Amazon Kindle for BlackBerry 10

Millions of books are now available on BlackBerry 10 via the World’s most popular e-reading platform – Amazon Kindle. This got me thinking – what do you call a bookworm for the digital age? Morris. Geek humor aside, this is one app launch that we’re particularly excited for.

I love to read and I’m thrilled that I can now carry all my books with me in the palm of my hand with my BlackBerry Z10. I can buy a book once and can read it anywhere. Plus with technology like Whispersync my bookmarks, notes and highlights sync across my account. The app also supports newspapers and magazines.

On top of that, here are some other features that make Kindle on BlackBerry 10 so handy:

  • Personalize – Adjust the text size, change the screen’s brightness, choose your background color, and read in either portrait or landscape mode.
  • Look Up Words – Tap and hold any word in a book to view the word’s definition with the built-in dictionary or use the Google or Wikipedia links to get more information.
  • Sample Books Before Buying – Easily shop for ebooks and read the first chapter for free before you decide to buy.
  • Bi-Lingual – Kindle is available in English and French.

The Amazon Kindle app for BlackBerry 10 is available in the BlackBerry World storefront as a free download. Let us know what ebook you’ll be curling up with tonight in the comments.


Please note the app may take up to 24 hours to appear in the BlackBerry World Storefront.

Still haven’t figured out the Book Worm joke?

    Hiya! The latest version of the Kindle app for BB10 just hit us last week and there’s a bug with the brightness. And we can’t located any actual brightness control in the app. See : http://forums.crackberry.com/blackberry-10-os-f269/kindle-blackberry-10-2-increased-display-brightness-865479/

    Not sure where to report this! Thanks!
