How to open MOBI files in Kindle for Android [Tip]

The Amazon Kindle app is definitely one of the best e-book readers for Android. Not only does it flaunt a lot of good features, it also allows you to read documents and e-books that you’ve downloaded outside of Amazon.

Speaking of which, the Kindle app supports various types of file and documents. Therefore, it is not only limited to AZW (.azw) files. You can also use it to view PDF (.pdf) and MOBI (.mobi) files.

To view a PDF on Kindle for Android, you simply open the file directly from your file or document manager. By default, the “Complete action using” dialog box will appear and you can choose the application that you want  for viewing your PDF document.

Now, with MOBI files, it’s a bit different. Usually, you will get an error message if ever you directly open or view the file from your file manager. If, in case, this happens, you can follow the steps listed below.
