    Hi, I have another question. Do I need to use the VPN each time I launch the Kindle app to read books, etc. ? Or is it safe to use Malaysian IP address?

    • SingaBoleh Mar 1, 2015, 5:59 pm

      You only use VPN when you purchase the book. After that, there is no ip restriction for viewing them or syncing to other Kindle device/app.

      • Bro Aug 2, 2015, 4:04 pm

        Dear SingaBoleh,

        Just to share some info.. I was told by others that Option “None” in payment method has been removed.

  • Sarah Mar 1, 2015, 2:05 pm

    Hi I would like to check. I have downloaded the Kindle app on my iPad but am currently waiting for my Kindle to arrive. Will I encounter any problems to register my Kindle and sync the books that I have purchased on the Kindle app? I downloaded the Kindle app via VPN.

    • SingaBoleh Mar 1, 2015, 5:57 pm

      You can buy the Kindle book as long as you are using the ‘safe’ method that we demonstrated here. When your Kindle arrived, you just need to login to your Amazon account which you bought the books, and the books will sync to you Kindle.

  • Valli Feb 4, 2015, 11:44 pm

    This was very useful, as otherwise wondering why Amazon did not tie up with Apple Singapore store, atleast this work around helped.

  • Guhan Nov 30, 2014, 10:37 pm

    It works now. Thank you!


  • Guhan Nov 30, 2014, 5:37 pm

    I downloaded the app with the instructions you have given and it shows that the app was downloaded but I cannot see it on iTunes nor on my iPhone.

    BTW, do I need to sign back into my Singapore account after downloading the app?


    • SingaBoleh Nov 30, 2014, 5:50 pm

      Strange, you should be able to see it. You will need to switch back to Singapore account to update apps that you’re downloaded via Singapore account.

  • scuffdiva Sep 15, 2014, 11:37 am

    Hi. I already have an itunes account. How do I change it to a US account and not lose all my other apps?
    Can one just download the kindle app and then change back account to Singapore itunes?
    How will I get my previous kindle purchases over?

    I am using an ipad mini. How would one then purchase kindle books?


    • SingaBoleh Sep 16, 2014, 4:23 pm

      Yes, you need to create a separate US itunes account, login with US account to get kindle app, sign in the kindle app with your Amazon account.
      All your existing apps will stay in your ipad mini, you need to login with your Singapore itunes account to manage/update your existing apps.

      Please refer here on how to buy US kindle book, all purchased kindle books will be stored on your Amazon account and will be sync to the kindle app on your ipad mini.

    Even though i changed my itunes country settings to the US , it does not show ‘ none’ as a payment option. When i give in my singapore card and US billing address, they say bank records do not match. I am hence unable to even download the kindle app.

    • SingaBoleh Apr 27, 2014, 10:21 am

      Hi Sag, it should be working fine. Just follow the exact steps in our tutorials, do no shortcut to create ID directly, you need to select a FREE app first.

  • BV Mar 19, 2014, 11:07 pm

    Why is it that the payment option “None” does not appear when I try to create an Apple ID ?


    • SingaBoleh Mar 20, 2014, 11:58 am

      make sure you select the US iTunes.

  • layers Mar 4, 2014, 9:29 am

    weirdly i can donwload the app with my Singapore acc with address and card info

    did they just remove the restriction?

    • SingaBoleh Mar 4, 2014, 3:52 pm

      Some people manage to do that, but the account will be at risk.

    • layers Mar 4, 2014, 6:28 pm

      oops my mistake, well will try and follow your step then

  • Tess Feb 9, 2014, 7:56 am

    Tried and successful! Thanks for the great tips! 🙂
    Managed to transfer all my ebooks from kindle to ipad.

    Getting error message when trying to set up Apple ID….. For assistance, contact iTunes support…

    • SingaBoleh Jan 4, 2014, 1:54 pm

      Make sure your iTunes is updated, follow the tutorial closely, there is no problem, we have just tested.

  • don Dec 27, 2013, 6:55 am

    I manage to download the app, but all searches for books returns a nil result. Any idea why? 🙁

  • Alexa Nov 25, 2013, 12:52 pm

    Will I be able to purchase books using this method too?

    • SingaBoleh Nov 25, 2013, 1:04 pm

      Yes, once purchased, you can sync the book to all your kindle devices or apps.

  • Kiwi Nov 11, 2013, 3:23 am


    thank you for the post!
    I am concerned if I have a lot of apps bought at the Singapore itunes, will not they be erased when I synchronize my Ipad to the newly setup accountin US? I want to keep all my apps and just to add the Kindle on top of that. If that possible?


    • SingaBoleh Nov 12, 2013, 1:02 am

      You’re welcome, Kiwi. Worry not, sync only kindle app with your US itunes account, it will add on to your iPad and all other data remains intact.
