Free "Kindle for iPhone" App

Associated Press:

You may not have the latest $359 Kindle electronic book reader from, but if you own an iPhone or iPod Touch, a new application will let you access the same content on your Apple device.
Here are the features:

  • Buy a Kindle book from your Mac, PC, or iPhone using a Web browser and wirelessly transfer the books to your iPhone
  • Read first chapters of any book for free before you buy
  • Download the Kindle books you already own for free -- they are automatically backed up on
  • Adjust the text size, add bookmarks, and view the annotations you created on your Kindle device
The iPhone client will also allow you to seamlessly switch back and forth between your Kindle device and Kindle for iPhone while keeping bookmarks and reading location synced between the devices. The Kindle is Amazon's electronic book reader that was recently updated to version 2. Amazon had promised that Kindle content would become available for mobile phones which had led to speculation that they might support the iPhone.
Very nice. You can get the free app here. You can get the Kindle 2 here.
