amazon kindle pc app

right I may appear stupid here, but is it safe to download the amazon pc app onto my laptop as I dont have a kindle reader, but there are some kindle titles I want to buy from amazon uk. also can i transfer these books onto my sony prs505- as I say sorry if I appear very thick.lol.in advance.
I apologise if there is a thread elsewhere on this subject.

There's no issue with installing the Kindle PC app on your laptop, but you won't be able to transfer the books to your Sony if they've got DRM (most have).

What do you mean by "safe"? Safe in what sense?

sorry I meant that is it a safe download as I once did a download and got a problem on my laptop-that was a media player.

Oh, yes, it's entirely safe in that sense.

I also have no worries about paying as I have used amazon many times and I assume that the payment will just come of my cc I have registered with them.

The Kindle apps are standalone. They act like a reader and don't talk to a real Kindle at all. Nothing stopping you from buying books for the Kindle apps either. They'll just get linked to your Amazon account and if/when you get a real Kindle or install the app elsewhere, you'll get all your Kindle store books there as well.
