Amazon Introduces Kindle App for iPad

Amazon’s Kindle e-reader and Apple’s iPad are technically going to be competitors, but this hasn’t stopped Amazon from capitalizing off of the iPad by introducing a Kindle app. The app will offer more than 450,000 Kindle books and use Amazon’s Whispersync technology to synchronize the last page read with other compatible devices, such as an iPhone or a Kindle.

The app has been customized to the size and feel of the iPad and lets users customize the background color and font size, according to Amazon. The last page isn’t the only thing synced: bookmarks, notes, highlights, and annotations are also synced.

Amazon’s Kindle app will have a competitor in the form of a Barnes & Noble e-reader app. Both Amazon and Barnes & Noble make products whose sales could decline when the iPad is released.

In its announcement about the Kindle app, Amazon implied that the app would be available for tablet computers other than the iPad as well. It’s unclear right now what other tablets will get special Kindle apps.
