If you own an iphone and are an avid reader this is a great app. If you own a kindle this is a must have app. If you don't own a kindle and have been thinking about getting one the Kindle App is a great way to test your ability to read digitally before investing in a Kindle.

Having it on my iPhone has enabled me reading opportunities that I wouldn't have had before. I am reading everywhere with a device that is already on me at all times. It's easy … more

The "Kindle" is a e-book reader that uses "electronic ink" instead of an LCD screen for it's display.
