App is great but it crashes a lot

I used this application on my laptop(Samsung) to read all my pdf’s and books it works fine there but on Mac Whenever I open the app it closes by itself with no error, happening since the day one, the application works only when you open it 2-3 times after the crash, it is pretty annoying and irritating please fix it.

Keeps crashing; cannot use it at all

The Kindle app is super important for me because I prefer to buy a lot of my postgraduate coursework books on Kindle and make notes, highlight important passages etc.

While the features seem great, there are pretty much pointless because this app on my macbook has been crashing a few seconds after I open it every single time.

Note: I have now updated my Mac OS, removed the Kindle app and am reinstalling it in the hope that I will be able to use it. I will submit an updated feedback a few weeks from today.

Feature loaded app and working fine

The latest update seems to have solved many issues including freequent crashes and glitches. As of now it's working pretty perfectly but could have been more swift and smooth. Hoping that next update will optize it and make it even better to use. Overall nice work being done. Cheers to developer team ❤︎
