Mac OS X users who have felt left out of the Kindle-syncing lovefest since Amazon rolled out Kindle for PC in November and Kindle for iPhone a little over a year ago have cause for rejoicing: as of last night, you can download Kindle for Mac for free, if you have OS X 10.5 or 10.6.
From the press release:
Kindle for Mac features Amazon’s Whispersync technology that automatically saves and synchronizes bookmarks and last page read across devices. Whether customers are reading Kindle books on a Kindle, Kindle DX, or one of the free Kindle applications, they can always have their reading with them and never lose their place. With Kindle for Mac, a customer can read some on their Mac, read some on their Kindle, and always pick up where they left off.
With Kindle for Mac, readers can take advantage of the following features:
*Purchase, download, and read hundreds of thousands of books available in the Kindle Store
*Access their library of previously purchased Kindle books stored on Amazon’s servers for free
*Choose from 10 different font sizes and adjust words per line
*Add and automatically synchronize bookmarks and last page read
*View notes and highlights marked on Kindle, Kindle DX, and Kindle for iPhone
*Read books in full color including children’s books, cookbooks, travel books and textbooks
*Several features will be added to the Kindle for Mac app in the near future, including full text search and the ability to create and edit notes and highlights. Kindle for Mac is available to customers around the world as a free download. To download the free app, visit www.amazon.com/kindleformac.
