Amazon has just updated its Kindle app with a number of features to improve syncing and navigation. Here’s the complete list of changes in version 4.4:
•Sync to the most recent page read – Any books you are reading on Kindle for iOS will now sync to the most recent page read across all Kindle devices and/or reading apps registered to your Amazon account. Customers can still manually sync to the furthest page read from the left navigation menu. •Kindle Placeholders – Allow customers the freedom to explore other areas of the book without losing their current place. Jump directly to previous locations with “placeholders” on the progress bar. •Notes Export – Studying for the next exam or writing the next term paper just got easier. Students can now export notes, highlights, and more to e-mail from their “Print Replica” textbooks, giving students easy access to their information. •Wikipedia Smart Lookup – Select a word and learn more from Wikipedia in the Info Card at the bottom of the page.A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Kindle can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. An update in June brought the ability to listen to audiobooks directly from the app. Earlier this month, Amazon also unveiled its Kindle Unlimited service. For $9.99 per month, users can read from a selection of more than 600,000 e-books. For other app news and reviews, see: Stack and connect the pieces in Puzzix, an addictive match-three puzzle game, Part 2 of the Dark Ages world arrives for Plants vs. Zombies 2, and Microsoft OneNote for the iPhone now allows users to insert files into notes and more.
