Free Kindle Reader 1.0
Easy to install and use
Free Kindle Reader installs in a couple of seconds and requires no special configuration for it to be able to open .azw files. When launched, it presents a neat and clean user interface which displays all of the application’s commands in plain sight or in easily accessible menus.
From its main window you are able to load a book, navigate through each page using previous and next commands, or even scroll directly to the first or last page if you need to. Zooming in and out is also allowed so you can easily make sense of the text you have in front of you.
Fit for basic use
Free Kindle Reader comes as a basic tool for those who just want to read an eBook. Apart from a simple search function, the application offers no other handy features. You can’t highlight text, take notes or add annotations.
Moreover, it doesn’t seem to memorize the books you open and that’s a big inconvenience. Not only can’t you navigate to a specific page, but when you resize the main window to refit the text, the page count resets according to the new amount of text that appears in it.
You do however get to copy content to Clipboard and afterwards to another application that can handle text or send it through a chat environment.
To sum things up, Free Kindle Reader is easy to use and it does offer a simple solution for opening Kindle books but the lack of more advanced features and the rather poor performance of existing ones barely make it practical.
