Browsing and Finding Kindle Books
Once you have the Kindle app and an Amazon account set up, you’re ready to browse and find Kindle books to purchase. Here’s how to do it:
- Open the Kindle app on your iPhone.
- Tap on the “Store” button in the bottom right corner of the screen.
- Browse the available categories or use the search bar at the top of the screen to find a specific book.
- When you find a book you’re interested in, tap on its cover to view its details, including its price.
- You can also tap the “Sample” button to download a free sample of the book to see if you like it before purchasing.
Once you’ve found a book you want to buy, you can move on to the next step to complete the purchase.
Purchasing Kindle Books on your iPhone
Now that you’ve found a Kindle book you want to buy, here’s how to complete the purchase on your iPhone:
- Tap on the book’s cover to view its details.
- Tap the “Buy now with 1-Click” button if you want to purchase the book with your default payment method.
- If you want to use a different payment method, tap the “Buy now” button instead, and then select the payment method you want to use.
- If you haven’t already, you’ll be prompted to sign in to your Amazon account to complete the purchase.
- Once you’ve signed in and selected your payment method, tap the “Buy now” button to complete the purchase.
The book will then be automatically downloaded to your Kindle app, and you can start reading it right away.
Syncing your Kindle Books across Devices
One of the benefits of buying Kindle books on your iPhone is that you can easily sync them across all of your devices that have the Kindle app installed. Here’s how to do it:
- Make sure you’re signed in to the same Amazon account on all of your devices.
- Open the Kindle app on each device and make sure it’s connected to the internet.
- The books you’ve purchased should automatically sync to each device. If they don’t, try manually syncing the app by tapping on the “Sync” button in the bottom right corner of the screen.
- Once the books are synced, you can start reading them on any of your devices, and your progress will be saved across all of them.
This is a great feature if you like to switch between devices while reading or if you want to continue reading on a different device without losing your place in the book.
