    Used to be pretty good app to have on my windows phone, however now I'm unable to use my kindle unlimited, whereas before I had no problems and used it quite regularly

    Awful, very basic, not updated, lots of missing features. Do the Amazon developers have a grudge against Microsoft?

    Android app on my old phone was much better, no search facility and cant find dictionary function or highlights, shame!

    This app only allows very basic functionality. No highlighting or notes. Definitely not on par with the kindle app on android or ios. Amazon have dropped the ball on this app. The product manager (if one exists) should hang their head in shame for not giving this app the basic features other kindle apps have. Two stars, because you can read a book on it and synch, but that's about it.

    Pity cant have no star rating cos that's all it deserves. Been crashing on and off for weeks. Loses all your books from reading list so you have to try and remember what you downloaded and haven't read. Have over 700 inn library so really not much use. I guess amazon don't read any of these reviews or they might have tried fixing this utter pile of **** app

    No search means it is almost unusable, if you have a large kindle archive. How difficult can adding a search function be?
  • by Mark 02/05/2015
    Kindle UN-limited subscription? Not on windows phone. Also, there are still neither filters nor search

    This is terrible. Needs updating.
