    Was great but now it stops working soon after installation, so two stars. The live tile just shows the background and won't load the app, likewise the app won't load from the app list. It's been doing this since the upgrade to 8.1 but maybe due to the app having been moved to the SD card. It will be interesting to see if it now works having been put back into the phone storage. Having now moved it back on to the phone's storage it seems to be working properly so now back up to three stars. Why three? Because some titles (some of the free science/technical/maths texts) don't work with this app but all my literature does

    Awful. Cannot transfer my own books or documents to it. Going to try Bookvisor instead

    This is not free

    The app is continuously "loading" but in reality making a data connection. Functions only good when disabling the data connection. Advice: use another reader and remove the obnoxious drm from the books you bought through amazon.

    Doesn't work with comics which is a problem cause that's mainly what I own on it and seeing as I don't have a kindle any more I cant read them again

    Have to keep restarting the app because the words on the next page don't follow on from the previous page. It only start happening after latest update.

    Very poor. Cant highlight or make notes 😒

    The trouble is you cannot use it to read books that you have already bought on another device, or downloaded, so i'm afraid it doesn't do what i want
