Amazon’s widely praised digital book reader is getting a second home on the iPhone, reports the Washington Post. Amazon is launching a free Kindle app today that has most of the Kindle functions. Though it won't have the Kindle’s ink-and-paper-like screen, the iPhone version will allow users to buy and download any Kindle-compatible book, adjust the type size, and bookmark pages.
It also has a feature that keeps track of your place in each book, even if you're reading it on several different Kindle-friendly devices. With the app, Amazon looks to sell eBooks to people who’d never shell out $360 for a Kindle, and kill the smaller eBook-over-iPhone vendors.
