Amazon has updated its official app for MAC Computers, bringing it to version 1.10.3. This new update brings gesture controls to the ebook experience, allowing you to swipe and pan. It will also now support Amazon’s new KF8 HTML5 ebook format, which will allow you to read some of the company’s next generation of content. One of the most exciting elements to this update is the ability to read complex Japanese characters. This may be a precursor to Amazon’s upcoming launch in Japan.
