Already have a Kindle? Whispersync technology syncs your last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across various devices.
Kindle for Android offers a number of features that take you beyond the standard reading experience. Access the table of contents through the menu button, and jump quickly to any section of the book. Search for words or phrases within the book, and look up words on Wikipedia or Dictionary.com right from the page.
Easy on the eyes–and the fingers
There are five adjustable font sizes to suit your reading preference. You can increase the text size of your favorite book with the push of a button. If your eyes tire, simply increase the font size and continue reading comfortably. There are also three different background color options: white, black, and sepia. Read in portrait or landscape mode, and lock the screen in the orientation you prefer. Turn pages with a flick of the touchscreen or simply tap on either side of the page to move through the text.
Annotations and automatic bookmarking
By using your phone’s keypad, you can add annotations to text, just like you might write in the margins of a book. And because it is digital, you can edit and delete your notes. You can highlight and clip key passages and bookmark pages for future use. You’ll never need to bookmark your last place in the book, because Kindle remembers for you and always opens to the last page you read.
Read everywhere with Whispersync
Kindle for Android makes it more convenient than ever to bring Kindle books everywhere you go–even if you don’t have a Kindle. Whispersync ensures you’ll never lose your place by allowing you to sync bookmarks, last page read, notes, and highlights between all of your Kindle-ready devices.
