If you happen to own a Kindle E-reader, then you must be knowing that one can’t use Google’s translation services on the device. The Kindle carries the prestigious honor of being the most sold device on the Amazon market. Although it was the Kindle 3 that performed the best, the Kindle too comes from the same line-up, so it’s okay to assume that the Kindle is now owned by a huge population.
Now what if you’re stuck in a situation where you may need to translate something to understand better or if the webpage you want to view is in another language and all you have is your Kindle. You know you can’t use the Google Translation service because that just won’t work on the Kindle. No worries all you Kindle users out there, because a new web app called Kindlefish will save you the trouble. The app is developed by a certain SeattleFlyerGuy.

The whole process is quite simple, and is a very good Google Translate alternative. All you have to do is visit the web client http://kindlefish.t15.org on your Kindle and start translating instantly. It’s obviously not going to be fast, because the Kindle, lets face it, doesn’t have enough juice in it. Kindlefish uses the Google Translate’s prowess and implements it into it’s web client allowing you to use Google translate services. The web app provides about 3 default language options that you would normally use and almost all the languages except a few Asian and those containing non-Latin alphabets.
Amazon’s main goals seem to launch Kindle app for all important platform. Kindle app is already available for Android, Mac, Windows, Wed App and now Kindle app is also available on Mac App Store that too for free.
As Kindle is already popular and now can be downloaded for free on Mac App Store thus its already on number 5 in most downloaded application. This free app allows you to access more than 775,000 books, you can customize the fonts to better reading, enjoy sample books, read on different iOS devices, search easily via different categories. In short you get all the basic feature which is provided in other Kindle apps. The only thing which you might miss in this app is that it doesn’t include text-to-speech option.
Apart from it, it’s worth downloading. It has got good rating that is 4+ in Mac App Store. Kindle app that too for free on Mac App store makes me think about iBook and what about other eReaders? Do you think that they should also submit their apps to Mac App Store?
