Amazon Releases Kindle Application for iPhone, iPod Touch
Amazon.com has introduced "Kindle for iPhone and iPod Touch," a new, free application that is available from Apple's App Store (www.Apple.com/iphone/appstore/).
With the new Kindle for iPhone and iPod Touch application, customers can:
• shop for hundreds of thousands of books on their Kindle or online at www.Amazon.com/kindlestore and wirelessly transfer the books to their iPhone or iPod touch;
• access their entire library of previously purchased Kindle books stored on Amazon’s servers;
• adjust the text size of books; and
• add bookmarks and view notes and highlights.
Amazon's Whispersync technology saves and synchronizes a customer's bookmark across their original Kindle, Kindle 2, iPhone and iPod Touch, allowing Kindle customers to read on their iPhone or iPod Touch, and then pick up where they left off on their Kindle or Kindle 2.
“We are excited to bring the new Kindle application to Apple's App Store, and think customers are going to love how easy and fun it is to read their Kindle books on the iPhone and iPod Touch,” says Ian Freed, vice president, Amazon Kindle. “Kindle for iPhone and iPod Touch is a great way for customers to catch up on their current book wherever they are, like in line at the grocery store or between meetings.”
