Amazon's Kindle Cloud Reader app, which allows users to read ebooks through their web browser, is now available to all Amazon.com.au customers. In other words, you no longer need a Kindle device to read Kindle ebooks if you have a local account. Hurrah!
The Kindle Cloud Reader app is compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer. It can be accessed free of charge and provides access to Amazon's entire ebook catalogue. As with other Kindle apps, it saves your bookmarks, notes, last page read and bookmarks, notes and automatically synchronizes your Kindle library.
You can also access saved books without an internet connection, which is a huge bonus if you regularly travel with a laptop or tablet in tow. You can also customise various aspects of the UI, including the page layout, font size, text color and background.
The app is web-based and requires no download or installation although you'll naturally need to register if you don't already have an Amazon account. Click here to get the web app, or download the Android and iOS versions here and here, respectively.
