    Windows version is very poor. App is buggy and not very user friendly.

    I wish the market was in the app itself.

    I love being able to read books on my phone but it is absolute **** that I can't buy books on this stupid app! When I had an android phone there was no problem getting a book right away after I finished the last one but this ridiculous app says you can shop in the Kindle store but you can't buy anything! IPhones have the same problem but I understood that because Apple sucks. This is completely inexcusable! Fix it!

    I have no idea how much of I've missed of books I've read because this thing drops paragraphs randomly when changing pages. A lot of times it drops parts of sentences too. I'm really starting to wonder if its impossible to write an app that works properly on a Windows phone.

    Bought a book, now can't read it because it says I have to update my app, though there isn't one available. I loved this app before now, so ill give it 2 stars. Please fix this

    Kindle for Windows phone is terrible - apparently designed to force you to buy a Fire phone to read Kindle books. Here are things you CAN'T do on Windows Kindle that you used to be able to do on iPhone Kindle: 1) zoom / enlarge a table or graphic (this disability makes some existing books unusable) 2) search (only way to find something is to flip thru pages) 3) highlight 4) copy I hear that Amazon has crippled the Kindle app for Android and Apple environments, too, to make their Fire phone or their Nook the only way to really use your library of Kindle books. I hope someone will create an app that restores Kindle functionality - I would rather BUY a 3rd party app than cave in to this coercive marketing from Amazon!

    Terrible application. I bought many books on the amazon but on the windows phone I'm unable to read them. :-(

    I have had this app for about a month and cannot even use it. When I attempt to load a book the app just takes you back to the home screen cause it crashes.
