Buying Kindle Books
Ummie19971 on 2/18/2018
I truly love reading books on Kindle. I started with the Kindle 1st generation, I think, then upgraded to Kindle Fire, then got a second Kindle Fire. Each upgrade I “donated” the prior one to my husband because it was perfectly good and he enjoyed using it. When I won an iPad, one of the first things that I downloaded was the Kindle app. I had so many books already in the Kindle cloud that I had no need to purchase many books for a good while, only a few special new releases or recommendations. Now, recently, I have only been able to download samples of books and not the entire book. This is very frustrating and I would love to know why this is happening! If anyone could tell me how to circumvent this and purchase books for my Kindle app I would greatly appreciate it.
Love My Kindle App.

Can't even re-imagine life before Kindle. I read voraciously & love being able to access my Library from my phone or tablet.
Love the Kindle App
Totosmom on 2/18/2018
Have read more than ever now that I have the Kindle app. Love the fact that I’m not killing trees by buying books.
Love it!
MooseTex on 2/18/2018
Great app! Easy to use! Lots of free options! Variety of genres! Great synch feature!
Great, stable app

Hard to find a better reading app.
Works well across multiple devices
RancherRider on 2/18/2018
This has become my favorite way to read a book. I can read while I'm at work on my iPhone during a break and then pick right up where I was on my iPad when I get home. It works very well.
Absolutely love
Long time Verizon customer on 2/18/2018
I love using the kindle app on my iPad. I always have multiple books ready to read no matter where I am.
No complaints. Just good reading

The Kindle reading app is my app of choice on my iPad.
Love my kindle
lwd503 on 2/18/2018
I love to read and find the kindle easy to use. It easy to download any books to it and love that my library is available all the time. I also love the fact that you can read or listen on audible if available.
Best App Ever
Jely225 on 2/18/2018
This app is affordable and worth the monthly subscription. It is a must have for me. I find myself reading for hours.
rathaDWC on 2/18/2018
Wish Apple Book worked as well. Would like to be able to turn the pages using a keyboard like Apple. Apple skips pages, skips over a chapter if a page is seperated from a new chapter. It continues to read sentences on another page without turning the page, and then reads that sentence again. Wish Apple would get their act together and be more like Kindle.
Saved my life (figuratively)
Lucas kain on 2/18/2018
This app is invaluable since my kindle broke. I read for pleasure, to get away, to pass the time and when I should probably be working. This app allows me the escape I need, every time I need it.
Great program
Dcope4 on 2/18/2018
Best software program, reader I have ever used. Easy to use and even has a clock on the display. Just needs a battery level displayed on the top bar.
I love it!
Nuts4cereal on 2/18/2018
It’s easy to use and downloads take seconds to appear in my library. Hasn’t failed me yet and I plan on using it for a very long time.
I'm Addicted
TucFlyer on 2/18/2018
I'll admit it. I'm addicted to books on my iPad. I love the kindle app which makes buying and reading so easy. I wish, however, that kindle allowed scrolling in addition to page-turning. Especially when reading in bed, I find it much easier on the eyes.

It simply works for me.

Kindle on iPad
Gypsy with a gold-capped tooth on 2/18/2018
This is a great app. Have you ever gone on a lengthy trip with a good book you're only part way through? You know you'll finish it before you go home, and now you have a dilemma: how many books will you read while you're sitting at the bedside of your elderly Auntie? If you carried your library on a Kindle, you'd have your answer. If you zig when you should have zagged, Amazon has terrific customer support.
Love having Kindle on my phone
Momto2cats on 2/18/2018
I love being able to read anytime, anywhere whenever I have a moment. I don't understand why I can't delete books in the app that I downloaded via email, but luckily those don't count towards my 10 book max under Kindle Unlimited. But it would be nice to be able to clean up my library. No other complaints.
ClassyCee on 2/18/2018
Kindle makes my reading life so enjoyable! I don’t have to carry heavy books around. This is especially good when I need to carry heavy textbooks! Kindle also saves me from sore back and shoulders because it is so light. I have been using for years and could not live without one! A must for avid readers!
Steph Car on 2/18/2018
I never thought I would love reading on a "device" but downloading Kindle to my iPad has been amazing! So easy to use. I love it! It saves all my books. They're easy to find! No complaints from this girl!
Not Their Fault I Guess
BlargSH on 2/18/2018
Bottom line is that having to go to another app or site to buy the books means that it is not top tier. I know Apple is stacking the deck to make sure their app is easier to use, but there it is. I would rather use Apple’s app for books because I can do everything from searching to buying to reading all within the app. Until Amazon finds a way to make it available to match that ease I will read many more books on Apple’s app.
Wonderful Kindle
My Nickel on 2/18/2018
Great tool for avid readers!
Love kindle books
Sarhak on 2/18/2018
I love reading kindle books. I love the different color of pages you can change.
Kindle App
holley85 on 2/18/2018
Even readying from my phone is great! I enjoy buying and reading kindle books because I am both a book-lover and a minimalist. Even reading books on my phone (which is synced to the kindle app on my iPad) is great because I can read any time I get a moment!
Kindle Makes Buying Books and Reading Easy
CookinSteve on 2/18/2018
There’s simply no easier way to buy a book and read it. Period.
Love this app
Msjoy28 on 2/18/2018
As some of the other review states there are a few things that could improve. However I love this app. It helps keep me connected to my books at all times. I can leave my iPad at home and still have my books on my phone. It also sync up to my kindle which is great.
Kindle Reader on iPad
Grandpa T on 2/18/2018
The app has improved and has no problem syncing between the iPad and my iPhone for last page read.
Book Poor
Astelis on 2/18/2018
I know so many people that refuse to give up reading from an actual book and I would be right there with them if this stupidly great app wasn't so convenient. I binge series and end up buying and reading them in days. In one weekend I'll read 3 or 4 books. Not complaining, but also not getting anything done. 😁
Best way to get books read
Fredswifesue on 2/18/2018
I use it to listen to books. Even the Bible.
Love it
Kambie07 on 2/18/2018
I love my Kindle. I also have iBooks so I have access to so many books. My iPad is my most prized possession.

