Amazon releases Kindle for iPhone 1.0

Posted by Scott Mahan on March 4, 2009 in Technology |

kindleforiphoneLast night, Amazon released the much rumored Kindle for iPhone application.  Kindle for iPhone is a free application and is available now via the iTunes store.  The app utilizes Whispersync to keep your library, bookmarks, and current location in sync between your Kindle and iPhone.  Without digging too deep into the app, here is my quick take:

Pros:

  • Large library of eBooks available from Amazon
  • Whispersync – Stay in sync with your Kindle device
  • Read first chapters of any book for free before you buy
  • Adjust the text size, add bookmarks, and view the annotations you created on your Kindle device

Cons:

  • Currently does not support newspapers or magazine subscriptions
  • Cannot purchase books directly from the app, but must purchase on Amazon.com (from PC, Mac or iPhone) or a Kindle
  • Does not support non-Amazon eBooks
