Turn your smartphone into a Kindle Reader.
Amazon launched their e-reader Kindle on time. With this app, you can transform your smartphone into a Kindle and enjoy all the options that come with the real device.
The app allows you to read Kindle e-books on your smartphone, just as if it was a Kindle Reader. The interface is simple and intuitive, as it should be on an e-reader: tap the side of the screen to turn a page forward, pinch to zoom in and so on. You can change the font size and the background color, search for a topic or look up the meaning of a word in an online dictionary. You can also access the Kindle store and choose from the books and promotions, get sample extracts and so on.
Amazon Mobile belongs to Amazon.com. This is an official app.
Wanted a Kindle but couldn't afford it? Got a smartphone? Ok, so you won’t have the Kindle screensize, but you'll have a smartphone that acts just like the real thing.

• Sync Your eBooks—The Kindle app lets you read the same book across devices and automatically syncs where you left off so you can start reading on one device and pick up where you left off on another device.

Used to enjoy reading books as a youngster nowadays it's all electronic books i need to start reading a few fiction books the lord of the rings i only ever read the hobbit and there's 3 more in the series of the lord of the rings.
Really great app, easy to use and perfect for times when I don't want to carry my kindle with me.
I have got a kindle and when I buy books its nothing like this app!
I really like the readability adjustments I can make to prevent eye strain. I'm aging and I need large text on a dark background. On Kindle, I can have it all without having to shrink a page before turning it. Thanks.
