    Useless app cant even upload documents
  • by Carlos Santiago 08/09/2014
    The app itself is excellent but on Windows you can neither select any text nor know the meaning of a word as dictionary is not built-in. Fix this! Give us an update!!!

    Basics for books are there but doesn't support newspaper subscriptions and other keys features like search are still not there. Surely it is time that we got an update to this app?
  • by Mark 05/09/2014
    Pathetic app. There isn't even a search function, never mind any useful way to sort anything already owned.

    Why? The tablet version is not bad, but the phone version won't sync with it!

    Absolute ****. No books available for my country -UK. Very limited information and tacky.
  • by sarah 02/09/2014
    Bit glitchy to start but it got there in the end. All my books where I want them. Needs better organisation of books though rather than having to scroll through all the titles to find one I want.

    Absolute rubbish I can't even access my library I've had this problem a few times, tap the tile it comes up for one second then goes goes off, also text missing, reading the reviews no one has anything good to say about it, it's very annoying.

    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.
