Amazon Releases a Kindle App for the iPhone!?!

picture-31Amazon has taken us all by surprise and released a FREE Kindle App for the iPhone. The app, as you would imagine, lets iPhone and Touch users read Kindle books on their iphone. This comes just a few days after Amazon released the Kindle 2 in the US!

So iPhone users can visit www.amazon.com/kindlestore on their computers, order books and have them available to read on their handsets.

Wonderfully, the first chapter of every book is free and if you do happen to own a Kindle, you can sync your reading between the two devices so you know where you ended the last time your read.

This is pretty incredible but clearly Amazon have picked up on the popularity of reading books on the iPhone. Only yesterday, Ben Lorica highlighted the fact that the fastest growing category in the iTunes app store is books

The sad news is the app isn’t available to us in Europe yet. However, we do have alternatives with Stanza and of course, The Classics.

If you are in the US, you can download the app here.
