    This is a browser, not an app.

    This app is super buggy. Text doesn't appear on the page at times, other times, a line or two will go missing between pages! Way to ruin immersion, Amazon.

    JUNK. APP DISAPPEARS. Nokia Lumia 635, 8.1, app disappeared about a week after initial install. No problem, just deleted and reinstalled (all 160 books). Once is fine, twice is annoying, but six times over the past two weeks?! JUNK APP. DISAPPOINTED customer.

    It works well enough for reading books. It would just be nice if it at least had all the features the android app has. Such as rotation lock and being able to tell the time with out getting out of the app.

    For me, Kindle on my tablet is easier to use than Kindle on my phone.

    Good when it works, but gets stuck. No way to get out of a book or get back to home screen. Requires multiple opens, closes, shutting off phone, even restarting. Very annoying.

    Garbage compared to the apps for other platforms. Can't upload from another device and there's no syncing.

    This app is utter ****. It doesn't even work half the bloody time, and crashes every so often and I have to uninstall/reinstall then download all my books again. Someone needs to update this ****.

    This app offers a passable reading experience for Amazon eBooks. Delivery of books from the Kindle store has been trouble-free for me. The app provides basic choices of page/text color, font size, margins and line spacing. Navigation is smooth. It links to the Kindle Store mobile site for shopping on the phone. Readers who want to highlight or annotate their books will be severely disappointed, however. Those features are lacking. I only eread on my phone, so can't comment on synching. In short, gets the job done only in the most fundamental way.
