Keep getting Stop Messages For the last few day I keep getting kindle has unfortunately stopped working messages. Which stops my phone from working. I unistalled it and restalled it and it still is doing it. If I didn't user this app daily I would have removed it by now

Kevin Jacobson

Infinite notifications App takes over screen brightness. App is not usable outside anymore as it goes to darkest automatically. Haven't found an override. Even Nook has a manual update claims it fixed some of these problems but it doesnt. It does crash more often.

T Lowe

No text to speech capability I wasted money purchasing a textbook from Amazon. I will never spend money with Amazon again due to the lack of text to speech capabilities, an issue that other companies do not seem to have a problem with. I would happily pay extra to be able to listen to my textbooks while doing other things. Their business model of refusing to listen to customers on this matter pushes me to give my money to other vendors.

Bliss Sutton

Would have given 5 star if It would work right. Always stops or will just not load at all.

Gabe Fisher

This review is for Chris McKenzie. How is this Amazons fault you bought a phone from a cell phone network that has bloatware? You know why the cell phones are cheap? Because they get paid by companies to put apps on it plus they lock you in a contract.

Bihanga Som

The app is good but I liked the app and would give 5 stars. But few years back I bought a kindle paper white. It is not working anymore. Bad customer service.

Brian Hochhalter

The one and only There is no better reader available. It makes electronic reading an effortless and truly enjoyable experience. Each update brings useful, clever changes.

Dustin Watkins

Wi-Fi required to download? Purchase a book and the file size is so big, wifi is required to download it. I have 4G and UNLIMITED data through an old plan. Really? Why are you limiting my download?

Darlene Harbick

One pro: Best pdf reader I've found for my tablet. Main cons: Needs widget so I can open directly to my current book and page. Can't really organize my library. No way to hide books already read.

Benjamin Lawrence

Massive downloads, error spam Was looking forward to reading my collection. Unfortunately it either a) downloads the same books over and over in a high-speed loop, or b) creates a popup error for every book it cannot redownload, leading to phone freeze & crash. Looking for a reader which can handle the kindle proprietary books that I've bought.

Sidney Gail

Update sucks Everytime i tey to go and my a book from the app it only leta me see recommended ones. I cant search for an author oe book. Please fix.

John Waterous

Kindle app Great Amazon proprietary tool for mobile book consumption; plus free dictionary in reading pages.

Alexis Lewis

Great...Until App was perfect until this update. When I try to open a book it gives me a download error and eventually crashes. Please Fix.

Edward Graham

Love it I have absolutely no problems with this app. It's really easy to use plus I can add my own books which is just awesome. I can convert my epubs to mobi and send to my amazon account and this app picks them up. I can read them from here without any fuss. This is a great app and I highly recommend this to everyone.

Dorothy Nicholas

Unreadable The last two upgrades just set Kindle at the darkest setting without being able to change it. Hard to read indoors, absolutely impossible outside.

Fred Mindach II

For a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 I really like this app. I can read at home, on the go or whenever I have time.

Gene McCabe

Works good, lasts a long time I've been running this app on a Galaxy S4 and S5 for 3 years without a problem. It does a great job keeping track of where I an in a book across my devices too. I joined Kindle Unlimited and that is great too. No performance problems at all.

Mary Crovv

Excellent! A must have for readers. Take books anywhere, in your pocket! Get free books! Not even close to paper, but definitely worth the drive space.

Citlalli Hernandez

It can be 5 stars but... I'm glad it worked on my device because while this was downloading I was looking at the comments. Not doing good there are you? Anyways. You guy said FREE books. Yet the books I wanted to read cost money. A lot. Honestly you guys are selling a book (ONE BOOK) for 15$. What the heck. Make your books free ans I will give 5 stars

Tara Oneill

Not working right The latest update totally ruined this app for me. I cant open my book im currently reading and I was at an important part in the book. Its killing me. It says it can not download. Please fix this. I feel like every other upgrade does this or something simular. (I can read for hours. And when I finish one book I can just order the next one right away.)

Adrian Smith

Auto-sync! Auto-sync'ing pages between Android app and Kindle is teh awesome! All the other bells and whistles are appreciated, but they play second-fiddle to the seamless reading experience.

Judy Jetson

Buggy On Note 4 w/ latest lollipop update. I can't open any books. New books won't DL. App hangs when I attempt opening my collections. This is ridiculous. I know Amazon will fix the bugs but this frustrated reader is out of luck until they do.

Davina Mann

Non stop use I have 2 phones as well as a kindle. Since the introduction of this app i have not bothered with my kindle, one of my phones is called 'my book' it goes everywhere with me (does not have a sim card), but if i should forget it i also have the app on my regular phone. I love that it syncs across all my devices.

Grace Danback

Thank you! Originally this app would not work but after the new update everything is running smoothly.

Jessica White

Kindle won't work Please fix the most recent update. The book that I was in the middle of reading is now not showing up on my kindle. I emailed customer service and have not heard back. This is very frustrating! 5/14/15

Kayla Ruthenberg

I love this app. I updated it and now it's making me redownload the book I was reading. This wouldn't be a problem if it downloaded again. Please fix ASAP, I was getting into the books I was reading

Jenn Harvey

Best reading app I've tried Best reading app I have. Everything is exactly how I like it. Thanks for changing the in-app purchases, I hated the forced browser use. Love it!

Laura Bridgman

Cancelling does nothing Pressing cancel sometimes doesn't even work and when it does it lasts for maybe half an hour. I don't want EVERY book I download on my phone and I can't take up data downloading them. Fix this please!

Michy Bu

Good App but I'm stilllll disappointed! I sent few emails in 2 yrs row to make request for adding one of features - kindle ebook widget. Amazon never tell me why can't they add it? I want it on my phone or tablet so I can click it and then read quickly. E-books inside kindle app are so confusing me and not know which to read. Widget makes much easier for me bec I can tell which one I have began to read while other ones I'm holding to next reading. Other ebook apps already have that. Everyone who want that too please email Amazon to add it!!

Jason Knight

Problem fixed Back up to five star as search problems are addressed.

Elizabeth Morton

Love Amazon Love Kindle I use Amazon Prime and pay a little extra to get books for 'free' or a few bucks a month with Kindle Unlimited. I love this option. You can have up to ten books at a time (I think). AWESOME. :-)

Jovanny A Rodriguez

App to the SDcard... Please add the ability to be able to move the App to the SDcard. Thank you...

A Google User

Very convenient So much better than I had expected! With a larger mobile phone in the HTC M8, it is excellent. Even better on my Samsung Tab S, which now replaces my dead Kindle.

Benjamin Duncan

Still no text to speech! I have switched to Google Play Books. No text to speech is unacceptable.

Betty Sakuma

Great app I just love Kindle and this app just gets better and better. You go Amazon!

qazi faisal

The new update did nothing New update did not fix anything at all took off 2 more stars

N Phillips

I love being able to read my books everywhere!

Demetry Gutierrez

Doesn't allow for emailing or viewing of epub What a waste of 15min to get this app going. Plus no local file viewing... I don't want to send you all my books so you can advertise what I like to me

Karen Salvatore

I love this app, I am now never without a book to read. I always have my phone with me so I can just take off from where I stopped reading on my Kindle when I'm away from my home.

Constantine Noname

Great! Works with Firefox add-on Send to Kindle.

Михаил Доронин

I don't like the design, fonts. Margins are too big for me. Doesn't give you reading stats or any 'smart' functions. Haven't been updated to material design.

Oleg Romanenko

The page isn't centered. The margins on the left are smaller, than on the right. Please add a feature to export my notes and bookmarks! Also, it is easier to work with my book notes, as I have all my notes shown full, not trancated.

A Google User

I've been a staunch Kindle use/reader since 2010 but now I will have to remove it from my phone as it is eating battery. Seriously it is suddenly the #1 battery user on my phone even beating out Google services! Changing my resting from 5 to 1.

Wayne Welsh

Syncing is not great between K Paperwhite and Samsung Note 4 with lollipop AND now every time I open the kindle app on my Note 4 I have to choose the book I'm reading again! It does seem to remember my place most of the time but sometimes it takes me backwards!!

Keith Major

New Update Getting error message cannot download book right now. When that is fixed it will be back to 5 stars but now, I can't read anything so the app doesn't have a purpose.

tricia priest

New update Your new update has made it to where I cannot read my books. I am getting an error message that my book cannot download right now try again...... have tried again and again. Fix now please! I would like to finish the last few chapters in the book I was reading.

A Google User

Where is scrolling? This app is a far less satisfying way to read written content than a simple web page, blog, or even a PDF file. There is STILL no option to scroll content. The singular devotion to the "turn the page like it's paper" model is inexplicable. Ever since the advent of variable fonts, spacings, and device screen sizes, the idea of a fixed page is all but gone. Yes, there are people who remain devoted to the page as a way to experience a book, but enable optional scrolling for the rest of us!