I love my kindle app! It’s amazing! I love reading on it!
Perfect app!!!
Graydenfox on 2/18/2018
My favorite reading app!!!
Good app
MissRed80 on 2/18/2018
The only downside to the app is sometimes books won’t delete. Other than that it’s great! I like that I can read across many devices and it saves my spots
Chez bugs):78?;:)$; on 2/18/2018
Love having the Kindle especially on cruises, long trips. Love my psycho thriller mysteries. And tho I still love the feel and smell of a paper book, this is much more convenient, and far less expensive than buying books.
Love my kindle app
Dmp1925 on 2/18/2018
I never thought o would like reading so much on the iPad but man I could just get lost in a book on here. Love how the kindle app allows me to move from iPad to phone when I’m on the go. Love it is all I can say.
What’s going on?
Tammers14 on 2/18/2018
I have a difficult time getting the app to sync on my iPhoneX.
Easy Reading
reading in georgia on 2/18/2018
Thought I would miss holding a physical book. After using the kindle for months it is uncomfortable to hold a bulky book.
Love reading my kindle but....
Sherij2 on 2/18/2018
Love my kindle but I recently lost most of my books from it. Just gone no explainable reason, broke my heart!! I have discovered so many talented writers from the free books and then I buy the next one in the series usually! It is great to be able to see if they are good without spending a fortune!
Great app!
Just a Minnesota Gal on 2/18/2018
Enjoy reading my books using the app!
Kindle app
Washburs on 2/18/2018
I really enjoy the latest changes made to the kindle app. I only wish it had text to voice capability like the kindle does.
Easy to use and can go just about anywhere with no books to lug around
Hoptotheblue on 2/18/2018
I love my Kindle app. I have it on my iPad mini and my iPhone. I take it everywhere with me. I used to take multiple books with me on my trips (I am an avid reader of multiple genres). I can flip between books and I can search for specific places in a book.
Love carrying my entire library!
GadsHill on 2/18/2018
What a great app! I try never to buy hardcopy books anymore. I try always to buy candles, so that I can just read them on my iPad. More space in the house, the books are always with me, and I seem to read a lot more. Very highly recommended!
Frustratingly difficult to purchase books on iPad
rockinrobin123 on 2/18/2018
Cannot purchase books directly from the Kindle app, nor from the Amazon app. Can only purchase apps on a web browser with no explanation. Not a huge deal but really annoying. Other issues too related to organizing books and trying to remove old purchases from the bookshelf. The discover feature where you can search for new titles (that you can't buy lol) is hard to browse through; for instance if you select "Fiction" it gives you 600,000 titles you just scroll through in order of popularity or ratings but not many other filters or helpful lists. I don't have 5 hrs to scroll through 600,000 titles

Don’t know what I would do without my kindle app

Howies is my go to delivery pizza source. They are prompt, accurate and the food always tasty. Haven’t had a bad order yet.
Great read
Vstaciee on 2/18/2018
I love this series! Just finished book 2 and now trying to buy ebook 3, but Amazon keeps switching the book 3 to 2 when I get to the pay page! Argh! The series is captivating!
Just too good
rwdukes on 2/18/2018
This fantastic!
Plenty of books to read at a drop of the hat
??Me on 2/18/2018
I have only one problem with kindle. All the book I have are all scrambled up. That makes it very hard to find the book you want. But it is great to have all my books right here
Kindle app is great
Midwest59gal on 2/18/2018
I have enjoyed the Kindle app on my iPad for over two years. Great books from PRIME given me each I enjoy the reading and time spent relaxing. Majority of the books I have selected have been 4-5 Stars. A true win win situation for me!
