This is what I've been using to make my way through the Ultimate Marvel Universe.
I was the same as you and started with Ultimate Spider-Man, but then found myself wanting to get an understanding of how the series fits in to the Ultimate universe as a whole.
Pretty much all the series listed in the Excel Sheet are available on Marvel Unlimited; I've been reading the main-line comics as opposed to the spin-offs and it's been working out great.
I already had a MU subscription when I received a Fire HDX for this last Christmas. You can sideload the app and it works quite well.
This guide explains it decently if you're not familiar with the process: http://www.howtogeek.com/178357/how-to-sideload-apps-onto-your-kindle-fire/
I use this tool to download the APKs: http://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/
Just go to the Google Play store on a PC and get the URL for the app you want (MU in this case) and paste it in the text field on that page. It'll generate the download link.
Feel free to message me if you have questions.
Reading on the 7" screen is so much better than on a phone in my opinion.
No kidding, it's on sale on Comixology right now as well.
Not that any of us need that as Marvel added a new Discover series on it today as well.
I was able to use the Web PlayStore "Installed" button to install the new version on my phone despite the fact that my phone wasn't showing the update yet.
Oh wow that's fantastic!! I'm so glad you're enjoying it and you've got folk to share the experience with! It only gets better from here, my friend!
I'd highly recommend the Cyclops oneshot that Jay wrote, X-Men: Marvels Snapshots. As you'll probably already have realised, Jay is a massive Scott Summers fan, and this book does an excellent job of succinctly summarising what makes the character tick, and although it's very newcomer-friendly, it's also very rewarding to keep coming back to - you'll see more and more subtle hints and references to the complex continuity of the character as you get a deeper understanding of X-Men lore.
It's available on Marvel Unlimited and it came out fairly recently so you can pick up the single issue fairly cheap (the Alex Ross cover is absolutely beautiful). Alternatively, the Snapshots hardback collection also comes out in just over a week: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1302924966/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_NRAEH5SWW8985RA8FYGT
The episode of the podcast where Jay talks about writing the book is 308, and you can listen to it whenever you've read the issue, regardless of how far through the podcast you are: https://open.spotify.com/episode/4rC3PMkVRkgtMef5ddGefe?si=WOkpU0tPRym-gOhVrlpVsQ&utm_source=copy-link
I can't seem to find it either, but the FCBD issues from Marvel and DC (and some other publishers) are all on Amazon, seemingly forever. You can go get it there for free.
It's a strong possibility Doomwar is going to become very relevant in the MCU (and OMG it's so good). Here's the reading list (and you'll definitely want to do the prelude to Doomwar)
Conversely, if you have access to Comixology through Amazon Prime here's the TPB (all the comics are on Marvel Unlimited but you'll have to do a little manual searching for some of them)
You can get a feel for what's coming by looking at what graphic novels Marvel has on its release schedule. In this case, the released issues seem to be the missing ones from this collection being released next month:
It's not a sure thing, but comparing these announced collections against what's already in MU should give some idea of what back issues are coming.
It's hard to say. Marvel has republished some of the old Dark Horse comics (e.g. Aliens: The Original Years Omnibus Vol. 1), but it's not clear that'll translate to releases on Marvel Unlimited.
While the Aliens, Predator and Star Wars franchises are all owned by Disney now, they weren't at the point Dark Horse was licensing them. There's no reason to assume that the license they received from Lucasfilm had the same terms as the license from 20th Century Fox.
It's quite possible that Lucasfilm retained more rights to the work Dark Horse produced after the license expired compared to the Fox license. If Marvel is paying Dark Horse a royalty on that Alien omnibus, that could explain why it isn't on MU.
Looks like there is a bunch of Generation X back issues up today too. Looks to be half of the missing issues from Generation X Epic Collection: Emplate's Revenge, set for release in August. I suspect the other half will be released next week.
That still leaves a lot of gaps in the series :-(
The first two volumes are available on Comixology Unlimited, which is free for the first month: https://www.comixology.com/Jessica-Jones-Alias-Vol-1/digital-comic/264077
Thanos Quest is a must before Infinity Gauntlet. If you want to get into Thanos's background before that, check out Avengers vs Thanos. It's a collection of Thanos stories that take place before all the Infinity stuff. The ebook is free if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber: https://www.amazon.com/Avengers-vs-Thanos-Steve-Englehart-ebook/dp/B00FRP6VKQ/
Not strictly mandatory, but some good background stories about Thanos, and a few of them get referenced in Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity War.

I got the Galaxy Tab A7 for exactly this reason. I got it on sale, though. I'm very happy with it, though; I have it loaded with Marvel Unlimited, the DC app, streaming apps, and an offline comic reader for my downloaded stuff. If you can find a deal on it, I'd highly recommend it.
So this just launched. It looks like it could be a challenger to Marvel Unlimited.
It features trades of Marvel, IDW, Archie, and others. https://www.scribd.com/books/Comics
I think I might have to try it out.
There's no sale currently on, but you can consider getting Certified Refurbished Units from Amazon. They have the same warranty as brand new devices, and I've had good luck with refurbished Kindle Paperwhites. There's a refurbished Fire 10 for $99 now. https://www.amazon.com/Certified-Refurbished-Tablet-Display-Wi-Fi/dp/B0189XZ0KY/ref=sr_1_3?s=amazon-devices&ie=UTF8&qid=1516273119&sr=1-3&keywords=refurbished+fire+tablet
Definately one of my favorite series. If you're only buying one trade, I would reccomend the Mother Russia arc.
Daredevil is only really complete from the late 90s onwards. They do have most of the good stuff anyway. BTW, I assume you are talking about Vol 1?
For 100% completeness, you can get comics basically the same way to get movies. In addition to an (incomplete but pretty good) subscription service like MU, you can buy individual digital issues from Comixology (e.g. https://www.comixology.co.uk/Daredevil-1964-1998-86/digital-comic/261406?ref=c2l0ZS9saXN0L2Rlc2t0b3AvZ3JpZExpc3QvSXNzdWVz ), or you can buy big collections of hard copies (e.g. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Essential-Daredevil-TPB-Gerry-Conway/dp/0785127623/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1504689418&sr=8-2&keywords=essential+daredevil+4 ). Of course, some people just pirate things, but old comics tend to be cheap enough that it's pretty affordable to try to support the industry.
Marvel releases collected editions of their comics called omnibuses. Each entry in my list corresponds to an omnibus Marvel has released in print. Usually it contains a writer's full run or a complete event. For example, the first entry on my list corresponds to this book.
