    Followed instructions but I did not have option to download to IPad. I only got the option to re-download to Kindle or delete. Any other suggestions of how to bring in the option to download to IPad? Thanks

    @Marwan – make sure you have the Kindle App installed on your iPad. If you already have it installed, you might want to re-install it, and make sure it’s the version for the iPad and not the iPhone version.

    I downloaded Kindle for IPad. I am on my IPad and have accessed my Amazon account, went to mange kindle and to my orders. When I click on the + sign next to the book I want to download, I only get 2 options: Send Wirelessly to Kindle and option 2 in Delete this Title. Anything else I need to do? Thanks

    @Marwan: Do you have multiple accounts with Amazon? If so, you could be accessing the wrong one. Otherwise… wow I don’t have any other suggestion than to contact Amazon Kindle support. It could be a problem on their end with your account?
