Can load free books without any problem, but it skips part of the text when going page to page. If I change font size, I can get to the missing text, but then have the same problem at the next page turn. I have Kindle on my iPhone which works perfectly on the same book. On the Arnova 10G2 tablet I have the missing text, which makes the app on the android tablet annoying and unreadable. Please fix this problem.

I loved this app until I updated it this morning. Now it doesn't work and keeps telling me to force close the app. Amazon ruined this app with this new update and now I am having to remove from my tablet. The update takes up way too much space as previous reviews state.

I used to love this app. I worked well, synced easily with my kindle, and was convenient when I found myself with a few unexpected minutes to read.The update that came out yesterday was supposed to just change the permissions. Instead it swelled the app to 25.75MB and it takes up way too much of the memory on my phone. I had to uninstall the app. Please fix,or make the old app available. I miss this app. It used to be 5 stars, now it's 1 only because I can't give it none.The app takes up mose space that Flashplayer and Maps combined.

If you have an older Android device, don't even bother trying the latest build. It won't work. Older versions used to run just great on my 2.2 tablet but the latest upgrade is just TOO big and, as others have pointed out, it cannot be moved to the SD card. Therefore it won't load, it won't install, I've attempted to reinstall it 3 times tonight, and I've got it to the point where it will at least open but it won't copy books down from the Archive/Library. I've spent what to me is a lot of money on e-books and now I can't use them. There's no excuse for this app to be this big. Amazon needs to stop trying to force-feed customers cr*p they don't want and keep the focus on what customers DO want: an app that actually works, and books the CONSUMER chooses. I'm absolutely livid. For God's sake, it's not THAT hard to make the legacy .apk available!!!

Was happy with this app until this last update. Now it's force closing every time I try to open it.

Just trying to download the kindle app for my Android Tablet.
This is worthless!
All the 'Kindle for Android' page gives is the Amazon AppStore.
Searching for Kindle on that gives a bunch of other apps which can be downloaded.
Beyond Frustration at this point.

Why doesn't the page titled Kindle for Android download that app!!!

I'm not going to install this update because of the excessive permissions it is asking for. It is NONE of Amazon's business which accounts exist on my device and which networks are connected. This is on principle, there is nothing to hide. I never install apps which ask for such invasive and unnecessary permissions. In my book the new Kindle app for Android v4.0.1.3 is a breach of my privacy. I'll keep using the old version, thank you.

I use it constantly and am not annoyed in general. I like the text resizing and background color control. Overall I wish it were more elegant though, with the option to turn on page turn effects like other readers have.

My main complaint is with how limited the store is. It can be very hard to get information on an author or which book a series starts with (if it's not right in the title). Seems like there should be more clickable, link-able information for each book. Why can't I just click the author's name, or the series name from the carousel instead of looking at the cover, then going to the store and searching the author? What's the point of having all this connectivity if it's not any smarter than a regular brick and mortar store?

Overall good quality app, but as I said, limited.

The newest update for Kindle takes up almost 30MB of memory space on my phone. Also, it cannot be moved off to my SD card. Additionally, permissions changed inexplicably. Uninstalling until these issues are resolved.
