In the face of App Store restrictions and reports that the company is to launch its own tablet in the final quarter, Amazon has launched Kindle Cloud Reader, a new web app that allows Amazon users to download and read Kindle books, without the need for a Kindle device.
The new web app has been specifically tailored for the browser and is currently supported by Google’s Chrome software and Apple’s Safari browser, both on the Mac and on the iPad. With Amazon already offering specific applications for the PC, Mac and tablet devices, the new web-based app signals Amazon’s intention to create an experience that can be accessed on any device, by simply visiting the app in the browser.
