Kindle for iPhones Puts Amazon’s Catalog on Smaller Screens [Downloads]

4 Mar/09

Amazon knew you would pass on its Kindle 2 because you’ve got an iPhone or iPod touch. So they went ahead and released a free app that puts the ebook reader’s catalog on your smaller screen.

Every book, magazine, and newspaper you can buy for the Kindle can now be read through the iPhone app, and many of the same features are included. You can bookmark any page, change text sizes on the fly, and note and highlight passages. You buy your books through Amazon’s web-based Kindle Store, either on a desktop/laptop system or through your iPhone Safari browser, and choose to send the purchases (or one-chapter samples) to your iPhone/touch or Kindle. If you’ve got both gadgets, “WhisperSync” will keep up to date on which page you’re on in each device—in other words, you finish reading on the subway, come home, and your Kindle knows you’re on page 258.

Here’s a few screens from the buying process and the iPhone Kindle experience (click for larger views and descriptions):

 The basic reading experience. Bottom buttons (from left): Previous page or location, add a bookmark, review bookmarks, change font size, sync page location for Kindles.  Kind of annoying that you have to jump to a new browser to buy or sample your reading.  Purchasing at the Kindle store—pretty straight-forward.
 Ack! Amazon knows your Apple device name when you buy or grab free chapter samples. If you're rocking multiple iPods/iPhones, this is convenient.  Pre-set and custom bookmarks.

Kindle’s not the only free ebook reader for the iPhone, but its selection is certain to be the widest. iPhone luggers, are you liking the screen clarity enough to consider this Kindle app a real replacement for Amazon’s gadget, or just a companion?

Kindle for iPhone is a free download, requires an iPhone or iPod touch running at least the 2.0 software.
