Editors' Note: The "Download Now" link will take you to the Amazon Kindle Web site, where you can scan a QR code to download the app. It is also available in the Android Market app on your Android phone.
Amazon Kindle provides you with a huge array of e-books, magazines, and more that can be synced to multiple devices via cloud storage. The newest additions to the e-book reader application are somewhat small but helpful; however, more personalization options are still needed.
Superb e-book reader: Amazon Kindle's reader now offers multiple highlighter colors, following the recent update and also offers a very helpful copy/paste function. Navigating books is very easy with the reader's sidebar menu that allows you to jump from chapter to chapter. Font size and page design can be manipulated to ensure the best readability possible.
Excellent organization: Downloaded texts are neatly stored in the Kindle application and are helpfully arranged by title, author name, or most recently read. This is very helpful for those that have large libraries of purchases.
Enormous library: Amazon Kindle offers you hundreds of thousands of texts for download, so you will never get tired of this application. Many full-length books and magazines are offered for free as well.
Few personal options: While the Kindle e-book reader can be customized extensively, the application itself cannot be changed in the slightest. A dark color scheme that can be difficult to see is the only option available, so you may be displeased with the lack of control you have over Kindle.
Very few applications give you all the features provided by Amazon Kindle. The e-book reader and library of books can easily be labeled the best on the market. We recommend downloading Amazon Kindle because very few applications on the market are as expansive and sturdy as Kindle.
