Amazon posts Kindle for Mac

Buy and read e-books in OS X

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Amazon has rolled out the Mac version of its Kindle-on-a-computer application, and it's open to e-book buyers in the UK.

Like the real Kindle - reviewed here - the Kindle application allows you to buy and download e-books from Amazon's online bookshop. Some 325,000 titles are on offer, the retailer said.

Amazon Kindle for Mac

Books you buy buy don't download - or delete after they've been read - are always accessible at a future time. And Kindle for Mac automatically uploads your bookmarks to Amazon's servers, along with a marker to record what page you're on.

That way, you're ready to carry on reading next time from where you left off - whether you load the book into the same machine or a different one. Kindle software is also available for Windows PCs, BlackBerries, the iPod Touch and iPhone.

Kindle for Mac is free to download and you can get it here. ®
