Limited browser support (Safari and Chrome only) with a less polished user experience than existing Kindle apps.
Kindle Cloud Reader isn't perfect, but this web-based installation-free alternative to dedicated applications provides one more way for customers to experience their electronic libraries. While the experience is largely the same whether you're reading on an iMac or iPad, using Chrome or Safari, there are caveats to Amazon's cloud.
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.
Kindle Sync is a portable software that allows users to sync the books(in .PRC format) with their Amazon Kindle ebook reader. The usage is quite easy, just put all books(.prc files) in one directory and then point to this directory.
You will find three options on the main window, List Local Books, Search Kindle, and Send to Kindle. Quite similar to other Kindle apps, the Kindle Cloud Reader will sync your books and you will be able to resume reading your last book from where you left off. The app also offers other functionalities like the ability to bookmark, create notes and highlight any text in the eBook. Amazon invests $300 million in India ahead of Prime launch; will it give Netflix, Hotstar a tough competition? This forced many e-book reader developers to come up with a new way to make a profit in the growing dominance Apple has in almost every technology market.
Amazon has made the first response to Apple’s new conditions of using its App Store by introducing the Kindle Cloud Reader.
The Kindle Cloud Reader allows you to take the concept of buy one time, use everywhere to a whole new level.
Amazon developed the Kindle Cloud Reader in a HTML5 environment, this allows it to eventually be used in every browser imaginable. The Kindle Cloud Reader for the iPad was designed separately from the other applications, taking full advantage of the touch screen functionality of the device. A pop-up will appear to install the Cloud Reader in your browser if you are using Chrome or Safari.
Once added, you can sync the Kindle Cloud Reader and when you logon to any other devices with Kindle, you will find them there ready to read or pick up where you started. This allows you to sync titles across the account no matter what device, computer or browser you use to access the Kindle Cloud. If you are using a Kindle and have not checked out the Cloud Reader, you are missing out on an opportunity to stay connected with all your favorite reading material even when you do not have your Kindle in hand.

Kindle may be a great way for you to read all those books on the go but what if you’re on your desktop and you feel like reading one?
It also offers three different color modes and five different font sizes and margin layouts for reading.


We review the best desktop, mobile and web apps and services out there, in addition to useful tips and guides for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows Phone. It also, coincidentally, allows Amazon to integrate the Kindle Store without forking over 30 percent to Apple. As with an actual Kindle, there are back and forward paddles for navigating the text; in addition, there's a slider at the bottom of the screen. You can drop in bookmarks, adjust font size (5 sizes from which to choose), margins (5 sizes, again), or colors (black, white, and sepia), but don't count on doing much more. The big one: Before you jump to another browser or device, tap the "Synchronize" button (in the header), close the book, and return to your library. I had hoped that once I had shrunk the typeface and changed Autobiography to sepia that it would just appear that way in any iteration of Cloud Reader.
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. In layman’s term, you can use this software to transfer ebooks from your computer to Amazon Kindle while keeping the directory structure intact. You can also add books in multiple directories and then use Kindle Sync to point to the root of the directory structure.
The first option lists all books on your local computer, the second option allows you to search for books in your kindle device, while the third option will initiate the transfer. The minimalist design, combined with the ease-of-use makes this a must-have app for all Kindle users out there. One of the reasons for the success is the cross-promotion that Amazon is running on the highly frequented shopping portal website. It is essentially a reading app that lets you read the books in your Kindle library on a web browser offline and without the need to download or install anything.
The app also allows you to save books offline, so you won’t need an Internet connection to read it. You will also be able to revisit and searching inside the book to find a particular topic, character or selection.

