Comments and Ratings for Kindle
More work needed (1.12.4)
1/5 By Tin tank
App is an absolute disaster. it keeps crashing and closing down. Haven’t been able to to read a single line. its useless and not up to the minimum standards expected of an App within the Apple world.
1/5 By oscarppp
This app is rubbish. Amazon have specifically designed it to maximise sales through the kindle store. Download Calibre (free app) instead. so much easier to convert eBook files to MOBI format and drag and drop to multiple devices.
1/5 By physics345
Why, in 2016 (almost 2017) does the Kindle app for the Macbook still have such a low resolution? Seems like this app is not maintained.
It should be better. (1.12.4)
3/5 By ellianejiva
I love the Kindle app on my iphone and always use it to read ebooks.
But Kindle for Mac need to be improved.
Not up-to-date (1.12.4)
2/5 By Go Hod
This version is far behind what is available by dowloading it diectly form Amazon. Not sure why they’ve allowed it to go out-of-date?
Not as good as iPad version (1.12.4)
3/5 By Techguy1357
I’ve still got the scrolling issue that makes you jump about 20 pages every time you bring the mouse near the app.
But now the text selection for highlighting has become inaccurate.
Don’t get me wrong, try out the new iPad app and you’ll be amazed - the new page flip is speed reading heaven!
Maybe amazon could get the iPad developers to work on OS X…...
3/5 By Outlawcatcher
I love using my kindle on my phone and mini iPad. I love the way my books sync quite seamlessly and that you can arrange them into collections. The fact that you cannot do this on the mac app is utterly frustrating and you would think it would be a simple matter to do this…OR maybe it’s not?? Anyway the fact that I cannot arrange my books into collections or that the app is not able to arrange and view them in categories or type with associated headings puts me off using the app altogether. With this said I cannot then review how user friendly it is really as the user has been put off using the app in the first place…such a shame!
Could do (a lot) better! (1.12.4)
3/5 By PadiPaws
This Mac version is a pale imitation of the iPad version, unfortunately. When syncing it suggests the date of last use elsewhere in American format, which is confusing for us UK users, and it does not seem to report the location very often, so when you go onto the other device it does not know where you actually were up to. There is no indication of time left in chapter (a feature which is tremendously useful). Perhaps these features do exist but I can't find where to implement them. It does seem to operate without crashing (so far).
Also one does not seem to have the ability to adjust line spacing, or to select the primary dictionary for word look-up.
Works o.k. on Mavericks (1.12.4)
3/5 By Kashkei
I moved to Yosemite, then El Capitan, and after a few weeks with El Cap, reinstalled Mavericks (OS 10.9.5). This Reader works fine on that, no loading or display problems. What I’d really like is a Kindle Reader for Linux...
Crashes constantly (1.12.4)
1/5 By Woody1rtw
From Amazon I expect a lot better constant crashing on IMAC
1/5 By met497
Half my books are missing! All my imported Collections are empty apart from one book which appears in nearly all of them.
Love it! Works great. (1.12.4)
5/5 By ZarkingFardwarks
Thanks for this wonderful app. It works as intended on my shiny new Mac Mini, in El Capitan. It’s great to have a read of my fave books while chopping away at vegetables, preparing dinner. Cheers!
Old Version (1.12.4)
2/5 By podgib
This is an ancient version of the app. Download it directly from the Amazon website - much better
Crashes on launch (1.12.4)
1/5 By g8bhc
Won’t open on iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013). OSX10.11.3.
Will not sync (1.12.4)
1/5 By wewhoserve
Do not buy any Kindle books from Amazon.
For the past few weeks my Kindle App will not snc with books that I have puchased from Amazon.
Amazon don’t appear interested once they have you money. They give me the impression that they don’t believe me.
Well my tried and trusted KOBO works just fine, so goodbye AmaCON.
Won’t even install! (1.12.4)
1/5 By Graham Lovis
Utterly useless as it won’t even install
1/5 By Sir Harry the Horse
This is an awful App - Poor functionality and some books just don’t display properly.
Scrolling needs sorting. It’s infuriating!! (1.12.4)
2/5 By Techguy1357
I’ve always been a fan of the Kindle app and have it on numerous (5) devices. Everything used to work ok, but the developers seem to have broken the scrolling on the Mac. I’m constantly scrolling 20+ pages at a time after moving the mouse onto another window. This happens even when you don’t use the scrolling gesture!!! Please sort it out Amazon!!
Doesn’t work. (1.12.4)
1/5 By Farrah Moore
It won’t even load and open on macbook yosemite. completely useless.
Poor Functionality (1.12.4)
2/5 By Realitysoft
I use Kindle on Ipad and iphone but on the MacBook it is pretty annoying, I cannot zoom easily and constantly jumping on pages - no more smooth scroll or am I missing somehting here? If it had that I would rate much higher and even with configuration of my MX mouse, which BTW, is superior for this type of scrolling and zoom options.
This has been a while since I used a MacBook version and it’s very annoying. I will not purchase Kindle only based books in future.
Cannot copy text (1.12.4)
2/5 By DJ21212121
I use my kindles extensively. I use it on my Phone, Mac book , Windows PC and White Paper.
The majority of books I read are NON Fiction and as study material I need to take notes.
I can now no longer copy portions of text to my personnel notes anymore as Amazon have removed the feature!!!!
I am extremely disappointed as its a great tool for my education.
Does the basics (1.12.4)
3/5 By purplelewiz
I'd like to see an option to increase line spacing as well as change font.
No page numbers (1.12.4)
1/5 By viljah
I bought a text book for school to read on the Kindle app, but the page numbers were taken of. Instead it had ‘sections’, of which there was some 19000. This might be obvious to seasoned Kindle-users, but for me it was a huge deal breaker. If there are no page numbers, then I can’t follow the reading lists the school sends out, and that pretty much makes the app useless for me.
2/5 By rmmclaren
For most books this works ok but as previously stated the functionality is limited to 1 page presentation. Worse is that some books are stated as “not compatible with this device” AND they are poorly visualised on the IOS Kindle app. By comparison the iBooks app has much better functionality and a cleaner interface.
zoom in/out (1.12.4)
3/5 By Rachy A
I cant zoom-in on diagrams and get a closer perspective or view of them. Zoom in/out are possible with the mobile versions so why not this one? It is a reader afterall and mac support multi-finger touch so why isnt there any zoom available? Sort it out so i can use the mac kindle more often.
No Longer Works (1.12.4)
1/5 By Jackson Elias
Crashes without launching on my Mac, OSX 10.6.8.. can't update the OS as I own an older Mac which struggles with newer OSX versions.
Sort this out.
HUGE problems after last update (1.12.3)
1/5 By PaulU2
I love Kindle. But after the latest update I cannot keep my Kindle app open for more than about 2 seconds. I have uninstalled and am trying to reinstall. (Update I have uninstalled and installed and it still crashes after a few seconds!!!!!) Other people seem to be having this problem but do not see a response from Amazon. Please AMazon deal with this quickly I have books on Kindle that I wish to read!!!!!!!!!
Please sort out the latest update11 (1.12.3)
1/5 By Davyrdevlin
Downloaded the latest ‘update’I can’t use this app at all. What a load of rubbish, please sort it out!
Still Broken (1.12.3)
1/5 By simoncoles
Over 2 weeks later and this broken version still hasn’t been updated. Does Amazon know or care?
1/5 By bell1999994
Crashes everytime within secondsof opening since new update on Mac. Deleting and reinstalling didn’t help. Alot of people seem to be having this problem but hasn’t been addressed.
