Great App but latest update breaks accessibility


I use this app everyday and it is mostly really great! Unfortunately the latest update has created a big problem for me. As a user with learning difficulties, I rely heavily on text to speech software in text based content consumption. I switched away from my actual kindle when books started coming out with the text to speech explicitly disabled.. (I can only imagine this is done to boost sales of more expensive and often abridged audible versions).

I now use the kindle iPhone app and just use the built in text to speech on the phone. This has worked brilliantly up till now. With the latest update the page turning has stopped working correctly.. when it gets to the end of a page it turns to the next page but skips straight to the last paragraph on that page soon turning to the next page and then rushing through the book skipping over most of the book 😖

I really hope this gets fixed soon...

Love it!


My partner bought me my kindle as a birthday present about 7 years ago because my library was getting out of control. As much as I enjoy the feel of reading a book now I have children I find less and less time to sit and read and so I do most of my reading in bed. My kindle allows me to read in bed without a lamp and without the worry of my bookmark mysteriously disappearing. I love that it works with the kindle app on my I phone so I can read wherever I am and sync my kindle when I’m ready to continue. My biggest complaint with my kindle is that Instead of reducing my library I just stockpile books on my kindle instead of in the house, I do intend to get through them all someday.

Good to see iPhone X support at last, but …


Great to see the Home Indicator Bar now disappears within a few seconds on v 6.4.
Would be great if the time moved to an ear and more of the lower part of the screen were used to avoid wasting screen real estate.

I am very pleased with the update to this app. However there is still quite an annoying waste of space on the screen. It would be great if the time, which I do find very useful, could be moved up to one of the ears, and also if the home bar could disappear within a second or two of Kindle opening, and for the text to come closer to the bottom of the screen. Other than that a very welcome upgrade.
