There is a free Kindle eBook titled "Kindle for iOS Accessibility Gestures - Quick Reference Guide" by Michael Iams. Here are the instructions for getting this book. I'm appending the first section on how to buy or download to your iOS device.  Note that these instructions assume you have already downloaded the Kindle app onto your device and created an account.

Kindle Store: Buy & Download to your iOS Device

You can shop from the Kindle Store using the Safari browser and deliver Kindle titles to the Kindle reading app on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Your device must be connected to a wireless or data network in order to download Kindle content to your Kindle reading app.

From the Safari browser, visit the Kindle Store website:

  • iPad:
  • iPhone or iPad touch:
  1. Sign in to the Kindle Store with the same Amazon account you used when you registered the Kindle reading app. Browse for Kindle titles you want to read, and then tap to view the product detail page.
  2. To send the Kindle title to your device, from the Send wirelessly to drop-down menu, select your device. If you don't see your device, make sure you signed in with the Amazon account registered to your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. 
  3.  Tip: Tap Try a Sample to download the beginning of a book for free. 
  4. After you purchase content, your titles are delivered to the Kindle app on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Check your cloud tab.

To get the quick reference guide, once you are on the Kindle Store page (step1) you can either type or paste in in the title of the guide into the text box,  or the name of the author, "Michael Iams"(without the quotes), or the book's ASIN number: B00CL5NIGU

HTH.  Thanks to Bryan Jones of the Mac-Access list for finding this guide.

Hi! I'm sure this guide will be very useful to a lot of us, but I have one question: when the instructions talk about using the Safari browser to choose and purchase Kindle books, do they mean on our i-devices or on Macs? The reason I ask is, the only place I have Safari is on my iPhone 4S, as I don't have a Mac or any other i-devices. If the Kindle books have to be chosen or purchased on the computer, I would assume that Windows users would use Internet Explorer, firefox, or any other browser of their choice to do the purchasing, but I just wanted to know, one way or the other, whether this would also work in Safari on our i-devices.

Hello, I'd venture to say you have to use the iDevice, since it specifically mentions mobile stores for iPhone/iPod Touch, and iPad.

If you want to use any web browser, including your PC or Mac, you can find this guide at:

However, I was assuming that most people were trying to find content in the simplest way from their iOS devices. Note that this eBook is in Kindle format, so I've only read it from the Kindle app on my iOS devices.

Here's another shorter link that will work, as well:

I managed to find the guide on, but it's not free. It costs $1.01. I know that's not much, but really! You'd think it would be free everywhere.

Very odd, but the only two Amazon stores that seem to charge for this guide are the ones for Canada and Brazil. In the US, UK, Japan, and any of the Amazon stores in the European Union, such as France, Italy, Germany, or Spain, this guide is free. The fastest way to find this guide in the different Amazon country stores seems to be by typing or pasting the ASIN (Amazon Standard Identication Number) into the search text box. This is "B00CL5NIGU" (without the quotation marks).
