Take your Kindle books with you
The Kindle app is available for most major smartphones, tablets and computers. That means with our free Kindle reading apps, you can buy a Kindle book once and read it on any device with the Kindle app installed*. You can also read that same Kindle book on a Kindle device if you own one.
Sync to the furthest read page
With Amazon's Whispersync technology, you can automatically save and sync your furthest page read, bookmarks, notes and highlights across all your devices. That means you can start reading a book on one device, and pick up where you left off on another device.
