (by Atigress on Wed, 08 Apr 2015 12:54:00)
Love this app. Latest update broke app, unable to use. Please fix. Use phone for kindle when out and about. And kindle paper white at home
I don't see updated Icon on App Store application. /iPad Air (by Sherap6 on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 16:54:00)
I don't know what is going on. Looks great on iPhone 5s.
Needs better organization (by Plboogie24 on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 12:44:00)
I love my kindle !! I love being able to read where ever I am, I think it's great and the only thing I would like would be to have some kind of alert or email sent when a book I've purchased in a series has another book published, a year + can go in between books and I don't always remember and it can be tiring to go back and look up each book to see if another addition to the series has been published. I'd also like a better way to sort books, I have a lot of books downloaded and it can be very cluttered, I wish there was a way to sort them in folders where I could put books that I've already read so they wouldn't show up in the main list.
Fix the Syncing Problem Already! (by Finecat on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 06:11:00)

Still can't find the page numbers (by Captain Nash on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 04:09:00)
Really need those page numbers
Latest Update broke something (by oXo_firefly on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 03:21:00)
I love this app, recent updates and addition of new features are all great, but this latest 4.8 seems to make reading magazine a pain as the rendering engine seems to be a bit broken, everything is like blurred. Please fix, thanks.
Amazon Kindle App (by Lora1 on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 01:00:00)
I love this app it allows me to pick up on my phone or iPad, right where I finished reading on my Kindle, whenever I am not at home and want to do some reading. What a pleasure :D
Not up to basic Kindle standard (by syncTony on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 00:56:00)
While reading a book on this app works just fine, the library view lags far behind the clean and simple interface provided by the Kindle. My two main issues are (1) that in collection view, I can't get a list, only pictures. This is not only cumbersome, but some (non- Amazon) books don't have covers. (2) In list or collection view, I can't tell if a book is in a collection or not.
Crashes (by Chi50 on Mon, 06 Apr 2015 22:35:00)
The app crashes upon opening. Have deleted, reinstalled, soft boot, hard boot. Simply doesn't work on my iPhone 6.
This new update crashes (by Delta_9 on Mon, 06 Apr 2015 17:36:00)
This is a great app however, when I load a new book and try to open it, it crashes. Please fix
Great app....except with Kindle Unlimited (by MsLynn-va on Tue, 07 Apr 2015 10:05:00)
Love the iPad kindle app, generally works smooth, notes and highlights are simple to make and don't kill the flow of your reading. Except with the new Kindle Unlimited thing that Amazon is trying. I guess because it only loads one page at a time going back and forth during periods of distracted reading (I.e. Reading in the middle of everyday life) is a little challenging. But still...love the app!
A salesman in every pocket. (by ikt on Mon, 06 Apr 2015 21:04:00)
In case the "Before You Go" feature didn't annoy you enough to work for free posting reviews for Amazon, now it will try to sell you more books, while mining your information. The core experience is unchanged, and you still can't upload PDFs.
Talk about bloat-ware. (by Dave's Pad on Mon, 06 Apr 2015 21:01:00)
73 megabytes for a reading app? It's nicely integrated with Amazon.com when I buy stuff through my browser. But for cryin' out loud... 73 megabytes for a reading app?
Perfect for subway (by NYC 12345678 on Mon, 06 Apr 2015 14:49:00)
I live in Manhattan and use the app on a daily basis on my iPhone 5. Perfect for subway commute because it allows reading and turning pages with one hand (needed in rush hour when one is standing). Dictionary and formatting functions work very well for one hand use. Sync is flawless. I don't see any negatives. Free.
Not equal to B&N (by WitchyWomyn on Mon, 06 Apr 2015 07:56:00)
Would be nice if background and text color options were available, as well as creating a custom reading environment that could be saved. More rants, like B&N would be nice also.
Highlight PDF articles (by MH Fitness on Sun, 05 Apr 2015 20:59:00)
It would be nice if Kindle provided users with the ability to highlight text with .pdf articles?
Love my Kindle (by Otomstreet on Sun, 05 Apr 2015 20:07:00)
I'm a big reader and Kindle is just perfect for me. I have one at home and the Kindle app on my phone so I always have a book with me.
Awesome & so functional (by Pureart on Sun, 05 Apr 2015 19:22:00)
Wow I don't know where to begin really. I'm a apple user from the beginning of time. I have to say I'm starting to learn apple is only good at creating hardware and their software STINKS! This app is so much better than iBook I'm shouldn't be speechless but I am. I love this kindle app on my iPad & iPhone. I love that after you highlighted text you can view it all on one page! So so helpful it's awesome. And super functional. It even tells you where you stop reading on your other device and give you the option to pick where you left off or start where the current device is. I regret buying the books I did on iBook now I'm a fan of kindle and will become a part of the unlimited monthly reading club. You like to read books get this app over anything else, you will not regret it promise.
Ms. (by FriendlyRI on Sun, 05 Apr 2015 17:22:00)
Love this app...stores my books, finds my page, defines words I'm not familiar with and is always available wherever I am. Doesn't get any better than that for me.
Perfect for those with little money or space (by Clint F Barton on Sun, 05 Apr 2015 15:29:00)
As a student I find I hard to have much disposable income or free space. I move a fair amount and tuition isn't cheap. The kindle app is a perfect solution. I can have all my favorite books (and even some text books!) in one small spot!
What happened to page turn animation? (by ImAltastic on Sat, 04 Apr 2015 21:40:00)
Update 4/4/15: finally re added page turn animations! Say what you will about skeumorphic design this is one that's a big deal to me! This ones going back to 5 stars!! The app itself still works just fine and I know I'm being nitpicky but where did the page turn animation go? Its something I actually enjoyed for whatever reason..
Great reading experience but library functionality poor (by Diamondstud32 on Sat, 04 Apr 2015 20:11:00)
I love the reading on my kindle app, but I am baffled by the functionality of the library. I suppose it is fine for casual readers but as an avid book reader, I cannot understand some of the lack of functionality for storing, organizing and finding books in my kindle library. I read a lot, and the way I shop and read is pretty much the same for bound books and e-books. When I shop, I usually buy several books at the same time. Some I read immediately, and some may sit for quite a while, which leads me to the first issue: 1). There needs to be a way to quickly see which books have been read, and which have not. Books have been categorized and sub-categorized into fiction, non-fiction, mystery, romance, biography, etc. When shopping, I can choose a category so that I can see quickly the kind of books I am looking for. However, in my kindle library, I have to create my own groups add each book into a group if I want to see just those books. While I appreciate the ability to group books as I want, I'd like to be able to use the already established categories of the books in my library..this is the next issue: 2) There should be a way to bring the categories into the library so I can filter by category and sub-category, such as mystery, and then just true crime or police procedural, or cozy. Also, I like to re-read some of my favorite books. In some of my favorite series, when the latest installment is released, I often like to refresh my memory by re-reading the last book or two, which leads to a couple of issues: 3) I'd like a way to easily view a series of books in order. 4) I'd like to be able to mark books as 'favorites' so I can quickly find books I want to read again. Finally, as with music, I think we all have our 'guilty pleasures', books we like to read that we might not want to advertise. With bound books, I have "public" bookshelves in my living room or office that anyone who comes to my house can see. The I might keep my trashy romances in the closet or somewhere private. So my final issue: 5) There should be a private section in my kindle library that can't be seen by anyone I hand my phone or tablet to.
2 common problems (by Matt L. S. on Sat, 04 Apr 2015 19:09:00)
2 big problems: 1. No way to view page number unless the particular book you're using has this enabled. 2. No way to highlight across multiple pages. Have to mess with font size/page display in a lot of instances.
Book Browser broke sample downloads (by John22578 on Sat, 04 Apr 2015 14:08:00)
Changing my rating from a five stars to a three stars, because even though the reading experience is a delight, the new book browser functionality in the iPhone app adds unnecessary clicks to the downloading of free samples, and even then, the download doesn't can't get past 1%.
Best reading app ever (by Dantheman0604 on Sat, 04 Apr 2015 12:58:00)
I have used a member of reading apps but this the best by far. Amazon has done an incredible job building this app.
Winderful (by Maeday42 on Sat, 04 Apr 2015 11:18:00)
I fought giving up my "real" books for a long time. Tried Kindle and the system is great, opens up a world of more books.
Kindle (by Clark77494 on Sat, 04 Apr 2015 03:52:00)
Excellent software. Can read books where ever I go. The nice thing is I can read a book on my PC then go to bed with my tablet and read where I left off.
I love this app! (by Qui222 on Sat, 04 Apr 2015 03:12:00)
I love the Kindle app! It is so convenient!
Love it all (by 14resser2010 on Sat, 04 Apr 2015 02:39:00)
Great app. Use it daily.
Love the App (by Danlmosher on Fri, 03 Apr 2015 22:22:00)
With my iPad with Kindle app and my kindle paper white I love my mobile library! Reading is fundamental.
Great app!! (by the only app I own on Fri, 03 Apr 2015 18:29:00)
I love this app - looks great on my new phone, and finally, if you get a book from "kindle unlimited" or prime - it will now be available to read on the phone app - and samples. A few months ago that wasn't the case. The one thing I do not like is that this app makes it convenient to read anywhere- so it is too easy to get distracted at work. Which happens. A lot.
Best app ever! (by Necker user on Fri, 03 Apr 2015 14:52:00)
Best app ever! I can read wherever and whenever I want.
Great (by roma_13 on Fri, 03 Apr 2015 13:50:00)
Great App. Have all my books on it. Easier to find books on Kindle iOS App than on iBooks and more choices.
Kindle for iPhone is the best (by Jess1357864 on Fri, 03 Apr 2015 09:49:00)
So easy to use and keep track of my library! Love the copy feature so I can research whatever a particular book is talking about easily.
Great! (by NWChris1109 on Fri, 03 Apr 2015 06:13:00)
Very happy with the Kindle app. I still use my dedicated kindle but usually only when I am traveling and want to save the battery on my phone. The iOS app is good enough that most of the time the reader sits unused.
Wimpy Dictionary! (by AuthorDixieSwanson on Fri, 03 Apr 2015 03:59:00)
Love the Kindle app except for unreadable dictionary. I also looked up a French word. Would I like to download a French dictionary? Yes, please. Et voila! Up popped the definition of the word in question in, what else? FRENCH! Silly me... Would appreciate a French/English dictionary, but would be ecstatic to just have a readable dictionary. Maybe in the next update? Please ?
Kindle (by Cheryl's iPhone 5 on Fri, 03 Apr 2015 02:33:00)
Great app. It would be 5* if I could access the kindle store from the app.
Even better than the device (by IrkDaRed on Thu, 02 Apr 2015 15:13:00)
Granted my exposure to the device is limited to First Gen Fire and prior. But, compared to them, the Kindle App for iPad rocks.
iBooks still seems better (by freshpowdr on Thu, 02 Apr 2015 15:11:00)
There are some missing features here that it would be nice to have: -chapter progress indicator (currently only shows book progress), -auto night theme would be nice, -plus auto location syncing between devices(it sort of syncs now, but asks first before taking you to the new point. Seems like it could skip that.) On the plus side, though, this app allows access to library books, which is good.
Book lover (by Amvdell on Thu, 02 Apr 2015 13:40:00)
Love this app. I can read anywhere. Never any problems. Thanks kindle!!!!
👍Mucho mejor .. (by Dafne77 on Thu, 02 Apr 2015 11:19:00)
muchos mejor que las versiones anteriores, muy buena para leer, marcar, subrayar, resaltar etc. en una lectura... lo único que le falta a esta versión es en modo de encontrar la misma palabra en en texto ( como ocurre con ebook)
Kindle is great! (by Kapara77 on Thu, 02 Apr 2015 10:44:00)
This is a great app. I use it on the daily basis. It's very user friendly and I love it!
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 101th to 150th
the best way to read (by mortyl on Thu, 02 Apr 2015 04:57:00)
I've loved books, books I could hold, for my whole life. I have at least a thousand on book shelves in my home. And I love spending time in book stores, exploring the books I unexpectedly find as I wander around. But for several years now I've read almost all my books on my Kindle App on my iPad. I can always carry several books. Reading on my iPad 4 is so much easier than having to hold a 300-400 pages book. MY wife reads on a Kindle; I read on my iPad and we both love it.
Love it! (by Krismichelle on Thu, 02 Apr 2015 04:56:00)
I love kindle! I am enjoying reading so much more now.
Skip this app if you have a kindle (by Revenge bunny on Thu, 02 Apr 2015 04:19:00)
Every time I open this app it loads longer than I have patience for. It's also half as functional as my 4-5 year old kindle.
Perfect (by Jvbike on Wed, 01 Apr 2015 22:16:00)
This app works great on my iPad and I really like the way it syncs with my other kindle.
Works great (by Tackymiri on Wed, 01 Apr 2015 18:52:00)
I enjoy reading books and now I can do it here.
Best eBook Application (by under toad on Wed, 01 Apr 2015 18:48:00)
Stable, reliable, and easy to use. For me, that covers everything.
Great app (by ammn415 on Wed, 01 Apr 2015 15:59:00)
Love being able to jump between my kindle and the iPhone, without ever losing my place!
Love and use this app daily! (by Kristopherwhat on Wed, 01 Apr 2015 15:30:00)
Love having all my books on my iPhone!
Pretty good (by toddgrieger11 on Wed, 01 Apr 2015 13:20:00)
I've been using this app to read books for a while and it's great. I started using the nook app in the only thing that I miss for that is the ability to stack your books in a certain series for easy accessibility and organization other than that it's great
Reading app (by cartaufalous on Wed, 01 Apr 2015 04:20:00)
Good interface and easy to use. The selection of available books is decent too. Unfortunately, DRM and greed mar the app. Why do digital downloads cost more than paper books? Why does the app constantly blank out while it reconnects to the Internet and "reauthorizes" your book? Why can't you copy or resell the digital books you've paid so much money for? So, it could be a lot better.
Needs more options (by Isisshae27 on Wed, 01 Apr 2015 03:52:00)
I want to start out by saying this is my favorite way to read books. It would be nice if there was an option for different colored text. White is close to ultraviolet that keeps a person awake, when a red text is on the opposite side of the light spectrum allowing the reader to fall asleep easier at bed time. Black background with red text would be amazing, and it is a simple script fix!
Big disappointment! (by moses channels on Wed, 01 Apr 2015 00:42:00)
Do not buy this app or sign up for Kindle for any reason! They lose your books, there is no pagination often, they do not help you when you need help. I could go on and on about how terrible their services are.
App hasn't progressed (by AZDale on Tue, 31 Mar 2015 21:00:00)
Yes you can read a book, and do a few things inside a single book and that's value, but that's about all. Collections only work on some platforms, and when in a collection can't sort or do anything else you would expect. Biggest issue is that as you get more books it's impossible to organize them. They really need something like smart tags where collections are updated as you add material with a new tag, or change tags. Once you get over a few books the whole thing is a mess to keep organized or find anything. It's odd since libraries were always about categorizing and allowing search, and the electronic library Amazon has built is even dumber than most paper ones regarding organization. The more stuff you buy the worse it gets. You would think Amazon could figure that out.

My Any Where Any Time App!!! (by R D Traveler on Tue, 31 Mar 2015 10:59:00)
So convenient! I download books from the library to my iPod and Surface so I can read from either (or of course my Kindle). Synchronization is perfect on all devices. I always have a "book" with me now!!
Can't live without it (by Thomkh on Tue, 31 Mar 2015 06:26:00)
I have no idea how I managed for so many years without it but, Kindle makes it so easy to have your library at you finger tips. Traveling with multiple books doesn't require another piece of luggage anymore. A must for any avid reader.
Great App for my Mini IPad (by Gary Chomiak on Tue, 31 Mar 2015 06:15:00)
I use this app for all my digital book purchases. I especially like the audio feature, so I can listen to the book while driving or if I'm too tired to read.
Great app (by Class&Sophistication on Tue, 31 Mar 2015 01:07:00)
Convenient, easy to use. Love it on my iPad! Easy access and sync from Amazon. I'm a reader, love to click on my app, browse through my selection of books or download a book from Amazon that's syncs in seconds to read.
Great app (by Cb3llz on Mon, 30 Mar 2015 22:45:00)
Love this. Let's me read on the toilet
Love My Kindle App (by TriviaManiac on Mon, 30 Mar 2015 18:17:00)
I am an avid reader but found that storing all of my books was a problem. Now I read all my books on the Kindle app using my iPad. Most books are cheaper, it saves trees, and no storage issues. I also am able to borrow books electronically from my library and read in the kindle app. Things I like about the app -- 1) ease in changing font size 2) ability to see 'real' page number (this helps in book discussions where some are reading printed version) 3) ability to sync book to other devices... Allowing me to read using my iPhone when I'm waiting in lines or doctor offices
Kindle (by Norm's wife on Mon, 30 Mar 2015 16:12:00)
I love my Kindle! I've had it for 7 years and I take it everywhere I go.
Disappointment for iPad users (by Winter mom on Mon, 30 Mar 2015 15:32:00)
I have been using the Kindle app with iPad and iPhone for years, the most recent update leaves Apple users unable to purchase or download directly from the app, therefore greatly diminishing its ease of use. Guess I'll use iBooks for every purchase, now.
I love this app! (by Snowjam on Mon, 30 Mar 2015 13:54:00)
I really thoroughly enjoy my kindle app. I'm always reading books wherever I go now, whether I'm on break and want to read a book while I eat, or when I'm walking to the bathroom, or whenever really. It has enabled me to read books all the time, and still have the time for other things. The only thing I wish to change, would be where I could purchase ebooks through this app. It's a pain to go the website and buy a book and then go back to my app. Why not just let me buy using the app, and start reading immediately after one click buy?
Kindle app - Book Extras feature not working (by Gfw52 on Mon, 30 Mar 2015 13:38:00)
A terrific app. There was an issue with Book Extras not working, but the Amazon team has corrected that. Thank you, for making this app one of the best!
Favorite reading app! (by Okbioteach on Mon, 30 Mar 2015 11:20:00)
Just love the Kindle app! Only wish that I was able to sort or categorize the books in my library...

NEEDS ORGANIZING ABILITY (by Sue from p'ton on Sun, 29 Mar 2015 22:31:00)
Today's update (3/29/15) is a mess for both iPad and iPhone. Finally went to Amazon Manage Devices and Content to download a new book to iPad. On iPhone I kept getting "new" opportunity to download—when that is exactly what I'd selected as soon as I purchased the book. Why I was sent to another page, that after several attempts finally informed me that "The download is taking longer than expected," is unclear. This isn't an improvement. I love reading books on my iPad, and do so daily. I would love the app more if I could organize my books into collections, as I can do on my Kindle.
Adore Kindle (by 2DoxieMama on Sun, 29 Mar 2015 20:30:00)
Thanks to Kindle I am reading more & more books in many different forms. I love being able to sort, being able to read my actual borrowed Library books on Kindle, now being able to synch with Goodreads - I'm able to gift books to my grandchildren and share books with my friends. Keep it up!
Reading a lot more now (by Beer up on Sun, 29 Mar 2015 17:21:00)
Had app on iPod for a while but didn't use it much. Still went to the library to borrow hard copy book. Once, I downloaded the app on the iPhone, I started reading a lot more--borrowing ebooks from library & reading them everywhere--breaks @ wk, while waiting 4 car inspection, whatever. Now hv a book downloaded all the time, usually w/a couple in queue.
Are there no proofreaders left? (by skycowboy on Sun, 29 Mar 2015 16:54:00)
I love this app. I have read dozens of books, fiction and non-, and love the portability and ease of use. But, geez, some of these authors or publishers need to get a handle on typos, out-of-context spellcheck errors, glaring errors in punctuation, etc. These things can be jarring (and aggravating), disrupting the flow that I am sure the authors were intending. Just because it is electronic doesn't mean it can be slipshod.
Excellent! (by efrenguti on Sun, 29 Mar 2015 13:01:00)
I had read any books with it.
Good app (by Sal670 on Sun, 29 Mar 2015 12:04:00)
Synchs across devices, dictionary works well, footnote function could function more consistently.
Terrible font in dictionary window (by suecqueue on Sun, 29 Mar 2015 07:17:00)
I had to knock this down to three stars from five due to the nasty change to the font used in the pop-up dictionary definition. The definition is now in a tiny molecule thin font that is gray instead of black. Dumb, thoughtless change for no reason whatsoever. Please fix this so Kindle can go back to being the best iOS reading app. Just so you know, light gray text on a white background isn't cool anymore. In fact, it never was cool, and the company that tried to make it cool had to do an emergency OS update to get rid of it when millions of users raised a ruckus bout it.
Love it (by Mr. Wick 2 on Sun, 29 Mar 2015 03:18:00)
The app works great. There are plenty of places I wouldn't want to bring my kindle but my phone comes with everywhere!
New problem needs attention (by ::miche124:: on Sun, 29 Mar 2015 01:16:00)
I love this app, but since the most recent update the dictionary definition has changed to a different, very light font that is unreadable on my iPad Mini. Because I use the app so much, this issue has become especially problematic. One of the reasons I buy Kindle books is the onboard dictionary. I also wish this app made it easier to browse and buy Kindle books from within the app. Once the dictionary is fixed, I will return to update this review to 5 stars.
It lets me read (by Overcusser on Sat, 28 Mar 2015 19:59:00)
Not much to say, I can read my kindle books on my phone. It does have some limitations however.
Very Limited App (by Job.3 on Sat, 28 Mar 2015 14:53:00)
Kindle and eBooks had great promise but have chosen to deliver very little. How is it possible that you can not even sort your books by subject matter? Why are maps so bad in history books? I have given up on eBooks-newspapers-the publishers who put money and effort into their online versions are worth buying. But Amazon and the book publishers have seemed to adopt a business model of provide as little as possible at at high cost.
GREAT WAy TO READ BOOKS!!!! (by afle_5614 on Sat, 28 Mar 2015 14:20:00)
Ever since I got my kindle app I have been to the library since. It has all the books I want to read and more.
One of my favorites (by pforte68 on Sat, 28 Mar 2015 13:49:00)
I really love this app. I just wish for a few features. The black back lighting at night (iBooks has it) and a way to sort my books by read or not. I have hundreds of books in my library and it becomes daunting to search thru it all and remember what I read or not. Plus my kids have books on there too so if becomes that much harder. I think that is more a Kindle issue than an app issue but I thought it worth mentioning. I'm starting to leave a running list of books I've read, but it would be nice to have it in the kindle app as opposed to somewhere else.

Awesome! (by The Phamily on Sat, 28 Mar 2015 05:22:00)
Not sure how the real Kindle reader is but this app is nothing short of.. Functionality is straightforward. Easy to use and downloads are a breeze. Syncing with other devices like the iPhone is automatic which is nice when I constant switch back and forth between the iPad and the iPhone. The dictionary works well and other tools like highlighting and tabs are just a touch away. Nice!
Awesome (by TopWebComics on Sat, 28 Mar 2015 02:38:00)

Yes it's almost perfect but... (by Michvp on Fri, 27 Mar 2015 23:25:00)
Are the price for books a secret !? When browsing for new books I don't know how much I'm paying for it! To me that is a huge flaw no one is talking about. That's why I will minus 2 stars.

Love my Kindle app!! (by TMBG44 on Fri, 27 Mar 2015 20:19:00)
I use it daily. I have always had a book in my hands to read and thought I'd never like reading on my phone or tablet, but I love it! And I find lots of free books through the Amazon Kindle store by authors I probably would not have read if they were not free. I love the free book then I don't mind buying the next one. I am always recommending the Kindle app. Thank you!
Kindle Review (by rtb220 on Fri, 27 Mar 2015 15:15:00)
I purchased the Kindle after trying to read on my iPad outside. The Kindle is easy to read outside in the bright sunlight. I do like that fact that I can read Kindle books on the iPad inside because the page is bigger. I wish my library had more ebook titles available.

