Fantastic Mobil App 5/5
I love this app. I use it on my iPad mini - it fits perfect in any purse so I can take it with me and have something to read wherever I go.
App never worked 1/5
Had years of problem free transactions until I switched to the app. Big mistake. It's gone.
Great app, but is missing a full split screen option 3/5
By Fin Tokes
I would like there to be a full split screen option so that it is easier to take notes when reading a textbook. Otherwise, the app is good.
Great addition to my Reading 5/5
I have used this app from the moment it became available. Follows me around the world with my IPad.
Could not travel without it
Wish the Sync worked. 3/5
By Mm Sidhe
Does not sync across devices. An annoyance.
Kindle app review:
Table of content on the left swipe / edge of the screen does not remember position of the last scroll.
Using any action extension from the share sheet is automatically highlighting the text selection on the iPad pro
Can't split view on the iPad pro.
Selecting only one words ones not bring up the share sheet. Only when selecting two or more words does the share sheet menu show up
Where did my clock go?? 5/5
I loved the clock in the upper left hand corner... where did it go??? How do I get it back??
Cannot even log in 1/5

Ergo one star.
Power hog 3/5
The app works pretty well overall, BUT it's a huge drain on your battery. After reading for an hour and a half my battery will go from 100% to 40%. (iPhone 6) Tried it on my wife's brand new iPhone 7 and had the same result.
By far one of the buggiest, worst apps out there for an iPhone. Books won't sync or deliver, and when they do, navigation in the book is such a pain and there isn't a way to zoom without completely changing the font size of everything. This app gave me cancer.
In app advertisements forced on users. 2/5
Now you have ads-which you are FORCED to look at- in this app.
Amazon is so greedy it's pathetic.
I use this app every day 4/5
I have used this app on my iPad for years and years...I am on my third iPad and Kindle has always been my favorite reading app and I am thankful to have it. My biggest problem is that I can never trust the updates to work right the first time. There have been too many times when the update makes the app hard to use for days or weeks until the next update, hopefully, fixes the issue without introducing new problems. Now I wait for weeks and check app reviews before I update my device.
Can do better... 1/5
By C'mon yo....really?
No chapter section with the books...also whenever I go to my home screen and open up the app again, the screen goes white and I have to restart the app...
Necessary for readers 5/5
Ok, so Kindle is one of those apps that you kinda HAVE to get if you are a reader. It's a good, solid app that does what you need. It works seamlessly across all of your devices and allows your content to be accessible either on or offline.
My wife and I share an account so we can read books together.
Will not let me access next book I own. 1/5
Shows library briefly then immediately to book I just finished. No exit except to close app. Does the same thing when reopening app
I really like this app it allows you to have multiple books and keeps your page marked and if you have it on other devices it will track to them as well.
Hard to use 1/5
Confusing and hard to use. Slow on wifi
The best deal out there 5/5
I use Amazon Reader each month to read free books and magazines as a benefit of Amazon Prime. It isn't go to reader.
Tarzan series 4/5
Wonderful reread of the Tarzan Series. I read these many years ago when I was in my teens. Now that I have reread them they are just as well written. I am amazed at his descriptive writing. I had hardly appreciated the technical aspects of his writing before but instead concentrated on the sheer adventures of the protagonists. Now I appreciate the craft of the stories, the plot and characters. Of course he has the racism of his generation but we have to accept that was the norm at the time and not worry about revisionist history. The stories are fun.
Split screen PLEASE 1/5
Please implement split screen from ios9/10! As of 12/18 this hasn't been implemented... All other major apps have.
All my books in one place. Easy access, and kids can't lose my bookmarks.
With all the brilliance of Amazon 1/5
...and they can't keep the dictionary downloaded on your device between their updates of the app. When you try to download the dictionary, you get errors but only after it wastes your bandwidth trying the download the entire dictionary file.
Highlights and bookmarks 4/5
By Don 47
When you demo a book it's quite frustrating you lose all your notes when you decide to download the full copy.
Also could we get the scroll feature like iBooks, helps me read faster (and much more fluent experience).. I love the app and those 2 things are necessity!
I need the sync from mac to iPhone to be accurate. It jumps back pages because it's a big difference in page size from phone to computer to iPad
Great app but vertical scrolling is not a feature 3/5
I am an amazon prime member and paying $10/month for unlimited books is a very appealing deal for me. I was so excited when I downloaded the app. There are some great features but I found out that they don't support vertical scrolling like iBooks does, which is my preferred reading style. It's easier for me to digest information quickly this way especially when reading from my mobile device during my commute. It might just be a deal breaker for me.
