Adding An Ebook Converted To .Mobi To Your Android Kindle App

google android logoReading Your .Mobi
Kindle File On Android

The Amazon Kindle’s .mobi is one of the fastest growing ebook formats due to the rapid growth of both Kindle readers and the Kindle ebook application that runs on just about anything. 

If you have a .mobi Kindle file on your computer, that you either got as part of an ebook download/purchase or that you created by converting a PDF to .mobi… getting it onto your android phone or table is easy. 

There’s a number of reasons you’d want to convert your PDF even though Kindle can read them, particularly if you are working with a smaller device. 

To get your .mobi file into the Kindle app on Android, first connect your android phone by USB to your computer and mount the SD card.

Once you’re browsing the SD card from your computer, find the folder named “Kindle” and open it.

Copy/Paste your new .Mobi(s) into that folder.  If you have a cover image that belongs to the .mobi file, you can copy it into the “covers” folder that is inside the “kindle” folder.

Open the Kindle App and your file should be ready to go and waiting “on your device”. 

Simple, clean and efficient. A great way to make those clunky PDF eBooks perfect for reading on any small device!
