    Are you planning to visit a Renaissance fair in 2 weeks and want to go in style? Why not read up on some of the costumes of the era? This will give you the inspiration you need for your costume. I love using this app - you can find just about any book on it!

    When I have to find the right book, whether it's Cliff's Notes or another type of book, this is the app I use. Not only are the prices affordable, but they are so easy to take with me anywhere. It's also a lot easier than carrying 5 physical books.

    Even though I have an Amazon Kindle, I have 2 other devices that aren't Kindles, so having this app on them makes it handy. This way I can read my 1,000s of books anywhere I am with any device I am on.

  • Kindle is great, but Kindle Unlimited has made it AMAZING!!😍😍📖 Jan 4, 2022

    By ElizabethHawkins
    I have always been a bookworm but times are tough, I can’t afford to go buy books to read right now, especially considering I can’t reread something I’ve already read. I can’t get into it if I know what’s going to happen, so I definitely can’t afford to spend the amount of money they now cost to only get use one time.. Plus I have “feral kids” (if you know, you KNOW but if not, look it up😅).. but Kindle Unlimited allows you to pay so much per month & “borrow” as many books as your heart desires, read, return, & replace with another good book that sparks your interest. And there are all types of books too, healing, self help, thriller, psychological thriller, fantasy, etc. Memoirs, etc. I highly recommend “If You Tell” by Gregg Olsen. It’s a memoir its a true story but be forewarned that it isn’t for the weak, these people went through horrible things, be ready to cry like i did. 🥺 it was beautifully written, & these victims/survivors NEED their story to get out there & the mom is being released this year and they want everyone to be warned, this woman may kill again. Anyways, if you’re wondering if you should get it or not, here is your sign: DO IT, & GET KINDLE UNLIMITED. They offer a free trial to show you how great it is so you can try it for free and read a months worth of books for free! Thank me later, you’re welcome.😊

    The app is an amazing eReader which would explain it's popularity. The platform works as well on other smart devices as it does on The Kindle itself. It has a wide variety of books self, published and mainstream. It offers the ability to sync across multiple devices. And where available will offer massive discounts on Audible audio version. The only downside , for me, is that there sre too many notifications and no way to know exactly what notifications are coming in and why .

  • I absolutely LOVE kindle unlimited! Jun 20, 2021

    By GorgousDisaster
    I’ve always enjoyed reading, but kindle unlimited has made it so much easier to read while being a stay at home mom to an almost two year old. I LOVE paper books, but I’m ocd about my pages/book getting bent up.. 😵‍💫 Kindle unlimited also helped me discover so many new authors and amazing stories I probably would have never read because I’ve never heard of them before. Kindle unlimited also suggests books to you based on books you’ve already read and I have yet to be disappointed (I enjoy horror, the more aggressive/suspenseful, the better). Some little things I enjoy about this app are the customization options as well as streak keeper. Some examples of the customizing options are being able to change the view to white pages, black pages, and even newsprint pages. You can also display the percentage of completion, hours/minutes estimated based off your reading speed for completing both each chapter as well as cover to cover and obviously page number out of total pages. The streak tracker is really cool because it lets you know how many books/which titles you’ve completed each year, tells you how many days/months in a row you’ve been reading, and encourages you to keep reading. For the price of one book a month, what is there to lose..? 😌

    I get a lot of use out of the Kindle app. Unfortunately I've had a problem with their feature that purports to track how many consecutive days I've read some Kindle content. It has failed to log a few days, incorrectly breaking the consecutive days string. Nearest I've been able to figure out is that it seems to be defining a day as midnight to midnight California time, regardless of the user's actual time zone. The result is that for me a day in this tracker runs 2am to 2am.
  • Voiceover issues.. Mar 11, 2020

    By iPhone User One
    I have a hard time reading visually, so for years I have been using the iPhone's Voice Over (two finger swipe down, once you turn it on in iPhone's Accessibility settings located in General), to read my my Kindle eBooks, but in the past year or so it won't advance to the next page unless you leave the screen on in your pocket, and there are so many things that seem to randomly stop the voiceover from working properly, and sometimes cut out words here and there, and other times it just stops working altogether. I wish this feature worked more seamlessly. Other than that, I also find it harder now than ever before to find my own books that I've already purchased. There used to be an easy section to see all the books you own that are on the cloud, and another section to see all the ones that have been downloaded to your device, ready to read. Now it's really confusing and I have to search for my books. Much less user friendly and it looks like it's an attempt at trying to get you to buy more books. I hope they change this and make it easier or more straight forward to just see your own books, and not force you to look at all the books you don't own yet.
  • Highlighting May 4, 2020

