Much better

After the recent update, this is now beautiful to look at on Retina systems. Thanks!

not very smooth

The reading experience is very poor (even on a top of the range MacBook Pro retina).

Scrolling is very jerky and non-responsive. The desktop Kindle app is not very good compared to the tablet versions.
