User reviews of Amazon Kindle
20/8/2013. Works great. But at 23MB its a tad bloated. Mainly use this app on my 7 inch tablet. 4 or 5inch screen really is too small to read ebooks on imho :/.

No memory of where I leave off while on lock screen I really find it annoying that if I pause my listening of the read-aloud content from the lock screen it does not save my ending place, but reverts to the same starting point as my previous session. I like whispersync, but this is really annoying. The rest of the app is OK, if more buggy than I am used to. What gives, Amazon? This app should be in your wheelhouse!