A Google User

Add notification despite notification settings Do not advertise to me this way I find it invasive and unacceptable!

Robert Haltom

No TTS support. I purchased some pricy voices for my phone, but can't even use them with this junk app.

Wesley Tee

Great app Everything is good. Start up time can be faster, and still waiting for the new font bookerly to hit android!! Taking too long.

Mark Mostow

Works well. Thanks for choice of dictionary. The latest versions for Android work very well. Thanks for finally allowing users to choose a dictionary. It was a pain to learn German using the default German dictionary with definitions in German! I like the option to read about the book from the book itself. Reading on the Kindle or Kindle app is so enjoyable that I no longer like to read print books. My five year old grandson enjoys the Kindle app, too. I'm using it to teach him to read books for beginning readers.

carol adams

Quit running PLEASE Why does this app have to constantly run in my background causing my battery to heat, my "wanted" apps to run slower and take up TONS of memory? Quit spying on me and please go back to the versions that didn't act unless I clicked on it! U have graduated to my suck list.

Chase Blackwood

Crashes I've had too many issues. I want to read my kindle books, but when the app crashes immediately after opening, three or more times in a row, it makes me wonder if they even tested it before pushing the update.

Traci Cappiello

Too buggy. Have to load the app at least twice before it will open properly. Doesn't fully downloaded all books, sometimes it removes books from my devices.

Eric Hysler

Android App is awful I have had a Kindle for several years now and purchased many books to read on it. For some reason though, the app for a Droid devices will not deliver purchased material. 4 times now I have had this issue. And all 4 times I have spent more than a hour on the phone with customer service just to be able to read the purchased material. No apologies. This Is ridiculous. Clearly the dollar means more to Amazon than the consumer.

Ruth Sledge

New and previous updates This used to be my favorite app because I could start a book on one device (Kindle Fire or my android phone) and read it on the other. However for quite a while now a lot of books I download to my Kindle Fire from Amazon will not open on this app. I get an error message saying Invalid Item.

Cherry Blackmore

I'm a great fan of Amazon, but... I fail to understand why these apps make nuisances of themselves by running constantly on my phone and gobbling a huge chunk of its memory when I haven't run them in days, sometimes weeks! The main buying app is no different, and I've been forced to erase Amazon Music from my phone altogether. PLEASE, developers, address this problem! The app should be, and REMAIN, inactive unless called for, and deactivate when finished with! EDIT: Uninstalled as I'm *sick* of force stopping it to get the memory back.

Michelle Carlson

Samsung Note 3 with Android lollipop (UPDATE: It would be nice to be able to "borrow" books from the app like you can from the site) There are like 4 books that I purchased over the course of a month that are still not downloaded. C'mon Kindle, get it together.

Charles Rogers

Stupid app Stupid app that wastes not only MY space on MY phone, I not only can't delete this crap I am forced to update it. Junk, if I wanted something like this it wouldn't be on a 4"+ screen!

A Google User

Works great for me... I don't get why others are having so many problems with the app. It works flawlessly on my phone and only takes a couple of secs to open. Maybe the problem is with the phone or the users and not the app.

Cassandra Frantz

Use to be perfect I'm not a hard person to please. Allow me to download books I can take anywhere and I'm happy. Unfortunately the newest update made navigating the store ridiculous... I don't care what you recommend for me.. Generally if I'm going to buy a pricier book it's one I know about through friends. I don't like recommendations interfering with what I'm looking for considering recommendations are already on the home page of app and at the end of every book.

Jessica D

Won't open Everytime I hit the short cut on the homepage it tries to open and then immediately closes. It won't bring up my book until about the 6th or so time of me hitting the widget. I love amazon. I love the kindle and the kindle app. I love that I can take my books anywhere on my phone. But I hate how hard it is just to get into the app just to read the books I purchased. I read to relax and that issue just frustrates me. Please fix!!!

Betty Anne Shores

Great app in general I saw some complaints about brightness. They clearly don't know this is adjustable. I use the sepia setting and system brightness and it's perfect. Last three versions do not retain fonts on the book series I am reading, it keeps defaulting to the publisher font. You have to keep resetting them. Also, make a list of the books you have on the device before you install this version as, like many others, two of my books were missing after the install, including the one I was reading.

Ristomatti Airo

Best book reading app with still room for improvement I have started reading more books after buying my tablet and finding Kindle. The app is really intuitive and reading and finding new books is easy. One thing I don't quite understand though is the lack of option to change the font. Is it left out on purpose as you can change font in Kindle devices? Surely it would not be too difficult to implement as pretty much all the other readers I have tried have it. They just lack the Kindle store and/or are otherwise lacking in functionality.

Todd Shurtleff

Fix it Latest update made it so I can't read my books. I was halfway through one already downloaded and it's saying it's having trouble downloading and won't open or re download

David Friederick

Smaller Screen is a Bit Cumbersome but... I've always found reading on my phone's screen to be a little cumbersome, but it's not the app's fault. I like this app because it helps me keep track of and maintain my Kindle books.

Latifah Franklin

Used to be great... Its been giving me problems for months! It freezes every time I open it and I have to reopen it several times before it actually works. Now it won't let me get pass a certain page without shutting down

Jonathan Evans

When it works, it's great. When it doesn't, it hangs for minutes at a time. The Kindle Android app is serviceable most of the time (heavy user since 5/2013). However, every update makes it terrible for a week, which is both frustrating and unprofessional because it is so consistent and predictable in its disruptions. I'm also interested in seeing a way to handle recommendations and ebook wishlists within the app, and a better search function for the store. Right now, even very slight typos return no results. UPDATE: 4.13 scrambled my collections. Wtf.

Ric Buenaventura

Very nice app held back by slow loading time With its extensive collection of eBooks on affordable prices to go with the Kindle Unlimited plan, it would be very easy to give this a 5-star reading. My only gripe, and it's major one, is how long it takes to load the app and display your library. It also often gets stuck on a page that only turning off and on the table the only way to get past it. Maybe Amazon did it better on their Kindle devices in which case they should get a 1-star rating for this app for intentionally making a bad app for non-Kindle devices.

Steven Crosby

Small question... Why does the brightness change when you do something sometimes, randomly, system managed brightness changes to really bright stupid brightness when you are tired and clumsy? Seems stupid, are you stupid? Seems like a provocative question to ask but you don't know how many of my reading nights this has spoilt. Like full beam headlights suddenly shone in your eyes as you're about to nod off. Yes the kindle is good, but why does it continue to do this after all this time. Or is it intentional?

Nick Scavone

Upgrade ruined this app Worked fine until last upgrade today, now it takes long to open, lost track of books in my list and read and cant open book Im reading! SUCKS

Petre Todorov

Bad update 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.

Jennifer Pierce

Highlighting is more tedious I love the feature that allows me to view my highlighted notes at once on one page. I am excited to read that I will be able to print out flashcards but have not tried this yet.this is smart for Amazon to do because it allows for reviewers of books to easily summarize contents or mention good takeaways when linking the books in their Blogs to sell however I do not like how tedious it is to highlight sentences now you have to pull down a drop-down menu to select the color and do not like the Wikipedia box

Scott Maillet

Great app I've been using this app for years with no problems until recently after the update. After much frustration I came here and posted a bad review. I never thought to uninstall and reinstall the app and it fixed my problem. I felt silly for not trying that and thought I would amend my review.

Danny Sieg

Amazon Kindle update Great asset for a weight and health conscious diabetic without an educated knowledge of nutrition. A more sophisticated means for enjoying a bestseller, fiction or nonfiction. The lazy days of summer are upon us, thank goodness for a pleasurable book to relax with in colonial New England! It's rewarding to enjoy the advantages of being an Amazon Prime member. Amazon does do business the "Old Fashioned Way" treating customers with respect, good values and dependability!

Daniela Thelen

Good until last (or so) update Audio upgrade site seems to be broken, no list in app anymore. Jumps to amazon homepage, loads for a very long time and then displays default website homepage view. Apart from that, the rest works as I expect it to. Will adjust stars once the audio upgrades site works again.

Harry Knight

Can't sort search Every time I try to sort books by price it keeps going to new and popular. Won't refresh when i change it.

S Hieber

Archaic navigation. Going to and from footnotes is cumbersome. Bookmarks have unecessarily many steps to delete, add or goto. The newer versions of kindle on amazon kindle devices is much better but they keep the slightly brain dead versions for other makers' devices.

Yoga Sidharta

Many issue fixed Missing remaining time fixed! Missing dictionary fixed! Only power draining needed to be fixed


Continuous crashing Motorola droid razor hd. This app crashes constantly and even freezes my phone to the extent I need to restart it. When not crashing, it works well and the synch function with my kindle fire hd seems to be flawless.

Kelly Lantz

Latest update Updated the app, now I can't read my books. Keep receiving error that says "unable to download". Please fix!

