Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Love Kindle BUT....
I read 99% of my books on my Kindle app on iPhone or iPad. The others I read in print or listen via audio books.
There is still one issue that is a huge problem for me, and many if you Google the issue.
For many books, you cannot find print replica page numbers!!!!!!!!
I belong to a small group where we read small sections of a book and then talk about them. For most of the books, I cannot ever find a real print page number. They are either kindle "locations" or kindle "Pages" which are not like the real print edition pages.
Very frustrating! And I have read other reviews where people are reading textbooks and have no access to real print edition page numbers so they cannot CITE their references! What the heck??!!! Come on Kindle. Make this a priority for all books.....
Would give Kindle app 5 stars except for this extremely annoying problem. I know SOME books allow you to toggle between pages and locations. That's great, but require it for ALL books,
or have the ability to toggle between the location and actual page numbers in the settings as something you can turn on or off!!
One too many updates
I don't like the update where the reading page shrinks up when I want to look something up on a different page than the current one. I appreciate the effort, it would be nice to access information on different pages quickly and efficiently but I don't think this gambit solved the problem. I find it extremely annoying and I wish I could return to a previous incarnation of the Kindle app. Now THERE would be an innovation. Why don't you make previous versions of the app available?! Please! I hate this one but I love Kindle and I especially love whispersync with Audible so I don't have the option to switch brands. My first E-reader was a Nook and I always liked the Nook app better. It is far more elegant. Why don't you check it out if you need new ideas?
Love this app
I switched to this awhile ago when my kindle died and I was in the middle of a good book. After loading on my iPad, the app pulled up the book right where I left off, as well as the other books I'd downloaded but hadn't read yet. It works pretty much like the original kindle and after a while I can hardly remember the differences. The only thing I would change is the ability to make it lighter. It's difficult to read outside in the day, but I think that's an iPad setting, not the app. If it were possible to do this through the app I'd be thrilled!
