Open letter to Jeff Bezos

Dear Mr. Bezos
I have been a happy Amazon costumer for a long time, I have buy over 100 books on kindle, and two kindles, one first generation and a second generation one too. I also use the kindle application on my iPhone, and now on my iPad.
I was looking forward to the iPad application on the kindle, but was quickly disappointed, for some reason I can’t see the book in two column, and honestly the wide column is distracting for me. I hate to say that the iBook application on the horizontal form beats the kindle, without any effort.
Also I ignore if the reason the iPhone and iPad application lack a dictionary, I don’t know if it is a license issue and/or an Apple limitation, since otherwise I consider another short coming of this application.
I think is great the job Amazon is doing getting the content in all kind of devices and allow you to use whispersync to keep up, that actually is fantastic, but why the lack of features and the application looks incomplete.
Again I love the format, the content and I hope to continue playing with this platform for the years to come, but for now I will limit my reading of Kindle books in the iPhone until Amazon can do a better job with the application on the iPad.
If Apple came with an equivalent of whisper sync as they offer, I will begin moving on, as I did years ago from eReader to the Kindle.
I hope Amazon can surprise us with an update and improve application.
Thanks a lot for your time.
