Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. My first thoughts: Yeah, now Android has a Kindle app too…great. BUT, why is launched a day after a way better iPhone/iPAd version of the app was launched?

    They are just asking for comparisons here. And the glaring omissions will not go unnoticed.

    It’s predicatable that they would go for the larger market of iPhone/iPad users (There was a line of thousands to buy that phone last week, cmon), but treating Android users like second class citizens will not win them any fans.

    Found a more detailed post about the app itself at Techcrunch:

  2. No reason to not just release what they have now while they develop the better version. It’s not an instant process, and there’s no reason to hold out in the meantime.

    Yes, I’d agree that in the future the releases should be synced.
