  1. Calling the Kindle reader ‘amazing’ is like saying Windows 3.1 was AWESOME. The Kindle app can’t even search for subdirectories. No search by author? Genre? It seems to have no features at all. It does look nice, but that’s about it. And any reader can be configured with the same font and background.
    So are there any alternative app to Kindle that read Mobies, PDFs, TXT, ect? There has to be something better than Kindle, it just doesn’t … do.. anything.
