    This is horrible. I've had to reinstall it three times. There is no sort function. I'd like to give it a -1.

    Still after all these years bad. Wished they put as much effort into making this app as they made the Android and IOS... Also they need to have a scroll option instead of just a flip option...

    Terrible problems with blank pages and missing chunks of text makes most books unreadable. Over the years the problem has been getting worse in my experience. Time to find a new reader (and a new store I suppose).

    Is there any way to get a non-purchased book (ie library loaned) kindle book onto this app? This is very frustrating. My synced docs do not show up in my archive either. This app is hands down the best on Android and iOS but it is very not so much on Windows phone.

    Missing Features: Highlight Notes Dictionary Rotation lock Search(***?!) In-app purchasing (though I think other versions also don't support) (list updated periodically) Bugs: Drops lines or whole pages after resizing text. Must restart app or page back and forth to get missing text back. Issues downloading, especially over GSM. Pros: Sync works fine for me. The live tile is nice.

    (revising my earlier review downward - having to constantly switch font sizes just to able read all the words is inexcusable. Come on Amazon, FUX THIS!!!) 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.

    I bought a dictionary in Amazon but couldn't find the "search" option in the app. Why you didn't remind me if my Win Phone 8 version cannot use dictionary?

    The upgrade fixed nothing. Still crashes when opening... Cannot use at all, even after deleting and reinstalling many many times. Was my favorite up until four months ago when it just quit working all together.
