    <p>Write Amazon and complain. That's the only way your first two are going to change.</p>

    <p>Isn't Kindle Reader available? I'm used it on my Windows 10 machine yesterday.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#295947">In reply to james.h.robinson:</a></em></blockquote><p>The Kindle software on Windows is terrible and out of date. You're better off using their Cloud Reader (and doing so offline). </p>

    <p>With PlayOn, everything becomes an offline download. If these companies aren't going to fix it for you, fix it yourself.</p>

    <p>I use the Kindle for PC app and it works very well. It was last updated this April. </p>

    <p>Everytime people say there are 'apps we need' for such and such, they always bring up Amazon, Kindle or Google apps and services. Sorry, guys. Easier said than done. Ball lies in Google's and Amazon's respective courts. I'm sure Microsoft would love to have apps in the store that better fit customer needs, but many times, its out of their hands.</p>
