Amazon has rolled out its Kindle app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The app allows users to read Kindle books on the devices. You can buy the books on your computer and send them to your iPhone or Touch via Wi-Fi, or via the device itself. If you are a Kindle owner, you can download all your purchased books for free. The iPhone supports the Kindle’s Whispersync service so you can go from reading a book on your device to reading it on your Kindle without losing your place.
Kindle for iPhone looks to give both Google and existing iPhone e-readers such as Stanza a serious run for their money now that iPhone users have access to Amazon’s library of over 240,000 titles – and that number grows everyday. Kindle for iPhone requires an iPhone or iPod Touch with the 2.1 software update and is available for free from the App Store.
During the Kindle 2 unveiling, the Amazon reps mentioned that Kindle books would work with multiple devices other than Kindle. Don’t be surprised to see Kindle apps for Palm and BlackBerries once those app stores get started.
