Best program ever!

Tried them all, this one is one of the poorest. If you like it, give a try to Adobe Digital Editions that looks almost exactingly the same, and offers the same lack of configuration. Hey, even CoolReader is better than this, at least you ca choose the backgound.

If you do however need a real ebook reader, jump to another league and give Calible a try.

The annoying thing about this program is that it insists on installing itself on your C drive. It ought to offerthe option of installing in a location decided by the user.

So I cannot purchase an eBook from Barns&Noble or Coles Book Store. I have to get it from Amazon in order for it to play in Kindle. Wow! No thanks. I'll stick to the paper books. Thanks.

Well with a world population of approximatly 6,898,700,000 8m suddenly seems a lot less! Barely 0.1% infact.

The US has about 308,745,538 residents so 8m is still only 2.5% roughly. That's hardly popular!

People hear the word million and get all over excited!!

This software is very amateurish at best. Take a look at Calibre and see what an ebook app should look like...

So far the estimate is over 8 million Kindle readers have been sold. What exactly is your definition of "popular"?

This program is already popular as many people that use netbooks to read Kindle books. You cannot read a Kindle book with Adobe PDF readers.

if more people purchase kindle perhaps this will become a popular utility until then it's virtually useless as adobe .pdf format is clearly superior in many ways...

It lets you read your books, but that's about it. They have the ability to make a nice Windows client but they won't because it would lower Kindle sales. I have "Kindle for PC" on my dual touch Win7 tablet. Oh the possibilities! Maybe one day Amazon will wake up. If they had a nice Windows client then they would sell more books.

It downloads the books that I had purchased for my Kindle, but won't open them. Says "This book could not be opened. Please remove the book from your device and redownload it". Also, I can't search or look up words like I can with the Kindle device.

Complete crap, just like the Kindle itself. This app does NOT show you the newspapers/magazines/journals you are subscribed on and moreover, it does not allow you to add files (.azw) manually. There is no ability to search within the content. I mean, I honestly don't get it. From my point of view, an application like this is would be useful to search within the content I purchased. Let's say I have 100 of issues of a daily magazine, and I want to locate a specific article. But this has absolutely no use, except for allowing you to read only books. But tell me this, if this program is presumably for those who already own a device, why would they read their books on their PCs (which is tiring and bad for the eyes)?
So pardon me, but it's simply useless since it adds no added convenience or functionality.
Funny how Amazon drops a device, with absolutely ZERO support, robbing the authors/publishers and probably expecting people to continue buying from them. Well, good luck with that. I regret buying a Kindle and ever buying anything from Amazon.

Just loaded it. Installation was no problem. I have a couple Kindle books, and it immediately downloaded them after I entered my account info.

It even remembered where I was on the one book I had already started.

So far so good...this is an early review, and I will update later if needed.
