    Amazon write poor quality software for Windows phone, so I will not sign up with Amazon prime or buy their e-books until they fix this. Netflix shows how it should be done.

    Basically works but I miss the dictionary.

    Abdolutely unusable for large technical books - app hangs "loading" when trying to go to next page

    Does not support manga or comics, which is what I downloaded it for.

    Why can't you give zero stars? That would still be too many. It won't let me download anything so it's being uninstalled as soon as I send this.

    Very nice. Would like to be able to highlight and annotate on the phone as I can on the Windows 8 tablet version. Also would like to be able to send screen shots or copy and paste for reference.

    **** app. There isn't even a search function, never mind any useful way to order the books (currently, either ALL at once or nothing).

    This is a very poor cousin to the andriod version of the app. Even the dictionary feature is missing. Amazon ought to be embarrassed that they've released this. It should at least be called kindle lite
