I liked it because it tells you everything you need to know about kindle for iOS devices.. I recommend it for the iOS users who recently updated the kindle app for their iOS devices as it will make it easier to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and Concise May 1, 2013

This is an informative quick guide to advise on how best to use with VoiceOver. I'm still trying to figure out how to read continuously without having to manually switch pages but that might be a local setting here I'm not aware of. This is brand new to me as VoiceOver compatibility for reading Kindle content has just come out. This is an excellent intro/reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars complete guide to speech April 28, 2014

They admit to the systems complexity and after pages of illustrated, details for accessibility use, the system can be gradually understood. The conclude by exclaiming, "when figure out an easer way, we will let you know!" Could not advise them who better to explain the touch system.

2.0 out of 5 stars not clearly explained April 13, 2014

This manual describes iOS gestures but does not really describe the kindle app or what any of the icons in the kindle app represent. It is pure text; some illustrations would have been helpful.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's ok March 22, 2014

Actually didn't really give me any more information than what I already knew from just playing around with the app itself. Still it's free so if you do download it it's not like you are out anything.

Kindle, why isn't there an easier option for you to read to me? At any rate, this book does what it says it will do.
