This interesting article in TidBITs talks about Amazon's plans for its Kindle app for the iPad and links to this page on Amazon which gives some info. And best of all, the article points out that the Kindle Store has quite a few books available at no cost so that you can test the software. And it gives this link that shows all Kindle books costing $0.



A Day in the Life of an iPastor

A baptist minister manages his ministry and personal life with the help of his iPhone

I have found that my iPhone is an invaluable aid in my work as a Baptist minister. This article describes a typical day in my personal and professional life.

MantisBible6:45 a.m.—My iPhone wakes me up so I can take my son to school. On the way, we open the Mantis Bible Study (Free; mantis bible.com), a great little app that allows us to read a verse of scripture on the way to school. I really like the app’s daily Bible reading tracker, which reveals progress in your Bible reading.

eBook readers: Kindle app or Barnes & Noble?

I am a ferocious reader and I absolutely love books. That said, hacking down billions of trees just to make paper seems increasingly irresponsible, and a gradual migration to eBooks is probably inevitable. I've had the Kindle app on my iPhone ever since it came out, and have downloaded and read dozens of books on it. Unfortunately, the shorter battery life of the 3GS compared to my original iPhone means I am using the iPhone less often as a book reader (especially on long flights), but I haven't given up on the concept just yet. So if you like reading books on your iPhone, what's the best way? As is, while I like Amazon and the Kindle app, Barnes & Noble remains a formidable force in the book market and so I decided to check out the Barnes & Noble eReader as well.


Top Healthcare Apps for New Parents

Apps that help parents manage their children's health and make better healthcare decistion

As healthcare providers for young children, we’re very aware of the challenges faced by new parents and the common mistakes they make. There are a few iPhone apps that can help parents provide better healthcare for their children. Note that these apps do not replace the need to consult healthcare professionals. For example, the first app helps you track medication dosages and timing when you’re caring for a child with a fever and even gives dosage recommendations. You should always consult a professional about which medication to use and to confirm dosage and timing recommendations.

Releasing the iPhone Kindle app is probably the smartest move Amazon has made since introducing the Kindle. While the Kindle app is pretty bare bones, it does offer a few significant features that make it worth a closer look First of all, it’s tied to Amazon.com, and all of the 200,000+ books available for the Kindle can be read with the iPhone Kindle app. In addition, the prices of Kindle eBooks are very competitive, with most best-sellers costing $9.99 or less.

Amazon Kindle ebook reader updated

I love this application. From what I've read, Kindle for iPhone isn't the best ebook reader. But it certainly suits my needs. What I like best is the ease of putting books on my iPhone and the opportunity to download samples. I'm currently reading The Well Dressed Ape. It's the perfect book for reading on the iPhone because it has lots of fascinating bite-sized bits of information.



Amazon.com now optimized for iPhone

Earlier this week Amazon launched an iPhone-friendly version of its website. When you go to Amazon.com in Safari on your iPhone or iPod Touch, it automatically gives you the iPhone version (and gives you the option of seeing the PC version, if you want). This is the whole Amazon site, not just the Kindle ebook area. If you do a search, you can, just like the desktop site, search any specific area of the site, or choose just to search the Kindle area.
