Enjoy your ebooks in perfect iPad Retina quality with Amazon's Kindle 3.0

An iPad running the Kindle app

Those of you already lining up for your new iPad will be happy to hear that it will be ready for e-reading right out of the gate thanks to the recently-updated Kindle application. Version 3.0 supports the 3rd.-generation iPad's Retina display, which means text will be super-sharp, book covers will be crazy high-resolution, and all of the UI elements will be appropriately updated.

Apple has always been big on fonts and text, on top of their desire to revamp the paper publishing industry with the iPad. Kindle is a big partner towards that goal, even if Amazon is competing with their own tablet. Any big bookworms out there picking up a new iPad? Do you have a particular preference between Kindle, Kobo, and Apple's own iBooks?

Enjoy your ebooks in perfect iPad Retina quality with Amazon's Kindle 3.0


I have stopped buying books on iBooks because I could only read them in one place. I like Amazon's "buy once, read everywhere" policy. I can buy a book and read it on my Kindle touch or read it on my iPad. The low resolution of the older iPad made reading distracting at times for me. I'm curious to see if the retina display will have me grabbing my iPad to read instead of my e-ink Kindle.

iBooks but not for the iBookstore. I read mostly DRM-free ePubs. Kindle won't sync content not purchased from Kindle Store. iBooks will.

Magnificent issues altogether, you simply won a new reader. What may you recommend about your post that you just made a few days in the past? Any positive?

sorry if you subscribed just for the galepmay, I haven't gamed in a while first of all because of intense schooling right now haha and this is just my natural video style. So stayed subbed and wait up, they're coming eventually
