Reading books or comics is a cool way to use the dual screens on the Axon M

Shout out to @wings4annie who had this idea for reading books with the dual screens. It works perfect for the book layout and comics look cool on it as well.

    I am totally loving this.
    I can read book after book. Being on vacation. I wanted to take like 6 new reads.
    So thanks to @DrakenFX help (he told me how)
    I have already read 1. Yah!!!!

    This phone has unlimited possibilities.
    I will take a better picture in daylight.
    @jasone thanks, I really don't think this device has any limitations.

    I can't get my Kindle app to do this. I've seen in done on YouTube. I've tried the Google Play version and the Amazon Appstore version. No luck. Please advise.

    Welcome @jeffstroup to the community.
    Sorry for the delay.
    I am charging my phone right and I will get back to.
    I use play books.
    I will download Kindle and play with it awhile.

    @jeffstroup I'm back.
    First thing I want to tell you make sure you gave the extended mode forced.
    Go to settings... Display... Enable force extended mode.

    I use play books, some books works, and some don't have the option.
    Open play books.... Look at top says "Aa" open that.

    I downloaded kindle. I will play with it for a couple of days and get back to you.

    I tried the Kindle app but couldn't get it to work. I'm using Google Play Books in my photo.

    I tried Kindle also.
    But I'm thinking, my device says Android. In settings on Kindle.
    I was thinking if I could change to tablet/Android. So I'm still playing with Kindle.

    Ok I have tried to get Kindle to work with dual pages. Unable to.
    So in order to use dual pages. Need to use play books, as described above

  • In kindle, open your book and and tap on screen so that menus pull up. Tap the Aa icon and scroll down until you see the the option Allow Multiple columns. This allows you to read in true book form on Axon M with kindle. Make sure Margin is narrow. Hope this helps.

    Never mind my previous post. I just saw where it says some books don't have the option.

    This is with play books.
    You can also use Kindle books.
