Windows Phone 7 Amazon Kindle app now available

WP7 finally gets an eReader app worthy of the name

Sync books across your devices and save the page. Nice.

It has been a long time coming, but the Amazon Kindle app for Windows Phone 7 handsets is finally available to download, giving the platform its first real eReader option.

The Kindle app, which we first reported on back in late October, gives the reported 1.5 million Windows Phone 7 owners their first opportunity to sample the 725,000 titles available from Amazon to smartphone platforms.

The app will also allow keen readers to sync their purchases across all of their devices, which means if you're reading on your iPad, you'll be able to save your page and pick up where you left off on your WP7 handset.

Kindle, which is free to download for Windows Phone 7 from the Marketplace, will also feature the ability to send book recommendations to friends and receive your own recommendations on the apps homepage.

Yesterday Amazon confirmed that the Kindle app would also be coming to Android and Windows tablets.
