    Amazon really screwed the pooch with this app, in fact the pooch had to lock itself in the bathroom and rub soothing aloe vera gel all over it's backside, not happy, I would give less than 1 star but you can't.

    The stick on loading bug has not been fixed. Lumia 1520 w8.1

    Doesn't have inbuilt dictionary like the pc version. Sometimes you need to change the page orientation to read a whole passage as it cuts out text. Not great, but as long as you have a reasonable vocabulary and can tell when the passage doesn't make sense so you need to reorient your phone to read the missing bits, it does the job.

    Works brilliantly on Lumia 1020. Loads fast. No problems so far.

    Wow. ****. Cant access docs. Limited functionality. Update and bring this in line with other platforms. Disappointing result from Amazon.

    Was working fine until I updated it. Now it won't open.

    Definitely needs some love, it would be fantastic to see support for my growing collection of comics that for now I can only read through the Kindle Cloud Reader.

    Still the poor cousin to ios/Android versions. Why does the Windows Phone version need to be absent of the fundamental features?

    I'm for Nook. Over Kindle. Sick and tired of the compromise. I'm not going back to ios and I'm sure as hell not going to be expanding my kindle library. There are so many alternatives now. Why put up with this