It is very easy to store books and retrieve worthwhile books after they have been read
Kindle App (by trublentx on Fri, 27 Mar 2015 04:10:00)
Over all, this app is convenient and easy to use. Aside from the ease of use, it is also available across multiple platforms. The downside of this app is that not all books keep their accurate page per page numbering. This is inconvenient with regards to text books/ study materials. This has been the only down side of using this app. If page by page is not important for your needs, this app is perfect to use.
Invaluable Tool (by Techchick50 on Fri, 27 Mar 2015 03:44:00)
My preference is to read books on my kindle app.
Best app for digital books (by BookReader&GamePlayer on Fri, 27 Mar 2015 03:26:00)
The kindle app is perfect. It links up with audible for any audio books you may have in addition to the digital print version. If the amount of money spent on books and time spent using the app is any indication, then this is the best app in the world. If you enjoy reading. Then this is the iTunes for books. But better.
No Kindle Store (by Dudewhoisarealmusician on Thu, 26 Mar 2015 22:30:00)
It really bothers me that you cannot purchase books on the app anymore. I don't know why this feature was removed because it was very useful

It is so nice to have 100's of books in the palm of your hand. I love holding a book and turning the pages, but having a whole library in your purse or pocket? Outstanding!
For everyone (by Joann8193 on Wed, 25 Mar 2015 01:58:00)
No complaints. Serves the purpose. Syncs across devices.
My favorite reading app (by 1Skywatcher1 on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 21:27:00)
Kindle is my favorite reading app. Downloading books is very simple. I'm even able to borrow them through my library. Reading is intuitive and comfortable...even to the "turning" of virtual pages.
Kindle (by Jwr1952 on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 19:39:00)
Best way to read period. Old man who does not like new things most of the time. Kindle has moved me kicking and reading into the new century. Thanks for a great product.
Great App (by Goldyprincess on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 17:27:00)
I can't tell you how many books I've read on many different devices. I've never had a problem.
Reader to go! (by MamaShane on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 16:57:00)
On my iPhone, love it. Going flying soon, that will be the test of functionality. Stay tuned!
Great app (by BooCoat on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 15:54:00)
One of my favorite apps. It's especially great for traveling - sure beats carrying several books. Keep ip the good work!
Kindle is the best. (by Maydae503 on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:59:00)
Like having a library in your pocket.
I love my Kindle app (by JerryMac84 on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 12:38:00)
I love the handiness of being able to access all my Kindle books on my iPhone and iPad. If I'm stuck waiting somewhere I can get pick up exactly where I left off in the latest page turner. I love that, even though I do, we don't even have to own a Kindle but can use the app to read any book we purchase via Kindle store on Amazon.
Fabulous (by bigsisl on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 09:48:00)
Had a Kindle, love the iPad version.got great customer service trying to coordinate 2 iPads, a family plan, and reading on iPhone.
Love this app (by Eddieburnes15 on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 08:20:00)
I love this app so much! I want a big fan of Ebooks until I bought red queen and I absolutely love it. I love how you don't have to go out and buy hard copies (which I still like) but I have no room for hard copies. I'm always near my phone so it's convenient for when I wanna read.
Won't sync (by Lyndimari on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 06:13:00)
The app was great until this update. Now it won't sync so I can't download my purchased books.
Can't live without! (by Kankele on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 06:00:00)
I fought long and hard against getting an electronic reading app. What was I thinking? I'm so addicted, I've been slowly (sometimes not so slowly) converting my most cherished books to ebooks, so I can literally take them where ever I go. Thank you Amazon.
Great app for reading (by ,,.....,.,..l on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 05:47:00)
Great app easy to read books on it and it doesn't freeze like iBooks does sometimes
Good app, but... (by T Glockner on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 04:42:00)
Good app, but when one has numerous books there's no synopsis! A real pain to have to go online to read one. TG
Functional (by Fred6795 on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 03:58:00)
But not as easy to use or with the features as iBooks.
Perfect (by Alpine23 on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 03:38:00)
Works flawlessly and easy to use. Thanks
Almost perfect BUT... (by Ogriffy on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 03:25:00)
I absolutely love all things Amazon Kindle, it is one of my favorite apps on my phone. The iPhone app has greatly improved since the last time I used an iPhone with the ability to search for books now built in...but for heaven's sake please add in app purchases!! I feel bad even rating the app lower for this as I'm positive it's not Amazon's fault but just Apple being scummy and trying to make it easier to use iBooks. Not happening Cook!
Can't read dictionary definitions (by Giabella333 on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 01:53:00)
For some reason now when I click on a word to see it's meaning, the word and sentence it is used in are black, the definition is white and I can barely read it. There is no option to change this. It's annoying.
Kindle makes information and entertainment readily available. (by MrMetaperson on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 00:49:00)
I like Kindle because it allows me to access books I want to read and gives me a place to keep those books. Thank you, Kindle. Steven Blue
One of the most useful iOS apps (by Pfalcon07 on Tue, 24 Mar 2015 00:46:00)
I never have enough time to read as much as I want. This app makes it very easy to read while waiting in line and under similar circumstances. A convenient, stable app.
X-Ray (by Ames Bond on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 22:36:00)
The xray on my latest 2 books don't show as much info as the last 2 books in the series. Sometimes punctuation is missing also. I wish that I could edit the xray info. I would like to be able to add notes about what characters look like etc.
Love my Kindle App! (by Deigh2013 on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 19:49:00)
It is wonderful to have my Kindle books on my phone so that I can read anywhere, anytime, unexpectedly!
awesome (by pappijoe on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 19:40:00)
got as gift . never thought i would use it. now cant live without it. luv the dictionary look up feature. and ability to read on pc and iphone. and borrow from library!!! just awesome!!!
Kindle reader app (by 51Illusions on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 17:13:00)
User friendly on an iPhone. Would have liked a 1 or 2 page introduction to the features and how to use them instead of "which are obvious" and "guess what the others are and how they can make the most of the app!" Really annoying when it is the first e-reader app to which one is exposed.
Fun app to use (by Awake&up on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 16:53:00)
Like a library and great to use !!!!
Sufficient. But could be great with a couple tweaks. (by Any effin nickname on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 15:22:00)
The Kindle App is sufficient. It enables you to read a book. There are several reader apps out there and one is no different than the others. However, with a couple minor tweaks, the Kindle App could be GREAT! First, I would love the ability to attach a note to the icon of a book. Very similar to attaching a memo to a cell in Excel, with the little red dot in the corner of the book icon included. I would love to be able to note whether I need to look for more books by this author; whether the book is part of a series; a reminder of what the series is about, etc. I read so many books that this would be invaluable to me. I know about Good Reads and Shelfari, but it would just be nice to be able to add a quick note/reminder without having to sign into a secondary app. It would also be awesome if I could authorize Amazon to automatically purchase any books from a particular author for me; even if it's limited to a period of time (a year or two). I come across new authors that I enjoy and would like to read more of, but due to the number of books I read, I end up losing track of them or forgetting to check back to see if they've released any more books. It would be great to be able to "tag" an author and just have Amazon automatically send me their newest book when it is published, instead of having to go in and preorder each new book individually. I realize this is more of an Amazon issue, but giving me the capability to do this from the Kindle App would be amazing.
Convenience (by Dr Tammy on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 14:20:00)
Love the convenience of being able to read with my Kindle app when I don't have my Kindle with me. With the syncing feature I can read right where I left off with my other device.
Love Kindle (by Superpilgram on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 13:15:00)
The Kindle app is great! I love how it instantly gives me the option to take me where I left off in my book on another device. If my Kindle isn't nearby but my phone is, I can pick right up where left off in my book. What a wonderful free app!
Great reading app! (by Señor Sammael on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 06:49:00)
I use it daily as my default reading app.
Used to be my fave app (by Tatermom2302 on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 06:18:00)
Use the app ALL the time. Used to be my fave app but am SO tired of DELETING BOOKS FROM MY DEVICE THAT KEEP COMING BACK EVERY TIME I OPEN THE APP! GRRRR....Even tried deleting them from my library on Amazon.com. NO SUCH LUCK :(

Kindle, why did you? (by Huntja on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 03:30:00)
I love kindle but on my iPad mini, I hate that it tries to be fancy when in landscape mode. If you must have the two page split, please bring back the feature that lets me turn that off and just lets me have a single page. You used to allow this. Why change a feature you already completed. Maybe your statistics don't show a lot of use, but for those like me, it stops me from reading on that device as often.
Good App (by javalord on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 02:24:00)
I love the feel of a book in my hands. The heft and pleasure of turning pages is sweet. And gradually, I've come to enjoy my Kindle iPad app the same way. Now, I take all 70 books with me, to read and re-read. Different, but good in its own unique way.
Love it! (by Lmc168 on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 00:36:00)
Great app to read all of my books.
Love this! (by Zbusdriver on Mon, 23 Mar 2015 00:05:00)
This has to be my favorite app. My books are there all the time.
Dictionary (by MX882 not detect on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 22:51:00)
Definition's font is not clearly readable. Definition Text is too light, but example is dark enough to read Customer support did not help to improve the font. So you need to use "full definition" to see details. Wiki and translator are good font size.
Love, love, love my Kindle App on my iPad! (by Nurse Sammy on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 21:01:00)
I almost didn't buy an iPad because I didn't think I could get the Kindle books. But I got the best of both worlds by downloading the Kindle App onto my iPad. I just love them both. The App is excellent!
Love it (by MarthaJaneB on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 20:31:00)

I am truly happy with the Kindle app. I use it everyday, don't want to ever be without it. I would like to see more free books .
Useful (by Starr2425 on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 18:32:00)
I like the app on my iPad and my iPhone.
Kindle needs spritz capability (by Meh01111111 on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 17:55:00)
The e-reader itself is fine, but doesn't have an interface with the audio counterparts such as Audible purchases(which should be done) nor any Spritz functionality. Once I make a purchase, the digital rights are mine supposedly, yet it's frustrating that this is the only platform that I can use in this paradigm, which does not enable an easy method to share my content with others.
Kindle App (by Gramcher on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 16:43:00)
One of the easier reading apps because of the ability to put books in collections. By genre, author or series.
Love (by KerinL on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 15:57:00)
I love my kindle and the kindle app for I Phone. It automatically sync's with my kindle and allows me to read anywhere and at anytime. I am no longer aggravated when I am forced to wait anywhere. I only wish the dictionary fully functioned.
Kindle app on iPhone (by McCradle on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 07:39:00)
Love it especially at night when my husband is asleep CND I can't sleep so I read on the first thing I can grab.. My iPhone.

Nice Speech Output Functionality For Visually Impaired, But Room For Improvement (by BlindMBA on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 04:04:00)
Kindle for iOS is much more accessible to blind readers than any other other edition of Kindle had been previously. But it's utility still leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to those who would prefer reading in refresh able Braille via a Bluetooth-enabled Braille display alone. This is because a blind user cannot customize the advancement from one page to the next. On AppleVis forums others have expressed the same frustration. Yes, the menu does contain a picker function that let's me swipe from one location to another. But it's far too sensitive--going from Page 4 to Page 49 in the Kindle book I'm currently reading and not even allowing me to go back to any point in between. The Kindle app menu also contains an edit box into which one can supposedly type a desired page number. For a VoiceOver user, though, this is only theoretical; I couldn't find any place on the screen to enter a page number. The Page Chooser in iBooks is heavenly by comparison.
A Marriage Saver! (by Shilohmom on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 03:27:00)
Reading in bed, while my husband snores peacefully next to me, is easy with Kindle! No more turning noisy pages, or fumbling with book lights. I can dim the backlight, and read til midnight without disturbing him. I love my Kindle app!
Absolutely my favorite reading app!! (by EvansGirl24 on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 02:44:00)
Love the kindle app! It's definitely my favorite for reading on my iPhone and iPad. Also wonderful because it can be read on any platform. It has some very nice customization features and just seems to always work properly and sync perfectly and immediately! I have not yet found a book cheaper from one of the other online retailers. And I can import my own books and PDF files to read. Fabulous job Amazon!
Enjoy reading on Kindle (by Goldfinch22 on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 02:05:00)
The Kindle app makes having a book in hand so easy and portable. I always take my iPad full of books wherever I go - so convenient.

I have an actual Kindle gathering dust somewhere. I love the app! After all, we always have our phones, don't we? I wouldn't want to live without it!
Excellent (by ** Bev** on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 00:54:00)
Kindle has made my passion for reading a much easier process. Kindle Unlimited has provided titles at a flat rate per month. This is a win-win situation for me.
I love this app!!!😃😍 (by Girl gymnast is cool on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 00:51:00)
This app is awesome and easy to use! I'd definitely give it 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
So Awesome (by RVTNM on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 23:01:00)
The Kindle App makes it so easy to share books with my husband. It's also great to buy an E book and have it downloaded right to our library.
I Read More (by BMW330XI on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 21:36:00)
I read a lot more now that I've downloaded the Kindle app.
Kindle App (by Da_Big_G on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 21:32:00)
Overall nice, but it needs a way to better organize books that have been read & not read. Also should be able to sort by series so it is easy to see which books have been purchased.
Love kindle (by Seabbott on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 21:32:00)
Would rather read than eat. Kindle gives me the chance to read forever
Just one thing (by stitcher3 on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 20:36:00)
Love the app. Especially option of picking up reading same book across devices at a different spot. However, it's very frustrating that book has to reload every time I leave the app, even for a second. I don't know if anything can be done about this, but five stars for sure if you can!
Awesome app (by Pimpi96 on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 20:35:00)

The Best Reader (by Bead_Lady on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 16:44:00)
I LOVE my Kindle. I take it everywhere with me. Carrying around over 30 books is such an awesome experience. Carting around movies and videos too and having it all in one place is incredible. I'm on my sixth Kindle and encouraging other who are thinking about a reader to get a Kindle!
Favorite app (by LWD9 on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 14:59:00)
I just love this app. I've been able to read more books in short order because of the easy manner to get more books.
Library in my hand (by Sheli Smith on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 14:58:00)
It is remarkable to have a whole library at my fingertips. I have used the Kindle app for years and now with Kindle Unlimited I am never without something to read. Thank you
Kindle app (by Granky2 on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 12:33:00)

Probably bad for my eyes but love it (by Paginab on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 08:10:00)
I've been reading tons of books on my iPhone with the Kindle app. It's probably bad for my eyes but I love that I can have all my books in a tiny device that I carry all the time anyway, and that I can read in bed after my husband falls asleep (and it doesn't bother him). I alas sometimes pick up the same book (where I left off on my phone) on the iPad or even my desktop. Great interface.
Great app (by Rosebud345 on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 07:17:00)

Kindle App almost nails it (by Chub_jr on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 04:51:00)
I enjoy reading books with the kindle app and on my kindle. My only gripe is that it is sometimes hard to purchase books, it's not always possible to buy it through the kindle or amazon app which can be a bit frustrating, other than that, I love it.
Like the idea on my 3rd (by Suzi1203 on Sat, 21 Mar 2015 04:24:00)

Kindle make me possible to read my favorite books literally anytime anywhere. But why did you guys deemed the color of the definitions of your dictionary? I CANNOT read the definitions anymore. You know the font size of the dictionary is fixed. Would you please make them darker, like before, and I, who is having hard enough time reading because I have to wear my reading glasses, can keep enjoying reading? I would have given you full five stars if the dictionary were just like before. Please?
Brighter please (by Chippy Wadsworth on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 21:13:00)

Great ap (by Vegas 53 on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 20:08:00)
The Kindle ap that I have on my iPad works just great. I can go back and forth between my Kindle Fire and the iPad with no trouble. I've added the ap to my iPhone 6 so that I'll have three option to read me Kindle books.
My most used app (by chobeeite on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 19:57:00)
I spend hours every day reading on my phone or my iPad with the great kindle selections of books. A real money saver and I'm rarely disappointed in my selections. If some book looks or sounds good to me, my next thing is to check the feedback. I also like to go between my devices when my battery is getting low and Kindle takes me to the page I was reading. I can read anywhere even if I'm not in range of wifi or a tower.
Love the Kindle Ap (by wajdb on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 18:05:00)

Love this app! I used to spend a small fortune buying books, then either store or donate. If I wasn't buying, it was trip after trip to the library to find another book in a series. Not anymore. Yes, I still buy books, but a fraction of the cost or free!

The kindle app is great! (by jaywootoo on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 15:04:00)
For an avid reader, there's nothing like having your entire library at your fingertips! The app syncs across multiple devices, like my iPhone to my iPad every time it opens. So no matter which I'm reading from, I'm always at the page I left off. No need for bookmarks, though you have those to if you like. I highly recommend this app for anyone that likes to catch a chapter or two while at lunch, or waiting somewhere like a doctors office right on your phone.
I really enjoy reading my Kindle (by rdoliver on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 15:03:00)

Not the best (by Disappointed Crystal on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 14:56:00)
I have several book apps, but this is the only one that gives "location" instead of page numbers which is very annoying. I've also been having trouble with it freezing so I can't turn pages and I have to turn it off and back on.
Kindle App (by Freakyknitter on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 14:44:00)

I love it (by Barbie McNeil on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 13:06:00)
I love my kindle, I have it on my phone and iPad mini and I can read the same book on either and not have to find where I was on then because of the syncing process. My husband is happy because we don't have all theses books laying or staking up anymore.
Pretty happy with it! (by Ilovespinach on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 09:21:00)
I like it. I haven't had any major problems with it. It's user-friendly - especially on a tablet. Price and selection of books is impressive, and I really appreciate the ease of downloading.
Favorite App (by Bradshaws86 on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 09:09:00)

Justified text (by maxfenton on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 05:14:00)
I can't believe it’s 2015 and I still can't read a Kindle book without the text being fully justified. Left-align the words, please. Kobo can do that. Marvin can do that. Stanza could do that before you axed it.
Keeps Improving (by Buderflye on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 04:51:00)
I have an iPad, an iPhone and a Kindle Touch. I often need to use the Kindle Touch because I get headaches from the light. But the iOS app is often better than the Kindle Touch. The notes are easier to navigate and of course with the color I can get magazines & see book covers. It's great to have my Kindle library on my iPhone, which goes with me everywhere. Sometimes I have difficulty getting the three devices to sync.
Love it! (by Jessimdlc on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 04:17:00)
My Kindle app makes me happy because I can read my library downloads with ease on my iPhone and iPad!
Great app (by paul132 on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 03:58:00)
I presently have an Apple iPad and love this program. Though I still purchase some hard copy books, this app allows me to keep a large number of books to read at my fingertips.
Great App (by Pmcpatty on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 03:12:00)
I use my IPad Kindle App everyday. Love the fact that I can change the screen to Night so that I can read in bed and not disturb my melatonin balance with a bright blue screen so I can sleep. Changing the font size makes reading so much easier if I forget my bifocals. My only issue is that I'd like to be able to organize my books better.
Love this app! (by Xoey on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 02:58:00)
It is so wonderful being able to have 1000's of books right at my fingertips at any given time! I've always loved reading but carrying large bulky books around have always been a pain, now I don't even need to "choose" my book when I leave the house because I have them all with me! I've had no real problems with the app since last update so I'm happy.
Love this app (by TRedd351 on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 02:48:00)
I was a major iBooks only kinda guy and then ran into this app. Great asset to have as a reader. Still learning bits and pieces of it. Hey, I might even get a Kindle someday. Good work Kindle team. Tom
Love my Kindle (by Lilp1 on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 02:34:00)
My Kindle is my most used app I have, I never get bored cause I can just pull up my Kindle App and read my life away. I would recommend a Kindle to any reader.
Love It (by Guitar Al The Eternal Searcher on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 02:28:00)
Great app. My library can travel with me. It is well executed. I love the sync feature because I read on three different devices.
Kindle app love it (by Hillinc on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 02:26:00)
I use this every day. I travel a lot for work and I can take a ton of books with me and read whatever strikes my fancy at the time. Not stuck with just one book that's in my suitcase.

Kindle App (by Green Rainbows on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 15:22:00)
I just started using this app. I always have a book on hand. It's GREAT!! I would recommend this app to everyone.
Amazing!! (by Doodlenoodle55 on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 15:21:00)
If you ever wanted to read any book choose Amazon Kindle! The only fault with the app is that when you go onto the store in the app you can only get samples.
Best App! (by Gulf Breeze Kim on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 14:25:00)
Books at your fingertips any time you want them. Can get notice of upcoming publications and pre buy and app keeps track for you and delivers them. For someone who loves to read, it's a necessity.
Fantastic! (by Me2luvy on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 13:47:00)
The kindle app is great. I've used it for reading books, saving documents, and opening PDFs. Having access to my documents on the device and in the cloud has been wonderful. Having the app on my phone also means I've put down my actual kindle in favor of the app.
Kindle app (by Kindy Kindle on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 13:37:00)
I LOVE IT! Always have my phone so I can read anytime I want. Also, when my grandchildren are sick I can rock them for hours & read at the same time! Could not do that with a book! It would be too hard to hold and turn pages
Absolutely Amazing! (by KimMaess11 on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 13:34:00)
this is my first time using the kindle app and I didn't thought it's gonna be like this! It's mind blowing! I tried a lot of books app but never like this. Kindle has a lot to offer and much more affordable. I really recommend this for bookworms out there who hasn't tried the kindle yet :)
Easy to use and great functionality (by Exxxtreme333 on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 11:54:00)
Need I say more? Get it. Use it. Love it.
Love the Kindle App! (by bluesnrocrul on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 11:24:00)
So glad I can read books from Amazon on my iPad after my husband liked my Kindle so much he started using it all the time. Especially like being able to look up the definition of words and idioms so easily.
Like the app! (by Kbgtam5 on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 11:10:00)
The app is great just wish could use the kindle store!
Can't live without it... (by caitfahy on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 11:08:00)
The kindle app is my most used app. I am able to read my books anywhere. I also love that I can get tons and tons of books at discounted prices from Amazon.
Great app (by Katya1_cat on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 05:32:00)

Fantastic (by smolock on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 03:22:00)
One of the greatest inventions ever!!! I love using kindle, I have it on all my devices, including two cell phones, 3 tablets and my PC. I really like the fact that it syncs across all devices and it makes reading a lot easier since you don't have to walk around with a load of books
Kindle app (by Rinkles1 on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 03:11:00)
Very convenient and user friendly. If, in error, you order a duplicate copy, Kindle will let you know. Easy to find and choose books
Love my kindle app (by Mommynurse4 on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 02:55:00)
I use this app more than all my other apps. I love to have my books readily available. I love the collections feature.
My most used app (by Stargeezer70 on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 02:43:00)
I can be any where on vacation and can have a few books on my iPad and when finished reading them all can download more books. The built in dictionary is so easy to use and enhances the understanding of the story.
The Kindle app is superb (by Iambetsy on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 02:33:00)
I have a Kindle reader, a Kindle fire, an iPad, and a PC. I use all of them frequently thanks to this app. I am addicted to e-books. Thanks Amazon.

Fantastic app and one I use most often!! I can read on my Kindle Fire and I can also read on my iPhone when I'm waiting in line at the post office or grocery store!
A Lifesaver! (by shellyinhico on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 01:47:00)
I use the iPad Kindle app daily. Over the years the accumulation of books can become unwieldy. Piles and piles then lugging them around. I can not be without books! Several years I had to pay extra on vacation flights because of packing 10 books!😎 At the beginning of the e-book explosion I was not a fan, but I gave it a go anyway. Now I am an addict! Is I've grown older it is so great to be able to change font sizes and most of all a black page with white letters! It really cuts down on the eye strain! I can not emphasize my love for all e-books!
Great app. (by Shantia on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 01:46:00)
I've always been a fan of Kindle and Amazon. This app works great and I've never had a problem with it.
KindleLand (by Where-O-Where on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 01:41:00)
It took me one book to forget I wasn't reading a physical book. Now I really like it. I do wish there were more options for organizing books - like when I download a new one, it ends up some place in the middle of all my books, and I have to go looking through them to find it. If I'm downloading more than one, I often forget the exact name and can't do a search.
Convenient (by JANKkids on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 01:36:00)
Love it's convenience but still needs to go to website for detail reviewing and purchase. Would luv it even more if it had ways for not showing everything on one's cloud given that it can have varied items from kids stuff to adult stuff, making it more family sharing friendly.
What would I do without my Kindle? (by Alder37 on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 01:26:00)
Great app. Easy to sync between devices. Haven't had any crashes or glitches. Enjoy the different setting to customize reading mode.
Kindle vs. Hard Copy (by aatwin1 on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 01:24:00)
I am an avid reader and always need to read a book. I have normally wanted to have hard copies of books. However, I find myself getting more and more books on Kindle. It is convenient to have access to them on my iPad and like marking them so I can share passages with people or have a reference for a later date. It is still nice to lend paper books with others but I find there are a lot of books for less than $4.00 making it easy to tell people to purchase it up themselves. Another feature I appreciate is the print size can be adjusted so when my eyes are weak, I can make the print larger. Love the Kindle!!!
Kindle app for iphone (by BigE.Z. on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 00:40:00)
Great app, nice to be able to take my books with me on my iPhone if I'm unable to bring my Kindle tablet.
What happened to Book Extras? (by MISports on Thu, 19 Mar 2015 00:23:00)
This feature has disappeared. I'm surprised since I have used it to find other books by the same author or in a series. It has even disappeared from books that previously had a list. This is not helpful and will cost you sales!
I LOVE Kindle and my Kindle app on IPad (by UdanaPower on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 23:12:00)
I'm a big reader. Love love LOVE to read. I used to love the feel of books and could get intoxicated by being in libraries. I never thought I would like a Kindle...until I got one. !!! It changed my life. I love the convenience, being able to read in the dim light at night in bed and on the treadmill or hanging out in my hammock on a balmy evening when twilight is approaching. I LOVE not having so many books on my shelves...they were moving me out of house and home. Plus...when I'm into a really great series of books and don't want to put it down when I finish a volume in the middle of the night...I just press another button and the next Outlander is ready for me to pick up the story. I LOVE Kindle. Thanks Amazon!
Great app! (by Scott R-H on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 22:25:00)
I love the Kindle app! I carry my iPad with me much of the time, especially when I travel, and it's nice to be able to read quality content without the need to lug around an additional device.
FABULOUS (by Yak135 on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 21:33:00)

Don't miss my books! (by LeCoop13 on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 20:24:00)
I love holding a book in my hand, and I really thought I would miss it. However, I love reading with the kindle app. The pages fly by and it's easy to see because of the contrast. The only thing I don't like is the difficulty in getting out of the book at the end. I don't mind reviewing, but I don't need to share every time I finish a book. I just want to start the next one.
Kindle App is Priceless! (by Yogigirl69 on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 20:22:00)
I got the free Kindle App on my Apple IPad and Desktop Computer. I am so happy that I tried it! I use this app often to buy or request free book samples from Amazon. I am able to store or delete books on Kindle. It is a priceless way to store your library collection of books effortlessly and effectively. Go for it!
Great Help! (by EvaQuaker on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 20:07:00)
Kindle has allowed me to save money and space by allowing me to buy my favorite books whenever I want.
Very Close to excellent (by Great_AZ on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 20:05:00)
Pros: Ability to listen to books by switching to the Audible App and continuing where you left off. Better highlight colors than iBooks. Ability to filter by highlight color (great for note taking). Love the new ability to copy quotes and sections from books to use in preparing teaching lessons. Books sync easily between devices including non Apple devices. Unlike Apple you can move your books from one ID to another ID. I lost a couple hundred dollars in books thanks to Apple's crazy rules. Kindle books often are better graphically and textually formatted than iBooks. Publishers evidentially produce first for the Kindle than convert to iBooks. Book prices are almost always lower with Amazon than Apple. Cons: Unlike the Kindle, text to speech is not available. When you highlight a sentence the footnotes and punctuations are also highlighted. iBooks lets you highlight exactly what you want.
Totally rocks! (by Mitcham97 on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 20:05:00)
Having the Kindle app on all of my mobile devices has totally changed my reading habits. I'm an avid reader, but didn't always want to drag around a 300-500 page novel around with me. I love the convenience, and the ability to page sync from one device to another. I absolutely love Kindle!
Best reading app (by Crizzy2 on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 20:01:00)
I adore the Kindle app. It syncs seamlessly with my Kindle Paperwhite and my Audible app. I love bouncing from device to device and then picking up where I left off by listening in my car.
this app rocks!! (by just keep reading on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 19:37:00)

Love Kindle! (by KStromnes on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 19:09:00)
I absolutely love my kindle and kindle app for my iPhone. I love to read and read a lot. The only issue I have with this app is the fact that I cannot purchase of new book directly from the app. I can only download a sample. I previously had the Samsung Galaxy prior to the iPhone and I also had kindle app on my galaxy. From that app you were able to purchase books. That's my only issue. Otherwise I love it. It's easy to search and download books.
Kindle on phone (by Kdurrer on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 18:14:00)
This is one of my favorite apps that I use nearly everyday. There have been next to zero sync issues with my Kindle Fire that I read at home. I can read on my phone when I'm waiting for carpool, stuck in line or anywhere. I love being able to read my kindle books on my phone.

