Like a Kindle... but on your phone and different
Amazon Kindle Review
by on February 19, 2012
Amazon has managed to do what we weren’t sure was possible – making e-books popular. But it’s not just the main device that’s been part of that – it’s the mobile apps as well.
If you’ve used Kindle on the iPhone or Android, it’s not a lot different, truth be told, but there’s not a lot more we’d want from it.
Basically, you can sign in to your account and get access to all the books associated – and there’s an easy to use link to the Kindle Store to get more tomes.
The viewing of the books is slick and offers a wide selection of font sizes to get the reading experience you want – although it seems you’ll need to wait a second while the page loads each time.
We’d also like to see other option for turning the page, such as using the volume key to flick through pages, but it’s easy to navigate through otherwise.
One problem we found is that there’s no mention of how much a book is downloaded when you click to buy it – it simply says ‘Downloading’ which means you’ve no idea how long to wait.
Other than that, it’s an excellent app which will sync with whatever you’ve been reading on other devices… good enough for us.
