    Are kindle books readable in iPad? I see certain books I like to buy from Amazon, but they only have kindle editions. Thank you.

    Amazon has a free Kindle app, available from the App Store. You can read your Kindle books in the app on your iPad.

    Yep. I have the Kindle app on the iPad and my iPhone. I rarely, if ever use iBooks or any other reader since my collection of mobi ebooks is up over 400.

    I have a Kindle paper white as well as the kindle app on my iPad and iPhone. I love it on all devices! And the neat thing is that it syncs between devices and remembers the last page read. You will love it!

    I'm glad we could help. There are also quite a few free ebooks available from Amazon, mostly classics.

    May be I can help you there. Our library loans ebooks in both Kindle format and in epub format for use with the free Overdrive app.

    Mine isn't syncing "last page" and not all books on my Kindle appear in the iPad's kindle app - some do and some don't. I could understand, in theory, if none appeared but I'm puzzling over why it is some and not all that do not - what am I doing wrong?

    Is there a setting I've overlooked or is there possibly some corruption which would necessitate a delete and reinstall on the iPad?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.
