Why must it see my phone call log, or see the other applications that are running? It worked fine before these updates, so why are they needed now? I uninstalled from my phone until they change that tactic.

I wish i could revert right now my kindle app to its previous upgrade on my tablet. The new one entered and it basically has rendered the app non functional. Doesn't sync with my kindle phone app, keeps crashing, it is that bad.

I expect it to be fixed ASAP - because it has made the reading experience a nightmare on my tablet.

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.

Last update ruined it, it wasn't bad before that. I have a lot of personal stories and docs I convert to MOBI and have in my Kindle reader and it used to work fine but now everything shows up as unknown and i have to unauthorize my device and then reauthorize it to get them to show up properly. It would also be nice if you could give the Kindle the ability to read subfolders within the Kindle directory so that those of us with a lot of books and documents and who like to keep things organized can organize them how we want on our device.

Terrible. When trying to download app, why can't you have a "Download" button instead of a we'll send it to you space that doesn't work. Worst experience yet,

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.
