    "Kindle Doesn't Print"

    August 8, 2014  |   By fk57304

    Version: Kindle for PC 1.10.8 build 40514

    Pros

    It can download to the app quickly

    Cons

    You can print any ebooks that you purchased by Amazon's Kindle. You are stuck with the app. You really can't do what you want with the ebook you purchased. One such feature is printing. While any tech app in the world has printing options, Kindle does not. The only thing you can do is print one by one..Seriously? Either you can print or not. What is this page by page priting.. Don't have that much time to waste. This app is useless. I wouldn't even download it. There is a reason why is free. Amazaon is trying to convince everyone to use it.

    Summary

    Books come in different formats. I can get books in PDF and don't have any issues. I need to print and highlight as I am reading. I just found out that I can print but only page by page. Either you can print or you can't. Not having a printing option in an app is horrible. We live in a tech world and that is a basic function. This software is useless. I will not buy another kindle ebook.

    "Good idea but not reliable on Vista at any rate"

    May 7, 2014  |   By alphasun4

    Version: Kindle for PC 1.10.8 build 40514

    Pros

    Free, works some of the time

    Cons

    Won't download some books on my home wireless setup.

    Summary

    I have Vista on a Vaio and find that some books won't download the full versions after purchase despite pulling out all the solutions stops provided by Amazon. I just bought a best seller (Piketty's Capital in the 21st Century) and can download the sample easily but not the book even though I've bought it.
    I suspect that my Homeplugs arrangements at home may interfere with the download, or that Amazon's servers are overloaded.

    "GREAT AP to categorize your Kindle books...."

    April 4, 2014  |   By Parisfox

    Version: Kindle for PC 1.10.8 build 40514

    Pros

    I "love" this. I have almost 2000 Kindle books in my Cloud Reader and this makes it SO easy to sort them into different categories. I just don't understand why this isn't available as an ap for the Kindle Fire. That would make SO much sense to have it on the Kindle. But...having it on my computer is better than nothing. I have several different collections (categories). Mystery; Historical; Romance; Western; Paranormal; Fantasy; Recipes & Cookbooks; Misc; and others. Makes it much easier to find the type of book I want to read next.

    Cons

    The ONLY thing I don't like about this is that I can't put it on my Kindle Fire. Please make it available as a Kindle ap.

    Summary

    Get it...you won't regret it...especially if you are an avid reader like I am.

    I also have a collection named "Already Read" where I put the titles after I read them and remove them from whatever collection they were in before I read them.
