Search or scan with the new page flip feature
iOS Reading
June 28, 2016

For those who enjoy the Kindle app for iPhone or iPad, an update today, June 28, will change the way you read on your device. Kindle now has a page flip feature which allows you to get a quick glance at pages, jump to a specific section, or locate an illustration, all while saving your place.


How page flip works:

As you are reading your book, just tap on the page to activate the flip feature. The screen will pan out slightly and display a pin along with the page number for your spot. This allows you to flip through the pages to find what you are looking for and then just tap the pin to return and continue reading where you left off.

How to view the layout:

After you have activated page flip as mentioned, you will see a grid icon in the bottom corner. When you tap that icon, the pages will be redisplayed in a grid format for simple scanning. So, if you are in search of an illustration, photo, or chart contained in the book, you can find it easily with this feature.

The new page flip feature for the Kindle app is a nice addition to the options offered. It would be especially useful when searching for a particular section or image in the book. So, if you have not updated your app, make sure to head over to App Store and download it for free.
