I’ve just entered e-book reading nirvana with the Amazon’s Kindle iPhone App. Yes, please!
You don’t mind reading it on the iPhone’s screen? I think that’s the only big draw to the kindle is its ability to display text in a comfortable way.
Maybe I”m out of touch, but I can’t understand why people seem to be so excited to read books on what is roughly a 2 1/2″ x 4″ screen.
Plus, reading on the bright electronic screen of an iphone would make my eyes bleed after about ten minutes. I can barely stand watching videos on an iPod for more than a few minutes.
At least with the Kindle, it uses e-Ink, and it doesn’t cause so much strain on your eyes…
I’d like to be able to try this out as it’s certainly going to be an excellent app for the iPhone – and who wants to carry a huge brick like the Kindle around when they have an iPhone that’s capable of doing so much more.
Shame it’s only available in the US and I’m in Switzerland! Let’s see how long it takes to travel over the Atlantic…
I installed it yesterday and picked a free sample of a travel book. I’m not sure how much I will use this. I only read books here and there, but I’ll try it.
I tried this out yesterday and got Ovid’s Metamorphsis. It was a horrible read experience. The leading, spacing, and general layout of the text was unbearable.
I suspect reading poetry on the Iphone Kindle will be iffy.
iPhone App? Looks more like a poorly setup website to me. Stanza has it sorted, check it out.
I have heard quiet a lot about the amazon kindle, even though i don’t know much about the features but i think i will be buying one soon.
I can relate to what Chris is saying. I am usually on my computer anytime i am not doing anything, so to add another of those screens to my daily routine would definitely have some effects on my eyes
