    hi,
    Sorry if this has been answered already (couldn't find anything):

    Can i read a Kindle ebook on my iPad?

    (I think it's possible, maybe with GoodReader?)

    There is an official Kindle app which works better than the actual Kindle for color, maps, photos, etc.

    Amazon supplies an official and free Kindle app, just search for Kindle in the AppStore. After downloading it, simply log in with your amazon account and you have access to all your kindle books.

    As a side-note, kindle ebooks only work with amazon's kindle apps/programs, as they are DRM protected.

    All you have to do is download the Kindle app. Got mine on Amazon.com I think, but probably its in the app store. Just search on Kindle.

    P.S. Just noticed DontUnderstandMyIpad's comment and want to add something to it: I think Kindle is now useable with Overdrive so that you can check out library copies.

    With the app on an iPad and PC, will annotation sync? That is, whatever highlights I make with either device will show up on the other?

    I really thought it did sync notes, but now that you ask can I not get it to sync from one iPad to the other.

    Off to do some more testing...



    Ok, yes, as thought does the Kindle app sync notes and highlights across onto any device you use. After finishing the notes, just go back to the Kindle app Homescreen and press Sync, than Sync from another device and you have all notes shared

    That's my favorite part of the app. I can note, bookmark, whatever and don't have to remember Which device I did it on.
    Each time you start the app it does what's called Whisper Sync that syncs all notes, page points, bookmarks, etc to the device you are starting the app on

    I have a question about Kindle on iPad also. I have A Kindle which I love and I just got my iPad last week. I downloaded the Kindle on my iPad but I was wondering this. I use the 3G on my iPad because I live in a rural area. If I am reading books from my iPad will I be using up my gb that I pay a monthly fee from on AT&T. In other words, when I am reading from my Kindle device, I am not using 3G when I am just reading, but I think anytime I am on my iPad I would be using the 3G, so I am thinking I wouldn't want to read too much on my iPad. Would that be correct?

    Thanks
