Description

Read books on your phone, including thousands of free Kindle books.

The Kindle app puts over a million books at your fingertips. It’s the app for every reader, whether you’re a book reader, magazine reader, or newspaper reader—and you don’t need to own a Kindle to use it. Choose from over a million Kindle books from the Kindle Store or enjoy popular magazines like The Economist and Reader’s Digest with high-resolution color images.*

• Read Free Books—Choose from thousands of free ebooks such as Pride & Prejudice or The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
• Shop for Books—Easily shop for ebooks, including new releases and New York Times Best Sellers.
• Use the Built-In Dictionary, Google, and Wikipedia—The Kindle app has a built-in dictionary that allows you to look up words instantly while you’re reading your ebooks. Simply tap and hold a word to view its definition or use the Google and Wikipedia links to get more information.
• Sync Your eBooks—The Kindle app lets you read the same book across devices and automatically syncs where you left off so you can start reading on one device and pick up where you left off on another device. The app syncs your furthest page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights between Android, PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, and any of our Kindle devices using our Whispersync technology.
• Sample Books Before You Buy—Read the first chapter of a book for free before you decide to buy.
• Customize Your Reading—Choose your preferred font size, screen brightness, background color, and orientation (portrait or landscape) to read your books.
• Borrow eBooks from the Library—Check out ebooks from your local library and have them delivered wirelessly to your Kindle app.

* Selection for U.S. users only; selection and price of ebooks and e-periodicals vary by country.

      Wonderful. Works perfectly and is a great alternative to Kobo (that is also very good)!

    Zinio works on my playbook, but the instructions are only about using keyboard and mouse. So I cannot enlarge the font size or zoom in on something. Can anyone please advise me how to get that done? Don't want to read with a microscope....

    Hi

    Many thanks to those who responded to my enquiry about installing Aldiko on my BP, I managed it by downloading Aldiko for Playbook and BB10 on my BP and then using DDPB to transfering it on my BP.

     Now for my 2nd problem. The version of Aldiko I have managed to install on my BP does not support Adobe DRM encrypted eBooks.Hence at the moment I can only borrow the encrypted books from the library (it does not support Overdrive) and read them on my HTC phone.  Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you

    I tried the Comixology app for playbook for the first time (Ver 3.3.0.25886) but when I run it I get a black screen and an error message: "The application Comics (process com.iconology.comics) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."  

    Have I done something wrong?

    I keep getting an error message when trying to open up a nook book.  The message says "Sorry, the application NOOK (process bn.ereader) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."  Each time I try, this problem pops up.  I've even tried restarting my playbook and have uninstalled the software and reinstalled it through my PC.

    just watched the tutorial on how to load good e reader tested apps to my playbook. Good tutorial but i have one question. Does the same process apply if your primary device is a MacBook Pro rather than a PC? IF not, can I download and use flipboard successfully directly to my playbook (from good e reader's playbook app website) or via my mac? thanks

    I have downloaded and installed JW reader with no problem. However after I open this app it give me a message after 10-15 sec. : "Download Days Text Failed". Not only that but also there is no Bible and the Magazines or only some of them can be downloaded in Epub format. The bottom row under Other Publications some of the books also can not be downloaded.

    Would you please help me with this

    I have installed both Feedly and Flipboard v2.2 on my Playbook 1 w/ OS v2.1.0.1526 and both are loading, but all I get is a black screen with the Feedly logo and the message 'feedly BETA' for Feedly, and a blank white screen with Flipboard. Both have the back arrow and Info box along the bottom, but no login or settings that I can find.

     

    I have the DDPB program installed and running fine, and Development Mode installed and running. I have also installed the HootSuite app which is working fine, so the basic setup works, thanks. It is probably something simple which I am missing for the Feedly and Flipboard apps, but I need both of them for work so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Why bother listing Feesdly when it crashes at the load screens? I appreciate what you guys do but the claim everything has been tested here is nonsense.

    I can use Kindle, Overdrive, Kobo, ZInio without issue, but can't get the 3M app to work. It is what my local library uses so I am stuck without it. Any ideas?

    I have downloaded the Kindle app, but for some reason it is eternally "checking [my device] for new items & syncing". only part of the app that works seems to be the home screen and store. Any ideas on why this might be happenning?

    I downloaded and installed the nook app for my Z10 without issue.  I was able to purchase and download a book through the app, but when I click on the book to read it the app states it has encountered a fatal error and needs to be shutdown.  Any ideas?  From previous post it looks like I am not the only one with this issue.

    I've downloaded eight apps for my playbook so far and have only one that hangs . I don't feel it's the apps fault since it does work at times. Thanks for your efforts. p.s. can you convert the app that enables Wisconsin Public Radio Moblie?

    Hey guys - thanks so much for providing this service!  Just wanted to drop a note that I'm having probs with the Nook app - I sideloaded it without a problem (Mac), I signed in, opened my library, but when I try to click on a book to read, the app has an error and shuts down.  It looks good other than that, except you can't actually open the book.  Any ideas?  

     

    I realize this may not be your issue, but may be inherent with the app, but if you have any ideas, would really appreciate it!  Thanks so much -
