About this app

The Kindle app puts over 1.5 million books at your fingertips. It’s the app for every reader, whether you’re a book reader, magazine reader, comics reader or newspaper reader—and you don’t need to own a Kindle to use the app. Choose from over a million Kindle books or enjoy popular magazines and newspapers, such as The Economist, The Spectator, The Guardian and The Daily Mail, with high-resolution colour images.*

• Read Books — Choose from more than one million e-books including bestsellers such as Pride & Prejudice or Treasure Island and new releases and over 200,000 Kindle-exclusive titles that you won’t find anywhere else, including books by bestselling authors such as Phil Rickman.

• Use the Built-In Dictionary, Google, and Wikipedia — The Kindle app has a built-in dictionary that allows you to look up words instantly while you’re reading your e-books. Simply press and hold a word to view its definition or use the Google and Wikipedia links to get more information.

• Sync Your E-Books — The Kindle app lets you read the same book across devices and syncs automatically, so you can start reading on one device and pick up where you left off on another device. The app syncs your furthest page read, bookmarks, notes and highlights between Android, PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and any of our Kindle devices using our Whispersync technology.

• Sample Books Before You Buy — You can read the first chapter of a book before you decide to buy on Amazon.co.uk

• Customize Your Reading — Choose your preferred font size, screen brightness, background color, and orientation (portrait or landscape) for reading your books.

* Selection of e-books and e-periodicals varies by country.

It seems that syncing with my kindle Paperwhite is not working properly, so if I read a bit on my phone, it doesn't transfer to the e-reader, even when forcing to sync. Works just fine in reverse. Also, not being able to purchase via the app is annoying as hell. At least add a link to the Amazon app listing when browsing. The e-reader browser is slow and the Amazon app is too distracting.

Overall I like the benefits of kindle. I use it on my Android phone and find navigating a little challenging at times, could be a little easier but I deal with that because the benefits outweigh it. Totally worth it if you like to learn, read, brush up on skills, improve yourself or something else or just want an escape! Something for everyone!

I was a hardcore physical book only guy for years, but I eventually broke down and picked up a few titles for the Kindle app on my phone. I have to say, when the Kindle app added dark mode, it was a game changer. I'm able to read comfortably in the dark in bed, and it was just easier for me to read and enjoy. Since then, I've used the Kindle app to read dozens of books, and have many more waiting. I'm able to find rare or lesser known titles which has made for an amazing reading experience
