Good e-Reader will be live on the scene in California when Amazon announces new products next week. In the meantime, the company has updated its app for the iPad to include some really nifty features. The first is Rapid Highlights, which is a very robust highlighting tool for your ebooks to mark important passages. Where the feature really shines is it has print replica textbooks for your back to school needs. You can highlight photos, illustrations, tables, and more and save them to an independent file.
The complete essence of this new Amazon Kindle build for the iPad is geared towards students. Print replica Rapid Highlights goes beyond being able to edit photos and charts by allowing you more creative freedom. You can compile all your bookmarks, notes, and augmented edited books and then tag and filter the most important items to study. There is also 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.
Finally, the money feature most ebook readers will love is the new adjustable margins. There are only three layouts to choose from, but it allows you to customize your reading experience a little bit better in landscape or portrait mode.
