    I have an iPhone and the kindle app, and before the new iTunes app I added mobi files into the app just you like stated, with file sharing. Today I downloaded the new iTunes version 11.0.1.12 (I’m behind, I know) and when I plug in my iPhone and click Apps, there is no scroll bar and I can’t find File Sharing anywhere. iTunes Help is anything but helpful. Please give me tips on the new iTunes! Thanks!

    I did this and the only way I can see them on my kindle app on my ipad mini is if I do a search for the book I want to read. For some reason they do not show up with the other books on my kindle app.

    Brilliant!! I have finally been able to achieve my goal ant copy eBook files from my PC to my Apple Ipad Mini.

    I have followed the advice/instructions on this subject, given by a number of others, at various times in the past: all to no avail. Your suggested solution and accompanying instructions were easy to follow and the outcome was spot on.
    Many thanks.
    Kind regards
