How to Install Kindle for Blackberry (Step by Step)

Kindle Fire

Kindle for Blackberry: Your Kindle Fire works great as an Amazon shopping device, but sometimes you've got a few books or apps that you want to read from places outside of the Kindle ecosystem. I've got loads of eBooks I've legally obtained through bookstores, and I'd rather keep track of them all through my Kindle library. If you're among those people, you can get those books onto your blackberry in no time. Here are some tips to do so.

File Formats for Kindle Fire

The first thing you need to figure out is the format. Amazon Kindle usually reads .mobi files. However, if you have a book in ePub format, you can even read it, but for that, you'll either need to change it using a program like Calibre or by connecting to a separate eReader, like the Kobo or Nook app. If you go the separate eReader route, you do miss out on the ease of having everything in a single library.

Files Transferring Via Email

You can also send your Kindle files as attachments using email. However, for that the files must be in among the supported file formats, and they'll be included to the Documents part of your Kindle. To set this up, you need to log into your Amazon account and click on Manage Your Kindle. After that, click on Personal Document Settings. You'll be required to set up the authorized email address and account. Usually it will be like "" Here, one thing to remember is that only emails from approved email addresses will work.

Transferring Your Files by USB

If you are using a micro-usb link and link it to your computer, you can move files to and from your Kindle much the same as it was an external hard drive. Put any .mobi formatted file in the Books folder, and copy .pdf and different formats in the Documents folder. When you've included your documents, you may need to restart the Kindle to get it to identify your new books.

Transferring Using Dropbox

Normally, I don't prefer to tinker with connecting my Kindle to my computer, so I try using Dropbox to both store my library and transfer my eBooks to my gadgets.

Select either Books (for .mobi records) or Documents (for .pdf, .txt, .doc, and different documents). Now Tap Export.

When you've done this, you must restart your Kindle Fire. Your books will show up after that. If your book does not appear, double check that you held up for the book to completely copy to your Kindle's hard drive and carefully watch that you picked the right organizer for the file format.
