I have been trying Oyster for ebooks, the IOS app. There are a lot more selections than the website shows. I wonder when Amazon will jump on the bandwagon with a similar plan?

It's a great time for bookworms to be alive!

Hasn't Oyster been around for a while? I thought I saw something about it when I first started hanging around this forum (2010 - when I bought my KK).

Isn't this still in Beta test by invitation?

I don't recall seeing the word Beta, however, what does it really mean anymore? Apple sends out an update to IOS and then fixes the bugs and I won't mention Microsoft. Oyster works well, I haven't had issues, but seems like they are very responsive to Facebook questions.

There are huge differences in Beta and Production. Beta hasn't been fully developed and tested. It's almost impossible to create a large scale application that has NO bugs.

The major publishers HATE Amazon. Amazon will have a much harder time getting the cooperation of major publishers than Oyster.
