From Ebook Friendly:
Amazon has just introduced Kindle Windows 8 app. It’s ready for download from Windows Store.
. . . .
The new Kindle app offers standard features that are available in other Kindle apps, including Whispersync – a technology which automatically syncs last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across all the Kindle devices and/or apps you own or have access to.
What’s very important, the app is available worldwide in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. You’ll get instant access to over 1.5 million books – and that includes over 200,000 titles, which are exclusive to Kindle Store (you can’t find them in any other ebookstore). Over 650,000 books are priced at $4.99 or less; over 1.2 million are $9.99 or less.
Using the new features of Windows 8, the Kindle app enables customers to pin their books to the Start screen for instant access to their favorite titles and search their library and Kindle store with the Search charm.
