Wondering where Amazon hid the Kindle store on its Kindle app for the Phone? Nope, you’re not missing anything—it simply isn’t there.

You can buy Kindle books directly on your iPhone or iPad, with a little help from Safari.
Thanks to Apple’s strict rules regarding so-called “in-app” purchase on the iPhone, Amazon long ago removed a handy button on its Kindle app that used to lead iPhone users straight to the online Kindle store.

The good news, though, is that you still can buy Kindle books directly on the iPhone—or the iPad, for that matter.

Launch the Safari browser and type (or click) this link into the address bar:
http://read.amazon.com

You should arrive on Amazon’s “Cloud Reader,” an online version of the Kindle e-reader for PC and Mac web browsers, as well as the iPad—and in the top-right corner of the page, you should see a button marked “Kindle Store.” Go ahead and tap it.
Now, you should be be looking at the touch-optimized Kindle Store for iPad, complete with a swipeable row of recommended books and about two-dozens categories to browse.

The process is similar for an iPhone.

At this point, you’ll have arrived at the same page where the old “Kindle Store” button on the iPhone Kindle app would have taken you. From here, you can search the entire store, or browse books, newspapers, magazines, or Kindle “Singles” (short stories, essays, and other short works, which typically cost or less).
Once you find a Kindle book you like, tap its link, then make sure your iPhone is selected in the pull-down menu marked “Send wirelessly to.”
Tap “Buy now” or “Try a sample,” then go back to the iPhone Kindle app; your new book should start downloading automatically.