    By Rosaa
    I have been a kindle app user for many years. There have been improvements to the app that have kept me as a loyal user. Here’s one request I have (and I know it’s an atypical request and it may not ever be fixed but it’s worth asking): I browse titles, download samples, read samples, and naturally highlight and make notes as I read, whether the book is a sample or owned by me; if I like a book and want to read the full book, then I proceed to purchase it; the problem for me (and maybe no one else?) is when I purchase a book, my notes and highlights get deleted because the sample book is removed from my library and replaced with a full copy; but how can I transfer the highlights and notes? Is there a way, and if not, then can I keep the sample as well? The only workaround I can think of is to copy and paste to a document or to screen capture my notes and highlights to transfer to maintain a copy of them. These are tedious workarounds, and would love a solution. Yes, someone might ask, But why are you highlighting and making notes on a sample book? To which my response is, if I’m really into a book, I tend to make notes and highlights which means I will in turn want a full copy, which means I’m losing out on my notes and the moment I had going with the sample copy. This isn’t a high priority request, but would love an alternate workaround or solution. Thanks!

    The Kindle app is great! They send you book recommendations to choose from. Some are free or very low prices. I like using Book Bub for recommendations also; there is always a free book to choose from. You choose the type of books you like to read by category. The Kindle app is easy to use and convenient.
  • Love the app but suggested titles not working properly Nov 4, 2021

    By piperpottamus
    I will start by saying I love being able to use this app to read anywhere at any time. Solid collection of books for kindle unlimited. Problem- the function that shows books other customers who have read the title have also read has been erratic for at least a month. This is a big deal to me, because it helps me select my next title. Sometimes it doesn’t load at all, and a spinning circle appears. When the function is working, it only shows the full selection of those recommended titles if it is the first book I have clicked on for info. For all subsequent books, it only shows 3 titles. This is a bummer. I have found that if I close the app entirely, and reopen, I can click a different book and once again, see a full selection of recommendations based on other readers. If I don’t completely close the app out between each book I browse, I am again limited to three suggestions. Mostly, now, I am getting the spinning circle and nothing is loading. Bonus points- when you click to see one of the three kindle chart recommendations at the end of a book’s description, there is now a tab up to that allows the reader to select between top 100, new releases, most wished for, etc. This has broadened the # of selections under a specific topic, which I truly appreciate!
  • I see work is being done on library functionality, but Sep 28, 2021

    By Diamondstud32
    As an avid reader, I’d like to see more improvements for storing, organizing and finding books in my Kindle library in order to make reading Kindle books more enjoyable. 1) There should be a way to bring the categories into the library so I can filter by category and sub-category. For example: category Mystery; subcategory Police Procedural. I can shop for them this way in the Kindle store, I want to be able to view my library the same way. 2). There needs to be a way to quickly see which books have been read, and which have not. 3) There should be a private section in my kindle library that can't be seen by anyone I hand my phone or tablet to. 4) I'd like a way to easily view a series of books in order. It looks like this is being done, but it doesn’t seem to work. Also, I’d like to be able to easily go to the next book in the series. Currently, when I finish a book, a page comes up showing the title and synopsis of the next book in the series. (Thanks for adding that, it has helped a bit to at least see the title of the next book in order). Ideally though, I’d like to be able to select the next book (if in my library) and be able to open it from there. Instead, I have to search my library. Thanks for considering there suggestions.

    OK reading app but horrible for searching or organizing your library. And now you only get 6 books from your library in search results and the rest are from the Kindle store encouraging you to buy more books. I just want to find that one book I read 5 years ago and want to read again. I'd rather read in Google books, Libby, or overdrive!

