Amazon.com, Inc. has announced its Kindle App for iPad is now available in all countries where the iPad is offered. The app lets users select from books available in the Kindle Store on iPad and features Amazon Whispersync technology that saves and synchronizes customers’ last page read, bookmarks, notes and highlights across their Kindle, Kindle DX, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, iPad and more.

“We’re thrilled to make Kindle for iPad available to readers around the world,” said Jay Marine, director, Amazon Kindle. “Kindle for iPad includes all the features customers love about Kindle for iPhone, including great selection and synchronization of their books across a variety of Kindle apps, along with a beautiful new user interface tailored to the look and feel of iPad. Kindle for iPad is the perfect companion for the millions of customers who already own a Kindle or Kindle DX, and a way for customers to download and enjoy books even if they don’t yet have a Kindle.”

U.S. customers can choose from over 550,000 books available in the Kindle Store, including new releases and bestsellers. Customers can search for a specific book or browse by genre or author, and can take advantage of all the features that customers enjoy in the Kindle Store, including Amazon.com customer reviews, personalized recommendations and editorial reviews.

Features of the Kindle App for iPad include automatic synchronisation with Kindle and Kindle Compatible Devices, using Amazon’s Whispersync technology that automatically syncs customers’ last page read, bookmarks, notes and highlights across Kindle, Kindle DX, Kindle for iPhone, Kindle for Mac, Kindle for iPad and more. Customers can read on their Kindle, read some on their iPad or Mac, and always pick up where they left off.

The Kindle App user interface is tailored to the large size, look and feel of iPad. Customers can choose to dim iPad’s screen within the app to make reading easier regardless of the ambient light or time of day. Readers can also choose from three different background colors and alter the font color and size to customize the reading experience and help ease the strain on their eyes.

The Kindle App for iPad is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
