Amazon has updated their Kindle Cloud Reader and iOS apps today to support children’s books, comics, and graphic novels. Children’s books come to life with brilliant images, fixed layouts, and Kindle Text Pop-Up for supported titles to magnify text for easy reading on any size screen. Comics and graphic novels are presented in Kindle Panel View for supported titles, showcasing the artwork in a panel by panel experience that reads as the author intended. There is plenty of content available for you to download, with over 1,000 children’s and comic book titles in full color now available on the Kindle for iPad and Kindle Cloud Reader.
The integration of Comic Books, Graphic Novels and Kids books really takes advantage of Amazon’s new partners, like DC Comics. Users can now purchase comic books via the Kindle Cloud Reader and read them on their iPad. The Kindle Cloud Reader is basically an HTML5 online reading app that works with major internet browsers like Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. One of the big advantages of this cloud platform is that you can use it on your iPad to buy and read books. The ability to do this was lost when Amazon took away the ability to purchase content on the iOS apps.