    This review is strickly for vella. I like it & i like the stories but its just not cost affective. Buying the lowest option should give you almost 8 chapters...i got 5 & that was with having 35coins after my intial free ones. So my money was only good for 4 chapters & thats half of what i should have gotten. I am not happy with the amount of chapters i was able to unlock for the price i paid. I will stick with my unlimited sub.
  • eReader developers Jul 25, 2020

    By Don2
    As time passes, there will be increasing demand from users for the full implementation of HTML5, CSS3, and ePub3 in reflowable-text eReaders. The features that users could be experiencing as they read include video, audio, JavaScript, background images, embedded fonts, and much more. The current requirement that eBooks with embedded media use the fixed-layout format is inappropriate when text-based eBooks have media designed to flow along with the text. That requirement can result in many consecutive pages of fixed-layout text that can’t be resized. Fixed-layout is for magazine-type eBooks. The current implementation of reflowable text is for text-only eBooks, like traditional novels. There should be a third option available that utilizes all the features of ePub3. Currently, the display of media in reflowable-text eReaders is very haphazard, with images or videos halfway off the page or not displayed at all. Scripts in JavaScript are ignored or appear as text in the body text. If a user pays extra for a multimedia eBook, they would like to experience the media they paid for. Please provide users and designers a third option, multimedia-text, in addition to reflowable-text and fixed-layout. Thinking that reflowable-text eBooks don’t need video or audio is like Norma Desmond saying she’d had the eyes of the world but they wanted their ears too. Was she right? Movies don’t need soundtracks? Please allow eReaders to continue evolving.

    This app is absolutely garbage. I downloaded the PC version and any highlights or notes you make you can't see. Apparently this is a common problem and you have to download an older version through third parties which I don't want to do. It wasn't so bad until all the highlights and notes I made that I could not see on the PC I could not see on any other device either. In other words it quit syncing and nobody knows why. I have two tickets right now with tech support concerning this program.

    I have Prime Reading but any time I try to read any book for free in their specific catalog, I am forced to try Kindle Unlimited for 30 days. There's no place for me to just download the book, click that I have Prime Reading, or skip the Kindle Unlimited ad. So difficult just to read any books for free with Prime Reading. Uninstalling.

    Not versatile or flexible enough. I'm using this app on a Chromebook Flex and I need this app to work both in tablet mode and laptop mode. I wish there were a way I could anchor it or resize the window without the menus being completely useless, and I wish it also had stylus capabilities so that I can add highlights without going into some secret menu. I'm glad I can use it for school, but it is a headache to navigate.

Updated 2 days ago 3-30-2020 and it erased all my books, continously freezes up when I try to download books from my library. Very unsatisfied. Kobo or nook is where I'm going. Wasted a lot of money with kindle. Wish I could give 0 stars. 1-11-2022 and this app is still garbage
  • hate the new home page Jan 22, 2020

    By McDonna
    Before the latest update I would have given the app a 4-star rating as it mostly works pretty well. But now when I open the app, instead of showing me my books it puts me on their new Home screen. It is nothing more than a way to try to sell me more books, which is annoying because I choose books from my browser and I am opening the app so that I can READ them. Ironically they don’t even let you buy books from the app even if I were in a shopping mood, and as usual they have no idea what I might be looking to buy so it is nothing but a waste of time. I have spent many hundreds of dollars on their books and this greedy ploy just makes me want to find a different app that will allow to read them without encountering ads every bloody time I open the app. This is the price we pay for supporting a monopoly—they control the books and prices and now can’t even provide a clean and efficient way to read them. I know this seems like an overreaction but I read whenever I have a few minutes waiting in line or wherever, and I keep opening it to this ad page and thinking “huh?” and then remembering oh yeah I need to find and click the Library button so I’ve just lost a precious bit of my reading time.
  • Add this feature Jan 11, 2021

    By ElliottReveiws
    I am a little late into the kindle craze, but after buying a new iPad for school I decided to buy all my books digitally. It was such a pleasure to only carry my iPad and have all my books for class with me. Until the dreaded kindle feature I soon discovered... there are no page numbers on some books, my professor sends out an email “read page 145 to 158 of your required textbook” sounds like a simple task. Unfortunately on kindle all books are not required to put real page numbers so I am at lost. I emailed my professor, but she is not going out of her way to send me screen shots on where to start and end in the textbook I purchased. So, can the developers at kindle require real numbered pages to all books. I want to see at the bottom of the page “page. X from physical book” or just print it in the actual text where a real page from the book ends. Basically digital kindle books are like buying a book with the page numbers cut off. I purchased 7 books for classes and only 1 has real page numbers.
  • One star so maybe someone will change it Oct 19, 2020

