In response to very recent complaints


I saw a review from Aaron Storms that was written a few days ago about the recent problems after updating the app. I ran into what I think was the same problem and was becoming frustrated. I decided to try something which seems to have fixed my problem, or at least for the moment. I double tapped my home button to bring up the running apps to switch between them and swiped up on the Kindle box to close the program, then opened the app again and finally I was able to get the missing and broken functionality to come up and work.

Hopefully others can try and have it help out. It is a shame that the upgrade didn't "just work" like Apple products and content should, but at least this workaround helped me out for now.

And since I am going to have to leave a star rating in order to submit my review I will finish by justifying it that I find it perplexing that all the functionality isn't in the Apple app like not being able to purchase books. Now that I'm thinking about it I don't think the ability to even save a potential interesting book off to a Wish List is available. Who knows what else is missing.

Love using this app on my iPad


I have gradually been transitioning from reading almost solely in iBooks to more and more reading in the kindle app. Part of the reason is the advantage and character nave I ended of seamlessly switching from audible to reading. Part of the reason is the seamless shift between devices (iPad to iPhone to iPad Pro). Another reason is my enjoyment of my kindle unlimited plan.

There are drawbacks. I like the formatting in iBooks better and the fact that there is an actual page count as opposed to “location.” I don’t even understand what “location” means! I don’t love the new update in kindle as I liked the layout of my library in the last version better. Going smaller is never better and I see it as wasted space on the screen. While I like the integration with Goodreads to post reviews in two places at the same time all of a sudden I get an error message every time that the review submission is not working. This is a HUGE drawback for me as that is one of the feature I really like above iBooks.

Pros: integration with Goodreads, when it was working. Use of kindle unlimited, integration with audible.

Will never read a paper book again


I'm an avid reader and to have all the books I want on hand wherever I go is awesome! Purchasing books is such a simple process and there is an infinite amount of books for any income level. Kindle unlimited is also an excellent program, especially when you can read and listen on Audible for free. There are only two improvements that I wish were made. Once I read a book and delete it from my device I really wish it would have a symbol on the cover in my library that its been read. I know it shows new with a check mark when not read but if I missed downloading a book I assume I read it since it's not marked. And the other thing is no matter how long ago or recently I've borrowed a book from KU i wish it would let me know that when I'm shopping for books like it lets me know when I purchased a book, which is a great thing btw. Overall I would give the kindle and the app 10 stars if I could.
