No longer is the ownership of a Kindle necessary in order for users to take advantage of all the media options Kindle offers. Now, thanks to the Kindle app for Android and iOS, which utilizes Whispersync technology, users of Android and iOS smartphones & tablets are able to enjoy the same media access and sharing advantages that were previously only available to those who owned a Kindle device.
What does the Android Kindle App do?
The Kindle app gives you instant access to millions of books, magazines, newspapers and other media, all in high resolution and brilliant colour.
You can access everything from free, full length masterpieces at the Kindle store, to contemporary bestsellers, to popular periodicals. In addition, the app also provides the other benefits of Kindle devices, including browser access through Google, as well as Wikipedia and dictionary access, which means you can learn more about what you’re reading with just a simple tap of your figure on the touchscreen.

What else can you do with the Android Kindle App?
The accessibility of media is just the beginning with the Kindle App. There’s so much more that comes with this innovation. Here are a few of the highlights.
Customize Your Reading Experience
Customizable settings allow you to set the screen appearance, including font size, background, brightness and layout or orientation for your ebooks and other reading.
The Kindle Android app with Whispersync technology allows you to sync your devices to allow for smooth transition from one device to another without missing a single word of what you’re reading. The sync feature lets you leave off reading anywhere on any of your synched devices and pickup reading from the same page on any other synched device.
With the Kindle Android app you can sample ebooks and other media before you commit to buy, which most ebooks providing you access to as much as the first chapter without requiring payment.
Is This Kindle App for Every Reader?
To be honest we couldn’t find anything to fault it on either testing device (Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Acer Iconia A500) however having never used it on the Kindle reader itself we probably weren’t set up for a fall when using this Android version.
If you head over to Google Play you will find people who aren’t at all happy with the Kindle app, with some people saying they have trouble with Syncing, Force closing, No categories to organize your collection in & more!
So is it for every reader? Well the answer is anyone’s guess, we suggest you give it a try, in our experience many of the issues experienced by people can be device specific (Depends on your Smartphone) I’m sure the publisher “Amazon Mobile LLC” will be paying close attention!
