Well, it certainly didn’t take Amazon that long to officially release its Kindle app for PC. As promised this application will let you enjoy Kindle books on your PC. Amazon currently has more than 360,000 books on its catalog, ready for download. Prices of Kindle books and magazines usually starts at $9.99.
Like the Kindle eReader, Kindle for PC also works with Amazons Whispersync technology. This will allow you to synchronize bookmarks as well as the last page you’ve read either on your Kindle, Kindle DX, Kindle for iPhone and of course Kindle for PC.
Key features of Kindle for PC include:
- Purchase, download and read hundreds of thousands of books available in the Kindle Store
- Read the beginning of any book for free before they buy
- Access their library of previously purchased Kindle books stored on Amazon’s servers for free
- Read books in full color including children’s books, cookbooks, travel books, textbooks and graphic novels
- Choose from more than 10 different font sizes and adjust words per line
- Add and automatically synchronize bookmarks and last page read
- View notes and highlights marked on Kindle, Kindle DX, iPhone, and iPod touch
- Zoom in and out of text with a pinch of the fingers (Windows 7 users only)
- Turn pages with a finger swipe (available in a future release for Windows 7 users)
