– (NASD: AMZN) on Monday unveiled a version of its Kindle e-book reader software
application for Apple’s (NASD: AAPL) forthcoming iPad tablet computer.

The application will
feature Amazon’s Whispersync technology, which synchronizes a reader’s last
page so she can resume from the same place on any device.

The New York Times
notes that the Kindle application also "allows users to slowly turn pages
with their fingers," and "presents two new ways for people to view
their entire e-book collection, including one view where large images of book
covers are set against a backdrop of a silhouetted figure reading under a tree.
The sun’s position in that image varies with the time of day."

Amazon also
recently released a version of its Kindle application for Apple’s Mac platform.

  1. I should add, as a Mac user, the Kindle application for Mac platform is far better than that of PC version. Maybe I’m biased but it responses much better especially when you’re flipping pages.

  2. has been providing very useful information. This new product is targeted for Apple’s forthcoming i Pad tablet computer. I appeal to work out some innovative ways to transfer Microsoft system to fit Apple’s.
