You can now download the Kindle app in the Mac App Store for nothing.

Offering free samples and new releases from $9.99, the Kindle app lets you read works from Amazon's vast e-book collection even if you don't have a Kindle e-reader.

According to Amazon, it will enable you to access more than 775,000 books, including 107 of 111 New York Times Best Sellers.

Kindle for Mac was first launched in March 2010 and was updated in October. Since its move to the Mac App Store, where it is currently the only e-book app on offer, it has become one of the most popular downloads in the store.

It is free to download and joins Kindle apps for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows PCs. The company enables customers to buy an e-book and use it on any compatible device, syncing the last page read, bookmarks and notes between the devices so you can easily pick up where you left off.
