  • Cannot Sync Collections

    By T Beyer
    I have just been informed by customer support at Amazon that the Kindle app on MacOS does not support syncing cloud collections from iOS or Kindle devices such as my Paper White.
  • Kindle gets worse each upgrade

    By @NeeVA
    Since loading the latest version, my kindle is no longer functional on my MAC. I literally have to click at least 15 times before I get a processing. Then several more before the processing runs its cycle and actually opens. The books now go through a ‘formatting’ before they will actually open. They used to just open. At first books purchased were no longer able to open. I got the delete and redownload message. Then the application would open after a very long opening process. All new purchases went directly to archive and display the download failed message. Then the application would partially load then crash. Now the application will open eventually. I have to manually download each book. The Kindle developers obviously never heard of the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. They seriously need to test their app on multiple platforms before deploying.
  • Just make it sync with kindle, my god, can't send to kindle

    By GrandTerr
    Send to kindle sends only to mobile devices, no mac sync.
  • Version 1.25.2 For Mac Will not open

    By 10284657483
    I share the same issue with others. I was working on my college work last night with no issues. Woke up this morning and was unable to open the app on my Mac. I sent a tweet to amazon looking for help with the problem and they suggested live chat with customer service. After hours of customer service suggesting the same thing over and over (uninstall, reinstall, restart, clear cache, try another network) and speaking with several different customer service employees, I realized the issue was not going to get resolved and decided to write this review instead. I’ve had minor inconveniences with this app in the past and for the most part I love using it for school work as I can do a quick search, make notes, highlights, etc. However, if I am not even able to open the app (especially after spending money on several books) I would have to say this app is currently garbage. I can only hope that amazon resolves these issues soon as I have read other reviews with those that have the same problem. Help fix this problem please.
  • Don’t download this update!

    By DeeEff90
    The update is terrible. It takes for ever to load and heats up my laptop. The app is unstable and quits much more frequently than before. I’m going to restore the old version.
  • The underlying message

    By bmccar
    If Amazon’s goal is to express how unimportant MacOs is by putting out this half-axxxx app, they have succeeded. Buggy, crash prone, sloppy navigation.
  • Unusable on my iMac

    By mathmarm
    Since the latest update, Kindle crashes the moment I attempt to open any ebook. I have tried dozens of times.
  • why oh why oh why

    I’d really like to get my newstand magazines I get on my Kindle to also download onto my mac version of Kindle. Sometimes I need to print an article from my Handwoven subscription. I’m about ready to cancel all subscriptions to the newsstand on the Kindle. And don’t tell me to print directly from the Kindle. I’ve tried. It doesn’t happen. I’m not buying a new printer. It would be a lot easier to change my Kindle newsstand subscriptions to maybe Zinio or whateve it’s called.
  • Doesn't Sync

    By J~Boogy
    I have to say I am quite disappointed. The Mac version does not sync with my other devices - iPad, and iPhone - highlights and notes from these devices are missing. Also, whatever highlights/notes are on the Mac version do not transfer to the other devices. When I try to sync on the Mac, I receive a message that I am on the furthest page, which is highly incorrect, especially since I was on a different device a few moments prior. This one flaw greatlly impedes my productivity :(
