8 Amazon Kindle Apps You Must See

Any time Amazon's Kindle e-reader gets an app store later in 2010, app developers will have tokindle dx amazon online marketplace get creative. Though the Kindle has a huge screen and can browse the net, it's no iPad in phrases of capabilities. We've heard the Kindle app store will contain travel books with weather and also news updates, simple games for instance crossword puzzles, and a continuously updating Zagat restaurant guide, but below are a few other ideas:

  • Book Sale Person
Like AppMiner and AppSniper around the iPhone, a book sale person could scan the Kindle Retailer for currently discounted e-books. If at all possible, you'd even be able to create a watch list for your chosen books and get e-mail alerts when they're reduced.

  • Sports Scores
The right companion to football Sunday, an app like ESPN Scorecenter could be great on the Kindle's 6-inch exhibit. Variants of this app could possibly be geared more towards fantasy sporting activities fanatics, allowing them to track all their players.

  • Twitter
A Twitter app seems ideal for the Kindle. You'd just scroll through your friends' updates with all the page buttons, and bang out 140-word updates around the Kindle's keyboard.

  • Kindle Web Sites
The Kindle already allows you to read newspapers and blogs, but a Kindle app store would let any Internet site develop a version that's optimized for your e-reader. First on the agenda needs to be Kindle-optimized version of the ARE UNSUCCESSFUL Blog.

  • Dining Menus
Just plug within your location, and this app would certainly pull up menus from location restaurants. The Kindle's page buttons would enable you to skip between eateries, and you'd manage to narrow it down by variety.

  • Google Docs
Though typing is not a breeze on the Kindle, if you are viewing documents it'd be nice to produce edits, especially when collaborating together with other users.

  • Sheet Audio
Not everyone's a musician, but a book of electric guitar tablature or horn charts could spawn a fresh niche of Kindle users, particularly for the large-screen Kindle DX. It'd be especially awesome in the event the tablature app counted time using a metronome and automatically switched web pages.

  • Space Invaders
I'm not entirely sure the particular Kindle's display and processor can handle Space Invaders (or even, that'd be so sad), but it's more pleasurable to imagine than crosswords and also Sudoku. It's a stretch, but maybe Kindle Space Intruders would harken back to yesteryear's grayscale vector displays.
