I do enjoy using The Kindle library, app in my reading. Not just light stories but cryptic serious and educational reading. I have been reading an author who has a large vocabulary and several languages in his writing. I don’t have to put the reading down to get the meaning of new words or phrases. It also allows me to understand his new words. New words ? Yes he uses words not in a standard dictionary but words, thoughts combined in different ways. If a word is not in the given dictionary or Wiki or a foreign word (phrase) and its pronunciation. I do love the author even more as I can begin to understand his reasons for expressing himself in and through a writing. So many authors have strange ways of human expression. I have also been reading a little history about the reasoning behind the forming of our government. These people come to life for me with the Kindle library app.
If you are looking for suggestions mine would be, a larger dictionary and other ways of quickly reviewing a word or phrase. More of the same and more books available. Possibly through a method of converting other formats of text coding, from pdf to many others. Maybe just one at a time as others try to compete with you in this. An app close to Calabria with all improved features you presently have and can improve.

My Favorite Reading App

MarciaG

I love the Kindle app. I am an avid reader, and have three reading apps. I have iBooks and the Barnes and Noble app called Nook along with Kindle. Of the three apps, I find I like the Kindle app the best because it is the most intuitive. It is the easiest to annotate i.e., highlighting, entering notations (which I frequently do when I look up the definition of a word I’m unfamiliar with), and determining where you are in the book or how much more time it will take to finish a chapter. The new feature of zooming out and flipping through pages is really helpful too as well as the ability to tap the icon that will return you to your previous location.

The three things I would consider improving are: 1) when I’m reading with the screen brightness turned down because I’m reading in the dark, when I look up a definition of a word, the print is so small and dim that I can’t see it. I then have to get out of the definition, increase the brightness, and go back and highlight the word and look up the definition again; 2) sometimes the dictionary isn’t available and when I am told to download it, it won’t download, and 3) I really wish it had more colors available for highlighting the text.

LOVE my Kindle!!! BUT...last upgrade for it changed it!

The last upgrade was again, a group of many improvements which will hopefully improve many users experience with the app. AND, I do realize that mine problem with it is going to be very minute to most. Please do bear with me. I've tried support, but they suggested I try through review.

I am VERY hearing impaired! I've been this way my entire life. I've learned to adjust, but this one is a pain! At this point of life, I have HUGE problems hearing typical female voices, because they are typically in the treble range. I only hear base. I'm not the only, since this is typical for hearing loss, so there are more "baby boomers" on the way, who will also have this happening to them.

So....what's the deal here, you ask?! Up until this last upgrade, the voice for "translation" of dictionary words has been male. A day doesn't go by that I don't look up at least two to five words. I LOVE learning new or odd vocabulary words, AND how they are pronounced. Now, even if I were to stand on my head, I cannot hear the voice you're using. Is there ANY help here for my problem?
