I never had any problems with this app until they started with the updates. Ever since then it crashed and nobody had access to it for awhile they have kept messing with it and trying to make it better. But every few months it just crashes and I just have to delete it and reinstall it. The major problem is that when this happens, I lose my InstaFreebies. I still have a lot of the InstaFreebie emails and Im going to see if I can put them in my iBooks because kindle just isnt trust worthy any more. Heres to ya Amazon! You cant make me dump my Free Books again! I just had to reinstall the Kindle App AGAIN. First, I go to turn a page of book, and it wont turn. Then I try to scroll down through my collections, and the App is frozen. But today I added some books and try as I might, I could not get them to download, even though my WiFi connection was working fine. In fact, I was at a doctors office, so I had tried to download these books using 2 different WiFi networks to no avail. But when I reinstalled the Kindle App, the books automatically downloaded. What is up with Amazon? Not only do they have an inadequate App, but they have a corner on the market for most of the decent books. So people like me are basically forced to used the Kindle App and just keep downloading it over and over again. If I had a chance, I would move every single book that means anything to me to my iBooks app. It never crashes. Amazon should take a page from Apples book. 01/14/17 My kindle app just started crashing repeatedly AGAIN. So here I am, reinstalling it AGAIN. What REALLY upsets me this time is that the book that Im reading is one of my InstaFreebies. And there is no way to save my place in it. There is absolutely no use in calling Amazon. I think that they hire Special Education Drop Outs. I was having problems with the website a few months ago and one of their "techs" told me that the problem was in my iPad and told me to go to APP STORE to clear my cookies. I hung up on him and he called me back 7 times. I finally had to threaten him with harassment charges if he didnt stop calling me. If Amazon didnt have a monopoly on books, I wouldnt even deal with them. 2/19/17 I cant even count the number of times I have reinstalled this app. But since almost all of my books are from Amazon, Im kind of chained to the kindle app. It takes forever to open, and is constantly crashing. 5/7/17 Kindle has made another "improvement" to this app, and its driving me crazy. I have major anxiety issues and the one thing that really calms me down (since I have a lot former library experience) is to reorganize my books. Well, with their latest update, the kindle people have added an totally unnecessary step and made my calming exercise very frustrating. All I can do is to beg these people to change this back to way it used to be. Are you listening Kindle? 7/15/17 Ive given the Kindle App one more star (to make it 3 stars out of 5) because of a recent change that theyve made. It seems that Amazon may have been listening to me and people like me on this one. Whenever I have delete and reinstall my Kindle App, which is still frequently, I dont lose my InstaFreebies anymore because Kindle has started turning them into documents which re-download with the new install! Then I just have to tap "Docs" to get them all back. I dont know if this is a good thing or not, though, as it seems that Amazon has settled for sub-standard work as far as their app goes. I am happy that I will no longer be losing my free books! 9/25/17 Just downgraded the Kindle App to 2 stars. This is the second time in as many days that I have had to delete the app and re download it. Both because it refused to open up the book that I was reading. This is ridiculous. I think I’m being very patient just giving a 2. But I also think that I MAY start buying books on KODO’s app.

Crashes every few months
At the end of each book, the app pushes a demand for a rating and/or a recommendation to a friend. The only way I’ve been able to get back to my library is to delete the app and re-install it. Maybe it’s me. I’m not an iPad fan, and this app just compounds my ire.
It’s a good app but can amazon please fix the crushing issue?
I have used it for 3 hours and it crushed 4 times during reading.
v 5.15 still crashes
but less often. Seems to have a problem with opening books from collections. /ios11, ipad pro 10.5 — App functionality would improve if there was a way of getting back to a Collection. Library, Cover, Beginning, Location — it’s not enough. There is little point of collections at this point, besides keeping the books sorted. But if you have lots of books, collections are imperative. And they make life easier if you want to focus on particular subject. Think real-life library. — To be precise: 4⭐️ because I can’t live without it & I love all its features and improvements done through the years, but there’s still no ‘back to collection’ which is a bummer. 1⭐️ because you have just updated it and it still crashes. And so you have three⭐️. If you care at all ?
Amazon supports white supremacy
Amazon is one of the few remaining major advertisers of notorious white supremacy website Breitbart. I’m deleting their apps.
