    Badly needs an update to include dictionary, page orientation lock and prevent skipping of sentences/pages. Very bare bones app. After Sept 2014 update: Worse than ever. Crashes upon opening. Enough is enough amazon. You obviously dont care about windows users. Uninstalling.

    I can't give it zero stars but I would if I could. This app is embarrassing. You cant highlight, you cant comment, its very difficult to navigate and it actually cuts content. Sometimes you have to toggle between landscape mode to see all the text. This is a billion dollar company and they put out this pathetic app...its hard to believe. Better no app at all than a useless one.

    Se vc quiser ler, esse é o melhor, controlador de luminosidade, cores da paginas .... Perfeito, enquanto a abril não lança o IBA e a saraiva o LEV para WP.

    It keeps logging me out, so I have to re-download my books. It's a big pain. Please fix, and add highlights and notes

    Worked fine until last update. It deregistered itself and deleted all of the books from my phone.

    Many times in a book I'll 'turn' a page and the new page is blank. Moving to the next page shows content but you miss what is between. I've seen this in different books. If you go to the Kindle or PC you can read the missing content.

    I really tried to like this app. Sadly, it rarely ever gets used anymore. Fix the page jumping when turning a page and make a book search function. So tired of having to search for a title of a book in all my books, especially when the book starts with the letter U.

    There's no useful features in this. Bring the Windows 8.1 tablet version to phones! The tablet version already had highlighting and notes and proper syncing. Please bring these to phone.

    No highlights, no notes. I guess I need to get into mindless novels as that's all this is good for.
