iOS Kindle App Updated: Access To Free eBooks, File Sharing


As much as Amazon’s ads make fun of all of us iOS users for trying to read one of their precious Kindle eBooks on anything other than their reader, it’s great to see that they keep updating it with more good stuff. This time version 2.5 of the iOS Kindle app includes:

– The ability to download books in the background

– Access to millions of free and out-of-copyright books from Project Gutenberg, Internet Archive, and other sources even if your receive them by Mail, Safari, or through iTunes file sharing.

– One or two bug fixes, improved zoom and a new book indicator

I am a big fan of reading books on a phone, and specially with the iPhone 4’s new retina display. Surely it may never replicate a full “read a real book” experience, but then again, who ever said that real book experience was perfect? For some, it is key, and for others like me, the ability to only have to carry one device for everything is better than carrying two for specific tasks. Subtract the price of the Kindle to that mind set, and you’ve clearly got yourself a winner. Make sure you visit iTunes for your free app.
