It seems that Amazon doesn’t want me to miss its Kindle app. After getting Kindle for iPhone and Kindle for PC, here comes its latest iteration – Kindle for BlackBerry. I was actually waiting for the Kindle for Mac but it seems that this would still take some time. To think that I just got a BlackBerry Bold 9700 a fews ago. So, there you go folks, if you’re a BlackBerry User you may now download Kindle for BlackBerry.
The app syncs across all your Kindle accounts of course. So that when you purchase an e-book from the Kindle store through your BlackBerry app, you can still read from your PC, iPhone, iPod touch and possibly soon on your iPad, if you’re planning to get one. Of course, it goes without saying that it’s also available on the various models of Kindle e-Reader, whichever you have right now and whether you are planning to get one soon.
Here are the other major features of Kindle for BlackBerry:
- Search and browse more than 420,000 books, including 102 of 112 New York Times Bestsellers, directly from their BlackBerry
