    I tried getting a few free books. But they aren't supported by my phone (Windows 1020) 👎

    No app for Windows 8.1 phones, so books that are available don't always work

    This is a light kindle reader. Pretty simple. Unfortunately, though, it has quite many limitations, such as the inability to turn pages using the volume buttons, the lack of dictionary, and on top of all it doesn't allow us to comment or highlight. This ask means that you can only use this app only to accompany other gadgets that have native Kindle readers. Having said that, I'm still thank though to the creators of this app considering that this is a free app. I wouldn't give a one star for a free helpful ago that I can't create myself 😁

    I just got into reading eBooks on my devices. I love the experience and the linked Kindle store, I've been reading on my Windows phone and tablet, so syncing is also very nice. 3 stars because comic books do not seem to load on my Windows phone. Otherwise is be ordering comic books on this app. Normal reading is great though.

    I have this for my windows phone. I can read books okay ish but I also read comic books from time to time and I can't read that in my phone which is annoying. Also the app is just largely buggy.

    The app worked pretty good--except for skipping parts of sentences again and again as you read through the book. After the update, I cannot buy a book. Only can read what I already have purchased.

    It is completely useless.

    After using this app there were unauthorized charges made on my credit card by Amazon for items I did not order. Getting these charges reversed has been a problem.