    By SkimanH
    It’s annoying. I spend $80 on a textbook that’s great! But then I download it onto my kindle on my brand new IPad Pro and the app barely has 10 features. I usually keep the iPad sideways. The thing is 13” wide with awesome 4K+ display, and here i am staring at 2/3s of a page in what would be size 30 font. It’s like this app is made for mobile! Not a large tablet. Totally different. In fact, etexts were part of the reason I bought an iPad to begin with. I wish i could zoom out on the page to the desired distance (can easily fit a whole page while sideways, this display is incredible) but it just snaps back to full page view with only 2/3s of the page on screen. In fact what i want most is to fit TWO-WHOLE pages on a sideways screen, in columns format like a regular old book. Hope they innovate! Bc fancy tech is great and all but can you PLEASE build out the platforms to be consistent with the incredible capabilities of devices these days? It’s really basic stuff, just making a decent platform for customers spending $$$ on kindle books is the least they could do. Thanks.

  • Enhancement suggestions Sep 12, 2019

    By zeldaqwer
    I really like the kindle app and am an avid reader. With that said there a number of enhancements that I would like to see. I have had 4 different kindles (keyboard, touch, paper white, and oasis) and an early Sony E reader. I read primarily on my iPad. Although the dictionary and highlighting are occasionally helpful. It would be nice to have a user setting to turn this off so I don’t constantly have this show up because my hand slips when holding my tablet. I still think you need a better collection hierarchy. I have 3000+ books in my library and it would be nice to organize by author or genre and then have one or more specific levels. Some authors write romance, mystery, and paranormal. This should not be too hard with the database capabilities available. It would also be nice if there was an easier way to add multiple books to a collection. A setting to automatically remove a downloaded book after completion would also be helpful. Just a few ideas. I have a current big investment in kindle but if somebody else has a good library organization capability I might move on since this is really holding things back. With hard copy books I can organize my shelves how I want, electronic organization should be even easier.

What a great way to have access to tons of fantastic books without spending a lot of money on books you may not want to read again. Or how about checking out new genres that you think you might like but haven’t had an easy way to do it. Or being able to read books across devices? Load a book on your phone, your iPhone, your tablet, your iPad, your pc; any or all of them. You are usually carrying one of these around with you anyway. Just like the library but right at your fingertips! There is a trial period. So I would say check it out. Got 5 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour? Read anytime, anywhere. Please don’t get me wrong. I love books, actual books: the feel of them in my hands; turning pages; the scent of paper and ink and bindings; the history of time and the people who read the exact book I am holding; the entire tactile act of reading an actual book. This is but an option. And a very good one! So if your life is busy and your time is limited, waiting in a doctor’s office, sitting on a bus, in line picking up the kids at school…anywhere…anytime… Read a Book!

    Kindle is fantastic! although I should use it more often, when I do I'm very pleased with the performance of the Kindle app. I love the first reads every month I get for free being a member of Kindle unlimited, the selections are endless. there are few books that I really like that I wish they would put on a better sell, but I will buy my time. I give Kendall five stars ⭐🌟⭐🌟⭐
  • Been using since Kindle began no problems Jun 29, 2018

    By givemeacbreakwithenicknames
    I am a long term user of kindle. It was the first truly successful e reader. I had searched for and tried other systems. Electronic publishing seemed inevitable and an excellent use of resources. I had a library full of books and was often on waiting lists at the public library. Our family fought over special books and were always losing them. When I found out one book could be read simultaneously by several family members I was hooked. We bought the special kindle readers for all four of us and then added the apps for phones tablets and computers. I have never had a problem managing my library with both free and purchased content. Kudos. Just hope the authors are getting a fair share. Editing at publishing houses is still important but publishers costs should be very much lower with no printing, no paper, no delivery costs. All ads are media driven. Lower production costs should mean lower prices without penalizing the author, maybe even increasing the payments. In summary, the kindle system has been efficient and bug free for me ever since it began. I still use kindles to read outdoors, and love always having my library with my phone when I am stuck somewhere and need to wait.
  • Great perspective on living with a disability Jan 31, 2021

