Amazon has just unleashed a massive new update for their Kindle app for iOS7. Users of the iPhone and iPad will finally be able to access X-Ray and Book Extras on their devices. This is the first time X-Ray is available anywhere but Amazon e-Readers and Tablets.
X-Ray is a popular feature that gives you an indication of the people, places, and things in a particular novel. You can get a sense of who the main characters they are and how often they are referenced throughout the book. If you are juggling many books at once or just coming back to one after a lengthy period of time, you can immediately see who the major players are.
The new Kindle app features an all-new new design, as well as Collections, which make it easy for customers to organize their books, documents, and magazines. Collections on Kindle are unique because customers can add their content to multiple categories, rather than just one – for example, put A Game of Thrones in “My Favorites” as well as “Fantasy Epics.”
