Amazon Updates iOS Kindle App

ios Kindle app updateYesterday Amazon released and update to the Kindle app for Apple devices to go along with the update to iOS 7.  It was more than a visual update.  The update brought the app in line with many of the features of the stand alone ereaders.

The main two feature updates are

  • X-Ray – a potentially helpful way to follow characters and see the basic outline of a book
  • Upgraded categories functionality to allow a book to be in more than one category.  This allows categories to act more like tags then folders. Personally I use a folder for current reading, but I also leave the book in a content category (fiction, theology, review books, etc.)

This is in addition to updates over the last year that have added multi-color highlighting, better dictionary lookup, ability to get book samples, social media access
