Amazon Kindles the iPhone

kindle_iphone.jpgHot on the heels of the Kindle 2, Amazon.com has released a Kindle app for the iPhone and iPod touch. Amazon says that the free app is so Kindle owners can start reading a book on their iPhone and pick up where they left off on their Kindle or Kindle 2 or read a page or two while waiting for a meeting to start, while standing in line at the grocery store or other places where it would be inconvenient to use the Kindle.

The app uses Amazon’s new Whispersync technology to save and sync your bookmark across the Kindle, Kindle 2, iPhone and iPod touch so you never lose your place regardless of device.

With Kindle for iPhone, you can shop for books on a Kindle or online at Amazon and wirelessly transfer them to the Apple device, access your full library of previously purchased Kindle books, adjust the text size and add bookmarks.

Amazon has more than 240,000 books, newspapers and magazine available for the Kindle.
