Last fall Amazon rolled out Kindle for PC so you could enjoy your purchased Kindle content on your Windows computer. Last night Amazon released a beta of Kindle for Mac so you could enjoy Kindle content on a Mac. Remember that a Kindle is not needed to use either of these clients or the clients for the iPhone and BlackBerry devices.
Kindle for Mac supports automatically synchronizing between devices via Whispersync, bookmark creation, annotation viewing, and shopping for the more than 450,000 books in the Kindle Store. Amazon stated in the press release that the Kindle application will soon be coming to the Apple iPad, but we already have a Kindle application on the iPhone so they may be working on an optimized version as well. It is nice to see Amazon roll out these applications across as many platforms as possible since it is all about the content and not the reader.
Thanks to MacWorld for the tip on the news.
