2 ways to read Kindle books on iPad

Posted by on .

We cannot deny that Kindle is sort of the symbol of eBook nowadays, especially they have enhanced their eco-system with so many advanced but cheap gadgets and powerful assistant apps like Send to Kindle. But nothing is perfect in the world, we can still find some cons of Kindle. For instance: We can only read the books from Amazon, the limited web access, poor refresh rate, etc.

Plan A: Install Kindle iPad app for reading

This method is the simpler one, in another word, it's the less capable one.

Why I say "less capable"? Because with this method you are still bonded with Amazon Kindle store, and the Kindle for iPad app is far away from being GOOD to meet our reading demands.

We can't transfer downloaded books to this app with iTunes but only Send to Kindle, it can't read ePub books, it doesn't have a built-in dictionary and we have to manually download one, there is no text to speech function, and so on.

Plan B: Convert Kindle books to ePub with Epubor Ultimate then read on iPad

Why we should convert Kindle books to ePub then read on iPad? Because:

  • We can have more choices over Amazon Kindle store
    iPad's screen size is more friendly to PDF files and books with lots of elegant images
    We can use the more beautiful and capable iBooks app to read eBooks
    If we can read Kindle books on iPad, then it's easy to share it with our friends
    And more...

5Read the book on iPad and get most of an eBook

I strongly recommend you use iBooks app to read ePub on iPad as it is definitely the best reading app on iPad. And in fact, Apple's official apps are almost always the best in its area, and yes, not including Apple Maps.
