I've used half a dozen e-reading apps and if it wasn't for the prime integration I'd never use this app again. It constantly crashes in the middle of a page or drops back to the library. I've actually paid full price for e-books from other sources that are free with prime just to be able to actually read without the inconvenience. Amazon basically pioneered the e-reader, and this is the best you've got this far into the game? C'mon Amazon get it together.
Bumped this up to five stars because they gave back the option to turn off popular highlights. I love it when devs are responsive and when they let the features fade into the background so they don't interrupt the experience of the book. Features like press-and-hold dictionary definitions are an excellent example—there when they can add to the experience, not competing with the book for your attention. Well done.
I always liked this app, but I've recently moved to an entry-level device (Huawei Y3 II) which won't let me run it. Or perhaps it is just the app itself containing incompatibilities, since it appears to be the only instance where I'm encountering problems.
Worked fine until yesterday, but now when I open the app it freezes within a few seconds and then crashes. Send to be some kind of sync issue, but I have no other network issues with my device. My entire Kindle library is now rendered useless and unreadable.
I think there was a recent update problem. Can't adjust font, color or anything! Can't return to library from a book once it is open! Amazon needs to stop it with all the bells and whistles! We bibliophiles just want to read!
Your last update at beginning of January changed a 4 to 5 star app into junk. I can't even access my books on phone unless i use kindle cloud reader through my phone Chrome app. By the way, I use my phone Kindle app more than my Kindle Paperwhite device. Fix the phone app, Amazon... I will change my review back to 4 or 5 star when you fix the phone Kindle app.
Several experience improvements and bug fixes.
