About this app

On the bus, on your break, in your bed—never be without something to read. The Kindle app puts millions of books, magazines, newspapers, comics, and manga at your fingertips.

- Find your next great read with Kindle. Choose from millions of Kindle books (including books with Audible narration), magazines, audiobooks, and comics. Explore new releases, Amazon Charts best sellers, and titles across genres like romance, science fiction, children’s books, self-help, religion, nonfiction, and more—and try any book with a sample in the app before you buy on

- Kindle Unlimited members can enjoy unlimited reading and listening, with the freedom to explore over 1 million titles, thousands of audiobooks, and current magazines.

- Thousands of books, magazines, comics, and more included with Amazon Prime.

Turn your phone or tablet into a book with the Kindle app—so you can read anytime, anywhere. Explore these reading features in the Kindle app:

- Read your way. Customize your text size, font type, margins, text alignment, and orientation (portrait or landscape)—and choose whether to turn pages from left to right or continuously scroll. Read comfortably day and night with adjustable brightness and background colors. Go to the Aa menu in your book to get started.

- Look up words, people, and places while you read. Breeze through words you don’t know and characters you can’t remember with the built-in dictionary, X-Ray, Wikipedia lookup, instant translations, and search within your book. Simply tap and hold a word to view its definition, or follow links to Google and Wikipedia to get more information.

- Track your reading progress. See what percent of the book you’ve read, real page numbers (for most top titles), and how much time you have left in the chapter or book based on your actual reading speed.

- Bookmark places you want to revisit, and make highlights and take notes throughout your book. Open My Notebook to see all your notes in the same place.

- Hop, skim, and jump with Page Flip. Flip between pages or get a bird’s-eye view of your book with Page Flip—don’t worry, we’ll save your place.

- Zoom in on high-definition color images in Kindle books, magazines, comics, and manga.

- Sync your books across devices. When you’re reading a book, the Kindle app will automatically sync where you left off—along with any bookmarks, highlights, or notes—so you can start reading on one device and pick up where you left off on another.

- When you can’t read, listen. Switch seamlessly from reading your Kindle book to listening to the Audible book, all within the Kindle app.

- Get notified when authors you love have new releases.

I use the Kindle app on my phone, tablet and laptop, and it syncs pretty good. Sometimes the Kindle and Audible books are bundled together, and it syncs both apps on all my devices. The only issue with the Kindle phone app is that the highlighter will stop working and I have to close the app and reopen it. This has been an issue for at least the last 2 years. None of the updates has fixed the issue. Everything else works great.

Love Kindle, love being able to read on all my devices. But, I wish purchases were able to be made through app. I suppose it's good for my bank account that I can't make impromptu purchases, but it's inconvenient to browse books and have to add to your wishlist, then exit the app, go to the web browser, then go to your list and purchase rather than just purchase from the app.

I have enjoyed many options with Kindle over the years and I really like the Unlimited option, but the reason it gets 3 stars is that it's hard to find books I want to read. I have a big library both IRL and on this app. I can't remember every title I have. I like to look by genre, author, title and cover. Sometimes I'm looking for something new that I know nothing about. Getting through thousands of books becomes overload and then I quite. I would love a better way to find books in my library.
