Upgrade and uniformity needed I've had two titles so far, advertised to have page flip and enhanced type setting that did not, on Kindle for Android. Time for auto-night view, more lay-out options, and, vertical continuous scrolling. "Enhanced" type-setting and page-flip not always present, great when they are. Attractive audio-companions, but some do not work immersive as advertised. Amazon ebook prices can be among the highest, but still peerless shopping environment. Non-companion purchased audio titles invisible in app.
Pretty good reading app I like the fact that I don't have to have an actual Kindle device to read e-books. I do have one problem. I purchased the books, so I own them, it seems like I should be able to save them to PDF, Word, or other portable document to read on other devices that don't have Kindle. If and when this becomes an option I will give 5 stars. I have no idea why they put "older version" it updates all the time.
Constantly getting error messages that the app crashed and I'm not even using it! Why is there even a background process going? This is a battery drain and most likely affecting the performance of my device and other apps. Seriously considering just uninstalling if it's doing this
Dictionary search does not work anymore I used to be able to look up words in Harper Collins Spanish-English Dictionary. Now it searches the whole book and I have to browse through pages of entries to find the definition. Search still works on actual Kindle so this seems to be a new "feature" of Android Kindle app. Useless.
Bad update I've had to reinstall multiple times recently. Before that it was perfect. Update 1/11/17.....it has become ridiculous. I now have to delete and reinstall the app anytime I shut my phone off and at other random times when I am in the middle of reading a book. "Invalid item" shows up. This is annoying when I am in an area without service. As an Amazon and Kindle loyalist I am extremely disappointed!
Always on displays ads You just wanted to read the books you paid for but now you've download an advertising service from Amazon. This always on service will crash and then just restart in the background and crash again and again. I downloaded the app to read my book when I'm not reading it SHOULD be off not serving ads and sending telemetry. And why do they do it....because seriously who else are you going to buy from.
7.7: In-book search improvements, including the ability to search for X-Ray terms in thousands of eligible textbooks directly from the search window.
Tip: If you happen to encounter a blank screen during login or while loading the Kindle Store, please be sure to update the 'Android System WebView' app from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.webview . Alternatively, search for “Android System WebView” on the Google Play App Store and update that app
