Hot on the heels of the Kindle Fire update comes an update for Amazon’s iOS app, and there are some big changes.
Here are the updates/changes:
- iPad users can now download and read all of the 400 magazines and newspapers available in Amazon’s Kindle Fire newsstand.
- You can now read “print replica textbooks” on your iPad, which include “rich formatting and layout of the print editions and support for notes and highlights, zoom and pan, and linked table of contents.”
iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch Updates
And then straight from the horse’s mouth (in this case iTunes), here are the updates for the other devices (plus the updates that also apply to the iPad):
- Email documents to your new Send-to-Kindle e-mail address and we deliver them to your device. The documents are automatically archived in the Amazon Cloud and available for re-download on your iOS or supported Kindle devices.
- Open PDFs from Mail or Safari, by transferring them from iTunes, or by sending them to your Send-to-Kindle email address. The Kindle PDF reader supports PDF table of contents and thumbnail navigation for quickly jumping through the document.
- New library organization allows you to view your Kindle Books, Newsstand, and Docs.
I personally don’t have an iOS devices so I can’t attest to the effectiveness of these changes and updates, but they look great.
