Default native ebook apps yes or no?

Been wondering for a while whether to get an ebook made as a native app or just keep on Amazon and let people view through kindle app? WOULD Native app sell better? How do you make a native app anyway?

I'd prefer the ebook. I don't think the native app would sell better, and if people could not be bothered to install an ebook reader why should they be bothered to install your app? Chances are that people who likes to read would already have the free kindle app on their devices.

and they are actively searching for books for that app.

Couldn't you just read a pdf straight from the website?
