Today I purchased an audible book for my Kindle, however, I wondering if I can also have the Kindle audible book on the Ipad. Does the Kindle Ipad app allow audible books to be downloaded on the Ipad? If this feature is not currently available, will it it be in the future?

The Ipad should have a audio player on it. You don't need the Kindle app to play the audio book.

You can't do it in the kindle app. There is a separate audible app for audible audiobooks on iPad/iPhone. Alternatively you can download the audio books to your computer and transfer them via iTunes.

I though that the Kindle app could handle audible audio books. So there is an app for audible books and ITunes will transfer it to the Ipad. Okay, I think I understand.... Thanks.... Pat

There are audio-enhanced Kindle books that can be read via the Kindle app, but books from Audible are actually audio books (think music files) to be listened to. Audible has a great app in the iTunes store that will list all your book purchases-super easy to use.

I have two Kindles on the same account (2nd & 3d generation). I would like to give my daughter one of my Kindles. Is there a way I can do this that will not allow her to make further purchases? Then, she would only have access to books that I've already purchased and are on the Kindle. She would not be able to make additional purchases on her Kindle. To add more books to her Kindle, I would probably have to make the purchase on my Kindle. Do I simply modify my account name on her Kindle to prevent her from buying without my approval?

Richard, you could just tell her not to order without permission. If you give her the K2, you could deregister it, and she wouldn't be able to order, and the K2 has no WiFi, so she couldn't use it away from home.

Go to and download the iPhone app. There's not a specific iPad app (yet) but the help site says that the iPhone app will work.

If you use iTunes on your computer you could also download your Audible content on the computer (there's a plugin for PC, works natively on Mac) and load into iTunes.

How do you listen to an audio enhanced kindle book on an iPad? The new app gave no indication.

Certain places in the book will show a symbol to play audio. Tap on that, and you will get the audio.

I've checked out audiobooks from my local library via Overdrive and listened to them on my iPad.

If you have a Kindle Fire, go to the amazon app store and download the app.