Newest Update Broke Sync Function 1/5
The newest Kindle update disabled the sync function in my iPhone and iPad. I have to manually go to the settings to sync. Please fix ASAP!!
Best E-Reader 5/5
By Anna Clar
Use it all the time. Can easily switch devices and pick up on the same page. Cool features.
You can't do split screen apps 3/5
I've been with kindle for years. I've recently bought an iPad Pro that has many amazing features, including the ability to run two apps side by side. The kindle app however does not support it. Having a textbook open while taking notes with your favorite note taking app at the same time is something I, and I'm sure many others, were looking forward to. Guess that will be the last textbook purchased through Amazon.(Split screen works with iBooks)
Great app, but now a bug? 3/5
Usually a five star app, IMO, but ever since the iOS 10.3.1 update, fonts reverted to a monospaced font, and although alternative fonts can be accessed and selected, they are not applied. I think it's a new bug, as it happened simultaneously on my iPhone and iPad after the iOS update.
Really like this app!! 5/5
I really enjoy the Kindle app.
Could be great 3/5
Needs split view and day/night detection. It's view customization is great, but should have that light sensing switch option.
Amazing 💘 5/5
I think this app is great, because you get to read any book you want. And it's great for airplane trips. And road trips. And just whenever you want to read. I do think it's quite rediculous that you have to pay for stories but it's still great. And you can teach your children how to read too if you have a divice but can't afford books
Yours truly- Jillian Bowersox
Love how accessible it is no matter what platform 5/5
where is Korean dictionary???!!!! 3/5
you guy did not include Korean dictionary????!!!!!!
Game of thrones #5 5/5
I have this book on my other iPad. I had it here also, but it disappeared. How can I get it back onto this iPad?
Text to Speech doesn't work properly. 1/5
You can read it but if you want it to read to you while your driving it is like pulling teeth to open up the read out loud function. It is supposed to be a two finger swipe. Once you do your two finger swipe it comes up and crashes instantly.
Kindle will hopefully fix this issue.
I have an iPhone 6plus.
No Split View makes a bad app 1/5
Can't put Safari and the Kindle app side by side, so I'm moving to iBooks.
kindle and audible sync not working 1/5
i have been having an issue with the audio book syncing with the kindle app recently
*book samples* 1/5
Just let me buy it! I have a book, want to buy the kindle version but it will only allow me to download a sample. I've not purchased several books now just because of their stupid app. Fix it
Please add split view 3/5
By Coded Games
Every app should support it. I constantly use split view and any apps that don't support it are basically useless to me.
Can't turn off in-app notifications 1/5
Latest update added a bell symbol that Amazon uses to force notifications about books and authors that have no connection to what I've read. Give us a way to turn it off please!!
I love it, you should too! 5/5
Deliver to multiple devices- read on and offline... increase font (great at bedtime without glasses), bookmark, highlight.... amazing app!
Horrible App 1/5
I don't really feel like I know where I am at any point when using the Kindle app.
iPad crashes 2/5
By Gonzilaa da thrilla
Nearly all times I open my iPad the app crashes.
Deliver Amazon book to my macbook! 1/5
OMG, I wanted to deliver my e-textbook to my macbook not Iphone or Ipad. How can I do it?
Where did the clock go! 1/5
I love your app and use it daily. And your recent addition of adding a clock in the top-left corner was fabulous! WHY did you take it away 😕
Always devoted to my Kindle 5/5
I've used Kindle since they were first introduced. I guess I never wrote a review before because it goes without saying..........Kindles R The Best
No Way to Disable In-App Notifications (Bell Symbol) 1/5
The latest update includes a bell symbol in the upper left hand corner of the app. Even with all notifications completely disabled in the iPhone settings, the bell icon still delivers notifications (a little red round icon with a number in it).
I have found no way to disable these completely irrelevant and useless notifications; ZERO stars for forcing unwanted content on paying customers.
Read anywhere but not buy 4/5
I love that I can read anywhere. I HATE that I can't buy books through the kindle app OR the Amazon app. WHY?!?
Love it when it works 3/5
By m va
The most deleted and reinstalled app I have on my phone (and that doesn't even fix my problem most of the time). Love being able to switch between my phone to my Kindle without losing my place. Hate it when it won't sync (either the book itself or my entire library) and tells me I have no internet connection when I clearly do.
