Too many limits of functionalty
I am a degree student, using kindle for study is a tiresome experience, it is clearly designed to avoid plagiarism, but the price that has had to be be paid by limiting the functionality renders it a simple page reader and little more. It you want to review highlights you need to go between your web browser and the kindle, which is pointless and awkward.
There are many complaints online about bugs and revisions. It all seems a bit like a historical application that needs to be be rebuilt from the roots up, hopefully someone will bring out a rival, this one is very poor.
kindle for mac desk top
I bought this book as my Husband is diabetic.
I have looked at the recipes and they are nice.
I have had no trouble with the app so far.
Since installing the latest uprade yesterday on the MacBook Pro it crashes every time upon launch. Tried uninstalling and re-installing...still doesn't work. Very, very disappointing. Used to be a great asset on the laptop.
