The Kindle for iPad doesn't have X-Ray or the Share features, but otherwise it is the best looking of the Kindle apps.
Totally agree that my Fire HD is a great reader but a terrible tablet otherwise. I just took it on a Thanksgiving trip to see family. I took it solely because of its small size. I read on the airplanes and watched videos at night. It worked, but not that well. Android really blows chunks IMO. In retrospect I should have taken my iPad 3 instead! Apps just work so much better on the iPads.
