Amazon confirmed that a Kindle iPad app is on the way while announcing the launch of the Kindle for
Mac app. Amazon first promised a Kindle for Mac app in October 2009. Now it has finally arrived with
similar functionality as Kindle on the iPhone, Blackberry and PC.
Kindle for Mac will sync with other devices. If you read a Kindle book on your Mac, you’ll be able to
pick up where you left off on your iPhone or Kindle when you’re on the move.
Kindle for Mac is available for free now from the Amazon website. You’ll need Mac OS X 10.5 or
above to start reading. Full text search and the ability to add and edit notes in Kindle for Mac will be
added later, though you can read notes and annotations you’ve added on other devices.
While the Kindle iPhone app will work on the iPad, a native Kindle iPad app would be far easier to use.
Apple has said that you’ll be able to sync ePub files through iTunes into its iBooks app but how it will
deal with competition from a Kindle iPad app remains to be seen.
With the iPad arriving in April, we could see the Kindle iPad app shortly after. After all, iPhone-to-
iPad conversion is not a huge undertaking considering the similarities in both OS's. Oh by the way,
their's also rumors of a Kindle 2 with iPad-like qualities.