Best thing ever (by JDMom02 on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 17:11:00)
I'm an avid reader, so I quickly transitioned to e-books. The kindle is the best app for ebooks. I use it daily mainly on my phone and sometimes in my iPad. Buying books and reading them anywhere in the world without the hassle of going to a bookstore, carrying the weight and bulk of the paper books is the best.
Kindle App (by Mira252 on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 17:04:00)
I absolutely love this app. It is so convenient to be able to download ebooks via phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer and read at my leisure. Awesome!
Best app for book lovers (by Eaduvall on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 17:03:00)
I am constantly reading, but I'm also constantly on the go. The kindle app is a perfect solution I have all my books in my pocket. The app allows me to transfer seamlessly from my phone to my table to my kindle. Just open the app and it syncs to the last page you read.
The best yet (by DvdVred on Wed, 18 Mar 2015 16:38:00)
I've had a Kindle since they were available; my current Kindle Fire HDX is my third. Their elegance, ease of use (including ordering and pre-ordering books, along with their instantaneous download), ready in text access to foreign language dictionaries, screen resolution, available useful and enjoyable apps, and durability have continued to improve beyond my expectations. Couldn't do without this portable library and research center.
Still Needs Immersion reading with real-time highlighting (by N/A 1234 on Tue, 17 Mar 2015 12:52:00)
When will Immersion reading **with real-time highlighting** be available like it is on the kindle e-readers? You've only implemented half of the immersion feature.. Please finish the real time highlighting piece! It really does improve the comprehension and retention for complex subjects. Why is this not completed? Did someone write poor requirements or incomplete acceptance criteria for building the new functionality? Helpful? Vote below!
Good App (by Ron JC on Tue, 17 Mar 2015 04:10:00)
This app needs the ability to allow us to review books and see sample within the app.
Porn with new book browser (by istuart45 on Tue, 17 Mar 2015 02:36:00)
Not happy they added a browser built in with full access to lots of pornographic books. I guess kindle is gone for my family for a while. There is no way to control this or lock a child out of it. -they can download book samples of anything they want. Not acceptable to a parent.
Kindle interface on my iPod. (by Basard77 on Tue, 17 Mar 2015 01:25:00)
I love the idea of having an app for it, and I have choice to read my books from any devices of my choice.
Better but lacking (by Britts213 on Tue, 17 Mar 2015 00:13:00)
I like that now you are able to search for kindle books directly thru the app now but after downloading a sample of a book & reaching the end of the sample, I can't for the life of me find a place to purchase the full copy. Even when I go back & search it thru the store it only allows me to "download a sample" or "add to wish list". So frustrated right now!!
Horrible dont get it (by The tony tear on Tue, 17 Mar 2015 00:13:00)
This is annoying as heck its a regular day i guess and sense im sick i decide to read a book on kindle and when i click the book i want to read it doesn't work so i do it on other books but it doesn't happen so im really frustrated and fix it or👎
Still makes books harder to read than necessary (by esoterica on Mon, 16 Mar 2015 23:55:00)
No more Kindle books for me until Amazon again until Amazon fixes the problem of not allowing left justification of text. Full justification makes things much harder to read because it creates huge gaps between words and rivers of white space down the page, especially on small screens. This is supported by every readability study ever, so the fact that Amazon doesn't allow this means that Amazon is purposely making the reading experience worse. iBooks allows setting any book to left justification. Ahhhh.
What's not to love?! (by ihvhope on Tue, 17 Mar 2015 12:57:00)
I wasn't sure I was going to like this app but I bought a book for 9.99 and started reading. I was skeptical but I really enjoy reading from my iphone. I don't have to have my light on at night and I have my phone with me all the time so I can read anywhere. It's easy to use, fast, smart and a great value. It's going to be hard for me to read from a real book from now on because I really enjoy my iphone kindle. Thanks for a great app!
Perfect (by Chuckxnorriz on Tue, 17 Mar 2015 00:28:00)
Love the app sooooooo much
Poor PDF support: crashes, no search, etc. (by skvxpi7b2hrf on Mon, 16 Mar 2015 20:54:00)
App crashes immediately upon opening some PDF files. Some basic features are missing for PDF files that do open without crashing. Specifically, there is no page search and no way to jump to a specific page by typing in the desired page number.

Hard to get to chapters.
No store (by Jerryaumen87 on Sun, 15 Mar 2015 21:55:00)
I don't understand why i can't get into the store on my iPad. The nook app is the same. My mom can get on the store through her tablet but I can't on my iPad. It makes no freakin sense. I'd mainly use the kindle for comics and nook for books since you can get more comics for the kindle than the nook. But update it so I can get to the store and I don't need to do it through my moms tablet.
One of my most used apps (by Jbug3721 on Sun, 15 Mar 2015 18:52:00)
I love this app and I use it everyday. This app makes it easy for me to keep up with my daily reading and it's easy to go back and forth between notes and highlights.
No left justification option (by esoterica on Sun, 15 Mar 2015 17:05:00)
I will never buy an ebook from Amazon again until Amazon fixes the problem of not allowing left justification of text. Full justification makes things much harder to read because it creates huge gaps between words and rivers of white space down the page, especially on small screens. This is supported by every readability study ever, so the fact that Amazon doesn't allow this means that Amazon is purposely making the reading experience worse. iBooks allows setting any book to left justification like any inherently adaptive medium should.
Impossible to see price of book... (by DrWho0420 on Sun, 15 Mar 2015 14:19:00)
Ever since the app updated, the prices of the books are not listed ANYWHERE in the info. The price is not listed anywhere in the list either. This is beyond annoying. I have been buying all my books through the Apple iBook ever since, despite their smaller selection.
Love it!!! Syncs with my actual Kindle like MAGIC! It’s so nice to be on the same page :) (by Gary LaPointe http://GarySaid.com/ on Sat, 14 Mar 2015 20:25:00)
I keep my Kindle in the car for reading on the go and use my iPad (dimmed) for reading in bed without the bright lights on. THIS app keeps my books synced on the same page I left off on! Other than not working well where there is glare (compared to the actual Kindle) the app is slightly nicer than the actual Kindle at this point (and much faster). I know people have e-reader preferences, but I think Kindle has the e-Ink (black and white eReader) market, so that’s who I’m sticking with. The fact that this is a awesome app makes that decision even easier. This syncs properly even if you purchase the books from other sources (like the author directly) but you need to set up Amazon (one time, super easy) to allow you to e-mail books to it. It's got X-Ray just like a Kindle does too. X-Ray gives you details on characters and places and objects. About the only thing that I don't like is when I post a quote from a book to social media (like Facebook) it doesn't put quotes around it so the text looks kind of funny (and you can't edit it). The only thing I don’t like is when I get news on my Kindle, the newsreader is different (better) on the Kindle. You cannot buy books directly from the app, you must go to the web (they’re avoiding the in-app purchase mechanism to save you money).
Just one real issue (by SmallPackages on Sat, 14 Mar 2015 15:49:00)
The app works well for me, books download smoothly, and are easy to read. My one issue is that I Really Really wish I could delete books directly from the app! I decide a book isn't something I want to keep, I have to go online and log in to Amazon then manage my kindle... I often read when off-line so I have to remember the list of what I didn't like until I'm connected again? Seriously! That stinks.

Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 351th to 400th
Extremely disappointed (by Orange moth on Sat, 14 Mar 2015 09:24:00)
If you like high-lighting passages or using word definitions, these features DO NOT work using the newest version of the Kindle app on newly downloaded books on my air2ipad. No help is available at Amazon support
Latest Version Step Back (by 1ST14FUN on Sat, 14 Mar 2015 08:25:00)
I have been using Kindle for iPad since it was first release. This latest version is a step back. The biggest issue is highlighting. The application doesn't detect that you want to highlight a word etc. like it did in previous versions. I mainly read business books and this is very frustrating. The progress at the bottom seems to be always "learning" and doesn't show time to the end of the chapter like it used to. This has been noted by others. Feels like the app is going in the wrong direction and frustrating to deal with defects on an application that I use all the time. Amazon Kindle - Your advantage is/has been that you run well on many different devices. Don't let your success make you lazy. Please Fix!
Love, Love, Love Kindle (by Aquaventures on Fri, 13 Mar 2015 10:56:00)
I've never had any other e-reader except the Kindle - because I've always been totally satisfied. The Kindle App lets me read my books on whatever device I have.....at whatever page I'm on! There was a little bit of an issue of not syncing with my iPhone, but that seems to have cleared up. Thank You!
Freezing up (by Exhausted Trying on Fri, 13 Mar 2015 01:59:00)
Having trouble with this app freezing up continuously while reading. I read a few pages, the page freezes up, I go back to the app. Page, start again, freezes up, etc. Annoying!
I love this app, but hate the constant crashing (by Marisa on Thu, 12 Mar 2015 23:04:00)
I use this app every day to read my text books and study for classes and it's an amazing study tool. If I ever need to connect to a dictionary or wikipedia to understand a word or subject it's an amazing tool and extremely easy. The ability to bookmark pages and highlight and write notes is also extremely helpful. My favorite utility is the ability to search for words or phrases in the book, this is especially helpful for writing down definitions for study guides. It is also very easy to switch to different books within the app. Personally, this helps me because I don't have to lug around heavy books throughout campus and it is more accessible for me to study for longer periods of time in the library. I also have health issues that make it hard for me to carry around heavy books and, so this is a huge plus. However, there is a huge downside to this app which made me drop it two stars. This app crashes and freezes CONSTANTLY. I can rarely get through an entire page without having to close the app, and re-open it again. Sometimes I can't even open the book I am trying to get to without it crashing. This is an enormous waste of time and a huge annoyance to me. This rarely happens on my iPhone app, however it is easier to read text books on the large screen of my iPad. I love this app, but it wastes a lot of time and I would love it if the developers fixed the problem of freezing and crashing while within the app.
Great app (by RobertEvans1985 on Thu, 12 Mar 2015 19:15:00)

Easily expose your kids to pornographic covers (by Bry Jay on Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:51:00)
I loved this app and used it for my kids as well UNTIL the access to the entire Amazon bookstore was added in the app. With two clicks and a quick scroll my kids can be viewing erotic book covers. There is no way to block a child's access to the store! This is such a glaring oversight on Amazon's part and so easily remedied with the addition of a parental lock on the store. From what I have been able to find, Apple's iBooks is the only e-book app that will allow me to block access to these inappropriate titles. Until Amazon fixes this glaring problem, I will buy only through Apple's store. This review is my only hope of communicating with someone live at Amazon and I truly hope that I will be heard and the needed parental controls will be added.
Kindle App (by Wagon32 on Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:13:00)
Love this app. I can access my entire library on my IPad and read anywhere.
Good reader (by vulcan_idic on Thu, 12 Mar 2015 15:40:00)
This is a really nice reader app in general. There are two features I would like it to have that it does not. First, I would like the ability to continuously vertically rather than being forced to page horizontally. I recognize that it is designed to mimic a physical book... but I'm not reading a physical book, I'm reading an ebook. Having book-analog paging as an *option* is cool, as the only option is not. Use the power of the platform! Second, you can sort your books by title, author, or recent (how recently it was added). You can also create user defined collections for personalized order. These are great options, but I would also like to be able to browse the books by 'department' - when I bought the books on Amazon all of them had category/department metadata with them. I see no reason I shouldn't be able to use that metadata within the app to sort by department/category. Granted I could always sort them into personalized categories based departments... but that's a lot of extra work for me to replicate the effects of already present metadata. Other than these two improvements, which have a relatively minor effect on my overall enjoyment of the app, I find this to be an excellent reading app.
This app is great 😊☺️😂👍👌👏👍👍👍 (by 5sos-for-life-1328 on Wed, 11 Mar 2015 05:35:00)
This app is awesome it encourages me to read more people should really get this app it will help you become a better reader and also if ur like me and u are 12 and up your parents won't be telling you why do you always watch tv every day is that all you do all day nothin but once you show them this app and they see you reading they'll stop yelling at you trust me
Does not always sync (by Salitaireholic on Wed, 11 Mar 2015 02:54:00)
When I go to iPhone app it does not sync most of the time to furthest page read. 1 out of 10 times app syncs correctly. I like the app better on iPad as it syncs better with my phone than between the phone & my kindle.
Works for me (by Myaggie2 on Wed, 11 Mar 2015 01:02:00)
I've never had one problem reading my kindle books on my iPhone using this app.
Convenient (by Fun players 13 on Wed, 11 Mar 2015 00:45:00)
I love this app. I don't always have my kindle handy so I can catch up on reading on my phone. Love how it syncs up between devices to automatically advance you to the page you are on. Great app.
Placeholder is an awful 'feature'! (by Kat2021 on Tue, 10 Mar 2015 18:56:00)
Please get rid of this so-called 'feature'. You've made it impossible to scroll through a book & get to the part I want because of this mindbogglingly stupid feature you've added in. I don't want to set a stupid blue dot that I can't get rid of on a certain page. I want to be able to move about freely in a book. Worst update to this app ever.
Could not connect (by JameZ136513 on Tue, 10 Mar 2015 15:35:00)
I'm very frustrated with this app. My problem is the app will not connect to the internet. As soon as it's downloaded it is automatically registered to my account but will not sync. I've tried to unregister it so I can register again and I get a "could not connect" message. All other apps have no problem accessing internet services. I tapped on "contact us" in the settings explaining my problem just to get another "could not connect".
Love it (by jeepjammin on Tue, 10 Mar 2015 03:19:00)
Simply put, best invention in years. Love the audible options.
Awesome! (by Parksrandb on Tue, 10 Mar 2015 03:06:00)
My favorite ap to read by!
Love it! (by 4 Chrissy on Tue, 10 Mar 2015 01:43:00)
I love the kindle app! Very easy to use and I especially love that it's on my iPad and iPhone. Books are always handy on my phone if I'm waiting for an appointment or sitting in traffic.
Love kindle! (by IrmaOrange on Mon, 09 Mar 2015 19:37:00)
Change backgrounds, font, size, highlight, etc. best reading app ever.

Reading is my life! (by debbiejeanbrown on Mon, 09 Mar 2015 16:48:00)
As a cultural studies scholar, I read A LOT-- about six hours per day, at least six days a week. I have the original Kindle, the Fire, and the Fire HDX. But I love having the Kindle app on my iPhone and iPad because I never know when I might be somewhere that provides me with an opportunity to read for a few minutes. That I can read across all my devices, even my laptop, is priceless! The glitches are minor. I now only buy hard copy books if I absolutely have to have it and it's not available on Kindle. I wholeheartedly recommend this app.
Nice! (by Fausron on Mon, 09 Mar 2015 01:31:00)
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.
Only one complaint (by Fbhjkkhhb on Sun, 08 Mar 2015 19:41:00)
I enjoy this app so much but I REALLY would like to be able to organize my books. Please find a way to do this in a future update!
Good app but... (by cerene_siege on Sun, 08 Mar 2015 19:30:00)
Golly gee, I wish I could purchase kindle books on my iPad, either through this app or the Amazon app. Really annoys me I have to wait to get back to my laptop or my kindle. Otherwise love it!
Full of story!! (by Mr. Ringer Bell on Sun, 08 Mar 2015 08:08:00)
Being the member of novel and action story. This app is a good way to save story and i read it all the time. It is so useful
My favorite app (by Cajun sushi girl on Sun, 08 Mar 2015 01:18:00)
I've had the Kindle app for over 3 years. If your looking to save your favorite books by author or subject use the book case and label it whatever you like then move the book into it. Shopping for books is easy on Safari just go to the Amazon Kindle store buy your book and it sends it to your app. Now if your looking for free books type in the subject then up at the top of the page is search by relevance tap the lowest to highest price the free ones will be first. They also have a top 100 free list on the Amazon web site that has tons of different subjects and list the top 100 in that category. I type in a book I know is free then scroll down to open in the Amazon home page. Then scroll down and it will tell you were the book is list in sales for free then it has a link to the top 100 free books. I have over 5000 books and 90 percent were free.
Can't select the word (by Spershow on Sat, 07 Mar 2015 21:42:00)
I can't select the English words for definition in my iPad, however it works fine on my iPhone
Awesomeness (by Poohspal6583 on Sat, 07 Mar 2015 20:23:00)
I love my Kindle app. I originally had a kindle and when it died I was very upset. I love to read. When I found I could get it on my iPad I have been reading ever since.
Love the kindle app (by Joshuaolson9 on Sat, 07 Mar 2015 05:14:00)
I love having my books with me at all times. My only complaint is that in night time mode it cuts off the top line of text. You can see in white or sepia but disappears when in night time mode.
Highlight/Define unresponsive (by Poor highlight on Sat, 07 Mar 2015 00:23:00)
I just upgraded to iPad Air 2. Highlighting or selecting text for definition is very hit & miss. Like 10 misses to 1 hit. I am not sure it only started with the new iPad, but it is ALWAYS this way now. EXTREMELY aggravating. Does not happen on my Kindle. I hate to give a bad rating but this is a major problem. If someone knows what I am doing wrong please tell me.
Love the Kindle! (by Yevijl on Fri, 06 Mar 2015 19:07:00)
I have Kindles and also use the Kindle app on my iPad and phone. It is so easy to use and all interact with each others's progress. I read anywhere and love the ease in downloading books anywhere.
Love It,but (by Read-o-holic on Fri, 06 Mar 2015 17:08:00)
Love it, but I really wish there was descriptions on the app for the books that I have. I tend to buy them bulk so I always have books to read, but when I go to look for a new read I have to book the title up on Amazon.com for a bunch of books to see the description. It's annoying and time-consuming when I have close to 400 books to choose from.
Missing simple features (by Annoyedclientgh on Fri, 06 Mar 2015 16:57:00)
I like the app but why isn't there a feature to scroll view like in iBooks? Other than that the applied great.
Book Browser Download Broken (by kwik on Fri, 06 Mar 2015 12:46:00)
The book browser download is broken. When it first launched the feature worked, then with the last update, selecting download does nothing for the kindle unlimited.
My Constant Companion (by jamesnotjim on Thu, 05 Mar 2015 03:13:00)
The Kindle app lacks a little of the polish of iBooks, but I find the Kindle platform superior, especially due to its ability to sync across multiple devices. I often go back and forth between reading on my iPhone and my iPad. It's seamless. The reading experience on the app is good. The sepia color scheme is easy on the eyes. Font size adjustment options make reading on the iPhone comfortable. The integrated brightness control (a new feature) is nice. The integrated dictionary and notes/highlight features are very good and I use them constantly. It needs a way to organize books into collections. That ability was recently added to the desktop version, so I suspect it's coming for the mobile version.
Almost a kindle in itself... (by Thereadaholic on Thu, 05 Mar 2015 02:45:00)
I truly cannot see any drawbacks or anything that I am lacking, from a consumer point-of-view, from using this app on my iPad, compared to using a kindle.....except perhaps a little less screen glare. I love Amazon's paper-white screen! Books download immediately and rapidly. They are searchable, able to be bookmarked, and downloadable. Once you install this app, you are ready to go!
It"s Great But.... (by LeighA0315 on Thu, 05 Mar 2015 01:08:00)
It's great but I can't give it five stars because I can't actually purchase books in the app! I can purchase books on iBooks and Barnes and Noble in their apps but not Amazon. Oh wait I can download a sample.... utterly useless. So I am giving it a 4 out of 5 until I can actually purchase a book on the app.
Useless as a textbook (by Nomadf4i on Wed, 04 Mar 2015 21:57:00)
First time I've used kindle for a textbook for a college class. With other textbooks I've have will show the entire page as it would look if you had the actual book. This is especially useful when comparing notes with my classmates. The kindle subdivides the text from a 300 page to a 20,000 pages book. I've also notice that it will move text around. If I read the first half of a sentence and rest on the next page the kindle will move the first half of the sentence to the second page when I turn back to the first to read it again. It leaves me wondering where the text went. Wish I had just bought the physical book.
Love it! (by Tkincaid1975 on Wed, 04 Mar 2015 18:45:00)
I do love holding a book. And I loved my actual Kindle device. But nothing beats using my iPad or iPhone to read. I love to read in bed and book lights are a pain. With the app you can read in bed with the back light of the iPad. So easy to lose and if you drop it you don't lose your place!
late adopter (by rockafellas100 on Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:35:00)
late comer to kindle and other ebook format; could no longer justify not using; been pleased so far with variety of use; using for public library books, documents, commercial purchased books, etc.
Paper books are so 20th Century (by Gary Larson on Wed, 04 Mar 2015 01:42:00)
I like the Kindle. I don't have to haul pounds and pounds of books around anymore. I do wish, however that the interface was more intuitive for organizing all my purchases.
Can't buy books (by Nyjaaa on Wed, 04 Mar 2015 00:51:00)
What is the point of a kindle app when I can't buy books? I would think that they would want us to buy product off of their app but having to go to their website to do it is cumbersome. I guess I won't be using it.
Excellent (by anny24 on Tue, 03 Mar 2015 17:52:00)
I read all my books thru kindle app and I can say it's amazing.
Wishing to be able to order from Amazon!! (by Maggiehol on Tue, 03 Mar 2015 17:23:00)
Used to have kindle but need to up grade. Like the app other than I can't order books.....have to leave the app to order. Also end of book links do not work.
Love this app!!!! (by Damon The Monster on Tue, 03 Mar 2015 14:20:00)
I'm so glad that I'm able to use this app on my iPad!!! I get gift cards from every where and it is great I can you use it for my Kindle app! Thanks!!!
Wonderful App! (by bam816 on Tue, 03 Mar 2015 12:38:00)
One of my most used apps.
3.5 (by tetaz426 on Tue, 03 Mar 2015 03:42:00)
Love reading on my kindle app. Super convenient, however I wish there was a way to mark or file books in the library to know which I've read.
Battery Drain (by just aitch on Tue, 03 Mar 2015 00:46:00)
When left running in the background, the app drains the battery very quickly. Very annoying feature, hopefully it is a quick fix on an upcoming update.
Great! (by edalosi on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 21:37:00)
I've been using my Kindle for years to open up a world of reading for me.
Always works great (by Austin & Hailey's mom on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 21:11:00)
Never had any problems with this app. Love having books on my phone. This app is great

