3/8/2014Primitive - I've been using the Kindle apps since about 2008. This app is about as advanced as the original Kindle app for iPhone and iPod Touch 1st Gen in 2008. On Windows Phone, opening a book doesn't automatically sync to furthest page read. Also, no ability to highlight or make notes. Come on, Amazon. We know you can do better than this. I have the same problem on my Windows 8.1 tablet, but not my laptop, even though those come from the same app store.
3/8/2014How an anyone give this more than 2 stars?? Id give the app for androids 5 stars. This windows phone app is like having 100 pages of a 150 pg book. All the same complaints. Can't highlight, no dictionary, endless loading, bought book and it downloads but when I try to open it im kicked out of app back to home screen. Too many bugs never addressed and too many missing features.
3/8/2014As far as I can tell, when you have open a book, you cannot go back to the home screen of the app without archiving the open book. This needs to be fixed.
3/7/2014Works, but lots of never ending "loading..." messages. Also book text is skipped sometimes at page boundaries.
3/7/2014***STILL DOES NOT SYNC WORTH A DARN!!!*** Glad to have it but it needs work. Does not sync well. I bounce back and forth from my kindle to windows 8 kindle app to this one and I am always trying to find my place! Also, there is no option to highlight a word for lookup which I occasionally use in the win8 app and on the kindle. Come on amazon, I give you enough money every month...tighten it up!!!
3/7/2014Sucks. Freezes all the time. In desperate need of a tune up. Getting worse after updates
3/7/2014Having constant issues with my eBook "loading" and therefore can't read my book. Otherwise, when the app chooses to work, its good.
3/6/2014Inferior to iOS version. Cannot lookup words in a dictionary!?
3/6/2014All the recent negative reviews are spot on. Hard to believe Amazon doesn't quality test their app before launching an update. Or did they knowingly decided to send us a hugely buggy app?
3/6/2014On my Lumia 920 I cannot navigate in a book I can read just fine on my iPad. This is happening in all books. I tap to go to the next page and the app puts up a "loading" message that never goes away. Until this is corrected the app is unusable. :(
