Kindle Now Available In New Zealand.. As An iPhone App.

By Benedict Wee

Despite Amazon thinking us unworthy to ship their e-Readers to our shores, you can take comfort in the fact that their latest iPhone/iPod Touch application brings us the same functionalities as their physical device does.

Kindle for the iPhone allows you to:
  • Buy a Kindle book from your Mac, PC or iPhone using a web browser and wirelessly transfer the books to your iPhone
  • Read the beginning of any book for free before you buy
  • Download the Kindle books you already own for free - they are automatically backed up on Amazon.com
  • Adjust the text size and add bookmarks
  • Tap and hold on a word to create a note or a highlight. Whispersync will back up and synchronize annotations with your other Kindle devices
  • Read in portrait or landscape mode
  • Select alternate background and text colors to improve reading comfort in low light conditions
  • Tap on either side of the screen to flick pages
  • Pinch to zoom images in books
The app is free and you pay only for the books you download which cost around US$9.99/NZ$13.75 for New York Times Best Sellers and most new releases.
