Mobile app of the day: Kindle

If you're a Kindle owner and you have not downloaded the app for your phone then you are missing out. With the ability to synchronise to your Kindle account you can have access to your library of eBooks even when you forget to take your Kindle device with you. Books will even synchronise to the last place you stopped reading so you can pick up on one device where you left off on another. And of course you can shop at Amazon from your phone too.

Other features include the ability to add highlights and notes to what you are reading – and these are synchronised across your various reading devices too. Don't fret about the size of the text being too small to read on your handset, either. You can change the font used and its size, as well as opting for different colour text and backgrounds to make things as easy on the eye as possible.

I'm an avid reader, so I'm biased, but I think all Kindle owners should download the Kindle app. After all, you never know when you'll get stuck on the bus, be left waiting for a friend to show up, or simply have a few unexpected minutes in the day. Why waste them when you could be reading?
