Saving MOBIs to Downloads

The BookFunnel App for FireOS can save Kindle MOBI files to your local storage and save them in your Download folder.

Troubleshooting Tips

This is what the Kindle Fire Docs App Icon looks like

This MOBI has been saved to your Download folder and will not appear in your Kindle Books Library.

To locate the MOBI in your Download folder:

  1. Locate the Docs app. If you don’t see Docs on your home screen with the rest of your apps, swipe up on your Kindle screen to pull up all of your installed apps.
  2. Tap Docs.
  3. At the top of the screen, you should see three options: Send-to-Kindle, Cloud Drive, and Local Storage.
  4. Tap Local Storage. If you don’t see a list of folders, tap the arrow in the top-left corner of the screen until you see the folders inside Local Storage.
  5. Tap the Download folder to locate the MOBI.

If you locate the file, but your Kindle won’t open it, check for more troubleshooting tips below.
