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 :/.

Great Reading App...however I love my Kindle App on my Nexus devices and iPad. Great sync keeps me on the right page no matter which device I pick up. The latest update however has introduced a very annoying quirk wherein the app insists that the book I am reading has a problem and that I need to delete it from my library and download it again. Ignoring this demand does allow you to reopen the book but this is becoming a serious pain in the posterior. While this happens in a random fashion, it averages about every third time you open the app. Please fix this. Thanks

It works, but... Why is it so rubbish? Sync problems, crashes, store is disjointed, device management changes don't stick and the books are a hotch-potch of bad editing and mistakes. Really needs some love and attention.
