    Good app, but UI is shocking.

    Pathetic app. Does not work offline as desperate to sync and then crashes. Useless app unless you have internet all the time. Amazon should be ashamed, until this app works I'll be using an alternative app, noticed kobo is there, I'll try that until this mess is fixed.

    This works really well but I can't seem to download the free books I have using my Amazon Prime account which is a little disappointing.

    Love the app. Easy reading for text-only books, excellent navigation too. Just one thing that needs improvement. Images. They're always small, you can't zoom in or anything. I have several reference books that use pictorial illustration which one can barely make out.

    I think this is the best app. Thanks for developing such an app

    I like the app, but there is no highlight or annotating support. This would greatly improve the app, especially since I use it alot.

    Lines are often missing from books. Have to resize text to get the missing words to show. Occasionally throws up an entire blank page and its very hard to read what is supposed to be there

    As an e-reader is OK. But you cannot make comments, as you do in the same app for iPhone or iPad, nor can you highlight text, copy or share it on the web...

    Still no personal documents support. Uninstalling.

    Awesome app. Would be lost without it. A must if you own a kindle.