    By Scraptraci
    Shane Burcaw was dealt with a tough challenge at birth. He has a form of muscular dystrophy that has confined him to a wheelchair from a young age. Instead of feeling sorry for himself and the challenges he faces he has taken a very positive outlook on the situation. In fact I’d say it’s an amazing outlook considering the difficulty he faces In doing even the most badic things. Rather than focusing on his differences he has just adapted and finds a way to Join into the typical activities of his peers. He learned early on that humor and laughter break down lots of the barriers many in wheelchairs face. He uses humor and his personality to demonstrate he’s just a typical guy with a great attitude. He is physically disabled but not mentally or socially and he wants others he meets to realize this as well. Shane is inspiring and I wish him all the best with his non profit and hope he continues to inspire and provide hope through his speaking and his blog. The book is very well written and his anecdotes will have you laughing at loud This book is a pragmatic and positive outlook on dealing with an incurable disease. It is poignant at its truths but doesn’t leave you feeling depressed but rather inspired and hopeful

    The app is an amazing eReader which would explain it's popularity. The platform works as well on other smart devices as it does on The Kindle itself. It has a wide variety of books self, published and mainstream. It offers the ability to sync across multiple devices. And where available will offer massive discounts on Audible audio version. The only downside , for me, is that there sre too many notifications and no way to know exactly what notifications are coming in and why .
  • Highlighting May 4, 2020

    By Rosaa
    I have been a kindle app user for many years. There have been improvements to the app that have kept me as a loyal user. Here’s one request I have (and I know it’s an atypical request and it may not ever be fixed but it’s worth asking): I browse titles, download samples, read samples, and naturally highlight and make notes as I read, whether the book is a sample or owned by me; if I like a book and want to read the full book, then I proceed to purchase it; the problem for me (and maybe no one else?) is when I purchase a book, my notes and highlights get deleted because the sample book is removed from my library and replaced with a full copy; but how can I transfer the highlights and notes? Is there a way, and if not, then can I keep the sample as well? The only workaround I can think of is to copy and paste to a document or to screen capture my notes and highlights to transfer to maintain a copy of them. These are tedious workarounds, and would love a solution. Yes, someone might ask, But why are you highlighting and making notes on a sample book? To which my response is, if I’m really into a book, I tend to make notes and highlights which means I will in turn want a full copy, which means I’m losing out on my notes and the moment I had going with the sample copy. This isn’t a high priority request, but would love an alternate workaround or solution. Thanks!
  • Love the app but suggested titles not working properly Nov 4, 2021

    By piperpottamus
    I will start by saying I love being able to use this app to read anywhere at any time. Solid collection of books for kindle unlimited. Problem- the function that shows books other customers who have read the title have also read has been erratic for at least a month. This is a big deal to me, because it helps me select my next title. Sometimes it doesn’t load at all, and a spinning circle appears. When the function is working, it only shows the full selection of those recommended titles if it is the first book I have clicked on for info. For all subsequent books, it only shows 3 titles. This is a bummer. I have found that if I close the app entirely, and reopen, I can click a different book and once again, see a full selection of recommendations based on other readers. If I don’t completely close the app out between each book I browse, I am again limited to three suggestions. Mostly, now, I am getting the spinning circle and nothing is loading. Bonus points- when you click to see one of the three kindle chart recommendations at the end of a book’s description, there is now a tab up to that allows the reader to select between top 100, new releases, most wished for, etc. This has broadened the # of selections under a specific topic, which I truly appreciate!
  • I see work is being done on library functionality, but Sep 28, 2021

    By Diamondstud32
    As an avid reader, I’d like to see more improvements for storing, organizing and finding books in my Kindle library in order to make reading Kindle books more enjoyable. 1) There should be a way to bring the categories into the library so I can filter by category and sub-category. For example: category Mystery; subcategory Police Procedural. I can shop for them this way in the Kindle store, I want to be able to view my library the same way. 2). There needs to be a way to quickly see which books have been read, and which have not. 3) There should be a private section in my kindle library that can't be seen by anyone I hand my phone or tablet to. 4) I'd like a way to easily view a series of books in order. It looks like this is being done, but it doesn’t seem to work. Also, I’d like to be able to easily go to the next book in the series. Currently, when I finish a book, a page comes up showing the title and synopsis of the next book in the series. (Thanks for adding that, it has helped a bit to at least see the title of the next book in order). Ideally though, I’d like to be able to select the next book (if in my library) and be able to open it from there. Instead, I have to search my library. Thanks for considering there suggestions.
  • Works well to read but some problems Oct 8, 2021

