Note: Your iPhone and iPad automatically prompt you to use apps if you have them. However, you should ignore these prompts since you cannot use the Amazon or Kindle apps to purchase books.

Any time you use a website for an app you have, your iPhone or iPad will keep prompting you to use the app instead. If you accidentally navigate to the Amazon or Kindle app and try to purchase the book, you will see the message, "This app does not support purchasing of this content. Digital books and comics purchased from Amazon are available to read in the Kindle app." If this happens, just navigate back to Safari. Also, if you have trouble downloading a book due to storage limits, you can also learn how to manage your iCloud storage.

I get tired of having to buy Kindle e-books by navigating to the Amazon site through Safari. If you want to find an easy way to buy Kindle books on your iPad or iPhone, there's a shortcut. To learn more iPhone tricks, sign up for our free Tip of the Day newsletter.

Apple collects a percentage of the money spent on digital purchases within the apps on its devices, but when you buy Kindle books on iPhone or iPad using Safari or another web browser, 100 percent of the money goes to Amazon. So the answer to the questions, why can't I buy books on Kindle app and why can't I buy Kindle books on Amazon app is: Amazon doesn't want to pay.

This battle over in-app purchase commissions is why you can't buy a Kindle book after the sample and why you can't buy a Kindle book in the Amazon app on iPhone or iPad. It's also why it's only possible to buy and download Kindle books on your iPhone or iPad or access the Kindle store from your iPhone using a web browser and not the app.

Now get to reading! If you plan to buy more Kindle books on your iPhone or iPad in the future, I highly recommend that you create a shortcut to the Amazon store from your iPhone or iPad Home screen. Next, learn how to delete books from your Kindle app. If you're trying to read books and find your iPad is lagging, check out these handy tips to uncover why your iPad is so slow. If you're still stuck deciding whether a Kindle or iPad is right for your e-reading needs, check out our Kindle vs. iPad article.

There was probably a time when your home was brimming with bookshelves, stuffed to the gills with novels you have already read or yet plan to read. These days, a single Kindle can clear out all that clutter, putting virtually every book you could want to read in the palm of your hands.

Your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch can let you video chat with someone on the other side of the world, identify and then tell you all about each pinprick of light in the night sky, and create astonishing works of art; and so we sometimes forget that you can use it to read books.

Here, we'll take you on a guided tour of the options you have for reading books on iOS, making sure you spend your money wisely, and helping you discover great places from which to stock your virtual shelves. We'll make sure you understand the different formats, how to take advantage of reading ebooks, and give you tips on getting the most from your reading, wherever you are.

One decision might be made for you; unless you're in the US, there's currently no practical way to buy books for the Barnes & Noble Nook. You could muck about with proxies or vouchers or a willing stooge in the States, but we don't really think it's worth the hassle. The Nook is likely to come to the UK this year, but until then, those of us outside the US should buy from Apple and Amazon.

An obvious differentiator is price. Even if, by the end of this page, you've decided to buy most of your books for Amazon Kindle, say, you should still have a shop around to see where a book you want is cheapest.

Overall, it's been our experience that Apple is the most expensive of the big three stores and Amazon the cheapest, but the difference is often negligible; at the time of writing, a selection of 10 books from the New York Times best-seller list in total cost $13.23 more on iBooks than on Kindle, a difference of only 15%.

Because Apple insists on taking a 30% cut from anything sold inside apps (and doesn't even allow, say, the Kindle app a button that says "Buy books" that launches its online store in Safari), on most reading apps on iOS you have to buy books through a web browser; this unlocks them for your account and then you download and read them through an app.

Apple, of course, can do things a bit differently, and there's a Store button right at the top of your bookshelf. This makes it just a little simpler to buy from, you do it all from inside one app; but it would be shortsighted to opt for iBooks as a platform just because it took a couple of taps fewer to buy a new book.

iBooks' second advantage is that publishers can create much richer books, with videos, interactivity and more, using Apple's free iBooks Author app, and you can only read these in the iBooks app; there are relatively few such books around, but they're likely to become more common.

