Read Anywhere, Everywhere

I’ll tell you why having a Kindle or buying Kindle ebooks can give you the freedom of reading !

Do you know you can read Kindle ebooks without actually having a Kindle? Well, it’s true, you can, but what’s the fun in that?

As I said, there is basically a Kindle reading app for each and every popular computer or mobile devices you can think of, and they’re all FREE ! Here’s the list of devices you can read on.

Also, if you use a public computer or in some situation, you can’t or don’t want to install an app on the computer, Amazon’s Cloud Reader let you read right there on the web browser. It only supports Chrome and Safari right now, but both browser are free to download anyway. Nothing stops you from reading !

You buy books once, you can read them anywhere you like. All bookmarks, highlights and notes you make are always in-sync. Whispersync takes care of that for you automatically in the background (you need to be connected to the Internet of course).

Tips: Launch Browser Shortcut

Amazon puts web browser in Experimental page, which, I think, is kind of tiring to launch it. Every time you want to go to the browser, you have to press Home, press Menu, go all the way down to Experimental, and Launch Browser! :mad:

Thank God ! we have Launchpad, it basically let you set a shortcut for everything.

It is a jailbreak tweak, so you have to jailbreak you Kindle first. Read my How-To here, if you don’t know how, it’s not gonna take longer than 5 minutes. And then install Launchpad using the same instruction you install jailbreak.

And finally, put this INI file, in the launchpad folder on your Kindle drive.

Now every time you want to open the browser, all you have to do is press Shift + B, and launchpad will do the rest.Copy to LaunchpadDownload Launchpad installer

Hold “Menu” and “Keyboard” buttons at the same time and release.

You’ll find a new screenshot in Kindle’s documents folder. :smile:
