Amazon was frankly slow to bring its e-book software to Macs. The PC desktop client came first, and a pared-down Mac application only eventually followed in March.
Amazon updates Kindle for Mac
I still think it might be the most powerful e-reading application available on the desktop. Even generic readers beat Kindle's UI. Amazon just didn't seem serious about Mac support, or desktop readers at all. A few days ago, I noticed that even though I'd been buying Kindle books again, I didn't even have the Kindle app on my Mac.

I hadn't bothered to transfer it over from my old machine. So I go to Amazon's site and download the application, open it up — and I'm astonished. I thought I was hallucinating, or my memory was faulty. Actually, I'd just downloaded the brand new app a day before it had been officially announced. Improved WhisperSync support means that I can read a book on my Kindle, open it on my Mac, and it will open to the last page read on the Kindle.
Kindle on the Mac App Store
When I open the same book on the Kindle again, I have the option to pick up where I left off either on the Kindle or the Mac. I actually like that it's a prompt on the Kindle, rather than an automatic sync; on the desktop too, I can toggle between last page read on Kindle or last page read on Mac, but it's a menu option rather than a prompt.
Just because Amazon's finally getting serious about the Mac doesn't mean it's neglecting software updates for the Kindle; only a week after the 3. As you might guess from its version number, it's a minor release, offering some performance improvements moderately faster page syncing and page turns, mostly and reportedly plugging some security gaps.
