Instead of pratting about with the visuals, why not do something useful, like giving more control over where content is stored? I should be able to put EVERYTHING on SD card. That would actual be useful. Hate the change to the opening screen. Too. Much. Useless. Advertising. HATE, HATE, HATE the new icon. Unnecessary cobblers. Does anyone at Ama-con notice or care how many one- and two-star reviews there are now. Use another reader app instead.
This app used to work perfectly fine on my phone but all of a sudden it won't work. Once when I closed the app it logged me out which I thought was weird as it doesn't usually do that, but whatever. However, ever since then when I log in I can't download or read any of my books and it will always log me out, so the app is currently useless.
Bottom line, no Latin reference materials. Seems like a basic no-brainier. Bing translate is a really weak link here. Wiki is an awesome feature, but it's got it's limitations. Give us a Latin dictionary, or use Google translate instead. It does so much better anyway. I find myself having to Google search all the time, which defeats the point of in app reference tools.
I love this app but am still trying to get an icon for it permanently on my tablet. Am sure it's there and it's just me but l'm not very tech savvy. Lol But we'll get there. Lol
126.96.36.199 update: Apparently, the people who create the so-called "experience improvements" must never actually use the Kindle app. It gets progressively slower each update. And this newest? The worst yet. Carousels all over the place... Except... Where is the main one? Hmm. Just gone. No way to actually choose what to put there anymore. No way to remove items from carousels. WORST. UPDATE. EVER. Filled with useless recommendation carousels. If I want to see recommendations, I know where your online store is. You don't have to shove it in my face. Removed the update and installed a previous version. Then turned off auto update. Edit 10/19: Kind of funny that the one star reviews all have decent sized comments and all the 5 star reviews are lacking feedback. Looks like someone's trying to pad the reviews to me. Edit 10/29: 188.8.131.52 update: 2 weeks of extremely vocal complaints and all you do is toss out another completely useless update. Color scheme. Really, Amazon? WHERE IS MY CAROUSEL
Took me forever to bypass the prime screen. I have a ton of books downloaded already. When I signed into the app it will not let me load any of my books. Not one.
