    This is terrible. Needs updating.

    Low functionality

    Not so good on Windows phone. I don't know maybe its very difficult or not possible to this platform to add features like correct sync between windows, ios and android, highlight, add comments, copy/paste. I like windows phone but it's a shame that such mainstream app doesn't function properly only on Windows phone. Started thinking of getting Android again.

    An e-reader without any search functionality? Pretty worthless for reference works. For a company with the resources of Amazon, it's a truly pathetic effort.

    Rubbish app,won't synchronise as it says "Licence Limit Exceeded" and even trying to read a book on it is tedious & arduous. A complete waste of time and rather insulting too

    Kind of good. Does the Job, but every few pages sentences go missing from the bottom of the page and I have to resize the text to get them back. The screen switches off when Im reading alot and occasionally some of the books in my library all show the same cover art. Sometimes when I close it down to reply to a text or something then open it straight back up, I get a message in the corner saying its syncing that never disappears. Overall it works but is sometimes frustrating to use.

    Looks Nice. Some extra functionality is needed, like search.
