Just a quick fyi that Amazon has released a free app on iTunes that lets you download Amazon ebooks to the iPhone. This means that you don’t necessarily have to buy a Kindle in order to purchase & read ebooks from the largest vendor of ebooks– although I find the Kindle reader to be considerably preferable to the iPhone’s small screen. But that is just me. One nice feature built into the new Amazon app is the ability to keep text in sync on the two devices. So, for example, if you’re reading Anna Karenina on the iPhone, your Kindle will know where you left off and automatically start you at the right place the next time that you pick it up. A nice idea. But will I use it? Not sure. You? For more details on the new app, see Lifehacker’s coverage.
Update: Visit our collection of Free eBooks, and load free books right to your PC, Smart Phone or Kindle.
I downloaded the app and a book and am trying it out. I tried a original kindle once – but found reading it painful. I’m somewhat dyslexic (mainly dysgraphic). The text on the original kindle started floating and doing cartwheels in the air.
I haven’t been able to try reading on a New Kindle, but even if I like it I don’t know if I like the price.
So far I find reading on the I-Pod Touch easy.
