    I just switched to Windows Phone from iPhone. This app is a HUGE step down and very disappointing. I have been unable to find a way to search the archive to download books. And with over 200 books, having to scroll through them is a pain. When the app starts, it doesn't return to the last opened book, but rather to the home screen. Come on Amazon, give proper attention the other (better) platform.

    Works great on a Nokia 521, not sure why all the negative reviews are so predominant, can access all my kindle books like any other device.

    Bad app. Needs to be updated to have all the features of other OS's. I buy books, I demand equal service on all of my devices (have Android tablet as well)

    Loja não abre dentro do app, mas no navegador e uma versão Mobile impossível de se usar.

    The app is functional and I've been using it quite frequently, but it noticeably lacks in features compared to iOS and Android versions.
