    Right now, this app crashes every time I try to open it. No issues until today after finishing two books without a glitch. Not happy at all. I just added some other books and cannot get to them.

    I would give this app 5 stars, but everytime I start a chapter the page directly after wards is blank. If you could fix that, this would be an amazing app.

    This app is great... When it works. Trying to start it up and I can't, it just crashes immediately. Please fix this bug. Im using a Lumia 1520.

    Shame on you amazon. Worst app ever.

    Please add 'recent' and search to archived items. I have more than 1,000 archived books and to have to scroll all the way to 'W' to download one is crazy. Also, please update to accommodate your new Kindle Unlimited program, of which I am a paying member. Many thanks!!

    Works great on my Lumia 820. Syncs perfectly. Works as expected. Amazon does a very good job making this work on so many platforms. Excellent!!

    It works, but it's remarkably basic. I'm not familiar with any other Kindle products, but this seems kind of primitive. You get a choice of three color schemes and a couple of fount sizes, and that's it. Being able to choose at least one sans-serif font for reading on a small screen seems like a no-brainer, bit it's not an option.

    Works decently well for the most part, but it will often skip a few words or sometimes an entire sentence when I go to the next page, requiring me to adjust the text size to bring back the missing text. I'd also love to get text-to-speech in this app.
