Nobody is going to choose to read via the website instead of the app. I like the web option for when I'm on my computer for work and need a quick break. It's nice. But it's not nearly as nice as reading via the kindle app on my iPad.
Not the webreader. The Kindle Cloud webapp. It looks like the regular app and will download books to your iPad. But you can buy books from within the app, and buy samples by clicking a button at the end of the sample.
