Kindle paperwhite is amazing. I love reading books on my kindle but this app for Android is taking much needed space on my phone. Also it takes a lot of time to open and it consumes a lot of RAM making multitasking difficult. I hope amazon will launch a lighter version. 5 star for kindle. Bring a lighter version of app so that I can rate it 5 star. Guys can you give an option to change the background to some other color or shade other than green, sepia and black . It will be more helpful and it will also reduce the strain on our eyes
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.
I hate the new update. The home page is awful. Kindle unlimited is poorly integrated, why can I not sort to see which items I still have checked out. I am most frustrated by the fact I can not use a password or PIN to stop my kids from making accidental or unauthorized purchases, the Amazon app store has this feature. Or make a kids Kindle app separate from the free time app. Our family may have to consider switching platforms.
This was a great app until the last few updates ... In addition to what others have said about the new format, I would like to point out that there is no longer an option to uncheck a customer review rating. I have rated numerous book reviews as "unhelpful" by mistake, when I intended to hit the button for next review. Unfortunately I do not have the option to correct this.
Store is messed up. I read reviews in store and click my phone back button and it takes me out of the app completely or back to the front Kindle page... Haven't found the app back button to go back to list of books.... So I have to type in search each time??? Ridiculous...
Terrible update. To much advertising. (recommended, more like "book name") Scrolling is sporadic. Scrolling up goes up then down and vice versa. I've spent hundreds of dollars on dozens of books only to have a terrible new user interface. Amazon currently one of the highest grossing business in the world, please take addressing this issue into consideration.
