Erudite – Read Kindle books on the Nokia N9 and N950
Mike @ 11:48 am


Erudite makes it possible to use Amazon’s Cloud Reader service under MeeGo. You can either read books online, or download them for reading offline. Your progress in a book is kept synchronised between your N9 and other Kindle devices.

  3. Thank you very much for this app – it is surprisingly useable once the font size is increased, especialy with the volume keys controlling the page turns

    a Kindle app was always a regretfully missing app on the N9 for me and I am amazed that you managed to make it happen!

    Thanks Again!

  5. Why is it if you type in “Firestarter” in Nokia Store “Search” nothing is found, although if you go to “Entertainment” it is “top” of the bestsellers? Brilliant app by the way!

  6. aspergerguy – Glad you’re enjoying the app. Unfortunately Nokia don’t appear to be updating their search indexes for new apps in the store at the moment, I contacted them about it but just got a fairly stock response telling me that I needed to wait a couple of days for them to update.

    Hopefully they’ll fix this soon, although I saw a mention on talk.maemo.org that seemed to suggest this has been going on for a few months now.

  7. Great app! This reduces my shopping list 🙂
    One thing. I have other country’s amazon account and now I cannot access books I downloaded/bought with that account as this app only allow to see US(?) amazon 🙁 Is this known problem?
    Thanks a lot again!

  8. Hi Mit,

    In theory it should work with accounts from most Amazon sites (personally I use it via an amazon.co.uk account), and for most people there isn’t a problem. I’m wondering if you also have a separate account setup on amazon.com that might be what causes the confusion? Unfortunately there’s nothing I can do about this sort of problem as that’s all on Amazon’s side of things, so you’d need to report it to them.

    Here are the official comments from Amazon on the topic: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_left_cn?ie=UTF8&nodeId=200734550

  10. Thanks for an awesome app. Is there a way to open Kindle format (.mobi) files I’ve downloaded from archive.com for example?

  11. Hi alip,

    Unfortunately the Amazon Cloud Reader only supports books purchased through the Amazon store, I’d suggest trying FBReader for general (non-DRM’d) .mobi books.
