A good app for passionate book readers: you can have your favourite books everywhere without actually carrying it!
Kindle is one of the most popular and user-friendly apps for reading. You can choose from 6 million books, magazines, newspapers, comics and manga and read it wherever you are without carrying a heavy paper book with you. E-books are often way cheaper than hardcover ones so with the Kindle app you can save a tangible amount of money.
The app is free and easy to use. You can customise the layout for the most comfortable reading. Choose the font type, text size, orientation (vertical or horizontal), background color and even the way you’d like to turn pages.
You can subscribe to Kindle Unlimited for $9.99 a month and enjoy over 1 million titles or you can download books one by one. Before purchasing the books you can try each one by downloading 20% of the book for free. This way you can decide whether you want to continue reading or not without paying for it in advance.
When reading you can use an electronic bookmark, highlight quotations, review the definitions of some words, use the built-in dictionary, X-Ray and Wikipedia lookup. You can also track your reading progress: how much did you read already and how many pages are left. Kindle app also analyzes your reading speed and tells you how much time it will take for you to finish the book. When you can’t read you can switch to listening to the audible version of this book.
Kindle is also available for iOS devices, Mac and PC.