    By nyc/country
    PROS: I like that I have some choice in the color of the “paper,” print, how brightly (or not—good at night) lit, size of print, etc. I like that if I dk a word, I can simply tap on it for a definition (although I’d like a better, more encompassing dictionary). Overall, I find it easy to read on the app. CONS: My biggest peeve is that is highly unreliable as to whether I’ve read a book or not. It is supposed to but often doesn’t, which I find quite annoying. Of course, major books stay with me, but I read a lot and don’t always remember, say, whether I’ve read a particular mystery. Similarly, it doesn’t always catch that I’ve already purchased a book. It is supposed to and should. I have paid twice for the same book a number of times. Less important but a matter of convenience, it doesn’t remember your last page read. It says it does, but here’s an example of it not working: I’ve just read something that leads me to wonder when the book was published, so I go to look for the copyright page. If I forget to look at my current page number, the app will take me either to the front or back of the book to see the date. Now Kindle sometimes registers that page (the beginning or end of the book) as my furthest page read.

    Although I prefer to hold a book and smell it's paper, there are things In enjoy about having Kindle. I have the app on my phone as well as an older Kindle Fire. I prefer the dark theme across the board on both devices. So naturally, I prefer the black "paper" with white font of the app. I also recently discovered the font with can aid those with dyslexia. Personally I don't experience it, but it has helped my reading absorb into my head.

    By Scott Stilson
    Great platform to read almost any title immediately from my phone. There is enough customization to make reading from a screen more comfortable and enjoyable. My only problem is that sometimes books are unavailable for purchase even though they were previously and I've added it to my list. I will admit that I dont know what goes on behind the scenes to get digital books on apps but it's inconvenient none the less.
  • Could we stop with the ridiculous English with heavy Italian accent? Jan 25, 2022

    By Elena NYC
    This is great book. It documents so well the struggle, rivalry and jealousy among these renaissance greats. I honestly wish I would have read rather than listened to this book. It does a great disservice to the narrative. I don’t fault the narrator at all. Rather, there is this ridiculous American convention, which is frankly rather provincial, that when foreigners speak in movies and now in e-books they somehow have to do it with a ridiculous accent. This is true of Germans, or Polish, or French. If you have access to foreign movies or e-books, NOBODY follows this rather ridiculous and archaic convention! You don’t see American Westerns for example, where cowboys speak terrible French with a heavy American accent. This is a particular American convention designed to underscore the “foreignnesses “ of the speaker. In this time and age it actually comes across not only as xenophobic but as quite provincial. If you think about it for a second, the content is so rich, that the story would have not been minimized one bit, had the narrator been allowed to let Leonardo and Michelangelo speak normally in the language the book was being read. I was continuously distracted and ANNOYED (in case you didn’t pick up on this yet) by the ridiculous accents.

    Great platform! I work landscaping and I like to listen to audiobooks while I work. I wish I could just buy the audio version of books instead of having to buy both a copy and the reading. Would save me a ton of money. Because I go through the books so fast working 10-18 hour days it's hard to justify paying $10+ and pay and extra $10+ for the audio version
  • Was a 5 until yesterday Jan 16, 2022

    By CameraGirl702
    I started using the Kindle App as soon as the pandemic hit, so basically for 2 years. I love how easy it is to use. I got a Kindle Paper last year and syncing it with my IPhone App is easy and convenient. I have read hundreds of books through the Kindle app and haven’t went more than a couple days without using the app. I like that you can create lists for books you want to read. Since you can only have so many books in your library at one time, I utilized the Lists feature often to keep track of books I want to read in the future. Until yesterday, this function worked. I tried to add a book to one of my lists, and when I tried to select one of the lists, it wouldn’t work. I can see books that were added to my lists prior to yesterday, however I cannot add any new books to my Lists. Super frustrating. Cannot find any threads on line that address this issue. I deleted the app and re downloaded it in my phone but it still isn’t working. The Lists feature is a huge part of using the Kindle App so please fix this!!

