    How does this work with updates? Do you have to manually uninstall and reinstall?

    Amazon doesn’t distribute other ebook apps, including the Aldiko Book Reader app, on Kindle Fire, therefore, unfortunately you would need to update the Aldiko Book Reader app on your Kindle Fire manually.

    download it via the app store

    Our design for the Aldiko Book Reader is to store books in external storage. The application will tell the device to save books in external storage. However, it will depend on how the device defining external storage. We have noticed that some devices set aside part of the internal memory as external storage purpose. In this case, even the Aldiko Book Reader asks the device to save books in external storage, books will still be saved in the part of internal memory that serves as external storage purpose.

    Is there anyway to change how it looks on the fire? Nothing seems to scale well on the epubs I have. Looks pretty bad.

    For ePub files, you can adjust text size under “Settings”, which is in the overlay menu options.

    Perfect, set it to publisher default and all looks great. Thanks!

  • Allyson Jardine

    Could you tell me how to find the overlay menu. Is it the Kindle Fire one? If so where are the settings? Thanks.

    Thank you so much for the information! I’d read this was the best app for reading Project Gutenberg books on my Kindle Fire, but couldn’t figure out how to download the app.
