A Guide To Reading Kindle eBooks On Third Party Devices


Kindle eBooks are becoming more and more popular – and the good news is that you can still read them even if you don’t own a Kindle, or you don’t have a Kindle on you.

All of Amazon’s Kindle apps are free to download from the Amazon website, and mean that even people who don’t own a Kindle can still read Kindle eBooks! If you wish to buy any Kindle books, all you need to do is sign up for an account through Amazon and purchase in the same way as you would with any other item on the Amazon website.

Kindle For PC, Mac, iPhone And iPad

Amazon have created applications for reading Kindle books on both Mac and PC. The app is simple to use and makes use of the full size of your screen for reading eBooks.

If you own an iPhone or an iPad then don’t think you’re limited to Apple’s own eBook reading app. In fact, go to the app store and you’ll find Kindle available to download for free, helping to expand its use even further.

Shopping For New Books

Not only do the Kindle apps for PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad mean you can read your Kindle books in different ways, you can also buy them through these apps, too! Search for and download free samples of books you may be interested in reading, and buy the full version if you like it. Or buy from the Amazon.com website – the choice is yours.

Whispersync Between Devices

The best thing about using the Kindle app on all of your devices is that it’s so easy to switch between them when you’re reading books. As soon as you load the apps, they’ll automatically download any new eBooks you may have purchased on another device. For example, if you buy an eBook on your Kindle iPhone app and then later open up Kindle for PC, your new eBook will be there waiting.

Even better, the Whispersync feature means that the furthest read page will automatically be updated. You won’t need to remember where you got up to on the last page you were reading from – the Kindle apps will automatically do it for you!

Why Would You Want To Read Kindle eBooks On Other Devices?

At first thought it may seem pointless to buy Kindle eBooks if you don’t own the Kindle itself. However, the truth is that many of the Kindle eBooks are very competitively priced – some are even free – making them more affordable than digital eBooks. There’s also a huge convenience to getting your eBooks delivered instantly, instead of having to go out to the store or waiting for items to be delivered! All in all, it’s a very smart move by Amazon to make their products available in these ways!