    I get a lot of use out of the Kindle app. Unfortunately I've had a problem with their feature that purports to track how many consecutive days I've read some Kindle content. It has failed to log a few days, incorrectly breaking the consecutive days string. Nearest I've been able to figure out is that it seems to be defining a day as midnight to midnight California time, regardless of the user's actual time zone. The result is that for me a day in this tracker runs 2am to 2am.

    I have Kindle on my Android and has been great until recently when I go to the button for read for free it takes me to a screen to choose which device but there is no devices to choose from. And it takes me to a Amazon page saying page doesn't exist. I have uninstalled several times and it still keeps doing this. It will let me do samples and purchase.
  • Jan 8, 2022

    By John Rhodes
    Good if you know what you are looking for specifically. I don't find the app has a lot of unique recommendations or depth of recommended titles. For example, I'm fond of dark humor/dark comedy. When I search for that genre, 2 or 3 relevant titles return with a ton of trash romance novels.
  • Needs improvement Jun 19, 2020

    By CXbghn@
    I like reading books on Kindle, but I read A LOT. I mean, A LOT. Over the years I’ve accumulated a ton of books. And even if I’m caught up in a series, if I stumble over a book that I want to read, especially if it’s on sale, I’ll add it to my library. It is hard now to scroll down through the books in my library and find the ones I’ve bought but haven’t read yet. It’d be great if we had the settings option of automatically archiving books once we reach the end. Or at least sort books so the new ones come to the top. I shouldn’t have to suggest this. It seems like common sense. And I even registered a request for it years ago and they still haven’t done it. And also, for some reason my app keeps adding Kindle accounts. I think I’m up to six or so, even though I only use Kindle on two devices. So my iPhone app no longer syncs furthest read with my iPad app. Argh. Why does it do this? I tried emailing for support but they tell me I have to call. Calls for help force me to sit there for ages on hold until someone picks up, and it seems like it takes MUCH longer to get things sorted out than if I could just get some simple written instructions. It’d be great if they valued my time.
  • Easy to read, Difficult to search... Oct 15, 2018

    By iTunesEater
    While the kindle app is awesome for reading and makes it easy to download and view books, searching and having custom categories is much more difficult. As a fan of Paranormal Romance I’d like to be able to slide books into different folders. All vamp books together, zombies, witches and weres in their own spot. Also, for whatever reason, even after I’ve read a book it’ll show them as unread after an update. It is extremely annoying to not actually know which books I’ve read. Also, scrolling and scrolling for AGES just to get to the oldest books I’ve purchased is so archaic. There has to be a better way. Lastly, searching an authors name, to find a title, doesn’t always show the authors books. Sometimes it doesn’t even find that author and suggests different authors all together. But usually search bar will usually show me their other works or samples I can buy. That feels insulting when I just want to read the book I’ve already paid for. Please do better kindle.

    This review is strickly for vella. I like it & i like the stories but its just not cost affective. Buying the lowest option should give you almost 8 chapters...i got 5 & that was with having 35coins after my intial free ones. So my money was only good for 4 chapters & thats half of what i should have gotten. I am not happy with the amount of chapters i was able to unlock for the price i paid. I will stick with my unlimited sub.
  • eReader developers Jul 25, 2020

    By Don2
    As time passes, there will be increasing demand from users for the full implementation of HTML5, CSS3, and ePub3 in reflowable-text eReaders. The features that users could be experiencing as they read include video, audio, JavaScript, background images, embedded fonts, and much more. The current requirement that eBooks with embedded media use the fixed-layout format is inappropriate when text-based eBooks have media designed to flow along with the text. That requirement can result in many consecutive pages of fixed-layout text that can’t be resized. Fixed-layout is for magazine-type eBooks. The current implementation of reflowable text is for text-only eBooks, like traditional novels. There should be a third option available that utilizes all the features of ePub3. Currently, the display of media in reflowable-text eReaders is very haphazard, with images or videos halfway off the page or not displayed at all. Scripts in JavaScript are ignored or appear as text in the body text. If a user pays extra for a multimedia eBook, they would like to experience the media they paid for. Please provide users and designers a third option, multimedia-text, in addition to reflowable-text and fixed-layout. Thinking that reflowable-text eBooks don’t need video or audio is like Norma Desmond saying she’d had the eyes of the world but they wanted their ears too. Was she right? Movies don’t need soundtracks? Please allow eReaders to continue evolving.

