Amazon Readies Kindle App for iPad

In a post detailing its plans for upcoming Kindle apps, Amazon announced that they are working on a version for the iPad. The iPad app is set to feature their Whispersync technology, which allows users to sync bookmarks, notes, and last position from one device to another, meaning you can read one page on the Kindle and pick up where you left off on an iPad. Users will also be able to browse and purchase eBooks from Amazon’s library of 450,000 books directly from the iPad, and any purchase will automatically be available on the user’s Kindle.

Amazon has stated that they will not be releasing the iPad app until it’s been fully tested on an actual iPad — the simulator — which comes out April 3.
