Amazon has launched its Kindle Cloud Reader app in India. It is essentially a reading app that lets you read the books in your Kindle library on a web browser offline and without the need to download or install anything. It is compatible with desktop web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer (version 10 and above), as well as Safari on an Apple iPad.
“Kindle Cloud Reader is another big step in our ‘Buy Once, Read Everywhere’ mission,” Amazon India’s VP and country Manager, Amit Agarwal said. “With Kindle Cloud Reader, you can truly start reading instantly — no download or installation. We think customers in India are going to love this new Kindle app.”
Quite similar to other Kindle apps, the Kindle Cloud Reader will sync your books and you will be able to resume reading your last book from where you left off. The app also allows you to save books offline, so you won’t need an Internet connection to read it.
The app also offers other functionalities like the ability to bookmark, create notes and highlight any text in the eBook. You will also be able to revisit and searching inside the book to find a particular topic, character or selection.