Andy Tong

Bullying People always comment vulgarities and nasty things like why your story so less words about the person who wrote the story in the comment box if the person who wrote the story saw it they felt sad but if there is no such things happen i will give five star

Matthew Trent

"Zero margins" option, please! When I'm reading on my phone I don't want to waste any screen real estate on margins. It already has a physical bezel. Why margins? Also, the kindle store looks like it's straight out of the 1990s and has no wish list functionality.

Robert Dewille

I like the app, but they need to put a forward and back button on it. When you are searching through the bible, it is hard as hell to get back to the location where you first started. Thank God they still have the forward and back buttons on my kindle paperwhite.

Kamilah Whipple

I used to enjoy this app very much but lately not so much. The last two times(on separate occasions) I tried to open up and read a sample I downloaded, it somehow downloaded and charged me the full price! I was able to receive a refund a few days later but the fact that I was charged initially(even with one click settings supposedly turned off) makes me not trust using amazon kindle anymore.

Arcady Royzen

Still waiting... For a very simple functionality of turning pages instead of swiping left and right... Is it too much too ask for??? Why is it taking so long for development team to implement?

Jean Lansford

Can't turn off notifications App keeps pushing notifications advertising crap even though I have notifications turned off in the app settings. Have to disable them at the system level. Also, no way to disable in-book popups like the dictionary lookups. Makes for a terrible reading experience.

Andy M

Conflicted with Amazon appstore version Update: 4.20 crash upon launch. 4.21 fixed ? Older: When you installed this Google play version, the Amazon appstore said "not installed by the appstore" probably because it lacked the Amazon Kiwi signature. Okay now, which version should we use, Amazon? Mine was OEM pre-installed, then appstore updated ok several times, then playstore updated it, suddenly I got the appstore complain. What to do now? Would I lose my books and/or progress if wrong app version is installed/uninstalled?

Bekkie Sanchez

The updates are ruining it. I'm giving it 3 stars because I can't change my devices names they revert back. Not happy you made the bookmark smaller it's hard to see and find. I liked the satin look of it why change it? Books downloaded have to be removed and reloaded to the carousel. Glitches galore when it worked well before.

Amy Burgess

Updates are terrible!!!! Every time there is an update, it messes with the kindle unlimited books. I literally have to uninstall the app, then download it again, just to finish a book. I would give it 4 stars If they would fix this, but with every it seems more problems arise! :/

Janet Wood

5 star when it works Since new update i cant change viewing order in collections. When i click on view nothing happens sometime I want to find author order but all I get now are titles

Sándor Németh

Great app with bugs I'm using Kindle apps daily on several hardware. This reader is simple, easy to use. Normally I would give 5 stars but the last upgrade did something with the app. Every time I use Kindle on my HTC One M8 it triggers something in Google Play Services, and makes it to hit 50% processor load. When I kill Kindle Reader the processor load goes back to normal. Please fix it!

Griselda Deleon

Keeps saying "unfortunately, amazon kindle has stopped." I tried opening and it just kept repeating it over and over again even when I quit trying to open it

Stephen Brooks

Settings always revert!! No matter what I name my device or what I change my "send-to" Kindle address to, when I look in Settings it has always reverted back to "Stephen's 2nd Android Device" (no clue where my 1st Android Device supposedly is!) and the randomly generated Kindle address. It is only like this in the Android app, when I look at "Manage My Devices" on the Amazon site, the device name and send-to address are correct. This is extremely annoying.

Virgo Olokun

Doesn't recognize my email... I have a Samsung Galaxy Tablet, I've tried signing in to no avail. I even went so far as to do so in the Internet/Chrome apps with the same info and got right in. Guess I'll have to make due with logging in on Chrome to read my books. Or use Google Play Books...

Bucky Tibbitts

Just keeps getting better I have used this app for years now. I love being able to read where ever I am. I hardly ever buy a regular book any more. It's just easier to download them and know they are always with me!

Selrahc Dad

Okay if the ebook is formatted properly. The app works ok as far as it goes, but if there are any formatting problems with the ebook, then the Kindle app does not have any means to adjust for those problems. For example, if the book is in portrait mode and would be better displayed in landscape mode, too bad. You cannot force the display to show it rotated. Also, when viewing graphics, in many cases they are way too small and there's no built-in method to zoom in. Again, these are more problems with the ebooks themselves than with the Kindle app, but it would be nice to be able to compensate for the lower quality ebooks.

A Google User

Minimum effort expended Constant Audible spam. Every time you touch the screen you get nagged to buy audio. On the progress bar there is constantly a symbol for the audio you don't have. Basically adverts splashed across your book

kimberly brooks

I love the app I love the app ut the text to voice is awful. I love being able to sync my books from my Kindle HD with no problems. Also there are lots of free books for all ages and ratings.

Damian Kuciński

Could be a lot better For Amazon books it's great, that's obvious. But I can't read files saved on my device which are not bought on Amazon, and that makes need for another ebook reader. The second thing is size. It takes over 100mb.

Ashley Friedman

Good app! Love it! I used to read on Oyster, and Kindle fills the void that Oyster left when it shut down. One thing that I miss about Oyster: turning the pages with the volume buttons on the sides of my phone. Sometimes that's less work than swiping.

Nicholas Catanese

Hate the update Had everything exactly as I liked it, but Kindle apparently knows better! Had to tweak it back to sepia and tell it which device I want it to download to. No big deal. But for some reason the font is either a bit too small or laughably large. Also, just plain dumb margin settings. Very annoying!

A Google User

Really like it However, I don't like when I turn my device and it suddenly unlocks the screen AND won't let me lock it the way I want it until I've closed the app and then turned it back on later.

Jerry Williams

This app sucks! This app keeps losing my place and resetting so that I have to go page by page to try and get back to where I was browsing in the store. It's like they don't want you to buy anything. I hate nook but it's better than this.

Bogdan Oprea

The word runner should be a little smarter (ie C H A P T E R should all be displayed at once) and have the abillity to display more than one word at a ține for better understanding.

Aeva Faye

Love it; but... This app does need an overhaul. It needs a fresh and new design. It also needs search suggestions while in the store and it would be incredibly better if it also kept your current search in the bar instead of having to re-type your previous. For example: searching "Darren" and then wanting to add "Shan" onto the end but need to re-type "Darren" as it doesn't remember your search.

Simon Esposito

It's brilliant. I give it four stars only because it's a work in progress. (App needs to be able to remember individual typeface settings for each book, and some kind of vertical justification is needed to cope with illustrations and page-breaks in stanzaic poetry.) Five minutes with this app on my first smartphone (Samsung S5) made my Kindle Voyage redundant. Smaller screen, yes, but readability is better with clarity of type and quality of typesetting astonishingly good. Colour! Contrast! No more faulty line justification! Gorgeous fonts! Easy-eye sepia toning! ....Another heap of printed books can now be removed from my tiny house. I've also discovered high quality dictionary apps, like the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, which blow away the printed versions.

Chloe Reddington

Keeps crashing It worked perfectly fine and I loved my kindle I even paid up to kindle unlimited because I read so much. Since it updated it keeps crashing and will not allow me to open the app. I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no effect. I am extremely angry and upset by this. Why change something that works perfectly fine!!

Charles Fiertz

Great - except issue with screen brightness Great app, one of my most frequently used. One fairly annoying issue though - the screen brightness is independent of the brightness I've set for my phone, which is rather annoying when I want the phone to be dark and the Kindle app insists on shining brightly into my eyes.

Janell Ostrander

Bit annoyed that the + more link when on the about book tab keeps breaking. It worked a few updates ago but stopped again. Could you please fix it again? It's annoying to have to open the store to read the full info if you already bought it

No access to books downloaded via kindle lending library and still needs a free read aloud function like the actual Kindle and the ability to have other books on it too again, like the kindle. If the actual kindle and Google Books can do it so why can't the kindle app?? I have access to the Kindle Lending Library at the moment but I can't read any of those downloads via this app.

Autumn Forrester-Light

I love this app... However I wish there was a way to make the app more parental control friendly for non kindle users. For those if us who use iPad or Android it's not many options to limit the parental controls for age appropriate content. That would be awesome for this app please. Even if it's no more than limiting the app to show only downloaded content unless a password or pin is entered.

Major bug ruins experience Everything else is good, but after downloading books on the phone, when I try to load the book I get an error "invalid item, please delete and download again" because of this everytime I want to read a book , I have to remove it and re-download, this eats up my data plan, so it becomes pointless , its as good as reading online on a browser if I have to keep removing and adding the book to read. I have more than 500 books bought on kindle, I can't keep doing this .

Mary Griffin

Can't transfer more than 10 titles I would have given this app 5 stars if only I could somehow mass transfer my ebook collection from my library to a device. I have over 9000 ebooks, so transferring in 10 book batches is not exactly feasible. I may not need that many at one time, but I'd like to download all of them onto my laptop for offline reading and I don't want it to be an all-weekend long project. Please let me know when you resolve this issue. Then I'll give it 5 stars.

Lauren Clough

This is one of the apps I use the most. It is not without issues, though. It crashes frequently, the brightness adjusts itself (and unchecks the option to use my device's automatic brightness), and will sometimes fail to sync between devices and even try to sync to an earlier page.

John Currier

It's a decent reader even though it lacks continuous scrolling or even paging with the volume buttons. It makes up for lacking those fundamental features with a slick auto-scrolling mode that helps you read faster and great integration with Audible. The pages stay in sync while listening to Audible (awesome feature), but I've had many situations where hitting the 30-second back button takes you back something like 30 pages.

Hope Maestas

Love it! I am such a bookworm . I love not having to carry books around I can find pretty much anything in here. I Love kindle unlimited, it's just $9.99 per month and I can read as many as I want, I generally read 3-5 books per month, save $$$

Tracy Venezia

Sort/View by Series Please make series/series order an optional but recognized field. Tired of having to perform a Google search to determine reading order when ready to start the next book in a series. This will earn 5 stars for sure as I have found no other readers that offer this to date.

Brenda Laser

Galaxy Tab Don't like it that I can't move this app to my SD Card! Will probably go back to reading on my PC due to memory space! Will give 5 stars when I can move to card!

Wendy Eisner

This app is absolutely the worst Love to read figured I could use this to purchase ebooks, no matter what my settings are what my address is i cannot purchase anything. So a waste of my money and time

Joseph Sloan

Won't Install. The latest update won't install on LG G4. I deleted the whole app to start fresh, and it still won't update. Now I can't use the app at all. What happened?! Now I have no access to the hundreds of books I've downloaded!! **Also wanted to add this:* I've just read over 15 reviews, detailing people's difficulties with the last several updates, and there isn't a single reply from even the lowliest of customer non-service reps on a single bad review. This will cost you lots of money!!

Epiphanie M

Missing Books I just dl to my 6+ edge today, however, none of my books have synced to this device. They still show up on my iPad app for Kindle but as of right now, none of them will sync or appear. I triple checked my acct. info and even deregistered and reregistered my Android, still nothing. Any suggestions as to how to fix this and get my books and collections to sync?

Thomas Hann

won't install stuck on "installing" every time I try to install. restarted my phone, same thing. just wont install

Louise Cook

Update is poor Page data display is floored, where scrolling back and forth is required to have the words appear. YOGA TAB 3

Dev Preston

At first a worse audio/reading function I love to listen and read together, or switch between voice and text. As well as losing me a purchased narration, the new update stopped the headphone icon working that gave audio controls while reading, and the option to speed up or slow the audio vanished. Badly done, Kindlefolk. Update: after 2 forced stops and uninstall/reinstalls the audio functions returned.

A Google User

Latest version quits when I select text or highlight In my academic work, highlighting is crucial in my reading. Please fix this! Galaxy Note 4 running 5.1.1.

Scott Heckler

Latest Update Broken My most used app is not really useable after the latest update. Turning back a page jumps to the start of the chapter. Turning a page moves halfway between the two pages. As in, half of page 1 is on the left of the screen and half of page 2 is on the right side. I have to constantly hold my finger on the screen to see a whole page. But if I waver a little to the side BAM! back to the start of the chapter.

Katie Hardin

Horrible When is the Android app going to get the new upgrade so opening a book does not take forever? Takes 7 minutes to verify every book in your Amazon account before opening book downloaded on device EACH time you go to app. Reading and need to send a text...wait 7 minutes to open book again!

John Webster

Kindle on my tablet rocks! Nicely done app, it syncs with my Paperwhite. Makes unnecessary to read on my phone if I forgot the Paperwhite. That's easier on my aging vision. I still prefer the Paperwhite for serious reading but the app is very good when needed.

Okulus Anomali

Was great until last couple of updates (Android): the easy bookmarking feature has been gone for a while (as a matter of fact there is no visual Bookmark at all anymore) & now the dictionary nor the highlights work at all either. If you highlight text nothing happens... It's a shame because this was an awesome app prior to all these failures...please fix this asap...

Kitty Harris

Absolutely LOVE IT! I use the Kindle reader app so often. I don't have to carry around a separate device, and I can use it everywhere.


Updates Needed It's time for auto-night view, footnote pop-up and blue light filter like Google Play books. Vertical continuous scrolling is must on a phone. (iBooks, Fire phone or Moon Reader) Enhanced typsetting still not present in all titles. The older typesettings are among the more ugly to read with many gaps between words. The optional narrow side margins in enhanced typesetting are good, no-margin option (smaller phones) would be great. Still the best, peerless shopping environment, dictionary, translation.

Katie Meeks

This most recent update has a glitch where the brightness of the page can only be adjusted by the phone's brightness. This is severely irritating and the first and only glitch I have come across with this app.

Kay Shubeck

I use the Kindle App quite often and have enjoyed it. After 4-23-16 the app will not sync to my Galaxy Note 4. I am using android version 5.1.1. I tried to send this feedback but the app is not functioning properly to allow me to send it through the feedback option. The app will not close and I have to force close it as well. The latest update is not working well. Please repair the app, or roll back the app until you have determined what is causing all the issues that are occurring with so many of your users!

Genesis Sandoval

Kindle and its features I LOVE my Kindle app! Its features such as, Whispersync are extremely convenient for those of us that switch between reading and listening. I don't have to look for the last place I was reading because it automatically saves it, like a bookmark! The only thing I would say that needs an upgrade would be the Kindle shop; it's an outdated appearance and function. Other than that, I really have no complaints for this app!

Pamela Robison

I am happy! Love to read and Kindle makes it easy to keep my habit seamlessly uninterrupted! Absolutely the best way to enjoy my lunch break, waiting for an appointment or passing time while hubby is in the auto parts store!

Ashley Gallegly

Ugh Latest updated makes page scrolling a pain. It scrolls to the middle of two pages. Also, when I try to download samples from the store - nothing happens!

Stephen Brooks

Settings always revert!! No matter what I name my device or what I change my "send-to" Kindle address to, when I look in Settings it has always reverted back to "Stephen's 2nd Android Device" (no clue where my 1st Android Device supposedly is!) and the randomly generated Kindle address. It is only like this in the Android app, when I look at "Manage My Devices" on the Amazon site, the device name and send-to address are correct. This is extremely annoying.

Hannah Hess

I can't figure out how to change the brightness setting. When I open a book it blinds me with light and I can't fix it, this makes it painful to read in a dark room.

Mir Ali

Update 04/25/16 Went back to improper page swiping where when you swipe the page will go further to either left or right extreme.Please fix this app for the android phone.

karen strange

Pointless I need page numbers and workout using a complicated calculation can't get them. Now I own a £35 kindle book which is useless to me. Have been told to try other apps add they do. Yet another reason to hate amazon. They are piling up.

Derek Bills

New update slow Don't know what they did in latest update, but it freezes alot and takes forever to open up every time I leave the app. Get a call? Wait another 10 minutes.

Noel White

Audio narration doesn't work Signed up for kindle unlimited for the audio books, but the app can't play them. It can download the audio narration, but the play button doesn't do anything.

Steve Beall

"Unable to install update ... " Over and over, multiple times a day, update notifications ... and then the "unable to install ... " message, with a generic link to their troubleshooting page ... who has the time or inclination to solve Amazon's problems for them?! All my apps' upgrades and updates are installing fine, including much larger ones are perfectly able to install. Same nonsense is happening with Amazon Music. And don't get me started about Amazon Prime's pathetic "we're having problems playing thus video " messages,

Coni Stephenson

We'll see.... Just updated a couple of days was doing pretty well BUT, now I'm having issues will the page getting stuck in between pages. Tried running off phone, then reopen app works for awhile but is still getting stuck between still, then I tried backing out to library, reopen book, this will reset page right, but still will occur, turn page get stuck repeat......not happy with update!

Shane Lofgren

Version crashes a lot on my Samsung Galaxy s4. The pages will get stuck and display half a page. The menu will crash and not show chapters. I have to constantly close out and reopen the app. Previous versions would allow me to leave the app open all day with no issues. I would give the previous versions a 5 star rating but the latest version only gets a 1 star. Please correct this release. ***Update 4/17/2016*** The latest version fixed my issues. I also had emailed the dev team with the above issue. I got a quick polite response thanking me for making them aware of the issue. Top notch support.

Carla Mann

Kindle for android Best loved, most used app on my phone. Easy to use. I'm never without my phone so, I'm never without my "book." So much better than having to carry an actual book around with me. Love it ! Many titles in the genre i like most and so easy to purchase (of course) and whenever i have encountered a problem or an issue i couldn't fix on my own, Amazon customer service has always been very helpful and patient. Pleasant even. I recommend the app to anyone who likes to read.

Andrew Green

App now stuck in landscape After an update the app now won't orientate in portrait and is stuck in landscape mode! On a note 4

Victor Gold

Interface makes me want to puke. Disgusting. After I payed for books on iOS finding a decent app on iPad shocked to find this on android. App slow. Interface sluggish. Fluent is app doesn't know about. Page change is awful. No page animation. This is on very powefull intel device. How did you manage to install to some many users?

