This app is awesome. I liked it a lot but a major feature I would like to suggest which need to be added in the . While reading the book we can decrease the phone or tablet brightness but there is no feature to decrees kindle book night. It is difficult to read the book at night. If possible try to add a feature to set brightness or provide nightmode feature in the new update. once again thank you Amazon and Google foe this wonderful app.
Welcome to Amazon Kindle here is a free $5 credit for you towards the purchase of your next book. I didn't even ask for this. What they don't tell you is that every time you try to buy a book that is less than $5 you cannot complete your purchase or buy any books that you want. Error messages pop up every single time and I can't spend money. You blew it Amazon... Lost a cu$tomer for Kindle here. There should be an option to purchase a book without having to use a credit.
Update still only addressed a small portion of complaints. Homepage is still filled with ads, aka recommendations/suggestions. If I wanted to see those, I would have gone to the Store. Additionally scrolling in Store is still screwed up since 2-3 updates ago. I am not able to scroll or it is laggy when scrolling. I have to wait 10-15 seconds longer than before for a Store page to load before I can start scrolling. Rather than bringing the Kindle Store to the rest of the app, why don't you focus on fixing the Store first.
What a mess. Since the latest Android update to my Samsung Galaxy, my Kindle for Samsung refuses to work, so I have been forced to install this new version and I don't like it at all. The carousel is much smaller and half the homepage is offering me books which Amazon thinks I might like. A perfect demonstration of the old adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
I would rate this higher, but there doesn't seem to be a way to turn off one click purchases when this app is connected to your Amazon account. It would be nice if I could make sure my child doesn't end up buying a book every time he sees a cover he likes.
Wow, this new update is concerning. After reading a plethora of reviews regarding the latest update (10/12/17), I agree with them and am SO very glad I read them b4 updating. Losing the original functioning of the app means I won't update it, so I'm really hoping Amazon corrects this unwelcome change.
