Great just not Fantastic This is a great app. I am a commercial driver and if it wasn't for this app I would have books everywhere in my truck. Just disappointed that I can not view or return my Kindle unlimited books from the app. I use to be able to do this with the app.

Upping the rating as it has improved much since I last used it uninstalled it in disgust. You can do more with this app than you can with the Kindle e-ink reader. Even if you have a Kindle e-reader, this app is a must, as you cannot see colour pictures/diagrams in the e-reader. Comics would also be useless for reading in the e-reader. Main improvement is that now it doesn't run permanently in the background. There is still a lot of scope for other improvements. Its inability to dim the screen below what the stock setting lets you do, is a big con. Hurts my eyes, esp. at night. Google Play Books lets you do this. Moon reader lets you do this. And I'm sure a lot of other readers do. The app is rather heavy and sluggish, and that's another area that is crying for improvement. No text-to-speech function is also a big con. Lastly, the licencing policy where you never own anything that you "buy" (and the DRM), is a significant deterrent to :buying" from their store.
