‘Kindle for iPhone’ in my iPod Touch

I do not know when Kindle for iPhone application became available here in Philippines. Because the last time I checked for it was 2 weeks ago, it was still not available in the App Store. Anyway, a friend told me about it that he was able to download a kindle on his iPhone. So I checked it earlier today, and indeed, it is now available for download here in the Philippines, and it’s FREE.

I am not really interested with Kindle hardware for the reason that physical books are something more satisfying to read — it is just me. And, I tried it using Mark’s, it’s kinda heavy — not that friendly when you read lying on bed which is how I usually read books (yes, that is why I have bad eye sight.).

The thing I like about having a kindle in my iPod is just for the heck of it. Really, the good thing about it is that I can share mark’s books on my iPod — one way of making the most out of the books he bought. I think a book you bought for kindle can be shared up to 9 kindle devices.

Yes, I do have a ‘Kindle for iPhone’ in my iPod. I also have YugaTech application. I only read yugatech when it has the ipod/iphone application already.

Nice thing about kindle is you can get sample chapters of book for free like the one below, ‘What the Dog Saw’ by Malcolm Gladwell. I have read a few pages, and it is quite interesting.

I like it though I have not tried any pdf reader for iPod touch. My only question is how it consumes battery life of my iPod. It is a known downside for iPod touch is that battery easily gets drain when use to the maximum. I’ll see.

Goodbye to real physical books? Of course, not.
