    **** 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

    As a basic reader, in addition to a kindle, it works well. Sometimes have to flick between landscape and portrait mode to re-set the text flow if it misses a line or two.

    Doesn't allow me to read half of the books I've got on my actual Kindle (lending library books for example). Couple that with the fact the store is the clunky web based version means it's all rather disappointing.

    Seems okay. Once I figured out that most of my books were in archive, and that it was easy to pull them out, all good. It goes to your last synched page from whatever device. Apparently no dictionary function but I don't use that anyway.

    I find myself Disappointed by this app. Too buggy by far! Constantly finding myself scrolling back to make missing text load. I regularly have to close and then reopen the app in order to reload the main menu which fails to make an appearance. Purchased books no longer download onto my Nokia 930 running WP 8.1 Cyan. BOOOOOOOO!

    Poor poor app! Very disappointing! Not on par with the other platforms like android. WHERE IS THE DICTIONARY LINK? PLEASE UPDATE AND SERIOUSLY IMPROVE INTERFACE.
