Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family. If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page. Kindle Cloud Reader is an HTML5-based web app developed by Amazon that lets you access your Kindle library in your web browser. Though Kindle books are already accessible on almost all platforms (with the Kindle native application for Windows, Mac, iPhone and Android), Amazon has decided to make this access even wider and easier with the Kindle Cloud Reader.
You can now read any Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff Kindle Book (or anyone’s Kindle books) instantly in your browser (Chrome, Firefox and Safari only) with the Kindle Cloud Reader.
Wenn man sich die jungsten Umfrageergebnisse zur eBook-Nutzung ansieht, dann ist Amazons Strategie eine moglichst gro?e Bandbreite an Endgerate abzudecken, ganz offensichtlich keine schlechte Idee. Tatsachlich war der Cloud-Reader aber zunachst als Reaktion auf eine Anderung der Apple-Geschaftsbedingungen, wonach der Elektronikriese zu 30 Prozent an allen In-App-Verkaufen beteiligt werden will, zu verstehen. Nach der Ubernahme von ComiXology hat Amazon die In-App-Verkaufe mit der neuesten iOS-Version ebenfalls gestrichen.
Seit dem Start des Kindle Cloud Reader im Jahr 2011 wurde die Webapp im Funktionsumfang weiter ausgebaut, sodass weitere Optionen fur Lesezeichen, Notizen und Markierungen, sowie Schriftbildanpassungen hinzugekommen sind. Nachdem der Kobo Aura One bereits durch die amerikanische Telekommunikationsbehorde vor wenigen Wochen namentlich und mit wenigen Details geleakt ist, gibt’s heute eine gro?ere (wieder unbeabsichtigte) Vorabveroffentlichung, die das Gerat in seiner vollen Pracht und mit den wichtigsten Spezifikationen zeigt.
Vor knapp uber einem Monat sickerte bereits durch, dass Kobo zwei neue eBook Reader auf den Markt bringen will.
Lange Zeit habe ich Kritik an der Tatsache geubt, dass die Tolino Partner kein gunstiges Einsteigermodell als Konkurrenz zum Basis-Kindle auf den Markt bringen. Die Vorstellung des Kindle Oasis Mitte April 2016 wurde nach der Vorankundigung von Amazons Firmenchef von vielen digitalen Lesefans sehnlichst erwartet. Mit dem Illumina hat sich der niederlandische eReader-Anbieter Icarus auch im deutschsprachigen Raum einen Namen gemacht. Mit dem Icarus Illumina ist vor wenigen Wochen ein neuer Android eBook Reader erschienen, der dem Onyx Boox T68 und Imcosys Imcov6l Konkurrenz macht. Die eBook Reader von Kobo gehoren schon seit dem Start von ALLESebook zu unseren Favoriten. Nicht nur fur den Otto-Normal-Verbraucher eignet sich Calibre zur Verwaltung von eBook-Bibliotheken, sondern insbesondere auch fur Sammler, die neben ihren gekauften Digitaltiteln zusatzlich tausende kostenlose Titel aus dem Internet herunterladen und archivieren. Coverage of the Kindle Cloud Reader has largely focused on how it behaves on the iPada€”and with good reason. Thata€™s great, but if youa€™re going to do a lot of reading on your Mac, youa€™re probably better off downloading the free Kindle for Mac app, since it offers many more text and formatting options. Still, Kindle Cloud Reader seems like a great option for people who are using a shared computer, perhaps at a school computer lab, since it gives you access to all your Kindle books without having to install any software.
Ita€™s hard not to view the Kindle Cloud Reader as Amazona€™s attempt to find a way onto the iPad in a way that bypasses Applea€™s restrictions on app development.
As Steve Jobs himself has said on many occasions, Apple offers two pathways for developers to put content on the iOSa€”via the curated App Store experience and via the completely open world of HTML5-based web apps.
One of the advantages native apps have is that theya€™re easy to find: Launch the App Store app, type Kindle, and in a few seconds youa€™ve downloaded and installed the Kindle app on your iPada€™s home screen.
