Amazon Kindle is the most advanced book-reading app for iOS

The app offers advanced features, such as X-Ray reference tool, Page Flip in-book navigation, access to library ebooks, or Send to Kindle iOS Share Menu button.

Kindle for iOS is one of these iOS ebook readers you have probably tried already.

Everyone who owns a Kindle e-reader or Fire tablet downloads this app to the iPhone and iPad, just to compare the performance and interface, test common features, and decide whether the iOS powered device could become a default reading tool.

The app is constantly improving, keeping up with upgrades of the iOS, but – most importantly – improvements of the Amazon ebook-reading ecosystem.

Kindle is the most advanced book-reading app in the App Store. It offers features you already know, such as X-Ray reference tool, Page Flip in-book navigation, access to library ebooks, or Send to Kindle iOS Share Menu button.

On top of that, Kindle for iOS is now extremely well-connected to Amazon’s subscription-based services:

  • Kindle Unlimited ($9.99-per-month unlimited access to over 1 ebooks, comic books, and magazines).
  • Prime Reading (a part of Amazon Prime – gives free access to a rotating list of over 1,000 ebooks and magazines).

My favorite feature of the app is Whispersync for Voice. With it, reading an ebook and listening to an audiobook is not “either or” any longer.

Whispersync for Voice technology lets you seamlessly switch between reading a Kindle ebook and listening to its audiobook version. All happens in a few taps! Even better, you can continue digesting the book at the location where you left off.
