    Kindle for Android in the Market..

    Just saw "Kindle for Android" in the Market from Amazon Mobile.

    No comments yet...is this the official app?

    *EDIT

    Looks like it is...as they have it on their site with a QR code.

    Thanks for the heads up! I've really been looking forward to this I had it on my old Blackberry and I really missed it on the Droid.

    The feature I like the most is to make the letters white on a black background. It's a lot easier on the eyes with a back-lit screen that way.

    It seems to work pretty well.

    Any tips you Kindle vets would like to pass along to us?

    WOW, it works GREAT.
    Mind synced, I opened the book I am reading and the app asked me if I wanted to go to the last page I read on the Kindle. Nice!

    Thank you. I downloaded it from the market and it syncs up nicely with the books I have from Amazon. Opened up where I left off on one of them. I have the Kindle for PC (and PC2 on my netbook), but don't read that much on them. I read a lot on my cell phone since I've got my droid. I changed my background to Sepia with black letters (only choice for sepia). I like the black background and white letters for dark places (car at lunch when I need to get away from people and phones) or before I go to bed. I probably should have it that way all the time, but I thought I'd try out Sepia since Kindle has it.

    No tips here that I could think of.
    ETA: I had this Kindle Forum saved on my favorites. Has some posts on Kindle that might help. Also check out FREE (and very inexpensive) books for the Kindle (link) a pretty good start if you want to start there for some books to try them out on your Android phone.

    Kindle!

    Either I am useless at finding things on this forum or nobody has posted that there is now a free kindle app!
    I've been using it, seems to work well.
    I only have the books I bought from Amazon on there, though, I wonder how I can get books that have been shared with me (legally!) to sync up. Regardless, I'm pretty friggen psyched!

    Maybe you should get Aldiko and see if they work there. If not, there are some conversion programs that might do it.
