Doesn't work The cover rarely appears and when you click on it you don't get taken to the book but just through to kindle, the kindle app does that. Uninstalling
Worked well, but broke with Kit Kat Love this widget, but after upgrading to Kit Kat, the cover widgets are invisible with just the label. The widgets that just show a colorful plane book are still pretty neat, though.
Loved this widget when it worked. Recently upgraded from a Note 2 to a Note 4. The widget worked perfectly on my old phone, but won't recognize any of the books in my library on the new phone. Reading the other reviews, it looks like I'm not the only one. Fix it and it's a five star app for sure.
Almost Not all the kindle books I have downloaded are listed in the book selection dialogue, including the book I actually wanted to link to. The shortcut when it was created looked good and worked ok, a little slow to open, but fair enough probably Kindles fault. You can not organise the shortcut in a folder on your desktop (as it is a widget not really a shortcut I suppose). I accept this may not be technically posible for the dev, but it does limit usefulness.
Great idea, small issue Great and aesthetic way to access books directly from the home screen. Only have one issue with kindle not appearing in multitasking and crashing when trying to go back to the app.
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
