My Kindle app was accidentally deleted, are all my books gone forever?
My daughter accidentally deleted my Kindle app. Does that mean I have lost all my books or can I get them back?
I was in the midst of organizing my newly purchased books on my kindle yesterday when I accidentally removed one. It was a freebie, thank God. But when I went to re-purchase it, Amazon tells me I already own it.
Is there a way to recover deleted Kindle books on iPad iPhone?
As a matter of fact, Kindle has the purchased books associated with your account. If you just deleted the items you bought from Amazon, go to archive folder (Home, Menu, View archived items) on your kindle and click on the book you deleted and it will be re-downloaded back to your kindle!
But for your personal items you accidentally deleted from Kindle, they could not be associate with your Amazon account. You have to retrieve them trying with some recovery tool. In case, you can try Dr.Fone for iOS, a data recovery software for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The latest version newly support app data recovery, like Kindle, WhatsApp, Instagram, Flickr, iPhoto, iMovie, and so on.
I’m not so sure it can help you get back your deleted kindle books on iPhone or iPad, as I yet have not tested it on my computer. But the program is so good at recover deleted items on iOS devices, and recently the publisher listed the Kindle data recovery function. So it’s worth a try.
OK, Let’s get started download the iOS data recovery program from the links below.
