Yesterday 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
