Foreward: I haven't used an actual Kindle DX in person - I'm assuming the Kindle app is the same experience as the original device. Feel free to correct me if this is not the case.
Does anyone else find the Kindle app experience...lacking? When I look at the difference between reading a book in iBooks and Kindle, it's like night and day.
Books in iBooks FEEL like you're reading a real book (particularly in landscape - that's the only way I like to read on the iPad), whereas in Kindle, you get the title of the book at the top, and beneath that, a bunch of words. No formatting other than having the words in paragraphs. No double page spread, no PAGE numbers for that matter…how do you tell how far along you are in the book, or even the current chapter for that matter?
To me (and yes, this is personal opinion), reading an eBook in the Kindle app is no better than if you were reading a bunch of text off of a computer screen.
Kindle may currently have a lot more choice than iBooks, but it's all about the experience when you read.
Does anyone else feel the same way?
