Amazon Kindle App Hits Windows Phone 7

By Updated on

Back in October last year, Amazon revealed its plans to bring the popular Kindle app to Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Operating System (OS). However, rather than launching the app right away, the online retailer waited until the New Year to release the application.

We have some great news now for those who were waiting for the Amazon Kindle app to arrive, as Evan Selleck over at slashgear.com has recently reported that the application has finally arrived and is now available to download onto your Windows Phone 7 devices.

The app – which is free to download – provides users with access to Amazon’s Whispersync technology, which tracks the last page they read and enables them to pick up right where they left off. Windows Phone 7 owners will also have access to a library of over 750,000 books.

Users will have access to new releases, best sellers and even a list of free classics such as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Pride and Prejudice. If you’re a bit unsure about a certain book, then the free book samples enables you to read the first chapter before deciding to buy it or not.

As mentioned over at marketplacebrowser.com, it even allows you to customize your reading experience by choosing the font size and background color you like, as well as portrait or landscape format. Would you download the Amazon Kindle app for your Windows Phone 7 device?
