Kindle reading application.
I was planning to take my Kindle when ,I was leaving India to visit US, in addition to I Pad for games and entertainment. But, I came to know this application and loaded it in my I Pad. Now I use this application in my I Pad for reading kindle books , when I am away from home, where I use kindle. I find this application as user friendly and having all major utilities of Kindle here.
Thanks for making this application available.
Bare bones but a blessing...
Good app. I can read again now, thanks to ebooks. The ability to zoom text to my comfort levels is a boon for visually disabled people. The use of the word 'library' here is a misnomer. Can't sort the books into my categories. They lie huddled in a big unsorted pile. Can't arrange them on separate shelves; there are no shelves. Can't share most books. Need to see lot more ebooks as compared to paperback.
Great app! But there are times when the App gets stuck on a particular page for quite a few minutes. It is only a minor annoyance but it is a nuisance when you want to move forward in a good novel! This is the only reason I have not given a five star rating.
