Kindle App Available for WP7!

Wednesday, January 5, 2011 10:03 AM

It’s finally here: the Kindle app for Windows Phone 7! Finally we can have our books on the go as well!

It’s not sitting atop the “new” list on the WP7 marketplace though. I had to go to the Books section of the marketplace, and there its set to the top spot of free apps.

I’m going to read the next chapter in my current book on it to see what the experience is like. After playing quickly with it, here’s some observations:

- You flip pages going left to right, not up and down. No setting to change this if you don’t like it.

- Good options for changing font size, background colour, and setting bookmarks.

- *No* option for highlighting though. However, previous highlights do show up and you can review notes made in other programs

Still, for a free Kindle reader and the ability to catch up on books wherever on the phone, so far so good!