Great app (by Rhonenback on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 18:43:00)
It's not as sophisticated as the iBooks app, but for regular reading is great.
Amazing (by Rjmp❤️ on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 14:41:00)
So useful and helpful!! I love using it bc you can use it offline, the books are cheap, you can highlight you can use overdrive all I have to say is WELL DONE AMAZON!
Useful (by Craxxxxxxxx on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 09:48:00)
Everything I need in a reader
Doesn't sync location (by mjbrancato on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 06:48:00)
The Kindle app is really great, but it doesn't sync your current location across multiple devices. The sync now button doesn't work either. I am using iOS 8.1.3.
Was awesome! Now, has completely gone. (by Cabbie17 on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 06:27:00)
After latest update, my app has gone away. I can't it download again. I click on the app on update screen and nothing happens. "If it ain't broke . . ."
Read anywhere at anytime (by karat_texas on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 03:03:00)
I love having a library at my fingertips on my iPhone. It's so simple to enjoy a good book while waiting at the doctor's office, eating lunch at work or just before bedtime. It's simple to use the Kindle app and very convenient.
Love it.! (by Zombigurrl on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 01:03:00)
The Kindle app is very useful. Works well with iPad and enables me to carry my favorite titles wherever I go. Love it!
Kindle app (by Sisbyrd on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 23:46:00)
I love this app. I love having all my books with me when I want them.
Great Tool for Avid Readers (by GrannyKarb on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 18:46:00)
Originally I had a Kindle and thoroughly enjoyed it. Unfortunately it died at about a year. However, I was thrilled to learn of the Kindle app for iPhone and iPad, both of which I use daily. It's a great way to always have something to read at hand, is easily navigable,doesn't eat battery life quickly, and it a great benefit to me. Love it!
Suggestion for improvement (by Nikomari on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 13:56:00)
The app itself is quite good and I read all of my books on it. However, it would be much better if there were more sorting options. I now have so many books stored on it and it's frustrating to have the books I've already read among the ones still to read. A better idea is to have an archive feature for books that are finished or a menu option with choices on sorting the books.
IPhone (by Reenybug78 on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 13:32:00)
I prefer to read on my kindle, but I do find the app easy to use on my iPhone.
Kindle App (by Lindap99 on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 06:25:00)
Every update makes the app better! Thanks Amazon.
Kindle for iPad and iPhone 6 Plus (by D.feron on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 06:02:00)
I have been using Kindle on my iPad 2, now I have an iPhone 6 Plus, I love the big screen, now I " can " use my iPhone to read my books in Kindle, however I do prefer reading on my iPad 2
Can't use my app (by Pinkturtle on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 04:44:00)
I love my kindle app but for some reason it does not love my iPad mini. I can't use it anymore. Went to update the apps and it stopped working. As with many of my apps. Now I one of the newest iPad minis out so, I don't think it's my iPad. I think it's the app but I could be wrong. Please check into this because I really would hate to find other ways to read my kindle books. Thanks
Great app for iPhone (by unclepole on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 00:24:00)
This is a great app for those of us that don't have a kindle.
Great App (by MelvinGraf on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 23:31:00)
Ability to highlight and take notes is great. Also really like the ability to make night reading easy by making the pages black and letters white.
Very convenient! (by Tbree57 on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 19:27:00)
I found the Kindle app to be user friendly & it's nice not to have to carry around another electronic device. I have the app installed on my iPhone 4s.
Great App (by papaelim on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 17:05:00)
Great app. Easy to use.
Deleted my books (by Mike1199 on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 16:46:00)
Look, this is a well-polished app. But some stuff makes me scratch my head. I hate the review popup at the last page of the book. I would rather have a link I can CHOOSE to navigate. Can they ever stop nagging and tracking? Also, the page flip animation is broken. I have "page turn animation" turned off. When I flip to the next page, the screen slides to the left as the new page appears. Unfortunately, it's not the next page, it's the current page, and a fraction of a second later the next page flips in. I would rather have the next page instead of something that confuses my mind and destroys the immersive ness of the reading.
PROBLEM! (by Jjhm49***** on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 15:50:00)
Biggest fault is that you can't delete multiple books from your device! You have to delete each book individually!!
Terrific app for reading (by Rach🐘 on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 15:47:00)
This is the app I use the most. It's easy to use and simple to navigate. Highly recommended.
The Best, on the go! (by ReBornRenee on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 15:32:00)
The handy app is an avid book reader's paradise! Two thumbs up!
Almost perfect (by amberrawli on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 13:41:00)
I love being able to carry all of my books everywhere I go. The layout is great and I love that you can easily change the color and size while you are reading. My only complaint is that you can't buy books directly from the app.
Great App (by Sherricat on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 09:38:00)
I love the Kindle app for iPad. It works great with OverDrive and syncs my other two Kindles effortlessly. I always use the app when downloading library books. It's easy and fast and I prefer using the app rather than going directly through my Kindle device.
Wish (by shareless on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 01:36:00)
What I wish I could do is create files so I can organize books the way I want.
I get can access to my books from any device. (by Mardroger on Fri, 27 Feb 2015 21:20:00)
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.
love it, but would like some enhancements (by Roxy Montana on Fri, 27 Feb 2015 20:39:00)
I agree with other reviews, this is a fun way to read, and store books. The only thing I really want is to have a folder to put books I've read, take them out of my library and save in case I want to read again or just so I don't forget and repurchase. The only thing you can do is delete them, and I think this is a waste...kinda like giving away books that you might like to keep for the future.
No Complaints (by Paulietd on Fri, 27 Feb 2015 14:16:00)
Always enjoy reading on my Kindle app.
Excellent Personal Library Replacement App (by GuyWhoPlaysAngryBirds on Fri, 27 Feb 2015 11:29:00)
I love the idea of carrying my library in my pocket / pack pack, on a single small device. Kindle makes that possible! This app has everything I need to download and upload books, save bookmarks, highlight text, etc. It could benefit from a couple usability enhancements which can save users a few extra touches to complete frequent tasks, like accessing bookmarks. Make them visible and persistent on the side of the window, instead of making me select a pop up window, then touch the mark from my list. I do a lot of 'page flipping' while studying material, and there doesn't appear to be a streamlined way to keep your finger on a page as a temp placeholder, while glancing at other pages. Also, consider making a 'forward' button alongside the 'back' button, to make flipping and cross referencing easier between your last 2 places visited. Great app, and keep up the excellent work Amazon!
Not good. (by Charleigh Dannielle on Fri, 27 Feb 2015 10:25:00)
Easy to navigate but I can't read past the first sentence on the book descriptions of reviews. I can't click on anything past the image of the book. Why?!
Book Browser Needs A Fixin'! (by charityamis on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 23:42:00)
I was so excited for book browser, but I haven't been able to download any books. So broken, please fix.
My go to reading app (by Mrijac on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 22:43:00)
Have loved this app for five years. I have the nook and iBooks apps but much prefer Kindle. I only wish you could buy books right from app the way we used to do and they way you can with iBooks.
Favorite traveling reading app. (by Nick # 9 on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 22:42:00)
App goes everywhere with me and is used on multiple devices. Love it.
Great app (by Snerison on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 20:21:00)
I love this app. I can read and sync my books anywhere!
Works great on my IPad (by Anna KHM on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 14:27:00)
I really like that I can turn the background black and dim the text so I can read in bed. Thank you for this functionality.
No complaints (by Junglejetset175 on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 12:28:00)
The app works well for me. It loads the books for me, and I read them. Period.
I love this app (by Syn1962 on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 09:28:00)
I've had a kindle and or the app for several years now. I appreciate that I can read without reading glasses!
App is awesome (by Kindlemelongtime on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 03:38:00)
My Library in My Hand (by bjfpdts on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 02:13:00)
This app works extremely well with my local library. I have a number of books always ready to start when I finish a book. I, also, like the ability to sync with Audible audio books.
What happened (by GFFBookworm on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 02:03:00)
Worked great until today and now when I send something to the iPad it never gets received, says it's taking to long to download
Overall fabulous (by Evan CM on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 01:19:00)
Quick and easy. Some issues with weird page numbers and reading between devices. Would also like ability to show unfinished books vs finished ones. But overall I am extremely pleased.
Works well on my old iPad 2 (by AC @ KFUL on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 20:32:00)
May be even better on a Kindle.
The most awesome app ever (by Jensyds on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 20:01:00)
I am so stoked about this app. Instead of using just my kindle I can read from my phone and my iPad! This is so awesome. Because it can sync, and all of my books are available in the cloud. I have completed reading over 25 books within the past four months just by using this amazing app. I am constantly telling everyone that I know that they need this. Also, another feature I love is that I can buy textbooks in kindle version, and read them on my phone as well!!!!!!!!!! Talk about ease!
Great app (by VBD123 on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 17:31:00)
I love the Kindle app for both iPhone and iPad. I can access all my Kindle books and pick up where I last left it. And even my6Plus is smaller than a Kindle and I'm already carrying it around.
Fantastic (by Chris71615282 on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 15:04:00)
Would give 5 stars if the store was available in the app
Unorganized (by NancyJean2012 on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 14:40:00)
I would like to put the books I've read into a separate file. It's very unorganized. I would like to easily get rid of some of the free books I've purchased that were terrible. The whole thing is cluttered. But I enjoy being able to read from my iPad.
Awesome app (by Phoebe767 on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 13:12:00)
Love this app it's perfect I can literally get any book I want in like less than a second if your a book reader you have to get this app!!
Great app but needs one feature (by Rangepig on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 11:31:00)
I have a Kindle but I never use it. I prefer this app on my iPad. One thing I find lacking: I wish external links in books would open in Safari or at least give me the option to open them In another app in the built-in browser like other apps do. Sometimes I want to add a bookmark so I can read a url later outside the Kindle app, but there's no easy way to do this.
Never leave home without it! Actually, never home without it either! (by Sgt Nopo's Mom on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 10:01:00)
Absolutely love this app! I'm a voracious reader; don't need an excuse, just a spare moment. This app is easy to use and goes where I go. After reading a book I can assign it a category/folder and that's where it appears on all my other devices. So simple :)
Kindle apparatus (by Jimfabes on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 08:11:00)
It would be great if the apparatus had a magnetized handle that you could attach to the device, so you could hold it with ease. This is much better than buying a book though, I love it. Jim Fabes West Palm Beach, FL

Best choice for ebook (by Scitech from tinhte.vn on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 03:49:00)
Kindle is best choice for ebook
Great app (by Vhickel on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 02:04:00)
Awesome app. Use it to read books borrowed from the library system switching between iPhone and kindle paper white. It would be nice to be able to return books to library directly.
Awesome (by bijoyg on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 22:56:00)
My fav e-books app. Love the seamless syncing across my iDevices.
Love the Kindle app!! (by Shauna Castrejon on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 22:27:00)
The Kindle App is perfect if you are a reading lover!
Great for reading (by .Outlaw. on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 20:35:00)
Wish more books were added as some are paper copies only on Amazon.
Love to read on Kendal (by Jana DeLeon on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 19:31:00)
This reading on Kendal is very addictive, I keep coming back for more books. I highly recommend this way of reading.
Very Good (by Pestouff on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 19:12:00)
I'm more than happy with the App.
No built in store? (by t4kit0 on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 14:03:00)
There's no more store built in to the app, only the book browser, which you cannot purchase from. It instead tells you you need to buy it on amazon. One star until book purchasing is done directly in the app.
Love Kindle! (by tgoegle on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:40:00)
I love the Kindle app!
Unable to open some of my kindle books (by OrangyE on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:08:00)
It's annoying that the book you are reading or just purchase is not opening in the app. This is only happening in ipad version. I am able to open those books in mobile version. But it's more connivence to read it in bigger screen. Where can I find help?
Love it! (by 1glassychick on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 10:19:00)
Love it! It is so easy !
Love the app (by Nikkrlec on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 08:56:00)
So many books at our finger tips. Home education at its techy highest with kindle on every device!
Great App. I don't like the new update though. (by Islanddkine12 on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 04:29:00)
Is it just me or? Ever since the new update, my kindle app keeps freezing while I'm reading. Please fix this! Other than that, great app! Easy to use and super convenient for anyone who loves to read (:
So convenient (by sheehan@43 on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 00:55:00)
I love the convenience of having all my books on my Kindle app. While at home, I read them on my iPad. However, if I'm away from home, like waiting in a doctor's office or on a car repair, I can still read my books on my iPhone. It even keeps up with the last page I read, so I don't have to search for my place each time.
Great App-almost as good as having a real book in your hands (by Vbpapa on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 00:49:00)
I love how easy it is to flip pages and bookmark a page with this app. The sepia background gives the books more of a real feel too.
Amazon (by Turtle lover 152 on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 00:48:00)
I think it is not right that you have to have an Amazon account to even get on the app. Also everyone wrote about their iPad I mean, is it really only good on an iPad.
Excellent App... (by Theshape69 on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 00:46:00)
But ever since the latest update, my app will no longer sync and samples will not download if I send from Amazon.com. I have to get them from the Book Browser. Please fix.
Love this app! (by Kellgraphc on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 17:01:00)
Glad that I have collections now. I have almost 1000 books. Took a while to figure out where specific functions were, as they were moved. Don't like how hard it is to turn a page that has been highlighted, especially when reading on my iPhone. On iPad it is fine. I go back and forth during the day from iPad to iPhone and when I finish a book on one, the app still sends me to that book on my other device. I want a book to start at the cover, not the first page. Not sure if I can do that by default. But I love it!
Confusing (by jcl1957 on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 16:34:00)
I am new to the world of iPads and apps. I hoped this would be intuitive; it is not. I also did not realize that I couldn't purchase items through this app. It feels cumbersome to have to go to my computer to purchase, especially since the whole purpose of having an iPad was to not have my computer with me. When I searched for free books, turns out many that came up were not free. I also could not figure out how to refine my search within each large category. It feels clumsy; could be I'm just not tech-savvy enough......
Exceptional app (by Mrs Sledge on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 15:55:00)
I've loved Kindle since its first incarnation, and I love it more, daily.
Love it! (by Renu Brij on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 15:55:00)
I have switched exclusively to the kindle app on my iPad from the kindle. It is very handy to have my books, Internet and games on one device especially when traveling.
Use this app on my iPad everyday (by Happy Global Traveler on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 13:37:00)
I read most of my books digitally using this app. I like it.
Awesome (by DepthMaster on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 11:57:00)
The only thing I love more than my real kindle is this app.
Can't turn off justification! (by ScrabbleFan100 on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 02:22:00)
Kindle for iPhone is amazingly backwards. Something as basic as turning off justification is not an option. Consequently, the texts are spread out with unequal spacing which makes reading difficult and annoying on the phone. I'm extremely frustrated and regret buying book through Amazon rather than iBooks. Not doing it again.
The Best App! (by 786bismillah on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 01:31:00)
Ever since I got the kindle app, I no longer buy books, only ebooks from Amazon. The app works great, navigation, highlights, notes, etc. I don't know how I managed without this app before! With kindle unlimited, I always have something to read, and I let the kids read their books on my app, and on their kindles (we are big kindle fans in my family). I highly recommend this app!
Love it (by cmt1126 on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 22:07:00)
I love my kindle app. Reading is easy fun and fast to find good books
Not bad -- could be better (by LorrSG1 on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 22:03:00)
I use my Kindle and this app on my iPhone interchangeably. Both devices can take a while to sync. Worse is trying to go back to see something. Overall, however, it works.
Excellent app (by Bruno the Builder on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 21:27:00)
Seems like a stable and well written app for an iPad. It keeps track of where I left off across the library I've accumulated.
Extra Benefits (by ConnieDodson on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 21:17:00)
Kindle app works as it should. Amazon lets you have a sample of each digital book, if you like, much more of a sample of the book than at Amazon.
It's not the Kindle (by Sophia,Lady on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 21:02:00)
It's not the same thing to read on the kindle and the iPhone, but that aside I think that it's a really good app. The updates are not always good, they tend to be a little slow sometimes but it's still a great reading app.
I hate this (by Coolgirlrules12 on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 19:18:00)
It want let me finish my story like seriously I think this should be the worst app every
Beat Friend! (by Lainie E on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 16:56:00)
Kindle for iPad and iPhone is my best friend, after God and my dogs, of course. I used to carry tons of books with me but now I have hundreds of books all the time and they weigh nothing, are always available, and I have access to new ones at any time.
Island Girl (by Carol4700 on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 16:14:00)
I really like this app but sure wish there was a brief synopsis of the book somewhere. I download so many books I forget what they are about or what attracted me to get them in the first place! I also preferred page numbers instead of time left to read but can live without that feature.
Cannot file books (by Ajabba on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 15:54:00)
I love reading books with the Kindle books on my iPad. It's convenient and I like that I can change the background color and brightness of the pages. What bothers me very much is that I can't put the books into folders after they're read. With hundreds of books, it's hard to keep up with what I've read and what I haven't read. Then, when I open a book to see if I have read it, it puts it at the top of the list again, putting it in front of books I haven't read. Maybe I shouldn't buy so many books at one time or maybe I should write down what I have read, purchased, and not read. That kind of defeats the purpose of convenience with. This is a major problem for me. Surely it's not too hard to come up with some type of a folder system? I would pay money for that...even a subscription.
Best book/magazine reader for the iPad (by Dmc75002 on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 15:16:00)
This is my go-to book/magazine reader. Tied to you amazon account and you have 1-click purchase. Click - read. As simple as that.
Love it! (by SaritaGL on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 14:08:00)
I was anti-electronic books, I love the smell of a new book, feeling their pages, but once I bought my first book in Kindle I realized how easy and practical is, I only use it on my iPhone, I have never had any issues, I can go back and forth to all my favorite books, highlight favorite parts, and the best part is that I can read anytime and anywhere! Love the app and the convenience of it!
App allows phone to sleep while I'm reading - fail (by jon.anon on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 14:03:00)
The kindle app is fine - there's not much to it. The thing that kills me is that by the time I get to the bottom of a page the phone dims and locks because it thinks the app has gone idle. ??? I have to unlock, enter my passcode and then the kindle app displays a spinner and I'm back on the page... This is a horrendous experience. Please send your devs this code snippet. [[UIApplication sharedApplication] setIdleTimerDisabled:YES];
Kindle for iPhones (by jsandberg on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 12:59:00)
Works well, very convenient - great App!
Many good aspects, but (by Beth from Michigan on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 11:16:00)
I always said that I would never be one of the people who read books on an electronic reader, but here I am after many years of my Kindle app. I love the convenience of syncing across devices and carrying a library in my hand. However there could be some improvements. The ability to categorize my book. While it does organize by author, the categorization function is weak.
Favorite Ap (by K8yR on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 05:55:00)
Kindle always works flawlessly for me. It's my most used Ap on the iPad Mini.
Best reading app (by Mber151 on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 05:13:00)
The best app for reading. Go kindle.
No "Dead Tree Additions" (by Leather Carver on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 05:08:00)
I have been using the Kindle app on my phone and iPad for a very long time. I love the ability to have any book I want or need at my finger tips! No need to search through stacks of books to find want I am looking for I have it with me everywhere.
Love my kindle. (by empyrealife on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 03:49:00)
This is my go to library on my iPad or iPhone. Easy to organize and to manage my library.
Does what it does well (by Alaskan Lad on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 03:11:00)
Audio sync works great, like the ability to read during lunch and listen to the audio during the commute to and from work.
Jim (by Meadefan on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 01:51:00)
I am disappointed with the time left feature. It is useless. Page numbers are better. Having said this, I am,overall, pleased with the selection of books, and, generally, the lack of errors.
Sew your button back on :) (by Xandis on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 00:50:00)
Just add the Kindle store link to your homepage * * * Now you have your own Kindle Store button and no one can take it away from you! Not even the big, mean Apple.
Kindle app is great! (by NIRVANA!!!!! on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 00:42:00)
I really enjoy reading books on my Kindle app. There is a good selection of my favorite authors, and all of my purchases are stored on Amazon to be re read on any of my devices or my PC. It's a win/win situation as far as I'm concerned.
Great App (by tterpy on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 23:40:00)
Kindle has taken the book industry by storm.
For Popular Science & Regular Text Books (by Max Headram on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 23:20:00)
I use the IOS app for iPad almost exclusively for all types of science and math books. With this, I can easily cross reference between books, access Wikipedia and the web in general for more clarification and other references and switch to pocket CAS for calculations. This makes what they used to call progressive (meandering) education much easier. It also handles very large books fairly efficiently which is especially appreciated by anyone who wants to read textbooks and has tried to use NOOK, which barely functions at all; and note that most Barnes & Noble textbooks require NOOK Study which is not available for iPad.

Wonderful (by csmaberry on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 22:39:00)
Wonderful way to read a book. I like it better than have to carry a book around!
MY FAVORITE THING EVER (by MrWonderful86 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 22:37:00)
I absolutely adore this app. It is the most used app on my iPad and the reason why I am getting much less sleep these days. This app paired with Amazon Kindle Unlimited is better than Christmas!
One Issue (by JoelGen on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 22:02:00)
Purchasing Kindle editions through the Kindle app should be available. There's really no logic behind this feature being vacant. What's more, the Amazon app for iPad doesn't allow purchase of Kindle editions either (or instant video/digital music, for that matter). I shouldn't have to use more than one device to purchase a digital edition of a book, movie, or music. Add this feature to all your apps, and you'll be rolling with a 5-star rating for each.
App has improved (by NYC29 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 20:38:00)
Can read samples and easily download new books
Excellent app (by Ronb505 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 20:38:00)
Great app, wish it could read out like the kindle fire
Consistently great app (by Roglows on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 19:28:00)
I love this app and use it often. My only wish is that we had the option of seeing page numbers (as well as ) percents. Sometimes I prefer that. Otherwise, this is consistently great.
This is the best (by The bear track on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 19:06:00)
I have a vision problem that makes reading books and other media difficult and tiring. My Kindle has saved me. I especially like being able to select a word in a foreign language and have it translated for me. I don't leave home without my Kindle and have it installed on all of my devices. Absolutely the best and so intuitive to use. Great design work.
Update ruins experience… (by dannerville on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 18:52:00)
Has gone from quick downloads to "they no longer work in any reasonable time."
Great App (by Precious Grace on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 18:01:00)
Love my kindle. Awesome app.
This app is pretty good for iPads. (by Stephanie from Chicago. on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 17:45:00)
I have actual Kindles; the Fire, the Paperwhite, and the Voyage. But I often use the app because I have my iPad with me a lot. I saw that someone was annoyed with the page refresh. It's a small annoyance but not that big of a deal IMO. I also saw about the page numbers and progress. On the book I'm currently reading, you can get this by tapping the lower left corner. It cycles through all of that info on each tap. I've seen the text shifting problem too. When you go ahead or back, then return to the page you were on, you sometimes get a reformatted page. But that sometimes happens on the real Kindle too. It's also minor. My only gripe is that we really need more font choices. But everything else has been almost perfect as far as I'm concerned. I'm able to read, highlight, and get definitions just fine. I'm satisfied.
So slow (by Lucaserica on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 17:18:00)
I rented a book for a class an it takes forever to download what I need. It also freezes a lot, and we you are taking a quiz and need to look something up this is a big issue. God for bid if I close the app. It has to start the whole long process over! I have the app on both my IPad and iPhone I wish they would fix these issues now!!!
Suggestion (by Rich Arnold on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 17:13:00)
When you put in a search word/term can you also include ones notes in the search results. Thank you
One small suggestion (by Blackthorne20 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 16:41:00)
Can you please give us an option to have the text left justified? I find the extra large gaps very distracting.
Quit taking away my page numbers! (by frost1020 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 16:35:00)
Good app. They keep messing with it, though! I like seeing page numbers and time until end of chapter displayed in the corner so I can judge when I'll be to bed. Also, it won't let me purchase a book easily from a sample book. I do have purchases blocked on my iPad to keep my kids from buying stuff, but would it be difficult to take me from the Kindle app to the Amazon page for the book to buy it there without me having to lookup the book myself in the browser? It could just be simpler.
I'm in love with my kindle (by BrysonMommy on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 15:28:00)
My kindle is awesome I can't even pick up a paperback book anymore...my books are on the move whenever I am love it!!!!
Much lighter than most books (by Mst6 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 15:24:00)
The Kindle saves my back from heavy books. Once I bought my Kindle, I knew it was a gem! You can have hundreds of books on it and it won't hurt your back!
Great app (by Bobsaysno on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 15:21:00)
I really like the way it syncs between my Microsoft computer, my iPhone and my iPad. At my age I hate to try to remember what page I'm on
radamczyk (by RMA970 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 14:33:00)
I just LOVE this!!!! It's great to be able to go from my laptop to my iPhone and go to the page I was last reading!!!
One thing missing... (by RhianneCA on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 13:43:00)
The ability to read the synopsis of each book directly from the app. With that addition, this app would be perfect. Nook has this capability and it's quite handy.
Love my Kindle app (by maincook6 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 13:09:00)
I like the Kindle app for IPAD. I use it even more than IBooks that is part of the apple family. I am now reading a lot more than I have been able to in years.
Love it but..... (by Trish503 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 12:19:00)
I really love my Kindle app. There's just a few things I wish they could fix. I wish the search feature was more I depth and detailed. I also wish there was a way to go from chapter to chapter like I was able to on my Kindle.
Great app (by 41461 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 12:09:00)
This is one of my favorite apps that I use. I highly recommend it because it's easy to use and very helpful.
Love it (by thumpaholden on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 11:51:00)
The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is that when I reach the end of a book, I'd like to have the option of linking from the suggested reading directly to the amazon pages for those books (Kindle IS an Amazon reader, after all). Also, some text books are terribly cumbersome. Amazon should set a standard format that links chapters to their glossaries and text answer sections at the back of the book.
Love it on my phone. (by Jbdelk on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 09:48:00)
Easy to use and convenient for when I can't get to my regular Kindle.
Kindle (by Renatentwo on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 09:45:00)
This is a great app. Using the public library is another option for books that is easy and free. Accessibility to reading material while traveling is critical to me and as long as I have internet I'm never out of reach of a book.
Question (by Schedfrine on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 05:11:00)
How could it be any better?
love it (by macstitz on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 02:09:00)
would be lost without it. do all my reading on ipad and iphone. syncs nicely. can read at night without disturbing my husband.
App works fine for me (by Kt3172415 on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 01:38:00)
I only wish there was an easy way to buy books, like there is on real kindles
Works well. (by LoneWolfUSMC on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 01:33:00)
Makes it easy for me to read my books on the go. Syncs well between my iPad and iPhone. I would have given another star if it would let me purchase books in the app or on the Amazon App. It's ridiculous that I have to go to the website to make purchases. In this aspect Apple does it much better.
Great app but... (by Lindatheannoyed on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 01:27:00)
Great app but I would love to follow all links included in text.
Unmatched content (by Chaboomy on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 01:19:00)
No one comes close to Amazon's book library size. And no other app allows you to go to your local library and borrow electronic books. I've used Kindle since its beginnings on just about every platform, and highly recommend it.
Great app (by Joe in MI on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 01:11:00)
As a former Kindle owner I must the Kindle App for my new IPad is great! It's easier to use and I can read in better comfort.

