Amazon’s New Kindle Cloud Reader Bypasses Apple App Store

Frustrated (or dare I say furious) by Apple’s move to generate revenue from in-app purchases, Amazon took a bold and innovative move today and released a cloud-based, browser-based Kindle reader for PCs, Macs and iPads. In fact, the Ipad version is the nicest of the lot. I kicked the tires this morning and found it fast and easy to use.

The Kindle Cloud Reader works on the following browsers: Chrome (Mac, PC, Linux),   Safari (Mac, PC), and Safari (iOS for iPhone and Kindle)

Features include:

  • Instant access to your Kindle library
  • Continue reading even when you lose your internet connection
  • Optimized for iPad: shop the integrated Kindle Store for Tablets

    As a long time user of Kindle – on the Kindle device, PC, Mac, and iPad2 – it’s about time.

    BTW, the Kindle e-book “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Knowledge Management” is best read on IE. All other Kindle e-books work well on Chrome or Safari and you do not receive any condescending looks from your engineering colleagues.
