Customer Reviews


Apologies for the harsh review, but it’s 2017 and your app still does not support a basic SPLIT SCREEN feature. Are y’all even reading these reviews? Both the ipad + computer versions of Kindle are basically the only applications that do not support a SIMPLE split screen feature. This makes it extremely difficult to take notes for school… Take a scroll through your reviews, these comments have been ongoing for the past few years, yet nothing has changed. So much $$$ wasted on beautiful books for a mediocre-at-best application. Note to self, don’t buy any more textbooks from Amazon/Kindle…. I’m done with y’all….

excellent performance.

I am amazed at the negative reviews because I found none of the glitches others complain about. All features work very well. Books are easy to find, easy to read, easy to highlight and annotate.

Highlighting often fails

It’s very difficult to highlight a certain sentense or a paragrah (esp. for Japanese & Chinese books). After I’ve seleted the content, the highlighting pop-up often fail to appear, which makes it impossible to highlight what I want.
