I think a Kindle Update broke this not KitKat I loved this widget until it broke. Everyone seemed to blame KitKat but I just downgraded back to Jellybean and it is broken in the same way'. I am guessing something in the last update to the Kindle Reader for Android. I just wish someone would fix it... If it worked like it used to I would give it 5 stars
Decent, but lacks a few things It's good for direct links, as it should be, but it has a few issues: it doesn't grab the artwork from the book itself, so if its a custom book you get a bland icon. If you check for it to use the actual cover and it cannot retrieve it, the widget is transparent, making it impossible to see if you turned off the title. Once you load a book through it, you have to go back twice to get the the kindle home- the first time simply brings you to the book again. It just has a bunch of those little annoyances
Doesn't work Widget doesn't work cuz when I try to install a widget, when you click BOOK SHORTCUT a box comes up that says LIST OF BOOKS but you can't click on it or anything. Uninstalling....Please fix, about a year ago I had this & I LOVED it.
Doesn't work I loved it. ..when it worked. I had to get a replacement phone bc my old one broke. I'm trying to make it exactly the same, but now this won't work. Both are note 3s. What's the deal? ? It won't show any of my books in the book shortcut list, and I have Uninstaller and installed both this and the amazon kindle app at least 3 times in different order
Limited. Needs further development Only has two books from my collection available for selection. Luckily one of them is the book I'm reading now. The cover art worked however, I'd like to remove the text title from the smaller icon with artwork. Otherwise, exactly what I was looking for. Need my whole library to show up in widget for selection though!
Was good I had a Kindle widget that was really cool, a flipboard carousel, sizable , showed the book I was on and a few more behind it. I really liked it but it quit working. So I thought I'd do an un-re-install. Only it's not in the widgets in playstor any more. Now I'm stuck with a crappy little 1× all I can do with is put 1 cover art on. Where'd that nice pretty flip board go???? Cause this one sux. :(
