Great to see the Kindle for Mac app finally getting attention

It is really nice to see the Kindle for Mac app finally getting attention with multiple highlighters now included. I would still like to see Collections synced between devices, and hopefully we will see this in the future.

Does not work

Please fix. It crashed before I upgraded to El Capitan. Now that I have El Capitan it still crashes. It opens up but as soon as it tries to sync for new books it crashes. It doesn’t matter how many times I try it still crashes. This update has been out for almost a month, why hasn’t anything been done! I use this app all the time, now I can’t use it at all. FIX IT!

Kindle for Mac now works again.

Thanks for fixing. I can open a book without it crashing.
