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've been using the kindle app for years now and have always enjoyed it. But I've had a lot of issues lately with the app freezing up, restarting my book at page 1, and the audio books that I purchase to go with the books I buy/borrow not syncing with the app. I don't know what is happening, but please fix this! Especially the issues with audio books 😩 It's driving me crazy.

I love this app! I like being able to read wherever, and have it sync across multiple devices. I enjoy the challenges they give every quarter to read a week, a month, a different genre. It helps me try new things I normally never would consider. I wish they gave away a lot of free books for those who met a reading challenge - like give a prize for actually doing them. but otherwise, this is my go-to reading app.

This App used to be great. Now when you close out of a book with a long title, the title of your last opened book streams across the bottom of the screen (think rolling information while watching news channels). The title used to be static and not distracting. You can't remove the streaming. The movement of scrolling letters draws the eye and distracts. You want to browse for more books to buy? Hey, look --LOOK--the title of your last book is streaming across the screen! What a terrible feature.