I love it. All my books are on all my apple devices and update automatically. Perfect
Kindle App works great. (by JoeNo123 on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 22:59:00)
Love to read Kindle books on my IPad. I like it better than reading with my first generation Kindle Fire.
Excellent! (by Nathanbshaver on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 21:16:00)
Always love reading on the go, waiting in line, or caught with a few minutes to spare. Kindle app brings my library to me any where. Great!
Kindle for iOS is no Kindle (by Michael Kazlow on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 20:14:00)
When I open a book on a Kindle the page I am reading is just there for the viewing. When I open the app to read a book on the iPad, the app insists upon checking for the most recent page (I assume) and refreshing the page. That behavior is annoying. The page I was reading is there one moment, gone the next, then it is returned. This behavior doesn’t occur on the Kindle e-reader or Kindle Fire. If something pulls you away from reading, the refresh is disruptive. If the app finds you are on a later page on another device, by all means asks if you wish to switch. Otherwise, just let me read
Perfect reading app (by Kili2000 on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 16:10:00)
Love this app. it allows me to use my cell phone as reading tool. And Amazon offers free books and good discounts. The only negative is the inability to purchase books right from the app in the iPhone.
Still the Best (by CMorgan180 on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 15:38:00)
I still like Kindle the best because I can put a Kindle app on all of my devices. ITunes & iBooks can only be on the Apple devices.
Love this app (by tootdflute on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 14:47:00)
I prefer a physical book in my hand but use my kindle app on my iPad a lot. I can generally find any title I'm looking for and it downloads seamlessly. I only wish I could still download books directly from the app as I used to when the app first became available.
Very good App (by 1958MusicAppreciater on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 13:35:00)
Kindle on iPhone is great! Practically everything can be adjusted. A little refinements on searches and if you reread a book it won't track it. But for the most part a darn good app.
Love it! (by lizhuntdesigner on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 13:05:00)
I use this app literally everyday! I love it! There are a couple ui issues I would like to be changed, but overall I'm so happy to not have to cart books around and be able to just read directly on my phone or iPad! I totally recommend this app to anyone who enjoys reading!
Love it (by Planner for me on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 12:30:00)
Able to carry all of my books in my back pocket. Love screen
Kindle works! (by Don bonner on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 11:14:00)

I don't know what I'd do without it! (by Minnieme313 on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 06:24:00)
This is such an amazing app and it runs like a dream on my IPad. The magazines from the newsstand are always crisp and easy to read. The instant gratification of seeing my downloaded books waiting for me the minute I buy them is terrific.
Great app (by clv2012 on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 05:45:00)

KINDLE APP IS A MUST HAVE (by Yahnyan 💊 on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 04:38:00)
I love my kindle app it takes up so much of my time in a positive way. I have always been able to find exactly what books im looking for and the app itself is flawless! It never force closes or losses my place in the book. Very satisfied 😍
Free App, great service and utility (by AB4O on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 04:30:00)
Since I was jealous of my wife's Kindle Fire, it was refreshing that I can use the free app and have a better Kindle in the iPad, than the kindle is on its own. If I could give it 10 stars I would.
Love it (by Jenny Foo Foo on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 04:11:00)
Have the app on my iPad and my boys' too. We all love it. So far no problems and it's been a couple years.

Kindle (by LadyLanie on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 02:09:00)
Love it. When I'm on the go, I can read my book on my iPhone. At home, I use my iPad and can pick up right where I left off.
Flashlight reading (by Losing My Marbles on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 01:32:00)
As a child I read into to wee hours of the morning hidden under the covers with my flashlight. As an adult I don't have to hid under the covers, but my Kindle App on my IPad makes it easy to feed my compulsive reading habit without disturbing my spouse. I appreciate the option to add audible narration so that I can take my book to the car. Good improvements would be to add the ability to sort and group my library by category and complete purchases from within the app.
Love it but wish it had... (by JJKNAPP52904 on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 01:02:00)
I wish every book had real page numbers and would tell you how many pages were left in each chapter. I also wish that the app had an auto brightness adjuster. iBooks has both of these features and I absolutely love them! Definitely worth considering in the new version!
Kindle forever (by Evilantie on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 23:42:00)
I love my kindle I love my phone I love reading on my phone ! I have no a space for physical books so I always have room for my kindle.
Best App (by Zoe in Tennessee on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 23:25:00)
This is the app that I use, and enjoy, most. Reliable, easy to adjust font size and well organized. Kindle makes reading e-books effortless.
Really good (by mp1693 on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 23:18:00)
The kindle app looks very nice and is a favorite of mine. The book prices on Amazon are lower than the physical version of the book.
Love it! (by Robbie93552 on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 23:07:00)
I have been using the kindle app for about three years and five different phones. It's reliable and consistent.
I rarely write reviews but... (by Anais9024 on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 22:57:00)
I rarely write reviews, but I tend to read a lot on iPad and iPhone more than kindle. I still use my kindle but when I'm at work on laying down this app is handy to read on my iPhone and not big like the kindle and iPad. And now I can download and search for books using my iPhone through the app! Score! ^___^ I fully recommend it if you enjoy books.
Long time Kindle owner, brand new iPad owner, and love this app (by ClintonDyches on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 22:43:00)
I've had Kindles for years - and have thousands of Kindle eBooks in my library. But I purchased an iPad Air 2 about six weeks ago, downloaded this app and found that I much prefer using my iPad to read my Kindle purchases than on my 300dpi Kindle. And I can see color illustrations and photos now. This is a must have app for Kindle users who have iPads as well.
Good but not perfect (by thillson on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 21:23:00)
The kindle application is very good for reading, but not perfect for reading eBooks. There are what I consider serious short coming. You can not delete book you got and do not like. You can not sort books by date they were published. Their are many more problems to list them all.
Swapping pages (by Vonuss on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 21:03:00)
I use this app for the majority of my reading. Swapping between pages is sometimes problematic because the app shoves more or less writing on the previous page. Once you finish a book-the furthest page is the end, so if you are using two devices, they have to have service or internet available and verified before updating or syncing. If you read ahead on one device; then use the other, but exit before syncing, the device you are using says the updated mark is from the previous device even if it is not where you are currently. The program also really likes to highlight or check the word definition when you are about to swap pages. This is mostly operator error, but when you're really into it, it gets annoying.
No problems! (by Older Deb on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 21:03:00)
I love that I can take my kindle library with me on all my devices. I love my new IPod touch and I was afraid that the kindle app would not sync well with my kindle fire. I am so happy that I was proven wrong! My books are always synced and I have no wait time when I add a new title. Everything has been perfect and I can give it 5 stars with no hesitation!
Lifesaver! (by Y Flores on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 20:56:00)
I recently went on a 4 day trip and accidentally left my Kindle at home. Thought I would actually have to buy a book. Then I remembered the app on my phone! Wonderful! Works perfectly!
Pretty good- could be better (by Leshrum on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 19:56:00)
I would give 5 stars if only you could sort and organize, maybe add lists of your books.
Best kept library ever (by Latresas12. on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 19:51:00)
Awesome way to carry all my books on my tablet, phones, computer... Anywhere! I can also file them in various ways to find my books easy. I love it!
Not syncing since Feb 16th update (by Reviewer - MT on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 19:46:00)
I have an iPhone 6 and the app now refuses to sync. All it keeps doing is spinning and it never updates to add my new books. It’s almost useless to me at this point.
Multiple devices (by Camino Peregrino 47 on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 19:24:00)
I love the ability with the Kindle app to be able to read where ever jam with only one device that I may have being it my phone, IPad or Kindle
Review (by Daisy girl 80 on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 19:12:00)
I just downloaded this app for my iphone 4 and I love it!! So easy to use and easy to download the books to your phone.
Kindle review (by Donne K on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 18:39:00)
Love my kindle app! Use it all the time to read free ebooks.
Love It!!! (by Q&3girls on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 18:38:00)
I love the kindle app. I have it downloaded on every device I own. I love the way you can read in the same spot on any device.
Love it! (by B'schmoo on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 18:17:00)
I couldn't be happier with this app. It loads instantly. It performs very well and stores to device or cloud. It's easy to permanently delete the disappointing reads. The reviews are honest and helpful. It's my best non-organic friend.
Kindle app really good (by Saraswathi mukkai on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 17:57:00)
I have used the kindle app on iphone to read a number of books. Really love the interface. However would like to have a specific button to move to the next chapter directly without always using the TOC to access chapters.
No Problems for Me :-) (by CatsnCoffee on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 17:31:00)
So far I've had no issues with the update my Kindle works very well in my iPad Air 2. For some having a problem with the page numbers not all books give you the page number some just give you the sentence and percentage of the book read...
Enjoying the App (by 2unik on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 17:09:00)
I enjoy using this app as I am always ready to read and this app provides me that opportunity. I'm not that tech savvy so with the ease of use I am able to do what I enjoy doing without flipping pages lol.
Great App (by Rocketguy321 on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 16:56:00)
I've been using the app on my iPhone for several years and love it. I just wish I could order new books without leaving the app. Seems dumb that you can do in app purchases for everything else but the Kindle app.
DO NOT UPDATE (by Brit.nanny on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 16:52:00)
This update stops the sync from working. After being on the phone with customer service, the issue was still not resolved. It takes me close to 10 minutes per book to get in on to the app. I also wish there was a way to save documents to the cloud.
My Kindle (by Dab1121 on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 16:09:00)
I am an voracious reader. Anything I can get my hands on. While I love the written page I also love my Kindle. I roam Amazon for books, purchase, and download. I buy my printed books from B&N. I have the best of both worlds. However, that being said, I wish they would bring back the pagination on my kindle books. Hate that time and percentage reference.
Great app (by StormyBud on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 15:48:00)
I have a Kindle 2 and use this app on my iPhone and IPad 2. I enjoy having my books with me whenever I want to read. I will listen to them during road trips if the road is too bumpy to allow me to read. Using it on my iPad I just have to make sure I am on wi-fi to synch. If for some reason I don't have it where I am I will just make note of the location so I don't lose my place when switching devices. Thanks for a great app.
I love kindle. (by Yacsies on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 19:58:00)
I loooooove it. I love reading. I love kindle unlimited. I love it!! If I could make one suggestion, I would love to return my unlimited kindle from the app.
I can't live without it !! (by Donnut/Niikiee on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 19:28:00)
I'm always reading on my phone, my vision literally got worse because of it ( not funny at all ) but is like I can't help myself 😁😁😁 I love this app and I appreciate that someone thought of making it for phones ❤️❤️❤️ <--- that was a few years ago ! But seriously I still love the app it keeps getting better and better ! It's my life 😘😘❤️
Awesome (by tc anyway on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 19:14:00)
No doubt, this app is the best e-reader available!!!!! 😃
Kindle review (by Laconda on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 19:11:00)
I love my kindle, my kindle app. Whoever invented the kindle, are genius.
Decent reading app (by Thatstakn2 on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 19:06:00)
Wish they had the ability to save an author and to search for next book in a series from within the app. And to have customizable categories like fantasy etc that you could put the book into and to see it on a shelf like display when opening up the app.
Love kindle for iPhone (by Dragonfly0512 on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 18:54:00)
It gets stuck on occasion but I love having kindle for my iPhone. Makes reading convenient wherever I am
All right, but not easy to manage your library (by Mucho bettah! on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 18:50:00)
The App works all right, but the library is similar to dumping all you physical books into a heap on the floor. Very hard to keep serial volumes straight, and forget about grouping by genre. My biggest annoyance is you have to touch the screen to turn the page. Why not use the tilt sensor? Tilt sharply right to turn forward, tilt left sharply to go back a page.
Love my kindle (by Basketcath on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 18:01:00)
I love my kindle! I really like that I can link it to my iPhone. It's great when you're stuck waiting at appointments.
Kindle App (by graceszoo on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 17:54:00)
I love this app! I have it on several devices . I don't watch TV so I read every chance I get but mostly on my phone because it is compact,easy to take and use everywhere thank.
Revolutionized how I read books (by Lgbstaley on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 17:39:00)
This app has worked flawlessly. And, it has given me the option to always have a book with me.
Still Needs Immersion reading with real-time highlighting (by N/A 1234 on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:30:00)
When will Immersion reading **with real-time highlighting** be available like it is on the kindle e-readers? You've only implemented half of the immersion feature.. Please finish the real time highlighting piece! It really does improve the comprehension and retention for complex subjects. Why is this not completed? Did someone write poor requirements or incomplete acceptance criteria for building the new functionality? Helpful? Vote below!
Update won't sustain all book marks or read pages (by OrangyE on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:16:00)
Everytime I update the app, my entire library needs to be reloaded from the cloud again. That is a time consuming thing to do. Not only that, my highlights and bookmarks won't stay. They just disappear, like I never read that book before.
Awsome (by Torteto on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:16:00)
Need to get it .it is awsome all cool books
Kindle app is pretty good (by CKM79 on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 02:58:00)
This app is pretty good, but it does not always sinc well between devices. This is especially true when uses the app and my kindle to read the same book. It is also annoying that you can't purchase books from the app. Other than that, it is great.
Sync failure (by Matherstguy on Tue, 17 Feb 2015 12:33:00)
This update disabled my"sync between devices" feature and the page/location information as well as percent read is all wrong. Kindle for iPad 😞
Love it (by AuntieM1 on Tue, 17 Feb 2015 03:48:00)
I love to read. I also love to collect patterns. So this has worked out perfect for me. Everywhere I go I have a project at hand.

Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 601th to 650th
Watch Out When Updating (by SueChooses on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 21:10:00)
I refuse to update my Kindle for iPad to this newest version, 4.7.1. Why? When they recently updated to 4.7, I emailed them, very upset that the page numbers, or location, had disappeared from the lower left corner of each page, leaving only the stupid time left in the book or chapter (totally dumb) in its place, and the only way to find the location or page number was to tap the middle of the bottom of the page. Then once you went to the next page, that page info disappeared again. Ridiculous! Is an eBook supposed to read like a real book, or not? I received an email quickly in reply, telling me several people had complained about the problem, and that they would work to fix it. It took a few days, but it was fixed and is fine now. So, they just came up with version 4.7.1, and my husband downloaded it to test it, and they have again REMOVED the page or location numbers from the lower left corner, and once again you can only view them by tapping the lower middle of the page! Then once you turn the page, the info is gone again! I can't believe they fixed a problem many complained about, only to turn right around with a new update which unfixes it. I will not update to 4.7.1.
Overall really good! (by Grammatical Bust on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 20:53:00)
It's a really good app and it's easy!
Unfiltered (by newheavennewearth on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 02:33:00)
And with one update, you made a bunch of unwanted porn books easily viewable. Where are my filter settings, and why don't they work in Kindle? Please make a filter option.
Mrs. ReadAllDay (by Streetwear on Tue, 17 Feb 2015 22:42:00)
I love the kindle app! That's how I read all my books, I tried the Nook & it doesn't measure up to the kindle app!
Samples now take longer (by Yodfat on Tue, 17 Feb 2015 18:36:00)
Honestly I find it utterly annoying that there is now an added step before you can download a sample from the Kindle app. Takes longer to download several samples. Not happy.
Thanks for fixing crashing problem. Next time don't messed up! (by Sherap6 on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 19:45:00)
Now i can see my calculus book. Thanks for fixing. Everytime before updating, try to remember Calculus 7e, James Stewart, early trans. Thank you.
Love it (by Rozruns86 on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 15:32:00)
I'm a little bummed they took away the in-app purchase of books though. Especially since the Amazon app doesn't support the purchase of kindle books either. Meaning I have to go to safari, get on Amazon.com and do it that way...#firstworldproblems I know I know haha
Broken (by ooCHUMoo on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 14:08:00)
This update crashes whenever I try to open a textbook. v4.6 worked okay.
Great app! (by Fyitmn on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 12:06:00)
I love having my books at my neck and call anywhere and anytime. The kindle app works consistently and I never have problems.
Disappointed (by ChiemelaBrownVanilla on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 11:02:00)
I wish I didn't update this app! This does not open certain books & textbooks especially. This doesn't work on my mobile device or on windows 8. I have been through the ringer with Amazon trying to fix this problem. 2 hours on the phone deleting, deactivate ing, installing, and downloading the app and each book. I use this app to read for classes on the go but this app has put a block in my path. Save precious space on your electronics and don't waste your time with this app and Amazon products if your in school. Truly frustrating!
Keeps crashing (by Carpboy1228 on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 10:53:00)
New update on iPad and iPhone keeps crashing when you try to open a book. Fix this!!
Very bad user experience (by yyiheng on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 06:03:00)
... User experience is too bad... First of all, the app icon is ugly. The background is just a dark gray color...which is ugly... I'm trying to purchase some Chinese book from Amazon.cn and read them in this App, I got a book, open it in kindle app, the book uses a not very good font, not pleasing to read, the background color is bright white, while it shouldn't because it's not good for the eyes-- beige or light grey will be a lot better. And there is a pause when flip the page... So during the reading it's like, pause-flip. pause- flip....I really can't stand for it....overall, they need better designers to improve user experience...
CONSTANT CRASH TEXTBOOKS ARE NOW USELESS (by sanDiegoChae03 on Mon, 16 Feb 2015 01:29:00)
I can't read my textbooks using my iPad. The last update only makes iPad & iPhone good if you want to read novels. If you're using your iPad to read textbooks...DON'T UPDATE. I left a more detailed review yesterday but somehow it never showed up 👀👀👀
Really bad (by Élias de Kelliwic’h on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 14:30:00)
This app is barely doing the job. I am basically using it because some books are cheaper than iBooks Store, but man, this app is a mess. Update a book and you will lose your notes. Highlighting text is just a nightmare. I have to try dozen times before the App understand I don't want to go back or forward and select the text. Overall a clunky experience. I thought that Kindle was better than Apple, but it's def not the case.
Porn with new book browser (by istuart45 on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 13:21:00)
Not happy they added a browser built in with full access to lots of pornographic books. I guess kindle is gone for my family for a while. There is no way to control this or lock a child out of it.
Kindle ~ my travel friend (by Haddjtrbfjd on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 11:40:00)
Anywhere I go, my kindle for iPhone goes with me. I ready anywhere and everywhere. Free books are amazing. I occasionally spend some money, but I go for the free books. Sometimes they surprise me!! Love the kindle!
No more reading speed (by Mercedes791 on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 06:21:00)
I love the kindle app. I read on it at least a dozen times a day but with this new update I'm annoyed. It no longer has the reading speed function. This is something I always used to give me an idea of how much time it would take to sneak in a chapter here or there. Seeing this feature gone is seriously disappointing!!!
Update broke footer!! (pg numb) (by Vmurp on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 04:56:00)
This update broke the ability to toggle between page numbers, location and time left in chapter/book.
Sync isn't working (by Tikorama on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 04:05:00)
I love this app and use it all the time BUT the current version won't let me sync to add new books. Since I read a book or two a week this is a big issue for me! I might have to go plug in and charge my old kindle device so I can keep reading...bummer :-(
Constantly Crashes Crashes 👎👎😡😡 (by sanDiegoChae03 on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 02:22:00)
I wish I could give no stars. This app does nothing but crash. I thought this update would help solve the lllloooonnnnggggg loading time but no, this update made this app totally useless. If you use this app for textbooks, DONT UPDATE. If you read romance novels this problem won't affect you. FIX IT AMAZON 😡😡😡😡😡😡💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Would love it more with just one improvement (by SwissMind on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 01:55:00)
Great reading app with an awesome selection of books. I wish thou I could manually arrange my books and categorize them according to genres. Where is the History category in you book browser?
Beware of update! Textbooks Crash! (by KateC27 on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 21:12:00)
I can't open my kindle textbook without the app crashing down to the home screen every single time I try! Beyond frustrating. This is happening on both my iPhone and iPad. I need this book daily to study! I see this isn't just happening to me, but to lots of people who have written 1 star reviews and to people on the Amazon help forums. It seems to be just a textbook issue only. I need this fixed! I wish I never updated. I have wasted several days worth of studying now. I don't have that luxury in nursing school! Update: I spent 45 minutes on the phone with the help desk troubleshooting to no avail. They made me do things like reinstall and reboot multiple times- like I hadn't considered that in the 4 days I've been trying to access the textbook I purchased! They claimed to have not heard of this problem, even though it's all over the Internet. I'm going to end up having to get a refund on my e-book and ordering the paperback, for more money and 2 more wasted days of studying while it is shipped. It's really unfortunate because I purchased an e-book for a reason- I wanted to be able to study on the go. You would think a company like Amazon would have thousands of IT guys that could fix a bug in a reasonable time.
App-solutely Great (by MsNea on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 19:07:00)
I've been using the kindle app for years now and love it. I especially love how it quickly syncs my placement within a book so if I don't have have my physical Kindle I won't loose my place. Love it
Crashing constantly (by alienxkiller on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 13:30:00)
On both my iPhone and my iPad. Tried reinstalling no luck. My mid terms on Tuesday and I have no way to read my book because I'm not near a computer this week end.
Great app but... (by bsgvfl on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 13:29:00)
Love the app but the search feature won't work at all in the bookstore. Should be an easy fix for the developers...
Amazing (by I Can't Find a Good Username on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 12:48:00)
Awesome app, just needs page numbers at the top of the pages. Back cover would be awesome too.
New update (by Seabeedad on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 11:21:00)
Search portion is awful, if I type " Stephen King" don't you think it should have at least first relevance? Nope. I have to schlock through every other thing they're trying to sell me. And it got worse when I tried sorting. Yuck
Love it (by Watermelon2181 on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 10:11:00)
It's the only app I use to read my books :)
Just updated, now it freezes (by 900gorillas on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 03:07:00)
Most recent update has frozen kindle on my iPad. Won't open books, just freezes. Not good.
CRASHES (by Adero26N on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 00:27:00)
I can't read the textbooks that I recently got. One that I bought and the other rented. When I click on them the app takes a long time to load then then before they can open it crashes. I thought it was because I hadn't updated my iPad so I did with no help. I tried restarting my iPad, de-registering my device and re-registering it, and deleting and reinstalling the app. Nothing is working! I have the 4.7 version. I know it's the app because I can access the books on my PC (I have them on my iPad for a reason, computers do not make for good reading). I have several other books that I can access on the app so I'm guessing the problem is recent. This needs to be fixed, idk who thought it was a good idea to do this update mid-semester!?!?
Best update yet (by funkybug on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 21:46:00)
Been waiting for a synopsis to be added in somewhere. Love 'book details' briiliant. Only wish the synopsis was at the top instead of the absolute bottom. But love it all the same.
Keeps crashing! (by Monkeymama8910 on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 21:18:00)
This app was great until I updated it yesterday. Now it crashes as soon as I click on the book I want to open. I need this app to work so that I can read my textbooks for school! Fix this!
Great!!! But... (by PH062909 on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 21:01:00)
This is my most used app on all the devices. IMO, this app is far superior than the competition. However, since the last update, I am not able to scroll through the different footers (page, location, time remaining in chapter, time remaining in book). The footer appears to be stuck on whichever I had selected prior updating. Please fix!!! Nevertheless, this app provides a great user experience. Thumbs up for immersion reading.
Amazon Password and Name (by Flutterapplesparklerarpie dash on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 20:10:00)
First of I was looking for a simple book app and spotted this so I got it and it said you need a A Mason passcode and name so was so made!X( and I just wanted to get a simple book app to read Diary of a wimpy kid books and stuff so what if you change that to your email address and passcode or of its a kid's device without one they can just make a profile (For Example:like Netflix) and there you make a passcode for that profile with 5 words and you get to only make 6 profiles or something like that ! Thx 4 reAding this Amazon and Kindle!
Can't cleanly organize collections (by Fashaezzle on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 18:56:00)
The app lets you categorize ebooks but ALSO leaves them outside of the category so you cannot clean up your display by putting them in categories. For this reason, I buy my books in iBooks whenever possible. If Amazon allowed for cleaner organization, it would probably be my go-to app.
Crashes (by KateC27 on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 18:30:00)
I can't open my kindle e-textbook at all without the app crashing back down to the home screen every single time I try! Beyond frustrating. This is happening on both my iPhone and iPad. Guess I won't be studying today.