At this point, the best thing to doa€”and Ia€™m surprised Amazon doesna€™t actually step you through the processa€”is tap the Share icon in Safaria€™s toolbar and choose Add to Home Screen.
Though the home-screen icon and lack of browser chrome makes the Kindle Cloud Reader feel like a native iOS app, there are still some notable differences. To read a book in the Cloud Reader, just tap on its cover art; while tapping in the Kindle app will download the entire book to your device, the Cloud Reader web app will start loading the book over the Web and display it right away. The reading experience in the two apps is quite similar, but here there are some notable differences, too. The text options are more limited in the Cloud Reader app: you can choose from five text sizes, while the iPad app gives you six to choose from.
Amazon allows Kindle users (in both its iOS apps and on its dedicated Kindle devices) to highlight passages in books and make notes about the text. I noticed some lag and delays in the Cloud Reader app as I used it, especially when moving from chapter to chapter. If therea€™s one place where the Cloud Reader has it all over the native iPad app, ita€™s in buying books.


Two screens from the Cloud Reader version of the Kindle Store: the main screen (left) and a detail page. On the home screen of the Cloud Reader therea€™s a Kindle Store button, but it doesna€™t do what the old iPad app did.
And herea€™s the best part: Once you decide you want to buy a book, you tap the Buy button. Ita€™s a shame this sort of experience cana€™t be integrated in the native iOS version of the Kindle app, but Apple has made it clear that it wona€™t allow that, so here we are. I cana€™t really recommend that Kindle users on the iPad dump the native Kindle app for this new Kindle Cloud Readera€”at least not yet.
Though Apple's taken strides with iBooks's interface and store, the Kindle app remains a very fine alternative.
Amazon's Kindle Cloud Reader lets users read Kindle e-books via their Web browsers without the need to download and install an application.

It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app. We do not encourage or condone the use of this program if it is in violation of these laws. Genau genommen gibt’s die HTML5 basierte Lese-App aber eigentlich schon seit August 2011.
Wahrend sich die App-Entwickler, die im App-Store gelistet werden mochten, den Apple-Bedingungen unterwerfen mussen, ist das fur browserbasierte HTML5-Anwendungen naturlich nicht notig. Der Cloud Reader fugt sich damit mittlerweile nahtlos in das restliche Kindle-App-Angebot ein.
Gefunden wurde der Aura One auf einer niederlandichen Webseite von einem Mobileread-Nutzer.
Das Portal dient als Mirror fur zahlreiche gratis Softwares fur den PC, wobei alleine die zehn am haufigsten heruntergeladenen Programme uber 80 Millionen Mal angeklickt wurden. Was zur Enthullung des neuen Modells geschah, das durfte aber selbst Amazon uberrascht haben: Uber den hochpreisigen eReader wurde uberall im Internet sehr hitzig diskutiert. Insbesondere bei technikversierten Nutzern und Fans der Skoobe eBook Flaterate erfreut sich das E-Ink Carta Gerat dank Android Betriebssystem gro?er Beliebtheit. Die Gerate werden laufend sinnvoll weiterentwickelt und bieten (mittlerweile) eine ausgereifte und vielseitige Software. In beiden Fallen kann ein Schaden an der Datenbank durch allgemeine PC-Probleme oder den Ausfall der Festplatte bzw. Using HTML5 and related technologies, Kindle Cloud Reader isna€™t just for browsing books when youa€™ve got an Internet connection: It can even store books on your device for offline reading. But ita€™s important not to miss the fact that Kindle Cloud Reader works on Safari and Chrome, too. On a desktop browser, the Kindle Cloud Reader lets you choose from five different margin widths and five different font sizes; the native Mac app offers 12 different font sizes and something like 20 different margin widths. Recently Amazona€™s Kindle app was updated to remove a link to the Kindle Store because Apple mandated it; the only financial transactions allowed within iOS apps must use Applea€™s purchase system, which Amazon cana€™t use due to the financial model of the ebook business.
