No more batch selection? 2/5
By R Nik
After the update you can no longer choose multiple titles at once to assign to a collection. Now you have to do one title at a time. Why would you get rid of such a practical, useful function? Shouldn't the goal of updating the app be to make it more, rather than less, user friendly?
My lifeline 5/5
As I near 70 years in this earth. I find that I have a heart condition that is untreatable. So my life is now of a sedentary nature. But--- not so --- for I have my online books that transport me daily to places and adventures unending.
Depending upon the day it may be that I read a book to offer spiritual guidance or a history of the past and those who lived through it. A good mystery can be the order for a great day and of course I enjoy regency love stories. The selections are endless and my life is filled with much happiness through my books.
I Love Kindle! 4/5
I've been kindle reader for years. It's awesome! I am glad there is kindle, very convenient to read anywhere any time. I only give 4 stars because it would be nice if they do something about the purchasing system. I mean I can purchase book straight away after they show the book I might like at the end of the book I just read in just one click without going to another browser to amazon.com then search the title of the book
Love kindle 5/5
By Qwerty words 123
So easy to have my "books" with me everywhere! Saves my place on all my apps.
This is my fav 5/5
By I love double threat
You can lock it so it doesn't turn and has all my favorite books and all of them transferred from my kindle with ease
Kindle changed my life!!!! 5/5
I love to read, always have, always will. Kindles have changed my book life!
My friends and I would share book suggestions and the great thing is, it seems like Kindles have them all!
Before I had my kindle, I would go to the library to find that they didn't have it, or there was a 5 week waiting list. I would either buy it from a store (which is really expensive) or wait a couple days to have it ordered.
I love my kindle because I can get any book I want within a minute, and you save money!
There is also family sharing which is great because my mom and I can read books at the same time!
If you don't have the app Kindle or an actual Kindle, get it!🤗
Amazon kindle 5/5
Fantastic way to read a book, can change font size, come back to where you left off, no need to carry a heavy hard cover, back lighted makes it easy on the eyes. Can't go wrong!!!
Very handy 5/5
Nice to have a large library all in one place and across multiple devices. I use this every week, many times a week for my own books and those borrowed from libraries. It's indispensable!
By Cindy Lou 47
By far my favorite app. This and audible are my entertainment on the go😍🙏🏼
Love my kindle 5/5
Only way I read books anymore. Kindle app on my iPhone updates with my kindle fire so no matter device I use the other knows where I stopped.
A real lifesaver 5/5
Being a voracious reader and mildly vision impaired, I really appreciate the Kindle for its granular control,cross-device functionality, The plethora of rich features and diverse sources from where I obtain my reading materials. Every app should work so well...
Love my Kindle 5/5
I love that I have access to hundreds of books any time I want. This app is great.
By Desert trail runner
Awesome, books at your fingertips without the bulk.
Update is killing battery life 1/5
Battery usage has skyrocketed since the update. 😞
Great app 5/5
I love the ease of reading on my iPhone!
Simply perfect 5/5
It started its existence less stellar than the iBook but in a short time it improved by adding features that help when using book to teach and friendly for readers. Keep up the good work!
Update kills battery life 2/5
By Beloved Lake
Your latest update has made it so that reading for one hour drains over 50% of my cell battery. Please fix this issue.
Absolutely my favorite reading app!! 4/5
Update: newest release seems to not auto-sync my books and on the rare occasion it does auto-sync bookmarks and book location - it's REALLY SLOW (like 1-2 minutes after I open the app). Otherwise it's. Still my favorite. Hope they fix this bug soon!!
Love the kindle app! It's definitely my favorite for reading on my iPhone and iPad. Also wonderful because it can be read on any platform. It has some very nice customization features and just seems to always work properly and sync perfectly and immediately! I have not yet found a book cheaper from one of the other online retailers. And I can import my own books and PDF files to read. Fabulous job Amazon!
Useful App! 5/5
The Kindle app can be used on your cell phone or tablet, mac or pc which makes it very adaptable, useful and easy to have a portable library to read anytime, anywhere. Kindle tracks the page you were on and asks you if you want to continue with that page when switching devices. Underlining passages in various colors is easy. Academics might like more features for research. Kindle is improving this app continually along with it's readers.
I like it
The app does not correctly download purchased contact. The help desk provides laughable support, problem for me goes unsolved. They fish for answers, I complied with all and all failed. I can't even finish the book I started on all 3 of my iOS devices!
My only love....my kindle!,
The app works! 4/5
I haven't had any difficulty with the app.
Kindle app 4/5
By Amizon customer
I would love to give a five star rating, but I think the app could be improved by adding more ways to categorize the books that are already owned. One possibility is by genre. I also have some problems with the app closing while I'm reading it or not being able to turn the page. I am unsure how this could be resolved (as I am not a technologically inclined person). This being said there are also a lot of good things this app has and though there are some issues I would recommend this to those who are inclined to read either a lot or a little.
Kindle iPhone App Rocks the Universe 5/5
It's weird that I said that the kindle app "rocks the universe", because I never talk like that. It's really weird, though, because that's how I really feel! I've always been a reader lugging 2-3 books around at all times. When I got married, my husband always complained when I turned on the light at night to read. With the kindle iPhone app, I have all books at my disposal and they're no heavier or bulkier than my phone! At night, when I want to read, the app lets me do it without waking my husband. There are more great things about it than those, but this review is long enough. Keep doing what you're doing Kindle - it has changed my life.
Great reading app! 5/5
I love this app and use it all of the time.
