About this app

The Kindle app puts over 1.5 million books at your fingertips. It’s the app for every reader, whether you’re a book reader, magazine reader, comics reader or newspaper reader—and you don’t need to own a Kindle to use the app. Choose from over a million Kindle books or enjoy popular magazines and newspapers, such as The Economist, The Spectator, The Guardian and The Daily Mail, with high-resolution colour images.*

• Read Books — Choose from more than one million e-books including bestsellers such as Pride & Prejudice or Treasure Island and new releases and over 200,000 Kindle-exclusive titles that you won’t find anywhere else, including books by bestselling authors such as Phil Rickman.

• Use the Built-In Dictionary, Google, and Wikipedia — The Kindle app has a built-in dictionary that allows you to look up words instantly while you’re reading your e-books. Simply press and hold a word to view its definition or use the Google and Wikipedia links to get more information.

• Sync Your E-Books — The Kindle app lets you read the same book across devices and syncs automatically, so you can start reading on one device and pick up where you left off on another device. The app syncs your furthest page read, bookmarks, notes and highlights between Android, PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and any of our Kindle devices using our Whispersync technology.

• Sample Books Before You Buy — You can read the first chapter of a book before you decide to buy on

• Customize Your Reading — Choose your preferred font size, screen brightness, background color, and orientation (portrait or landscape) for reading your books.

I do love how if purchased on audible you can listen and read along. I'm a visual learner, so audible really helps. However the pages are so touchy. I feel like a piece of dust touching my screen turns the page. It's very inconvenient that it doesn't just start back at the last part I was at if you go back. example: when the page turns it, when you go back it automatically goes back to the top. Not every word on a page allows you to play from that part. besides that kindle is the perfect app!

I thought sync meant both my devices would have the same books downloaded on them so I didn't have to manually do it? If that's the case, it doesn't work between this app and my fire 8 tablet. Yes, I'm using the latest update. Also the font size for notes is waaay to tiny, and it can't be adjusted. Can't highlight on a PDF? Maybe that's some adobe license issue but it would be nice.

The latest update yesterday with "bug fixes" have actually caused my perfectly functioning app to almost not function at all. I can read the one i have open, but it won't display any new books I've added to my library and i can't open others ive previously started. When I try to refresh or open something it just closes the app with no warning or error message. Incredibly frustrating.
