You may have seen people with a Kindle device reading their favourite books at a café or on a train, but you can do can do the same with the Kindle app on your smartphone.
The app enables you to access over 750,000 books in Amazon’s Kindle Store, which can then be read directly from your Windows Phone.
There are free classic books and one chapter samples, but the real draw of the service is the best sellers and new releases that are available for immediate download at a reasonable price.
The colour display of the smartphone, as opposed to the black and white display of the regular Kindle, means that you can choose background colours.
Amazon’s Whispersync technology also means that no matter what devices you read the books on, your last page read and bookmarks are automatically synced.
Pros: A huge selection of books.
Cons: You’ll find yourself longing for a bigger reading area than a smartphone.
Verdict: The huge selection of books available makes this a must have.