Muhammad Faris

Works fine This app works perfectly fine although the store page was a mess. I've also encountered problems like unable to download the narration for my books after i updated my android phone.

For Google Stuff

Type is still too bloody large! I seem to hope in vain for a smaller point size option with the fonts. Currently it's like trying to read large-print childrens' books. When will we be able to use our own fonts, or have the ability to make the existing smaller? Until that time, useless.

Larry Schiefer

Always full brightness is terrible, nav so-so My biggest complaint is the app always puts the screen brightness to full. With pages shown as white with black text, this is very hard on the eyes, especially in low light. It makes it uncomfortable to read unless I'm outside. Just leave the brightness alone. Navigation between pages gets messed up between just a tap vs. a swipe, so it's easy to miss pages or have a hard time coming out of full screen.

Danny Sieg

Amazon Kindle update 21 March 16 Digital assets for a weight and health conscious diabetic without an educated knowledge of nutrition. A more sophisticated means for an individual on the go to enjoy a best-selling work of, fiction or nonfiction book. Spring & Summer are upon us, thank goodness for a pleasurable story to relax with in colonial New England! It's rewarding to enjoy the advantages of being an Amazon Prime member. Amazon still does business the "Old Fashioned Way" treating customers with respect, good values and dependability!

Tommy Rogers

Great for digital storage We live in a very small space and don't have a lot of room for paper books. Although I love the way books smell and one of my favorite places in the world is a room full of books because of the aroma they put off this is a much better option. I can have hundreds of titles on any portable device and not have to build shelving and house a bunch of titles in my own private physical Library. I love the way I can switch between my PC and my tablet and my smartphone and pick up on the page I stopped reading on.

Alanna Johnson

Glitchy on the LG Tribute 2. The color won't show on the passages that I highlight. When I try to turn a page, the book will skip all the way to the end. Please fix.

Tenney Fuller

Kindle for Android 1. U.S.A. English Dictionary keeps getting corrupted and becomes unusable. Must keep uninstalling app and then reinstalling and hope it corrects the problem. 2. App is a memory hog. If you leave app open, when you get back to it later: a. The whole system is bogged down, or b. An error message stating that the Sim Card is missing and you are forced to reboot system.

Chris D'Arcy

Latest update rubbish Crashes all the time. When it doesn't crash it interrupts reading to sync and loses the place you have read to. Really annoying

Lindsay Gspandl

Broken app store I just got a new phone (Galaxy S7) of course this was one of the first apps I downloaded. I go to browse the kindle store and find it's so broken it's unusable. I can't filter books AT ALL. It picks the first random subcategory and goes with that. Really Amazon? Get your act together and TEST your product before release.

Anita Ryan

Come on This is the worst update to date. I have never had this much problems since this recent update. I have been using Kindle since 2010. Please update soon

Tony Harrison

Whispersync problems I have whispersync disabled on device and on my Amazon account but everything still gets synced.

james cannell

Terrible Agree with other comments. Pages get stuck halfway. No nice page transition. How can something as simple as displaying text on a screen be implemented so badly.

Derek Wilson

When I open a kindle eBook to read, I see "Add Audible Narration" advertisement underneath the Action Bar (right under "Aa" settings). I want to be able to switch this off 1) I purchased a book, and don't want to see advertisements when I'm reading it. There is already something in the left Navigation drawer "Upgrade with Audio". No need to put an add directly on the screen. 2) This is not a Kindle device, so these adds are not subsidizing said device. 3) Every time I touch the screen to reveal menu options, it shows. I should be able to dismiss it forever. 4) The purchase button is right underneath all the menu options like "Aa", Share, the overflow menu, etc - so its VERY easy to hit by mistake. This is very sleazy. I do not usually offer feedback on apps however this change has annoyed me so much that I need something to change. I will provide a 1 star review until this is changed. The rest of the app is very good and a pleasure to use.

Steven Tysl

Cannot update/cannot uninstall This app keeps failing to updated, and I cannot uninstall it from my G4 because for some unknown reason LG has decided to make this app a pre installed bloat ware after updating to 6.0 marshmallow when I was still on lollipop this wasn't one of the pre installed apps I was able to uninstall and reinstall it when I wanted

Cathy Morgan

They've fixed it! With my new phone, I wasn't able to open a book without the app closing but they seem to have fixed that problem within the last few days. Thank you for fixing that. :-)

Rogi Lara

Current version keeps notifying me of "no internet connection" and there is no way to shut off this constant NAGGING. I purposely turned off my data and I currently have no wifi connection so why am I being penalized for that?

Mia Ang

While I love that I have many books to choose from, I hate that it pulls me out of the current book I'm reading to "synchronize". It also loses my spot in the book. I have to use the bookmark feature to be able to get to the page was I currently reading. It just doesn't improve! I would also prefer to give it 0 star. Until it does improve , I don't recommend getting this app.

Shaji K

Can use some basic improvements I use the Kindle app on a few devices, including android smart phones as well as an iPad. I would like to suggest some minor improvements, which could result in much better user experience. When I purchase a full book after finishing a sample download, it is quite silly that the purchased book is not synched with the sample of the same, eg the last page read, the highlighted parts, all are not synched from the sample of the same book sample.. Also, your dictionary is not as good as the Google Play's.

Mandy Boren

Won't update The application won't update since I updated my note 5 to marshmallow. super annoying. I can't even seem to get help from anyone regarding this problem.

Roseann Srone

Help! Yet again, I can only download samples not books I paid for weeks ago. I can download things from other apps but not Kindle. Again, my emails to Kindle have been unanswered. My phone is clean & my Internet connection good. Once again, I've had to resort to giving a negative review. That's how I got help before. Pathetic.

John Manley

It works most of the time I enjoy listening to the audio portion when I'm doing things around the house, on a bus or an airplane. However I have a couple of issues: (1) it keeps loosing my place when I close my Sony Xperia Z2 tablet cover and reopen it; (2) it removes books already downloaded automatically forcing me to waist valuable Internet time/money downloading my books again; (3) unable to move my downloaded books to an external SD memory or USB flash drive.

Jennifer Wertz

OK for reading but... I use this for reading while standing in lines and don't have my Paperwhite with me and it is fine for that. However, every time I get a notification about a series I might enjoy or a sale I want to look at, I click on the notification and it always says no network detected. This is extremely frustrating since I'm always connected to wifi when I click on them but still get an error. Then they disappear and I can't find them again to even try looking in a different way. Help!

Conrad Roe

I'd like to give it 5 stars but... Feedback for my Samsung s4 mini phone. I love the app for reading, especially at night. As I tend to read it without my spectacles I need to make adjustments easily - it was fine until the last update when the adjustment strip's icons were made smaller and difficult to distinguish. Please change back to help people like me who do not wear their specs in bed!

Max Rodli

Good, but I get booted Great app. I rated it five stars because it synchronises every minute and boots me out of my book.

Raymond W. Kessler III

Every time I try to download the new update I get an error code -505 and it won't update, I'm using a LG G3 on Verizon. Update this is garbage still won't update and since I can no longer use and can't delete it from my phone I'm going to disable it

Carlee Mahajan

Best ever I absolutely love this app. I have access to all the books I have on my "Bedtime" Kindle while I am stuck in lines waiting. The time passes much better with a book!

david davis

Latest update It simply won't install. I've went through all troubleshooting, not fixing it.

Colin Cooper

A good choice The ability to read in low light situations and change font type and size etc. makes this app a good choice for me. I can read in the waiting room, by the pool, at thirty five thousand feet or just about anywhere. It syncs efficiently between phone and tablet. What's not to like about it? I've read a few bad reviews and think their disappointment might be down to the hardware rather than the app itself.

Sable Beale

Used to love it I have kindle unlimited I love reading but lately when I read the app shuts off goes black and I loose were I was reading then I have to find it all over its a pain please fix this issue pronto and you will get 5 stars out of me.

Maycee Gullatt

Sooo, no samples with KU? Is there a reason it won't let me download a sample of a kindle unlimited book unless I return one I currently have? It didn't use to be like this and it's honestly really annoying. I want to read samples before I decide if I want to download the whole book and now I can't.

Nikki Weber

TERRIBLE: NEW UPGRADE Won't allow update on LG G4, after reading MANY reviews this seems to be a common problem...SO FIX IT!!!! I am incredibly upset!!! I called and a spoke specifically to someone from Verizon & they had me try a ton of different things including deleting all data & disabling the app it's original pre-installed version. I still couldn't install it before I did any of these things & now I can't even open the app period because it's at it's original state and all it says it keeps telling me is to get kindle for Android & then just leads me to here & wants me to update it!!!!! NEW UPGRAE for LG DOES NOT WORK!!!

