Kindle App Mac Os X
You can also just download the app and double-click a .mobi file.
I'm testing it, but seems that Amazon Kindle OS X floods the net of 'pings' to http://www.amazon.com/ping with something like 500 requests per second!
I imagine this is so the 'Whispersync' status is always up-to-date. It's nothing to worry about, and certainly not enough to eat up your bandwidth or anything, You're not paying for bandwidth by the kilobyte or anything, are you?
Download mac software update without signing in. Oct 18, 2019 Open the App Store app on your Mac. Click Updates in the App Store toolbar. Use the Update buttons to download and install any updates listed. When the App Store shows no more updates, the installed version of macOS and all of its apps are up to date. That includes Safari, iTunes, iBooks, Messages, Mail, Calendar, Photos, and FaceTime.
Double-clicking the mobi file never worked for me, but this hint saved the day and it transferred right into Kindle. Outstanding!
Kindle App For Mac Os X 10.6.8
You do NOT need anything other than iTunes.
Hook up your iPhone, download the Kindle app from the App store, add it to the iPhone with a sync, then select the iPhone in iTunes to manage it. Select the Apps tab in iTunes for the iPhone. Scroll to the bottom half of the window (below the Sync Apps section) to the File Sharing section. Click once on the Kindle app in that list and there will be a Kindle Documents window on the right where one can drag/drop .mobi files directly into your library.
No need to hack the phone, manually go into hidden folders on the Mac or any other madness. Explore iTunes -- your options and solution are readily there.
The hint is about the OS X app, not the iOS app.

You might not have noticed, but your Kindle for Mac has probably stopped syncing with Amazon since updating to OS X Lion, even if you have the most recent Kindle update. Even re-downloading it from Amazon doesn’t solve the problem.
Here’s how to fix it:
1. Delete Kindle.app from your Applications folder (don’t panic! This doesn’t delete your purchases or any added files, just the app).
2. Drag the Kindle icon off the Dock and release it anywhere on the desktop.
2. Click on the App Store icon on the Dock, search for Kindle and install.
3. Don’t forget to make a new icon for your Dock by dragging the Kindle app over from Finder.
That’s it! Syncing restored, but be aware that the App store version of Kindle is an old build. The latest Kindle build with support for Collections won’t work with Lion yet. For that, we’ll all have to wait on the developers… ðŸ™‚
