Lending only works on Kindle devices, not the apps. Specifically, there are two things that Amazon lets you do only with Kindle devices. First, Amazon Prime members can "borrow" books from the Kindle Library, which includes lots of bestsellers and older books, but only on Kindle devices. Second, users can lend many (but not all) books to other Amazon users. ...

Because otherwise Amazon would have to give Apple a cut of the 'in-app purchases'. One article on the subject.

Yes, you can in theory read Kindle books on almost any other ebook reader or tablet. However, this requires you to convert your mobi or azw file to other formats, such as epub. There is software for this, but, as you can imagine, you will be breaking the DRM. It is therefore not legal, at least in the United States and presumably other countries where the ...

I have found 2 solutions to this. The first is to download the Windows 7 version of the Reader from here. When I installed that particular version on W8.1, the popup said it was going to "expire soon" (which likely speaks to the fact that the company will be dropping XP support from the next version, not that they'll be discontinuing the non-Metro version ...

It looks like this is an Amazon based issue. This book is currently unavailable because there is an issue with its description, content, or formatting. We are working with the publisher to fix the issue. As always, we value customer feedback. Note that is book is avaiable at Wikisource & PG

Tap on the indicator to cycle through the options. For me (using Kindle for iPad version 4.4) it cycles through Loc X of Y X mins left in book X minutes left in chapter blank

Some Wattpad files are epub format and other are jad format and the latter may be more of an issue though I did find a number of on-line converter claiming to be able to convert them - preferably to epub as I found that reading pdfs on the Kindle was hard work because they are not re-paginated or re-flowed to match your screen size. Personally I would ...

I don't believe there is an option to switch to a normal (desktop) UI for that particular app. Keep in mind, that Metro-style (or modern or whatever they are calling it now) apps are supposed to be fullscreen. They are optimized for touchscreens and swiping (or right-clicking in the case of a non-touchscreen, windows 8 device). There is a workaround for ...

Yes, the books will still appear within the Kindle app on the new computer, provided that you are signed in to your account. I believe you can be signed in to the kindle app on up to 6 devices, removing one device will not affect the books you have purchased (you may just need to re-download them on to the new device).

I asked the same question to an Amazon customer service. The answer I got was NO. I did recommended them to design a way to allow users to link their multiple accounts in whatever countries. What I'm doing now is using an Android simulator on my desktop computer, where I can run a separate Kindle app and use a different Kindle account. The Android ...

Another benefit, and one I use to advantage is that e-ink Kindles (and other e-ink devices) are essentially designed for one purpose, to enable people to read eBooks. There are few apps installed, sometimes none. There's little temptation to use the device for other purposes - they're for reading, period. I've provided over 20 kindles to 10 schools in rural ...

Amazon Support said (on 2019-05-24) that syncing personal documents is not supported. Here is my chat: ► Amazon: I'm sorry, currently there is no option to see the highlights made in the personal documents. ► Me: Ok, you are saying that Amazon deleted the website that allowed viewing highlights made in personal documents. Then I still have the other 2 ...

Amazon has two types of eBook subscription services 1. Kindle Unlimited 2. Kindle Owner's Lending Library Differences: The books available to each service are both around 1.4 million titles. Amazon Prime members can borrow ONE book each calendar month from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library. This link has a good video of how to search the Kindle Owner'...

I've been using kindle inside an android emulator on my windows 8 tablet for a while now in order to read personal documents and get the full syncing capabilities. Like you, I've seen that even though the registered emulator app shows on your device list at amazon, you can't send documents to it directly. The workaround is to send documents to one of your ...

My answer shouldn't be treated as definitive, but I did google around a bit. One youtuber claims that he can access books from two accounts by logging off the device with his original account, logging on with the second account, downloading the ebooks locally, logging off again and then relogging with the original account. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

I haven't tested on ios for a few months, but my experience has been that the differences between ios and other platforms in the last 2 or 3 years have reduced considerably. A while back I compiled a list of the included fonts for each platform (including ios). What are serif and sans serif fonts on different ebook reading systems? When I test on ios, I ...

To the best of my knowledge, the Kindle apps on both stock Android and FireOS are very similar. So you should have no bother with how your ebook is displayed within the application on those operating systems. One additional point to add - You can get an Android emulator on your PC/Laptop and test out your ebook within the Kindle app on this emulated ...

Amazon no longer supports Active Content for current eInk Kindle models (the last supported model is the 6th generation Paperwhite). For more information see this page. If you haven't updated your firmware to the latest version, you might be a able to jailbreak it and to install a homebrew editor app.

Make use of Amazon Prime reading. With this, you can borrow 10 books at a given time, provided you're Prime member. Note: Prime Reading doesn't provide all the books. But it's good enough to be read.

Or is this an actual query which is digested and followed by the Kindle app on the ipad? This is an actual media query that you can use in Kindle KF8 books. For example, you could use the following code to display paragraphs in red if the orientation is changed to landscape. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//...

If you right click on a listing you get the option to download.

The books you send via "send-to-kindle" should show up under the documents tab. Within the documents tab you will need to select "cloud", then you should be able to download to the device from there. Odd about the foreign language dictionaries. I had them on mine also a while back and thought maybe someone had hacked my account and was buying books ...

New (April 2014) Solution: Go to Amazon Cloud Drive (https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/). Select documents (one-at-a-time only) and click Download. Old Solution that can work without Internet Access: Deliver the documents/books to your iPhone or iPad Kindle. Download & install an app such as iFunBox Classic (free). This app allows you to ...

If you use google there is an extension/app for kindle. I am a blogger and I review E books so it is very necessary for me to be able to use notes from a tablet to my pc and even on my phone. I have authors send me ARC books to review all the time. Use the app to send yourself the book in a pdf file. There are several free conversion sites online you can use ...
