Does anyone know if there is a Kindle app for Droid?
I believe at the current time there are only Kindle applications for the PC and for the iPhone.
You can convert Amazon DRM for Droid use
I am NOT advocating or supporting the illegal use, selling, or sharing of ebooks portected by DRM.
There are methods to remove the DRM signature on Amazon/Kindle books so that they can be converted for use by several ebook readers on the Droid.
Here is a link to a site with instructions. I use this to convert my Amazon purchased books for reading on my Droid.
Converting Kindle Books: a painful process that works for reading Kindle books without a Kindle - nyquil.org
As nice as the Droids screen is I can't see reading book on/with it. Especially if you have an e-reader. Battery life would be atrocious.
Let us know if the above works. Got some old Kindle books I could use as ref on my Droid.
FYI - the Nook is AWESOME.
Reading ebooks on the Droid does not kill the battery and the clear screen is easy to read.
using the display kills the battery... but you will see..
I used it on a cross-country flight (Philadelphia-Seattle) .... no problem.
Actually, its not that bad. I read for about 4 hours or so on the train, using alkido. I had the screen brightness on lowest and had night view on (white text on back background). Barely went to 50% from a full charge.
All in all, I do quite a bit of reading on my droid, mostly because its always with me. I always have a usb cable with me, and a zagg sparq, so batter life has never been an issue.
I use eReader on my phone pretty much every other day, but I don't notice it draining my phone any more than any other application.
I read using FBReader and Aldiko on my Droid all the time. Usually set to night mode with black background/white text. I don't notice a huge hit on the battery at all.
Thread title should have a question mark, not an exclamation point. :icon_evil:
The lack of a Kindle app on the Droid is the only reason I keep my iPod Touch charged & ready to go.
Agreed! My heart jumped when I saw the exclamation haha! I've been using Alkido since I got the phone.....it's ok, but not great.....was using mobipocket on my BB, which was nice b/c it showed how far I've read in hours (though the hours to read was an estimate, I'm guessing based on # of pages)......any other ereader do this?
I still don't see why Barnes & Noble haven't come out w/ an ereader for Android, I mean the Nook uses Android, you'd think it'd be an easy enough xfer!
