    I've got the Kindle app on my HD7 as well as the Kindle software on my PC, however; when I add free ebooks to my Kindle for PC, the Kindle app on my phone doesn't pick them up. Is there something I'm supposed to do through Zune or what??

    I posted this in another place, but it should've been here, hope moderators don't mind the double post

    Did you add the free ebook through Amazon? I think you have to add an ebook to each instance of Kindle through the Amazon web site.

    When I added books, free and paid. I just add it to one device and once it syncs, it's available to all my kindle devices. I think your problem is you have to add the book from Amazon. Once it's on one device, it'll appear on all of them.

    There's a app called Freda that has drop box support and I'm testing it out now! I'll report on how well it works.

    It works, but it's ugly as all get out. I think I'll just buy the books from the kindle store.

    let us know how it is. I've been trying to finish the Steve Jobs biography for a few weeks now but I'm never on my laptop enough to read it. Having it on my phone would be awesome

    It gets the job done. There's also an app called "aebookreader" that I'm going to give a try.

    Ok. I downloaded &quot;abookreader&quot; app for 99 cents. It does a good job of downloading from dropbox. Its a little buggy, but worth the trouble if you have eBooks outside of amazon.
