    Just realised there's no dictionary functionality? Why is this? The other phones get this.

    I used to be able to read docs on my windows phone. Now they're all gone and when I go onto my account I have the option to send them to my android devices but not my windows. This is absolutely ridiculous. Why make things worse when you should be making things better. As for the supposedly kindly cloud reader, there is no such thing for my windows device so punished again. I cannot wait to get rid of this phone

    As the only way to read kindle books on windows phone we deserve better. It cant even turn pages properly without lopping off sentences. Incredibly annoying.

    Though it is good for reading my kindle books on my phone, the app often deletes my account and I have to sign in and download all my recent books again. The library interface is a bit ****** too.

    For quite some time, I've noticed that the page layout goes wrong. This results in a couple sentences disappearing from page to page. Quite annoying and requires exiting the app to remedy the issue, until the next time... Expected better