This will create a new Cloud Reader icon on your iPada€™s home screen, complete with custom icon. To store a book locally on your device in the Cloud Reader, you must tap and hold on its cover, then tap a€?Download & Pin Booka€? from the resulting pop-up menu. In both interfaces, you can tap on the screen in order to toggle the display of various reading controls, including text settings, a link to the booka€™s table of contents, and a slider that lets you jump anywhere in the book.
It appears that the tool is doing some very clever things with caching and rendering portions of a book, perhaps one chapter at a time.
The native Kindle app found in the App Store is smoother, faster, and offers more flexibility.
Certainly most non-technical users are going to keep searching for the native app in the App Store and installing it from there.


We give you the scoop on what's new, what's best and how to make the most out of the products you love. It has been built from the ground up using HTML5, and allows for offline access to the user's collection of Kindle e-books. His work has appeared in The Washington Post, Playboy, WebMD, AARP the Magazine, AutoWeek, Washington City Paper, Trader Monthly, and Private Air. Auf Wunsch kann man die eBooks auch direkt im Browser herunterladen, sodass man auch weiterlesen kann, wenn die Internetverbindung nicht mehr besteht. Dabei soll es sich einerseits um ein Lesegerat mit 7,8 Zoll Display handeln, andererseits um einen 6 Zoller. Diese Losung ist direkt in der Funktionalitat des Programms eingebaut und erfordert grundsatzlich nur wenige Anpassungen. Aber auch in Hinblick auf die Hardware konnen insbesondere die beiden aktuellen Modelle Glo HD und Aura H2O uberzeugen.
Tap on it, and Kindle Cloud Reader will load againa€”this time without any web-browser interface trappings. Like the native app, therea€™s a home screen full of book coversa€”by default the Kindle app shows you the items on the device; the Kindle Cloud Reader shows you all the books available to your account.
To see all books that have been downloaded, you tap on the Downloaded tab at the bottom of the screen. The web app displays the black bar at the top of the iPada€™s screen at all times, showing you the time, your battery status, and wireless connectivity, while the native app only displays that information when you tap to reveal the various page controls. One book I tested, Paolo Bacigalupia€™s Ship Breaker, appeared justified in the native app and ragged-right in the web app, which I really cana€™t explain. The only difference is in what happens as you make those gestures: the iPad app shows an animation of one page sliding away and another sliding in (and in fact, moves the pages right under your fingers if you choose to swipe from one page to the next). The Cloud Reader doesna€™t support this feature, though its toolbar features a button that lets you view any notes and marks you made elsewhere. The Kindle Cloud Reader, at least in this first iteration, shows some of the limitations of relying on Web technologies. But the Kindle Cloud Reader bears watching: It shows that while native apps have the lead for now, web apps are coming on strong. The platform also offers a holistic view of the user's entire Kindle library, instant access to nearly a million books, an embedded Kindle Store and automatic software updates. Scrolling through the book covers is not as smooth as scrolling in the native app, nor does it feature the intertial-scrolling effect that gives scrolling in an app that extra something. The web app displays most of its menu options via a toolbar that drops down over the top of the page, while the options on the iPad app fade in seamlessly over blank space.
The native app can show book text in two separate columns when you rotate the iPad into landscape mode; the Cloud Reader will only show you a single, wider column. Youa€™ve got quick access to various book lists, and therea€™s a search box to find any other book youa€™re looking for. No, ita€™s not as good as the native appa€”but ita€™s still pretty good, and will undoubtedly get better. Amazon's move toward HTML5 plays to the company's increased interest in the cloud, and offers a hard rebuke to Apple's mobile policies. Ita€™s instant gratification on a level that users of the Kindle store on the iPad havena€™t gotten before.
And when it comes to buying books, its attractive and integrated Kindle Store is vastly superior to the no-help approach forced on Amazona€™s native app by Applea€™s App Store guidelines. The Kindle Cloud Reader also represents Amazon's next stage in its migration to the consumer cloud, where it will join the music-centric Amazon Cloud Drive and Amazon Cloud Player.
Those platforms will all come into play if Amazon decides to launch its much-rumored tablet later in 2011.
