Just a couple of months ago, Kindle for iOS received support for children’s books and graphic novels in version 3.1 of the popular application. Now, e-book reading iDevice owners can enjoy another Kindle update, which adds adjustable margins to the iPad app, new layouts, and a notebook “for print replica textbooks.” Version 3.2 of Kindle for iOS is available to download now.
As outlined in the app’s release notes, changes made in the update include:
- Adjustable Margins (iPad): Choose from three layouts for your preferred reading experience.
- Rapid Highlights: Quickly mark important passages for handy reference later.
- Improved Brightness Control: Refined the brightness slider to be more responsive and optimized font hues for better viewing.
- Highlighting for illustrations and photos in Print Replica Textbooks: You can now highlight photos, illustrations, tables, and charts.
- Notebook for Print Replica Textbooks: Notebook compiles all your bookmarks, notes, and highlighted passages, photos, and images. Tag and filter the most important items to study.
- Improved navigation for Print Replica Textbooks: Quickly flip through textbook pages and easily jump back-and-forth using the page thumbnails and back/forward buttons.
In a recent update to Kobo, a Kindle-competing e-book reading app, support for Adobe DRM ePubs and PDFs was added to the application. Apple fans can also use iBooks in order to get their e-book fix, on-the-go.
However, thanks to Amazon’s Kindle Store, Kindle for iOS remains a popular choice among e-book reading iDevice owners. The recently updated Kindle 3.2 is now available in the App Store free of charge – check out the new update, and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
