I have just found out that Amazon has released "Kindle Cloud Reader" this month (August 2011), which is a web-based e-Book application for iPad and other mobile devices.
Amazon Kindle Cloud Reader
Release by amazon.com Inc. in August 2011
Web-based e-Book reader application for iPad and other devices
Amazon has acquired cloudreader.com in July 2011 (reference)
This is a little bit annoying to me, because I have an iPad application called "CloudReaders pdf,cbz,cbr", which is also an e-Book reader application. I have released this application when Apple came up with the first iPad (April 2010), and have more than three quarter million users world-wide.
CloudReader pdf, cbz, cbr
Release by Satoshi Nakajima (me) in April 2010
Native e-Book reader application for IPad and iPhone
I have acquired cloudreaders.com in March 2010.
Even though there is a difference (web-based vs. native), both apps are e-Book readers mostly targeting iPad. Names and logos are too similar, and I see a conflict.
Since I am not a big fan of legal battle, I have decided to just post this entry for now to find out how other people perceive this event (not necessarily from legal point of view, but as a regular business practice as well).