They said that developers could sell reader apps but if they wanted to sell books through it Apple had to receive a 30% cut of the profits. While Amazon maybe the first to release something of this nature, they certainly will not be the last. Amazon’s Cloud Reader does everything the Kindle itself does, such as sync your library to multiple devices, keep you at the last page read, bookmark pages and gives you a direct link to the Kindle Store.
For the moment, the Cloud Reader was only released for the Google Chrome browser, iOS and the Mac Safari browser. Amazon promises to release versions compatible for Internet Explorer, Android and other mobile phone software in the near future.
However, if you want sync your purchases to multiple devices or check out the limited settings, you can click either icon in the left hand bar at the top of your screen.
Since you manage your library more through each title than you do overall, you can check out the help, terms of use and legal notices through the settings. From here, you can search, buy, download for free and find books, games and more to add to your Kindle Cloud.
If you have not downloaded anything onto your device before, this will be your first stop to start that process. In a few seconds, you will be able to begin reading the title you purchased from the Kindle Store. It was easy to sign in, easy to use and I quickly found titles that interested me for free.

An excellent feature of Cloud Reader is that it ensures no matter what size the window that you’re reading in is, the text is always readable. Mobile browsers can also swipe left and right to navigate, though the action is less smooth than that of a dedicated app.
I was able to neither create new nor view existing notes (in fact, even though I could see an existing note icon, I couldn't read open it).
For example, I tried the same process using Holmes, this time starting in Chrome and moving to mobile Safari. Safari and Chrome only), it has a few syncing glitches (retaining pages and accessing notes), and it could use a few features (full-page reading and text search).
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. Kindle Reader or Fire owners can purchase books optimized for the reader on the Amazon website. It is compatible with desktop web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer (version 10 and above), as well as Safari on an Apple iPad.
Offline Mode allows you to have access to the books and games you download when not connected to the Internet or 3G service on a device.
You can find all the common Kindle features at the bottom of the screen now to enlarge the text, save your spot or bookmark an area. The Kindle Cloud Reader made it seamless to download titles, sync them and then download then to my iTouch. There are a lot of interesting books which you can choose and surely reading books will never waste your time, but it can be really a quality time.
The service connects with your Amazon account, makes all eBooks available for reading and syncs them so you can continue reading them offline. Text-search, a favorite of students and academics, is also missing from the browser-based interface.
I dropped in a couple of bookmarks, changed the color (to sepia), and scrolled to the mid-way point; however, when I opened the text in Safari, the changes hadn't taken effect. And, as aforementioned, even though you can sync textual notes from the dedicated Kindle App, don't expect to see or edit those notes from Chrome or Safari.
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. As part of the promotion, free Kindle ebooks are offered on the site next to regular ebooks that need to be bought before they can be read.What many users do not know is that they can download and read the free ebooks even if they do not own a Kindle. With Apple cracking down on how e-books are bought, Amazon has turned around and given them a run for their money by introducing the Cloud Reader. Nowadays, books have been in a form of e-book, and it is easier for you to read the books, because you do not need to bring plenty of books. While Amazon already has dedicated mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone 7, Blackberry, and desktop applications for Windows and Mac, by creating a browser-based solution the company has created an installation-free alternative for experiencing Kindle libraries. 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.
There are also a lot of websites such as Kindle Cloud Reader which can provide you with e-books, both the free and purchased books. Amazon has created free reading apps for many mobile devices and desktop operating systems.
The habit I have gotten into is dropping a bookmark where I leave off: bookmarks, in my experience, consistently travel from browser to browser, device to device.
At the time of writing, the Kindle Reader software is available for Windows PCs, Apple Macintosh systems as well as iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Android and Windows Phone 7 devices. While you should not expect the latest bestsellers offered for free in the listing, you will certainly find some books of interest listed there.
You can use the categories on the left to display the top 100 free ebooks for a particular category that you are interested in instead. You also have nonfiction categories, biographies, graphic novels and other listings on the site to explore.
In customizing, you can change size of the font, color of background and the texts, and other customization.
With those things, it is easier for you to read and you still can continue your reading when you cannot accomplish it. With Kindle Cloud Reader, you can have your own library by selecting several interesting books. In searching the book, you can look for popular and recent books or you can look for the book by its author or title. When you do that for the first time, you may need to select the reader app that you intent to use.Future selections should not show that selection screen anymore. The book will automatically be synced with the selected reader app.There are other sites that let you download free ebooks for Kindle devices. If you like reading on the computer or mobile devices, then this option could be interesting for you. Amazon offers a large selection of free ebooks for Kindle in nearly every category imaginable.
