A word on Kindle

AvailableOn.AmazonKindleExperience Skype to the Max is a Kindle eBook; however, you do not need a Kindle device to read it. Kindle also provides free Kindle Reader applications for iOS (iPhone, iPad), Android (phones and tablets), BlackBerry 10 (via the Amazon App Store), Windows and Mac.

Kindle is going through a format change to provide authors with more flexibility for layout, graphics and formatting bullets. The new Kindle Fire 8 (KF8) format is now available on all Kindle PC clients and Kindle applications for smartphones.

The eBook looks best on a 10” or larger colour display using the new KF8 format where graphics can be embedded into paragraphs.

The preferred devices are:

  • Kindle Fire (currently only available in the U.S.)
  • Kindle for Android, iOS on tablets and smartphones

Kindle Format 8
Kindle Fire, Kindle for Android, Kindle for iOS, Kindle for Windows, Kindle for Mac
Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Basic


Of course it can also be read on the other devices listed below but either “black and white” or the smaller screen size is a compromise when it comes to viewing the some of the graphics in the book. On the other hand the content is all there and you can adjust the font size to make the text easily readable to suit your situation.

  • Kindle Basic or Paperwhite (high contrast; b&w)
  • Kindle Touch (WiFi or 3G models; no longer available)
  • Kindle Fire HD  and HDX tablets (color)
