Kindle for PC is a free application for reading the Kindle books on PC or notebook. The program allows to manage book collections, import documents, create bookmarks and sync information about read pages without the need of a special e-book device.

Kindle for PC has the basic functions that are necessary for convenient reading and libraries management. They include: file sorting, page scaling, quick switching between pages using titles among other things, creation of different bookmarks and notes. Additionally, the program offers the dark color scheme to read literature in the night time.

The users from “the box” can buy e-books on the official Amazon website. In this case, the program redirects the user to the page of recommended goods which were selected based on his previous search results. The main feature of Kindle for PC is the capability to connect the user’s libraries to his account that makes possible to sync the read material between all the Kindle devices.

The program’s interface is not impressive and resembles a simple e-book previewer. Kindle for PC doesn’t boast pretty icons of its control elements and doesn’t want to follow the latest tendencies of software and interface development much.
