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.

Used Kindle for over 10 years! I really can't get along without it as I read wherever I go and have the chance. I read from either a Samsung tablet or my android phone. My only complaint is that Even though I sync my devices, the display on my phone does not mirror the display on my tablet; the home page does not show the book that I'm most currently reading and it sometimes shows books which I've already removed from the home page. That is annoying.

This app is mostly pretty good but it has some problems. If you leave the app open too long in the background, then the progress bar disappears and you have to restart the app. Also, translations are a real mixed bag. Many languages can't have one way dictionaries to English, like Italian or Norwegian. Also, the translate that uses bing often chooses the wrong language or doesn't translate at all.

FIX IT, AND FIX IT NOW PLEASE! All the recent comments about the app bugs track and are ruining the experience of a once cool app. WTH is going on!? Basic features like timers, bookmarking, audio downloads, synchronization, the app not randomly shutting down, etc for AMAZON and all its tech wizardry should not be this complicated...especially since ALL of these features worked before. Get it together, it's extremely frustrating.
