It's not like a perfect app but... It's OK...In my opinion. It's a good book app but...Not so well about ALERTS LOL my opinion is that the app should have better UPDATES when it gets updated...My opinion is pretty much the app is GOOD ok good! Hope it's ok with you with me saying that...Ok don't report me for what I said but hope you don't anyways hopefully you like it.
The latest update made the word lookup very annoying as it automatically does wikipedia and bing translation lookups. I don't want them as I just want to use the local dictionary. This feature is unnecessary making a network traffic and has negative impact on the battery life. At least make this configurable so it can be turned off. EDIT: Few updates later nothing changed. These so called "smart cards" are very annoying and it is not possible to turn them off in the configuration settings. EDIT2: Even worse, the dictionary lookup is broken now. Unbelievable.
Total rubbish, doesn't accept password, I keep changing it all the time, it never happens on Amazon, a password that works on A is constantly rejected by this application leading to dozens of bloody captcha tests. I have 3 kindle tablets for my family and only the phone version fails. It as well loses books. I have close to 500 reference books and I need them offline from time to time. Of course then all books are gone. Kobi e book reader is far better
With the latest updates installed I was unable to change the background color, which is a feature that I use often, as the white screen is so bright at night it bothers my wife when I read in bed. I had to disable the Android reader & re-install. Now I can change the background color, but I've lost some of the cute features like the page flip animation. That's OK though, as the reader now works.
Please find a fix the dictionary. It use to work great but a couple of updates ago it stopped working properly. I was hoping that the next update would fix it, but that was today and obviously it didn't fix the problem. Thanks and no matter what I'll still keep using this app because I absolutely love it.
Heap of c**p! When it opens, it's then not working! So they take your money then give you a pile of sh1t to use to read the books? Come on Amazon, at least try give a half way decent app!
7.10: Faster highlighting - press, hold, and drag your finger over words in your book to automatically highlight them, then use the updated menu to take a note, share a quote, and more.
