Amazon.com has released its free Kindle for Mac application that allows users to read books from the Kindle Store on their Mac computers.

Kindle for Mac is Amazon’s latest application aimed at expanding Kindle content to a wider range of devices. Kindle books can now be read on the iPhone, iPod touch, BlackBerry, PC and Mac. Amazon said it also plans a Kindle app for Apple’s upcoming iPad tablet. Also look for Amazon to possibly release a Kindle app for Android somewhere down the road.

"Kindle for Mac is the perfect companion application for customers who own a Kindle or Kindle DX," said Jay Marine, director, Amazon Kindle.


"For those customers around the world who don’t yet have a Kindle, Kindle for Mac is a great way to instantly access and read the most popular new releases as well as their old favorites."

Kindle for Mac features Amazon’s Whispersync technology that automatically saves and synchronizes bookmarks and last page read across devices. Kindle for Mac allows users to read some on their Mac and some on a Kindle, while saving their place.

Amazon says several new features will be added to the Kindle for Map app in the near future, including full text search and the ability to create and edit notes and highlights.

    Just ensure your Kindle iPhone app works correctly on the iPad and we’ll all call it even. End users should not have to uncheck the automatically download updates on Kindle for Mac. It would be nice if the user could click>hold>drag to highlight all books in archived items section to download all. Overall it feels bare and rushed to market just in time to steal thunder from April’s iPad release.

    This is a very poor application. Amazon should never have released Kindle for the Mac. They don’t understand (or care) about software quality and how defective products impact customer loyalty.
