Works for me


You hear quite often “oh, I just like the feel of a real book”. Sorry, I don’t notice whether I am holding a book, kindle or iPad when I am reading.
I like the ability to change font sizes. Have multiple books with me at all times. The dictionary, if I am having a brain fade, and being backlit so I can read in low light conditions.
I find reading a paper book clumsy and inconvenient. As do, I suppose, the trees that get cut down to make them.

Best of the best reading apps


I’ve tried many other apps. They are all good but I like Kindle better because of its open book style. I don’t like sidebars and pop ups so much as just a simple open book style for reading.

I like the clips feature where I can store my favourite highlighted quotes.

I would like to see more books with voice options as iOS can automatically read all words.

Thing is, even if I go and buy a book on another app, after sampling the kindle version I find I want to buy it so I’ll be looking to buy kindle only from now on,

When I read, I feel exactly as if I’m reading a book and that’s how it should be.

Great app

The kindle app has everything I look for in a book reader. And I’m really impressed with their customer service. After contacting them with an issue they bent over backwards to sort it out. And soon after they issued an update with a fix!
