How can I read my Kindle books?

As Amazon does not provide any system for third party apps to get access to the books, you have to first get your book files from your kindle account. Then, as most paid books are DRM-protected, you have to remove this protection. There are many sites explaining this process, you can start here:

Remember, you are not doing anything ilegal, you have already paid for your books and you only want to read them on your Blackberry device, your books are yours. This is not piracy.

I can’t see any file but I have some epub’s on “downloads”, “documents” or “books” folders. Why?

That’s usually a permission problem. On device main settings, go to “Security”, “Application permissions”, and check permissions for Playepub.


When I start Playepub nothing happens, I can only see a white screen without the folder buttons.

You have probably denied “File Access” permission when you installed Playepub. See first issue.

After purchasing Playepub I can’t see the icon on my Playbook desktop and it does not appear as a purchased app in App World

Have you tried swiping up/down, left/right on your desktop?

Many times new icons get hidden from visible space but they are there. Also, Playbook allows many desktops, see the screenshot for the red rectangle, each point is one desktop, just swipe left/right to change.

You might have to clear App World cache.

For the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet, follow these steps:

  1. Launch the BlackBerry AppWorld application
  2. Swipe in from the bottom-left corner of the frame to bring up the keyboard.
  3. Type rst

Note: BlackBerry App World will not provide any notification that the reset has been performed.

Can I unninstall Playepub and install it again without having to pay twice?

Yes, you can if you use the same Blackberry ID. You are only charged the first time.

I have many books in other formats. Can I convert them to epub?

Yes, you can. Try Calibre to convert them to epub. You can also try some online converters:,

When I open my book I can only see characters without any sense, I can open the book and change pages but text is malformed.

That’s because your book is DRM-protected. Try Epub DRM removal to remove protection.

Will Playepub support DRM-protected books?

I wish, but it probably never will. It’s not a develoment issue, it’s a licensing problem, Adobe will not allow me. I’ve ask for a license but they have not answered.

What’s the difference between bookmarks and notes?

Bookmarks are just links to pages on book, click “Add bookmark” and that’s all. Notes are a more elaborated type of bookmark where you can add some relevant text. You can add as many notes as you want to a page but one page can only have one bookmark.
