Kindle App – setup

Students – you will be receiving [if you haven’t already received it!] an email with your kindle account information.

Here is how to setup the Kindle app on your iPad.


 

IF YOU HAVE NEVER SET UP THE KINDLE APP BEFORE:

• Open up the app. You should see this screen:

Kindle start

• Type in the account info given to you in the email, and login.

• You might have to click the “sync” button, at the bottom of the screen, to get the material to download:

IF YOU ALREADY SETUP YOUR KINDLE APP WITH A DIFFERENT ACCOUNT:

You will have to “deregister” the app. This will NOT delete whatever you have purchased from Amazon – those items are still “in the cloud”, inside your Amazon account. They will just disappear from your iPad. Here’s how:

• Fire up the Kindle App.

• Click the Settings icon:

settings kindle icons

 

•  Click “Update”, next to your email address:

settings kindle

 

 

•  Then click the “Deregister” button.

You should be taken to the beginning screen, where you can add your MDS kindle account information.
