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.

Pros: 1. Quite a few books. 2. Kindle Unlimited is worth the price if you read a lot. 3. Can sync multiple devices. Cons: 1.Sometimes the kindle price of a book is more than the price of the physical book, which makes exactly no sense. 2. You cannot purchase any books that you find through the Kindle app. You have to back out and go to the Amazon web page and search for the book you just found or save it to your lists. Still inconvenient, still doesn't make sense.

This was previously an excellent app and I do still love the available content. However, it's now very difficult to download books and is no longer user friendly. What used to be one or two clicks is now multiple clicks, if you can even find what you're looking for. I'm still waiting on a recent book to download after multiple tries. Also, there now seems to be an issue with syncing across devices.

The only thing this app does well is let you read a book. Everything else is a sea of garbage and promotion, and even worse now, you can't buy books or view the store from the app. I can't even see any links that direct you to the website anymore, so anything of interest you have to go do it over again in Amazon in order to download anything. Technology isn't supposed to make things more convoluted, but the time when Google and Amazon were helpful companies is long past.
