What is an APNX file?

The .apnx or the Amazon Page Number Index file extension is an e- book file type that normally utilized by Amazon Kindle. APNX files are pagination files used by Kindle devices and they are firstly introduced in 3.1 firmware version. APNX files are files specifically created to mark the pages of Kindle e- books.
