The Kindle for PC/Mac/iPhone/Android Apps--why aren't they improving?

At a 1:1 school, all of our students can access the Kindle App on their Lenovo tablets.  This is great for public domain texts.  It is great for me to use as I teach by projecting the App onto the board so that we can do close readings of a passage.  But, it is frozen in time.  No updates, no changes, no improvements.  It feels like the App is the red headed stepchild at Amazon. 

Here is what I want: I want to be able to tag my notes and then search my notes and sort my notes by tag *across my entire library*.  I want to be able to underline and italicize words in my notes.  I want to be able to tweet my highlights and notes from the App.  I want xray on the App.  I don't think these are unreasonable requests! 

I don't even know where to begin.  Do I email Amazon?  If so, whom?  Will anyone ever read it?  Any ideas?
