    For me, Kindle on my tablet is easier to use than Kindle on my phone.

    Good when it works, but gets stuck. No way to get out of a book or get back to home screen. Requires multiple opens, closes, shutting off phone, even restarting. Very annoying.

    Garbage compared to the apps for other platforms. Can't upload from another device and there's no syncing.

    This app is utter ****. It doesn't even work half the bloody time, and crashes every so often and I have to uninstall/reinstall then download all my books again. Someone needs to update this ****.

    This app offers a passable reading experience for Amazon eBooks. Delivery of books from the Kindle store has been trouble-free for me. The app provides basic choices of page/text color, font size, margins and line spacing. Navigation is smooth. It links to the Kindle Store mobile site for shopping on the phone. Readers who want to highlight or annotate their books will be severely disappointed, however. Those features are lacking. I only eread on my phone, so can't comment on synching. In short, gets the job done only in the most fundamental way.

    Hey so this app use to work amazingly but for some reason it logged me out and won't let me back in and I know I have the right password it works on my browser so *** amazon type people get you shitty app working I am missing my stories!!!!!!

    This app USED to work wonderfully, but now it freezes up when you try to turn pages or go to the table of contents, etc. Hopefully it gets patched soon. I'd like to be able to use the app again! Update 8/15/14 I bought the 1520 and hopes that the bugs had been fixed, but now the app crashes when I click on the book I want to read. It takes forever to sync as well. It sucks cause this app used to work, and I could read with out it skipping lines/paragraphs, but now its practically useless. I keep hoping they will patch it, but I'm starting to give up.

    It is very convenient to have access to a Kindle library on a phone. However this implementation of the Kindle software has a number of annoying bugs, only one of which really has a substantial impact on usability, but the others still are a bit of a hassle. The major bug has made it impossible for me to open one of my Kindle books: the phone cycles for a few seconds as if it is trying to open the book, but then the Kindle software shuts down, sending me back to the start screen. One of the minor bugs: someone apparently forgot to include a routine to check when Kindle is running in the background and, if you try to open Kindle again (forgetting about the instance running in the background), the software spazzes out and has trouble calling up the first screen of the Kindle app.

    Unusable garbage. It's disgraceful that this app is in the store at all.

    I guess all the bad reviews were from older versions of this. Nothing flashy here, but it works just fine for what I want: To read books on my phone.
