Best Windows 8 Apps
28 August 2016
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.

the kindle I had downloaded before stopped working when I tried to open it it would tell me that the application had experienced an error, I unstalled it and installed it again and it says its installed but its not what can I do. I had windows 8 and Microsoft downloaded windows 8.1. it had cloud on it

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.

Seriously don't offer a free trial that breaks the program.

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

I can't sign in no matter how many times I put my e-mail address and password in. I know its correct because I can sign in to my amazon account just fine.

This app no longer functions. Despite putting in my correct amazon login and password, it tells me that the username/password combination is incorrect. It also tells me that "your kindle is prepared for offline use," which is totally false, because once I open the app, there is no option for offline use--it forces the login. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the app. I have double-checked the password--the same password that will log me in to my amazon.Com account does not work at all with the app. Also, even when the app worked, in the past, it would only function off-line about half of the time--the other half of the time, it would force an online login and not allow any reading to take place until one logged in; this is a serious design flaw which does not exist in the Kindle for iPhone app, which does not require one to be slaved to the internet just tor read books that have already been downloaded to one's device.

The app never opens. It goes to a black screen with kindle in the middle for usually about 2 seconds then goes back to the start screen. Once or twice it has stayed on this screen for about 5 minutes but then it never does anything else.
I enjoyed reading this series of adventures. What free my attention was how I felt like I was reading a mix between Batman and Robin with the 1960's spy show The Avengers. My favorite adventure to read was Maestro Bellaco.

... but what choice do you have if you shop at Amazon? Shockingly weak ability to customize fonts, background color, margins. Weak for books, truly horrible for comics.
Why can't I swipe or scroll to view pages? Why can't I pinch-zoom? Weak.

SO great to be able to read when I'm on the go. It's cumbersome to carry my laptop and a book. The Kindle solves that problem!