Thank you (by Sue415 on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 12:54:00)
I have used the Kindle app since I got my first iPad. Just got the newest upgrade and the first thing I noticed is that, once again, it keeps the books I am reading in the order in which I have been reading them. Seems a small thing, but one I really appreciate because it lets me know just which ones I have been reading and in what order. Don't know if this was just in this upgrade yesterday, but I have missed it. Love this app and have lots of books on it. Also like the ability to put books into collections according to how I want to sort them. Much easier to find them in the cloud than when they were in one huge list. Wish you could bring back the ability to once again just purchase books inside the app itself. But expect that is under Apple's control.
Kindle on the go. . . Awesome! (by Soledd on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 02:42:00)
Having kindle in every mobile devise is so convenient. And their sync is really helpful. I don't have to worry where i stop reading while using any devise; kindle tracks down the bookmark all i have to do is keep reading.
App keeps crashing (by Podcast hobo on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 00:29:00)
I keep trying to read my book i rented for homework and to my surprise it keeps crashing after your recent update Thanks amazon I always enjoy not being able to access a text book i bought

I love having the kindle app on my phone and iPad. Best way to pass time when waiting at appointments and such. Love it.
Crashing (by Mamp412 on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 22:30:00)
Crashes constantly and amazon help desk is useless. Please fix!! I need my books on the go for school between work and my kids! Worked fine before update.
No more "time left in book" (by Linklisa on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 20:42:00)
The latest version on iPhone is stuck on "time left in chapter". It used to be that tapping on that would cycle to other options. What happened?
Book browser broken (by Celeste_Tsukino on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 19:29:00)
Book browser is not currently working so giving this a 1-star until it's fixed.
Love the kindle app! (by Zoye on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 18:46:00)
I always have my phone with me so with the app I always have my books with me. I love it!
No page numbers (by Spiritjds1 on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 18:32:00)
Would give it 5 stars if there were page numbers like the book it self. When doing a study with others who have the hard book I get lost.
It's a good app but buying is a pain in the butt (by Whits_world on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 16:34:00)
I like the sample book to check it out but, there's no option to buy, just add it to the wish list. Nothing about account sign in or to buy it, that I could find. Being an Amazon product it would be connect with account in some way. It could be because I'm on an iPad.

Good App (by Edoug9 on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 12:04:00)
App was great until the last update. Now the app crashes every time I try to open books that I am renting for school. Please fix this problem. I see that I am not the only one having this problem.
Great App! (by Cashwize on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 07:36:00)
I have So Enjoyed the ability to read the books on Kindle on my iPad! I don't believe I will be reading a paperback for a long time! LOL
Crash issue (by davidzhongapple on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 05:01:00)
Crashes every time when opening certain pdf file
Bad update (by Anonymous Christmas on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 04:13:00)
Since the update my college texts crash the app, which I need especially this week since its finals week. Terrible timing. And it's only my school books. Why is that?!
Textbook not working? Amazon fails to help (by Nobdysangel on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 03:19:00)
My textbook won't open and amazons help desk can't fix the issue! It worked just fine before the update, way to screw over students!

I only read from my Kindle! Take it with me everywhere--even bed! So much lighter than a book!
Book Browser Needs A Fixin'! (by charityamis on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 23:22:00)
I was so excited for book browser, but I haven't been able to download any books. So broken, please fix.
My favorite app (by Cajun sushi girl on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 21:37:00)
I've had the Kindle app for over 3 years, yes it has had its ups and downs but for the most part I love it. There are tons of free books and the customer service has always been nice and helpful. I have a kindle but the app on my iPhone and iPod are what I use the most because they can fit in my pocket or purse and not take up much room. If your having trouble finding your books I have found that if you sync the app a couple of times they will show up, it's under the new book browser icon. I have over 5000 books across multiple devices so I know what your talking about when you can't find a book.
Add a view of the back of the book (by Min.ne.snow.ta nice on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 20:46:00)
Perfect app it's just missing the back cover -- I would love it u would add a pic of the back cover because I like having a summery and that's normally located on the back cover. Sometimes I forget what a books about and have to google it- with a paper copy u can read the back
Great App!!!! (by sdeskie on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 20:25:00)
Only one I use to read with!
Keeps crashing... (by ttiff15wakeboards on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 20:14:00)
I don't know if it's my phone or if it's something I'm doing, but every single time I attempt to open a book in the app it crashes on me... Please fix it asap.
Favorite App (by RosieBella1971 on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 19:56:00)
Since giving away my Kindle, I use this app religiously. Mac, iPhone, iPad. Thank you for this app!
Normally a great app (by Mystyph on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 19:41:00)
Please fix the ability to highlight
Wonderful App 😄 (by Jennifer Crawford on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 19:38:00)
When my gram bought me an iPad, I was kind a worried that I would not be able to read my ebooks on it, due to the iPad being through Apple and not Amazon. The gentlemen that was helping my gram decide between an iPad for me or a Kindle Fire HD told her that there was a Kindle App that was free and I would still be able to read my books that way. So I told my gram to go ahead and get the iPad and I would figure out the App situation. I'm very happy to say that this App is as good as my Kindle Fire. But I do have one complaint about this App. I am not able to download the ebooks from Amazon without having to get on a desk top computer. I would LOVE if sometime in the near future to be able to download ebooks through the app instead of having to get on a desk top computer to do it. But besides that the app is WONDERFUL!

Cannot open books on my iPhone.
Keeps Crashing (by The Ruler Of Earth on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 19:13:00)
One particular book keeps crashing my app. Please fix
Love this app! (by 69mustanglady on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 18:19:00)
I love this app. I've had a Nook for several years but had an iPhone but hated that small screen so I never bought many Kindle books until I bought my iPad. Know I can purchase my books for Kindle or Nook. I've had no problems with this app. Never crashed or anything.
Love it, but (by R7453 on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 15:41:00)
I don't know if this is kindle's problem, but I think it would be better to have page numbers more prominent, at least make it an option to actually have the page numbers in a corner somewhere instead of having to tap the top to get the pages with that little drag thingy where the percentages are. Other than that great app, I like that I can take notes and highlight things very useful.
Book Browser in iPhone! (by David Foltz on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 14:56:00)
Yay for book browser on iPhone! Thanks, Amazon. Keep it up!
What book browser? (by rafael_rms on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 14:54:00)
Just updated the app in my devices (iphone and ipad) and I am not seeing this book browser anywhere. I can only get book samples. And I have Kindle unlimited for about a month.
Love the app. (by Nsoj on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 14:15:00)
One improvement would be nice. When I use the bookmark, and I want to go to it, there isn't a way to go there from the front of the book.
CRASHES WITH UPDATE (by JHPeanut on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 13:19:00)
App crashes with update (2/11/15). Can't load book I already have downloaded. Was able to load yesterday before updating.
Why the time limit on a purchased e-book? (by ForeverSearchingForWiFi on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 13:11:00)
I generally love the app, but I recently purchased an e-book and am noticing a time countdown in the lower left corner on my iPhone 6. I worry that if I run out of time, Amazon will lock my book, which would be unacceptable!
Great App Needs One More Thing (by Ann's Husband, Glen on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 12:41:00)
This marvelous app needs one more improvement: the ability to add cover images to materials we import that do not have a cover — such as articles, reports, etc.
Great! (by Juliamarie28 on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 05:28:00)
It's free, it works well, and it's accessible on most mobile devices. If you don't have a kindle, I highly suggest it!
I can't read my etextbook (by Renyuedward on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 03:41:00)
Before I update this time. I can read my account textbook on free kindle app. But now I can't read it more. Please fix it as soon as possible....
Books are gone! (by slkriderchick on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 02:57:00)
Book browser really screwed up my library. 3/4 of my books are gone and are not found in the icloud or in the device and changing accounts didn't help either. Wishing I hadn't done the book browser now. Not happy at all with this....
Still Needs Immersion reading with real-time highlighting (by N/A 1234 on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 02:09:00)
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.. Please finish the real time highlighting piece! It really does improve the comprehension and retention for complex subjects. Why is this not completed? Did someone write poor requirements or incomplete acceptance criteria for building the new functionality? Helpful? Vote below!
Great idea! (by Fausron on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 23:24:00)
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, nice!
Finally!! (by Pegasus2131 on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 19:45:00)
Love the new update!! It's about time you can search for books within the app! Thanks! 😄
It's okay (by Joce1999 on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 18:21:00)
For iPhone users I would suggest using iBooks. You can lookup books and get them for free
Pricing (by Patricia Shipp on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 18:00:00)
It doesn't say if the books that we download on the app are free. It doesn't quote a price when downloading. I would hate to keep downloading books thinking that they're free then get a huge bill. I understand that the app is free to download, but are the book downloads free? Please answer! Thanks.
App (by Bob Rumpson on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 16:55:00)
The app is great for reading a book on my i-Pad and i-Phone.
Kindle book purchase (by Bunnyohare on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 14:28:00)
When I try to delete sample it archives it. What's the point of that???? Fix it please.
My constant companion (by ChristyLarson567 on Mon, 09 Feb 2015 14:43:00)
Having access to an entire library wherever I go has been fabulous. All the free and low cost titles that are available from Amazon have stretched my book budget immensely! More to read for less money and it fits in my pocket! My deepest thanks to the creators!
Can't stop Sync (by Jaykeblues on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 22:45:00)
Love the app but it recently started downloading everything I just purchased. In the past it would only download which ever book I wanted at the time. De registered, removed the app, re-installed the app, re-registered and it still starts downloading everything. Had 76 books downloaded and going strong. Had to stop wiFi at that point and delete most.
Can't get my books (by troy hansen on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 21:59:00)
downloaded the app for quick access when I don't have my kindle. Tried to get my book collection and it says I don't own any books and won't show them
Love reading using the kindle app! (by Matman113 on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 16:04:00)
Easy to use, different sized fonts, night view and opening exactly where I left off. So many great features to use.
Missing ability to clip, annotate, or highlight, or share (by recohen on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 08:52:00)
This app is missing major functionality, such as the ability to clip , mark favorites, annotate, or highlight. Why is this app crippled? These are simple things to add.
Over the years, this has become a great application. (by ikt on Sat, 07 Feb 2015 05:28:00)
The Kindle app has retained the simple functionality it started with, and added useful features to it over the years. It's a bummer when an app gets updated for no reason, changes things just to change them, eventually the app just dies and fades away ehem Pulse I mean you! But kindle has avoided these traps. I do find the "before you go" thing annoying. When I'm done reading, I'm done and I don't want to do any reviews or buy anything. I don't work for Amazon, I'm not going to spend time doing what they tell me to do.
Dictionary (by Mimi cho on Sat, 07 Feb 2015 03:29:00)
Please install Korean American dictionary
Pdf issues (by DoodlebugDude on Fri, 06 Feb 2015 06:31:00)
I was always unhappy with the inabililty to rename PDF files for this app. I like to keep my textbooks and all the files my teachers upload for us to read in a single place (I use a collection for each class). It's been very useful, except when PDFs have random names that I can't change. With the most recent update, Iit's even worse. Now, every single PDF is labelled "no job name" and there's no way to change it. The thumbnails are not big enough to tell them apart, and it's become entirely useless.
Love it (by Vina DeEtte on Thu, 05 Feb 2015 21:56:00)
Love this app to death!
Lost books w new device (by MLisme on Thu, 05 Feb 2015 20:38:00)
Disappointed my previously purchased books won't synch with new tablet, lost many title. Support was no help. I deleted the app and reinstalled. Did not help. I don't see them on Amazon page now either, odd. Thought once purchased, ours for life. Thought wrong.
Wonderful (by RonWoos on Thu, 05 Feb 2015 12:52:00)
The Kindle app is a wonderful way to keep reading material right in my hand, and it is lighter than most of the books that I pick up at my library. And the icing on the cake is that I can also store my knitting patterns in it rather than having to carry loose pages around!
Can't buy books on iPhone (by Nbpdave on Thu, 05 Feb 2015 12:00:00)
The app is clunky and not user friendly for iPhone users
It's Ok (by MacBabe1 on Thu, 05 Feb 2015 07:04:00)
Major flaw - not being able to grab content from within the app. Majorly annoying. Minor flaw - not being able to easily get rid of content when you're done with it.
OK. Not fabulous (by Jamaica Blue on Thu, 05 Feb 2015 00:19:00)
Works well enough, but I can’t warm up to e-readers. I find them limiting, not liberating, but I’m reading at a phone format & I’m sure the experience would be better on an iPad. There are some glitches in this app, & I can’t rave as some people do, though it works. Page turning is frustrating. Highlighting is not as easy as it ought to be.
Great app, a further idea for developers (by infamousginger on Wed, 04 Feb 2015 22:48:00)
I love the Kindle app onipad and I read all my books on it. Love the dictionary when I don't know a word. How about this idea? Have the option to have a tiny clock in text while you are reading and letting time slip away. How many folks reading on their 15 minute break would love this?
Great App! But please add... (by Jer_Jer on Wed, 04 Feb 2015 15:19:00)
Love the app. Actually makes reading enjoyable. But could you please consider adding a scrolling function when reading. It would be nice to have the scrolling as a choice so that when reading, it's how I would would for online articles. Gives my eye a better guide for speed reading.

Need "Kindle for Dummies" (by Carolyn Marlowe on Tue, 03 Feb 2015 23:01:00)
I love the app, especially the convenience of carrying a plethora of books with me all the time. I simply have to spend more time taking tutorials about using Kindle. I panic every time I want to reference information earlier in the book. Without page numbers, I can spend an hour trying to find what I'm looking for and then find my "bookmarked" location.
Love this app! (by Feeltricked on Tue, 03 Feb 2015 18:46:00)
Allows me to access my books anywhere & anytime I want!
Kindle (by H express on Tue, 03 Feb 2015 17:43:00)
I really like this app because I can read any book when out I am having to wait or just decide to read on the iPhone.
Crashes (by Mom/teacher2 on Mon, 02 Feb 2015 23:10:00)
I love using the app. It's very easy to navigate, easy to upload books to it. But, it frequently puts my iPad into sleep mode while I'm reading. Sometimes I can read for an hour with no problems, other times it puts the ipad in sleep mode 10 times while reading for an hour. It can get very annoying.
Kindle (by noeds5 on Mon, 02 Feb 2015 11:17:00)
Really enjoy using kindle to read my books...easy to purchase new reading material and access no matter what device I use to read my books.
I LOVE THIS KINDLE APP! (by Gidge67 on Sun, 01 Feb 2015 22:51:00)
If I forget my Kindle at home or work-the app works just as well! I never leave home without my phone -so the app is always with me!!
No Family Share (by Daviathon on Sun, 01 Feb 2015 02:54:00)
I have been doing research for hours now on the new Amazon Shared Libraries. I have successfully shared my library content with another Amazon account. However, the iPhone app does not show anything other than the purchased content on the original account. Using the website, I have delivered the content to my device, with it stating that it was successful. Nothing is ever sent to my iPhone. Many websites claim that it works for new Amazon devices AND 3rd party apps. I am unable to verify this, as it hasn't worked for me. I'm guessing that this is so that people will buy Amazon devices. Oh well, I'll just have to buy Game of Thrones twice.
Is this free books (by Jackie123! on Sat, 31 Jan 2015 19:03:00)
I don't know if the books are free I don't want to buy a book
Kindle is stupid (by Boo!😒 on Sat, 31 Jan 2015 17:23:00)
I think it is stupid that you have to already have an amazon account to get in and it doesn't give you the choice to make one yourself.
Highlighting spotty (by Rod.Gomez on Sat, 31 Jan 2015 15:28:00)
Other than the inability to highlight without closing and reopening, the app is great.
Can't download (by 南飞 on Sat, 31 Jan 2015 14:39:00)
I don't know why I am not able to download books any more! Can someone help?
Current version is full of bugs (by Michelle773 on Sat, 31 Jan 2015 01:10:00)
Since updating the app, I can't even open my books--the app just crashes before it even finishes loading. I've tried closing the app, restarting my iPad, and resetting my iPad, but it just won't let me read my books. And that's kind of the whole point.
Not good as e-ink kindle (by Damnreg on Fri, 30 Jan 2015 23:28:00)
No font choices,the integrated one-for-all font is far from good.
Extremely disappointed (by Orange moth on Fri, 30 Jan 2015 23:26:00)
If you like high-lighting passages or using word definitions, these features DO NOT work using the newest version of the Kindle app on newly downloaded books on my air2ipad. No help is available at Amazon support
My app keeps shutting off (by Ebeautye on Fri, 30 Jan 2015 14:20:00)

I have used the kindle app for 3 years and have never had a problem. This is a wonderful app and I won't even get a book if it's not compatible, which I have found are next to nil.

Keeps freezing up (by Weighty on Wed, 28 Jan 2015 13:16:00)
I have used and loved this app for several years, but the latest updates (I assume to accommodate ios8) have made it freeze up. At least once during a reading session, the app will freeze and won't let me turn a page. I have to completely close out of the app and go back in, which is annoying. (And, yes, I am current for iOS updates on my iPad.) Powers That Be, please fix this!
Good but (by Wariner on Wed, 28 Jan 2015 02:49:00)
I love this app, but REALLY. want and need access to the kindle store back! I do not want to just get samples, I want to be able to buy. It is a total pain leaving the app to go to another app to buy something for the first app. I used thar feature a ton and wonder why it was removed?? This was why I avoided updating forever. Please bring back access to full amazon from the app as it used to be. Amazon will make more money from me :)
Help my app (by Pro lite on Wed, 28 Jan 2015 00:05:00)

Rip off (by Samrat Kochhar on Mon, 26 Jan 2015 03:03:00)
App crashes every time I try to read a textbook which I rented for $35. What a waste of money. If I try to open the textbook online it says that it can only be opened in the app and the app crashes so I have no way to read it. Boo Amazon
kindle books app:) (by Koloulou on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 23:27:00)
I'm not missing anything thanks to this app my books are also here through my apple devices. Best app ever!
Adequate at best (by drjwr on Sun, 25 Jan 2015 16:44:00)
Oddly un-intuitive at times, even for a tech savvy person, with buggy browse Amazon bookstore feature (e.g., searching for some titles causes the app to back out several layers); inadequate Amazon booksotre features (e.g., sometimes reader reviews are not available to read, and sometimes no précis given for a book); the inability to buy books through Kindle browse Amazon feature, so that you have to go to the Amazon site directly; and the inability to buy from Amazon website in Kindle store using iPad Air 2 -- you have to go to a computer and buy and download there; and I find iTunes-iBooks a far better alternative .

This version bites (by sadpaneracustomer on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 21:52:00)
You have to have IOS 7, the 4th gen iPods only go to version 6. I can't even install it on an older iPod to read my books. :-(
Wonderful App.!! (by King.Reviews on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 19:37:00)
I have six devices that I can use to pull up my kindle purchases, thanks to the kindle reading app. That makes for plentiful reading options and mobility.
Superior app and functionality (by 1happyfamily on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 14:08:00)
Very reliable and excellent options!
Great app (by Latinbay on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 11:53:00)
I love reading and I thought I would never get used to the non-paper books (e-books), but I def got used to reading with my kindle. It allows me to carry many books in a light weight and small space format. It provides the right light for shine outdoor or dark spaces. This app, kindle for iPad, let me read the same book I have on my kindle but syncs to the furthest readings page when wifi is on. Also I can download any book from my cloud. I find inconvenient that I cannot buy a new book from this app.
Great App (by Fashion Girly! on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 02:59:00)
I love reading and this is the best app for that by far!
Awful (by Titansjunkie on Fri, 23 Jan 2015 20:40:00)
This app is awful! My email account was hacked within minutes of entering my info into the app. I've never had an account hacked. The page turning is too sensitive. You will spend a lot of time flipping back to pages. Too much wasted space around the text that could be used to show more text.
I used to love this app (by Smartgirlsbooks on Thu, 22 Jan 2015 22:35:00)
BRING BACK THE STORE! I used to love shopping and checking out good reviews I am heart broken ;(
Nearly impossible to follow links to footnotes (by Mark and Mari on Thu, 22 Jan 2015 16:25:00)
The Kindle app works great for reading a book without footnotes, but trying to read a book with footnotes is nearly impossible. Tapping the small number is so difficult it is easier to swipe to the end of a chapter to read the footnotes. Maybe a stylus would help, but I do not have a stylus for my iPhone.
WE NEED TO BE ALBLE TO BY STUFF ON THE APP (by Gshoobs on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 20:35:00)
Why Aren't we able to buy books from the app?!?!?! It's really annoying I always need to use my kindle just to buy the book, when I always read on my phone!!! Other than that I love the app.
Great App? (by fredchriskatie on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 19:37:00)
I enjoy reading kindle books. When I go from my IPhone to IPad it takes me where I left off.
Kindle is a noun and a verb (by Soul Detective on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 16:33:00)
I use this more than iBooks for reading. I don't really enjoy reading on my phone or iPad but I'm slowly coming around to it. My main gripe is that I'd like the book's original fonts and layout conserved or at least approximated in the electronic format.
Great app (by Jess97531 on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 13:48:00)
Perfect sync with regular Kindle
Kindle (by S.Bankey on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 02:13:00)
The Kindle app is great and easy to use! I especially love that you do not need wifi to use the application.
WONT DONLOAD NOW CANT DELEATE (by Good bad a little on Tue, 20 Jan 2015 22:47:00)
This won't down load fully I keep clicked on it and it doesn't work and now I can't even deleate it wat Tha poop
Love being able to access books anywhere! (by celllman on Tue, 20 Jan 2015 01:35:00)
In the last 50 years I have collected close to 1000 paperbacks that span most all genres. I love making a sandwich and settling into a chair for good long read. Now with my Kindle app I take along many of my next favorites where ever I go. How can you beat that? Whether using my Kindle reader, my iPad mini or my Apple cell phone I'm just a few clicks away from another world! Thanks Kindle!
Kindle app on the iPad (by alindar on Tue, 20 Jan 2015 00:58:00)
I've always loved this app. It's a way better reading experience on the iPad app than on the Kindle Paperwhite. At least one other person agres with me. The app is beautiful, photos are crisp and clear, and I find it quick and easy to navigate through most books. I much prefer reading on the iPad than the Paperwhite, which I bought for use on day trips, whether public transit or just something to slip into my pocket. It does that well and I'm happy with that. But, in one of the updates for the app, I no longer have the option to search for my highlights on the search menu down the side. I can read plenty of "most popular highlights," but not my own. I've figured out the scrub bar across the bottom, but that's not as helpful. How am I to know where exactly I've highlighted what in a book? Please, Amazon, bring back the easy search for my highlights. Then I would rate five stars.
Not working (by Him jokingly on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 20:15:00)
I downloaded the app and I have a Amazon account but when I try to sign into kindle it tells me that in order for me to sign into the app that I have to have an account and I do so I don't understand why it's not working
Great App! (by joewho on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 16:57:00)
I didn't think I would enjoy reading electronic books, but this app makes it so easy.

