These things are great at first (this is the second I've had), but after about a year they start getting glitchy. It won't pull up an app, or it takes forever to do it; it randomly drops Wi-Fi signals (while everything else is still online); some apps just don't work well in it, even tho they claim to be Kindle apps; the battery life goes down to nothing too fast, or doesn't hold a charge of it's idle for a day. The screen is super-touchy, which isn't good if you're older and have hand tremors. It's just not that user-friendly.When this current one goes, I won't buy another. Two strikes and you're out with me.
