Info updated on:

Buy a book once and read it on any of your devices. Recognize the eBook file format and automatically set the parameters for the display of pages, browsing, etc. Customize backgrounds, fonts, sizes, scrolling speeds, interaction with links, and the display of images.

Kindle is a program that enables you to read the eBooks you bought or downloaded from Amazon. This capable utility allows you to look through your favorite eBooks, add annotations to the documents, sort them into collections, bookmark pages, and much more.

You have access to various reading options which help you enjoy your experience more. For instance, you can change the font size, opt for another background image (black, white or sepia), and choose the amount of words per line.

Another aspect I like is that you can take notes for certain paragraphs and sync them across your media devices (for instance, iPhone). What's more, you can copy text content to clipboard and paste it within other third-party apps.

The application provides you with direct access to the homepage of Amazon from where you can purchase or download eBooks. Once the transaction or download process is complete, you can start reading the eBooks using the Kindle program.

All in all, Kindle utility developed by Amazon is a simple and efficient solution for reading and organizing eBooks. In addition, it comes without a price tag.

I was having difficulty with the app, so I called AmAZON and got through to supoort but spent 3 hours on the phone and got nowhere, the support person handed me off to someone that didn’t know anything about the app (he didn’t believe it was written at Amazon). I hung up in disgust as he did not know anything and kept insisting that the challenge prompt was a request for a password - it wasn’t The software is at best buggy and yes its free but if it doesn’t work then why buy a reader?

I can't call this application a very important one, but it may be useful if your Kindle is not working for some reason or is not with you at the moment. I guess it deserves a try.

Yes it is important as the screens are two small and essentially unreadable by us older folks.