Katherine Parker

Constant 'No internet connection' notification Kindle keeps coming up many times a day with a 'no internet connection message. It's correct that in the times it pops up I've turned my WiFi and data off, but in those times I'm not wanting to use Kindle. Please can you stop it doing that? I've got a screenshot of it but this feedback form won't let me attach it.

Amy Elizabeth Poehler

Broken I like to keep this updated in case my Kindle runs out of battery (I'm forgetful). For the past couple of weeks I can't update it. It always gives me an error. I've tried deleting apps to free space, clearing open apps to clear memory, nothing works. As a last resort I tried uninstalling updates to reinstall and now it's stuck at factory reset and none of the updates will install.

Tracy Dyson

Love Kindle Great app but having problem. When turning to the next page in a book, my screen appears blank. The text will only show if I change he size or font of the text. It's completely annoying. It doesn't do that with all books. Just some. Thought it was related to memory, but that's not it either.

Dawn McKinnis

Once I updated my phone software (Samsung) I have not been able to update the Kindle App. I guess the old version will have to do...

Bella Blue Cat

The new updates need bugs fixed!! I LOVED this app before the latest updates which need to have the bugs fixed. My app freezes up while listening to audio downloads with the books & also freezes the app and makes the screen go black. I am so disappointed and wish I was able to get rid of the updates because I drive constantly and need my audio books! Until this is fixed I am dropping my 5 star review to 1!

Robert Raiford

BS ad notification spam - don't install! Wtf are these amazon branded ads doing in my notification bar now? Is Amazon not getting enough of my money already that they have to constantly annoy me with this crap too? Luckily I can block all notifications, but that means no useful ones either.

Mark Glesinger

Embedded advertising while reading?! Could you possibly think of a new way to suck more! Widget? Of course not. Direct content from a widget would bypass ads. Don't understand that concern as you interrupt reading to push you ads.

Dario Bigongiari

Crashes and looses track of progress It's happening for a few months now,especially while listening to audible. After I stop listening progress will be lost and I have to manually fast forward through the book every time I restart.

MD Lahey

Buggy! This IS the current version, and it is plagued by bugs, at least in this version for Android: Menu bar selections and word search-the-web only work about 1/3 of the time, and sometimes do not even appear on the menu bar. Menu bar is invoked, then cannot be dismissed, nor the page turned. No excuse for this, Amazon! FIX IT!

susobhan sarkar

Joy of discovery Before today I had no idea that reading on kindle could be so much joy. Out of a misplaced belief in the superiority of traditional books over e books,I had never even bothered to give kindle a try. Now I regret missing out on days of joy that an earlier embracing of Kindle would have afforded me. Only one request:do not ever shut it down,no matter how much critics foretell death of kindle. You are a blessing to mankind. If only I had known earlier...

Nicolai Kenneth Petersen

From perfect to not so perfect It was perfectly fine for me on lollipop and earlier, but after marsmellow, came the trouble. Now i can't open books, the covers disappeared. I can still buy books without trouble. I hope there is a solution on the way. I have always been happy with this app before and never had any problems with it before. Thanks

A Google User

Settings always revert!! No matter what I name my device or what I change my "send-to" Kindle address to, when I look in Settings it has always reverted back to "Stephen's 2nd Android Device" (no clue where my 1st Android Device supposedly is!) and the randomly generated Kindle address. It is only like this in the Android app, when I look at "Manage My Devices" on the Amazon site, the device name and send-to address are correct. This is extremely annoying.

Heidi Weihrauch

Getting really sick of not being able to navigate to where I want when I want. If I check out end pages on one device then accidentally sync, I can ever sync devices again and have it work. Come on fix this crap, used to be able to do it.

Victoria Roberts

4/20...Lowered rating...going to Nook 1) I do not like having apps preloaded & forced on me on my phone and normally will not patronize these providers, but I use Amazon as my go-to app for books. 2) I cannot get the update to load..I get a 505 message.. followed all steps to clear this. 3) When I pay for an item within an app, I do not like having ads pop up in my purchase. 4) I use Amazon on my Nook e-reader. Except for prior purchases, I will be using Nook & purchasing from B&N until ads are removed on purchased items & I can update phone.

Christopher Honeycutt

Can't Update It downloads fully ok, but when it proceeds to install I get Google error -505. I looked up the error code but there is no info on it. I have tried updating it on WiFi and on 4G with same results, cleared data on Google Play app, and even disabled Amazon Kindle then renabled it. Nothing I try works. I am using Android 6.0 Marshmallow on a Droid Turbo 2. No other app fails to update just Amazon Kindle. Is it not compatible with 6.0?

Larry Adams

Crashes on book open Started at 4.22, same at 4.24, startup shows home page, tap on book icon to open and read, get android dialog, 'Sorry, Amazon Kindle has stopped'. I have to delete updates and revert to 4.4 so I can read anything. Running Android 4.4.2 on Asus K00C.

John Miller

Black Screen While reading the system goes black and you must select the book again but you have lost your place because it resets to the starting point. This occurs on a regular basis even though I have airplane mode on and WiFi off. Very very very irritating!!!! That's the number of times the screen went black. Sometimes in a minute and sometimes in a couple of seconds. If I could take away the one star that would be more accurate. Useless!

Abhishek Malik

Need a way to go back to the page before link jump I have lots of links in my ebooks and I end up touching one of these links during page flips. After that I have no way to go back to the page from where I came. I have to start over again by finding that topic from the table of contents. Kobo has this feature to go back to where a user came from. This is helpful especially in accidental jumps. I really hope to see this feature in an almost perfect app like Kindle.

Phyllis Coffie

It wouldn't let me update it on my SD card, so I uninstalled and reinstalled and know I can't get it to go back on my SD card. Card has plenty of space. This happens a lot.

Sanchez Edwards

Annoying quick swipe gestures! The swipe gestures are annoying! When I try to bookmark the page in the top right corner or touch the left or right side of the screen just to bring up the menu, the app keeps changing pages and I always lose where I am reading. Please make it so I can choose what swipe gestures I want, or just make the app easier when wanting to bring up the menu or just to turn pages.

Mike Leary

irritating UX; crashy Highlighting crashes the app. Clean reinstall didn't help. Latest versions keep jumping to chapter start (or a certain page) when I first start the app and turn back the page, and at random other times turning pages. Now I have to bookmark "early and often". Filters for notes and marks are great; can actually read notes in the list. No continuous vertical scrolling yet. Should be able to use back button to return from footnote.

Balasubramanya Sharma

Initially the app. worked well with the books opening. I purchased a book after my initial experience. Recently not able to read any books as the download is not complete. The sample books are also not opening in my device (lenovo k3 note) after download. I have also tried many uninstall/installs but this does not work. Need your feedback.

Sharaya K

Great app. I love that now when I open my bookmarks, it automatically shows bookmarks near my current location in the book instead of having to scroll through the list to find my next bookmark. Though I do wish there was just one button I could push to take me to my next bookmark. Load time has gotten significantly shorter. Finally page turn effects!

Peter Midgley

Dreadful Unstable app. Crashes daily. Unresponsive developer. Cannot change page background in the current release. The drop down menu appears, I select... nothing happens. Customer service is excellent. But no text to speech is so behind other readers that it needs to stay at 1 until Amazon listens to its customers on this critical issue.

Lou Martin

Won't open. What did you guys do? The app launches but just sits at a black screen with the word Kindle in the middle. Eventually I get an error that Kindle is not responding. So when testing the update I guess just going so far as to simply launch the app was too much work?

Celeste Garrett

Really liked it but now not so sure Can't download the latest update. I have enough memory to download and install but I keep getting an error. Please fix this. 9/5 still can't update. WTH? I really like reading on my phone and not having carry my Kindle everywhere. Now I can't update. Have tried the "recommended" fix and still nothing!!!! ***Update -finally managed to get the app to update. Had to update "Audiobooks for Audible" before ANY Amazon app would update.

Stephen Brooks

Device Name Settings Always Revert!!! No matter what I change my device name or the "send-to" email address to, they always revert back to the default. This has been an issue for well over a year now. I don't understand why it is so hard to fix.

Lisa Mintz

Needs brightness adjustment feature. I'm surprised that this app doesn't have (ai screen brightness control The brightness control DOES NOT control tô+nhe Kindle app brightness. I like to read using this app in the dark at night however the screen brightness is so high it actually hurts my eyes Very bright electronic screens have been known to hinder sleep..keeps your brain active.

Finally page flipping! ;) Oh I know it sounds silly but a long time ago I had a book reader, since discontinued, that had animated page flip when changing pages. It's something I've missed on Kindle fire years! So glad they finally added it! Makes reading feel more.... Natural.

Ok I really love this app BUT it just updated and now instead of just flicking to a new page it does this ridiculous page turning graphic which is just dumb. It takes more time and bothers my eyes, how on earth do I turn this piece of stupidity off? I am reading an electronic device, I do not need fakey book simulation!

