The newly announced Kindle Cloud Reader has reimagined the Internet in a way which takes the user experience to a new world. HTML5, the new way of building webpages, has been out for quite some time now but it is the first time that Kindle Cloud Reader has managed to use it so beautifully.
The Kindle Cloud Reader looks great just like other apps on iPad, but the fact it is also available offline is a huge plus for the users. They will now be able to read their favourite books even when they are not connected to the Internet. There are other sites which do have offline modes, but take the example of Gmail which does not have an offline outbox — they are not complete.
The user interface is as polished as on any of the Amazon apps with an added benefit — there is no need to install anything on the tablet or the phone. The users who want to read the books in a browser, however, need to sacrifice some of the benefits of the apps – text search, full screen reading and notes are not supported on the cloud reader.
This affords a new type of convenience to the readers on Android tablets and iPads, and that’s the way most websites should work on the Internet.
