Samsung, Amazon launch Kindle for Samsung app with free ebooks

updated 06:40 am EDT, Thu April 17, 2014

Galaxy owners can claim one free Kindle book from monthly selection

Samsung has entered into a partnership with Amazon to provide owners of its Galaxy smartphone and tablets free books. The Kindle for Samsung app, a custom-built version of Amazon's e-reader just for Galaxy devices, will provide not only access to the online retailer's collection of books and reading material, but will also give app users a free ebook every month.

The Kindle for Samsung app will include Samsung Book Deals, which will provide a rotating group of four titles that the customer can select their free book from. Samsung claims each book is "chosen specifically" for Galaxy device owners. Other than the free books and the lighter user interface, the remainder of the app functions just like the normal Kindle app, importing already-owned Kindle books and using Amazon's Whispersync service.
