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.

My first review was 4 stars as I was having issues with the immersion feature. It's now working (yay!), but now, unfortunately, another issues has sprung up that is extremely annoying. It seems we are unable to highlight text when playing audio, yet when going back in later sometimes the highlights are there? But one never knows if they will be there or not. It's distracting and unreliable. I'm trying to find another app that will allow me to use these features without the hassle. Plz fix!

I have to reinstall this app every time I start a new book. The whisper sync doesn't match up. Half the time the audio download doesn't work and when it does it encounters errors and I have to constantly restart the download. Very frustrating. This is on my Samsung S22+. Unfortunately this is the only app that does what I'm looking for, when it's actually working correctly.

About half the time, it won't have the option to play the audiobook for the book in reading. I've been reading the same book for a few weeks and it does work sometimes. It's supposed to have the option to switch seamlessly between the two. If I open my audible app to try listening, often is hasn't synced my most recent location from reading. I love the app when that feature is working properly.