COMPLETELY FAILS TO WORK AFTER UPDATE All was working ok for years - I have read countless books now - then this latest update UTTERLY killed it. Tried force stop, clear data, uninstall restart - all ends in failure to even start the app ... TERRIBLE.


Awesome app ruined kindle store I personally love the actual kindle app. I don't know if this is only for android 6.0 but they took away the ability to search for newest book of a genre. If I want to see the newest zombie book out I have to go through the actual website to find the newest titles. This pretty much makes buying kindle books through the kindle app worthless.

Almost there.. Upgraded my Amazon Kindle on my Samaung GS7edge, everything was perfect until the use of dictionary. What happened?This is very important and useful! Please fix this problem. It would've been nice to switch from phone and kindle.

DeRosset Myers

For God sake, fix the crash problem!! It really pisses me off when I click on a notification only to have the app stop working when I launch it by doing so. I don't know if that's a problem for anyone else, but when touch a notification, it disappears and never comes back (I blame this on phone makers as well -- seriously, no history retrieval?!) so if I see an offer I like and click/touch it, often I lose that offer because the app crashes (the offer doesn't always show up when I click on the store icon). Maybe this problem was fixed in the la

Bow Player

Constant Crashes Really loved this app until recently. It crashes constantly even when the app is not in use. When this is fixed I will raise my rating but not unless it gets fixed. So annoying! Upgraded rating from one star to two. Latest update has helped but problem still exists but not as badly as before. Get it completly fixed and I'll raise rating back to four stars

Sandy Tucker

Not a good update Really liked older version of Kindle..especially the store interface. But I did wonder if there were any improvements, so I updated to the latest version. Big mistake. Now the store is worse, even terrible. Doesn't display deals like it did before. Sub-categories seem different so I can't find books I could before.

A Google User

Please undo this update What have you done?! This page turning thing is awful and I can't find any way to turn it off. Completely distracting every time I turn the page, ruins the reading experience ?

Harry Henry Gebel

Stop page flips! I love Amazon and Kindle, but what the heck is this new page flip animation? Extremely annoying and distracting and I can't find any way to turn it off! It's actually making it painful to use the app. Also, please stop taking over my brightness settings, I keep turning it to "use system settings", then a few days later it resets back to managing brightness itself. Five stars if you turn off the page flipping.

Kaper kh

Great for old eyes Love this application. Great for avid readers. Sepia pages and changeable font size really help old eyes and eye strain. I am currently having a few technical issues which I hope will be resolved soon. I highly recommend this app and hope my issues will be resolved soon.

Neil Thomas

Great app but some problems Great to have Kindle books on my tablet rather than having to buy a Kindle device. Downside being that the average file size is larger than the equivalent epub. Updated the app 14 Sept and had problems opening it. Took ages but finally got it working after reinstalling twice.

leash frk

Better than the majority This app has better features than most ive used or came across, as for the whiners out there, get over your spoiled rotten selves and realize this is a free app to keep all of your books available to you. There are no perfect apps out on the market, but this app has made it easier for those of us book lovers. Great job amazon.

Shannon Jiménez

What's with the page flipping? I loved this app until today (my only complaint would have been the bugginess going from a sample to the whole book... more often than not it loses my place in the the book). But today's update added an annoying page flipping animation that makes it take longer to get to a new page and is extremely annoying. And, as far as I can tell, there's no way to turn it off! I'd be 4 1/2 stars without this new "feature."

Adam Towers

Page flip I just noticed that the app has decided to do this page flip nonsense. I thought i had hit something by mistake but after looking at some reviews it seems that it was in an update that never asked me if i wanted to update. If your going to put something like that in at least put in an option to turn it off. Nothing like ramming something down your throat that you didn't ask for....

courtney maze

Awesome when it works. Love kindle books and kindle unlimited but hate the app. Doesn't always open and closes or freezes all the time. Happens on my phone, tablet, and laptop so I know the problem is the app. Support just says to remove it and reinstall the app. Sucks to have to download all my books every time I have to reinstall the app to get it to open.


Give us the option If you're going to add a silly page turn effect, give us the option of NOT having to use it. Way too distracting. Samsung gal note4

Jen Owen

Optional page flipping please! Used to love the Kindle app, used it daily and it has virtually replaced my actual Kindle (sorry Amazon) but please make the page flipping feature optional. I'm a fast reader and this interferes with my reading experience. Would be nice to be able to turn it off. Would get 5 stars from me if you could sort this little thing out.

Ria Merriman

Doesn't open any more, I never had any problems until the last couple days, but it won't open any more. Please fix it! Ok, I just upgraded from 1 to 3 stars because after several attempts & shut downs, I was able to open it. Not very reliable though.

Ajay Gopal

Asks several times for WiFi connection when offline There should be a system to arrange books on a virtual book shelf. The carousel is not convenient for people with many books.

Emmett Bogart

Serious issues Listen. I used to love this app. I used it all the time! But all of a sudden it deleted all my books and will not let me sync, and yes I am logged into my account and I have the right device. As it turns out that I'm not the only one with this problem. It has been a while but nothing has been done to fix it. It's so annoying because I want to keep reading but there is nothing I can do until this is fixed. I'll change my rating when it's all back in order but for the time being I am furious.

Sheldon Xu

Just stopped working one day Was okay (UI is rougher than Google Play Books, with less customization options as well). But then one day all my books' covers disappeared and when I tap on a cover (just an empty black rectangle), nothing happens. Unfortunately I only noticed this when we reached 10000 ft. Even with internet, I can't access any of my books.

Tuan Nguyen

Good; could use some major tweaks To everybody complaining about the dumb page flip animation: you can turn it off in your settings. Home screen/settings/page curl/off. Done. The problem I can't figure out? The reading position memory sometimes glitches and you have to page-forward until you recognize where you last stopped reading. This happens most frequently when using the listen feature. I can't even wake my phone up without the reader backtracking to a previous position. Fix this and I'll 5* my review.

Y. Sarah Bukhman-DeRuyter

What happened? I had absolutely no problems with the Kindle app, loved it and used it happily for a few years - until today. Now, it just hangs on starting and doesn't get past the Kindle screen. The system ends up shutting it down. Going to try reinstalling it. Very annoying!

Desarae Fuchs

Awesome app! I never knew I could put this on my phone before! I have a kindle touch and love the fact I can download my books from there on to my phone. This way, I don't have to have my kindle all the time! I just have to go to where I left off from either device! Easy to use!

Gavin McElroy

It was working fine. Was working fine before the most recent update. Suddenly I can't get any of my comics to read properly. Everything is formatted weird and entire panels are disappearing. Please fix this.

Patrice Wheeler

Can't live with out it Better then dragging books around I can read books fast an it would cost me a fortune for regular books an love the kindle prime if u read as much as I do its awsome

Samrat Roy

Love this app Sold my Kindle device became who needs one when u have this on our android device.(debatable statement, but I don't care)

Bryan Waters

Latest update brings this app to the fore For a long time the Kindle app lagged behind others, the page view feature is wonderful. And now with page curl... Its perfect

Jonathan Wright

Clumsy UI and slow performance Latest bug doesn't allow syncing to last page read when purchasing a book from a sample. Not a terrible problem but it is annoying.

Katy Morton

Back to 5 stars now that I got page flip off To turn off page flip go to main library page click the menu go to settings and unclick the page flip box... Yes it can be turned off thank god! Lol

Ninad Pethkar

New update is fantastic Earlier this app was a mess. Now amazon did a great job and upadted this app. New features to view pages and go back to previous page at a click is nice. Overall great improvement..

Steve Berry

Still would like a day/night toggle, but... Thank you for fixing the crashing-when-changing-page-color problem.

Chris Edwards

Fantastic app What more can I say about this app. It is an amazing piece of software. It ticks all my boxes, bar 1 and this is the brightness of the screen when a book is open . Despite setting my screen brightness to max the background always appears like a dark grey. So if you can fix this then I would be very grateful

Amber Robinson

Extensive library I absolutely love that I can access my endless library from any device. The book choices are amazing and I couldn't be happier with the kindle app. I'm addicted and have been for years. My cousin bought me an Amazon Kindle for Christmas a couple years ago because he was tired of seeing me read on my phone with such a tiny screen...this is just a wonderful app. Never had a problem at all!

Josef Nitzborn

Customers are not Cash-Cows Dear Amazon, I ordered a chess book and since I made my first enquiry I just received great service. On my first feedback that my book didn't arrive on ETA, You refunded my shipment cost. On my second enquiry, about delayed shipment You issued a replacement order immediately. For most businesses its about profits and customers being cash cows. You care about us! I just Couldn't wait to share my joy!

Kevin Clark

Good job amazon Amongst every company that is trying to make you buy things exclusivly through them (ugghummm apple). Amazon stands out from the crowd to let you enjoy their wonderful servicies in a way thats most convinient for you, even if that means you are not buying their kindle products. Bravo

Marco Arrigo

The app is great but I don't quite get why the ads Amazon is bursting with cash. Generally speaking, someone who gets this app in the first place has a Kindle and/or buys ebooks from Amazon... Hence we might well be considered "net contributors" to Amazon wealth. Still, we get the hassle of ads, just as if we were using some third party programme from a poverty-stricken garage developer...

