Kindle for Windows 8 and 8.1

Kindle

Read Kindle books on a beautiful, easy-to-use Windows 8 application. You’ll have access to over 1 million* books in the Kindle Store, including best sellers and new releases. Amazon’s Whispersync technology automatically syncs your furthest page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across all your devices that have the Kindle app installed and across any Kindle device. That means you can start reading on one device and pick up where you left off on another device.

Features:

  • Buy once, read everywhere. Sign in with an Amazon account, and sync Kindle books across all your devices that have the Kindle app installed across any Kindle device.
  • Search inside the book to find a topic, character, or section you want to visit.
  • Pin Kindle books from your Kindle library to the Windows Start screen for instant access to your favorites.
  • Start reading in seconds. Your Kindle book downloads while you read.
  • Shop the Kindle Store for over 1 million* Kindle books, including new releases and best sellers.
  • Customize your reading experience by choosing the background color, font size, and number of reading columns.
  • Highlight, take notes, and add bookmarks in any book. Look up word definitions and listen to how they are pronounced.
  • Selection and price of Kindle books in the Kindle Store vary by country.

I see no option for organizing books into categories I create ("Collections"). I was accustomed to this feature on my LG tablet, but the Kindle app installed on my Toshiba Encore 2 lacks the "Collections" option. This makes the app useless to me.

I use the kindle reader on smartphones, notebooks and slates. It is equally legible, navigable amd delightful on all. I read in English, French, Spanish, Latin amd (rarely) Greek. I read indoors in poorly lit rooms at night, on the beaches in harshest light, even--may God have mercy on my soul--sometimes in steamy bathrooms or moving cars. The Kindle is the first great advance over the codex. BTW, I love books.

Amazon Kindle reader for Win8.* is pretty primitive. It has extremely limited options for configuring reading view (basically can only change font size and margins), no options for book-like backgrounds or other common capabilities. Kindle for Win8.* also does not even support standard gestures - e.g. you cannot change font size by manual zooming, and cannot even flip pages with a flick gesture - which is ridiculous for a book reader. The only good thing about this piece of software is that it can still download your book from Amazon and give you basic reading capabilities. Frankly speaking I found reading books via standard WEB browser more convenient and flexible than using Amazon Kindle app. All-up it appears to be done at the quality level of a 3-week intern project or something like that. Which is really a shame for Amazon, given how much Windows laptops and convertible devices are out there.

I suddenly started getting the message "The application encountered an unexpected error. Please restart the application. [108]" Even if I uninstall and reinstall, it doesn't help.
