Macmillani’s ebook business has grown to include ebooks as well as audio books, and HarperCollins has said that its new ebook platform will enable people to find the best books on any device.
HarperCollins’s chief executive, Eric Miller, told reporters that his company was “very excited” to see Amazon and Kindle become a part of Macmillania’s ecosystem.
“We are excited about the new platform and its capabilities to make finding books on Macmillans Kindle or Amazon easier,” Miller said.
“It’s a game changer.”
HarperCollins said that people who bought Macmillanic ebooks would be able to download them from the company’s Kindle app, and that they would also be able use the new app to search for ebooks and purchase books.
Macmillain said it was also planning to offer the ability to download and share Macmillanian books on the Kindle platform.
But some readers are already complaining that the Kindle app is not as easy to use as the Kindle’s Kindle Books app.
A user on a blog called the Macmillains Book Blog wrote that he tried to buy a Macmillian book and couldn’t find it because of the Kindle Books problem.
“My Kindle didn’t have the right icon on the title bar,” the user wrote.
“The icon was not there for me to find Macmillancs book on Kindle.”
The Macmillanean book was the first book he had bought.
He also complained that the MacMillain’s Book Blog website was not working properly and that the books were being delayed.
He said he has not yet heard from Macmillinians representatives about any issues with their new Kindle app.
MacMillani’s Kindle Book Blog also said that they are “working on a new Kindle App to bring all the Macmannian ebooks to Kindle, so people can purchase and read them anywhere.”
HarperCollins is one of many publishers who have been struggling to compete with Amazon and Apple, both of which are pushing publishers to innovate their ebooks, particularly in audio books.
Amazon is also making it easier for people to purchase Kindle books through the Kindle App.
In a blog post this week, Amazon said it is “working to make it easier to buy and read audio books.”
Amazon also said it will add a new feature called “Bookmarks” that allows people to share bookmarks with friends and family.
Amazon also announced that it would be adding a new version of Kindle Bookstore to the Kindle Store in a bid to make reading books easier.
Last month, Amazon announced that the company would start offering a Kindle for Mac app that will let users “read books on their Mac, Kindle or Apple TV with their Kindle.”
That’s a big step forward for Amazon, which has struggled to make its Kindle software work well on tablets and smartphones.
Macmamain’s ebook platform also includes an option to buy audio books on Amazon’s Kindle platform, as well.
Apple also announced plans for a new audio book store called Audible.
The new store is not yet live.
Macmurans new Kindle store is a bit more difficult to use, however.
Amazon’s new Kindle Books and eBooks app was recently released on iOS.
