    Basic first attempt and no support thereafter.
  • by Eric 9/14/2014
    Please add highlighting support. The features on this version are so limited compared to the iOS and Android versions it really makes it difficult to enjoy my Kindle Library on my Windows Phone.

    No highlight option, no note, no dictionary, etc.
  • by Nigel 9/14/2014
    Generally works well. Only feature, I'm really missing is the ability to highlight & share passages/ notes.

    On a Nokia Lumia 520 the page breaks are wrong. Sometimes there will be 5-7 words missing when you turn the page and if you alter the text size you see that those words were there but "below" the screen.

    Well its a crippled app. If you're in India try using flipkarts ebooks app, which renders books correctly and supports highlights and has an in built dictionary, none of which happen to be a part of kindle app for windows phone.

    I put two stars because I've never actually used the app. I can't even get books on here, not because of the app, but because the amazon kindle store doesn't even let you use this. Try to buy a book or a free sample, and it just wont let you. Its stupid. Give support for your own apps, amazon.

    Barely functional. Cannot highlight. Rendering doesn't take advantage of my Lumia 1050. Needs a real update.
