Amazon’s Kindle app for iPad has found its way to the App Store just in time for tomorrow morning’s device launch.

Like Kindle apps for other platforms, the iPad app [iTunes link] includes Amazon’s Whispersync technology, which syncs your last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across devices.

The exciting part, however, is all of the iPad-specific features, which include new page turning animations, a library view with pinch, zoom, and scrolling support, and adjustable screen brightness, which attempts to address the “but how will it work in sunlight?” question that surrounds the iPad’s ereader capabilities (and is at the moment, is considered a strength of Amazon’s Kindle device).

Of course, what makes this doubly interesting is that it competes directly with Apple’s new iBookstore, which launched earlier today. The rivalry has sparked a price war between Amazon, Apple, and a number of book publishers. Nonetheless, it looks like Apple is ready to go head-to-head with Amazon in the app store, as its app has been approved with no apparent strings attached.

Kindle for iPad will certainly be one of the first apps we check out when we get our hands on some iPads tomorrow morning. Stay tuned!
