Re: cannot buy Kindle books using the Amazon app

2018-08-12 Thread Vicky Collins
 I'm kind of new to all this myself. But best I can tell, if you have a 
subscription to Kindle Unlimited, $9.99 a month in the United States, then you 
can download the books that are currently available through that program 
directly through the Kindle app. After all, grin, you would have paid your 
subscription to read them, or be on the 30 day trial as I am. Then too, and I 
found this out kind of by accident, but you can also download books available 
through the Prime Reading program directly through the Kindle app. The free 
Prime Reading option is a benefit given to Prime members. You aren't actually 
buying the books in both of these cases, you are just borrowing them, but there 
is no due date to return them. I don't know how many books you can borrow at a 
time with Prime Reading, but they say you can have as many as 10 at a time with 
Kindle Unlimited. Then once you return some or all of the books you borrowed, 
you are free to get more books. Since only certain books are available through 
these programs, and what's available may very well change from time to time, it 
is quite possible that the book you want to read may not be available through 
one or both of these programs. Then you would need to go to the web browser if 
you wanted to then purchase the book.

Although I passed on the Prime Day deals for it, I did decide to get the 30-day

Re: cannot buy Kindle books using the Amazon app

Here is how I buy Kindle books.  From the book: Kindle for iOS Accessibility 
Gestures - Quick Reference Guide

Kindle Store: Buy & Download to your iOS Device

You can shop from the Kindle Store using the Safari browser and deliver Kindle 
titles to the Kindle reading app on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Your 
device must be connected to a wireless or data network in order to download 
Kindle content to your Kindle reading app.

>From the Safari browser, visit the Kindle Store website:

· iPad: www.amazon.com/ipadkindlestore

· iPhone or iPod touch: www.amazon.com/kindlemobilestore

1. Sign in to the Kindle Store with the same Amazon account you used when you 
registered the Kindle reading app. Browse for Kindle titles you want to read, 
and then tap to view the product detail page.

2. To send the Kindle title to your device, from the Send wirelessly to 
drop-down menu, select your device. If you don't see your device, make sure you 
signed in with the Amazon account registered to your iPad, iPhone, or iPod 
touch.

3. Tip: Tap Try a Sample to download the beginning of a book for free.

4. After you purchase content, your titles are delivered to the Kindle app on 
your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Check your cloud tab.

As far as I've known, there hasn't been a button to purchase from the app ever. 
The issue is that if an app sells something, then Apple gets a portion, and so

I am sure Amazon would love to sell Kindle books through the Kindle and Amazon 
apps, but they aren't willing to pay Apple I think it is about30 percent. 
After all, Apple wants you to buy  and read  that book  through IBooks.

Re: cannot buy Kindle books using the Amazon app

2018-08-11 Thread Paul Ferrara
To be clear, I don’t mean the Kindle app but the regular Amazon shopping app 
where I can buy anything else from Amazon.
You have never been able to buy from the Kindle app; I mean the regular Amazon 
app where I could, but now can no longer, buy Kindle books.

As far as I've known, there hasn't been a button to purchase from the app ever. 
The issue is that if an app sells something, then Apple gets a portion, and so 
Amazon directs you to its website.

Exactly, I think this used to be possible, but no longer and not for a long 
time, same as Audible.
