Kindle Android App Available Now

Ready to get your Android Kindle on?  Amazon has finally released the Kindle app to the Android Market in hopes of satisfying all of your mobile book reading needs.

As you may have guessed, this app allows you to access all of your previous Kindle purchases, works in both landscape and portrait mode, and most importantly, let’s you act like a Kindle owner without actually purchasing one.

Free baby!

    I've been waiting for this app to come out for a while now. What a disappointment when I installed the app and purchased my first book and all I see is garbage, random charracters. Let's see what Amazon does to make good my 7.99 purchase.

    The text is very readable but diagrams can't be resized. This is unfortunate. I would probably use this app quite a bit. I changed the text background to sepia and it is easy on the eyes. It is good that you can sample all the books. Makes it easy to tell how useful the app will be.

    It actualy reads very well. The print font is adjustable as well as background page colors. I am impressed with how well it works.

    Sorry for the off topic post, but i'm having some serious troubles with getting my backup back. Flashed BB 0.3 without any problems, but after trying to install one of chevy's kernels all hell broke loose. I got stuck in a boot loop, unable to navigate anywhere on my home screen without freezing and then rebooting.

    Booted into recovery, but clockworkmod can't seem to find my backups.

    I made two, one while i was on BB 1.0, and one on 0.3 before applying the OC kernel. Is it possible that Rom Manager isn't recognizing my premium license? Has anyone dealt with this before? I'm new to the troubleshooting, as everything has gone smoothly for me in the past.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

      Hey Gloom,

      I think you're problem is you're looking to install a ROM Manager backup while booting directly into the recovery console.

      What you need to do instead is load a fresh copy of any ROM from the recovery console, then redownload ROM manager once you're booted back up, and from in there restore one of your ROM manager backups.

      If you look in your clockworkmod/download folder you should have any ROMS/Kernels in there that you've previously downloaded in Rom Manager to pick from.

      Then pick it, flash it, let it boot, you can probably skip activation if you want (drag to all four corners of the screen when the activation window pops up,) reinsall rom manager, flash clcokworkmod recovery, manage backups, restore whatever backup you like, you're done!

      Hope this helps :)

    Sweet!

  • jeesung

    cool! i won a bet on which would come first. Kindle App or Check-in feature for Yelp App.

  • MAK

    Reading books on the Droid is sweet. Currently I use Aldiko book reader. With the Kindle, does it handle all books or just books purchased with Kindle?

    • rockymtnhigh

      Just books from the Kindle store. 620,000 of them. I am really liking how the book list shows the book covers in full cover. Makes me realize that it would be nice to have my Kindle in color – of course that eliminates the ability to read in full sunlight.

      But this app is very nice.

  • rockymtnhigh

    The app works great. Nice to have my Kindle library with me when I don't have my kindle by my side.

    So, next time i go camping and im laying in my hammock i can read a book while talking on the phone while searching for directions to give to my wife whos on windows messenger video chat while secretly watching porn on my wirelessly tethered laptop. damn i love this phone.

      Now that is multi tasking!

  • Blp2021

    If only I read books.

  • Michael_NM

    No problems entering the Kindle store here, but I can't imagine I'll actually read many books this way. Still, it's very cool. On a side note, I wonder how many hours of lost work Droid-Life is responsible for… not complaining, just wondering. :)

    woot?

    Finally….

    YEA!!! I am so excited now!

  • Moeyknight

    Yay! Finally. Although, I'll never really read on my phone it'll be cool to have.

    • Moeyknight

      And no problems registering. I already have a Kindle account, so I don't know if that makes a difference.