Can't view pictures (by Exposed to the chilly weather on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 12:52:00)
I love the available books that Kindle offers however with some of the books that offer pictures as reference to a text the "illustrations" don't open the pictures. This is an important part of any book and should be corrected immediately. Currently I'm reading "Mortal Error: The Shot That Killed JFK" and I'm unable to view the illustrations or pictures throughout the book.
Bom aplicativo (by Valdemilson on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 09:52:00)
Um ótimo aplicativo, o que falta é podermos comprar livros por ele.
nice (by f1vespeed on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 07:14:00)
refined enough to compete with apple's ibooks app.
Best app for reading books (by SFC MartiG on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 02:12:00)
I have many e-book readers on my IOS devices. The only one I use is Kindle. I haven't purchased any fiction hardbacks or paperbacks in years. If there isn't a Kindle version and I can't find it in the library, I don't read it. Another great thing about Kindle is that I can read a book on my iPad and switch to my iPhone, easy peasy.
Totally awesome (by Runi74 on Sun, 18 Jan 2015 12:46:00)
Completely in love with this app. So convenient and readily available w/ or w/o internet availability. Works smoothly without any problems. I don't read my books any other way
Great App! Would love to see scriptures feature added (by Juanie66 on Sun, 18 Jan 2015 12:26:00)
I use this app primarily for school. It is great! All of my books are at my fingertips. I would love to be able to click on a scripture and see it just like I can click on a word and see the definition. Since more and more theological books are available on kindle it would be great to have this feature. The ESV, or NRSV would be great. Thanks.
Why is this app so big??? (by nfiniteforce on Sun, 18 Jan 2015 02:05:00)
46MB doesn't make any sense for an app that is for reading text.
Kindle is horrible, don't get it (by Binkabink on Sat, 17 Jan 2015 22:52:00)
Every time I download a book, and yes, you download a book to be able to read it, when I go back in the app the book isn't downloaded and it took gigabytes from my iCloud storage
Love my Kindle (by Lnm327 on Sat, 17 Jan 2015 04:40:00)
Can't make it thru a trip without it!
Excellent App (by Franax on Fri, 16 Jan 2015 22:17:00)
Works well on my phone.
Great (by ResQchic on Fri, 16 Jan 2015 15:26:00)
I Love reading on my kindle app.
Awesome app needs two page view for iPhone plus (by AndyAustin on Fri, 16 Jan 2015 13:36:00)
Great app. Great highlighting and dictionary. Love the xray feature. Love the commonly highlighted passages. If it had a two page display for iPhone plus it would be perfect.
This is business issue. Am using Nook for many books. (by Sherap6 on Thu, 15 Jan 2015 22:24:00)
Looks like many academic books are copied and pasted. Is is shameful.
Audio books (by Andrew777X on Thu, 15 Jan 2015 21:55:00)
It would be nice if the kindle app had an inter graded audio reader
Stuck in Landscape View (by Walborn on Thu, 15 Jan 2015 19:42:00)
The app is generally quite user friendly. Recently however, in the middle of a reading session, it unilaterally switched to, & became stuck in, landscape view. All other apps are in portrait and freely switch between portrait & landscape. Please fix.
I'm Addicted (by TucFlyer on Thu, 15 Jan 2015 13:53:00)
I'll admit it. I'm addicted to books on my iPad. I love the kindle app which makes buying and reading so easy. I wish, however, that kindle allowed scrolling in addition to page-turning. Especially when reading in bed, I find it much easier on the eyes.
Current version is full of bugs (by Michelle773 on Thu, 15 Jan 2015 11:54:00)
Since updating the app, I can't even open my books--the app just crashes before it even finishes loading. I've tried closing the app, restarting my iPad, and resetting my iPad, but it just won't let me read my books. And that's kind of the whole point.
Great (by Justnatalie on Thu, 15 Jan 2015 07:59:00)
Really love the app and that I am able to read using my iPad! I love it.
Not as great for college students as you think (by ChemistryCam on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 23:02:00)
This app was a complete letdown for me. They draw you in with all of the wonderful book samples, but when it comes down to the textbooks, they missed the mark on this one. If you are buying a textbook (rented or not), you are pretty much paying over a 100 dollars for a PDF file with faulty page numbers. Yes, this app comes loaded with plenty of features, but they are useless if you can't enjoy the experience of reading the book. Since these books read like PDFS, you can't view more than one page at a time and the page turning simulation does not work on them. The layout is also difficult to navigate and overwhelming. For these reasons, I converted to YUZU which has a simpler layout, book simulation, and is dramatically cheaper than kindle. The only reason I didn't give this app 1 star, is the customer service at Amazon was amazing and in less than 5 minutes my rental purchase was refunded.
FANTASTIC! (by bloodbuzz on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 22:31:00)
I bought my mom and brother(21) kindles last year for Christmas and they both them nonstop reading books. I couldn't be happier. 5 stars for a great app!
Awesome app!!! (by MDMatos on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 22:16:00)
Outstanding!!! Love the ease of use.
Porn with new book browser (by istuart45 on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 21:17:00)
Not happy they added a browser built in with full access to lots of pornographic books. I guess kindle is gone for my family for a while. There is no way to control this or lock a child out of it.
Read it (by John DelOrefice on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 18:11:00)
The app should be able to read it to you just like the Amazon kindle devices.
Love it! (by LMsully on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 18:05:00)
I use Kindle everywhere I go. I've been stuck at the doctors for over an hour! Thank you Kindle!!!!
Not User Friendly (by DocSoup on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 06:04:00)
With my iPhone 5 it was fine and definitely five stars, however with the iPhone 6+ it is horrible! It is positively not user-friendly... Hopefully, in the near future of this problem will be corrected… But in the meantime it is unusable!
Dictionary Text Size (by Kapok1 on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 05:13:00)
I love my Kindle app, but I find it very frustrating that although I adjust the text size larger for ease of reading, the text size of the dictionary does not also adjust larger. The minuscule text of the dictionary makes it quite useless without the use of my readers...the use of which while reading in bed is quite inconvenient.
Great app (by Tasha Millner on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 02:26:00)
I enjoy the app very much.
Not so good (by Nanie195 on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 01:50:00)
My kindle app tends to keep crashing so it doesn't give me a chance to read any books .....I can't read any books at all
Love My Kindle (by I do spreadsheets 2 on Wed, 14 Jan 2015 01:39:00)
I love my Kindle and the reading apps. However if I could wish for other options, they would be 1) the ability to sort by genre; 2) the ability to view book summaries in your library. I can think of a couple more, but I am more than satisfied with what I have. Thank you, Kindle
Superb Reading Application (by bunnylover18 on Tue, 13 Jan 2015 22:07:00)
I just transitioned to an iPad and immediately downloaded the Kindle app. The carousel is missing in the iOS version of this app but otherwise it's the same. Stable, night/low light friendly, and built in dictionary function. Excellent app
The best (by Green Butterfly 90 on Tue, 13 Jan 2015 05:06:00)

Broken (by Jankins 00 on Tue, 13 Jan 2015 01:43:00)
Will not allow me to login. Keeps giving me an error saying it doesn't recognize my account. Please fix!!
Love the Kindle App (by Mosisjan on Mon, 12 Jan 2015 17:21:00)
While I probably own at least 100 paperback books still to read, I find I only read books on the Kindle. I love the convenience of syncing between the iPad and iPhone and can't imagine going back to carrying a paperback (or two or three) with me. The ease of use and portability are amazing. I always have my book with me for those unexpected moments that I'm free to read. I also like that Amazon alerts me that I've already purchased a book. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I've actually purchased paperbacks that I've already read. Love it, love it, love it!!!!
Love the kindle app (by Bratnanc on Mon, 12 Jan 2015 14:25:00)
Finally ran out of room at my house for anymore books or book shelves. Love the kindle app. I read a lot so it's nice to get a ton of new books without building a library addition onto my house.
Enjoy (by Paula Brown on Mon, 12 Jan 2015 11:27:00)
I love reading books on my devices! It is easy and convenient. The books are handy when I have a few minutes to read, and scrolling through the books is simple.
Love it! (by Hama from Hellscream on Mon, 12 Jan 2015 04:11:00)

Can't get books (by NG3693 on Mon, 12 Jan 2015 00:47:00)
Why can't I buy books? Why is this so complicated? It's so annoying.
Broken (by GodBlessThe80s on Mon, 12 Jan 2015 00:27:00)
Doesn't validate customer account login. Amazon support is worthless when trying to get help on this.
Broken (by marathonmanjerry on Mon, 12 Jan 2015 00:22:00)
The app won't recognize my account login. Amazon support said it was a known issue but offered no help or eta to fix.
One Big Problem (by Persian milkshake on Mon, 12 Jan 2015 00:20:00)
The Kindle app is great, and has proven an excellent alternative to shelling out hundreds per term on textbooks. My main problem with the app (on my iPad mini 2) is that rotating from portrait to landscape orientation and back cuts off about 1/3 of the screen. Any time I change orientation, I essentially have to close out of the app in order to see the full page. It's a major pain, and I keep hoping that it will get fixed. Other than that the app is great.
Favorite App (by Patricia Hornbeak on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 23:47:00)
I adore the Kindle app. It syncs with both my Kindle Fire and my iPhone and makes it super easy and convenient to read my favorite books.
Works on iPhone 5s (by Hrudy on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 23:19:00)
Works better than you would think on a small screen. I have read several books using this app with no problem.
Kindle app for iPhone (by Abhjkiool on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 22:44:00)
Love this app! Wish you could purchase in app though😕
Auto features (by PhotographerRenee on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 21:28:00)
Been using the iPad kindle app for years. The auto display of dictionary, translation, Wikipedia is a royal pain now when trying to highlight. With no way to turn off. So annoying. Have searched on how to turn off. Ruined an awesome app.
Good reader but could be improved (by JWM CPO on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 19:07:00)
Good e reader for iOS, especially being able to switch between net reader and native app. Ability to organize books is gradually improving. Wish swipe up/down at margin would fine tune brightness on the fly.
Mostly okay. (by Zeroes on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 17:25:00)
The fact that justified text is still the only option for a service focused on reading is absurd. I am waiting to upgrade my Kindle hardware because I won't pay for more hardware for reading that doesn't support ragged right text. As a alternate option when my Kindle isn't around, this app is okay, but on a smaller screen the justified text is even more offensive.
Solid and reliable (by jad44 on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 17:05:00)
Been using it for three years on the iPad. Works well. Simple to get in and out of and with the retina display, an easy read.
Forgot Kindle password (by John Smith on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 16:16:00)
Hi I got my new IPhone 6 but when I wanted to open it is asking my Kindle password which I forgot. Can you please help me? Thanks
Super smooth (by Southpaw02108 on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 12:41:00)
Reading experience on the Kindle app. Doesn't matter if you are reading on a Kindle device (I own a couple including the newest--they are fantastic). I also read on my iPad (which I am using right now). As 'readers' go Amazon's philosophy has always been to 'get out of the way' so you can READ. I've been with them from the start (including that very first innovative but butt-ugly white Kindle). I wish there were more competition but for now I am a happy Kindle owner/reader (and my Amazon library keeps growing....)

Can't Find A Way to Pay for Books (by DittoDan on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 02:26:00)
Opened app and found the book I want to purchase. After spending 15 minutes going through all the menus and FAQ questions, I can't find a way to purchase a full version of the book. I could only get the Sample version of the book. Yes, there is probably a way to purchase a book, but they didn't make the app user friendly. Makes me mad that they would do this. I WANT to give them money, and they obviously don't want my money. What a shame.
eTextbooks! (by Freeglower on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 01:59:00)
eTextbooks now available on iPhone too? Finally worthy of 5 stars!
Love the app and my kindle (by Christine N Nelson on Sat, 10 Jan 2015 22:58:00)
So much easier than carrying all my books! Love it!
Selecting text is a mess (by Howardd21 on Sat, 10 Jan 2015 22:22:00)
Any other IOS app is so easy to select text to highlight, etc. but for some reason this app just keeps bringing up the menus and scroll bars,etc. and then hiding them, but rarely selects the text. Please fix this.
Touch sensor doesn't register well for highlights (by DevinH on Sat, 10 Jan 2015 20:58:00)
Good app, but have problems when I want to hold down to highlight. Normally will not register my finger. App did not always have this problem. Thanks!
Awesome app (by wonderbread988 on Sat, 10 Jan 2015 16:56:00)

AWSOME (by Hey hey 1000 on Sat, 10 Jan 2015 13:59:00)
this app is AWSOME I can find any book that I want. I can even find books that I never thought that existed. Thank you so much.
Love it, but... (by NanasMoochies on Sat, 10 Jan 2015 12:20:00)
I use my kindle app to read everything, I love it. Having said that, and after seeing the most recent update, I would love to see the book synopsis in the app for the iPhone as well. It really is a pain to have to check each book, then it loses its "new" label. Otherwise, great app!
GREAT APP! (by Sandyzu on Sat, 10 Jan 2015 12:17:00)
I use this app on my iPad and it works great. Not having a Kindle, I'm so happy I can use this app to read from my iPad because I love Amazon and buy everything from there, to include all my books!

Love this App (by Mnr45701 on Sat, 10 Jan 2015 00:05:00)
I resisted it for years, but after buying a tablet I felt comfortable reading on it. But it's wifi only. So I'm out and about with my iPhone and I found the kindle app for it. I d/l'ed it and now I'm syncing the books I was reading at home. Wonderful seamless transition. Thanks, Kindle people!
Great App (by sukisukiyaki on Fri, 09 Jan 2015 16:34:00)
I use the Kindle app almost exclusively, even though I have all of the others. I buy most of my books from Amazon because of the huge selection and the varied price points. My one wish for the app would be for Amazon to reinstate the direct link to the Kindle store. It was really convenient.
Great app (by JM0504 on Fri, 09 Jan 2015 15:17:00)
It's nice to be able to use the wifi to be at the same location on my kindle at home, then on my phone when I'm in line at the dmv or wherever. I like being able to switch easily between the two, which works most (but not all) of the time.
Good app for reading your ebooks (by Nachito51 on Fri, 09 Jan 2015 14:01:00)
This is good app for reading as long as you like living in a DRM world. If you need to read non-DRM books, things can get quite convoluted.
Waste of time (by Point446 on Fri, 09 Jan 2015 03:55:00)
Can't buy any books to read. All I can read is samples of books they thought I would like and non of those look any good.
Terrible (by Oobielicious on Thu, 08 Jan 2015 22:01:00)
The entire system is horrible, buying books and syncing them to your phone is just awful. Kindle, Amazon and all of their programs are not user friendly and should be hogwash.
Great Reading App (by Chalain on Thu, 08 Jan 2015 15:20:00)
I really like using the kindle app for reading. I just wish I could categorize my books. My husband and I share an account. I would really love having a way to create my own categories or be able to tag books with multiple categories so when I'm in the mood for a specific type of book they are all grouped together instead of having to search through a couple hundred titles
Love this app! (by Textyo on Thu, 08 Jan 2015 13:08:00)
This is the best reading app out there.

Upgrade Impossible! (by KoKoismydog on Thu, 08 Jan 2015 10:02:00)
I have made two attempts to "contact" the app designers so that I can upgrade from the Lite version to the full version. I can not get a response, all I need is help getting to the website to update, for some reason the site is not opening. I would love to enjoy the full version but apparently customer service isn't the top priority. I would rather not post this review and instead get a response from the designers.

Best reading App! (by Krish--066 on Thu, 08 Jan 2015 01:29:00)
I love Amazon! And their Kindle app is incredible! My favorite aspects: ability to change color of text, size of font, etc. and when I switch between devices, it will update me to the page I am on currently, but not unless I say it can.
Greatest idea ever!!! (by Bookloverforevs on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 22:29:00)
Best Invention EVER. As a gal on the go, having books so readily available on my iPhone, iPad, and even computer is so convenient! The discount is also great!
Unusable (by TLMcL on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 20:38:00)
For the past several days I have been unable to open any books. I tap on a book and the app immediately closes.
Loving the Kindle App!!! (by Rdjatl on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 16:31:00)
It is such a convenience to have my kindle library on my iPhone! I am able to take it everywhere I go and read a few pages anywhere!
Great App!!!! (by Todd Shively on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 14:53:00)
I love being able to open my phone and pick up where I left off from my Kindle. This has kept me occupied on multiple occasions such as the car dealership when having maintenance done or at the doctors office.
The ONLY reason for 4 stars (by jack bauer...really on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 14:22:00)
I absolutely agree with the other reviews! Great app that adds value to my life. The ONLY reason I gave it 4 stars is that I would love to see a night time mode...red letters on black background, that is. I realize there is the black with white letters, but red light doesn't effect the melatonin production like white or blue light. Thanks for the consideration and the GREAT app!
Where are the page numbers? (by Pandora's Abyss on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 13:15:00)
I downloaded three text books through Amazon for use with this app. I downloaded the latest version of the app. I have an iPhone 6 plus with the latest firmware. WHERE ARE THE PAGE NUMBERS????? I have scoured the internet and tried every suggestion out there but NOTHING works. Where are the page numbers?
Some suggestions for future features (by Scrabbler56 on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 03:03:00)
Great app! Would love the ability to make a note or write a synopsis of each book. I download a lot of books long before I get around to reading them. It would be nice to have a synopsis when I'm selecting a book to read.
iBooks is better (by amber dunne on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 02:42:00)
Kindle is great if you don't have access to iBooks. You can't shop right within the app and it doesn't have the scroll reading feature like iBooks. For these reasons, I rarely use the kindle app anymore :( Even if the books are slightly more expensive on iBooks, I would rather have the convenience of in app shopping and reading by scroll rather than page turning.
Love kindle!!! (by ferntexas on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 01:49:00)
Its the best esp on my 6+!
Great App (by Mseedii2 on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 01:10:00)

Love that I no longer my Kindle (by cclark440 on Wed, 07 Jan 2015 00:00:00)
I love that I don't need to carry around my kindle anymore. Between my iPad and my iPhone u am never without me reading material, and can always pickup were ever I left off last regardless of what device I used last.
Love it!!! Syncs with my actual Kindle like MAGIC! It’s so nice to be on the same page :) (by Gary LaPointe http://GarySaid.com/ on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 21:39:00)
I keep my Kindle in the car for reading on the go and use my iPad (dimmed) for reading in bed without the bright lights on. THIS app keeps my books synced on the same page I left off on! Other than not working well where there is glare (compared to the actual Kindle) the app is slightly nicer than the actual Kindle at this point (and much faster). I know people have e-reader preferences, but I think Kindle has the e-Ink (black and white eReader) market, so that’s who I’m sticking with. The fact that this is a awesome app makes that decision even easier. This syncs properly even if you purchase the books from other sources (like the author directly) but you need to set up Amazon (one time, super easy) to allow you to e-mail books to it. It's got X-Ray just like a Kindle does too. X-Ray gives you details on characters and places and objects. About the only thing that I don't like is when I post a quote from a book to social media (like Facebook) it doesn't put quotes around it so the text looks kind of funny (and you can't edit it). You cannot buy books directly from the app, you must go to the web (they’re avoiding the in-app purchase mechanism to save you money).
Need Wiki search option (by baboletter on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 20:55:00)
Please add 'language select option' to wikipedia search.
Love it! (by LadyTexas on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 18:59:00)
Great way to enjoy books and library books!
Good (by MShamar on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 18:46:00)
Convenient and helpful
Nice but lacks 2 important features (by Nightreader of the west on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 17:51:00)
1) should allow ability to shop/add content 2) should allow user to change don't color so one can configure white text on black background
Perfect! (by MelWarrior on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 17:15:00)
Kindle on the go! It is easy to use it syncs with my Kindle so I'm on track wherever I go!
Love the Kindle App (by Rare4jewel on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 15:51:00)
I enjoy reading from kindle so easy. No more struggling with night lights. Comfortable reading. Books are so easy to download. Love the features of highlights and bookmark. Everyone should have the kindle or kindle app. Thanks C.F New Jersey
Great App (by Favflu on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 12:16:00)
Had this app for several years without any issues. Would recommend to anyone.
Use it heavily (by lcharters on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 10:16:00)
I'm distressed that Kindle uses a proprietary format, that the bookmarking and note taking features are not very useful, and that the formatting is sometimes suspect. On the other hand, the syncing between iPhone, iPad, and desktop is (almost) seamless, and the integration with the Amazon store is excellent. If you are an avid reader, it is better than OK, even if Amazon as a company seems to have the same efficiency, and warmth, of a Wehrmacht invasion.
Great reads (by yoda4grace on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 09:01:00)
I've never had a problem. If it could feel like paper it would be perfect. As kindle cannot, I'm extremely happy to carry an armload of books with me in the palm of my hand.
Superb (by JHisey on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 09:01:00)
Kindle is great. Convenient and amazon books has it all
Good but needs improving (by Shimmy486 on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 03:39:00)
I really like the Kindle app. Love the X-ray and definition with a dictionary or Wikipedia. New features of showing the next book in the series and accessing the kindle store is great. Few things missing....wish you could download the full book from that recommended menu, not just the sample. Need to allow access to the Wish List or have a separate Kindle only Wish List to be able to access from the app. It would be better to be able to purchase books directly from the app instead of having to use the Internet and sign in. Otherwise I think the recent improvements have helped a lot.
Renewed reader (by nusouth on Tue, 06 Jan 2015 02:31:00)
Love this because it is encouraging me to go read. I don't have to care a tone of books around. Best app on my iPad

