Smile Move mobi files to kindle app

Hi.
You cant actually move the files but you can get them on to your kindle app.

When you have your ipad connected to your mac on itunes go to the apps tab at the top of the screeen.

Scroll down the list of apps until you get to a list of apps under, file sharing.

Click on the kindle app and then click add.
Find the files you want to add and click on them then click open and they will appear on you kindle app on your ipad.

Hope this works for you, I have lots of books which I have added this way and have had no problems. i even get the covers appearing as well.

All the best with this.

The problem with this is that it puts your MOBI format files into the docs area and not the books area. Why is this important, you say? If it happens to be a special format epub file, such as a comic book format that allows you to view and enlarge individual sections of the document, it will not work if it thinks it's a doc (like a PDF or other such format). Please correct me if I'm wrong and please tell me how I can transfer the MOBI format file into the BOOKS area and not the DOCS area.

You can... and everything you just said is 100% wrong.

1. You can email books to your Amazon "Send to device" email address.
2. You can use iTunes to transfer directly into the Kindle app.
3. You can use any app which recognises mobi and has an "open with" option (Eg. Many, many many apps).

The only thing more astounding than how wrong you are is the conviction with which you posted your incorrect response.

My mind is blown.

You replied to posts that are over 4 years old. No wonder your mind was blown.
