Trying to download a Kindle app for my iPad but it says I have to go to Canadian site. So, I transferred my Amazon account to the Canadian site, found the Canadian link to the Kindle App (in the App store) and it took me the American Kindle App which it won't let me download because I need to be on the Canadian site. See the vicious circle here? Any tips or information for me?

You can get the Kindle reading app from, might be less of a hassle than what Amazon is putting you through. Since you're in Canada, Amazon won't actually let you buy or download any apps, you need to be in the US with a US credit card, although you'd think they'd make an exception for the Kindle app. is a great source for android apps.

ETA: Disregard, I missed that you're talking about an iPad. You need to get the Kindle app from iTunes.

L. Eno - Just download the Kindle for iPad app from iTunes and install it.

If it was so easy. It says I have to go to the Canada site to do this and then the Canada site pops me back to the US app. Unless...iTunes is different from the app store. This is for an iPad by the way, not android.

We know that you're talking about the iPad. That's why Pineapple suggested getting the Kindle app from the iTunes Store.

Leno - iTunes is different. Try downloading it from there.

OK, so I see that I can bring in a Kindle app from iTunes on a laptop computer but not on the iPad directly - for some reason it doesn't show in the iTunes store. So what I think I have to do is download the app to the laptop and then sync. Is this correct?

The Kindle app is the first app on the left that I find when I search iTunes in Canada for "Kindle". For an iPad, you would search the app store, and install. It is a free app.

No, you can't install from the app store anymore. (I did do this with my first iPad - no problem) Now when you try, the procedure that I outlined above happens. It says you have to go to the Canada site. The Canada site sends you to the US Kindle app in the app store. A Catch-22 situation. We'll try through iTunes on the laptop to see if it works any better.

Hmmm, that does seem odd and frustrating. Let us know what works for you...

It worked. Once the iTunes app came in on the laptop, it appeared on the iPad. Thanks so much, you bunch of smartie pants.

Good news, Leno. Happy reading :)