Think about the supported devices too. Sure, since you're reading Tap!, you probably care most about compatibility with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and all three stores have Universal apps that work on all devices, but because every store wraps their books in Digital Rights Management gunk that means you can only read them on officially sanctioned devices, it's wise to plump for a store that has as broad a range of apps and services as possible.

The big loser here is iBooks. It only has apps for iOS; you can't even read your books on a Mac. In the middle is Barnes & Noble, which makes apps for Android, Mac and PC as well as iOS and its own hardware readers. Amazon gets it most right. As well as supporting everything that Barnes & Noble does, it also has apps for Blackberry and Windows Phone, and you can even go to to access your library through a web browser.

Ultimately, then, our recommendation is to go with Amazon. The choice is superb, prices competitive, and there's scarcely a device around on which you cannot read its books. Yes, ideally, books would be completely free of DRM and the latter reasons wouldn't figure in any decision, but that's not the situation we're in now!

You don't need a Kindle to access Amazon's vast library of ebooks. With an Amazon account and the Kindle app, you can buy, download, and read all your favorite books right on your iPhone or iPad. Let's show you how.

But if you want to read Kindle books on your iPhone, you need to buy the books and get them installed on your iPhone first. This isn't quite as straightforward as it might seem, because you can't purchase books using the iPhone Kindle app, or even the Amazon app.

Instead, you need to buy your Kindle books in a web browser. You can do that in a browser on your computer, or using the Safari app on your iPhone. It doesn't matter where you buy the book, since it'll be available in every Kindle app and device that's signed into the Amazon account you used to buy the book.

Formerly known as iBooks, the Apple Books app is the all-in-one book store and reading application for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. You can use it to read ebooks and listen to audiobooks, but before you can do that, you need to know how to find and download books in Apple Books.

We'll show you how to do exactly that below and explain everything from page-swiping behaviors, highlighting, and searching within books to navigating the Book Store to find your next favorite title. Read on for all the details.

You can access any book on your device by tapping the Library tab. You can also use the Reading Now tab to continue with the book you're currently reading, resume other books you've recently been reading, and recommendations for books based on what you've bought before.

Books that you've downloaded but haven't finished are automatically added to the Want to Read list. In addition, you can add other books to this collection. Here's how to do it when browsing the Book Store.

Although Amazon says that you can buy your Audible books on mobile devices or computers, that doesn't mean you can purchase Audible books through the Audible app for iOS. It's really inconvenient and frustrating that you can't purchase in-app, but there are still ways to buy Audible books on an iPhone. In this article, you'll learn how to buy Audible books on an iPhone or iPad.

A: All digital products, such as music, game credits, and books, purchased via the App for iOS, must be charged through the Apple Store payment system, which includes a 30% fee to Apple. To avoid the margin cut by Apple, Audible chooses to make their audiobook content unavailable for purchase via the Audible app for iOS directly on the iPhone.

Maybe there are too many complaints about the inconvenience that purchasing kindle books via browser on iphone, finally Amazon allows users to buy audible book directly in Audible app with Credit. If you have no credits in your audible account, please buy audible books via browser.

To purchase new books for the Barnes & Noble NOOK App for both iOS and Android, visit in your device's web browser (Safari/Chrome or other) or on a desktop/laptop computer. eBooks purchased on will automatically sync to your NOOK Library.

An EPUB (.epub) file is a universal ebook standard. While it helps to have some technical know-how when working with EPUBs, there are a number of tools available to create and deliver book files in the EPUB format to Apple Books. You can create EPUB files with Pages or other third-party tools, or work with an Apple-preferred partner who can help you get your books on Apple Books.

Created in iBooks Author and specifically designed for Apple devices, Multi-Touch books (.ibooks) provide numerous possibilities to interact with the reader through photo galleries, videos, interactive diagrams, 3D objects, quizzes, and more.
