With summer here, you may find lots of quiet time to yourself as you may be off work. Use the time to sit down and relax with a new book – or an app to bring you a great new title.
There are lots of reading apps out there, but we find the Amazon Kindle to be amongst our favorite. The Amazon Kindle has been around since November 2007, and in addition to books, you can also find magazines and newspapers and in later versions, even check out Prime Video.
What Is This App About?
The Amazon Kindle is a series of e-readers designed and marketed by Amazon in 2007, when the first single device came out. This device allows users to browse, buy, download, and read e-books, newspapers, magazines, and other digital media.
This app can be accessed on multiple devices, including cell phones, tablets, and even computers. It is also available for iOS and Android devices. You can bring this app on the go with you and utilize it offline if you download the title.
What makes this unique is that everything is purchased through your Amazon account in the app. Once you have made the purchase, it will automatically appear in your app. In addition, Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Prime members can select and download Kindle books directly in the app.
Titles for books can range from $0.99 and up. The app is really organized and can be easily navigated, we found. There are endless genres to choose from, ranging from romance to mystery and beyond.
What To Expect
Gacrama says the most popular app is the Kindle because it’s free and easy to use. You must download it from your app store of choice and once downloaded, you can access any book available as an eBook through Amazon’s library.
“I picked this particular app because it’s the perfect app for readers as it contains all the books you can’t find on other e-readers and bookshelves,” Gacrama said. “It’s also easy to download and read, making it a great option if you’re trying to save space by only taking the essentials.”
Gacrama also says that with this app, they can read their books on the go and organize their titles by genre or author. This feature, Gacrama says, makes it easy for them to find what they’re looking for as quickly as possible.
“Another great feature of it is the built-in dictionary, which means that if you don’t know how to spell something, there’s an option built-in,” Gacrama said. “This is especially helpful when reading online since there’s no way around spell-check before publishing your manuscript.”
What Is Available In The Shop
Once you are inside the Amazon Kindle app, there are several categories to choose from – Kindle Daily Deals, Kindle Monthly Deals, Kindle Exclusive Deals, Kindle Countdown Deals, Start a new series, All Kindle deals, and Sign up for deals.
Each of these categories contains various deals for the avid reader.
Kindle Daily Deals often have titles that start at $0.99 and up, while the monthly deals offer sales up to 80% off on this month’s selection of top-rated Kindle books.
Kindle Exclusive Deals offers titles in three categories – $1 or less, $2 or less, and $3 or less.
There is also a much-larger list called 50 Kindle books for $2 or less. These titles vary and expire at the end of each calendar month.
Amazon even has exclusive books from their publishing arm that are available to borrow and read for free, like the 12 ebooks in Dean Koontz's serialized Nameless series that was recently optioned for a streaming show.