App ignores notification settings 1/5
I'm giving this one star because this app consistently ignores notification settings both internally and through Apple's official settings. I have both set to NO, but I still get an annoying bell with bright red numbers popping up to let me know I have unread and very much unwanted so-called important messages from Amazon. This clearly violates Apple's agreements. Amazon, get with the program! If I opt-out of notifications, then that should be honored!
Mixed bag 4/5
The latest release brings good and bad changes.
Good: really love the new page skimming feature because it makes it a lot easier to go back and find content in a book. I also appreciate the improved integration with Goodreads.
Bad: The new bold font isn't pleasant to read. Don't like how they removed the ability to send feedback from the app-or it's in a different place and I can't find it. Seems like the Kindle team would want to engage more with customers, not less.
Great App 5/5
Easy way to read a ton of books
Turn off notifications, they spam you with ads. 1/5
No thanks. Not interested in ads cluttering my notifications. You guys know better.
Easy to use, have to leave app to buy more books 4/5
If I could one-click purchase books in the app without having to go to amazon.com, I'd give this five stars. This is one of my must-have, most-used apps, and I love it.
Great app 5/5
Am very happy I have this app. Makes reading books really fun.
auto sorting series of books. a cleaner, brighter collections layout and overall aesthetic (black or white options). less clutter on face of book (%). ability to archive books and NOT see them in the cloud but in a separate archive section. add scrolling option while reading.
Many other book apps already offer things like auto sorting and the like- at least having them as options would make the experience perfect.
Crashes my Ipad 2/5
Since latest update my Ipad crashes consistently! I also wish they would let borrowed book from the library be returned through the app and not have to sign into Amazon. All the notices from the library are stored on the device taking up space and resources and have to be deleted one by one! Still cant do notes while looking at book text!
Kindle review 4/5
By mander dj
I use the Kindle app on my iPad daily, far more frequently than my former favorite, iBooks.
2 complaints: I cannot organize my Kindle library by moving the book covers around. I like my author series in chronological order. It is difficult to reread a series when I have to leave the app to google book order. Also, I would be much better able to PURCHASE books from Amazon if I didn't have to go to the Kindle store to do so. I can't believe you guys make it hard for us to spend money. You deny us the joy of immediate gratification, and yourselves the benefits of the impulse -buy.
Mostly happy with Kindle more reliable than Nook 4/5
Nice to have so many thousands of books at my fingertips at a moments notice. Only problem at this point is having to go into a separate application in order to get new books. Seems an unnecessary step.
Needs a couple of additions 4/5
By Ash dune
I agree with a couple of others and wish I could buy through the app. I also wish I could return Kindle Unlimited books via the app. Other than that I do so love it!
Better before 3/5
I loved it when I could buy books right from the kindle app. Now I go to buy books through it and I can only download a sample 😒 Was much more convenient when I could just purchase and read all from the same app
Review for May 2016 4/5
My last review was in April 2016 with four out of five stars. While my star rating hasn't changed, because really, what is the point of finding books I want to read through any of the apps if I cannot purchase them? I am loving the fact that I can download Kindle Unlimited books from the kindle app.
Allowing the option to purchase though the app 3/5
Would love to give this 5 stars. But as previously stated in past reviews, you don't get the option of purchasing an ebook though the app. Wish they'd change that. Hate having to go to the amazon website to purchase it.
I love Kindle for iPhone! 5/5
I have gotten so spoiled with Kindle for iPhone, that I get irritated when I have to read a REAL book. Haha Being able to read in the dark, on my side has saved me from many a boring night.
Amazing app ! 4/5
By Mr steven rào !
AMAZING app❤️ ! But can we get more option for background page color? More on the warm side. Sepia doesn't really look good, a slider to adjust the color would we appreciated.
When I don't have my kindle... 5/5
...I use the Kindle app on my iPad. All my books are shared seamlessly between all my devices. New purchases show up on my iPad Kindle app as well as my Kindle.
I can switch easily between listening and reading and back, with both my own purchases and the Kindle Unlimited books that offer companion audio.
It's a great app and I love making notes and highlighting text. Many of the people in my book group now bring their iPads to meetings instead of the physical book.
Kindle is excellent. 5/5
I enjoy kindle easy to read and use. The syncing across products does an excellent job. I would recommend it to any reader.
Make 👏🏾this👏🏾app👏🏾split👏🏾screen👏🏾compatible👏🏾 2/5
I would appreciate it bc I'm in law school and I'd prefer an easier way to brief my cases and take notes while looking directly at the text.
It would be perfect. It would be seamless. Please get it done.
Love the kindle app 5/5
By Dee LOL
Love this app. It's all I use to read.
No vertical scrolling... crap reading experience 1/5
I would love to just rest my phone or ipad on my chest and comfortably read by scrolling upwards. Instead, I'm forced to hold my arm in the air as I get close to the bottom of the page, or strain my eyes to see the bottom of my phone. I wish amazon would listen to its users.
Love at first sight 5/5
By Yogis mom
I love being able to take my books with me where ever I go. The speed at which the books down loads is extremely fast. I have never had a problem. They even tell me when I have purchased a book before, so I do not buy it again!!
My favorite reader 4/5
By BA Bob
I have several different readers and Kindle is my favorite. It can be easily customized. I would like to be able to "group" books in my library because I often read series and it's easier to see the collection. I would also like page numbers. These two short comings kept my rating from being a 5 star. It would be a simple matter of programming. However, it's still a great reader and it's my favorite.
