Kindle for iPad Hits the App Store [Mashable]

See the full post and the Amazon press release for more details. 

Amazon’s Kindle app for iPad has found its way into the App Store just in time for tomorrow morning’s device launch. Like Kindle apps for other platforms, the iPad app [iTunes link] includes Amazon’s Whispersync technology, which syncs your last page read, bookmarks, notes and highlights across devices.

The exciting part, however, is all of the iPad-specific features, including new page turning animations, a library view with pinch, zoom and scrolling support, and adjustable screen brightness. The latter attempts to address the “but how will it work in sunlight?” question that has hounded the iPad’s intention to function as an e-reader (and is, at the moment, considered a winning element of Amazon’s Kindle device).
