A great e-reader with one catch

The Kindle app for iOS supports the Send to Kindle feature, which allows you to send files to your account in the cloud and access them from your device. Supported file types include JPEG, DOC, RTF, and PDF.

The Kindle app for iOS supports the Send to Kindle feature, which allows you to send files to your account in the cloud and access them from your device. Supported file types include JPEG, DOC, RTF, and PDF.

Often overlooked is Kindle's Instapaper-like "read later" feature. Using a bookmarklet or browser extension on your desktop Web browser, you can actually save articles from the Web and use the Send to Kindle function to read them from your iOS device. While this feature might not be the best way to keep a long list of articles you like, it is great for staying on top of ones that you plan to read very soon.

If you're not keen on having to jump through a couple of hoops to browse and buy books, then you might stick with Apple's iBooks. Otherwise, Kindle for iOS is a perfectly capable e-reader app that has several noteworthy features. Plus, it's the no-brainer choice for those already committed to the Amazon ecosystem.

A compelling iBooks alternative

from Macworld

iBooks is very good, too. But the Kindle app shines in many ways, and it works great. If you’d rather avoid iOS lock-in for your ebooks, there are few disappointments to the Kindle app experience.

Gives you access to Amazon's huge e-book selection

If you can't find the book you're looking for, no e-reader doodad is going to help you. With about ten times as many books available, Kindle for iPad has a real selection advantage over iBooks, but Barnes & Noble even doubles that, and adds support for borrowing public library books. In addition to the larger book selection, Kindle for iPad offers a couple of advantages over iBooks, particularly its reverse text view and ability to hide the iPad status bar. If you had to decide right now on an e-reader for your iPad (and don't require color images or a built-in dictionary), I'd recommend the Kindle for iPad for its much larger selection and reading niceties.