    Not versatile or flexible enough. I'm using this app on a Chromebook Flex and I need this app to work both in tablet mode and laptop mode. I wish there were a way I could anchor it or resize the window without the menus being completely useless, and I wish it also had stylus capabilities so that I can add highlights without going into some secret menu. I'm glad I can use it for school, but it is a headache to navigate.
  • hate the new home page Jan 22, 2020

    By McDonna
    Before the latest update I would have given the app a 4-star rating as it mostly works pretty well. But now when I open the app, instead of showing me my books it puts me on their new Home screen. It is nothing more than a way to try to sell me more books, which is annoying because I choose books from my browser and I am opening the app so that I can READ them. Ironically they don’t even let you buy books from the app even if I were in a shopping mood, and as usual they have no idea what I might be looking to buy so it is nothing but a waste of time. I have spent many hundreds of dollars on their books and this greedy ploy just makes me want to find a different app that will allow to read them without encountering ads every bloody time I open the app. This is the price we pay for supporting a monopoly—they control the books and prices and now can’t even provide a clean and efficient way to read them. I know this seems like an overreaction but I read whenever I have a few minutes waiting in line or wherever, and I keep opening it to this ad page and thinking “huh?” and then remembering oh yeah I need to find and click the Library button so I’ve just lost a precious bit of my reading time.
  • Add this feature Jan 11, 2021

    By ElliottReveiws
    I am a little late into the kindle craze, but after buying a new iPad for school I decided to buy all my books digitally. It was such a pleasure to only carry my iPad and have all my books for class with me. Until the dreaded kindle feature I soon discovered... there are no page numbers on some books, my professor sends out an email “read page 145 to 158 of your required textbook” sounds like a simple task. Unfortunately on kindle all books are not required to put real page numbers so I am at lost. I emailed my professor, but she is not going out of her way to send me screen shots on where to start and end in the textbook I purchased. So, can the developers at kindle require real numbered pages to all books. I want to see at the bottom of the page “page. X from physical book” or just print it in the actual text where a real page from the book ends. Basically digital kindle books are like buying a book with the page numbers cut off. I purchased 7 books for classes and only 1 has real page numbers.

    OK reading app but horrible for searching or organizing your library. And now you only get 6 books from your library in search results and the rest are from the Kindle store encouraging you to buy more books. I just want to find that one book I read 5 years ago and want to read again. I'd rather read in Google books, Libby, or overdrive!

    This app is absolutely garbage. I downloaded the PC version and any highlights or notes you make you can't see. Apparently this is a common problem and you have to download an older version through third parties which I don't want to do. It wasn't so bad until all the highlights and notes I made that I could not see on the PC I could not see on any other device either. In other words it quit syncing and nobody knows why. I have two tickets right now with tech support concerning this program.

    Every single time there is an update it takes over two hours to open the app. I wish I could get a refund of the hundreds of dollars I've wasted on kindle. I'll stick with my nook. Updated 2 days ago 3-30-2020 and it erased all my books, continously freezes up when I try to download books from my library. Very unsatisfied. Kobo or nook is where I'm going. Wasted a lot of money with kindle. Wish I could give 0 stars. 1-11-2022 and this app is still garbage

    It’s annoying. I spend $80 on a textbook that’s great! But then I download it onto my kindle on my brand new IPad Pro and the app barely has 10 features. I usually keep the iPad sideways. The thing is 13” wide with awesome 4K+ display, and here i am staring at 2/3s of a page in what would be size 30 font. It’s like this app is made for mobile! Not a large tablet. Totally different. In fact, etexts were part of the reason I bought an iPad to begin with. I wish i could zoom out on the page to the desired distance (can easily fit a whole page while sideways, this display is incredible) but it just snaps back to full page view with only 2/3s of the page on screen. In fact what i want most is to fit TWO-WHOLE pages on a sideways screen, in columns format like a regular old book. Hope they innovate! Bc fancy tech is great and all but can you PLEASE build out the platforms to be consistent with the incredible capabilities of devices these days? It’s really basic stuff, just making a decent platform for customers spending $$$ on kindle books is the least they could do. Thanks.