Judith Carter

Listings I use this everyday but am frustrated that I can't put my books into , reading,unread and read lists in the All Items page. Also as I read offline mostly a to review and a delete marker would be handy too to put on the books so I can sort them. I delete them off the On Device page after reading them. Some I want to keep others I want to delete permanently.

What is wrong with you Amazon? I can't believe how incompetent you are for allowing texts to be copied. I've seen many books posted as PDF via a simple google search because of your allowance for copy righted materials to be copied and pasted so easily. Completely incompetent! -5 Stars if I could.

Natalia Jordan

Bad update Since the last update, every time i attempt to change anything on my screen (font size, brightness, etc) it just jumps me back several pages and then freezes. Have to close the app and reopen. So I'm stuck with bright white text in a dark room. Can't change it. Also now takes forever to open.


--- CON's: Excessive "permissions" required! Not obvious how to choose offline-only (except on un-metered WiFi) friendly mode. Forgets which books I've most-recently or most-often accessed (perhaps after I clear my phone's CACHE storage) [I'd like to pin a specific group of books for offline accessibility]. Slows my phone and uses a lot of data. Synch' across devices seems unreliable, for books which I need to jump around in (such as Ignatius-Study-Bible). I suggest easier SD-card usage (+ managemen

Nicole Mitchell

Life saver One night I had to have books for school that were no longer available in the bookstore on campus. Before class I was able to download the book through my Kindle app and showed up prepared and studious! Thanks Amazon Kindle!!!

John Grove

Amazon Kindle Isn't responding Hard to believe Amazon put their name on this piece of trash. Its slow, clunky, and locks up frequently. I've Tried it on 3 different android tablets with 3 different os versions. It's universally bad on all of them. I really want a good ereader for amazon. This definitely isn't it. Updated 11/8/16. The latest version of this app is as bad or worse than the last one. Someone please explain why Amazon can't write a decent android app. Play Books works flawlessly, Kindle should be just as good.

susan adkins

New to kindle Never tried this app until I read an email from my prime account & decided to give it a go. It's incredible. So many free books & information available even to rent. It's nice instead of Google search, I find a book, for free, download & read at my leasure. Very impressed. I have a full library :)

Kyra Millard

Absolutely can't stand new features It updated and now I can only read in landscape mode, the page curl feature is nothing short of a migraine and there seems to be no way to fix it. It makes for a really unpleasant experience

Matt F

Buggy spam machine I love Amazon Kindle but the Android app is constantly crashing on me - complete pos. It also spams notifications for crap I don't want, constantly. I would uninstall but it's part of Verizon's suite of crapware

Mehul Patel

Don't upadate version In new version you cannot scroll down page untill you zoom in page. Very bad interface. I hope upcoming new update will resolve this issue.

Mena Farag

My Collections are blanked out with the new update. The books are all still there (can see them when I press edit) but can't select them or see them in regular view. Not the best.

Vapo NZ

Brightness setting on Shield Tablet Can no longer use device brightness setting. Where did this option go? EDIT: OK, found the setting under the fonts "Aa" Weird place to put it. Why can't the app controlled brightness go as low as the device's brightness setting??

Chismes Mi

HELP I absolutely love this app but for some reason every time I try to purchase a book it says I already bought it when I know I haven't bc it didn't ask for my credit card password and it shoots me straight to the download where it doesn't download at all. I've already tried restarting my phone and disabling the app before getting it back. Please fix this.

Susan Roseberry

This App is great! Especially with all the great free books you can get you will never run out of books to read. Great selection and I discovered a lot of new authors. When I'm looking up a specific subject, I can usually find more than enough books on it. It makes it hard to choose which one I want to purchase. The children's selection of books are fantastic for my grandson, it's great when he's in the back of the car. I would definitely recommend this App.


Upgrade and uniformity needed Still the best but high time for auto-night view, more lay-out options, and, vertical continuous scrolling. Needs uniformity: "Enhanced" type-setting and Google-like page-flip not present in many titles. Nice audio-companions, though many do not work immersive as advertised. Amazon ebook prices now often among the highest, still peerless shopping environment. Non-companion purchased audio titles invisible.

David Huynh

Automatically dims the screen when book is open Can't read as the screen automatically dims too low to read the second your book is loaded! Why? Makes the app useless.

Mike Leary

Almost impossible to scroll down in eTextbooks on phone (page turn wins any vector with horizontal part). Images are too small, a pain to zoom. Word runner should do phrases. eTextbooks are great, but lack horizontal lock when zoomed; zoom resets when turning page. No continuous vertical scrolling. Page navigation rocks (when available). Filters for notes and marks are great; can actually read notes in the list (mostly); not so for popular highlights. On par with Moon reader+

Sarah Cieslinski

Few problems on the Galaxy S7 ot Tab A6 I'm a long-time Kindle Reader user. I am very happy to be able to use the Kindle Reader app on my S7 and Tan A 6 nook. It works with almost no problems, except the very occassional freeze-up. My wish: some way to find last book read that would remain constant between devices. It is so annoying to have to search the carousel for a book that you're reading on another device. The sync feature should pull it to the front throughout devices, but it doesn't.

Good app but syncing is very lazy Love this app but the syncing is very tardy. Often if I change books on my kindle I have to find the book manually on the app before it wakes up. That said I love having this on my phone!

Brian Rice

Be careful!! Once you enable one-click purchases, Jeff Bezos doesn't allow you to later disable them. Thus, accidental or overly impulsive purchases become too easy. Also, what if your device is stolen? Amazon needs to fix this now!

Chris Baylis

Audio upgrade on Android version I really dislike that when reading a book and trying to change the font or the brightness that the Audio upgrade button is so close and so easy to mistakenly press. Especially a problem at night when tired. Please change

Dawn Marie Davison Spranger

BAD UPDATE! Won't update! Says no memory, but I have more than enough on my device & SD card! Had to uninstall/ reinstall

Mike Murray

Device names Fix the issue where a Kindle update changes an already named device to some other sequential device name, totally annoying. An update should retain the device name.

Stephen Brooks

Device name always reverts! No matter what I name my device, it always reverts back to "Stephen's Android Device". Very annoying!

Maria A.

Customer misguidance. The books, that appear the be 'for free' to read and listen with my kindle unlimited subscription, turn out to be only 'for free' to read/more money asked for the audio. Purposeful misguidance of your customers!

Guido Kanschat

It does what it is supposed to do: let me read the content of my Kindle library. It also allows me to synchronize to the point, where I stopped reading on a different device. This feature could be improved, since it does not take into account the temporal order of book positions reached and may also suggest to jump back to a previous position. The reasons for the bad grade are two-fold: 1. The app is excessively large for what it does (161 MB on my Galaxy S7). This size is ridiculous for a text reader. 2. The app requests excessive permissions: how is my reading experience improved if Amazon knows who I am talking to on my phone? Why does it prevent the phone from sleeping? Why does it want to know which apps I am running? Why does it need access to accounts other than my Amazon account?

Paul Avallone

LG V20 Running Nougat One of my favorite app's. on my cell! So many things offered to just about please everyone's reading tastes! Runs flawlessly on my V20! Thanks Amazon for a really fine app.! ?

Arlene Keenan

Bad app It takes forever to open on my Galaxy tablet. I never buy kindle books anymore. I just look for the same title on nook. Most of the time, it won't open at all. You can keep updating, but IT DOESN'T HELP!

Sergei Shpigarev

Consumes so much ram, slows down my device. But design and functional are ok.

Tabitha Totten

Easy and Very User Friendly Love this app, because it is so easy to use. I am able to shop and have my books at the same time. I am an avid reader, I read every single day and I do not do difficult at all. It is so easy and very user friendly. In love with this app.

Laura Feyh

The ONLY app I will EVER use for e-reading! I REALLY wish however, that it offered continuous "Scroll" as an alternative to "Page Turn"! ? So, if it can be done...PLEASE DO add this option as SOON as POSSIBLE! Thank you so much!

DJ Breault

What's not to love?? I'm an avid reader and love being able to read anytime, anywhere... I'd be so bored without my Kindle app! Lol

Angela Cruze

a great app I love to read. This allows me to access books instantly and who doesn't love instant gratification. Finish a book in the middle of the night, no problem, on to book two in seconds.

Carol Ann

You have got to get better with testing updates. The instability of this app is getting ridiculous. It constantly freezes up.

Diana McLear Taylor

Love this up I really love this, except for the fact that it updates automatically then restarts my phone. It gets really annoying. I've thought of deleting it because of this.

Jan Aitchison

Frustrated I have a galaxy tab. After updating i have lost all the books i previously downloaded. I have bought a lot of books but can't read any of them. Extremely unhappy
