Now you don't need a Kindle eReader to buy and read the 360,000+ books Amazon sells in its annoyingly proprietary Kindle format. The desktop app supports color photos, multi-touch pinch-zooms, and displays notes/highlights marked on Kindles and the iPhone.


As for the Mac version? We're still told that's coming soon. [Beta Download | Press Release]
