Now kindle fans don’t have to carry two tablets while still be able to enjoy their favorite ebooks, thanks to Amazon’s Kindle app. This app offers Amazon’s clever “Whispersync” feature.
It allows for seamless switching between the Kindle device and Kindle for iPhone. Not just that, Whispersync knows where you are in a book, so you can read half a chapter and later your Kindle device will give you the option to pick up where you left off.
