5/22/2013Sometimes requires one to force a sync with books on other platforms, but, generally satisfied with this app.
5/21/2013I'd like to rate this higher because I love having it available on my phone. However the app doesn't keep track of line count correctly. Every few pages it will drop a line at the end of the screen, or partially print one, no matter what font size is being used. This is a basic issue that should have been fixed long ago.
5/21/2013I love the selection of free books, and I love the sepia background :D Overall I enjoy this app, but it is a bit buggy--sometimes a page will go blank, or a line will be missing, but all it takes is turning to landscape and back again (or vice versa) to fix. A way to delete a book I don't want anymore would be great, though (I would like to use the archive for books I have read and would read again, but use it for books I don't like instead, which sucks and is a waste of space). I do like that I can dog-ear a book, though, in addition to Whispersync keeping my place.
5/21/2013This crashing issue needs to be fixed asap. I like to read at my desk :D now I have to work since I can't read my book :(
5/19/2013Good app, just wish Amazon had a bigger selection of apps on windows phone specifically Cloud Player.
5/19/2013If there is a way to organize my library with this, I must be blind. It's just a huge list of books and I can't find anything!
5/19/2013I love it but my only complaint is that sometimes when I open the book it doesn't show that pages but all the rest if the pages. If they would fix that little issue I would super happy
5/18/2013App is broken on my Lumia 920. Won't open.
5/18/2013I love to read and with this app on my phone I can read everywhere