Perfect integration with Amazon and my public library to buy or check out books!
Great app to read kindle e-books (by the great Nerd on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 23:41:00)
Title says it all. I like the kindle books and viewing them on my iPad is great!
It's the Best! (by Diamc on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 20:17:00)
I have 3 different reading apps, but Kindle is, by far, the best. It's easiest to use, the most dependable, and offers the most features. Most of my reading is ow done through Kindle.
Can read anywhere (by Mama fluffy on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 19:36:00)
Love being able to read wherever I am at. I have this on my IPad and my phone. Syncs to the current page. Appreciate the built in dictionary, highlighting, etc.
Kindle (by Mydeepfuture on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 19:09:00)
I luv my kindle. I use it everyday in my daily spiritus practice.
Manditory Application (by iHegemony on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 18:50:00)
I love the Kindle app. I read 95% of my books on iPad or iPhone. It's dependable and easy to use. I consider it a necessity.
Love it! (by Sabu ;) on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 18:17:00)
Great app and easy to use. Wasn't sure about iPad reading but I like it.
Great App (by Puzzler77 on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 18:11:00)
This app works really well. Great organization and books download quickly.
Not able to select text with iPad Air 2 (by bwlnc on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 14:22:00)
I upgraded to iPad Air 2 and was surprised that I could not select text for highlighting for many of my Kindle books. I have no problem with my iPad 4 in selecting text with the same books. After resetting, I may highlight once or twice before the problem with selecting text would happen again. Amazon support tried to assist but no solution. I assume it is an incompatibility problem with Air 2 and the most recent app update. Another user commented about a similar problem. Still having issue with the latest update with highlighting with some Kindle books, not all books. A workaround is to use a stylus to do the selecting of text in lieu of your finger. The issue is with the app with the Kindle books and with iPad Air 2. If you purchase a Kindle Book there may be a chance it will not work. Hope problem will be fixed soon.
So convenient (by LoisD77 on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 12:55:00)
I love having access to my Kindle Library right on my phone. Everything syncs between my devices. It is also a good way to read PDFs.
Awesome! (by rkded on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 11:31:00)
I love to read and this option has made my life so much easier because I no longer have to carry a backpack full of books when I travel, around my house or at work. All I have to do is simple access my kindle and they are all there. This tool is simply awesome.
Kindle for iPhone (by Barker902 on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 08:31:00)
Love the kindle on my iPhone. I've always got it with me and only have to keep up with one device. It's great.
does not work (by lotwnow on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 03:03:00)
I have iphone 3 and now can't use this app---
Updates broke stuff! (by Corkicelli on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 02:22:00)
After finally getting it right the latest 'optimized for iOS 8' made it a very buggy app again. It won't retain a bookmark or last page read so when I sync it stays on the page I'm on instead of going to the last page I was at. It also is now letting the screen lock which it never used to do. So now every two minutes the screen fades and then locks. Not too much of a big deal but extremely annoying. And the worst? No help. The help link takes you to generic Amazon Kindle help page with no useful information at all. The help search is useless. And who has time to call Amazon and sit on the phone for an hour waiting for somebody who knows how to work the Kindle app? Back to being disappointed by the app.
Love this app! (by Heartmender70 on Mon, 05 Jan 2015 00:07:00)
I love to read and I love to travel. E-readers have completely changed my ability to bring along as many books as I want! I enjoy reading with the Kindle. My only suggestion for improvement would be a better capacity to organise the library.
Its alright (by Jaci1178 on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 20:31:00)
Its okay, got a lot of books i dont like the fact that kindle does not bundle series together, i have to look for each book, and if i want all of the books in a series together i have to make a collection, to get to them .. This app is alright
Easy to use (by R. Alexander on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 17:58:00)
I love the kindle app, it's easy to use and sink from my amazon account. I have had no problems and would highly recommend it.
Fundamental, fatal bugs, never get fixed (by M A 4 on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 17:34:00)
1. It STILL doesn't reliably track the furthest page read. Works maybe half the time, even on the SAME device, much less synching to others. Want to flip back to an earlier chapter, or follow a footnote to an appendix? Good luck getting back the page you'd been reading. This shouldn't be harder than it is with a paper book. 2. It STILL won't reliably turn the page forward/back! Text reflows sometimes, maybe twice an hour, leaving you on the same page trying to figure out where you are. (Just one example of the terrible type handling.) 3. Searching the text is INSANELY SLOW, and won't search backwards from your current position, even though what you probably want to find is recent mentions. (So as a workaround, you have to remember your current page number in your head and scroll through endless dog-slow search results to find recent mentions of the character/place you want.) Seriously, Safari can search the entire Internet for a word way faster than this app can search a single document. Release after release, these bugs remain. How can Amazon not care about making the most basic things reliable?
Could not function with out it. (by Sue White on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 16:08:00)
I am on my 3rd Kindle, and as well use the app on my iPad and even on my iPhone. Actually as my phone is always with me, I can read wherever I am. Best invention ever!!!!
Love it! (by SandraChamplain on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 14:23:00)
So easy to read books on my iPhone when I normally wouldn't be reading!
Great App (by Sevpva12 on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 14:13:00)
Had this app for a while and it's still great. Better than trying to carry around multiple books. Can't live without this
Love Kindle (by mebdad on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 14:06:00)
I began with one of the original kindle devices. I used it until its display began to fail. During that time i would only use the app when traveling and not wanting to pack an additional device. Since then i use the app exclusively. Love it.
Kindle for iPad and more (by Cathy Yearwood on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 13:46:00)
I've been reading with the Kindle app for a long time now and don't know what I would without it. Probably not great for my eyes, but, I don't need a light attached to a book or a flashlight when I want to read in bed! I don't know how we did without all these devices for so long😍
Images (by Dr Pedro V. on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 13:15:00)
Why must the images in kindle books be such low resolution? Whenever I have images related to text the are so horrible that you can't make anything out. It is the only time I wish I had a print book and I have delayed/given up purchasing books I know to have accompanying images like maps or diagrams. PS add a scroll formate, it is a really great way to use the app, look at iBooks if you don't know what I am talking about. Update: downgraded for lack of response. How hard is it to add a scroll format? If you need an example check out iBooks.
Kindle Review (by SprtulLuv on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 10:28:00)
I enjoy being able to read my books where ever I want. But would prefer a kindle fire over using my phone.
Great app (by Snappyjaw on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 06:07:00)
Kindle app is easy to use and navigate. I love that I can read the same book on different devices and my progress is saved when I use the next device.
Great app (by Azyankee23 on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 01:12:00)
Don't think it can be made better
Good read (by firemedicmick on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 00:43:00)
I use my iPad and my kindle to read books with. The kindle app seems to work fine I just can't figure out how to purchase books through the app. I usually just go to Amazon website.
Kindle App is Great! (by Lake gamer on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 23:27:00)
I love the kindle app. My iPad is my computer when I travel. Having the kindle app on it allows me to bring my library on every trip! I love it!
Great update (by Mzhood on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 22:14:00)
So happy they incorporated some of the in-app book purchases. Works like a charm.
Awesome Application (by ProHoneyBadger on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 21:55:00)
I have come to absolutely love this application it doesn't so much force me to read but he makes it extremely convenient knowing that the books are readily available that I have purchased anytime and anywhere on any of my electronic devices.
Kindle App (by wpwpwpwpwpwpwpwpw on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 20:42:00)
I move from iPhone to Ipad, to Kindle. I can "pick my book up" while waiting at a Dr appointment or grabbing a quick bite to eat. Love the flexibility and variety of available reading material
Kindle rules (by James Crank on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 15:55:00)
Love the last page read sync, multiple bookmarks and highlight/notes library it keeps!
Kind of OK, but very buggy in some areas (by tagger9 on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 14:49:00)
Highlighting is very problematic, can't turn off the idiotic dictionary/Wikipedia pop up when you select something. Can be difficult or impossible to select text. Given Amazons resources, you wonder how they can release such a POS app.
Kindle (by tee_tee08 on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 13:57:00)
I just love the kindle I can download & read on the go
Reading At Night (by ninjanina56 on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 13:33:00)
The Kindle (read on my iPhone) allows me to read in the middle of the night without waking up my husband. The convenience of this device has allowed me to download books that I hear about on NPR while I'm listening to the book review! I love my Kindle App!
Awesome app (by Zpddodah on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 12:28:00)
So very user friendly and intuitive. Love it!
favorite (by erase? on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 07:51:00)
this is my absolute favorite e-reader app. easy to use, layout is clean, and works seamlessly! I haven't had any issues since I've been using it, about 4 years ago.
Love it on my iPhone 6 Plus! (by jsumbi on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 07:22:00)
Great reading app for my iPhone 6 plus. No problems experienced so far.
Irritating behavior (by smpte_peter on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 04:44:00)
Last few updates ... Whenever switching to Kindle, the current page appears, then disappears, then reappears ... why??? Some books will not permit increased font size
Love This App! (by Raiderfan315 on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 04:05:00)
Theres nothing like having my libaray on my iPad Air! Syncs, downloads, updates without a problem. I hardly ever use my Kindle Fire HD any more! If you like to read, get this app!
Works Good (by Iwtfj on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 03:33:00)
Just as you would expect.
Good app (by Cathy Edmonds on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 01:49:00)
Very easy to use and convenient. I take it everywhere
Bookmarks not saved, sync messed up, something's not right since the last update... (by Draislin on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 00:26:00)
Kindle app has always worked flawlessly for me on both my iPad and iPhone. Now suddenly I bookmark my page and close my device and when I open it again I'm dumped at some random location in the book. Using the bookmarks to navigate to the correct page is broken as well. I have to flip and flip or go chapter by chapter to find my way back then I have to close the app or my device and the same stupid thing happens again! Grr!
Love Kindle (by leighlikestoknit on Sat, 03 Jan 2015 00:07:00)
I love Kindle and the app. The only part I am having trouble with right now, I think has more to do with the content provider than with Kindle. The New York Review of Books does not allow bookmarking and it shows a date of January 1, 1970 at the top of the individual article being read so you cannot get back to where you were if you go to another book.
Kindle iPhone App (by Mikey13 on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 23:17:00)
If I'm not reading on my Kindle, I'm reading on the iPhone App. It's great.
Disappointed (by Jeruel98 on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 21:55:00)
It says that the download books feature is not available in region. Please help 🙉🙉🙉🙈🙈🙈
Best app (by Hooked on solitare on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 20:21:00)
I was using iBooks but lately I have been using Kindle. Love the way you keep improving the reading experience.
Two problems (by ctobeyk on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 16:07:00)
Kindle for iPad would be perfect if it had the capability to read out loud (like my very old Kindle) when my eyes hurt from the screen blue light, The other drawback is it needs a blue light filter so I can read in the evening and then be able to sleep. The sepia at a darker setting helps a bit, but not enough.
Always has worked (by milehidi on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 14:46:00)
I use this app all the time and it has always worked perfectly. The iPad and the Kindle app are a great combination.
Kindle – Read Books, eBooks, Magazines, Newspapers & Textbooks Review from 901th to 950th
Great!! (by Pinksig on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 13:02:00)
I still love my paper books , however due to increase in travel & just wanting to minimize, this app is terrific!! I am able to have my library with me without the bulk!!
Great App (by 111GAPeaches on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 12:57:00)
I use the app all the time. So convenient and easy to use. Glad the glitches were fixed.
Carry more on less (by Femi6 on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 11:15:00)
I love being able to have access to my library at any time. The Kindle App gives me that access and I love it!
WTG (by Zoomie2nd on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 10:20:00)
Great app--no problems, downloads purchases from Amazon as soon as I open app. I can't think of anything I would like to see added to this app--but then, I'm still awake at gawd-thirty in the morning, so my thinker isn't at it's best.
Kindle App for iPad (by luvnHim on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 04:15:00)
I love my Kindle App, I can switch from working on a project to my favorite book in seconds. I can take my favorite reads with me everywhere I go without having to carry a ton of books.
A new reading experience (by Sokrat on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 03:47:00)
Kindle has completely changed not only how I read, but also how much pleasure I get from reading!
Great app! (by DLEonF on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 02:16:00)
I don't think I've ever read so much before I got the Kindle app. I have it on my iPad and iPhone and it's the best. I have many books with me at once and there's less clutter on my night stand. It's great for trips and rides and anywhere you want to read. I don't know what I would do without the app. I love getting books from Amazon and have them instantly downloaded to my devices. I probably use this app more than all the others on my devices.
Solid (by DCPonder on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 02:15:00)
Reliable reading program. The process for purchasing books separately from the reader continues to be cumbersome. Page flow is not as smooth as with iBooks, and I miss the scrolling option. But being able to read on operating systems other than iOS and to sync across all those devices is a boon.
Hands down this is the best (by Freddie "Fred" on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 02:08:00)
Kindle is the undisputed champion for readers. I'm very pleased with Kindle as well as the apps that are supported.
The best reader app (by maryzpeterman on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 01:19:00)
I'm an Apple person, an iMac lover and everything Apple.....except iBook. Kindle is the best reader app and I've tried them all. I don't have a Kindle but have had every generations of the iPad. Kindle is the ONLY reader app that has work flawlessly with them all.💚💙💛
Latest update is frustrating! (by Nani2222 on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 00:22:00)
I love my Kindle app, but with the latest update my app keeps crashing. I've tried everything! Other than that, it's great!
Wife is glad for this app (by RunnerNana7 on Fri, 02 Jan 2015 00:08:00)
My wife has this app on her iPad mini, and every time she buys a Kindle book, she has it sent to both the iPad and my Kindle. Since she uses that iPad for everything, this app is handy.
Needs an ORANGE light option (by Serafina57 on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 22:54:00)
With all the research on light coming from “devices” interfering with sleep, it’s high time for an update that allows for an Orange Light option in Night mode. i.e. the paper is black with orange letters. This will make me happy. PLEASE. :-)
Great app (by digitalhi on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 21:26:00)
First, I love having my Kindle library in my pocket or on whatever device I'm using at the time. The app has all the features I would want and I have yet to find something that wasn't included, other than the ability to purchase books from the Kindle store.
No Parental Controls! (by Sac Steve on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 19:19:00)
Amazon for some reason only supports parental controls on their own Kindle hardware despite the fact that they could very, very easily implement the same functionality in their Kindle app. Makes me really want to reconsider whether I should buy content from them.
Great app! (by Gavins_bat_girl on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 18:37:00)
I absolutely love this app but I have a suggestion: Include an option to know how many pages, lines, and words I've read.
Best Way to Read! (by CAPT Chop on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 16:37:00)
I love this app! This makes printed books obsolete!
Love it (by Dheis on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 13:51:00)
The actual kindles do text to speech. I wish the app had a function to do that as well.
Love my Kindle! (by Vadesktop on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 11:56:00)
Kindle for iPhone just keeps getting better and better. So easy to use--from bookmarking to page-turning. I used to travel with 10 pounds of books: my Bible, my recreational reading, and my self-help books. All these have been replaced by my iPhone. Also, thanks to Amazon Prime, I get to experience a new author every month--free.
Great but ... (by IP Attorney on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 08:24:00)
It'd be helpful if all devices (including paperwhite) had a consistent interface.
Great app! (by RedTacoma on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 04:11:00)
I use the Kindle app on my iPad and iPhone daily. My only complaint is there seems to be some "stutters" when I scroll up and down in "Collection" mode. I suspect it is one of those things that could be resolved if Apple and Amazon were better friends and truly had the consumer/customer in mind.
You had ONE job, Kindle... (by thatjokeisntfunnyanymore on Thu, 01 Jan 2015 02:28:00)
Keep my place across devices. It's the number one feature you'd expect, right? FAIL Otherwise it's fine. My only other complaint is it skips around a bit sometimes. I guess that also falls under ONE JOB....

Lost (by Mayed-123 on Wed, 31 Dec 2014 18:27:00)
First of all thanks for the support we get from this app. I have small issue when I swipe to the next page it swipes more than pages at the same time.
Kindle App - love it (by Keller Mom 3 on Wed, 31 Dec 2014 11:02:00)
I love this app - it is wonderful to be able to sync my Kindle to my ipad. I recently received a "book" for Christmas - I find myself rushing through it because I would rather read on my Kindle. I would recommend this app to anyone who has a Kindle and other devices - makes life so much more simple.
Still the best reading App (by MLBMickey on Wed, 31 Dec 2014 05:47:00)
Sometimes when I open it, the app immediately shuts down. I tap on it again and it opens just fine. I have tried other reading apps, and always go back to Kindle. Love that it keeps track of where I am no mater which of my electronic devices I pick up.

Awesome app!! (by Lomeas18 on Wed, 31 Dec 2014 00:41:00)
Even I don't have my kindle device with me all the time i can get access to my kindle books, loading the book when you need it through your iPad!
Love the app! (by DejaBreezy on Wed, 31 Dec 2014 00:01:00)
Easy to use and I can use it anywhere!
Easy to use, great selection and prices (by YWC19 on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 23:59:00)
Easy to use, with a great selection and prices. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because books cannot be bought directly in the Kindle app.
Great app! (by Jhorn329 on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 23:39:00)
Love it! Have such easy access to my library anywhere!
Thanks for nothing (by Pro.223 on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 22:22:00)
I used to use Kindle for my iphone, but now this is upgraded for ios 7 and up, leaving me out in the cold, I now can't use it; thanks for screwing people with older iphones.
Love Kindle! (by Lfindall on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 22:21:00)
I have had a kindle for over 4 years. As soon as I got the IPad I got the App. I am a book junkie and I truly had run out of room for paper books. I still love paper books, however I can now buy and read a wide variety of books that I do not want to own in paper and buy those keepers! I just talked my 76 year old sister into getting one and she loves it!
Great App (by Peace Diva by SC on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 21:04:00)
Such a great app. So easy to use. Seamless transition from buying on Amazon to my devices. I enjoy being able to read books on my phone with all of the app options.
Kindle App (by Mary0127 on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 18:09:00)
Use the Kindle app all the time and enjoy the features that are available. The only change I would add was an easy way to remove the book from the devise once it is completed.
Perfect (by Rebelone1 on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 17:11:00)
Absolutely great for reading Kindle books. Love it!!!
Just OK (by Kath245 on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 15:14:00)
Ok but hard to order books on iPhone and hard to organize and know what books you have read. Needs more obvious options or instructions.
Kindle App (by Papa_from_MS on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 14:50:00)
Love the app!! It gives me the ability to read either from my Kindle, any of my PCs or from my phone! Thanks, Amazon, for a truly useful app!
E readers (by DRALPC on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 12:38:00)
I never thought I would read on E-readers. My first E-reader was Mobie Pocket. Mobie Pocket sent me email offering free books for about 2 years before I tried it out. Once I read my first ebook I was hooked. When Kindle came out I resisted it at first. I bought my wife the first Kindle reader around 2009. I then discovered I could install the reader on my smart phone and personal computer. I got hooked on Kindle. I purchased Kindle readers for my children's and grandchildren. I particularly like the integrated dictionary in the Kindle reader. I work with my grandson with his Kindle Fire helping him build his vocabulary. I use the note and highlight features on my Kindle apps to organize my reading material. Kindle readers best invention since the printing press.
I love to read (by GrandmaArlene on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 12:09:00)
This makes it SO easy to have a book with me if I unexpectedly find myself waiting. Absolutely LOVE it
Improved (by 71925 on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 10:59:00)
The recent improvements are great. I particularly appreciate the ability to copy text into the clipboard. Such a simple thing, and yet it had been missing for so long. Continuing irritants include: Whenever the focus is switched back to Kindle, the page you are reading blanks out and refreshes. I don't recall this happening in earlier versions. Simply selecting text should not cause popups for the dictionary and translation. There should be an option to turn this behavior off, or a button of some sort to engage it.
Love this app (by Logan Queen on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 05:51:00)
It's like having your own unlimited library in your pocket. Love it.
My Kindle (by Candice Freedman on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 14:17:00)
I never thought I'd get used to a kindle over a classic book but I was wrong. It makes traveling & reading a breeze & I love that I can look up an unfamiliar word.
Love the app (by Mraebradway on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 02:05:00)
Love the app. I spend more time reading on my actual Kindle, but I do like the convenience of having the app on my phone if I forget my kindle.
Great. Two things though... (by Jaconn on Tue, 30 Dec 2014 01:49:00)
Love it! Couldn't live without it! Two things I would change: I would like to be able to make a note or a rating for myself when I've finished a book so I know if I liked that particular author. Also, I would like different user sections. One for me one for my kid. Thanks.
It's great! (by JJMLRP on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 22:09:00)
What can I say? Convenient, effective and great way to read anytime. Keeps me off Facebook too.
Works ok for me (by Skilady71 on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 19:47:00)
Tho I prefer a real book, this is a useful alternative. Np problems with the app.
Kindle App (by Lady Bmore on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 19:35:00)
I've used your kindle app for several years and love the idea that I can carry my books and pda pamphlets on my iPad and other devices.

Good app (by N44445 on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 13:59:00)
I use this App often when my kindle dies or I don't have it with me. Easy to use and syncs withy kindle do I can easily continue reading my current book.
Cutting edge (by Gt Nelson on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 13:43:00)
This has always been a great app. I am able to find virtually any book I am looking for. The app works great and has minimal issues.
Excellent (by TinyTribeFriend on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 11:43:00)
Very easy to use. This syncs well with my kindle. While I still love traditional books more, the Kindle and the app are very convenient.
Best app in the world!!! (by cchampagnee on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 09:12:00)
Can't live a day without my kindle app. This is my therapy, my life away from life.
Enjoy (by D.......k.......a on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 04:34:00)
I have had the app for many months. And I love it. The only thing I wish is that there was a way to store the books better. Like ones you have read, un read, want to reread so on. And I would like to make notes about the books the date I read it what I liked. Just some thoughts Thank you.
Love this app (by BirdieM on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 04:02:00)
Love having all of my books on hand in my phone. Always something to pass the time with if I'm stuck somewhere for a while.
Like the ebook/Audible sync. (by WildKnitter on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 03:22:00)
The newest version of the app appears to be more stable than previous versions. I also LOVE the syncing between the Kindle books and Audible. This way I can listen to a book during rush hour, then come home and pick up the ebook right where I left off!
Love the Kindle App (by P. I. on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 03:00:00)
Since we have moved to a smaller house, the Kindle has been such a blessing. I can still read all the books I want without worrying where I will store all the new books. It allows me to carry all the books I want to read without the bulk. Thank you, Kindle.
Need scrolling view (by Abindier on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 02:52:00)
Please add scrolling view. When reading lying down, it is much easier to move the text to the top of the screen then lift my iPad to see the bottom of the page.
Great Resource (by Melvin Barnes on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 02:45:00)
For an avid reader, kindle is great because I can have access to materials anywhere I have an electronic device. In addition, it saves me a considerable amount of physical space as well. I physical library exceeds over 5000 books. I didn't give 5 stars because I can't get all books in the electron format.
Love this app (by Wytsoxboy on Mon, 29 Dec 2014 00:52:00)
Really enjoy this kindle app.
Review for Kindle (by Baldridge on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 21:33:00)
Absolutely excellent! Very helpful to me. Lawrence Baldridge
Great app! (by mzbuttaf1y on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 20:48:00)
Great reading app. It easy to purchase and read books.
I love Kindle! (by southernmsgirl on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 18:47:00)
I don't have a Kindle device with a light, so when I get in bed, I just use my Kindle app on my iPhone so I don't wake my husband.
My favorite book reading app (by Lildoza04 on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 18:43:00)
I never have any problems with this app. Everything syncs between all of my devices. Earlier versions would sometimes crash, but I haven't had that issue in a long time. Works wonderfully, terrific selection.
Kindle for IPad (by Fastandfit22 on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 17:18:00)
I love to read, but my apartment already has 5 bookcases full of books so I decided to utilize Kindle to eliminate the space issue. Wasn't certain I would enjoy it as I love the touch and feel of a book and am constantly underlining and making notes in them. However, I have been delighted with the Kindle for IPad and would highly recommend it to those who read as much as I do. My IPad allows me to both highlight and underline and I love the fact I can download a new book in just seconds with my Amazon account. Love it!
Decent (by echamber on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 17:13:00)
I love just about everything in this app except that it has to load the position of the page EVERY TIME the app becomes in focus. Don't make the page disappear and then re-appear every time I load the app. Make the last page I read visible and do your sync'ing in the background. Fix this and it's a 5 star app.
Love it now that the summary is there! (by Erica Spangler on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 15:32:00)
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, Since adding the summary feature and the amazon link and goodreads link, I am changing my review from a 4 to a 5. I am glad that the summary was added after customer feedback was given. The reading speed is also awesome. It has made me kindle loyal over other reading apps.
Kindle app for iPad (by C8tee23 on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 14:30:00)
I love to read and have had every Kindle device since the very first generation my l Kindle Fire "died" this year and rather than buying another one I downloaded the app on my iPad. What can I say.....it is awesome. I can read all my kindle books and have my kindle library at my fingertips.
Excellent and convenient (by MeAGolf on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 13:54:00)
If it is not on Kindle I will probably not read it
Love it! (by RealSappy on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 13:43:00)
I'm glad I'm able to re-read a book and have it sync to the most recently read page instead of the furthest read page....on the app. If only it worked the same way with my actual Kindle.
Fine for what it is (by TheRealTomRose on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 10:24:00)
Kindle is basically a great app. I use it all the time. Unfortunately, it does not sync between devices, which is what will always prevent it from becoming a 5-star app. This is obviously leverage for selling Amazon e-books, (which do sync) which makes sense. Amazon is still in its infancy. When it grows up, it could rival Google and Apple. We'll know this is happening when things like kindle begin syncing between devices. That's how we'll know that Amazon has grown past selling books and moved on to conquering more of life. Keep it up Amazon. You'll get there.
Love this app!! (by Jazzygirl1107 on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 05:10:00)
So easy to use and lots of free books. Highly recommend this app!!!
Love Kindle (by Bobbibibb on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 03:41:00)
Easy reading features. Dictionary is great and the X-ray helps with multiple characters.
Love it! So convenient to have on my phone (by Katydid6994 on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 03:34:00)
Also, I love how it barely takes up storage. Great app!
Kindle App review (by Brenda Lee 9876 on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 03:16:00)
The kindle app is wonderful!! I would give it 10 stars if we had a 10! I have a Kindle Fire HD that I take almost every where I go but if I want to read a book on my phone I can do that also! Because sometimes I don't have but a few minutes and I usually have my phone in my hand! When I open my book on the kindle app it will go to the page I last read on my Kindle Fire! Nothing like having hundreds of books at your fingertips at all times! Especially if your like me and read every spare moment you have!
Love The Kindle App (by William Goggins on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 02:13:00)
Would give it five stars if there was a function added to scroll continuously. The page flipping is very irritating. I know it seems like a small deal but please consider it. Wonder if I'm the only one who feels this way.
Wonderful! (by Richard Regenburgh on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 01:51:00)
Have loved kindle since I was hospitalized for 3 months. Kindle freed me from depending on the hospital library. It's features are easy to use, and I particularly like the ability to adjust the font size
Great App (by Sam's grandma on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 01:34:00)
Even though I have an iPad I prefer to get my books through the Kindle app. There's better deals, it's easy to use, and their updates show they care about always looking for ways to give their customers the best app possible.
Great app (by Domo Steve on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 00:53:00)
Wonderful for reading and having your progress uploaded between different devices. My ipad progress is sent to my phone for reading on the go. My local library ebooks load into this app and work great. Never a glitch.
No problems (by Leah Lowe on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 00:18:00)
I have no problems with this app. It flows mostly seamlessly from my Kindle to my iPad to my iPhone, whichever I happen to be able to read at random times during the day.
Better than my Kindle Fire (by Toywords on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 21:41:00)
I started using the Kindle App for iPad when the internal chagrin hardware began to fail on my Kindle Fire. Despite having a 13% failure rate due to this issue with Kindle Fires, Amazon refuses to acknowledge this as a product defect and refuses to do anything about the problem. I started using my iPad mini for reading and no longer care that my Kindle works only intermittently. The app works as well as my Kindle. And my iPad doesn't have any problems charging or functioning. I am more endeared to Apple products and, after buying 15 Kindles for various relatives and friends, it will now be a long long time before I ever buy another electronic product made by Amazon.
I love it (by NoochesFam on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 21:39:00)
I use it all the time when I travel and have to pack light. It's not an actual kindle, which still reads better (I have and prefer the paper white after staring at a computer all day).
Exporting Person Doc highlights (by Jawbreaker Addict on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 20:49:00)
Where is the option to export highlights from the personal Docs we load into the app? The books I buy from Amazon are available from the Amazon website. While I don’t necessarily expect highlights from my personal Docs to be there, I do expect an export function from within the app. Otherwise, I’m not quite sure how useful the highlight feature is for Docs.
Love it (by BsWife on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 20:41:00)
It is so great to be able to read anywhere on any of my devices.
Kindle (by LMH23 on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 19:00:00)
I have been reading books on Kindle when it first became available. Since I travel frequently I love the fact I don't have to carry three to four books with me. Since I am on Amazon Prime, I can read books for free. I have purchased several Kindles as gifts. It is the best invention ever. I recommend reading books to any one who is an avid reader--easy to track what you are reading and it is always with you.
My go-to reading app (by SailinDoug on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 16:37:00)
I have several apps to choose from but always end up going to my Kindle app. It's on my iPhone, iPad(s), and my laptop. I always have a selection of reading material and can always pick up where I left off, no matter where I am or with which device. Sweet!
Great app (by Luv2Lose on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 15:22:00)
Love this app all around !
Love the Kindle app <3 (by Elaia-girl on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 12:26:00)
I love to read the kindle app lets me do it. Nuff said :-)
Great app on iPad (by Jushar on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 12:17:00)
I use this app on my iPad and thoroughly enjoy it as well as the iBooks or BN nook. Having all three of those apps, as well as the Overdrive for books from my library, I can read anything anywhere. Love it!
Great (by LMKMWood on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 11:50:00)
Wish I could buy books from my phone.
Love! (by Liberty719 on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 11:47:00)
I am in love with my kindle. But so is my daughter. :) I was very happy to see an app that I could put on my phone so I could read and she could play games. So much easier.
Love My Kindle App (by Paula Nicks on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 07:53:00)
I would have made it five star except I have one problem. I have over 300 books on my Kindle. It's hard to figure out which books I have read verses my new books. It will be nice to have a way to distinguish which and which books I have not read it.
Works Well (by Matt The Majestic on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 07:01:00)
Everything's easy to read on the app and I can have the same app on multiple devices. It's good, 'nuff said.
I love my Kindle reader. (by Noni9 on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 03:45:00)
I use it on my phone and my laptop. They are great:)!
Kindle (by Luuvy on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 03:22:00)
Awesome app. Easy to use great free books.
Best eReader anywhere (by Boogs Padre on Sat, 27 Dec 2014 02:11:00)
I have tried all of them. And this one is the most consistent, the most stable, and easiest to use of the bunch. Use what you want, but for me, there is nothing better.
Kudos to Amazon (by LFAWI on Fri, 26 Dec 2014 22:42:00)
Amazon has the best reading app in the business. They have come a long way to delivering a fantastic reader that allows the reader to look things up in the dictionary, on google, and on Wikipedia! Instant research on what we are being told in books. Authors take note!
Blurb (by Drexford on Fri, 26 Dec 2014 21:27:00)
Only thing I think could make the app better is to make the blurb about the book available, like the bleep/description of the book I read in Amazon when I'm choosing whether to buy the book. Sometimes I download several at a time and don't remember the description when I go in to decide which book to read.
Kindle app review-great (by Aibesse Tessema on Fri, 26 Dec 2014 20:38:00)
I'm a student and I use kindle app. I love that I can store articles and document to review in my kindle. It saves me back pain from the alternative heavy books/ paper I can be carrying. The only thing I dislike is the way the page numbers Are organized. It's different from actual books. Getting to a particular page... Is thus difficult... Overall great product.
