Next to worthless

Don’t expect this app to work like the iOS version. It will download your Kindle ebooks, but doesn’t sync collections. This also applies to the Windows version.

Kernel Panics Galore!

Seriously Amazon, come on! Could you stop using monopolistic business practices for just long enough to hire someone who knows how to write an app for Mac? This thing kernel panics every time I try to adjust the width of the textview. That’s right, changing the width of a field for some reason needs to crash my entire computer and force a restart! What the heck! Whoever wrote this should be canned.
