    Doesn't support Amazon.cn account.

    There is no easy way to search my collection. I have to literally scroll through hundreds of books, and for some reason not all of my books show up on here. Also, you can't highlight. And the text is messed up. Some lines of text get cut off from the bottom, and some pages are completely blank. I have to keep readjusting the font size to try to read the missing lines, and even that doesn't work all the time. One thing I do like is the option to have black screen, that is great for reading I the dark when I don't want a lot of light.

    If I could give less, I would. I have to uninstall, then install to even use this darn app. Please fix it...

    Good app. Works well for my needs.

    Basic reading functionality is there, but no Audible support and TERRIBLE archive screen (you have to scroll through all your books, there's no jumping to a letter or searching your archive). Designed for people who only own a few books.
