    My kindle isn't something I can always take with me, so I love the fact that I now have the ability to continue to read my books, whether I have my kindle or not.

    very good app I can practically get all my eBooks across devices and read them whenever but it's sad to see that this version of kindle laggs annotations and highlight abilities it should be included already I've seen it available on win 8.1 devices why not 7 & 8 too... It needs an update stop being picky and support windows too

    This app sucks it automatically deregistered it self on more than one occasion from my windows phone. Then I have to reregister it again then half my books can't be downloaded.And whenever I reboot my phone I can't reopen the app so I have to uninstall it and reinstall it but still some of my books cannot be downloaded and it never gives me a reason why. I never had this problem with my android phone. Amazon needs to look out for their windows phone customers better this is not acceptable.👎👎👎👎

    A shame Amazon does not seem to care too much about their customers using Windows phone.

    It's only ok... Amazon should really care more about updates though... Especially considering the cost of prime...

    As others had said, it skips the last few sentences, so i have to adjust the text size... But worst than that... There is no alphabetical grouping for either authors or books, nor any search capability.... and with over 1000 books, looking for the one i want is beyond painful. Please fix.
