Great app to synchronise with my kindle so when I'm away from home and have a few minutes to myself, I can continue reading my book. I'm really disappointed though to find I had to download Amazon Apps first before I could get the Kindle App..............I'm sure that I wont have a lot of need of the Amazon Apps and felt I was held to ransom to enable my access to the Kindle App. If there had been another way, I would not have down loaded the Amazon Apps. I hate feeling that I have been 'conned' into something I dont want in order to get something I want.

I had difficulty syncing my Kindle with my Tablet. I couldn't download my books and when I bought an e book, it appeared on my Tablet but not on my Kindle. The Amazon site was not clear enough in trouble shooting. I followed instructions, but could not rectify the problem

Kindle is amazing. I was resistant to reading anything other than real books but thanks to kindle i can buy more books for half the price, plus they are all on my phone so that i have them wherever i go, and it takes up less space in my bag!

I just wish I could read all my Kindle Library in a format that automatically reduces screen brightness and saves power as soon as it opens! - Whilst my new Huawei P8 (Very large screen and fast Octa-Core CPU and 3GB RAM...) can do this through my slow and complex, almost un-memorable series of steps and changes to phone settings, it didn't configure the App automatically to do so. Otherwise it would be ideal... This may be a hardware issue, but some set-up automation should be possible in theory...?

The Kindle App for android tablets works well enough, in an uninspired way. It allows you - as one would expect - to synch your Tablet to your Kindle account and read Kindle eBooks. Wonders will never cease. There's functionality that allows you to dim the screen for reading in the dark and you can play with the font size, screen colour and word density to suit your personal preferences. The grid view shows the front cover of all of your books, and you can list books in various orders (author, uploaded, title). There's also a linear list option or a carousel view that allows you to rotate through the most recently uploaded books. All well and good.

It surprises me, however, that the app is so "vanilla". In fact it's even less functional than the Kindle itself in that there's no way (at the time of writing) of organising your library. The Kindle is pretty limited in this respect and only allows one level in the folder structure, but the Kindle Android App is even less clever - there are no folders at all! Why, for goodness sake? It can't be hard to do. Using Kindle on a tablet ought to offer other opportunities - I dunno, like copying exerpts to the tablet clipboard, or voice recorder notes or stuff - but the app is, at heart, a simple eReader.

Four stars for the basics, but losing a star for the lack of folders.

When I downloaded this from Amazon it would not work, hence a one star review.

Things are better now, I successfully downloaded from the Google Store.
Three stars because;
it did not install correctly from Amazon;
for technical books it could be improved by providing multi-coloured bookmarks to code different types of entry.

I have had trouble with this app, so many times I have lost count causing me to have to uninstall and re-install it. When I try to access this app it shuts down my tablet. I have tried everything to fix the problem but so far nothing works.
